Yesterday afternoon, on 3rd August 2020, SereneAir Responded to an issue that surfaced recently. It sparked debate all over social media, in particular, Twitter.
A twitter user, Gotam Kataria, shared a video of a SereneAir employee whose actions were unpleasant for a group of people. The actions were hurtful for a religious minority group. In his tweet, Kataria questioned whether a minority group would get equal treatment as the majority often claims in such instances.
Is this not blasphemy?
Are blasphemy laws only applicable on minorities?

Does govt will take any action and make sure implementation of blasphemy laws here? 1/2 pic.twitter.com/VxU6csEdZX
