Chandigarh: Irked over suspension of his Twitter account Bollywood singer Abhijeet Bhattacharya termed the social networking website as “anti-national, anti-Prime Minister Narendra Modi and anti-Hindu”. Abhijeet an active Hindutva supporter, not new to controversies. He was using his twitter handle to abuse those opposing the fascist Hindutva ideology.
On Tuesday, Twitter suspended his account over sexist, immodest and offensive remarks targetted at some women users, particularly JNU student-activist Shehla Rashid, following which Twitter took the action.
“Twitter is a platform for anti-nationals, anti-Indian Army, anti-Modi, anti-Hindu and for terrorist supporters. I would say all are Naxals, they should be punished severely. It’s jihadi Twitter,” Abhijeet reportedly told IANS in a WhatsApp conversation from Interlaken in Switzerland.
He reportedly declared: “We are not only singers… We are the voice of our nation and come out openly against anti-nationals. So, Twitter is trying to shut our voice”.
