Sushma Swaraj Fires Back at Twitter Troll with a Powerful Lesson in Religious Harmony

Sushma Swaraj Fires Back at Twitter Troll with a Powerful Lesson in Religious Harmony


It is no secret that Sushma Swaraj, the current minister of External Affairs, is not only active on social media but also uses it to provide assistance to those who seek her help.

While she uses her platform to primarily reach out to those in need, most recently she took to Twitter to fire back at a troll who had insinuated that Swaraj only aided Muslims who seek visas and harassed Hindus.

Instead of ignoring it, Swaraj took the opportunity to not only respond to the troll but also schooled the account user on how all Indians ought to be the same in front of the nation’s leaders and by default, everyone else as well.

She noted that as long as a person is Indian, their religion, caste, or state did not matter to her.

Her tweet was instantly appreciated with Indians across the board lauded her for posting a message that was inclusive.

Turns out it was a busy day for the minister online, because not only did she take time to hit back at Twitter trolls, Swaraj also responded to a petition asking to help a septuagenarian couple in Andhra Pradesh obtain visas for their disabled daughter.
