targeted because I am a Muslim woman

infamous for his crass statements on women, religion and even the Constitution, Uttara Kannada MP Anantkumar Hegde outdid himself on Sunday. In a display of crude Islamophobia and misogyny, Anantkumar Hegde targeted Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee President Dinesh Gundu Rao's wife in a tweet. "I shall definitely answer this guy Dinesh Gundu Rao's queries, before which could he please reveal himself as to who he is along with his achievements? I only know him as a guy who ran behind a Muslim lady," Anantkumar Hegde tweeted.
