Tanzila Anas had tweeted, “Bajrang Dal Activist. That’s it, that’s the tweet.”

The tweet was utterly in bad taste and sought to justify the murder of youth from the majority community.

In a statement posted on social media, Gaana said, “With regards to the social media posts by a recently joined employee of Gaana, these posts do not represent our values. She is no longer employed by the company.” The platform also said that it “respects all religions and communities of India.”

Chandigarh BJP had filed a criminal complaint against Tanzila Anis and called for Gaana to sack her.
