The Kerala State Youth Commission today registered a case against those who had made abusive remarks on social media against three Muslim women students for dancing in a flash mob at Malappuram recently to mark World Aids day.

The women, wearing hijabs and jeans, had performed the Entammede Jimmikki Kammal a popular number from a Mohanlal film. The video had gone viral, but the women were trolled online and insulting language was used for them on social media.

The chairperson of the commission M D Josephine on Wednesday, directed cyber cell of police to take immediate legal action against the persons who were part of the campaign and submit a report regarding this.

Several small groups of students had danced on the street at the Kottakkunnu junction, Mallapuram, to spread awareness about AIDS. But, a section of people responded with crass comments against the girls, in social media arguing that public performance by the hijab-clad girls has crossed the line of morality. The video of the flash mob at the busy traffic junction had invited the wrath of a section of the Muslim community. "In fact, the college had come forward to conduct the flash mobs", he said.
