Controversial poster Jack held was not ‘rhetorical’ but entirely about caste, confirms the person who gifted the poster

She confirms the fact that the whole poster saga with Jack Dorsey was an attempt to showcase the 'so-called' Brahmin dominance and what she refers to a 'caste apartheid' opposed to what Twitter claims to be a "reflection of our company's efforts to see, hear, and understand all sides".

The massive controversy over the ‘brain-fade’ moment of Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey where he had posed for a photo with a placard that declared “Smash Brahminical Patriarchy” has now taken a new turn. The person who had presented the placard claims that the provocative poster held by Jack Dorsey was entirely about ‘Caste issues’ as opposed to the clarification issued by the Twitter claiming to “understand all sides of important public conversations”.

After a massive outcry over the social media, Twitter had issued a statement regarding the shocking incident of “Brahmin bashing” and had claimed that it was not a statement from their CEO but merely a reflection that they hear from all sides. Vijaya Gadde, Twitter India’s Legal, Policy and Trust & Safety Lead, had apologized to people profusely for hurting the statements.

However, Sanghapali Aruna, claiming to be a Dalit activist and the founder of Project Mukti, who incidentally had presented the bizarre poster to Dorsey has rejected the clarifications issued by the Twitter and has now asserted that the poster which had presented to Jack Dorsey was precisely about the ‘Caste’ issue rather than any “rhetorical”.

Aruna, who claims that there exists a ‘Brahminical patriarchy’, which controls all of us in the country and the ‘Smash Brahminical patriarchy’ poster which she gifted was entirely related to questioning the hegemony and concentration of power in the hands of one community.

She went on to defend the bizarre incident by claiming that the posters were not at all an attempt to incite and show hatred against one community, but rather was an attempt to challenge the “dominance” and the “sense of superiority” of the Brahmins. She also went on to say that the apology rendered by the legal head of Twitter India, Vijaya Gadde was very disturbing.

Sanghapali Aruna went on to claim that it was a form of hate and trolling by ‘Right-wing Hindutva’ brigade referring to the people who questioned Jack Dorsey for his involvement in this shocking incident.

She confirms the fact that the whole poster saga with Jack Dorsey was an attempt to showcase the ‘so-called’ Brahmin dominance and what she refers to a ‘caste apartheid’ opposed to what Twitter claims to be a “reflection of our company’s efforts to see, hear, and understand all sides”.
