    This is another stupid action by the power hungry family. Only other country that blocked the social media may be Russia. The more you suppress the people the more the reactions will be.

    Blocking social media is a sign of desperation by a failed regime. Tomorrow is this failed regime with its security apparatus and saffron army going to say that criticism of Saffron Army anointed GR is sacrilegious

    Don't frustrate the people more.
