Twitterati have stood rock solid behind an Ola cabbie against whom a complaint was filed by Kanav Sharma, an AT Kearney employee for his views supporting CAA, NRC and Indian economy.
Bengaluru: By now, most of you would be aware of how an employee at Kearney Kanav Sharma lodged a complaint against an Ola cabbie for his viewpoints on various issues like CAA, NRC, NPR and Indian economy.
And as his complaint on Twitter went viral, scores of Twitterati have expressed their anger and resolved not to use Ola services.
I think the question should be asked to @kearney. And why @olacabs persecuted this man's driver for expressing his views.— Aakash (Double Aey Kay Aye Ess Ech) (@Ateendriyo) January 24, 2020
And whether our @LabourMinistry and @santoshgangwar are awake to this online Lynch mob?
Pathetic privileged SOB, this Kanav.— Bharath (@brakoo) January 24, 2020
The driver spoke his thoughts out. Agree, disagree, debate. Probably has a poor family in his home village somewhere and this Scheißkopf is hitting his livelihood instead.
Shame on you, man. https://t.co/frAnvHsgEm

Sadly, this is not the first incident of this magnitude. We also told you the story of a Palakkad doctor who was prevailed upon to resign for his views supporting PM Modi and the CAA.
As a few disgruntled souls raised a complaint, the hospital management deemed it fit to sever the services of Ved Vyazz, a critical care expert.
These two incidents are just a synecdoche of how intolerant the other side has become even though they preach tolerance to the entire world.
Protests are also taking place for no reason at Shaheen Bagh.
Not only at Shaheen Bagh, the protests against the Citizenship Amendment Act across the country have only proved emphatically that the participants have either not read the act fully or have wantonly abstained from reading, with the obvious intention of creating violence and vandalism in the society. There were allegations of bribing the protesters as well.
All that the CAA does is to grant citizenship to persecuted minorities of Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh who have been residing in India hitherto December 31, 2014. What is essentially a one-time offer to integrate the minorities socially and emotionally with India is being seen as a divisive and communal.
The Act enables around 32000 minority members to become citizens of India.
The least the protesters could do is wait for the Supreme Court verdict on the issue. The top court will rehear the case after four weeks.
