Bollywood actors are always active on social media. Many stars have become more active on social media due to corona lockdown. But some Bollywood artists have not liked the platform, one of which is Bollywood actress Huma Qureshi's brother Saqib Saleem. Yes, Saqib Saleem is one of the Hindi film celebs who gets trolled every time on social media.
Saqib got so trolled that he had to say goodbye to Twitter in June this year. Now Saqib has given a befitting reply to the trollers in an interview to the media. He believes the definition of social networking sites has now changed. "When these networking platforms came into being, they were built to connect people with their ideologies," he said. I watched the film 'Social Dylema', which talks about how Facebook was launched, people get organ donor and it unites long-lost friends."
Challenging the trollers, according to media reports, Saqib added, "When you are behind a computer screen and your real identity is not there, all you do is abuse people. I am from Delhi and I want to say to all these people, ‘If you have the courage, abuse me to my face.’ These are the same people who will be the first ones to run to meet celebrities if they spot them. I feel we interpret freedom of expression in a very wrong manner. Freedom of expression doesn’t mean I can abuse people, it means I can share my point of view."
Continuing with his talk, Saqib added to the trollers, "You're not even real, you hid your identity behind a computer screen. If you're real, come to the real world," says Saqib, who is confident in solving the problems. He says that speaking out online does not help anyone.
