A photo has surfaced on the internet in which a quote is attributed to journalist Sweta Singh.
The quote read: “श्रीलंका ने बुर्क़े पर पाबंदी लगा दी| फ्रांस ने मस्जिदें बंद करवा दी| अमेरिका ने शाहरुख़, आमिर की निर्वस्त्र तलाशी ले ली| चीन ने सीधे क़ुरान पर पाबंदी लगा दी| लेकिन भारत में सेकुलरो को आज तक आतंकवाद का धर्म ही पता नहीं चला- श्वेता सिंह”
(Translation- Sri Lanka banned the burka. Mosques are closed in France. America frisked Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir Khan. China directly banned the Quran. But secularism in India does not even know the religion of terrorism till date – Shweta Singh)
