Humans of Hindutva Facebook page: deactivated or suspended?

The hateful anti-Hindu Facebook page masquerading as a ‘parody’ account, has been removed by Facebook for violating community guidelines. Some of the posts on this page reeked of hate under the guise of satire.

However, the admin of the page, who chooses to remain anonymous, is claiming that he deactivated on his own accord as he ‘fears for his life’ and ‘does not want to end up like Gauri Lankesh or Afrazul Khan’.

Screengrab of ‘satyanash.com’, the website run by the admins of Facebook page “Humans of Hindutva”.

This is not the first time the admins of this Facebook page, which is described as ‘satire on right-wingers and Hindu fundamentalists’ by left-leaning mainstream media, has pulled this stunt earlier when journalist Gauri Lankesh was killed outside her Bengaluru home in September this year. The admin had then said that he does not want to be killed like Lankesh even then.

Many also claimed to have talked to this admin who said he is getting death threats and he fears for his wife and children.

However, there seems to be a twist in the tale as it seems Facebook removed the page since the hate page was violating community guidelines. Many users who had mass reported the page for hate speech, claimed to have received an update from Facebook stating that the Humans of Hindutva page they had reported was found violating community guidelines and hence it has been removed.

Perhaps one of the self proclaimed hoax busting websites would like to come forward and get to the bottom of this mystery.
