US Ambassador Atul Keshap said hate-filled people who exploited new ways to fan the flames of intolerance and violence are the real main culprits of racial tensions.
“Social media is an imperfect, evolving, and fluid platform that uses new technology to connect and reflect human societies as a whole, including the good and bad,” he said in a twitter post.

You are very correct Sir. There is plenty of evidence from this media itself.Over 90% of comments in DM and many other similar forums are full of hatred against each other race and religion.
