Jodhpur court admits plea against Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey over anti-Brahmin placard

Sanghapali Aruna, the founder of Project Mukti, who had presented the bizarre poster to Dorsey had rejected the clarifications issued by the Twitter and had asserted that the poster which had presented to Jack Dorsey was precisely about the Caste issue.

A local court in Jodhpur, Rajasthan on Thursday admitted a petition against Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey over the anti-Brahmin post shared by him on the Twitter which had resulted in massive uproar in the country, reported Live Law.

According to the reports, the petition was filed by Vice President of Vipra Foundation’s youth wing, Rajkumar Sharma, over a controversial photo shared by Dorsey in which he posed with some women journalists holding a placard reading ‘Smash Brahminical Patriarchy’.

HM Saraswat, counsel for the petitioners said that Metropolitan Judge Rachan Bissa has admitted the petition and listed the matter for hearing on December 1. Sharma further added that the post was anti-Brahmin and used coarse language, which was humiliating and thus, intolerable for the community.

HR Saraswat has reportedly said that the petition has been filed under various sections of the Indian Penal Code, including 295A (deliberate and malicious acts, intended to outrage religious feelings), 500 (defamation) and 120B (criminal conspiracy).

“He (Dorsey) has committed the crime of triggering hatred for a community and we would proceed against him in the court,” he added.

Meanwhile, Rajkumar Sharma has said that even though Twitter has issued an apology against its statements but Jack Dorsey has not issued an apology pertaining to the issue. Even if he apologises, it would not mitigate his crime, he added.

Jack Dorsey, CEO of Twitter, during his visit to India, became a part of a bizarre incident after he endorsed a far-left Hinduphobic slogan by holding a placard that said “Smash Brahminical Patriarchy”. This had caused a huge furor in the country after several people accused the Twitter CEO of promoting caste divide and attempting to incite people by showing its hatred towards one particular community.

After a massive outcry over the social media, Twitter had issued a statement regarding the shocking incident of Brahmin bashing and had to apologize to people profusely for hurting the sentiments. Twitter had also issued a statement regarding its CEO posing for a photo with a placard claiming that it was not a statement from their CEO but merely a reflection that they hear from all sides.

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 had asserted that the poster which had presented to Jack Dorsey was precisely about the Caste issue rather than rhetorical.
