The video irked many pro-Hindutva elements who had a problem with the dance as the boy’s name is Naveen K Razak.

Krishna Raj, a lawyer wrote, “Their names are Janaki Omkumar and Naveen K Razak. I feel something suspicious here. It would be better if the parents of Janaki become a little vigilant,”

Several other people on the internet have made similar comments implying that it is a conspiracy and that it was a case of love jihad.

Few even overstepped by warning Janaki’s parents that their daughter will one day be trafficked to Syria to fight for ISIS if they don’t pay attention. Although such comments were slammed by the larger public including many doctors who said they don’t treat patients based on their religion.
