Meet Hindutva’s new warriors: All they need is sex, all they get is Twitter

Text Size:

A peek inside the heart and mind of Girish Maheshwari, arrested for “threatening” Congress spokesperson’s child with rape.

A Mumbai Police team went to Ahmedabad Thursday and arrested a man called Girish Maheshwari. On Twitter a few days ago, he had threatened to rape Congress spokesperson Priyanka Chaturvedi’s 10-year-old daughter.

Meet Mr Maheshwari:

He had issued the threat in response to a fake quote where Chaturvedi has been falsely accused of saying, “Only one rape has been committed in Mandsaur. It is the right of Muslims to rape. Our party is with Irfan (the rapist)”.

Maheshwari is 36. His Facebook page says he is single and interested in women. He is self-employed and claims to have been working with the Bhartiya Janata Party as an “accounting associate”.

His 558 Facebook friends include people with names like “Bajrang mantri” and others with profile pictures wherein they are wearing RSS uniforms.

Many pictures uploaded by Maheshwari on his Facebook page are public. They give some insight into the mind of someone who threatens to rape a young girl on social media.

‘Lonely’ Maheshwari has put up several political posts supporting Hindutva, the BJP, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, and opposing the Congress. One disturbing photoshopped picture depicts a Muslim man beheaded with a sword. He sees Narendra Modi as a Hindu king.

Then there are non-political posts where women are being depicted as sex objects. Such as:

He hopes women are checking him out online.

He hopes his life turns out like this.

Unfortunately, his life is more like this.

A 2017 photo said, “Boys who are pure in their hearts are always alone.”

This is how he seems to think he should greet women he likes:

This could be his idea of a date:

If only they’d propose him and perhaps make his life easier:

Maybe it’s a harmless appreciation of cherubic charm, but there’s something disturbing about the number of children’s photos he posts, especially in light of his threat to rape a minor.

Back in the day, he used to post photos of women and ask them to call him.

He seems to be mourning that it’s become harder to stalk women on Facebook.

And, perhaps hopes his friends will post photos of their girlfriends.

It seems, sometimes, his obsession with women and politics converges. In this post, he says the bikini-clad model is ‘the mother of the Congress’.

In his worldview the modern woman may assert her religion but must otherwise hide her body.

Going by this photo, people he doesn’t like are depicted as women worshipping Pakistani terrorists.

He likes women in hijab. Does he think that perhaps he can control them better?

Although he seems to hope they’ll do ghar wapsi and become Hindu.

If his sexual frustrations make him feel like a lesser person, he uses Hindutva politics to feel like a man. Here’s a summary of his solution to the self-esteem problem: To be a Hindu is to be everybody’s boss.

Many Hindu/Hindutva proponents, like Maheshwari, not only troll but also seem to show a distinct obsession with rape and women’s sexuality.

After Maheshwari’s tweet to Priyanka Chaturvedi made headlines, many more have joined the chorus and endorsed rape threats to her and her family members.

Perhaps, all that people like Maheshwari need is sex, but what they want is Hindutva. Sadly, all they have is Twitter where they go around abusing and insulting women in sexually charged language, and threaten to rape them.

Why news media is in crisis & How you can fix it

India needs free, fair, non-hyphenated and questioning journalism even more as it faces multiple crises.

But the news media is in a crisis of its own. There have been brutal layoffs and pay-cuts. The best of journalism is shrinking, yielding to crude prime-time spectacle.

ThePrint has the finest young reporters, columnists and editors working for it. Sustaining journalism of this quality needs smart and thinking people like you to pay for it. Whether you live in India or overseas, you can do it here.

  1. It’s not a one man’s obsession.
    It’s a philosophy taught to kidz in small gatherings behind temples at dusk.

  2. What idiot wrote this piece? Is this the level of Journalism that print holds itself to? You’re generalizing all Hindutvawaadis into one big blot.

  3. Very well written article and kudos to you for your guts. I am sharing this on facebook

  4. As I see it, his action was based on provocation caused by a fake post. That comes as a reaction to provocation. It is the same provocation that’s being used to create the mob frenzy regarding child lifting. What we have to see is WHO BENEFITS FROM THE VIOLENCE THAT FOLLOWS SUCH FAKE NEWS. They are the prime source to be investigated and then the source that originated the fake message. It will all, IMHO, point to same source. This is like crying about post Godhra riots where the prime cause the train burning by some peace loving ppl are conveniently omitted as also about 600 Hindus killed by lovers of peace during riots.

  5. Hey ThePrint, Just to remind you that stop spreading such nuisance in the name of Hindutva. This guy seems to be like a senseless moron. But, please stop spreading bad image of Hindutva, He isn’t a Hindutva warrior neither you are. People like him are in every religion, and if you want I can show you many Muslims doing this same thing in the name of Islam, you might came to know about them, But you won’t post that bcz that won’t make you bucks. I hope you got my point.

    • True … For money the media goes to.any extent… They wont dare print against people from the so.called minority who use filthier words n filthy mind…. These trolls happen fr all the radicals… Y showcase only this guy who is only apart of larger netizens usinng filthy language out of whom majority are from the so called minority

    • Indeed we all have seen the cobra post and the morons in the so called main media. Taking the bite for money. Even paytm is exposed. What has the Hindutva achieved in the past four years. Only hate and divisive politics. India has lost all neighouring countries one by one to China. We feel isolation and Modi had to run to China to bailout this time but isn’t it high time that we as a nation every one of us put our heads down and work hard to revive the sagging moral at the international level and build bridges to attain higher standards for every one in India. Stop playing victims and start working for the unity and higher goals.

    • true, actually Print is sycophant and they all congress ally .so, just to defame hinduism /santandharm they pick one or two and do what they want to do.Don’t read and give importance to them .Let them speak non-sense .someday our swami sir will put some defamation case and then office will closed .

    • Muslims do this,so you justifies this act! Actually every men who give rape
      threats and abuse women are definitely sexually frustrated, here this idiot is doing this in the name of Hindu religion. And true Hindus must condemn his actions instead of defending him, besides Bjp/Rss think that tgey own Hindu religion, which is not true.
