The arrest of AltNews co-founder Mohammed Zubair is a campaign by network of anonymous and inauthentic accounts linked to Vikash Ahir, state chairman of Hindu Yuva Vahini (HYV) and co-coordinator of Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM) in Gujarat, according to an investigation by The Wire.
The Delhi police filed acase against Zubair and recorded his arrest. The arrest has been registered by the special cell station IFSO (Intelligence Fusion and Strategic Operations) of the Delhi Police, which deals with cyber crimes, including those against women and children. TNM has learned that you have been arrested under section 153 (deliberate provocation with the intent to cause a disturbance) and section 295A (deliberate and malicious acts, intended to outrage religious feelings of any kind by insulting your religion or religious beliefs).
Delhi Police said the case was based on a Twitter complaint from a user with the username @balajikijaiin who calls himself Hanuman Bhakt. The handle countered a tweet posted by Zubair in 2018, which showed an image of a hotel sign repainted from “Honeymoon Hotel” to “Hanuman Hotel.”
The arrest followed a complaint tweet from an anonymous account with the username @balajikijaiin, which flagged a 2018 tweet by Zubair that included a photograph of a hotel sign on which the word “honeymoon”, was written in Hindi. to Hanuman. The whistleblower, who said the photo hurt his religious feelings, may or may not have known it was a screenshot of a scene from a four-decade-old movie, ‘Kissi Se Na Kehna,’ made in 1983.
Vikash Ahir is from Gujarat and, according to his website, he is the state chairman of Hindu Yuva Vahini, a militant organization founded by Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and city coordinator of the student wing of Bhartiya Janata Yuva Morcha, the youth front. of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). The fingerprint of him connecting with the BJP dates back at least four years, during which his loyalty to the party was matched by consistently anti-Muslim sentiments expressed on his social media channels, which are far-reaching.
Vikash Ahir has a network of 757 accounts linked to him that has “attempted, since 2018, to frame the fact-checker along with Pratik Sinha, co-founder of AltNews, by highlighting and misrepresenting old tweets uploaded by the two journalists to portray them as ‘Hinduphobic’ and then labelling the local authorities to arrest them.”

According to The Wire’s report, when they decided to use the email id email@example.com to ask Twitter to reassign a password, the goal was not to gain access to the account but to move to the second step in the verification process, where Twitter reiterates the precise email id associated with the account to send the password change email. In case you enter the wrong email, Twitter displays a screen saying the attempt was ‘Bad’ and asks you to try again.
