Intolerant about art: Is Congress stifling the voice of those mocking Rahul Gandhi?

When it comes to legacies, it might be well accepted that few of the things Congress President Rahul Gandhi will be remembered for would be his gaffes and his untended sense of humour. This has prompted various comedians and bloggers alike to create spoofs and mocking posts of Rahul Gandhi. The Congress party though now seemingly has decided to try and forcibly erase this legacy of Rahul.

As per a twitter user and TEDx contributor Vikas Pandey, the Congress party is trying hard to take down less than glorifying videos of their party President:

As per the image shared by Pandey, the “I Support Narendra Modi” YouTube channel had received a copyright take down notice, which was issued by Indian Nation Congress (INC) for their video titled, “Mil Gaya Rahul Gandhi Ke Pappu Hone Ka Saboot – Singapore Video Question & Answer Session”.

As a result of this notice, the video was rendered unplayable on YouTube. Owing to this act by Indian Nation Congress (INC), the channel also received “One copyright strike” and in case of such multiple notices, the channel might get pulled down by YouTube.

Also in what some might call a “peculiar coincidence”, the news of the twitter account of @NKDeewan getting suspended was also reported today:

Twitter user suspended

Deewan a witty twitter user incidentally had achieved quite a bit of online fame in the recent past by creating hilarious spoofs of Rahul Gandhi. His suspension provoked an outcry with people using the hashtag #bringbackdeewan to demand the restoration of his account:

This suspension incidentally comes after recent suspension of RW accounts for “technical” violation of terms such as suicide. Incidentally it might also be argued that when it comes to getting videos removed from YouTube, the Congress is taking a leaf out of Aam Aadmi Party’s (AAP) book, which is in line with what OpIndia has predicted.

The “persecution” of those mocking Rahul Gandhi incidentally also extends beyond social media. It was reported about a week how a Yakshagana (traditional folk skit) artist from Karnataka was suspended after he imitated Rahul Gandhi. The artist in a skit had mocked Rahul Gandhi’s pronunciation of “Ivanarva, Ivanarva. Iva Namva Iva Namva” at a campaign rally in the state.

The Kateel Durgaparameshwari Temple whose member the artist was, was forced to suspend him following a notice by Moodbidri Returning Officer V Prasanna, owing to the temple falling under Karnataka government’s endowment department.
