Anti-Hindu Twitter is taking advantage of the Indian judiciary’s constant delays to keep one of the most informative and knowledge-imparting handles True Indology (TI) away from the platform. TI has been repeatedly targeted for suspension on twitter, including by senior officials miffed at the handle’s busting of their erroneous views.
Tired of the arbitrariness and opacity of the Twitter appeal process, on Jan 23, 2022, True Indology sued Twitter for wrongful suspension. Ever since, Twitter has managed to secure multiple adjournments from our courts.
If you had to pick one social media voice that has rattled the whole of the left-liberal anti-Hindu establishment, many would choose TrueIndology. The deep expertise in history, ability to dig out little-known facts in real-time, and busting of several myths propagated for decades by ’eminent historians’ has made this handle indispensable for the thinking Hindu. Not surprisingly, TI has been on the anti-Hindu gang’s hit list for some time now, including on American social media platforms like Twitter which have a pronounced liberal bias.
The handle owner highlighted how his account was being manipulated and death threats received by him. “Two days ago, I reactivated my handle as I had been told that it would permanently be lost in the event of not reactivating within 30 days… But Twitter makes it clear on its policies forum that it should not take more than 48 hours. At the time of writing this post, it has been more than 60 hours since I reactivated my handle. But there is more. Twitter does not allow anyone to follow me. If any account follows me, it will automatically be unfollowed on a simple page refresh”, TI had written.
Twitter hounded True Indology for sharing inconvenient truths. He was also bullied by ex-Mizoram governor Swaraj Kaushal, husband of former External Affairs Minister Late Sushma Swaraj, last July when highlighted facts regarding Mizo history from his new account Bharadwaj Speaks.
If precedence is anything to go by, then the microblogging site is known to silence pro-Hindu and pro-Bharat voices. In December last year, Journalist Aarti Tikoo’s account was blocked after she tweeted that her brother’s life was being threatened by jihadi terrorists sitting in Kashmir and their handlers in Pakistan, the UK, and the US.
In February this year, The Kashmir Files director Vivek Agnihotri’s handle was suspended. The director never has minced words when it comes to revealing the true face of Urban Naxals. Another handle fighting against the social media giant is Wokeflix, a group that engages in political satire. Wokeflix approached the court after Twitter permanently suspended it and Instagram suspended it temporarily.
Wokeflix has stated that content posted by it is focused on political satire and funny memes and challenged both the social media giants’ decisions on the premise that its handle is primarily “viewed/ followed by the general public for its expression/ views and free speech on different topics and issues.”
The social media platform has repeatedly been suppressing Hindu voices. It is probably the hard-hitting facts brought out by these voices that scare those controlling the platform. Earlier, Twitter and FB manipulation was restricted to shadow banning influential RW/Hindu accounts, sudden suspensions of accounts, and prioritizing complaints by left-liberals over those by Hindus. But now their liberal bias is coming out in the open. A significant section of the judiciary being anti-Hindu and in the grip of Hinduphobic forces only just add to the woes of the ‘majority’ population.
Twitter stands exposed. Their anti-Hindu attitude will prove them costly.
