A Twitter handle called 'Official Peeing Human' has been panned for comapring Hindutva to Christianity and Islam in a post.
"The opposite of Hinduism is not Islam. It is not Christianity. It is not Socialism. It is Hindutva," the post read.
It compared Hinduism and Hindutva on many counts. Hinduism is thousands of years old practised religion in the world while Hindutva was first proposed as a political idea in 1923 by Savarkar, read a comparison.
Another one said that Hinduism is unique in its inclusiveness whereas Hindutva is exclusive and its practitioners actively hate and fear other religions especially Islam and Christianity.
The post concluded with questioning the readers- so are you a Hindu or a Hindutvavadi?

The post was also shared by Congress MP Shashi Tharoor. "An interesting, though incomplete, comparative table doing the rounds," he wrote.
The post was panned on Twitter. "By dragging Islam and Christianity into your crap Hindutva is disgusting. Don't even Dare to compare your scrap with Islam. You liberals are the psuedologues who indirectly support this selfish and bigot ideology," wrote one user.
"You say Hinduism is about inclusiveness,then oppose a law that gives Citizenship to persecuted minorities #facePalm," wrote another user.

It is interesting to note that @thepeeinghuman is behaving in same way as hindutva brigade does after posting a bigoted or fake news material.— Aamir Azhar | عامر اظہر (@CatchAamir) January 8, 2020
Despite knowing the hurt and anger towards their post, they neither retracted it nor have apologized for it. Guess Muslims are fair game! https://t.co/t12JhSgMN7
Nonsense! You proved that you can't defend one religion without defaming other. It shows your shallow understanding of matters pertaining to religious affairs. You must've consulted a comparative religion expert first. Disgusting.@thepeeinghuman @amitbehere @Shehla_Rashid https://t.co/WKY8lxQh0H— Koshur! (@HQNVD) January 8, 2020
