Woman takes traffic cop to task for 'speaking to her in Punjabi in a Muslim country'; watch

Chandigarh, February 19

Is it an offence to speak in Punjabi in a Muslim country? Does it offend a woman when she's spoken to in Punjabi? Questions like these were raised after a video went viral, where a woman was seen arguing with a policeman, who spoke to her in Punjabi.

In the 2:20-minute video, the woman’s car was stopped at the toll where she was heard accusing the policeman of abusing her in Punjabi. Based on the conversation, the clip has surfaced from a Muslim country.

The woman alleged: “He told me in Punjabi ... Madam! Just take down the glass slowly. Who is he to say this?”

Meanwhile, the person filming the video asks the woman that the policeman was just asking something from her. But the woman claimed that the policeman didn’t ask for anything, instead said some “nonsense” in Punjabi.

The policeman responds and questions the woman whether it is a crime to talk to someone in Punjabi. The woman answered that in a “Muslim country, how can you talk to a woman like this”.

After half-a-minute, the woman starts yelling at the man who is filming the video, and asks if he doesn’t have a sense of humour, and don’t women have rights in this country.

The video generated a huge buzz on all social media platforms.
