Mumbai: About a week after Union Minister Sushma Swaraj was trolled for helping an interfaith couple, an IIT educated techie in a shocking tweet sent to her husband Swaraj Kaushal asked him to "beat her up" for appeasing Muslims.
"When she comes home tonight why don't U beat her up & teach her not to do Muslim appeasment tell her Muslims will never ever vote for BJP (sic)," Mukesh Gupta posted, tagging both Sushma Swaraj and her husband, a lawyer.
"Who else can teach @SushmaSwaraj a lesson or two," said the troll whose profile says he's a B.Tech.
Gupta deleted his tweet soon later. However, the Union Minister's husband re-tweeted the screen shot with caption, "Friends, please see this!"
The attacks on social media on the high profile couple were condemned by Twitter users, with a number of people asking Mukesh Gupta to apologise. "And this dangerous mindset guy has studied in IIT. Even education can't cure such people", Mehek, who uses handler @MehekF, wrote on Twitter.
The trolls, some of them "proud to be followed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi", are angry over Sushma Swaraj for initiating action against an official who humiliated and refused to issue passports to the interfaith couple. They abused the minister for her swift action, and mocked even her illness while posting hateful and abusive tweets.
"Biased decision #ISupportVikasMishra shame on you mam...is it effect of your islamic kidney(sic)??" Indra Bajpai who uses Twitter handler @bajpai_indra wrote.
Sushma took it on the chin and retweeted the above tweet saying, "I was out of India from 17th to 23rd June 2018. I do not know what happened in my absence. However, I am honoured with some tweets. I am sharing them with you. So I have liked them."
Sushma Swaraj underwent kidney transplant few months ago. No body knows who donated the kidney for her.
"In an failed attempt to appease Muslims you are asking govt officials to bend rules for them..??? Shame on @SushmaSwaraj and @BJP4India and shame on us for trusting you as HinduRakshaks", Bhanu Pratap Jain wrote @bhanu828.
