Singer Abhijeet isn’t really known for diplomacy. Already earlier this year, Abhijeet had gotten into trouble with his comment on Salman Khan’s verdict. Now, on July 2, the singer yet again caused a Twitter furore when one of his tweets – with stark communal overtones – on the murder of the Chennai Infosys techie S Swathi. The tweets have been brought to the notice of the Mumbai Police, who are now looking into the matter.

The singer claimed that the murder was a case of Love Jihad. He even tweeted to the PMO Twitter handle saying “Hindu parents want #JusticeforSwati /revenge 4 our child #SWATI who was butchered by #LoveJihad…”

Quite naturally, the tweet did not go down well in Twitterverse, with people hitting back with a series of protest tweets, some even asking for the arrest of the singer.

 

It was in response to this last tweet by Swati Chaturvedi, in which she says “@abhijeetsinger is jealous of Pakistani singers who took his mediocre career! Even tried to incite SS against them!”, that Abhijeet went on a rant against Pakistanis, Pakistani singers and the Muslim community. When others raised objections to the tonality and the uncouth language used in his tweets, the singer minced no words while responding to them either.

Here are some of his tweets:

 

There were some fans, though, who tweeted in support of Abhijeet, asking others to mind their language…

 

…but Abhijeet didn’t even let go of that, and decided to put his own two cents into the conversation as well.

 

The singer even took on the Twitter user who said that he should be arrested for his communal comments, saying: “Please arrest me .. Bcos I kick these anti Hindus, Hindustan haters, Paki supporters irrespective of their gender”.

 

Calling out to Bollywood and Leftists, Abhijeet defended his rant citing patriotism:

 

Later in the day, Mumbai Police took note of the complaint made by Chaturvedi in her tweet, and responded asking her to make a formal complaint so that they could “help us understand the situation better”.

 

In the meanwhile, the singer is getting massively trolled for his rants, with more people tagging the police and other authorities to take action on him.

 

Update:

Swati Chaturvedi tweeted saying that she just got a call from Mumbai Police assuring action against the singer:

        The guy is a representation of how fringe talks are going mainstream today, and alas is gaining more acceptability. Such comments in the past would produce widespread outrage, but today seems the outrage has remained selective.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;It's a shame that this person calls himself a representative of Hinduism, but himself doesn't follow the ideals of Hinduism. This is the same issue facing Islam today, where fringe extreme elements are gaining more prominence over the moderate and saner voices in Islam.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;The saner and moderate voices cutting across all religions should counter such extreme voices more vehemently.

              Abhijit is and has always been an arrogant piece of $hit. Also, for eons he is not getting any songs to sing... Or at least any hit.lt;br/gt;So, what other way to get media coverage than bark ?
