CEO, Chairman, Member of the Board, Twitter Inc (NASDAQ: TWTR): Revoke the decision of appointment of Mr. Raheel Khursheed as Head - News, Politics and government, Twitter India

This petition had 4,716 supporters


Recently Twitter India has appointed Mr. Raheel Khursheed as the Head of News, Politics and Govt. While we the petitioners have no business of questioning Mr. Khursheed's professional qualifications but his political bias and statements in the past makes us believe that he will not be able to discharge his duties in an unbiased manner. 

Mr. Khursheed for past many years through his tweets has displayed sheer contempt and hate for NDA's Prime Minister Candidate Mr. Narendra Modi, even calling him a mass murderer.  He  also openly supported Kashmiri separatists, again through his tweets. There have also been multiple incidents where he made fun of Hindus (more than 70% of India's population). A month back he was openly seen collaborating with INC (ruling party in India) spokesperson against a right leaning journo.

In recent years, Twitter has gained huge popularity in India because it provides an unbiased and neutral platform for people to express their opinion. With the appointment of Mr. Khursheed we believe Twitter as a platform will loose all it's credibility. We fear, with a severely biased person at the helm of a critical function, Twitter will end up becoming a manipulation tool in the hands of the ruling party and their cohorts. We appeal to you, through this petition, to immediately revoke this appointment and ensure that Twitter continues to enjoy the trust among all sections of Indians.
