New Delhi: Abhijit Bhattacharya had recently made objectionable comments on noted author Arundhati Roy and JNU student leader Shehla Rashid. While many people, including Singer Sonu Nigam, came in support of Abhijit’s comments, while many other came opposing it.
Singer Hariharan has recently come forward to slam Abhijit’s languages on social media. Hariharan, who completed 48 years in the film industry, said: “The language we use in our drawing room, we can’t use it on the road. We take special care in our language while speaking in public. Similarly, you can not use any language on social media. He said, If you have to do anything then you can use a toilet, you can not dirty the platform,” NDTV reported.
BJP leader and actor Paresh Rawal had also recently posted an inappropriate Tweet about the famous writer Arundhati Roy. In order to support the same tweet, Abhijit Bhattacharya, while retaking it, wrote that Arundhati Roy should be moved in the jeep by the army in Kashmir.
Twitter India suspended his Twitter account due to comments on women but at the same time Abhijeet’s defence went off from the playback singer Sonu Nigam also on the second day and he deleted his Twitter account on his own.
Hariharan, who is singing a song for the Narmada Seva Yatra in Madhya Pradesh, said further, “Everyone in this country has the right to share their opinion, you can also share, but I think we should have restraint on our language on social media. I think that the appropriate language could also describe your emotions. Celebrities are heard in our country, they are followed. In this case, it becomes our responsibility to keep in mind what language we use.”
After joining the work of cleaning the Narmada through a song, he told that “although this work is very big in itself, I feel that it is beneficial for any celebrity to join a cause, as celebrities are given a great respect in our country. We are a beautiful country, but it is also true that our population is growing steadily. In such a situation, it is our responsibility to clean it and we will have to understand it.”
