Indian author and Booker prize winner, Arundhati Roy has become the talk of the town after her comments against the Indian state and Army. In a recent video, Arundhati Roy can be heard saying that the Pakistan Army never deployed its military against its own people. Soon after Twitter slammed the author for her “anti-India stance”.
Indian author Arundhati Roy has once again hit the headlines. This time for her comments against the Indian Army and siding with the Pakistan’s side. In a video, Roy could be heard saying that the Pakistan Army never unleashed its military against its own people.
The comment drew criticism from across India. One of the first to slam the Booker prize winner was Tarak Fatah, a former leftist student leader and a journalist from Canada, who criticised the country where he was born - Pakistan.
In his Twitter post, he wrote, “Pakistan has never deployed its military against its own people. Was she blind and deaf when 3 million people died in the Bangladesh genocide by Pakistan army in 1971? Is she unaware of Balochistan? She’s literally reading off a Pakistan ISI briefing note.”
Soon after, several users on Twitter slammed the author.

In her Pakistani ISI narrated speech, there is no mention of, "influence of Pakistani Terrorism in Kashmir" is a fear & threat for us without forces deployed by India.pic.twitter.com/KUi43unfbC
#ArundhatiRoy lives in a delusional world.— Dharmarajan (@iamdharmarajan1) August 25, 2019
Her Sparrow brain can't see atrocities of Pakistan Army in Balochistan / Sindh / Pashtun.
She forgot the genocide of Bengali people in 1971.
I think she is suffering from alzheimer's disease.
She needs to see a doctor immediately.
