Ravindra Tiwari, a resident of Vikhroli Parksite, was informed by one of his friends that a certain doctor by the name of Sunil Kumar Nishad had taken to social media site Facebook to post messages that were hurting certain religious sentiments. "I sent him a friend request on May 5, 2019, and he accepted my friend request immediately, said Tiwari."

On May 7, 2019, I came across a post by him, attacking and criticising Brahmins and the Hindu religion," said Ravindra Tiwari. "I took a screenshot of the message. Later, I found out that many of his friends too were trying to inform him and make him understand that his messages are derogatory and he should delete them. But he didn't budge and even told them to complain to the cops if they wanted to. I then decided to register a complaint against him," he added.
