Aligarh child murder: Ashoke Pandit slams Sonam Kapoor

Bollywood actress Sonam Kapoor and filmmaker Ashoke Pandit got into Twitter brawl over Aligarh child murder. On June 5, 2019, a girl in Tappal area was abducted and killed in a revenge crime over a financial dispute. Her body was found in a garbage dump on Sunday by police.

Many Bollywood celebrities expressed their anger on Twitter over the incident. Sonam Kapoor wrote# "What has happened to baby (victim) is. Heartbreaking and horrific. I pray for her and her family. I also urge people to not make this into a selfish agenda. This is a little girls death, not a reason to spread your hate."

Filmmaker Ashoke Pandit called Sonam Kapoor ‘double standards’. He tweeted,"@sonamakapoor On (victim) U questioned d values of india by tweeting : “I am Hindustan. I am ashamed. 8 years old gang raped & murdered in 'Devi'-sthaan Temple.”And nw on (victim) you tweet saying “I urge Ppl to not make ds into a selfish agenda.” Why this disparity ?"

To which Sonam replied, "Because I practice Hinduism and I believe in karma."

Ashoke went on to tweet, "I hv nt qstnd ur beliefs bt want to knw why dr’s a diffrnce in Ur reaction btwn (victim) & (victim).Why ds delayed reaction ?Why no playcards? Why nt tkng names of d accused ?Don’t U think al crimes shld b condemned wth same intensity nd similar language (sic)". Sonam tweeted back to him by writing, "I’m sure you have better things to do then troll me. Hope you find peace and love. Thank you for your opinions, this made my day. Ignorance is truly bliss."

Sonam Kapoor was trolled in the past too.
