Twitter has banned Khalsa Aid founder Ravi Singh’s account in India. Ravi Singh shared a picture of the account on Facebook and wrote, “My Twitter account has been banned in India! This is the real face of democracy under the BJP!! Banning Sikh social media accounts won’t stop us raising our voices! We will only get louder!”
Khalsa Aid is a UK-based non-governmental organisation which was among the major organisa-tions that provided logistical support to the farmers’ protest led by the Samyukt Kisan Morcha (SKM) in 2020. It helped bring attention to the movement outside India. Its volunteers helped arrange food and other essential items for the farmers.
In 2021, Khalsa Aid was nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize for its humanitarian work done across the globe. The Nobel nomination was made by Canadian politicians in public office, Tim Uppal, Patrick Brown and Prabmeet Singh Sarkaria.—AP
