From Amruta Fadnavis to Sushma Swaraj: Right-Wing Trolls Don’t Care About Who They Attack

When it comes to cyber trolling, the right wing cyber army doesn’t spare anyone. From Sushma Swaraj to Amruta Fadnavis, they are least bothered about the person’s political ideology. Cyber trolls can’t stand anyone who shows any leniency towards people from the minority communities.

When it comes to women, the abuse and name-calling become more intense. There have been instances where even their family is’nt even spared. Some time back, someone made a rape threat to Congress Spokesperson Priyanka Chaturvedi’s daughter, many even mocked Sushma Swaraj for her health problems.

Last year, Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis’s wife was trolled and abused for promoting a Christmas themed charitable event in Mumbai.

It started when Amruta Fadnavis put out a tweet about the event organised by a FM channel

It was just an event which Amruta decided to be part of, but trolls brought a religious angle to it.

It turned into name calling and giving tags

Memes were made to mock her

Accoding to right-wing trolls, all events should be for Hindus, not any other religions

Even though Amruta had put out a tweet to clarify, trolls did not care.

This is not the first time. Right-wing groups have targeted several right-leaning public figures, on almost a daily basis. Union Environment Minister Harsh Vardhan was attacked for supporting Supreme Court’s ban on firecrackers during Diwali, he was forced to delete it. The amount of poison which has infected certain sections of Hindus by right-wing organisations for political gain seems to be coming back to bite them. If they don’t check this trend, it will eventually destroy them.
