“Co-convenor #Bajrangdal Bantwal, Ex-Prisoner, Campaigner @SowjanyaJustice, [needs translation], Photographer @BhuviClicks. I believe Music = @kschithra,Cricket = Srilanka”
Then it was UR Anantamoorty and now it is MM Kalburgi. Mock Hinduism and die a dogs #death. And dear KS bhagwan you are next.The Twitter account is now inaccessible. It is unclear whether Bhuvith Shetty deleted his tweets and account or whether Twitter suspended it for issuing threat. Mangalore #police has been intimated#communal crimes in recent years.
Others on Twitter have reported that he has earlier boasted about crimes as well earlier in July when he boasted about chopping off the hand of a Muslim for smuggling cows.#Narendra Dabholkar and Govind Pansare, rationalists from #Maharashtra had been shot dead in cold blood after receiving threats from Hindutva organizations. The investigations for the #murder have been stagnant with allegations of cover up and a lack of interest in punishing the murders. Supporters of the ruling #BJP appear to have come to the defense of Bhuvith saying that he does not mean it and was just tweeting. It is a strange “just tweeting” to engage in, but given that the “young”, “ignorant”, “over-enthusiastic” person is also a role holder in a notoriously violent organization routinely implicated in communal crimes in the region, the excuses appear to be absurd. As absurd as the idea that a co-convenor’s tweets on the murders of people his organization has issued threats to in the past, someone who proudly adds “ex-prisoner” to his profile should be considered an idle teenager. Apparently co-convenors in bajrangdal are snotty teenagers while the mobs thrashing people, chopping off hands or murdering, rioting follow said snotty teenagers. This post will be updated as more information is known.
