As per a media report in the Times of India, the pediatrician had filed a complaint with the Belthangady police.
The tweet said they do not want women and girls to wear hijabs. “This is neither a Taliban state, Saudi Arabia or madrassa and the hijab is unnecessary. If you have to wear hijab, go to a madrassa,” it said.
A screenshot of the doctor holding a child in his hands has been uploaded along with the tweet, Shantanu said in his complaint.
The doctor alleged that using the post, some people have started spreading malicious propaganda against the hospital where he works.
“This is an attempt to sully my image. Having studied in medical college run by minorities, I know what hijabs are,” he said in the complaint.
The doctor said that he had two twitter accounts, of which he was not accessing one since had lost its password and ID. He reportedly got to know about it when his friends told him that his posts had gone viral on social media and also reached his college group, following which he realized that his account was hacked and he filed a complaint.
As per the TOI report, the doctor stated, “It is unfortunate that the miscreants were trying to spread hatred and bring a bad name to the hospital I work for”.
