Actress Neha Dhupia Faces Sexist Attacks On Twitter For Anti-Modi Tweet

Rains wreaking havoc in Mumbai is nothing new to Mumbaikars. And July 21st, the peak of the monsoon season wasn’t an exception either. Heavy rains lashed the financial capital of the country, making it impossible for people to even venture out of their homes. The rains also caused widespread flooding and destruction of property to boot.

It’s not as if the government was caught unawares. Monsoons are an annual occurrence, and they could do something to brace themselves when it hits. Oh no – that almost never happens in our country. But if you so much utter a peep about the bad governance and the sad state of infrastructure, lo and behold – people from every nook and cranny of the country come out in defense of, none other than, NaMo.

And as a resident of the city, Bollywood actress Neha Dhupia, took to Twitter to express her frustrations and grievances about the government’s inept handling of the floods. She tweeted warning Mumbaikars of staying inside the safety of their homes, and to venture out only if absolutely necessary:

Followed by this tweet:    

BAM – came the scathing remarks about her character, her work, and some low-lives even went as far as to call her a publicity-hungry actress, who would dare to criticize the ‘great’ Narendra Modi, our ‘esteemed’ Prime Minister, of bad governance, for a mere 15 seconds of fame.

The actress was soon trending on Twitter, with caustic responses to her tweets against Narendra Modi. Many of her detractors were enraged that she had the audacity to criticize the PM, who, may I remind everyone, is a public servant:



And things quickly turned sexist, with some calling her a ‘slut,’ ‘prostitute,’ and whatnot.    



All was not lost, however. There were some who came to the rescue of the actress, who has been silent since the Twitter started trolling her.    


Really, they should be ashamed of themselves for their misogynistic responses against a woman, who is an actress by profession. Her profession is different and her wish for good governance is different, and her character and personal life are different. How can they attack her so viciously? She made a valid point on the government’s clumsy handling of the monsoons in a city as vast and as populated as Mumbai. What wrong did she do? Pray enlighten me, you misogynistic, repressive, right-wing b*ttheads?
