On Saturday, Hussein Kesvani, an editor at Mel Magazine and “head doctor” of the Trashfuture Podcast, posted the following message on Twitter:
“I love being a doctor and whispering verses of the Quran into the ears of white babies, and therefore making them Muslim. The hospital I work for knows I have been doing this for years, but can’t strike me off because they are scared of being called racist”

The controversial tweet has garnered quite a bit of attention from fellow users. Here are some interesting replies:
You did a great job on my second dr kesvani, but I think you got something mixed up because he’s only following shakira law and his hips WILL NOT lie

I’ve always wondered how I knew the entire Quran by heart before I ever learned how to read.

Is this after you were fired from the coffeehouse for charging white people the price of soup for a cup of coffee

This is a marvellous tweet. It also brings all the bedbugs hiding among my followers out into the light so they can be sprayed.

It’s certainly a sign of the times when it’s totally acceptable (see the 18K likes) to crack jokes about infants of a certain race.
If the roles were reversed, there would probably be blood in the streets.
What do you think about Kesvani’s tweet? Was it just a harmless joke? Let us know by leaving a comment below.
