NCW asks Twitter to block Siddharth for tweet on Saina Nehwal

The NCW sprung to action after a tweet by chairperson Rekha Sharma who had asked Twitter India why the actors account still existed after the double entendre

The National Commission for Women (NCW) informed the press today it has written to Twitter to block the handle of actor Siddharth for a tweet on ace shuttler and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Saina Nehwal after the post, made on 6 January, outraged users.

“@NCWIndia has taken cognisance. Chairperson @sharmarekha has written to @DGPMaharashtra for investigating & registering FIR in the matter. NCW has also written to @TwitterIndia for blocking the actor’s account & to take appropriate action against him for posting such remarks,” the commission shared on Twitter.

The NCW was responding to a tweet by its chairperson, Rekha Sharma, in this regard. “This man needs a lesson or two! @TwitterIndia why this person’s account still exists? …taking it up with Concerned police,” Sharma posted.

Meanwhile, Siddharth, who mostly works in Tamil and Telugu cinema, and has also done projects, including ‘Rang De Basanti,’ issued clarification for his tweet. “COCK & BULL. That’s the reference. Reading otherwise is unfair and leading! Nothing disrespectful was intended, said or insinuated. Period,” he tweeted.

Earlier, commenting on Nehwal’s condemnation of the 5 January lapse in Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s security in Punjab, Siddharth posted, “Subtle c**k champion of the world…Thank God we have protectors of India. Shame on you #Rihanna.”

The actor’s reference to was due to the popstar’s tweet from February last year over the now ‘suspended’ farmers’ protests, which read, “Why aren’t we talking about this?”

Meanwhile, responding to Siddharth, Nehwal said that he could have chosen better words to express himself.
