Karnataka IPS officer D Roopa gave her response to the on-going trolling over her comments on firecrackers and true "Indology."
The tussle between the IPD officer and account named True Indology began with Roopa questioning the need to burst firecrackers during Deepavali celebrations and its response.
True Indology account was suspended, angering the right-wing section of Twitter. Several accounts came in support including actress Kangana Ranaut who is also a right-wing-leaning person.
D Roopa, the Home Secretary to the Government of Karnataka, said that she chose not to say anything because for her there is life beyond Twitter and that people have 'real responsibilities'.
For disseminating info abt an Order of Govt, a decision taken at highest level (not my personal opinion/order) u try to silence an official. For what? Do u expect me to say don't follow govt order? Sorry folks,that's not going to happen.— D Roopa IPS (@D_Roopa_IPS) November 18, 2020
For all those fathoming my silence,well,there's life beyond twitter, the real world,with real job,real responsibilities. U may troll me, abuse me, accuse me,for u have ample time to do just that,but can't take away my conviction& commitment to duty& Law of the land. Jai Hind 🇮🇳— D Roopa IPS (@D_Roopa_IPS) November 18, 2020
