Twitter used as base to crush the Voice of dissent, Saket Gokhale tweet said to be ‘violation against Indian law’
Twitter informed Saket on receiving a request from Indian law enforcement, he took this opportunity to question back the government.
When PM of India Shri Narendra Modi expressed his plan for ‘Digital India’, he anticipated the country to work on a cashless economy, online infrastructures, tech-savvy youth, Saket Gokhale, etc. Little did we understood his motive and remodel the crime and investigation course to be Social Media based.
Saket Gokhale, a social activist has received a warning from Twitter on a complaint by Indian Law Enforcement calling one of his tweet to be ‘violation of Law of India.’ The tweet openly talk about out how the current government scapegoating the minorities.
He took this complaint as an opportunity for what he is master at, throwing the question back again at Union Home minister about what is’ violation’ in this tweet. For the more he added addressing the home minister Amit Shah if this is how “he is going to sneakily muzzle people?” , Adding a mocking remark “kagaz dikhaiye Amit ji”
Now imma gonna file an RTI with the Home Ministry & ask for a copy of the correspondence they sent to Twitter & the grounds they’ve quoted to remove this tweet.
Amit Shah ji – kaagaz dikhaaiye 😊

People like Saket is the need of the hour who are continuously fighting against the system for consistently being shallow about the real crimes happening on ground including lynching, rapes, harassments, abuses and what not. This is giving hope and showing the way to fight back, to those who are oppressed for having a voice.
