No Swara Bhaskar, we will not be silenced : Read the defamation notice and our response

On 20th September 2018, OpIndia.com received a frivolous defamation notice from Swara Bhaskar. The notice pertained to three articles that had been published by OpIndia.com in the due course of time.

The first article, headlined “Swara Bhaskar should be the last person to accuse anyone else of being a ‘rape apologist’”, was published on 18th April 2018. The article pertained to a Twitter spat between columnist Shefali Vaidya and Swara Bhaskar, where Swara Bhaskar herself had called Vaidya a “rape apologist”. It is interesting to note here, that according to Swara, what is good for the goose is certainly not good for the gander.

The second article headlined “Lack of comprehension skills or deliberate misquoting? Swara Bhaskar plays victim card”, was published on 31st January 2018. This article pertained to Twitter spat between Vivek Agnihotri and Swara Bhaskar where Swara, according to us, had gone on to misinterpret Agnihotri’s tweet and played victim. It is interesting to note that Swara herself has several times accused others of playing the victim. It is clear, that according to Swara, what is good for the goose is certainly not good for the gander.
