- YouTube removes Bengal BJP chief’s videos on post-poll violence.
- BJP President Dilip Ghosh shared YouTube videos of post-poll violence in the state.
- The video has been removed for violating YouTube community guidelines.
Ghosh on Friday shared a couple of YouTube videos of the post-poll violence on his Twitter timeline with the caption: “Some of the illustrious achievements of the Trinamool Congress government in past two months.”
However, soon after he shared those videos on Twitter, YouTube pulled them down stating that they violated its community guidelines. According to the video streaming platform’s community guidelines, such action is usually undertaken to ensure that the YouTube community “stays protected”.
What videos are banned from YouTube?
YouTube’s Terms of Service prohibit the posting of videos that violate copyrights or depict pornography, illegal acts, gratuitous violence, or hate speech. It pulls contents for violating its policies regarding hate speech and harassment, spam and deceptive practices, violent or graphic content policy, and violations of its terms of service.
- Copyright and intellectual property protection laws;
- Violations of hate speech, ethics, or morality-based laws;
- National security legislation.
What happens if your YouTube video gets removed?
This means that you will no longer be able to log in to your account, all of your videos will be disabled, and you will not be able to regain access to your account. You will still be able to access your other Google products with the same account.
Bhattacharya, however, said, “The violence was brutal, it exceeds all civilized norms. That is why YouTube is shocked and compelled to remove the videos. As stated by our party for over two years and the NHRC now, this is the real situation of West Bengal.” West Bengal Chief Minister and TMC supremo Mamata Banerjee on July 22 claimed that BJP was using fake videos to back up its “concocted stories” about post-poll violence.
