Why this is important
Government is trying to showcase that they are trying to curb the rumors but action doesn't match the words as Government have blocked many URLs belonging to Indian right wing activism against corruption. Government also blocked the Twitter accounts of journalists and activists including Kanchan Gupta, Shiv Aroor, Pravin Togadia etc. The specific URLs also blocked which include the domains of Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, BlogSpot, WordPress, Google Plus, Wikipedia, Times of India, and other websites. The government also blocked the website of Hindu Janajagruti Samiti (HJS) which in fact had published an article to expose the rumors about Muslim killing in Myanmar. Instead of thanking HJS, government chooses to block the entire website which host lot of other spiritual articles. The government also blocked the website of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh which supports main opposition party BJP.
This is clear case of internet Censorship and government is trying to suppress the voice of patriotic citizens. Please sign this petition to appeal the government to protect the internet freedom by giving notice to the website owners to remove the contents. The global citizens should also join this fight of Indians.
