Tenyimi Students’ Union Dimapur (TSUD) has voiced its concern over misuse of social media platforms and spreading of misinformation and hatred.

Acknowledging the benefits of digital empowerment, TSUD president Rukewezo Wetsah and finance secretary Asin Rengma said this has also brought in challenges and some of its reckless abuse posed a serious dilemma of striking a balance between freedom of speech and expression.
It called for awareness, empowerment and the obligation to be responsible and accountable, so that social media platforms did not become vehicles to commit crime, incite hatred or extremism.
Mentioning that it was disheartened to see many posts, comments, screenshots, etc, challenging each other using name of tribes, TSUD demanded that such people should be booked and held accountable for any untoward incident.
As most of the social media users were educated, the union said it expected them to be responsible and ensure that individual posts or comments did not hurt the sentiments of others or incite communal hatred.
Asking all its members to be cautious while posting or commenting on social media platforms, TSUD said it would not be responsible for any member trying to instigate or inciting violence.
It also appealed to everyone to refrain from posting derogatory comments.
“At this crucial juncture, we Nagas should stand together with spirit of oneness, empathy and understanding and not let some few individuals with vested interest be the end of us all,” TSUD stated.
