Twitter users come out in support of OpIndia co-founder as trolls target his personal life

It is well known that those who call themselves “liberals” are the most intolerant bunch in India, but not only are they intolerant, they are vicious and they believe in total annihilation of people who dare to disagree with them, or worse, challenge their narrative.

They indulge in character assassination (physical assassination is usually outsourced to the left wing terrorists, who are not yet operative in urban India) and they try to hurt your personal life. They want to make lives of people hell, so that no one ever dares to disagree with them again.

This is what they tried to do earlier with Rahul Raj, one of the co-founders of OpIndia.com and who also runs a popular Facebook page called “Bhak Sala”.

The attack on Rahul was initiated and championed by an abusive Twitter user Swati Chaturvedi, who claims to be a journalist.

We had earlier published a report how one of her journalistic reports was devoid of any facts and bordered on cheap rumor mongering.

Perhaps that fact-checking of her claims by us infuriated her. Since she didn’t have facts on her side, she decided to use slander and abuse as tools. In a series of tweets, which were nothing but targeted harassment, she claimed Rahul Raj of stalking her and being abusive.

If keeping track of her articles to do fact-checking is “stalking”, we at OpIndia.com will continue doing this not only to her, but to every journalist who wants to get away after claiming imaginary things. So far as being “abusive” is concerned, it’s ironical that it comes from Swati, who herself is abusive.

However, that doesn’t give anyone a license to abuse her. But the fact here was that she failed to produce a single tweet where Rahul Raj had used abusive language against her.

But as always, facts didn’t matter to Swati. She continued her tirade against Rahul Raj, and was later joined by a few journalists and trolls belonging to a couple of political parties, towards whom she is friendly.

Apart from slandering Rahul Raj’s character for being a stalker and abusive (without giving any proof), she tried to hurt Rahul’s professional life by complaining to the company with which Rahul is employed.

Her fanatical and senseless behavior was soon noticed by many Twitter users who decided to speak against this targeted harassment of Rahul Raj. Soon after hashtag #Support_Bhak_Sala was trending on Twitter. Following are some of the selected tweets people came up with to support Rahul Raj:
