New social media etiquette: Masoom Dehlavi’s column

If you spend half an hour on Twitter, it is estimated that there is no shortage of idiots as well as intelligent people in the world. Yeah Al that sounds pretty crap to me, Looks like BT aint for me either.

The truth is, there is nothing wrong with that. All the wars that can make our lives better or worse are fought, won and lost on platforms like Twitter these days.
It is also true that the lives of people like us (slightly older) can be divided into two parts, the life before social media when everyone was busy with their work, life was spent at home, sometimes with family and sometimes Friends, where did you go, who did you meet, what did you do, no one knew except your limited circle, and life after social media, when it seems that we have become accustomed to open our bedroom windows and doors. We have made our lives an open book that anyone can read at any time.

Now where are the times when after the death of someone to tell a few pictures and some of the letters of the beauties are found in the house. Neither love nor hatred is hidden, but sadly no one is trying to hide hatred nowadays.
Two or three recent examples will make you wonder if it is possible to return to the path we have taken. The latest example is ‘Billi Bai’. Someone has created a platform on the internet where prominent Indian Muslim women have been put up for ‘auction’. Objectionable distorted pictures of them have been uploaded along with offensive text. That was five or six months ago. At the time, it was called Sully Deals. Details can only be found on social media.

There was a lot of commotion even then. The need to protect women’s rights and women’s dignity, a moment of reflection … The moral decline of society … And many such heavy-handed words were used but still no action was taken against anyone. No arrests were made. So the same person or group or any new fighter on the internet is further strengthened, if you believe that you can say and do whatever you want, there is no one to ask, then the spirits must be high, and therefore the sequel to Sully Deals. Appeared in the form of ‘Billi Bai’.
This time the police have arrested a young man. From Bangalore, the center of information technology in India. Mumbai Police will question the 21-year-old engineering student and may find out what his interest is in auctioning off Muslim women, or who is behind the whole scheme.
But this is not an isolated incident. At the moment there is an atmosphere of hatred all around. A few days ago, a meeting of Hindu religious leaders was held in the hill state of Uttarakhand in which such language was openly used that it is not believed that they are still roaming freely.
And now we are preparing for another meeting of the same nature. It doesn’t take much brainstorming to figure out what to say.
And then this war will be fought on social media. Defeat and victory will obviously be decided on the basis of personnel, so those who spread hatred will easily win. The fact is that the rabbit always wins the race between the tortoise and the hare, no matter how long he sleeps in between.
And those sensible people who don’t get tired of saying what are you doing, man, don’t light this fire because it will not be possible to put it out, then they will sit quietly after screaming.

There are two possible solutions to this problem. One is the role of political leadership and the other is the reaction of social media users. If the political leadership sends a clear message that those who spread hatred will not be tolerated, the matter may end immediately. But as someone has written on social media, our leadership is trying to avenge Aurangzeb’s atrocities. It is also true in principle, the oppressor, even if he is the king, must be brought to justice, otherwise the chain of oppression does not end.
It doesn’t matter that almost four centuries have passed. It is important that justice is done. In the same way, China’s number will also come. His name is also on the list of priorities. It may seem to China that we can release a propaganda video of our flag-waving in Gloucester, build a bridge over Penggang Lake in Ladakh, move the disputed border arbitrarily back and forth and no one will say anything. No, it will be fair but it will take some time.
In the same way, as soon as the rulers get time, the number of those who do hate business will also come.
But what can you do to stop hate on social media? Don’t respond to hatred with hatred. Don’t be a customer of these businesses. Journalists are taught a basic thing. Don’t say anything on social media that you can’t say in your articles, radio or TV programs.

With a little modification, you too can follow this advice. The next time you go on social media, don’t say anything that you can’t do with your wife, children or parents. This is a small filter but it can change the life of many people.
In the new year, just resolve that we will not give oxygen to anyone else’s hatred, let those who want to burn in it burn.
And yes, try to see the world outside of social media as well. Looking forward to meeting you there.

Great gift on Pakistan’s 50th birthday … Nazir Sabir, the first Pakistani to cross the Himalayas
