Anti-Hindu bias and Twitter

Anti-Hinduism is a negative perception or religious intolerance against the practice and practitioners of Hinduism.

Twitter has permanently banned accounts like True Indology on its platform, and Twitter has censored and silenced many other accounts. @trueindology’s account was blocked for uploading a quote taken from a book published by the Indian Council of Historical Research.

Other censorship examples are the recent bannings of accounts — such as of famed actress Kangana Ranaut — and declaring BJP leaders’ tweets as ‘manipulated media’. The account of milk cooperative Amul was blocked by Twitter for uploading two beautiful and strong banners — one showing the famous Amul girl standing up to Chinese military aggression.

This could be a case where Western companies go into an Asian (or Latin American or African) country, become the de facto platform for speech, then start censoring the people they disagree with in order to change the political order. Regime change is a political tactic used in the past decades in Latin America, Libya, and elsewhere. This is the opposite of freedom of speech. It is allowing a foreign entity to censor your public conversation as in the British Raj.
