"Sanskari" Alok Nath Tweeted Something Inappropriate And People Are Losing Their Shit Over It

"Babuji zara dheere chalo."

Posted on

On Sunday, the hashtag #SelfieWithDaughter was trending across India after Prime Minister Narendra Modi tweeted about it.

I urge all of you, share a #SelfieWithDaughter. Also share a tagline that will encourage 'Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao' : PM @narendramodi

The hashtag was met with largely positive vibes, with Indians across the world contributing to it.

2 daughters. 2 selfies. Thank you God! #SelfieWithDaughter

There were still some voices of disapproval, though, most notably from women's rights activist Kavita Krishnan.

She appeared to be referring to the 2013 scandal in which Narendra Modi and his close aide Amit Shah were accused of misusing their power to spy on a woman.

It didn't take long for a barrage of reactions to pour in.

Alok Nath doesn't know what sanskaar is anymore 😂😂😂😂😂

There were both supporters and haters of the tweet.

Alok Nath likes Modi.Kavita Krishnan doesn't.So he decides that sexist hate speech is a reasonable response. #sanskar

Rather than criticising Kavita Krishnan for her outrageous statement and mentality, people have trained their guns on Alok Nath. 1/2

Be it anonymous twitter accounts or some famous verified handles, one thing is common - Abusing ladies who disagree https://t.co/qTmvVSgWaB

He just said what a LOT of people wanted to say after seeing THAT tweet of hers. https://t.co/9Usb2U19xq

Who would have thought the on-screen graceful @aloknath would be a rabid right-wing misogynist bigot. Thank you twitter.

I for one am shocked, shocked that Alok Nath, being a middle aged Indian 'sanskari uncle', has little respect for women and dissent.

I will not stand for AlokNath's one tweet but I will never stand for Kavita's regular abusive behavior .. Infact she needs to be condemned !

Nath's tweet was deleted soon after, but not soon enough for the internet.

Aloknath asking himself this question before deleting his tweet!

so that alok nath is an *insanely* good actor huh
