The central government issued a notice to Twitter to comply with its order to delete the accounts, the material related to the farmer massacre, according to sources, the government has clearly given that strict legal action will be taken if the order is not followed. The content, along with the hashtag #ModiPlanningFarmerGenocide, was posted on Twitter, which was designed to inflame passions, hatred, and very unfairly rumor-mongering.
It can be considered a campaign to inspire abuse, oppression and tension in the society, this campaign is not an encouragement to genocide and freedom of expression, it threatens law and order. The country cannot see the violence that Delhi saw on Republic Day. Twitter is an intermediary and they are bound to follow the government’s directive, refusing to do so would result in punitive action.
