Incidentally, did any of these self appointed custodians of morality speak up against Clarence school's diktat asking students to carry Bible?"

Amid the call of boycotting Muslim traders in Karnataka by some group on March 30, Shaw tweeted, "Karnataka has always forged inclusive economic development and we must not allow such communal exclusion- If ITBT became communal it would destroy our global leadership.
