Say No To Hate Speech In State Election Campaigns

Unfortunately, politicians have not refrained from using hot button issues, including the 3Rs (race, religion, royalty). We speak with Wathshlah Naidu, Executive Director, Centre for Independent Journalism (CIJ) for her insights on social media trends and hate speech in the ongoing 6 state elections
