Sushmita Sinha is a feminist and an Instagrammer who is being trolled on Twitter after she shared a picture where she is purportedly using Haritalika Teej Vrat Katha as toilet paper
On her Instagram story, she posted a video in Hindi saying, “I don’t have any use for this booklet now, so I am thinking of using it as a tissue paper or toilet paper, what do you think?”
She is being trolled for ‘disrespecting a Hindu festival’. Hartalika Teej is a festival celebrated by women in many parts of India and Nepal to welcome the rain gods with dance and prayers. The booklet Sushmita Sinha is showing in the Instagram story is for the festival of Teej.
Netizens with anger are tweeting #ArrestSushmitasinha on Twitter.

Aghast. You may or may not agree with rituals, practices or customs but to disrespect someone's beliefs & religion is INSANE.
This Sushmita Sinha's disgusting act targeting Hindu rituals & gods shows her shallowness.
Why can't people learn to respect others' religion & beliefs? pic.twitter.com/kwPfpzb536
