Apart from being the best medium to voice one’s opinion, social media has also become the most dynamic arena in the present day world. General public, who once lacked the medium to interact with powerful people now have the power to even raise their voice against them, all thanks to social media. But from the recent trend, it looks like that this medium of interaction of society has turned more of a bane for the powerful people, rather than being helpful.
On a number of occasions, famous people, such as politicians, actors and sportspersons end up getting trolled by the social media users. This is exactly what happened recently with Madhya Pradesh politician and Congress leader Jyotiraditya Scindia.
Recently, a Twitter user conducted a poll asking who helped the British government in killing Rani Laxmibai, the queen of Jhansi in pre-independent India. This user’s Twitter page goes by the name “Bhaiyyaji” which implies that he maintains anonymity on the social media platform. Here is the poll that he tweeted:

Actually, according to some reports from the history of pre-independent India, the Scindias had betrayed Rani Laxmibai and helped the British government to defeat her. Rani Laxmibai, during his fight for the independence of India, asked Jayajirao Scindia to support her against the British. Jayajirao Scindia agreed to help Rani Laxmibai and asked her to come to Gwalior. But when she reached the Scindia fort in Gwalior, they betrayed her by refusing to open doors of their fort for her.
Well aware of what Scindias had done to Rani Laxmibai, Twitterati seemed to be in no mood of forgetting the history and blasted at Jyotiraditya Scindia, the great-great-grandson of Jayajirao Scindia who had betrayed Rani Laxmibai. Take a look at how Twitter insulted Jyotiraditya Scindia:
Whole Scindia family was the informer of Britishers. They don’t have anything to do with the country. They had a legacy of betraying the nation and this is what they are doing till today.

रोमिला थापर जी ने उनकी किताब ‘भारतियों का पहला राजद्रोह 1857’ में लिखा है कि झांसी की रानी जो कि गद्दार थी, का वध करने में प्रजापालक ब्रितानी साम्राज्य की सहायता ग्वालियर महाराज श्री सिंधिया जी ने करके इस देश पर महान उपकार किया था।

रानी लक्ष्मीबाई को धोखा देने वालों को स्वतंत्र भारत में देशद्रोही करार किया जाना चाहिए था परन्तु इस देश की विडंबना ही है कि उनके वंशज आज भी झूठ की बुनियाद पर राज-परिवार के सुख उठा रहे हैं। #ItHappensOnlyInIndia

@JM_Scindia उसी गद्दार नस्ल की फसल है। चाटना इनका खान्दानी पेशा है। तब अंग्रेजोँ की चाटते थे अब गांधियोँ की चाटते हैँ।
