Facebook didn't ban Bajrang Dal to protect business, staff: Report

Despite being tagged by Facebook's security team as a potentially dangerous organisation that supports violence against minorities across India, the Bajrang Dal has been allowed to thrive on the social network out of political and safety considerations, The Wall Street Journal reported on Sunday. Facebook has dithered on acting against the right-wing group with ties to the ruling BJP because "cracking down on Bajrang Dal might endanger both the company's business prospects and its staff in India", the newspaper wrote, reaffirming its reportage earlier this year on the subject.
