Scratch a self-proclaimed liberal and find a hater who rejoices in the death of someone because their political ideologies differ. And it is not someone who is ‘followed by a leader’ who is rejoicing. It is those who whined about someone who ‘rejoiced’ when a senior journalist was shot dead last year because the PM followed.
Former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee has been on life support after his health deteriorated. While many people poured their wishes for his speedy recovery, there were others who scorned and were spiteful of him. Here are some of the tweets by so-called liberals showing their hate for a man who is probably breathing his last.

One self-proclaimed ‘free-thinker’ referred to Vajpayee as a founder of a terrorist organisation. He even wished death upon him by rooting to ‘pull the plug’.

Disgraced former IPS officer Sanjiv Bhatt, who regularly spews venom, too chimed in with his 2 cents.
Do you now realise what was our original sin? It was allowing Vajpayee to fool us with his masquerade. It was then that we allowed blatant majoritarian communalism to get a foot in the door.#OriginalSin

A journalist associated with The Wire, the left propaganda website which regularly indulges in spreading lies, already declared at Vajpayee dead at 2:42 pm and whined about the road blocks that would follow the demise.

She later deleted the tweet.
While death is inevitable, and all of us must die at some point, to generate so much hate for a 93-year-old breathing his last is rather unfortunate.
