Content head Tanzila Anis celebrates the killing of Rinku Sharma, mocks Lord Shiva Ling

In a horrific incident, a Bajrang Dal activist named Rinku Sharma was brutally stabbed to death by a Muslim mob on the night of 10 February. Rinku Sharma, a lab technician who was murdered in a brutal and barbaric manner, which reminds us of the killing of IB officer Ankit Sharma during the Delhi riots.

Sharma’s family members claimed Rinku was killed in cold blood for raising ‘Jai Shri Ram’ slogans in Delhi and his mother alleged there were “30 to 40 people with lathi, sticks and knives”.

The 26-year-old deceased, who was stabbed in his house in front of his family members, was actively involved with the Hindu outfit and was a part of the donation drive being carried out by Bajrang Dal for contributing towards the construction of Ram Mandir in Ayodhya.

The police have reportedly arrested four of the five accused, identified as Nashruddin, Islam, Mehtab, Jahid and Tajuddin. The fifth person was taken into custody on Friday.

As the brutal killing of a Hindu youth in broad daylight evoked a strong response from citizens, a few Islamists and left-liberals were celebrating the 26-year-old Bajrang Dal activist’s death on social media platforms. Tanzila Anis, a content head at the online music streaming platform – Gaana, made a disgusting comment on social media following the brutal murder of Bajrang Dal activist Rinku Sharma.

Taking to Twitter, Tanzila Anis insinuated that the deceased person was a Bajrang Dal activist. “That’s it, that’s the tweet,” said Tanzila Anis. From her tweet, it appeared that she was indirectly implying that killing a Bajrang Dal activist is acceptable, who was stabbed for participating in a donation drive for the construction of Ram Mandir.

She received major backlash after her ‘anti-Hindu’ tweets began circulating on Twitter. Later, she offered an explanation for her conduct. She said that she did not even know that a Bajrang Dal activist had been murdered and her tweet only alluded to the fact that members of the “extremist” organisation Bajrang Dal cannot be called an “activist”.

She was trolled a lot for her tweet and social media users started demanding that Gaana should sack her from the company. OpIndia has reached out to the company for their comments on the issue, this report will be updated if and when the company responds to our queries.

Here are some of tweets posted by Tanzila Anis, which not only mocks Hindus but also abuse Hindu deities:

In 2012, Tanzila Anis, taking advantage of her ‘freedom of expression’, abused Hindu deities saying she had a thing for Shiva in the past, who was a “mythological dick”.

In another tweet put out by Tanzila Anis in 2015, she said one must outrage on why more men were chefs, more women were pornstars and importantly why more Hindus in India.

In one of the vile tweets unearthed by social media users, Tanzila Anis can be seen making sexist sly on Lord Sita and Lord Hanuman.

In a similar tweet, Tanzila Anis can also be seen mocking Ramayana.

Here is another tweet where she was caught abusing Hindu culture and scriptures.

In April 2013, she said that Lord Krishna indulged in ‘orgy’ with gopis (Lord Krishna’s women devotees). “This boy is mad”, she had tweeted.

Tanzila Anis, unsurprisingly, is also a great fan of Pakistan. Here are a few tweets where she was seen cheering for Pakistan, the country that bleeds India almost every day by exporting terror.

Even though the Hinduphobic attitude displayed by Tanzila Asin comes as no surprise to many, in reality, it is not a recent phenomenon. The Islamists and left-liberals have been making such vile and derogatory statements to target Hindus and its culture under the guise of ‘freedom of speech’ and ‘secularism’ and are easily getting away.

Unfortunately, it looks like the Hinduphobia in the ‘secular’ societies of the country is not going to stop any time soon.
