24 May 2017: Bollywood playback singers Abhijeet Bhattacharya was suspended his twitter account after he posted a string of “offensive” tweets over women. The romantic singer had received much flak on the social media site for a series of inflammatory tweets against the journalist.
But, after Bhattacharya twitter account suspended, Bollywood singer Sonu Nigam announced on Wednesday that he will quit Twitter and has urged all “logical and sensible patriots” to do the same, reported IANS.
Tweets following the suspension of singer Bhattacharya’s micro-blogging account, Sonu Nigam tweeted, “I quit Twitter today in defiance of this one-sided sham.”
He said, “One could disagree with Abhijeetda’s language but isn’t Shehla’s accusation that BJP has a sex racket, provocation enough to supporters?”
Nigam asked “If his account is deleted, why not her? And the other morons who hurl… abuses to every achiever?”
Bhattacharya abused some women user, mainly JNU student-activist Shehla Rashid. Talking openly about sex scandals involving BJP leaders Shehla was “abused by Abhijeet and hundreds of Sanghi trolls,” she said in a statement.
Abhijeet has tweeted: “There is a rumor she took money in advance for two hours and didn’t satisfy the client. Big racket.”
Abhijeet said to PTI that it is an unclear decision taken by Twitter, whether temporary or permanent, “Author Arundhati Roy and people supporting JNU. Yes, I just saw it. They are trying to block Paresh Rawal also. All Arundhati and JNU group behind this after Paresh Rawal and I tweeted against Arundhati for her anti-India stand.”
