Rangoli Chandel, sister and manager of film star Kangana Ranaut, has hit back at the social media platform Twitter after being blocked for posting violent messages.
Chandel was blocked earlier in the day for posting an inflammatory statement that called for 'violence' against members of a community and the 'secular' media. The tweet, no longer available, read, "F**k the history. They may call us Nazis. Who cares? Life is more important than fake image."
The tweet brought stinging criticism for Chandel and, eventually, Twitter Inc decided to suspend her account as per its policy dealing with violent and hate speech.
Reacting to the move, Chandel was quoted by the Mid-Day newspaper as saying, "Twitter is an American platform absolutely biased and anti-India. You can make fun of Hindu gods, call the prime minister and home minister terrorists, but if you say anything about people pelting stones on health workers and police forces they suspend your account.
"I have no desire of empowering such platforms with my perspective and honest opinions, so I am not reviving my account," she continued. "I was my sister's spokesperson. Now watch out for her direct interviews. She is a huge star and she has many ways of reaching out. A biased platform can be easily avoided."
