Explain ‘no action’ against Kamra: Children’s rights body summons Twitter executive

The country’s top child rights body, the NCPCR, on Wednesday summoned Twitter India’s communications director for failing to submit a report on action taken against comedian Kunal Kamra for posting a ‘tweaked’ video of a boy singing a patriotic song for Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his visit to Germany earlier. this month.

On May 5, the National Commission for the Protection of Children’s Rights filed a lawsuit against Kamra for tweeting the “tampered” video.

The Commission has now asked the director of Twitter Communications India to appear on Wednesday with details of the report on the action taken.

“A letter in this regard has been sent to your good offices dated 05.05.2022 requesting an ATR (Action Taken Report) in the current complaint within 7 days or receipt of the letter.

“However, no ATRs have yet been received by the Commission,” the NCPCR said in the letter sent on Tuesday.

Kamra had shared the alleged video of Modi’s interaction in Germany with the child, but he replaced the song the boy was singing – “Janmabhoomi Bharat” – with “Mehengayi daayan khaaye jaat hain”, a Bollywood song about the price increase.
