Twitter suspends account of ‘Stories of Bengali Hindus’ for sharing ignored stories of the trauma faced by persecuted Bengali Hindus

The social media giant Twitter, known for its leftist bias, has suspended another non-left account on their platform, citing “violating rules against ban evasion” as the reason. The latest popular non-left account to be suspended is @storiesofBHs, the account of the website Stories of Bengali Hindus. The founder of the website, Dr Sandeep Das, shared the information through his personal Twitter account.

Dr Das wrote that they received an email from Twitter stating that we were suspended in view of “ban evasion”. He asked the microblogging site to provide more explanation for the suspension. Interestingly, while Twitter said that it had suspended the account in view of “ban evasion”, it provided no explanation as to which ban had the account exactly evaded.

Das said that this is the first time the account has been suspended, it was never suspended in the part, therefore it is not clear how the account violated norms by evading a ban.

In his subsequent Tweet, Das wrote: “@storiesofBHs had been a place where Bengali Hindus from East Bengal spread across the world could come together and share their stories of intergenerational/transgenerational trauma which were untold and ignored. @Twitter has, through this, put down our voices and stories.”

He also informed that ‘Stories of Hindu Bengalis’ are considering all options as of now, He urged everyone to rally support for them.
