Keyboard warriors

MILLIONS of keyboard warriors keep themselves busy sharing and forwarding posts without realising the impact it will have on society’s mental health, in general, and on the social fabric and the morals of the people, in particular.

Unfortunately, from a child of eight years to an older adult of 80 years, everybody in our country likes to give views on all sorts of matters, especially on the moral flaws in society.

This sends a negative message to the world community and tarnishes the country’s image.

There is a dire need to have a strict policy that must regulate all undesired and objectionable content on social media. Educating and grooming people on how to respond to undesirable incidents is the need of the hour.
