BJP and Piramal are afraid: suppression of OBMA’s online activism!

Posted on 06/03/2023


We are happy to note that some of our tweets on the DHFL Scam are no longer visible in India.

We received an email from the Twitter headquarters on 2:34 am (IST) on 06/03/2023. Through this mail, Twitter communicated to us that one of our website’s profiles: @anekanta01 (along with its associated ones including Ashok Khemka IAS, Akhar Bandyopadhyay, Rupa Sanyal, Mrs Bandana, Once in a Blue Moon Academia, MR S.R.PAL C.A.I.I.B & EX- BANKER and so on) contain multiple tweets that violate the “local laws” of India. Twitter has further stated that it is going to withhold all these tweets in India based on a “court order” from a law or government enforcement agency.

We are happy to note that we are successful in making ourselves heard. We are successful in making the ruling class tremble with fear. This type of suppression of voice or online ban only proves (yet again) that India is “party free”, an autocratic crony state moving towards an Orwellian dystopia, where both the form of language and content are controlled as well as manipulated by the ruling class.

We are giving the full text of that mail as follows:

Hello @anekanta01,

In the interest of transparency, we are writing to inform you that Twitter has received a court order regarding your Twitter account, @anekanta01, that claims the following content violates the law(s) of India.

In order to comply with Twitter’s obligations under India’s local laws, we have withheld this content in India; the content remains available elsewhere. For more information about our Country Withheld Content policy, please see this page:

As Twitter strongly believes in defending and respecting the voice of our users, it is our policy to notify our users if we receive a legal request from an authorized entity (such as law enforcement or a government agency) to remove content from their account. We provide notice whether or not the user lives in the country where the request originated. This page provides more information:

When we take action on legal removal requests, and as long as the request does not prohibit us from doing so, we also notify Lumen (, an independent, third-party research project studying and publishing such requests.

We understand that receiving this type of notice can be an unsettling experience. While Twitter is not able to provide legal advice, we want you to have an opportunity to evaluate the request and, if you wish, take appropriate action to protect your interests. This may include seeking legal counsel and challenging the request in court, contacting relevant civil society organizations, voluntarily deleting the content (if applicable), or finding some other resolution. For more information on legal requests Twitter receives from governments worldwide, please refer to this article on our Help Center, as well as our biannual Transparency Report:


Whenever the ruling Hindutvavadi party, along with their business-tycoon friends like Adani-Ambani-Piramal, have tried to “ban” or “censor” or suppress the dissenting voices, the latter have only proliferated and have got amplified due to the predominance of web-based communications. Recent examples of such onslaught by the ruling party on democracy and freedom of speech and expression are given as follows:

a) BBC Documentary: “India: The Modi Question“‘s screening was banned, only giving way to it being uploaded across various online platforms and being projected at various universities and colleges across India (e.g., JNU, Presidency University, Jadavpur University, Delhi University).

b) Hindenburg Research’s Report on the Adani Group. Condemning George Soros’ comments on the said Report and Modi’s India in general.

c) Giving police (and otherwise) threats to singer Neha Singh Rathore⤡ and her family led to a spike in Neha Singh Rathore’s popularity.

d) Banning Pathaan (2023) only led to its box office success.

e) Condemning the Caravan Report on the Gujarat Riots led to its wide circulation.

f) Suhani Shah’s revelation of BJP-adided Bageshwar Baba’s “chamatkari”.

Kindly note that India’s rank in the World Freedom of Press index is 150th out of 180 countries⤡. You can view India’s miserable condition in the following compilation:







This Bangla song, originally written by Turkish Poet Nazim Hikmet, was later translated in Bangla by Subhash Mukhopadhyay and then sung by various music groups (IPTA, Calcutta Youth Choir, Hemanga Biswas et al.) with different variations. This song tells the might of the revolutionary forces that offer resistance against the fascist blow to freedom of speech and expression. The song was dedicated to international political activist and singer: Paul Robeson. Some of the lines are being translated as follows:

“They are afraid, O Robeson!

They are afraid of our enraged red gaze!

They are afraid of our unhindered voice!

They are afraid of our mighty parade, O Robeson!

They are afraid of the sounding drums of Revolution!


They are afraid of Life.

They are afraid of Death.

They fear that traumatic memory,

They fear the nightmares.

They are afraid of the waves of mass agitation.

They are afraid of the intensity of our solidarity.

They are afraid of the power of our high spirits.

They are afraid of the form of their termination.

Last but not the least,

we wish to say that you can still easily view these “banned” (only in India) tweets by using any VPN server.

We are thanking the Twitter team for not banning us worldwide.

We simply have one humble appeal to all the victims of the DHFL Scam: continue to make yourselves heard by liking, commenting, sharing/retweeting/reblogging across our social media profiles. We are not alone in this fight. Your one subscription will strengthen our collective protest.

Motivate and inspire yourself to carry the struggle on by remembering the glorious example of the Indian revolutionaries. Here is an excerpt from Shaheed Bhagat Singh’s last petition to the imperialist authority (he was no way a “Veer” Savarkar, who submitted multiple mercy petitions for his release from prison!)

“The war shall continue. It may assume different shapes at different times. It may become now open, now hidden, now purely agitational, now fierce life and death struggle. The choice of the course, whether bloody or comparatively peaceful, which it should adopt rests with you. Choose whichever you like. But that war shall be incessantly waged without taking into consideration the petty (illegible) and the meaningless ethical ideologies. It shall be waged ever with new vigour, greater audacity and unflinching determination till the Socialist Republic is established and the present social order is completely replaced by a new social order, based on social prosperity and thus every sort of exploitation is put an end to and the humanity is ushered into the era of genuine and permanent peace. In the very near future the final battle shall be fought and final settlement arrived at. The days of capitalist and imperialist exploitation are numbered. The war neither began with us nor is it going to end with our lives. It is the inevitable consequence of the historic events and the existing environments. Our humble sacrifices shall be only a link in the chain that has very accurately been beautified by the unparalleled sacrifice of Mr. Das and most tragic but noblest sacrifice of Comrade Bhagawati Charan and the glorious death of our dear warrior Azad.” —- Shaheed Bhagat Singh’s last petition to the British Colonialists.

    It is really sad & shocking to note that ruling party BJP has finally proved that they will leave no stone unturned & try their level best to
    (1) suppress common people specially DHFL FD HOLDERS who are poor, innocent, victims of scammers who were looted in broad day light.
    (2) To motivate scammers/ business tycoons to multiply looting activities only to get more & more donations.

    1. We are happy to observe that the power of people’s voices is asserted by the negation of their plea by the super-ordinates.
