Anurag Kashyap has finally filed an FIR against a social media user who threatened his daughter with rape due to the criticism the filmmaker showered on Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
The troll, whose Instagram handle captioned him as ‘chowkidar’ before his name, sent a vitriol-filled message to Anurag’s daughter along with abusive words for the director, too.
Tagging Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s official Twitter handle, Kashyap wrote, “Dear @narendramodi sir. Congratulations on your victory and thank you for the message of inclusiveness. Sir please also tell us how do we deal with these followers of yours who celebrate your victory by threatening my daughter with messages like this for me being your dissenter.”
Kashyap also shared the screenshot of this offensive post.
Kashyap lodging the complaint against this troll also thanked the Mumbai Police and its cyber cell and the author Brijesh Singh for helping him get through the formalities of filing of the FIR.
Thanking the Mumbai police, he Anurag Kashyap said, “Anyways I want to thank @MumbaiPolice @MahaCyber1 @Brijeshbsingh for helping me with filing the FIR . Thank you so much for the amazing support and starting the process .Thank you @Dev_Fadnavis and thank you @narendramodi Sir. As a father I am more secure now.”
Adding to the statements following such an inductive troll, Anurag Kashyap called such people double standards, who are actually criticising him for tagging PM Modi in the tweet raising such a concern.
Captioning his words in this regard, Anurag wrote, “The irony with social media is when I say vote for your constituent so one can take their problems to them, they say Vote for the PM. When you tag PM to the tweet they say it’s not his responsibility go to the constituent (sic).”
Kashyap’s initial tweet over such trolls led to a war of words with Ashoke Pandit, who claimed on mentioning that these screenshots were photo shopped, done by any “urban naxal”.
