These are screenshots of a few ‘utterly disturbing’ subreddits that I found on Reddit.

There’s this subreddit called “muslimahs for hindu men”
As vile as the name sounds, the subreddit contains extremely disgusting content targeting Muslim women. #BulliBai #SulliDeals ImageImageImageImage
In these kind of subreddits, they openly post vulgar stuff about muslim women and children, talk about their mass rape and how they should be pushed into sex slavery in their ‘new hindurashtra’ #BulliDeals #BulliBaiApp #trads #tekfog #mumbaipolice ImageImage
The saddest part is that this sub reddit has a following of about 15 thousand people and this one is the one that wasn’t de-activated #BulliDeals #SulliDeals #mumbaipolice
