There is tight security at Suchitra Krishnamoorthy’s residence, where she lives with her daughter, after Suchitra was trolled, abused and threatened. There were bullies desirous of causing Suchitra bodily harm after she protested against the early-morning prayers on loudspeakers.

Adding to her problems are health issues. Suchitra is now in the hospital with an attack of dengue fever but the good news is that she is recovering well. She says,  “I am in Nanavati Hospital (Mumbai) with dengue. I had to postpone the release of Kaveri’s song because of this.”

As far as her security after the azaan controversy is concerned, Suchitra says, “The cops were talking to me every day and members from my building too provided security. But I didn’t even know I was under threat until the cops informed me. They have been exemplary.” Reacting to the ugly trolls Suchitra says, “It is a very misogynistic land.”
