We are all aware of the assault on Sanjay Leela Bhansali which took place last week. There was no way that Bollywood fraternity would not voice their opinions against this unjustified act by the Karni Sena. Among the first few was Anurag Kashyap who used some really harsh words to criticize the attackers. He went a step forward and called these people “Hindu terrorists” which does not seem to have gone down well with the people. In reply twitter has opposed such comments and here we tell you how ..
Hindu extremists have stepped out of twitter into the real world now.. and Hindu terrorism is not a myth anymore

And remember kids, One slap= Hindu terror, but beheadings, mass shootings, car bombs, hijackings etc. have no religion! https://t.co/J3Zam3Ho4B

Anurag Kashyap’s tweet was : “Hindu extremists have stepped out of twitter into the real world now.. and Hindu terrorism is not a myth anymore.”
Anurag Kashyap finally accepts Terror does have a religion. He was lying all these years about ‘Islamic terror’ https://t.co/P2VIUv4r1P

Twitter has been buzzing with objections regarding Anurag calling the attackers Hindu terrorists whereas they were simply a small community. They have expressed their view that terrorism should not be labeled with any one religion. When intellectuals say that terrorism does not have a religion then how can calling the attackers Hindu terrorists be justified- twitter is buzzing with tweets.
Before this actors and directors from Bollywood had tweeted taking Bhansali’s side that the attackers should be punished. Among them Priyanka Chopra, Deepika Padukone, Farhan Akhtar, Hrithik Roshan and Yami Gautam all expressed their concern against the action.
This Jaipur incident has sparked discussions regarding artistic freedom in the country. Anurag Kashyap, who had earlier faced problems in his film Udta Punjab, was perhaps the most vociferous among the twitter users. So now it remains to be seen what Anurag will bring up in reply to this.

Attack on freedom of artistic expression is wrong,but because of some fringe elements u cannot label entire Hindu community as terrorists. https://t.co/FgUuiw8bpb

It’s good sir that Bollywood fakes distort history — you are rousing Indjans to understand what their history was. https://t.co/iLUANGqB82
