Mangaluru: Facebook deletes Postcard News FB page, 'pseudo' accounts raise questions


StoryInfinity for Daijiworld

Mangaluru, Jul 16: The Facebook page of ‘Postcard News’, a portal which has been criticized several times for spreading fake, provocative and content which is communal in nature has been deleted by Facebook.

A tweet from handle ‘Unofficial: Subramanian Swamy’ which says “Facebook removed Fake News factory (Postcard) Facebook page after multiple people reported their fake and communal cooked up posts” with a screen shot of disclaimer from Facebook “Post Card’s account was deleted” is making rounds.

 

When one visits twitter page of Mahesh Vikram Hegde, the founder of Postcard news, he too has re-tweeted Unofficial: Subramanian Swamy’s tweet with a message “Best Example we nationalist are divided not united”. However, this tweet was later deleted by Mahesh Hegde.

Meanwhile, after the account was ‘deleted’ if one clicked the Facebook icon on Postcard’s web portal, it was diverted to a Facebook page ‘Yeh Public Hai Sab Janti Hai’ which carries PM Modi’s picture in the display as well as the cover. However, the handle of this Facebook Page was ‘@PostCardNews’ and has over 25,000 followers.
The top post on this Facebook page has a message “Hey Community, We need to unite, nobody can do this alone. People have to come forward and fight against this hypocrisy! Please note that we are not the official Post Card News, however we have used this name as our username since we didn't wanted anyone from outside of the community to use this username for their personal or political gains. We stand with Hegde ji and team Postcard!”

When Mahesh Hegde was contacted for comments, he confirmed that the Facebook page has been deleted. However, when questioned about ‘Yeh Public Hai Sab Janti Hai’ which is functioning using the @PostCardNews handle on Facebook, he refused to comment. However, after the call was made, the @PostCardNews handle of ‘Yeh Public Hai Sab Janti Hai’ page was immediately changed to @YehPublicHaiSabJantiHai. The Facebook hyperlink from the PostCard portal does not lead to this page anymore.

One can find another page on Facebook named ‘Postcard English’. This page carries the postcard news portal’s logo in the display and cover and follows the content pattern of Postcard media. All posts on this page are pro-BJP and pro-Modi in nature while many other posts troll Congress and its leaders. The page has over 2000 followers and has been active since April 2018, making one wonder if this page too is run by the Postcard News team.

Hegde was arrested in March 2018 for spreading fake news on social media about a Jain monk being arrested by Muslims. He was released on interim bail on April 13, 2018.

    Prime Minister Narendra Modi has often faced public condemnation for following some of the most vicious Twitter trolls on the microblogging site. Some of the Twitter users ‘blessed to be followed’ by Modi have called a murdered journalist bad words while rejoicing her death, targeted women journalists with rape threats and used inappropriate language for a journalist’s three-year-old daughter.
    All because their targets were critical of the policies of the government headed by Modi. Even in the face of both national and international condemnation, Modi has refused to unfollow these Twitter users.
    No where in the world would a top minister be subjected to this kind of trolling. And no where would a minister be made to feel so helpless.Modi's private army & even if one of these sick bigots is arrested all this nonsense will end.
    The tweet by his follower reveals why PM Modi had hidden sinister message for his troll army which proved in Social Media Day.
    Facebook deleting one account is not solution of 'communal hatred' in India, unless PM Modi himself unfollow such accounts who issue threat of rape, murder, abuse and ‘blessed to be followed’ by Modiji.
    Modiji is the only leader in the world who says 'Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao' and wanted to take 'selfie with daughter' and at the same time follows social media thread who abuse women of India.
    Postcard.com of page of Mahesh Vikram Hegde is one among them.

    HAHAHA, too late already Postcard did what was supposed to be done, which caused Congress a lot. I don't agree with the way postcard shows news but Something that kinda publication is indeed needed to stop the Gulami of Dynasty politics.

    Moreover, None of the people here are not talking about the Unofficial Susu Swamy or whatever that page, it's also a fake page btw.
