  1. Online mobs spreading hate should not be allowed to continue their work with impunity.

    Purveyors of hate, misogyny and xenophobia have been on a boundless revelry in India, online and offline, with near total impunity and often times with support from politicians and the police.

    It is indeed baffling that the Delhi Police threw their hands up when faced with the challenge of identifying some random imposters on social media. Such a level of incompetence or connivance is ominous.

    In November, Union IT Minister said that the Ministry was working on “identifying the gaps in current legislation to address contemporary issues of cyberspace including provisions to protect citizens, especially women, from any online harassment and cyber bullying”.

    While that is necessary, it cannot be an excuse to let online mobs roam free. The police must identify and arrest the original culprits, but if that process takes months on end, there have to be interim measures to enforce the rule of law.

  2. I strongly object to such applications. But unfortunately your hatred towards Hindus is blinding you. This is well known that this app is owned by a Sikh community. Kindly correct your article and don’t spread incorrect information
