Historian and author of acclaimed books Ramachandra Guha said that he is receiving threats after he posted a photo of him in which he is eating beef.

Writing on Twitter on Sunday, Guha said he and his wife received threatening calls from a man alleged based in Delhi. Guha said the man in question claimed that he is Sanjay, a resident of Delhi.

“His number is +91-98351-38678. He threatened my wife as well as me. This is for the record,” Guha said.

In another post, Guha retweeted a post by one RK Yadav and said that he too is threatening him. Guha claimed that Yadav is a former RAW officer.

In his tweet, Yadav has called people to give a “befitting reply” to Guha for eating beef and “trying to tease whole of Hindus (sic)”.
