On opening the Twitter account of Ravi Singh Khalsa, the founder of Khalsa Aid, the notification reads: "Ravi Singh Khalsa's account has been withheld in India in response to a legal demand."

Recently, Twitter withheld two farmers’ handles ‘Tractor 2 Twitter’ and ‘Kisan Ekta Morcha.

Upon opening the Twitter accounts of ‘Tractor 2 Twitter’ and ‘Kisan Ekta Morcha’, there was the same notification that reads, “… account has been withheld in India in response to a legal demand.”

In the same development, the farmer leader Harmeet Singh Kadian had written: “Freedom of speech is a human right and the foundation upon which democracy is built. Any restriction of freedom of speech is a restriction upon democracy. To withheld ‘Kisan Ekta Morcha’ and ‘Tractor 2 Twitter’ is direct attack on freedom to speech of farmers.

Earlier, Punjabi singer Sidhu Moose Wala’s song ‘SYL’ was removed from YouTube in India following a legal complaint by the government.

Likewise, people have been criticising the government and Twitter for suppressing the voice of people by withholding the accounts of 'Tractor 2 Twitter' and 'Kisan Ekta Morcha' and now 'Ravi Singh Khalsa'.
