The National Commission for Protection of Child Rights has written to social media giants, Facebook and Instagram, about violation of Indian laws on their platforms after Congress leader Rahul Gandhi shared posts on these platforms “revealing identity of victims” of the family of the nine-year-old Dalit rape and murder victim last week in Delhi.
This comes after Gandhi took to Instagram after Twitter blocked his official account. He posted a note on the platform with the caption “daro mat… satyameva jayate’ (don’t fear…truth alone triumphs). If showing compassion and empathy is a crime. I am guilty.”
