After Ugly Twitter Spat Over Article 370, Payal Rohatgi, Gauahar Khan Block Each Other
Payal Rohtagi's tweet regarding Article 370, which gives the state of Jammu and Kashmir the status of an autonomous state, has drawn a sharp response from actress Gauahar Khan.

Television actress Payal Rohatgi and Gauahar Khan got into an ugly Twitter spat over the formers tweets regarding Article 370, which gives Jammu and Kashmir the status of an autonomous state. Their spat escalated quickly with Payal accusing Gauahar of playing the victim card to win Bigg Boss. She also commented on Muslim women wearing 'hijabs'. After a series of tweets, Gauahar blocked Payal on Twitter.

The war words between the two actresses began with Payal's tweet that read, "If Article 370 can't be removed then ask Kashmiri Muslims to evict Kashmir. Centre should make it Defence area. Kashmiris start living in other cities of India. Kashmir will always be a part of India whether it has Kashmiris in it or no. You guys threw Pandits out, now evict Muslims."

To this, Gauahar replied, saying: "Haha so says a person who is living happily in a building that is 90 per cent Muslims! In an area that has harmony amongst the Koli, Christian and Muslim population who live there. I am proud that at least the Muslims in your building tolerate a bigoted person like you."

In another tweet, Gauahar said that spreading hatred was easy and that India is beautiful because of its diversity.

The war of words continued between the two actresses for a while with Payal making remarks on Muslim women wearing "hijabs".

Calling the "hijab" a statement of dignity, Gauahar replied: "People like you look down upon a woman wearing her hijab to work out! That's what real feminists are! They build each other up! Not like people who choose to be nice to men and women depending on their faith! I don't need to run you down, the people of this world are clever."

Continuing the online spat, Payal wrote: "This is not Kashmir and definitely not 1990 where in the name of forced conversion... you can kill Hindus. Give your communal crap to your Gushal fans Fool."

Finally, after a series of exchanges, Gauahar blocked Payal on Twitter.

Payal then called their spat a publicity stunt.

Next, she tagged the Mumbai Police in a tweet and wrote: "After all tagging my tweet to get publicity for herself in her non-existent film career, this reality show feminist blocks me. Mumbai Police, I am bringing into your attention that this woman has tried to call for my lynching because I gave a suggestion on curbing terrorism in Jammu and Kashmir."
