Nusrat Jahan Gets Death Threats; Why Is ‘Didi’ Silent?
This is not the first time Nusrat Jahan has been threatened and abused for her views or stand on issues like marrying a Hindu and wearing ‘sindoor’.
Trinamool Congress MP and film star Nusrat Jahan has received death threats on social media for dressing up as Goddess Durga for advertisements for a clothing line that she posted on Instagram on September 17. The actor left for London on September 27 for a film shoot but her office has alerted authorities. “We have taken up the matter with the Bengal government and the Ministry of External Affairs, who are in turn coordinating with the Indian Embassy in London (UK), for protection, as an additional security measure,” a close aide said.
“Ms Jahan has always stood for her secular and inclusive viewpoints and these trolls do not deter her,” he added. With hours of Ms Jahan posting a video and photos of her photoshoot for the ad, in which she is dressed as the goddess holding a trishul (trident), threats start popping up on her timeline, from India and Bangladesh, according to sources. This is not the first time Ms Jahan has been threatened and abused for her views or stand on issues.
