Jodhpur court orders filing of FIR against Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey

Twitter India had tried to pass it off as their effort to understand all sides of important public conversations.

A Jodhpur court ordered the filing of an FIR against Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey in a defamation case. The court passed the order during the hearing of the case today.

A petition was filed in a local court in Jodhpur on Nov 22 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’.


Jack holding the poster with negative and derogatory comments about a caste had infuriated people. While no clarification came from the Twitter CEO, the Twitter India tried to pass it off as their effort to understand all sides of important public conversations. Twitter India’s Legal, Policy and Trust & Safety Lead, Vijaya Gadde, has also apologised to people for hurting the sentiments.

However, the clarifications of Twitter India were refuted by Sanghapali Aruna who claims to be a Dalit activist and the founder of Project Mukti. She said that the poster that she gifted to Jack Dorsey was questioning precisely the “hegemony and the concentration of power n the hands of one community”.
