MUMBAI: Indian singer quit Twitter on Wednesday in support of Amitabh Bhattacharya and Paresh Rawal.

According to an Indian news website, Sonu Nigam cited the suspension of singer Amitabh Bhattacharya and the hatred towards Paresh Rawal as reasons for quitting the micro-blogging website.

Nigam stated that he was deleting his Twitter account as the social media website was biased and everyone was angry over him.

It should be noted that he had nearly 7 million followers on his profile.

The micro-blogging site Twitter suspended singer Abhijeet Bhattacharya’s account after he posted a string of ‘offensive’ tweets, especially against women.

The move by the micro-blogging site came after social media users accused the 58-year-old singer of using ‘inappropriate’ and ‘insulting’ language.

The singer had received flak on the social media site for a series of inflammatory tweets against journalist Swati Chaturvedi, who had registered a police complaint against him last year in July.

The complaint led to his arrest. On being released on bail, the singer reportedly broke into tears.

The regret didn’t last long, for the defiant singer later said he would repeat his words if he wished to.

On May 22, Abhijeet spewed venom at some women Twitter users, including JNU student-activist Shehla Rashid, which prompted some of the netizens to lodge a complaint with Twitter.

“Sincere thanks to everyone for the support. Abhijeet had to delete his tweet. His Twitter account has also been suspended,” Shehla tweeted.

Paresh Rawal, on the other hand, was also criticized heavily by social media users on his remark against author Arundhati Roy. Rawal had stated that the Indian writer should be tied infront of an Indian army jeep.

Roy is highly vocal against Indian Army and their atrocities in occupied Kashmir.
