Twitter India has suspended the account of Madhu Kishwar, the founder of Manushi journal on Monday. This has caused Twitter users to indulge in guessing games as to what may have prompted the microblogging site to ban the Twitter handle of one of India’s most prolific social media users.
User Shilpi Tewari was the first to notice that Kishwar’s account had been suspended.
Is @madhukishwar's account suspended??

Tewari, a known BJP supporter and former aide of Smriti Irani, then posted another tweet informing that she had spoken to Kishwar, who reportedly confirmed to her about her account’s suspension.
She wrote, “I confirmed with @madhukishwar that her account has been suspended. She had no clue so she checked & saw an email from @twitter saying so. I believe the email from @Twitter hasn’t given her any specific reason yet but @madhukishwar has written an email to @TwitterIndia folks.”
While nobody knows the reason, some felt that this may have been due to an objectionable child video recently posted by Kishwar, a known BJP supporter. Then there were those, who felt that the reason may have been her social media bust up with the former Gujarat IPS officer, Sanjiv Bhatt.
Here are some of the reasons being guessed by Twitter users.
that pic was all over whatsapp and twitter. If thats the reason and only she has been suspended, fishy.
