Anurag Kashyap is always very vocal about his political orientation. He questions and tweets and views very radically. Now since BJP has won the elections BJP supporters are on the roll. They are elated and happy about the governance that has been formed. But isn’t it wrong to judge someone’s political alignment? Everyone has the right to speak their opinion. But to be mocked and harassed for it is wrong.
Recently Anurag Kashyap tweeted that because of his outspoken nature someone threatened his daughter to be raped. The person was a BJP supporter and tagged Modi into his tweet, asking what should he do with these people.
Dear @narendramodi sir. Congratulations on your victory and thank you for the message of inclusiveness. Sir please also tell us how do we deal with these followers of yours who celebrate your victory by threatening my daughter with messages like this for me being your dissenter. pic.twitter.com/jC7jYVBCi8

Is it right to shame someone like this? Is it okay to call out women who are relatable to him? This kind of bullying has come a long way now. A person is subject to his own opinions but this is pure hatred.
Twitter was in splits and people were debating whether he did the right thing or not.
These followers of Neech Aadmi do his job so he doesn’t have to get his hands dirty personally. This is what #India has voted for in 2019. #BJPseBetiBachao There will be more of this & people will actually defend this behaviour & promote it too. Here as well as in real life.

This is absolutely unacceptable… People who pride themselves in being perceived as proud Indians and displaying such behavior should be subjected to strict punishment.. One can't abuse, threaten anybody under the guise of freedom of expression.

If the PM is so incompetent to follow ppl who abuse others on Twitter, then how big a failure is he

We get this kind of stuff too. You'll find scumbags all across the spectrum & you don't have to be so sore. Tag the police instead of the PM. We get that you're her dad & you got extra emotional, but remember that most dads won't even know & it happens to all of us.

Dear Anurag ji
I am also a Modi suporter.
But can't agree some one threatening your daughter.
Kindly stay safe and protect your precious daughter.
These people are cowards. Just barking dogs won't bite

If all of us r as educated as eacother then there will be equality. I get trolled & threatened by ur followers or others all the time. Wht shd I do? So perhaps, let’s not b sensitive about it & not b an untouchable. Public life hs its problems. V need to learn how to deal wt them

It is unethical to give threats like these to people.
We should move forward from it.
