Facebook in India must stop bigotry and hate speech postsFacebook has been summoned by the Parliamentary committee to explain how the company regulates the content after a controversy erupted in the country. The controversy started when wall street journal reported that Facebook opposed applying hate speech rules to a legislator.
Hate speeches are creating a rift and destroying peace and stability in the country. And if such contempt and bitterness are being spread by social media, it will have far more serious consequences as it is easily accessible to millions of people in the country. When Facebook has the largest market in India, any bigotry or hate speech spreads like a wild spark.
It is the responsibility of Facebook's managing director to review and remove content if it violates the community standards, and help in maintaining tranquillity in the country rather than supporting bigotry and contempt of innocent people.
