In yet another case of social media abuse against external affairs minister Sushma Swaraj, who helped an inter-faith couple get passports, a Twitter user has asked her husband Swaraj Kaushal to “beat her up” for “Muslim appeasement”.

A resentful Kaushal re-tweeted the message posted by one Mukesh Gupta (@MG_IITDelhi) which asked him to beat his wife “when she comes home” and “teach her not to do Muslim appeasement” as “Muslims never vote for the BJP”.

Gupta deleted the tweet later although Kaushal posted a screenshot of the same.

Kaushal later told Gupta that his words had brought unbearable pain on him and went on to describe his wife’s devotion to the family.

Swaraj has been trolled for days since she helped Tanvi Seth, wife of Mohammad Anas Siddiqui, get her passport after an officer harassed her for not changing her name to a Muslim one after her marriage.
