An eminent Facebook page called “Humans of Hindutva” that takes dig on Hindutva in a sarcastic way has taken down after death menace to an anonymous creator.
Anonymous creator of page claimed that his personal information has revealed by some inflammatory elements and received many threats to his family and deleted the page.
That rapidly growing page has over the one lakh likes, popped an error message while searching by the Facebook users. Creator of the page wrote anonymously on a website ‘satyanash’ that he was quitting of his own accord, and not because he was banned or mass reported. “I am outnumbered, live in a BJP state and come from a middle-class family with no political or police connections,” he wrote. “I have no desire to end up like Gauri Lankesh or Afrazul Khan.”
Page had created in April and its post was inspired by “Humans of New York”. Since then it’s regularly attempts to divulge on casteism, surveillance, moral policing, attacks by the so called gau rakshaks.
Here is the full text of his post on Satyanash:
I’m quitting out of my own accord. I’ve not been banned or mass reported. I have recently received some threats to my life which I can’t take lightly. I am outnumbered, live in a BJP state and come from a middle-class family with no political or police connections. I have no desire to end up like Gauri Lankesh or Afrazul Khan. Actually, more than myself I worry for the safety of my family. I hope those who threatened me consider this as a victory and leave us alone. I have deleted the HOH page and will delete this website soon. Congratulations to Hindutva on winning this David vs. Goliath fight. As for those who were kind enough to lend me their ears for the last eight months, I’d like to wish you all a Happy New Year. Cheers and alvida. Thanks for giving me some of your time.
DailyO editor Jairaj singh cleared all the suspense by a tweet:
Had a brief chat with my friend who runs the Humans of Hindutva page. He told me that trolls have got a hold of his phone number and they're sending him death threats. He's scared for his wife and children, so he's shut the page for now. The nation can't take a joke.
