BENGALURU:Father of the girl Amulya Leona who was caught on camera chanting Pakistan Zindabad at an anti-CAA event in Bengaluru, has expressed shock over her daughter’s actions and made a statement saying that he has no problem if his daughter is jailed.
In the video that is making round on social media it can be seen that just as Owaisi was leaving the stage, the women started sloganeering “Pakistan zindabad”.
However, it immediately caught attention of Owaisi who turned around and tried to take the microphone away from her. Afterwards, she was forced to leave the stage.
Soon after the incident Amulya was booked under sedition charges and has now been sent to a 14 days judicial custody. After interrogation she will be produced before a local court.
Her father who is a resident of Koppa in Karnataka’s Chickmagalur was quoted as saying, “Let my daughter rot in a jail. Let the police break her legs. I have no objection. She has caused so much misery to my family”.
The visibly upset father also said that he will not be aiding his daughter in fighting the sedition case.
Leona a 19-year-old girl is an undergraduate student in NMKRV College for Women with “revolutionary ideas” who normally does not listen to anyone.
Amulya Leona Noronha, who has been booked for sedition for raising pro-Pakistan slogans at an anti-CAA event in Bengaluru, is no stranger to controversy.
Last month, Noronha sparked a row when she heckled Mahesh Vikram Hegde, the editor of Right-wing website Postcard News, at the Mangaluru airport asking him to sing Vande Mataram to prove his “Indian-ness”.
In a video shared on social media, Noronha could be heard saying, “Sing Vande Mataram if you are an Indian. We will also sing with you.”
Noronha was accompanied by a Karnataka Congress spokesperson, Kavita Reddy, and another activist during the incident. In the video, Hegde didn’t yield to the heckling.
After she was arrested in Bengaluru, Hegde took to social media and said the latest incident proved why he did not sing Vande Mataram “in front of these”.
