The Hush Post: External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj’s husband took to Twitter on Sunday to respond to a vicious troll. The troller had suggested physical violence against the external affairs minister over the grant of passport to an inter-faith couple last month.
On Sunday, former Mizoram governor Swaraj Kaushal posted on the microblogging site, “Your words have given us unbearable pain. Just to share with you, my mother died of cancer in 1993. Sushma was an MP and a former Education Minister. She lived in the hospital for a year. She refused to engage a medical attendant and attended on my dying mother personally. Governor Swaaj@governorswaraj.
The troller had said “when she comes home tonight why don’t u best her up & teach her not to do Muslim appeasement tell her Muslims will never ever vote for BJP”.
“Such was her devotion to the family. As per my father’s wish, she lit my father’s pyre. We adore her. Please do not use such words for her. We are first generation in law and politics. We pray for nothing more than her life. Pls convey my profound regards to your wife” he said in another tweet.
Sushma Swaraj had transferred a passport seva kendra official in Lucknow over allegedly insulting a Hindu-Muslim couple. According to the couple, the passport official Vikas Mishra asked the husband to convert to Hinduism and pulled up the wife for marrying a Muslim.
A section of social media had targeted Swaraj and her ministry for taking action against Mishra.
