Court admits petition by Brahmin body against Twitter CEO

Jodhpur: A local court on Thursday admitted a petition filed by a Brahmin organization against Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey who was recently shown holding a placard was reading "Smash Brahminical Patriarchy."

The matter has been listed for hearing on December 1 in the court of metropolitan judge Rachana Bissa, said the petitioner's counsel H.M. Saraswat.

Vice President of Vipra Foundation's youth wing, Rajkumar Sharma, has filed the petition against Dorsey for "spreading hatred against the Brahmin community" on the social media platform.

Dorsey had posted a picture on his twitter account in which he is seen posing with six female journalists, with a poster in his hands with 'Smash Brahminical Patriarchy' written on it, said Sharma.

He said this comment is not only anti-Brahmin but also contained a coarse language which is "humiliating and thus intolerable".

The petition has been filed under various sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).

Noting that Dorsey has not apologised, Sharma said: "The apology has been tendered by the legal policy head and not by Dorsey himself," adding that even if Dorsey apologised, the crime committed by him will not be mitigated.
