#BlackLivesMatter for Twittter, but #KashmiriHinduLivesMatter… ?

Today #KashmiriHinduLivesMatter hash tag was trending in first 20 India top trend with 10K plus tweets. However, clicking on the hash tag twitter shows “No results for #KashmiriHinduLivesMatter”.

20th June is commemorated as World Refugee Day. In our country Kashmiri Hindus, were forced to leave their Homeland in 1989-90 due to Jihadi terrorism. 30 years on these Kashmiri Hindus can’t go back to their homes, nor are the Kashmiri Hindus living in Kashmir safe. And today when Hindus are raising their voices for the persecuted Kashmiri Hindus using #KashmiriHinduLivesMatter, Twitter has blocked all the tweets posted using this hashtag and suppressed the voices of Hindus. On clicking on the hash tag Twitter shows message “No results for #KashmiriHinduLivesMatter”.

While Jack Dorsey and his Twitter team has been quite proactive in showing their support for persecuted communities like the Blacks, the Indigenous people, the LGBTQA movement, they seem to feel that the persecuted Kashmiri Hindus do not deserve the same courtesy.

By denying visibility to Hindu issues on their platform, Twitter seems to be eager to prove that the oft repeated allegations that they are left-oriented and actively suppress any opinion that is contrary to what they believe in.  While we hope that this is a temporary software glitch, Twitter needs to introspect whether their unwritten policy of one-sided policing of issues needs to be revisited.
