Calling for open violence is a crime. This is a mob building & hate spreading excercise. This is deeply alarming. Could lead to violence & an artist not getting due process.
Remarks like “System side main”
are an insult to our constitution… pic.twitter.com/oeCfdGFRu5
In the instigating 2-minute long video, Hindustani Bhau has used foul language to tell his followers to keep the system on the side and take matters into their own hands.
System side main. Complaint side main. Ab inka ilaaj, apne ko karna hai. Inko maarna hai bas.
However, according to a few users who flagged his video, initially Instagram had stated that the content “doesn’t violate Instagram’s community standards”.
Why do people like this still have access to social media? Why is nothing legally being done to these who instigate? Who gives them the power to get away with words? Why is there no action being taken? https://t.co/g3EQNteUi6— Kubbra Sait (@KubbraSait) August 18, 2020

Vikas Fhatak aka Hindustani bhau has neither “Hindustani” traits nor would I call such uneducated filth “BHAU”— Tisha Mishra🇮🇳 (@TishaMishra_) August 18, 2020
His thoughts are no better than Talibani or ISIS. ALL he deserves is jail cell. He has no place in any well cultured or well mannered society.#Bhau #hindustanibhau pic.twitter.com/bPbYF2O9DC
This man #hindustanibhau has a verified account on Instagram and he has the job to give open call to violence. He do so in his every video. This can create mob and result danger. For all of this he was the part of #BiggBoss last year.@AnilDeshmukhNCP @MumbaiPolice https://t.co/oCXd6ajxSe— Furquan Khan (@furquan28) August 19, 2020
Konsa bagwan hinsa karna sikhata hain . Yeh log Hindu dharam ka matlab nahin jaante.— Seema Gehlot (@GehlotSeema) August 18, 2020
I’m pretty sure there’s some political backing since he claims to be the guardian of the nation. A few weeks back he’e come out with a video where he said he won’t make any more videos, but he came after a week with a way more abusively threatening one.— Ashit Sharma (@Ashit_AS) August 18, 2020
People follow him blindly.
It took less than 1 minute to review the account 😔https://t.co/ZsBgZt7hRt— Ashish (@ash_7ish) August 18, 2020
