[Few thoughts on the infamous 'Squad'!]

Closed group where people are added after scrutinizing the profile.

They are directed to report selected pages/posts/videos that group admins do not like no matter if they show actual facts (e.g. videos showing dhruv's lies)
These people are constantly fed negative news about right side of political spectrum.

Interesting to note, they claim to criticize those in power but this group hardly shares anything against AAP, a party in power with absolute majority.
Group has certain people as admins who are allegedly associated with AAP.

This group is filled with hate posts against current central government sometimes even with manipulated data as true facts
People in this group are asked to post with certain hashtags at certain times of the day.

Most of these hashtags are made for plain hate mongering against Central govt. Or state govt. ONLY WHERE BJP is ruling party
While I think, constructive criticism is necessity for healthy democracy, this hate mongering is very very dangerous.

Mostly because a large chunk of this group is young and impressionable youth and they keep consuming this hate mongering posts, thanks to social media algorithms
Also, reporting feature on social media platforms is for people to express their personal discomfort.

When large group of people are directed to report specific posts, it goes against the very ethos of social media.

More importantly, they are made to feel as if they are..
..serving any greater purpose.

Their blind trust in one person and collective hatred towards an ideology is just being amplified in the echo-chamber of this group.

This very thing is very undemocratic and promotes the idea of mob mentality. Again, very lethal for society.
Selection of people in the group, alleged political links of some of its admins, fetching on collective hatred towards an ideology, directed mass reporting (equivalent to mass attack in real world) and promoting certain hate filled hashtags collectively...
drive to the conclusion that this group operates much like any hooligan outfit that believe in idea of shutting down every voice that they don't like.

This mob mentality is being amplified in this echo chamber and is a threat which not many people are able to see.
