When Sushma Swaraj's 'Like' 'crucified' Manish Tewari over Father Uzhunnalil


One should be careful what one posts on social media, especially if one is a public figure. Congress leader Manish Tewari probably learned it the hard way when a tweet he posted last year over Father Tom Uzhunnalil came back to bite him. All it took was for Union External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj to 'like' his tweet.

In a bid to attack the Narendra Modi government over the abduction of the priest from Yemen, Manish Tewari on March 29, 2016, tweeted that Father Tom was "allegedly crucified" by the ISIS. He blamed the Modi government for doing nothing to stop the same. Even raised a question if the inaction was because Father Tom was a Christian. While Manish Tewari's tweets found support from some and backlash from others the real trolling began only on Wednesday when Sushma Swaraj liked Tewari's old tweet.

The 'liked' tweet became the butt of all jokes taking Twitter by storm. As people lauded Sushma Swaraj's simple yet powerful way to deal with criticism of her ministry and the government, Manish Tewari was not the one to keep quiet. He not only acknowledged that Swaraj had 'liked' his tweet but also responded to her as well as the trolls.

Embed tweet:

From the looks of it, Tewari jumping the gun a year ago to attack the

Modi government, came back like a blast from the past. The embarrassment was very real but what stood out was the way Sushma Swaraj struck hard with nothing more than a simple 'like'.
