We live in a world and time where social media has become the most powerful way to express ourselves. Moreover, every social media user, whether a celebrity, a politician or a commoner, has equal power and right to express themselves on this platform. But these merits of social media have turned into demerits for a lot of users, particularly public figures who are trolled every now and then, and a number of times for wrong reasons.

This recently happened with Bollywood actress Richa Chadha when she raised her voice in the rape case against former union minister Swami Chinmayananda. The actress had shared a news clip from a newspaper which mentioned that Yogi Adityanath government has decided to withdraw rape case against Swami Chinmayananda.

For the uninitiated, a FIR against Swami was lodged in November 2011, on complaint of a girl who had lived in his ashram for several years. She alleged that she was kept in an ashram in Haridwar and raped by the former minister. While Adityanath government has withdrawn the case, the victim has written to the President, the Chief Justice of India, the UP Governor, the Chief minister and the district judge expressing her objection over the move.



Actress Richa Chadha too raised her voice for justice for the victim with a satirical remark on the government. Here is what she had tweeted:
