BJP leader Sambit Patra took to Twitter on Thursday to criticize a poster seen at an anti-Citizenship Amendment Bill protest at Shaheen Baug in Delhi.
Sambit Patra wrote, "'Hum Dekhenge' (We will see)...So this is what Shaheen Bagh wants to see in the name of the protests against CAA. A wastage of the holy Hindu symbol. A mockery of "holy swastika"? Ofcourse they were one in the JNU who shouted 'Until's India is destroyed, war will remain, war will remain' Wake up before its too late."
“हम देखेंगे” ..तो ये शाहीन बाग वाले CAA के Protest के नाम में दरअसल यही देखना चाहतें है ..— Sambit Patra (@sambitswaraj) January 16, 2020
हिंदुओं के पवित्र चीन्हों की बर्बादी ..”पवित्र स्वस्तिक” की बर्बादी??
Off course they were the once in JNU who shouted “भारत की बर्बादी तक जंग रहेगी जंग रहेगी”

Twitter users soon pointed out that the "Swastika" symbol from the poster was in fact the symbol of German dictator Hitler's Nazi party.
However, Twitterati continued to slam the Shaheen Baug protests. "Happy that the Hindu hatred is out there in the open now. No more Taquiyya. It’s naked Hindu Hatred now," wrote author Shefali Vaidya.

"This is how Genocide of #Kashmir began. With offending posters. Never forget. Defeat Neo-Islamist invasion of India," filmmaker Vivek Agnihotri tweeted.
Here is how Twitter reacted:
Crushing a sacred Hindu Symbol and imposing Burkha on bindi wearing Hindu Women. https://t.co/F7L6moQ9Cz— The Frustrated Indian (@FrustIndian) January 16, 2020
Islam crushing Hinduism. Thanks for removing all doubts. https://t.co/UksrnMvcyG— Rahul Roushan (@rahulroushan) January 16, 2020
Tell me again how the open blatant Hinduphobia is going to make the fight against Islamophobia inclusive? https://t.co/JDtUHaDhV3— Yashwant Deshmukh (@YRDeshmukh) January 16, 2020
Sabaji, this a bigoted poster..the shattered/crumbling #swastik is distasteful . Secondly, tenor of the poster amounts to an open threat. R u normalising a morbid trend where professional protestors can hold a law passed by both houses of Parliament,captive with their nuisance? https://t.co/wdW3QRjmVF— Tuhin A.
