Petty lies: Times of India presents a conversation selectively just to convince its readers that Anurag Kashyap ‘slammed’ a Twitter user

Earlier today, Film producer Anurag Kashyap, who has often been a severe critic of PM Modi and the BJP had tweeted that fake videos and rumours have created a riot-like situation in Uttar Pradesh’s Aligarh.

In a deceptive report published by Times of India, the media organisation cited an incomplete Twitter conversation between filmmaker Anurag Kashyap and a Twitter user to portray how the filmmaker had allegedly ‘slammed’ the Twitter user for accusing him of being a hypocrite.

Responding to this spurious report, the Twitter user who goes by the handle @divya_16_ called out Times of India’s dishonesty with its readers by not showing the entire conversation to them and allowing them to form their own opinion on it. Hinting that TOI is shielding Anurag Kashyap, Divya further insinuated that the Times of India must have started offering PR services to Bollywood on Twitter because of their failed business model.

Earlier today, Film producer Anurag Kashyap, who has often been a severe critic of PM Modi and the BJP had tweeted that fake videos and rumours have created a riot-like situation in Uttar Pradesh’s Aligarh. Kashyap meant that the general outpouring of emotions of people in Aligarh murder case has devolved the situation into anarchy there. However, outing his hypocrisy Divya reminded him of how he had once tagged PM Modi on Twitter for the threats his daughter received on Instagram but cannot brook the anger of common men on streets.

Anurag retorted back saying that murder is a heinous crime and the perpetrators responsible for this have been arrested. He further added that the rumours of rape, dismembering of body and eyes gouged out didn’t happen and the talks regarding this were inciting riot-like situation in the country.

Divya shot back replying how Anurag has not even bothered to read about the child’s post-mortem report. The report clearly states that the victim’s eyes were gouged out and her arm amputated.

Divya further prodded what Anurag meant when he said ‘riot-like’ situation. These tweets were conveniently left out by Times of India to give a selective picture of the conversation.

So far, no acts of violence or vandalism have been reported from Aligarh, where a 2.5-year-old girl was brutally murdered by Zahid, Aslam and other 2 perpetrators over a dispute on a paltry sum of Rs 10000 with the victim’s family.

However, when responded back with facts and protruding questions to prove his claims, Anurag Kashyap chose to ignore the assertions made by Divya and didn’t bother to respond back. Clearly, the entire Twitter conversation between Anurag Kashyap and Twitter user Divya is axiomatic of who was slammed by whom.
