Mehbooba Mufti ears, Farooq Abdullah dance, what people search about Kashmiri politicians on Google

Just a month ago, a popular satirical Facebook page Humans of Hindutva (HOH) admin deleted the page after he claimed to have received death threats.

In a short farewell message, the page admin said that he had “no desire to end up like Gauri Lankesh or Afrazul Khan.” He also ‘congratulated’ Hindutva for “winning this David vs. Goliath fight.”

The phenomenon of targeting the families of political opponents by right wing Hindu trolls on the internet is not new.

When SnapChat CEO made comments that upset many in India, he was trolled, but there was one more person other than the SnapChat CEO, who was caught up in the turmoil and that was his fiancée Miranda Kerr.

Indians first turned towards Google and searched this

Spiegel isn’t married yet, but people definitely were more interested who his wife is. And once they found out that he is engaged, people started targeting her on Instagram

SnapDeal too had to face the brunt after trolls got confused between SnapDeal and SnapChat and started down rating the SnapDeal app.

If you turn towards the search patterns of people on Google, it’s disturbing.

The auto suggest feature of Google will complete the sentence or suggest words based on what other people are searching. We tried finding out what people search about Kashmiri male and female politicians on Google and this what we found.

Mehbooba Mufti

It looks like more people are interested in the Chief Minister’s ears rather than what she has recently said in the assembly.

Farooq Abudllah

Farooq Abdullah is famous for his dance moves, so this came as no surprise. Look like a lot of people are watching videos of Abdullah putting Raveer Singh to shame.

Omar Abdullah

Twitter, no surprises here too.

Ghulam Nabi Azad

Ghulam Nabi Azad is a senior member of the Congress Party of India. One would guess that people search for his contributions. It’s his daughter that people on Google are interested in.

Haseeb Drabu

In the news for the recent budget that the Finance Minster of Jammu and Kashmir presented, his family seems to interest people more than the fate of the economy and the criticism of the Budget.

Muzaffar Beigh

Er Rashid

His one-on-ones with Indian Republic’s Judge Jury Executioner have been a big hit. That reflects on what people search about him on Google.

Bonus Round

We will just leave this one here.
