NPR producer Furkan Khan ‘resigns’ after tweets expose her Hinduphobia

Last evening, Khan took to Twitter to assert that if Indians give up Hinduism, they will be solving most of their problems ‘what with all the piss drinking and dung worshipping’. After the outrage against her Hinduphobia, Furkan proceeded to delete her original tweet where she wanted Indians to give up Hinduism and gave a shoddy explanation for it.

NPR producer Furkan Khan, who uses the language used by Pulwama terrorist against Hindus, has ‘resigned’ from NPR. Following her disturbing tweets, one of which she eventually deleted, concerned social media users had written to NPR asking whether the media house endorses such behaviour. In response, NPR replied to them stating that she has resigned from NPR.

The email, sent by Isabel from NPR reads, “NPR regrets the unacceptable tweet by New Delhi producer Furkan Khan. This comment does not reflect the views of NPR journalists and is a violation of our ethical standards. She has publicly apologized for her tweet and has resigned from NPR.”

Now deleted tweet by Furhan Khan

Calling Hindus ‘cow piss drinkers’ or ‘dung worshippers’ is a common insult used by Islamists to deride Hinduism. In the video released by the Jaish-e-Muhammad terror outfit following the attack on the CRPF convoy that killed 40 CRPF personnel, expressing his unmitigated hatred for Hindus, Dar had justified their killings by calling them ‘infidels’ and ‘cow piss drinkers‘.

After the outrage against her Hinduphobia, Furkan proceeded to delete her original tweet where she wanted Indians to give up Hinduism and gave a shoddy explanation for it.

When caught on the wrong foot, Furkan first defended herself by chalking up her tweet to ‘sarcasm’ and also said that ‘trolls’ were missing the context. One does wonder what ‘context’ could justify her continued Hinduphobia and her speaking the language of terrorists.
