Actress Swara Bhasker, who has been vocal about various social issues in the past, invited bitter tweets from filmmaker Vivek Agnihotri after she posted a tweet about the Kerala nun abuse case.

It all started earlier this week when Swara tweeted to condemn Kerala MLA PC George for making objectionable remarks against a nun who has accused a bishop of sexually abusing her.

Tagging her tweet, Agnihotri posted a message referring to the #MeToo movement against sexual harassment and sexual assault. He posted: “Where is the placard #MeTooProstituteNun?”

The actress slammed Agnihotri for his “hateful and insensitive” tweet targeting her for speaking on the case. Swara took to Twitter and wrote, “Vivek, just want to point out that you are using the trauma of women who are rape survivors to slut shame and abuse in public a woman you don’t like. In the rare moments of sanity that may visit your brain — otherwise unhinged with hate- think about how low that is.”

Later, the Veere Di Wedding actress complained to Twitter authorities about the abusive post. Agnihotri had to delete it.

“I’m really glad Twitter India took action and locked his account and made him delete his tweet. We shouldn’t tolerate indecent and abusive bullying of women on our public platforms,” she said.

However, Agnihotri did not back out even after when microblogging site locked the filmmaker’s account for the content and made him delete his tweet.

He was back on Twitter on Tuesday and hit hack at Swara Bhasker with another tweet. “Dear @ReallySwara, thnx for curbing my FoE. Very liberal, indeed. It’s given me strong motivation & made me more determined to defeat India’s enemies- #UrbanNaxals. Last time it was your mother who stopped my film at JNU. And you know what happened. Thnx for rejuvenating our fight,” Vivek wrote.

Talking to IANS about the feud, Swara said, “It is not about me. I see this as an attack on women who are calling for solidarity for rape survivors. The nun in Kerala has been very brave in coming out with this story. Instead of supporting her, to use her ordeal to mock it and abuse and slander another woman — it’s just petty, hateful, insensitive and frankly quite sick.”
