The country’s security agencies have identified 11,178 Twitter handles as pro-Khalistan, pro-Pakistan and foreign-run. On February 4, the government asked Twitter to remove these handles.

On February 4, 2021, the Union Ministry of Information and Broadcasting shared a list of 1178 Twitter accounts with the microblogging site company Twitter. The accounts were identified by security agencies as pro-Khalistan, pro-Pakistan and foreign-run handles. The government asked Twitter to remove the handles. Official sources have given information about this. It was feared that these handles were working to maintain social and law and order in India behind the peasant movement. The government said many of these accounts were automated bots that quickly spread misleading and inflammatory elements related to the movement. However, sources said that Twitter has not yet complied with the order.

Let me tell you that on January 31, 2021, the ministry sent a link to 257 Twitter accounts on Twitter and asked them to block it because they were making inflammatory tweets about the massacre of farmers. Twitter blocked these accounts, but they were unlocked a few hours later. In such a situation, when Twitter did not fully comply with the previous order, the government issued a new order and asked them to delete these 117878 accounts.
