#AareyForest destruction is about greed, hubris and foolishness. The fact is that ALTERNATIVE SPACES FOR THE CARSHED exist, have been okayed by experts. Protest against colossal stupidity & this damaging decision! #SaveAarey #SaveAareyForest @ConserveAarey @Dev_Fadnavis pic.twitter.com/JR0x8F0Puo

“AAREY=OXYGEN + No Flooding in rains Mumbai needs metro shed but there are alternative spaces #AAREYFOREST #SAVEAAREY #SAVEITFOROURCHILDREN” the text on the original placard read.
On October 20, 2019, replying to a Twitter user, she put out a tweet saying that Kamlesh Tiwari Murder was shameful and bigotry & hate should not be tolerated. Along with that, she also asked other users to join her in demanding justice for the murderers of #Tabrez #PehluKhan #Akhlaq.
Will you also join me in demanding justice for the murderers of #Tabrez #PehluKhan #Akhlaq , the man burnt alive in #Rajsamand ? @NoyonSENSE 🙏🏿🙏🏿🙏🏿 Rule of Law and justice for one and all. Agree? https://t.co/UjldzSgnFq

The above information proves that even though she did tweet demanding justice for Kamlesh Tiwari, the photo that is going viral is FAKE and has been morphed using editing software.
