Singer Abhijeet Bhattacharya has accused Twitter of being suppressive!
The Bollywood singer Abhijeet Bhattacharya has again fallen into a controversy after he made some sexist and offensive remarks on some female Twitter users, particularly the JNU student-activist, Shehla Rashid.
Twitter took an action over this and suspended the singer’s official account on this Tuesday. Now, Abhijeet has reacted over the action taken by the social networking site. He has accused Twitter of being suppressive.
In a Whatsapp conversation from Interlaken, Switzerland with IANS, the singer has reacted saying, “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.”
He added on saying, “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.”
Accusing the writer Arundhati Roy and the JNU students, he says, “All Arundhati and JNU group (are) behind this, after Paresh Rawal and me tweeted against Arundhati for her anti-India stand.”
After Twitter suspended Abhijeet’s account, another Bollywood singer, Sonu Nigam has quit Twitter. He has also requested to all the “logical and sensible patriots” to quit Twitter. Before this, Sonu was in news due to the azaan controversy.
Gratifying Sonu’s action, Abhijeet has said, “Sonu Nigam is the only daring person from our fraternity who raised this issue along with me.”
The singer is currently out of the country for a concert tour as well as a vacation as it is his marriage anniversary. Talking about this, the singer has said, “I am enjoying my concerts and holiday. Today is my wedding anniversary… A big party in Interlaken.”
