Manipal university professor who compared Muslim student to Ajmal Kasab faces suspension

The Manipal Institute of Technology (MIT) in Karnataka's Udupi district of India, decided to ban the professor from taking classes after the latter allegedly asked the name of a Muslim student and linked him with 'Ajmal Kasab', the Pakistan-based lone terrorist captured alive for 26/11 Mumbai attacks and executed in 2012.

Earlier on Monday, a video was widely shared on social media, wherein a student and a professor were engaged in a war of words after the professor allegedly referred the Muslim student to terrorist Ajmal Kasab.

'Oh, you are like Kasab'

In the 45-second purported video, uploaded by several users on Twitter, the engineering student, can be seen confronting his teacher in front of his classmates. The professor had reportedly asked the student his name, and on hearing a Muslim name, said, "Oh, you are like Kasab!"

'26/11 was not funny'

"26/11 was not funny. Being a Muslim in this country and facing all this every day is not funny, sir. You can`t joke about my religion, that too in such a derogatory manner. It`s not funny sir, it`s not," the student shouted as the teacher tried to downplay his own remark. "You are just like my son..." the professor said, trying to pacify the student. "Will you talk to your son like that? Will you call him by the name of a terrorist?" the student replied.
