Richa Chadha’s ‘public interest notice’: ‘Get rid of Hindutva supporters, save religion’

NEW DELHI: Richa Chadha, who has been an active opponent of bigotry and politics of hate has issued a ‘public interest’ notice to save Hinduism from supporters of Hindutva.

Taking to Twitter, Richa said, “Yes, Hinduism is indeed in danger in India. But Hinduism faces threats from supporters of Hindutva. Get rid of Hindutva supporters and save the religion. Issued in public interest.”

The Fukrey star’s tweet has come amidst a controversy over a portrait of Pakistan founder Mohammed Ali Jinnah at Aligrah Muslim University (AMU), where a group of Hindutva goons had attacked students as they tried to enter the campus.

Richa had earlier had slammed the RSS chief, Mohan Bhagwat, after he made comments disparaging Indian Army.

Richa’s viral tweet had read, “By criticising the Indian Army, Mr Bhagwat has exposed himself. What can one expect anyway from the leader of an organisation that didn’t participate in the freedom struggle but brags about being a militant organisation?This farzi and tacky ‘nationalism’ needs to go pronto.”
