In a recent controversy, Dubai's JW Marriott Marquis has terminated their contract with Michelin-starred chef Atul Kochhar after he tweeted that followers of Islam had “terrorised” Hindus for 2,000 years. Even though, he later deleted, and apologised, but he ended up offending, and hurting the sentiments of many of his fans.
Kaneez Surka, stand-up comedienne supported the decision taken by the Dubai hotel and tweeted them asking what will you be serving tonight?
Me: @JWDubaiMarquis what will you be serving tonight?

Trolls being trolls couldn't accept Surka's stand and questioned her that it doesn't suit someone, who herself makes 'cow jokes'. There is one particular tweet, which is highly offensive, and Surka has reported it to Mumbai Police. The insulting tweet reads- 'Now @kaneezsurka Will be masturbating thinking of her father if she knows who the guy was that fucked her mom'. At the time of writing the story, there has been no response from Mumbai Police on Kaneez's tweet.
Check Kaneez's tweet to Mumbai Police.
Dear @MumbaiPolice how do I take action against this person under Sections 294 of the IPC obscene acts. 354A sexual harassment and 509- outraging the modesty of a woman. Please advise. https://t.co/zLDfe753W0

This came on the back of chef Kochhar tweeting on Sunday saying “It’s sad to see that you [Chopra] have not respected the sentiments of Hindus who have been terrorized by Islam for over 2000 years. Shame on You.” He later deleted the tweet, and apologised saying "There is no justification for my tweet, a major error made in the heat of the moment on Sunday. I fully recognize my inaccuracies that Islam was founded around 1,400 years ago and I sincerely apologise. I am not Islamophobic; I deeply regret my comments that have offended many.” But it was too late because by then the damage was already done!
