Sadhguru slams Twitter for suspending Iskcon Bangladesh’s handle

Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev chastised Twitter for suspending the account of Iskcon Bangladesh in the aftermath of the spate of attacks on Hindus

Isha Foundation head Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev has called out microblogging site Twitter for suspending the accounts of Iskcon’s Bangladesh unit amid a spate of violence against the minority in Bangladesh.

“Protect the perpetrators, punish the victims. Is this Twitter’s sense of evenhandedness and fairness. Atrocious,” Sadhguru said in a tweet on 20 October.

On 19 October, had tweeted that the account of Iskcon’s Bangladesh chapter had been removed from Twitter. Another account, Bangladesh Unity Council, was taken down too.

“Twitter needs to explain why have they shut down @IskconBDH and @unitycouncilBD amidst the brutal attacks. Is this pressure from Bangladesh government or @Twitter? Why are voices are being silenced in the midst of an emergency,” said Yudhistir Govinda Das, Director of Communications for Iskcon India, in a tweet.

Islamists have intensified attacks on the minority and their places of worship in Bangladesh since last Wednesday. At least 20 homes of Hindus were torched in the Rangpur district on Sunday over an alleged blasphemous social media post.

Muslim mobs lynched three Hindus in an attack on a Puja pandal near Nanuar Dighi lake in Bangladesh’s Cumilla. Incidents of vandalism were reported from temples in Chandpur’s Hajiganj, Chattogram’s Banshkhali, Pekua in Cox’s Bazar and an Iskcon temple in Noakhali.

Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina also gave a stern warning to those trying to disturb harmony in the country, promising action will be taken against the perpetrators of the communal violence in Cumilla.

On 17 October, the Bangladeshi diaspora organised a protest in front of the Embassy of that country here to protest large-scale violence leading to the destruction of Hindu homes and temples during Puja festivities across Bangladesh.

The Bajrang Dal member condemned the incident where radical Islamists brutally raped an entire family including a 10-year-old girl in Hajiganj Upazila in Chandpur district in the Chittagong Division of Bangladesh. A secular blogger Azam Khan had narrated the indent in one of his Facebook posts yesterday.

Facebook, as most social mediums do these days, promptly removed Azam Khan’s posts, based on the words of bogus fact-checkers.

Some Bangladeshi news websites had, on the basis of the word of the local police, reported that no such incident had taken place. Police Station Officer-in-Charge Harunur Rashid said that no one had filed any complaint of rape and that the news of rape is a rumour.

However, in an Islamic nation where Hindus are complaining that the police do not reach the troubled spots in time to rescue victims, the denial is hardly convincing, as stated by Sirf News columnist Dr Sauvik Raha in this article:


Sirf News needs to recruit journalists in large numbers to increase the volume of its reports and articles to at least 100 a day, which will make us mainstream, which is necessary to challenge the anti-India discourse by established media houses.
