A day after Sonam Kapoor was trolled on Twitter for tweeting about the meat ban in Mumbai, actress Sonakshi Sinha has suffered the same fate when she referred to India as 'Ban-istan' for the controversial decision.

Mumbai's civic body, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation, has proposed a four-day ban on the slaughter and sale of meat in the city, in respect for the Jain festival of fasting.

Sonam Kapoor links India's meat ban to misogyny, gets punished by Twitter trolls

Sinha, who is in Budapest shooting for Force 2, got wind of the ban of meat in Mumbai and tweeted, “This is a free country! Welcome to BAN-istan... I meant india.. Stupid autocorrect.”

And while Sonakshi didn't make any blunders like Sonam, who mistakenly linked misogyny and the meat ban in her tweet, she was given the same treatment by Twitter trolls, some of whom even resorted to fat-shaming the actress.

Mumbai banned meat for 2 days as per the demand of the MINORITY Jains, that too only in very few areas with Jain population. It is the majority like Sonam and Sonakshi who are not happy, get it? Meat is avialable every where else and also in hotels in the banned area. So now you accept India is secular?
Malik | 4 years ago | Reply | Recommend So everything that has a TAN in the end of the word is basically bad or plain evil. We should act smart and get an English name for Pakistan. For example, Hindustan is known as India outside the country. Perhaps, Pakistan should promote its international name as Pureland or something creative like that.
