“Sharia Upholds Justice & Equality”: Netizens Respond After Filmmaker Anand Patwardhan Compares It To Hindutva

In wake of the judgement acquitting conspirators of Babri Masjid’s demolition and the Hathras gangrape and murder case, Anand Patwardhan, award-winning filmmaker and director of the acclaimed documentary Ram Ke Nam, responded to the incidents saying, “We are now living under Hindutva version of Sharia Law!”

Netizens responded to the baseless accusation, defending Sharia as being unparalleled with the incidents. They held that the Sharia law imposes strict punishment over persons accused of sexual assault and that it does not permit the destruction of previously erected places of worship. Others highlighted that it was unnecessary to bring in the aspect of Sharia law and that it brought to light the filmmaker’s “inner islamophobia”.
