While the Indian Government is vitually stuck with multitude problems and is being blamed for policy-paralysis, they opened a pandora-box by their suggestion to social media companies to prescreen content and indicating their possible plan for censoring social media content. Then the retaliation was ruthless. The phrase #IdiotKapilSibal was one of the most tweeted on Tuesday. The democratic response was quick enough to force the Government to clarify its position.
Government blames it on groups with ill-intention targetting specific religions and political leaders. These groups and religious fanatics spread rumours and create hateredness. Citing threats to national security, Mr. Kapil Sibal had remarked about ways for content moderation on social media. But upon large-scale onslaught against any censorship, the Government clarified and seemed to show the sign of withdrawal.
