External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on Saturday night put out a twitter poll asking her followers whether or not they approve such trolls. Since then Twitter has been reacting to the Union Minister's online poll. She even pinned the thread of tweets which trolled her.
The Union minister was trolled for her decision of granting a passport to the inter-faith couple and transferring the official concerned who had denied them the same.
Friends : I have liked some tweets. This is happening for the last few days. Do you approve of such tweets ? Please RT— Sushma Swaraj (@SushmaSwaraj) June 30, 2018
Her Stand has received immense support by many people including the President of India Ramnath Kovind. Sushma retweeted the President's tweet expressing her gratitude.
Former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister and People Democratic Party chief Mehbooba Mufti also came out in her support today and said that the trolls are "absolutely outrageous."
Horrified by the vicious trolling @SushmaSwaraj ji has been subjected to . Absolutely outrageous! If our own Minister of External Affairs is not spared, what hope is there for any other woman?— Mehbooba Mufti (@MehboobaMufti) July 1, 2018
Renowned journalist and author of "I am Troll" inside BJP's secret digital Army, Swati Chaturvedi condemned the attack of troll army.
Shameful that none of Sushma Swaraj's cabinet colleagues have condemned the hate filled trolling she & her family continue to face. Has Shah issued a gag order?— Swati Chaturvedi (@bainjal) June 30, 2018
Famous journalist Barkha Dutt supported Sushma for taking the troll head on and even questioned the silence of women leaders in BJP.
Am glad @SushmaSwaraj has decided to take the filth of trolls head on. But why are her cabinet colleagues - even the women- silent on the sexist, communal toxicity unleashed on her ? My piece in @washingtonpost https://t.co/xeMMGnrQNN— barkha dutt (@BDUTT) July 1, 2018
