Prime Minister please unfollow trolls, it gives a wrong message!

Respected Prime Minister Mr. Modi,

Indians have loved you beyond measure and gave you an overwhelming mandate in 2014 election and I believe that you might be our PM in 2019 as well. People of India, youth of India looks upto you as a role model and icon.

You are one of the few politician who is tech savvy and connects with people so well. I want to bring to your notice that 33.9 million (3.39 Crore) people follow you on just one social media site i.e. Twitter and around 44 Million (4.3 Crore) are your fan on Facebook and that makes you one of the most followed politician in India. 

I recently noticed that you follow a mere 1779 people on twitter and out of the selected few there are few who are a disgrace to society and more than that to your name. They abuse people, disrespect women, give threats of rape and murder. I know they are people with bad childhood, parenting and don't know what they are doing. But Mr. Prime Minister they are putting your name in bad light because I believe you will never endorse such behaviour.

Therefore I request you to please unfollow such trolls from your twitter account. In the article here, there is a list of few handles who have brought disgrace to your name. 

List of abusers followed by you:

I request you to unfollow such people and show the youth of nation that you are against such people and will never endorse such comments. I have deep faith in the mandate of people and you as well, please lead by example and do what a revered leader like you should do.

- Regards,
Prakhar Bhartiya
(Citizen of India)

Narendra Modi is just a symptom

It is not a reflection of Narendra Modi who is endorsing such language in a subtle way, the issue is much deeper. NaMo is just a symptom and it is going to last, if not him then someone else.

The primary reason is the callous and selfish society that we are as a nation. National Interest comes last on our list of priorities, we have ignored the issues plaguing around us for far too long and it has created a vacuum of leadership in our country.

During Independence movement we had exceptional leaders who took the plunge to selflessly build the nation, they gave a promising direction to the country. Nation building became the task of few post then and eventually people with deep selfish interest rose to fill the vacuum.

Now what we see is a result of two generations of ignorance, it will continue unless a critical mass of people don't come forward to build the nation and make it their top priority. It is like in every other space the quality of product is mediocre in our country unless someone brings the exceptional product and we know there are few exceptional products.

We like it or not NaMo and such tribe are going to stay unless a generation takes it as a role to shift this. He is what we deserve and he is the best we deserve at this point of time. I am hopeful to witness the signs of shift in my lifetime.

PS. Its a difficult choice to rise and do something that doesn't have immediate result. There will 'n' reasons why you cant make this choice but there is only one reason to do and that's going to be YOUR personal calling. So, these choices are not for all to make, not everyone is cut out to be exceptional but we all have the sanity to recognise, look for and support such individuals.
