Voices of dissent are being muzzled in India as the state continues its clampdown, on people and publications criticizing them, with impunity. Sometimes it is political stooges who file private complaints, other times it is the police that intervenes and demands that people take down social media posts. In many other cases, people are threatened by faceless trolls that act like an online lynch mob.
Many people, like the administrator of the Facebook page Humans of Hindutva, were forced to take down their content after receiving death threats. Here are some of the latest cases filed in 2017.
