Both the Indian people’s Party (BJP) led by Prime Minister modi and the opposition major party are dissatisfied with Facebook’s “biased censorship system”.
it is reported that Janata, a member of the Indian party, recently criticized Facebook for deliberately suppressing and censoring the voice of the people’s Party (PPP) and the argument that it has Indian nationalist tendencies. In addition to criticizing that Facebook has become a “left leaning Congress platform”, rasol, another member of the Indian party, wrote an article in the Indian Express. Besides criticizing that Facebook has become a “platform for the left leaning Congress party”, he also vigorously refutes rumors and refutes the claim that Facebook is replacing modi platform. “We can see from many examples that Facebook’s current and former executives have a lot to do with the former government and the current opposition parties, and some of them have publicly criticized Modi,” rasol said. It’s ridiculous to say that Facebook supports the Hindu party. ”
this series of attacks by Indian party and government guests in recent days originated from a report in the Wall Street Journal last Friday. The report disclosed Facebook’s internal process for handling hate speech, saying Facebook employees believed that a post by an Indian party politician and three Hindu nationalists was suspected of inciting violence and hatred, but Facebook India’s public policy executive objected to its ban on Facebook’s policy of dealing with hate speech. The executive also told employees that, for example, to the Indian led by modi The punitive measures taken by Party politicians “will damage Facebook’s business prospects in India.”. According to the Indian Express on the 17th, the executive claimed to have received death threats from the Internet and reported the case to the New Delhi police.
after the introduction of the Wall Street Journal report, many media interpreted it as Facebook supporting the Indian party. On Sunday, the Congress Party issued a twitter statement saying that the Indian party manipulated Indian nationals through Facebook and Facebook’s WhatsApp. Congress congressman Rahul Gandhi tweeted: “it was the US media who finally told the truth about Facebook that they manipulated the election by spreading false news and hate speech.”
