Reacting to recent video footages that show anti-romeo squads in Uttar Pradesh harassing seemingly innocent people and doling out harsh treatment, prominent lawyer-activist Prashant Bhushan uploaded a post on social media that described Lord Krishna as a ‘legendary eve teaser’. The video footages show people being forced to squat and some even had their heads tonsured. Bhushan’s twitter post read, “Romeo loved just one lady, while Krishna was a legendary Eve teaser. Would Adityanath have the guts to call his vigilantes Anti-Krishna squads?”
The tweet has created a storm on social media and several religious groups have condemned the act and are demanding an apology from Bhushan. BJP Delhi spokesperson Tajinder Bagga was also hugely critical of Bhushan’s tweet and said that he has filed a police complaint against Bhushan for ‘insulting and outraging the religious sentiments of Hindus’. Meanwhile, Bhushan maintains that he did not intend to hurt people’s sentiments. He said that he was just trying to point out the negative aspects of the anti-romeo drive in Uttar Pradesh.
