WhatsApp-BJP nexus exposed: Rahul Gandhi again attacks Modi govt on Facebook hate speech row

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Saturday launched another attack on the Modi government by citing a report in the Time Magazine on Facebook and BJP’s links and the failure to curb hate speech on the social media platform.

In a tweet, Rahul Gandhi has said, “America's Time magazine exposes WhatsApp-BJP nexus: Used by 40 Cr Indians, WhatsApp also wants to be used for making payments for which Modi Govt's approval is needed. Thus, BJP has a hold over WhatsApp.”

The article in TIME Magazine talks of how Facebook has failed to check hate speech, including some comments by BJP leaders that violated their protocols on hate speech.
