India’s Best Satire Page Gets Taken Off Facebook After Its Admin Received Death Threats

Political satire page Humans Of Hindutva was shut down yesterday, after the admin of the page allegedly started receiving death threats. Somehow, his personal phone number got leaked, and he started receiving threats – which also included threatening his family.

The anonymous admin, who also runs the website Satyanash, used to regularly make fun of the BJP, RSS and right wing fundamentalism. Over the past eight months, the page got a lot of followers, with many praising the tongue-in-cheek approach with which HOH approached its posts.

On his website Satyanash, the admin explained the reasoning behind him quitting the page, just to keep himself and his family safe.

” I’m quitting out of my own accord. I’ve not been banned or mass reported. I have recently received some threats to my life which I can’t take lightly. I am outnumbered, live in a BJP state and come from a middle-class family with no political or police connections. I have no desire to end up like Gauri Lankesh or Afrazul Khan. Actually, more than myself I worry for the safety of my family.  I hope those who threatened me consider this as a victory and leave us alone. I have deleted the HOH page and will delete this website soon. Congratulations to Hindutva on winning this David vs. Goliath fight. As for those who were kind enough to lend me their ears for the last eight months, I’d like to wish you all a Happy New Year. Cheers and alvida. Thanks for giving me some of your time. “

Many followers of the page have taken to social media to condemn the times we are living in, where freedom of speech is a myth.

Cheers to us!
