New Delhi- A massive scandal has erupted in the social media world as Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) spokesperson Amit Malviya revealed shocking truths about Twitter’s violation of Indian laws between the years 2020-22. In a press briefing, Malviya alleged that Twitter had persistently ignored Indian laws and even showed bias towards certain political parties.
Malviya claimed that despite repeated warnings and requests to comply with Indian laws, Twitter continued to violate them, leading to the suspension of hundreds of Twitter accounts. He accused the social media giant of displaying double standards and indulging in political censorship.
Additional evidence was presented to prove Twitter’s violation of Indian laws. Malviya disclosed that Twitter had been asked to remove certain accounts and tweets containing inflammatory content that could incite violence, but the social media giant failed to do so.
The disclosure has led to widespread outrage amongst both political circles and the general public. Many have accused Twitter of interfering with India’s sovereignty and indulging in anti-India propaganda.
Amit Malviya has called for immediate action against Twitter and has appealed to the government to take strict measures against the social media giant. “Twitter cannot be allowed to break India’s laws and get away with it. They must be held accountable for their actions,” he added.
The controversy has reignited the debate over social media regulations in India. There have been increasing calls for greater regulation and control over social media companies operating in the country.
The government has yet to issue an official statement on the revelations made by Amit Malviya. However, it is expected that Twitter will face intense scrutiny and could potentially face severe measures if found guilty of violating Indian laws.
