On government’s request Twitter withholds columnist Werleman’s account

An official said the account has been withheld following a request from the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting for comments spreading "anti-India propaganda".

Werleman said his account has been withheld in India because of demands made by the "far-right, Hindu fascist regime of Narendra Modi".

The Kalinga Rights Forum, which describes itself as a legal activism group for national interest, claimed that the Centre had acted on its complaints against Werleman's "anti-India propaganda".
