#Facebook_Targets_HJS as Hindus protest Facebook’s attempts to supress HJS

Social media has given the Hindus their lost voice. However, it has been noticed that over the last few months, Facebook has been steadily going after the Hindus to try and stifle them. A few months ago, Facebook had arbitrarily deleted the pages and profiles of various Hindu organizations and Hindu leaders, including that of Sanatan Sanstha, Sanatan Prabhat, Sudarshan TV, Suresh Chavanke, BJP MP T Rajasingh and Sanatan Shop. Now Facebook has targeted and shut down the pages of Hindu Janajagruti Samiti, which were used to inform and educate people on matters related to the nation and Dharma. Facebook continues to allow pages related to Dr Zakir Naik, PFI and Azad Maidan riot accused Raza Academy to function freely, while curbing those pages speaking up for Hindu rights.

To oppose double standards of Facebook, devout Hindus took to Twitter with hashtag #Facebook_Targets_HJS. More than 70,000 tweets were tweeted by Hindus in just a matter of few hours and the hashtag became one of the top 10 national trends on Twitter in India. The trend was at 3rd spot for around 2 hours and was trending in top 10 for several hours. Many Hindus also protested against Facebook with ##Facebook_Suppress_Hindu_Voices.

Here are some of the tweets from the trend :
