After micro-blogging site, Twitter was flooded with tweets asking the concerned authorities to suspend her twitter account as she is spreading communal hatred, is when Babita took to twitter reverting on the criticism.

Telling about how she has always managed to fight for the country, Phogat said that “she will stand by her opinion which is absolutely fine as nothing wrong has been stated by her”, she said.
