Police complaint filed against Twitter India MD for suspending True Indology

A Madhya Pradesh based man has reached out to police to file a complaint against Twitter India managing director for suspending popular Twitter handle ‘True Indology.’

In his complaint, the person also demanded that the Twitter account be restored, the official said.

The complainant, Shrikant Sharma, claimed that Twitter arbitrarily blocked the TrueIndology handle, which he said takes forward the Hindu culture. “This is an attack on freeedom of expression,” he added.

“The Twitter handle was shut by Twitter India MD Manish Maheshwari after the social media platform termed the Diwali-related content posted there as false,” he said.

“The complaint seeks that the Twitter India MD be booked for allegedly deleting the account,” said Kotwali police station in-charge Virendra Jha.

True Indology was suspended after it engaged in an altercation with IPS officer D Roopa Moudgill over the subject of firecracker bursting tradition during Diwali.
