As Mumbai people were busy celebrating Ganesha Puja, hate-mongers took on twitter to spread communal hatred. One of the twitter handle @iAnkurSingh posted link of an online platform hindi.revoltpress.com saying that 500 Muslims attacked a Ganesh Pandal in Mumbai and disfigured the Ganpati idols. It was retweeted more than hundred time.

Few twitter handles including that of Sanjay Nirupam reported it to Mumbai Police asking if it was true and Mumbai police swiftly responded that it isn’t and they have registered an offence for spreading communal hatred and rumour mongering on social media.
