Why India’s first diplomat was a troll
India’s next diplomat, a political commentator and social activist named Kailash Bhatti, has been accused of posting racist, sexist and anti-Muslim posts on Twitter.
Bhatti is the first Indian diplomat to be caught using a racist slur.
Bhati has been on Twitter for over a decade, first in 2007 and then in 2014, when the Indian government ordered him to be banned from the platform.
The ban was upheld by the Supreme Court.
Bhandi is not the first diplomat to face a backlash for using a slur on Twitter, and the first to be removed from the site after being flagged for offensive language.
But the timing of Bhandi’s expulsion has raised questions about the social media platform’s policies against abuse.
Bhandis suspension comes amid a wave of criticism about the countrys Twitter crackdown.
The social media platforms are not supposed to censor offensive speech, but they have been accused in the past of policing speech and silencing speech.
Twitter has not responded to the allegations, but the government has been quick to distance itself from its ban on the social networking platform.
Bhavish Aggarwal, India’s chief social media officer, has faced criticism in the country for his decision to ban Bhandits posts.
Aggarwat told the Hindustan Times that Bhandit was removed for “insensitive tweets” about “national security and foreign policy.”
In the last few weeks, the Indian Government has been under increasing pressure from citizens who are concerned about the use of the internet and social media by the government and are seeking the deletion of posts on the platforms.
In August, the Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, also faced criticism for the “insensitivity” of his decision, which resulted in his dismissal from Twitter.
The Indian government has yet to explain the reasons for the ban on Bhanditys tweets.
He was also one of the first politicians to be suspended by the Indian President.
The ban comes as a growing number of Indians have been forced to leave Twitter, with many of the company’s Indian users reporting problems logging in to their accounts.
In September, Bhattit tweeted a picture of himself with a gun.
The caption read: “Shoot me if you have to, I don’t want to be a victim of gun violence, I am a patriot.”
He later tweeted: “If you are a patriot and want to shoot me, you better get me out of the country.
