She even went as far as saying according to history they might refer to them as “Nazis”. Her tweet read:

“A Jamati died of Corona when police and doctors went to check their families they were attacked and killed, secular media, make these mullas + (and) secular media stand in a line and shoot them dead… f****k the history they may call us Nazis who cares, life is more imp (important) than fake image.”
