Zameer Ahmed Khan, a Congress legislator from Bengaluru’s Chamrajpet, attended an event to mark Ambedkar Jayanti and Eid Milan on Sunday. At the event, the MLA feeds Dalit Swamiji, and eats the same chewed food.
Message of brotherhood
Trying to send a message of brotherhood, MLA Zameer Ahmed Khan from Karnataka fed a bit of food to a Dalit priest, asked him to spit it out, and then ate it. The video has now gone viral.
The Congress MLA was at an event to mark Ambedkar Jayanti and Eid Milan on Sunday. Targeting radical elements, he said they were trying to create a rift between communities.
He then took a bit of food in his hand and fed it to the Dalit community’s Swami Narayana. The video shows the religious leader reaching out to return the gesture.
But the MLA held his hand and asked him to spit out the food and feed it to him. The religious leader relented, as others give a big round of applause.
