Amid the ongoing Nupur Sharma controversy, a video of PM Modi with a sheikh is going viral on the internet. Further, sharing the video, a Facebook MONU JHA user wrote, “Children keep doing Nupur Nupur here, Papa Ji brought a gold necklace of 150 tola from Sheikh Sahib, Modi ji insults the blind devotees..”
(“बच्चे यहां नुपुर नुपुर करते रहे और पापा जी शेख साहब से 150 तोले का सोने का हार ले आए गजब बेइज्जती करते हैं मोदी जी अंधभक्तो की”)
