‘You aren’t just a bigot but pure evil’: BJP leader faces heat against hateful tweet on Shahrukh Khan

Legendary singer Lata Mangeshkar passed away at the age of 92 in the early hours of 6 February. She was cremated with state honors on Sunday at the Shivaji Park ground in Mumbai. During this, all the veterans and VVIP people from across the country reached to pay tribute to her. In the meantime, a video of Shahrukh Khan has become viral.

Shahrukh Khan recited Fateha in front of the body of Lata Mangeshkar and offered prayers by removing the mask. While sharing this video of King Khan, Bharatiya Janata Party leaders and supporters decided to make it appear on social media as if Khan was “spitting” on Mangeshkar. The state in-charge of BJP Haryana, Arun Yadav, was one of the first to make this allegation, tweeting “Kya isne thuka hai (Did he spit)?” along with a video clip.

This tweet of Haryana BJP’s IT and Social Media Head Arun Yadav went viral within minutes and all the celebs started slamming him.

Actress Swara Bhaskar shared Arun Yadav’s tweet and wrote, “Everyday this hateful Chintu gives proof of his tight-heartedness by hiding his hatred in the depths. Shahrukh is still praying but the mentality of these haters deserves to be spit out of this country!”

Congress leader Supriya Shrinet tweeted and wrote, “You aren’t just a bigot but pure evil to twist a dua said in reverence of the departed soul to spread hatred. Think about it people, will we let the evil win?”

Here were some of the other reactions to the tweet:

A picture of Shahrukh Khan and his manager Pooja Dadlani, who arrived at Lata Mangeshkar’s funeral, is becoming very viral on social media. In the picture, Shahrukh Khan is seen praying while Pooja is praying with folded hands. This picture is being liked very much and it is being termed as the beauty of India.
