AAP Leader Atishi Clarifies Misunderstanding Over School Inauguration Incident

    A video circulating on social media purportedly showing Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader and Delhi Education Minister Atishi Marlena facing criticism for minority appeasement has been debunked. The viral video allegedly depicts Atishi apologizing after saying “Jai Shri Ram” at a public event in Shri Ram Colony. However, a closer examination reveals a different narrative.

    The claim circulated alongside the video suggests that Atishi faced backlash from Muslim attendees for chanting “Jai Shri Ram.” Contrary to this claim, the incident stemmed from a misunderstanding regarding the name of a newly inaugurated school.

    In the video, residents of Shri Ram Colony expressed displeasure when Atishi referred to the school as the Khajuri Khas school instead of the Shri Ram Colony school. The attendees objected to her choice of name, asserting that it belonged to Shri Ram Colony. Atishi promptly apologized and corrected herself, acknowledging the school as belonging to Shri Ram Colony.

    A thorough investigation into the incident revealed official visuals from the inauguration, where Atishi did not chant “Jai Shri Ram” as alleged. Instead, she focused on highlighting the features and facilities of the newly constructed school in Khajuri Khas.

    Atishi’s speech emphasized the significance of providing quality education to children in densely populated areas like Karawal Nagar, Sonia Vihar, and Khajuri Khas. The misunderstanding arose when she inadvertently referred to the school by the wrong name, leading to the residents’ objection.

    In conclusion, the circulating video misrepresents the incident, falsely attributing it to religious tensions. Atishi’s clarification underscores the importance of accurate reporting and avoiding misinformation.
