In a controversial statement, Haryana home minister Anil Vij on Monday said whoever possess seeds of anti-nationalism they should destroy it. The minister made the comment while referring to climate activist Disha Ravi’s arrest.

“Whoever harbours seeds of anti-nationalism in their mind, they have to completely destroy it, be it #Disha_Ravi or anyone else,” Anil Vij tweeted.

Hours after Anil Vij posted his tweet, it was flagged by a Twitter account based in Germany.

The microblogging platform also issued a notice to Vij in this regard.

“We have received a complaint regarding your account, @anilvijminister for the following content (Vij's particular tweet In Hindi—(Desh virodh ka beej…Whoever harbours the seed..). We have investigated the reported content and have found that it is not subject to removal under the Twitter Rules or German law. Accordingly, we have not taken any action as a result of this specific report,” the Twitter notice read.

The minister shared screenshots of the notice on Twitter.

On Saturday, Delhi Police arrested climate activist Disha Ravi from Bengaluru for her alleged role in sharing a toolkit regarding the farmers’ protests.
