Mumbai is becoming the new favorite hub of the “Azadi gang” and miscreants making derogatory graffiti across the city. Devang Dave, National Convener BJYM, has shared two tweets in which he mentioned the “Azadi” graffiti that has emerged in the city. In the second tweet, he shared images of derogatory graffiti targeting actress Kangana Ranaut, BJP Spokesperson Sambit Patra, Republic TV editor-in-chief Arnab Goswami and ZEE News editor-in-chief Sudhir Choudhary.
He also shared image of a wall where ‘Azadi’ was painted across in black letters.

The person behind the graffiti
The person behind both the Azadi slogan and the derogatory graffiti is an Instagram user who goes by the handle “tylerstreetart”. His whole Instagram account is filled with morphed images, inflammatory graffiti, and anti-BJP rants.
In one image, he has morphed PM Modi’s picture as if he is showing the middle finger. This image is ‘liked’ by Bollywood entertainer Swara Bhaskar amongst others.
Another image stitches image of PM Modi with German dictator Adolf Hitler.
In yet another image, he has painted a d*ck in Mahatma Gandhi’s hand.
This image is also ‘liked’ by Swara Bhaskar.
