Fadnavis' Wife Hits Back After Being Trolled For 'Spreading Christianity'

Dec 13, 2017 10:33 AM IST Buzz Buzz

Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis’ wife Amruta Fadnavis became a target of Internet trolls on Tuesday after she shared a photograph from an event that she attended recently in Mumbai.

Promoting a Christmas-themed charitable event organised by an FM radio channel in Mumbai, Amruta shared a few photographs on microblogging site Twitter.

"launched-Be Santa-campaign, as Ambassador for @927BIGFM - to collect gifts from people -for poor children ,to bring smiles to their faces during this Christmas.Drop ur gifts at nearest @927BIGFM & Feel the joy -as best way to multiply your happiness is by sharing it with others🎅," she wrote.

The no-chill troll brigade surfaced as soon as Amruta posted her tweet. The chief minister and his wife came under heavy criticism for promoting a charity linked to Christmas. "Where were you on Diwali Ganesh Puja or when Chennai & Mumbai were flooded "Santa" feeling are exclusive to "Christmas"? this is an abuse of your position and status," tweeted one user.

When the things went out of control, Amruta stood her ground and issued a clarification on the platform.

"Love , sharing & empathy have no religion - let’s accept all positivity around us & stay away from negative thoughts & demotivating energies ! @ShefVaidya," she wrote.

"I’m a proud Hindu & like many, I celebrate every festival in my country & that is an individual choice.... We represent the true spirit of our country ... and that doesn’t dilute our love towards our country , religion & humanity ....," she concluded.
