FIR against Sagarika for tweeting ‘Mobs are hunting and killling Muslims across India’

NEW DELHI: Noted journalist and author Sagarika Ghose on Friday created an outrage on the internet with her tweet claiming that Muslims were being killed across the country.

The noted journalist tweeted, “Mobs are hunting and killing Muslims across India and THERE IS NO JUSTICE FOR THE KILLERS! WAKE UP, GOl!”

She didn’t give any reference to any incident but it seems that she was possibly referring to the recent lynching in Jharkhand in her tweet.

Ghose’s tweet triggered a Twitter storm and trolls asked her to not make any baseless claims . One user even claimed to have filed an FIR against her.

Facing backlash, Ghose later deleted her tweet  and also apologised for the same.
