After a video of frenetic mob attacking a Hindu temple in Pakistan went viral on social media, a Twitter user asked actresses Richa Chadha and Swara Bhasker to comment on the same.
"Ganesh temple was vandalized in Bhong city of Punjab, Pakistan. @RahulGandhi @priyankagandhi @INCIndia @ReallySwara @RichaChadha Any feedback on this?" read the tweet.
Responding to the same, Richa wrote: "Why ask us, we have contracted them? They are fools, but there is action against those who commit religious disturbances. Look at your country, till when will you celebrate the destruction of your neighbor?"
Slamming the user, Chadha added, "You see yourself, there is no mention of rape, murder or #VandanaKatariya of a Dalit girl on your TL! Why?"
Swara didn't react to the tweet, however, re-tweeted Richa's post.
According to reports, a mob attacked a Hindu temple in a remote town in Pakistan's Punjab province, damaging idols and burning down parts of it, in reaction to an alleged desecration of a Muslim seminary by a minor Hindu boy. The eight-year-old Hindu boy last week had allegedly urinated at a library of the seminary that caused tensions in Bhong, where Muslims and Hindus have been living peacefully for decades. The boy was REPORTEDLY arrested last week and booked under the blasphemy laws but subsequently released on bail for being a minor.
The viral videos showed the mob destroying the infrastructure of the temple and vandalising the idols.
