A Twitter user with the account name Pooja Singh (@pooja303singh) has been in a major controversy. It all started with the users complaining to Airtel DTH regarding bad service.
Airtel representative was quick to reply, acknowledge the complain and assured to look into the issue.
Hey, I most definitely appreciate you reaching out here! We’ll take a closer look into that & get back shortly with more information. Thank you, Shoaib

What was shocking is that the Twitter user Pooja refused to work with a “Muslim” customer representative and replied with the below tweet.
Obvious, the vicious natured tweet was viral within no time and several people slammed the twitter user Pooja for her tweet. Several celebrities from Politicians, Journalists to activists criticized Pooja for her tweet.
Dear @pooja303singh that photo of our flag you have in your DP- you just let it down. If ever the horrible phrase anti national was meant for anyone; it's for you- for insulting the book that matters above all- the Constitution https://t.co/XcDia6TTJn

Dear @Airtel_Presence this conversation is genuine (I’ve seen the timeline myself). I refuse to pay another penny to a company that condones such blatant bigotry. I’m beginning the process of porting my number to another service provider & canceling my DTH & Broadband. pic.twitter.com/BZxJOaEsN6

What frightens me is how India has changed so much that people have no problems saying this sort of garbage openly & how cravenly our big companies accept it.
Day after day, the instances pile up.
Very worrying https://t.co/chXIjd2zLs

I hope she gets a 16 hour Air India flight with an all Muslim flight crew. She can spend the flight screaming about their “work ethic” while trying to jump out. https://t.co/9jxpRhWkvQ

Dear sick ma’am. You have reached Airtel customer service. For Hindu press 1.. for upper caste press 2… for North Indian press 3.. for specific state press 4..congrats! You are responsible for dividing country and ensuring our politics stays about that and we remain 3rd world. https://t.co/cyOVqklYD6

Airtel should just hire Customer Service Representatives whose name is Savarkar. Then for every complain he will apologise and say “The Mighty alone can afford to be merciful and therefore where else can we return but to the parental doors of the Customer”

The Tweet found a place on account of former CM of Jammu and Kashmir Omar Abdullah’s account, which shows the criticality of the tweet, and the importance how one tweet can be used to prove the agenda.
But now as most would have imagined, Pooja is receiving rape threats, sexual abuse and personal remarks on her. The twitter user posted the screenshot of these threats.
Uttar Pradesh Police has taken the matter into consideration and asked Twitter user to share the number or account details from whom she has been receiving threats.
Ma'am kindly share your calling number in message box.

As the issues advances, the hypocrisy of the self proclaimed Liberals has been exposed. When Twitter user Pooja rejected to interact with Muslim Customer care representative, the entire lobby slammed her, but now when she is facing such disgraceful remarks, we do not see any of them condemning it.
I don't endorse @pooja303singh statement being BJP supporter but recently
1. Dhruv Rathee caught on FB for writing islamophobic posts & blaming religion
2. Muslims boycotted Hindu traders in Mumbai
3. Mulla asked cow to be slaughtered in KA
Barkha chose to be silent. https://t.co/tDs33J0Ma7

Have no idea who @pooja303singh is nor do I endorse her tweet, but @BDUTT giving pious sermons about ‘our flag’ is hilarious, remember her 26/11 coverage that exposed our troops positions? Remember Hafiz Syed’s endorsement? Radia tapes? The treacly tributes to Burhan Wani? https://t.co/IKjzzzFF4n

Had not agreed with @pooja303singh’s first tweet, but this abuse, rape threats and all the vicious hatred directed against her by ‘peace-loving people’ only serve to prove HER point, as she rightly says. This is beyond sick! https://t.co/mdH1gwBnxz

These rape threats to Pooja need an outrage too from those who outraged against her!
Media & eminent journalist should not shy away, but highlight harassment Pooja is facing!
We must fight for the right cause be it on any side of ideology, liberal, conservative, left or right.
