Less than a week after Abhijeet Bhattacharya’s Twitter account was suspended over his offensive tweets against JNU student Shehla Rashid, the playback singer has re-joined the micro-blogging site with a new account. Bhattacharya shared a small video on his new account, saying that people are trying to “curb” his voice, but he, along with others, will eliminate those who raise voice against the country.

“Bharat mata ki jai, vande mataram. There’s been an effort to curb my voice. My voice is against those who chant slogans against India, Indian army. We all are together, united. I have started this new Twitter account till my verified account is not active again. You follow me on this account only rest are fake. They are causing me trouble. Boliye jai hind, bharat mata ki jai. I am back. We will together eliminate all those which raise voice against the country,” Abhijeet said.

On Tuesday last week, Twitter suspended his handle after users accused the 58-year-old singer of using “inappropriate” and “insulting” language. “Account Suspended: This account has been suspended…,” stated the message from Twitter on his handle.

On May 22, Abhijeet spewed venom at some women Twitter users, including Rashid, which prompted some of the netizens to lodge a complaint with Twitter. “Sincere thanks to everyone for the support. Abhijeet had to delete his tweet. His Twitter account has also been suspended,” Rashid had tweeted.

Tell me your cage no? Will reach there… Will do the favourite pose.” However, it is unclear if the decision taken by Twitter is temporary or permanent.
