Topics/Events that triggered Hinduphobic Tweets
Hinduphobic tweets this month have revolved around a number of issues: the Nupur Sharma episode and the Udaipur killings; attacks on Nambi Narayanan and actor Madhavan for having portrayed Hindu characters in the movie “Rocketry”; attacks on the judiciary/Supreme Court over their handling of Mohammed Zubair’s arrest; the usual abuse of Hindus as cow worshipers and piss drinkers; and in a few cases justifying the beheading of the Hindu tailor in Udaipur and extending dire physical threats of similar nature. The caste-based abuse of Hindus and attacks on Brahmins were also a major part of the toxic discourse on Twitter in July 2022.
