Bollywood has always targeted hinduism, and defamed it at many instances. Just because we have been tolerant for so many years they have started thinking that we are meek and vulnerable and that they can get away with whatever they do#Boycott_Atrangi_Re pic.twitter.com/rQPzORAHXn

Bollywood has always targeted Hinduism. And it has been maligned on several occasions. Just because we’ve been tolerant for so many years, they start to think we’re meek and weak. pic.twitter.com/gcqI53lqUL

📌 Denigrates Hindu Dieties & sacred texts
📌 Promotes #lovejihaad
📌 Wrongly depicts Hindus as violent
