New Delhi: After print and media channels in India, now social media platforms have also been banned by the Modi government.
Modi government has banned social media after news channels, seeing its growing global unpopularity. There is a serious concern in the world over the continuous decline in press freedom and human rights violations in India.
Last year, BBC offices were also raided for airing a documentary against Modi. In 2020 too, Amnesty International stopped working in India due to severe government pressure.
According to the World Press Freedom Index, India is ranked 150th and is continuously declining.
Despite this, the Modi government showed boldness and banned Twitter. In this regard, the former CEO of Twitter, Jack Dorsey, has made eye-catching revelations.
Jack Dorsey said the Modi government continued to try to blackout Twitter and stifle critical journalists during ‘nationwide farmers’ protests.
The former CEO of Twitter further said that if the illegal and illegitimate demands of the Modi government were not accepted, then serious consequences would have been threatened. Service shutdowns, offices and employees’ homes were raided.
