Mediaperson Samina Shaikh stooped to prove her point by hurting the religious sentiments of Hindus by her twitter post that caused a rage today. She used the sensitive tragic incident where a pregnant elephant died after food laden with firecrackers burst in her mouth to shame Hindus by suggesting that those who worship Lord Ganesha also killed the elephant. In Hinduism, Lord Ganesha has the head of an elephant and elephants are also considered holy.
A picture of elephant’s potrait was shared by you, which was actually shared by a friend of yours who’s muslim, but since anyone commented it – you always hide that reply. pic.twitter.com/HxdB54YldO

While this sheer heinous act of animal cruelty has attracted condemnation from all quarters. Working in Times of India, mediaperson Samina Shaikh, was earlier on too caught and exposed by netizens for her controversial and anti-Hindu and Homophobic
comments, tried to use the incident to shame Hindus.
After a furore in the twitter world, she went on to delete her post. In the now-deleted Tweet, the journalist wrote: “Jiski Pooja karte ho ussi ko takleef pahocchate ho” meaning “you’ll hurt those whom you’ll worship”, insinuating that the unidentified miscreants behind this cruel act were Hindus.
She later took to Twitter to clarify that she shared the picture of Lord Ganesha which was shared by her “Hindu friend” but because she, as a Muslim, shared it, the ‘andhbhakts’ trolled her.
