NEW DELHI: A Kashmiri student of Government Medical College (GMC), Jammu has sustained head injuries and received over 10 stitches after being attacked with an iron rod due to an altercation over the recently-released Bollywood film The Kerala Story. The victim is a final-year Muslim student from Chenab Valley and was allegedly assaulted by a Hindu student on Sunday. The videos of the incident have gone viral on social media.
The incident took place after Hindu students allegedly posted “derogatory” messages against Muslim community.
“After watching the film The Kerala Story, some Hindu students of MBBS first year had posted derogatory messages against Muslims on the college's WhatsApp groups. They posted that it is a must-watch movie for everyone and planned to watch it together in a hostel room. A Muslim Kashmiri student studying in MBBS first year objected to it saying that such messages should not be shared in educational groups,” a final year student hailing from Kashmir told Careers360.
“Rattled by the objections, the Hindu students planned to assault the objecting student. They also called a few outsiders and while they were on their way to attack the students, they were intercepted by senior students from Kashmir. During the altercation, the Hindu students attacked them and one of them has been injured badly and hospitalised now,” he added.
Meanwhile, a student from Jammu said that Muslim students “protested” against the movie and this led to the said incident.
"Hindu students from Jammu and other regions had planned to watch The Kerala Story together in their hostel rooms. Muslim students from Kashmir and Jammu protested against the movie and assaulted Hindu students. In the altercation, a final year MBBS student was injured badly," said a student of GMC Jammu who wants to remain anonymous. He also alleged that Muslim students also “restrict Hindu students not to play music”.
Nasir Khuehami, national convenor of Jammu and Kashmir Students Association (JKSA) has “strongly” urged Jammu and Kashmir Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha to intervene and take immediate action to address the situation.

GMC Jammu and Resident Doctors Association (RDA) of GMC have not issued any statement on the incident. ‘The Kerala Story' released in thatres on May 5 shows the story of three young girls from various regions of Kerala who are abducted and subsequently converted to Islam and later compelled to join ISIS as a terrorist. The film’s trailer has falsely claimed that 32,000 Kerala women had been radicalised by Islamic fundamentalists – a lie its makers had to later correct. The film, supported by the BJP government, has been widely regarded as inciting hatred against Muslims.
