A video of a BJP leader calling Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti a ‘bitch’ has gone viral on social media platforms.
In the video, the brother of BJP MLA Choudhary Lal Singh is seen in the video enthusing his supporters with profanity-laden slogans for Mufti, the state’s woman chief minister. His supporters, who are holding India’s national flags, encourage him with loud cheers.
The video evoked angry reactions from politicians, journalists and commentators on social media platforms. Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah demanded filing of FIR against the BJP MLA’s brother. He wrote,”This is absolutely unacceptable language used against @MehboobaMufti & is unequivocally condemned with the request that @JmuKmrPolice file a FIR against this abusive individual.”

Chaudhary Lal Singh was sacked from the Mufti government after he attended a rally in support of the rapists and murderers of the 8-year-old girl in Kathua. Singh held the forest ministry before he was sacked in the face of an international outcry.
Ironically, the participants of Kathua rally too had held the national flags. Jammu and Kashmir is governed by BJP and Mufti’s PDP.
Here are some other reactions;
