Prashant Bhushan slammed for spreading anti-mask study, brazens it out after netizens object

At a time when doctors and healthcare experts are advising people to mask up due to the second wave of the Coronavirus pandemic, Bhushan has resorted to peddling conspiracy theories against the usage of masks.

‘Eminent intellectual’ and PIL activist Prashant Bhushan appears to have found new meaning to his existence after suffering several setbacks in his legal pursuits. Soon after the Courts refused to deliverable a favourable verdict in his Rohingya petition, Prashant Bhushan has jumped onto the anti-mask bandwagon.

His conspiracy mongering attracted criticism across the board. Dr Amit Thadlani, unamused by Bhushan’s dangerous rhetoric, asked him if he was aware what a hypothesis meant. A hypothesis is a proposition that is the subject of a study or experiment which has not yet been found to be true.

Others agreed with Dr Thadlani’s ‘nutcase’ assessment.

Others slammed him for his tweet as well.

People from across the political spectrum are condemning him for the tweet.

After he was called out for his tweet, Prashant Bhushan decided to brazen it out instead of apologising for the same.

Earlier in February, the PIL activist had claimed that Covid-19 was dying naturally in the country and wanted the government to refrain from investing in vaccines.
