Smashing Brahminical patriarchy to quashing FIR: Jack Dorsey says he held placard without understanding meaning

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”.

Twitter chief Jack Dorsey has moved the Rajasthan High Court for getting the FIR filed against him for holding a placard which read ‘smash Brahminical patriarchy’ quashed. Dorsey had stirred up controversy after he held up a placard which read the said message during his closed door meeting during his maiden trip to India. The Rajasthan High Court has stayed the arrest of Dorsey

The Jodhpur Court had earlier this month ordered filing of an FIR against him in a defamation case on basis of a petition filed by Vice President of Vipra Foundation’s youth wing, Rajkumar Sharma.

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.
