A member of the BJP’s national executive and general secretary of the party’s Karnataka unit C. T. Ravi stirred quite a controversy by "tweeting" inflammatory comments on July 27 over the Saharanpur riots in Uttar Pradesh. 

C.T. Ravi tweeted: "Only the Gujarat model, that worked from 2002 in containing their rioting elements, can work. Apply across Bharat."

However, the original tweet cannot be found on his timeline anymore. 

According to reports, Delhi-based lawyer and activist Shehzad Poonawalla who is associated with the Congress party has already petitioned the National Human Rights Commission saying that he is using social media to fan communal passions.
