| The News Minute | March 11, 2015 | 1:10 p.m. IST | Users on Twitter form part of a polarised universe. No sooner had the #AdarshLiberal hashtag started trending, when #AdarshSanghi was crafted as the perfect riposte. The thread was started off by a chart with spin offs from the “Adarsh Balak” comic strips which mock the concept of the “ideal boy” in school.  The #AdarshLiberal trend which started it all mocks the hypocrisy of the “liberal” who, for example, supports PETA while gorging on non-vegetarian food. Its counter trend, #AdarshSanghi, plays with the fact that the “sanghi” has RSS affiliations and worships Narendra Modi. Pretty soon though, ‘liberals’ and ‘sanghis’ alike were engaging themselves in a Twitter war of sorts with memes and retorts flying back and forth.   So, here’s how it progressed:  Just in case you missed.

His shorts were fashionable in 1930s as Mussolini's Fascist Party uniform. — कांग्रेसवाला (@CongressForever) March 11, 2015 #AdarshSanghi is one who thinks whatsapp forwards are gospel truth.pic.twitter.com/sHtzCbC1u9 — Srivatsa (@srivatsayb) March 10, 2015 @Joydas #AdarshSanghi believes that 3rd Law of Motion (Action-Reaction) was discovered by LOLwalkar pic.twitter.com/8DWCWWBMHe — Nitin Chavan (@a20nitin) March 10, 2015 Soon, those tired of witnessing the so called ideological bashing resorted to bashing both parties.
