How Anti-Modi Brigade Forced ‘Bhak Sala’ To Go Into Temporary Exile

Updated on 6 February, 2017 at 10:54 pm By

Yesterday evening, Trinamool Congress Member of Parliament to the Rajya Sabha Derek O’Brien accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of following 26 Twitter accounts who “give out rape threats, communal threats”.



TMC MP Derek O’Brien levelled very serious criminal accusations against two Twitter users without providing evidences in the Parliament.

Speaking in the upper house of the Indian Parliament, he read out at least two names from a list whom, he claimed, were “suspended by Twitter”.

Moments later, one of those handles – @MahaveerM_– operated by Mahaveer Mehta responded:

And seconds later came response of the other – Rahul Raj, popularly known across the Internet as Bhak Sala:

Raj also replies to senior journalist Swapan Dasgupta’s point on the accusation:

O’Brien’s claim that the two handles were suspended by Twitter were refuted by both. Given that both the handles are followed by some of the most famous names of the country lends some sort of authority to the handles and their operators.


Rahul Raj of Bhak Sala fame.

Yet on February 3, Rahul Raj announced to his 88.7K followers that he was taking a break from social media because his mother is worried about him.

He writes:

Today, I got a call from my mother. She does not know much about internet and she had no idea about what I was doing. But after knowing that my name was taken in the parliament and I was branded a criminal by an MP, she was deeply worried. She couldn’t sleep yesterday.

She asked me if this will impact my safety. Here, an MP had accused me of issuing death and rape threats.

I told her not to worry and that people were with me…I have seen the dirty side of court cases.

I feel weak today. Thanks for your enormous support. It has strengthened me during such time. I am taking a break from social media, but I will be back.

He also explained in the post that he was once a staunch supporter of the AAP and a critic of BJP. But he points out how dirty the political atmosphere has become after the Modi government came to power – not because of Modi but because of the rabid hate being spread by anti-Modi forces.

Before he left, Raj claimed that the Congress and the AAP were targeting him:

And he also slammed Anurag Kashyap retweeting a comment without verifying facts:

Kashyap was previously criticised for his uncharacteristic comments on Hindus during the ‘Padmavati’ row. While condemning Karni Sena’s obviously shameful actions, Kashyap had bracketed all Hindus as “extremists”.

But Raj was not without supporters. While hundreds expressed their solidarity with him on social media, BJP MP Smriti Irani took his side in the parliament today:


Now for some facts, but for that you’ll have to see the video again and jump to 1.47 in the video:

That is the part which reveals the frustration of the TMC leader.

His party and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee are being slammed on social media for neglecting the rising cases of Islamic radicalism in the state. The very recent controversy happened on the eve of Saraswati Puja. A group of school students were prevented from holding the puja in the school premises because of an alleged fear of Islamists. Protesters were allegedly lathi-charged. Some students were injured.

The same place and the same school was previously targeted by Islamic radicals during Milad ul-Nabi last year.

That the TMC and all the anti-Modi forces are trying to silence voices who point out their flaws can be understood from this tweet by Swapan Dasgupta:


The truth is that in the quest for “political correctness”, the so-called liberals in the media and the governments are gagging the voices who are trying to highlight Islamic radicalism.
