Rashmi Gautam Holi comment invites trouble

Noted television presenter and actress Rashmi Gautam who is quite active on social media and vocal about various social issues has landed in trouble with her latest tweet on Holi. The actress on the eve of Holi cautioned her Twitter followers to pay safe Holi keeping the animals safe.  “Let’s be a little thoughtful about them #SafeHoli #HappyHoli2019,” she tweeted.

However, her tweet was soon communalised by right-wing activists stating that why she only schools during Hindu festivals and not others like Bakrid, celebrated by the Muslims. “Do u comment same during Eid When dozens of animals r slaughtered for no good reason Or u care for animals during Holi and Diwali Pls just asking rest is ur wish.” In reply, Rashmi Gautam‏ wrote, “Emotions are the same at that given point too But who can question religion???” wrote a user.

While there were many who condemned Rashmi but she also found support from some fans. Check out the Twitter responses and Rashmi’s reply.
