Two senior BJP leaders were left with embarrassment after they set Twitter buzz with criticism by “wishing happiness” on the occasion of Good Friday, a day observed to commemorate the crucifixion of Jesus Christ.

BJP leader Shahnawaz Hussain tweeted, “Warm Greetings on #GoodFriday to all of you!”. He later deleted his tweet but there were reactions.
