Recently, Som was even on a debate with Bhupendra Chaubey and Asaduddin Owaisi on CNN News channel. They were discussing the same matter, but Som was being critized for making such a statement.
However, one politically aware Hindu, Sonam Mahajan, has supported Som on Twitter. She said,” Full marks to Sangeet Som for standing his ground. He has every right to speak his mind, who the hell are Owaisis!”
