Popular YouTuber Gaurav Taneja, known as Flying Beast, was brutally trolled for relating 'havan' with 1984 Bhopal Gas Tragedy. A few days back, he tweeted a picture of himself performing 'havan' as a part of housewarming ritual with his wife Ritu Rathee and younger daughter. In his tweet, Gaurav wrote, "ग्रह प्रवेश पूजा Hinduism is a science based way of life. On 3 dec 1984 , two families remained unaffected from Bhopal gas leak. They performed regular अग्निहोत्र (हवन), which is a natural antidote to pollution."
Gaurav's tweet immediately went viral with thousands of people liking it and retweeting it. But his claims regarding Havan being a natural antidote to pollution did not go well with several people and many of them even shared their thoughts in the comments section. A Twitter user wrote, "Iit se hi ho na? Hinduism is great way of life. Completely agreed. Havan an antitode of pollution. Are you serious?"
