The World Sikh Organisation (WSO) of Canada has released a report on the crackdown on Sikh social media by Indian authorities. The report entitled “Enforcing Silence: India’s War on Sikh Social Media” examines recent developments and offers suggestions to social media platforms with respect to Sikh content.
The report refers to registration of various cases under draconian UAPA law against Sikh youth over their social media posts and also refers to blocking of Sikh media networks over internet in Punjab and India.
WSO President Tejinder Singh Sidhu said: “India is attempting to silence dissenting voices and censor Sikh social media content. This is unacceptable. WSO’s report, Enforcing Silence: India’s War on Sikh Social Media examines the recent targeting and detention of Sikh youth based on social media activity. We have outlined some suggestions for social media platforms in addressing this issue and we will continue to engage in dialogue with them so that Sikh interests are protected. We will be sharing this report with social media stakeholders and we encourage community members to also review it in order to be familiar with what is a growing issue of concern.”
