New Delhi: Sushma Swaraj’s husband took to Twitter on Sunday to give an emotional response to a troll who suggested physical violence against the external affairs minister over the grant of passport to an inter-faith couple last month.

On Sunday, former Mizoram governor Swaraj Kaushal posted on the microblogging site:

The minister has been attacked by trolls on Twitter since the transfer of a Passport Seva Kendra official in Lucknow over allegedly insulting a Hindu-Muslim couple. According to the couple, Vikas Mishra asked the husband to convert to Hinduism and pulled up the wife for marrying a Muslim.

A section of social media had targeted Swaraj and her ministry for taking action against Mishra, claiming that he was just doing his duty.

The minister had taken it on the chin and retweeted some of the tweets that were even abusive and communal in nature. She also posted a poll asking Twitterati if they approved of such posts.

Several political leaders have come out in support of the minister, with J&K Chief Minister on Sunday saying she was “horrified” by the vicious trolling.
