BJP leader Nupur Sharma sparks outrage, shares fake news on Bengal riots

BJP leader Nupur Sharma sparks outrage, shares fake news on Bengal riots”

Known for his rabble-rousing speeches to whip up passion among the Hindus, this gentleman stoked yet another controversy by posting on his twitter account, calling upon the Hindus of West Bengal to repeat the Gujarat riots of 2002 to teach a lesson to the "communal elements" (read Muslims).

Images depicting violence and a auto set on fire were used on banners, placards and social media before the "Save Bengal" rally was staged at Delhi's Jantar Mantar on Saturday and as the image went viral, it was discovered that the image was actually from 2002 during riots in Gujarat.

The twiterrati, however, pointed out to her that the image was from 2002 and accused her of spreading a rumour.

He went on say Hindus in Bengal will be converted in a state like Bangladesh by making Hindus run away, the way it happened it Kashmir. I want to appeal to those who are secular that if you want Bengal's Hindus to be safe and secure then you have to be more aware. "This has woken up the people in Lutyen's Delhi who have maintained a stoic silence on Bengal till now", added the leader. However, the MLA said the statement he had posted on twitter was his personal and not that of the party.

In the video, which Singh has shared on Twitter, he says, "Hindus of Bengal should give a befitting reply, just like the Hindus of Gujarat had earlier done in 2002". "Can't trust any BJP handle these days".

"We will conduct a judicial probe into the Baduria-Basirhat incident to take impartial action as per law".

But, Sharma begged to differ on the subject.
