Bengaluru: In a bizarre incident, Karnataka Congress MLA BZ Zameer Ahmed Khan fed Dalit Swami Narayana only to make him remove the food from his mouth and consume it himself. The video has now gone viral.
The Congress MLA claimed that he did this to show that there was no difference in caste and religion among the people. However, the video has evoked mixed responses on social media.
The incident took place on Sunday, May 22 when Dalit seer Narayana Swamiji was attending a function to celebrate Dr. Ambedkar Jayanthi and Eid Milad. While delivering a speech Zameer became emotional and before the audience could realize what was happening, he shocked everyone with his experiment.
After eating the food which was removed from the mouth of the Dalit Swami, Zameer stated that ‘humanity binds all human beings and is above caste and religion.’
Zameer also served food to the civic workers during the function. He also took food from a Muslim Moulvi and ate it. He said that the true religion was to live like human beings.
He further stated that caste and religion would never interfere with human bondage. “All of us should live like brothers,” he said.
