According to top official sources, social media platforms such as Twitter, Facebook and others, which were required to abide by the rules notified in the gazette of India on February 25 under Intermediary Guidelines and Digital Media Ethics Code Rules, 2021, have failed to comply on many accounts till date.

The government’s rules will come into effect from May 26.

“If social media companies do not obey the rules, they may lose their status and protections as intermediaries and may become liable for criminal action as per the existing laws of India,” top official sources said.

Except one Indian social media company, Koo, sources said that none of the top social media intermediaries have appointed a resident grievance officer, a chief compliance officer and a nodal contact person yet.

Sources said the failure of social media companies to make these appointments in three months has not gone down well with the government.

With arbitrary suspensions of accounts and inaction over abuses and bigotry on social media platforms, users in India have been persistently complaining against tech giants like Twitter, Facebook and others.

In the latest alleged Congress toolkit controversy, Delhi Police visited Twitter India’s local offices in the National Capital Region on Monday after Twitter had marked one of the tweets of BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra as “manipulated media”.

Twitter’s presumptive judgement has triggered widespread outrage among Indian users across the country.

Sources said the social media platforms which were required to furnish monthly reports as to how many grievances were filed and settled, have failed to do so. Some of the platforms, sources said, have sought more time of up to six months for furnishing compliance.

For some platforms, sources said, the standard reply has been that they will await instructions from their company headquarters in the US, who in turn on their own will have an “expert assessment” to take a view.

The US-based social media platforms have grown huge, thanks to their massive user base and profitable revenues in democracies like India. However, none of the platforms have shown any inclination to comply with India’s domestic laws. Instead, social media platforms have refused to be transparent about their fact-checking mechanism and their criteria to label tweets.

This time we will take Pakistan occupied Kashmir (POK) back, Ravinder Raina

Published

By

BJP State President Ravinder Raina had an exclusive interview with JK Channel executive Mohinderjeet Singh. Raina spoke about the party on 24th June going to be attended by Mehbooba Mufti. He also slammed Pakistan and held it responsible for the dead Indians.

Q. Sir what would you say about Pakistan?

Pakistan is the reason for bloodshed in Jammu and Kashmir over the last 40 years. It has always wanted J&K to be a graveyard. I wonder why some Leaders mourn over terrorists’ deaths rather than raising voices for our innocent people. Terrorism has killed so many people of J&K and other parts of India.

Those leaders who support Pakistan in such things are the enemies of J&K’s public.

Q. This time will article 370 be back or POK will be back?

Pakistan occupied Kashmir (POK) will be back. We will take it back. Pakistan has illegally occupied some parts if Kashmir be it Muzaffarabad, Neelam valley or the rest of the places, we are going to get them back in India.

Talking about article 370, it has become history now. People dreaming of getting it back should take rest. These are dreams that will never get fulfilled.

Q. Many leaders who often speak in favour of Pakistan have been invited to the Party while other leaders haven’t been. Your take?

Registered Political parties have been invited to the party. I’m invited, Professor Bheem Singh and some Former Deputy Chief Ministers of BJP and Congress too. BJP will be the voice of Dogras, the Hindus on that day. BJP has always stood for its public and will continue doing so.

Q. Can Jammu people expect Ravinder Raina’s reply to Mehbooba Mufti in the coming event?

I think almost everyone living in Jammu knows me now. I’m the same person who gave back answers to the leaders supporting Pakistan in assembly meetings held before.
