Twitter locks OpIndia-Hindi for reporting stories of Hindu victims of Delhi riots, calls it ‘hateful conduct’

This is not the first time Twitter has tried to suppress voices of those from the right-wing ideology.

The curious case of micro-blogging site Twitter arbitrarily suspending nationalistic Twitter accounts continued once again as this time it has locked the account of ‘OpIndia-Hindi’ for reporting facts and exposing “liberal-secular” media’s dubious propaganda on Delhi anti-Hindu riots.

OpIndia Hindi Twitter account suspended over ‘hateful conduct’

On Sunday, OpIndia-Hindi had posted an investigative report on how Muslim mobs had carried out a meticulous plan a few days prior to the communal riots and had exposed the claim of the “liberal-secular” media who had propagated the false narrative of Muslims being the ‘victim’ despite being perpetrators of the crime in reality. In a report titled “महीनों से हिंदुओं पर हमले की योजना बना रही मुस्लिम भीड़ आख़िर पीड़ित कैसे? – 10 कहानियों से साफ होती तस्वीर“, OpIndia Hindi had talked about 10 Hindus who faced the ire of violent Muslim mob in the recent Delhi riots.

As per Twitter, writing about the fate of 10 Hindus who had to face the brunt in the Delhi anti-Hindu riots is ‘hateful conduct’. OpIndia had reported that these incidents of violence on Hindus were not ‘accidental’ but meticulously planned and executed. However, for Twitter, this amounts to ‘hateful conduct’.

Following the suspension of the account for 12 hours, Twitter has given a clarification claiming that the account had promoted violence or threatened other people on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, etc. However, the micro-blogging site did not provide any specific reason before arbitrarily suspending the account.

Not only that, the personal account of OpIndia Hindi Editor, Ajeet Bharti, has also been locked for 12 hours because of his tweet to ‘journalist’ Saba Naqvi.

This is not the first time Twitter has tried to suppress voices of those from the right-wing ideology. Earlier, a Twitter user who makes hilarious spoofs of Rahul Gandhi had also got his account permanently suspended by Twitter which made people wonder if it was due to his political ideology. Just a few weeks back, the account of Twitter user ‘“टीपूडा” whose username is @AmolDraws was suspended by the micro-blogging site after he had exposed the bias of an ultra-left wing cartoonist.

Social media users have been questioning the mysterious behaviour of Twitter which is often found censoring social media users for expressing their opinion. Last year, it had also banned Kashmiri Pandit activist Rohit Kachroo after he had exposed NDTV for trying to stage a debate showing that Kashmiri Pandits are unhappy with the abrogation of Article 370.
