Srinagar:Former Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir, Mehbooba Mufti on Sunday said that she was horrified after witnessing “vicious” online trolling done to Minister of External Affairs Sushma Swaraj after she had assisted an inter religion couple in obtaining a passport.
Mufti took to her twitter handle and expressed extreme shock at the treatment Sushma Swaraj had received online by right wing Hindu extremists.
“Horrified by the vicious trolling @SushmaSwaraj ji has been subjected to . Absolutely outrageous! If our own Minister of External Affairs is not spared, what hope is there for any other woman?” Mehbooba wrote on her twitter.
Earlier, Sushma Swaraj had been a victim of online hateful trolling after she had assisted an interfaith couple in obtaining a passport. Swaraj was again trolled on Twitter on Saturday and accused of appeasing Muslims. Her husband Swaraj Kaushal tweeted a screenshot of a post by a Twitter user who asked him to teach the minister not to do Muslim appeasement .
Earlier a Passport Seva Kendra official, Vikas Mishra, in Lucknow was transferred after the interfaith couple alleged that he humiliated them when they went to the office with their passport applications recently.
According to the couple, Mishra asked the husband to convert to Hinduism and pulled up the wife for marrying a Muslim.
A section of social media had attacked Swaraj and the ministry for taking action against Mishra, claiming that he was just doing his duty.
