PM Modi has been featured on the cover of Time magazine with the headline, 'Divider in Chief'.
Ever since the cover was released, it courted a lot of controversy and in a latest update, the author, Aatish Taseer's Wikipedia page has been vandalised.
One social media user tweeted a message that read:
So this guys Aatish Taseer works as PR manager for Indian National Congress. No doubt Time magzine has lost their credibilty and has become mouthpiece of Leftist. pic.twitter.com/ZIUWUuB9TZ— Chowkidar Shash (@pokershash) May 10, 2019
According to reports, the phrase about Taseer being 'the PR manger for Indian National Congress' was added to the 'Career' section of his Wikipedia page.
Scroll, reportedly observed that his Wikipedia page was constantly modified, the first edit being at around 7:59 AM.
Twitter users were quick to react to this.
Someone has removed his link to congress in wiki today: pic.twitter.com/c01ihA0ZXP— Sahana Iyangar Athreya (@vandema09287787) May 10, 2019
When I checked at morning there was no link of Congress. About 1 hr ago it was edited and Congress link was there. Now again it is edited and congress link is removed— sachin shukla (@sachinshukla644) May 10, 2019
The nasty personal attacks against @AatishTaseer only show those people as the uncivilised, uncouth trolls that they are. Everyone can disagree, but this is cyber bullying of a whole different kind https://t.co/MotY0dBVoV— Nidhi Razdan (@Nidhi) May 11, 2019
Please don’t denigrate a person/family if you disagree with their views. Aatish Taseer’s father gave his life fighting against his country’s archaic anti-blasphemy law. That Aasia Bibi is alive and safe today is partly because of Salman Taseer. Let’s criticise ideas, not people?— Andy Mukherjee (@andymukherjee70) May 10, 2019
Clearly someone is upto some mischief.— Vishakha Joshi (@VishakhaJ18) May 10, 2019

After persistent disruption, Taseer's page has been brought under protection with no more edits allowed to his page.
