Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap quits Twitter, claims he was not allowed to speak his mind without fear

"Thugs will rule and thuggery will be the new way of life," he said while congratulating everyone on the 'new India', taking a jibe at Prime Minister Modi's campaign for New India.

Two days ahead of release of second season of Sacred Games on Netflix, filmmaker Anurag Kashyap has quit Twitter by deactivating his Twitter account. Before leaving, he took to the micro-blogging site to inform everyone that he is leaving the platform.

He claimed that his parents were starting to get calls and his daughter was getting online threats. “no one wants you to talk,” he tweeted. “Thugs will rule and thuggery will be the new way of life,” he said while congratulating everyone on the ‘new India’, taking a jibe at Prime Minister Modi’s campaign for New India. He added that he would rather not speak his mind if he is not allowed to speak without fear.

The Gangs of Wasseypur director, who had earlier defended Tarun Tejpal in rape case, also identifies himself as an ‘achiever’ and recently wrote to PM Modi on ‘rising intolerance‘. He, along with other ‘achievers’ were called out for their selective outrage and hypocrisy. Kashyap himself had resorted to spread misinformation regarding the murder of the three-year-old in Aligarh recently. Kashyap, who is reluctant to accept the communal nature of the incident as it destructs their ‘Dara Hua Musalman’ narrative went on to proclaim that there was no rape or any other sort of brutality against the child and accused people of creating an atmosphere of riots using the incident.

He had once also revealed a mobile number of a journalist on Twitter, following which she got harassed by trolls. He is also quick to label people he disagrees with on social media as ‘radicals’. The second season of Netflix series ‘Sacred Games’ directed by Kashyap, will be released on 15th August.
