Anurag Kashyap trolled on Twitter after making foolish statements

The new year has just begun and maverick director of Bollywood, Anurag Kashyap has already staked claim for the most foolish statement of 2017. Last year too Kashyap faced the wrath of social media for his idiotic comments, and 2017 was no different.

We had yesterday reported how 16-year-old Dangal star Zaira Wasim was forced into an apology by vile and abusive comments from Jihadi radical Islamists. We had also reported that now that a Bollywood actor had been targeted, it was time for the likes of Anurag Kashyap, to practise what they preach, and stand up and speak up for such bullied actors:


Our Co-Founder  politely asked Anurag Kashyap to voice his concerns and show solidarity with Wasim:


But instead of attacking the Jihadi radical Islamists, Anurag Kashyap attacked  by hilariously equating a man with a keyboard with men armed with AK 47s and bombs, and proceeded to name and  condemn    first, and then, condemned an unknown quantity called “them”:


Perhaps Kashyap’s obvious reluctance to name these “them” as opposed to his openness in naming our co-founder, showed the difference between the two, and social media users drove home the point to Kashyap:

After this, perhaps having an epiphany,   realised that Kashyap’s next move would be to play victim:


And that is EXACTLY what happened. A good 12 hours after his one and only tweet condemning these unnamed people who bullied Wasim, Anurag Kashyap took out the victim card, and once again, tagged Prime Minister Narendra Modi as if he was personally overseeing the entire social media outrage against Kashyap:

Once again Kashyap was trolled by social media users for his bizarre outburst:

It is interesting to note that the issue started because Radical Islamic Jihadis silenced a 16-year-old Kashmiri Muslim actress, and Anurag Kashyap managed to bring the entire issue at the doorstep of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Also, Kashyap’s limits of bravado get revealed here: When asked pointedly by social media users to slam Radical Islamic Jihadi elements by naming them, Kashyap shies away from naming them. Suddenly the brave face of Bollywood is short of courage and cannot even type out three simple words. Further, even his condemnation of this unnamed lot is not unequivocal but he has to equate a tax paying professionally educated Indian, with terrorists, and only then can he condemn “them”.

But this same bravado mixed with a sense of idiocy returns when he has to randomly blame a social media reaction on the Prime Minister of India. The fear he felt in naming Islamic fundamentalists disappears, and he bravely tags the Prime Minister and holds him responsible for something he wouldn’t even know about. If Kashyap believes all trolls are directed by Modi, he should surely have no difficulty in believing that all Jihadi Radical Islamists are directed by Hafiz Saeed and ISI, but one could not see a single tweet from Kashyap tagging Saeed or ISI or any such organisation.

So consumed was Kashyap in his hatred for a man and his supporters, that he even wished one user would have died:


If the same comment was used by a “troll”, mainstream media would have been up in arms over a “threat” issued to a Bollywood star. In the end, Kashyap seems to have embarrassed himself and Bollywood once again.

It is rather ironic that 80+ countries adopted a joint communique for lasting peace in Ukraine without inviting the other party in the conflict—Russia—to the Summit. It seemed like the only agenda of this communique was to build a consensus that peace in Ukraine must not be at the expense of territorial integrity.
