Look at the list of entities who access the vahan data. You have surveillance entities (Delhi Police, NATGRID, MHA, GSTN). Then you got capitalist entities ( loan & insurance firms ). This is how this ecosystem survives, through surveillance capitalism which feed into each other.

This week, all the big streaming services in India (Netflix, Hotstar + 15 others) gave the government their largest-yet compromise offer for self-regulation yet: a suggestion that all members' complaint appeal bodies should have at least as many external members as internal ones.

A friend of I just spoke to: "Her arrest is a scare tactic, saying, 'What will you do? You're just a kid.' Disha IS just a kid, but see the work she's been doing since 19! We're scared but the larger fight is against . Without farmers, there is no future"

Hello @CPBlr @DgpKarnataka these are the guidelines for interstate investigation and arrest. Did @DelhiPolice follow them ? Where are the documents? Was it translated ? Who were the independent witnesses? ನಮ್ಮ ರಾಜ್ಯವನ್ನು ದಿಲ್ಲಿಯ ಫುಲಾಮರಾಗಿ ಮಾಡಬೇಡಿ ಸ್ವಾಮಿ !

RT @gvrkiran
We manually annotated 27k messages (dataset publicly accessible below) & tried to understand the themes in these messages & build technology 2 detect such speech

You have all the usual suspects: Love Jihad, Muslims over populating, etc

Emojis are also used very effectively

🚨New paper on hate speech on WhatsApp @TheWebConf !!🚨

We studied the prevalence of hate speech in the millions of WhatsApp messages we collected during the Indian elections in 2019.

We find that most hate is not explicit but in terms of fear!

I hope @rssharma3 will respect this and won't force aadhaar for vaccinations.

In past we have seen DoT issuing Mobile Aadhaar Re-KYC order citing a non existing SC order

I really expect Govt won't do such mischievous acts this time gatekeeping public health of Indians.
