Officials said on Saturday that Kerala Governor Arif Mohammed Khan’s Facebook profile had been hacked.
According to the Honorable Governor Arif Mohammed Khan, his Facebook profile appears to have been compromised since this morning. The issue has been brought to our attention, and we are working to get the page back up,” tweeted PRO KeralaRajBhavan. Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury, a senior in the Congress, purportedly sent and then deleted a tweet containing a famous phrase from Rajiv Gandhi that was connected to the 1984 riots earlier in May. He then claimed that his Twitter account had been hacked. Chowdhury has reported this to the Delhi Police in the form of a police complaint.
The former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi was depicted in an infographic along with his famous remark, “When a great tree falls, the ground shakes,” which was uploaded by the Congress politician.
But he quickly removed it and published another post with a different quotation.
In the wake of former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi’s murder, former PM Rajiv Gandhi made a divisive speech that appeared to defend the 1984 Sikh massacre.
In addressing a crowd years ago, the late Rajiv Gandhi made the following statement, “Indiraji must be kept in mind. We must keep in mind the reasons for her murder. We must keep in mind who could be responsible for this. There were riots across the nation following Indira’s murder. We know that the Indian people’s emotions were racked with rage and that for a few days, they sensed India trembling. The ground trembles as a large tree falls.”
Chowdhury later said on Twitter, “The message from the Twitter account that mentions me has nothing to do with what I personally observed. Those who are against me are waging a nasty campaign.”
Furthermore, Chowdhury added in a revised tweet: “Construction of dams, factories, and highways is not development. People are the centre of development. Fulfillment on a material, cultural, and spiritual level is the aim. The human element is the most important one for progress.”
