Union Minister V Muraleedharan, hailing from Kerala, criticized the cyber attacks on KS Chitra, questioning the Kerala police's apparent lack of intervention. He pointed out the selective outrage, emphasizing the need for tolerance across diverse expressions of faith. The minister remarked that while individuals can freely discuss the auspicious seasons of Ramzan or celebrate Christmas, Hindus should not face restrictions on expressing their views.

Opposition leader VT Satheesan of the Congress supported KS Chitra's right to express her opinion, condemning the cyber attacks as an act of fascism. Satheesan highlighted the importance of freedom of expression in a democratic society.
