Hyderabad: Instagram content creators remove Hinduphobic videos after outrage, had said God Shiva castrated himself

BJP MLA Tiger Raja Singh also intervened on the matter and said that the individuals, Kruthika Gowra and Chitin, are both residents of Hyderabad.

A video had gone viral on social media late on Sunday where two Instagram content creators could be seen making extremely derogatory comments on God Shiva. The video was posted on the Youel.in Instagram account. The two individuals speak of Mahadeva castrating himself and made other such offensive remarks before going on to say that people should not get offended.

However, people did get offended due to the nature of the comments made. People demanded authorities to take action over the matter.

BJP MLA Tiger Raja Singh also intervened on the matter and said that the individuals, Kruthika Gowra and Chitin, are both residents of Hyderabad.

Since then, the Instagram content creators have issued an apology over the matter. In an Instagram Story, they said, “A three-part video posted since April in installments titled “Hinduism & Humans” suddenly provoked a lot of adverse reactions in the last 24 hours. This was despite our repeated disclaimer that our video was not made with the intention to offend anyone.”

The content creators further added in a separate story, “We have therefore decided to take down the entire three-part video permanently. We sincerely apologise to anyone we have unintentionally offended with the video. We request you to accept our apology and tag all the concerned parties.”

It remains to be seen whether the apology settles the matter or law enforcement authorities decide to take action against them for hurting the religious sentiments of Hindus, especially since a sitting MLA has asked the authorities to take action.
