July 2, 2018

New Delhi: Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh today finally broke silence over the Twitter trolling of External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, terming it as wrong.
”What is going on is not right,” Mr Singh said when reporters repeatedly asked him to respond to the abusive language being used by some people against Ms Swaraj.
The External Affairs Minister was being trolled on Twitter, accused of appeasing Muslims after she helped an inter-faith couple get passport.
The couple alleged that a Passport Seva Kendra official Vikas Misra humiliated them at the passport office. He asked the husband to convert to Hinduism and accosted the wife for marrying a Muslim.
Following the couple’s complaint, the official was transferred,
A section of Twitterati attacked Ms Swaraj over her help to the couple and transferring the official.
Ms Swaraj had yesterday tweeted, ” In a democracy difference of opinion is but natural. Pls do criticise but not in foul language. Criticism in decent language is always more effective.”
A number of political leaders, including West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Bannerjee and former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister and PDP leader Mehbooba Mufti have come in support of Ms Swaraj.
