Bengaluru: Suhana Sayed, 22, from Shimoga district was attacked online on various social media platforms for taking part in a Kananda singing reality show and singing a Hindu devotional song. Suhana got a standing ovation from the judges and the audience for her performance.

A page called Mangalore Muslims on Facebook said: “Suhana you have tarnished the Muslim Community by singing in front of men. Do not feel that you have achieved a great feat; people who learn to recite Quran in 6 months have achieved more. Your parents have encouraged you to show your beauty to other men, they will not go to heaven because of you. Please give up the pardah that you are wearing as you don't respect it.”

The judges after hearing Suhana sing appreciated her and urged her to become a symbol of unity between Hindu and Muslims. Kannada Music Director, Arjun Janya told her, “Your voice is really good; you have done a great job. By singing a Hindu devotional song you have become the symbol of unity and music is a medium where people can unite.”

Taken aback from the developments, Suhana has gone underground and is not reachable. However, many have come out in support of her taking on the Mangalore Muslim page.
