Jimikki Kammal had become the theme of Kerala and Malayalees everywhere in 2017. However, nobody thought three hijab-clad girls dancing to the peppy number will be massively trolled bringing in the communal angle. While, a lot of social media users came out in support of the girls, bashing the orthodox mindset of people commenting hiding behind the carpet of anonymity, the trolling did not stop. The college students were dancing to Jimikki Kammal in a flash mob organised by the medical department on World Aids Day (December 1). Now, the Student Federation of India is replying to the trolls in the best way possible, with more dances. Students activists across Kerala are supporting the girls by dancing to different songs and uploading the videos on social media as befitting replies to the insensitive tweets.Also Read - Karnataka Asks Students, Employees In Kerala To Defer Their Return To State Till October End | Details Here
