Microblogging site Twitter on Sunday removed an Islamophobic post by Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s BJP while Mark Zuckerberg-owned Instagram has chosen to not act against the caricature depicting the public hanging of Muslims wearing skullcaps.

The post was shared with a caption in Gujarati that read, “Satyamev Jayate. No forgiveness to those spreading terror.”

Justifying the removal of the disturbing tweet by the BJP Gujarat, Twitter wrote, “This Tweet violated the Twitter rules.”

However, Mark Zuckerberg-owned Instagram has not removed the post.

Zuckerberg had to face global condemnation in 2020 after it merged how his top colleagues working for Facebook and WhatsApp had helped the BJP promote Islamophobia in India.
