Twitter might get banned in India, due to ongoing Farmers protest


Earlier this week, Twitter restricted access to several popular accounts linked with the ongoing farmer protests in India, due to a “legal demand.” However, it restored the accounts in just 12 hours. India’s IT Ministry has now sent a notice to Twitter, asking the company to comply with its order to block content and accounts related to the protests.

The Indian government has expressed concern over “derogatory and factually incorrect tweets and hashtags” that circulated in the country this week. It has also said that these tweets and hashtags were “designed to spread hate.”

For the past 4 months, farmers in India are protesting over the controversial farming laws, passed. Farmer unions in the country says that the new laws are anti-farmer and corporate-friendly. Large corporate houses might drive them out of business if the new laws come into effect.
