Will you call him by the name of a terrorist?" The student, who was unhappy with his teacher’s remarks, further added, “How can you call me like that? In front of so many people? In class.

Professor Ashok Swain captioned the video," “A Professor in a classroom in India calling a Muslim student ‘terrorist’ - This is what it has been to be a minority in India!” Users started pouring in reactions as one of them stated, “Hats off to this young man who refused to silently accept this nonsense.”
