Scribes from ThePrint, News Laundry, Express celebrate Rohit Sardana’s death; Wikipedia page vandalized
Rohit Sardana, a longtime colleague and friend, and one of India’s most recognized TV anchor, died of a heart-attack on Friday.
41-year-old Sardana, who occasionally penned for our website NewsBred, was suffering from Coronavirus. His shows, both with Zee TV and Aaj Talk, were massive hits, much to the dislike of Left-Liberals and their army on social media.
Within minutes of his death, Rohit Sardana’s wikipedia page was edited with abuse, and vandalized with vile remarks. Some of the abuses are unprintable. Indeed, his wikipedia page was edited 500 times today.
OpIndia took the trouble of scanning the remarks of such forces in Social Media on Rohit’s death and were shocked to find most of them in celebratory mood; scavengers or vultures who feed on dead and yet call themselves human beings.
