Rangoli Chandel’s Twitter account was recently suspended after she posted what was seen as a ‘hate tweet’ against a particular community, in which she lashed out at those involved in the Moradabad stone pelting incident on doctors and policemen.
Ajaz Khan, meanwhile, was arrested by Mumbai Police last evening after he posted a Facebook Live video in which he ranted about how the Muslim community is being held responsible and targeted for everything happening in the country.
Notably, in the wake of the Tablighi Jamaat congregation coming to light, as well as repeated incident of attacks on frontline COVID-19 fighters, there have been incidents of ‘discrimination,’ as well as physical violence against Muslims in some parts of the country.
Several high-profile figures, including wrestler and BJP leader Babita Phogat, have come under-fire for their alleged anti-Muslim tweets.
Kangana, meanwhile, jumped to the defence of her sister, as well as Babita Phogat, releasing a video on Saturday, in which she appealed to the government to ‘take action’ against Twitter and ‘and make sure that it doesn’t shut those people from the platform who are talking about their nation and promoting nationalism.’
As per the official figures of the Government of India, the Tablighi Jamaat has contributed to nearly 30% of the overall COVID-19 cases in the country.
