Spreading Hate Through Social Media- The Leicester Case Study| What Does This Data Say?

After India won the T20 match against Pakistan in the start of the World Cup in August this year, violence erupted in the town of Leicester UK. A small British town with population of 3.5 Lakhs, having people who have been law abiding citizens. The group clashed started between Hindu and Muslim youngsters. The violence continued for a couple of weeks and what appeared that the Police was caught unawares. Why did people start fighting over something as silly as winning or losing a cricket match? In this episode, I trace the roots of the problem. What should have a small law and order issue was made into an international incident with even the Government of India jumping in ring. With unnecessary escalation and undue support from abroad, the local groups continue to quarrel. The UK Governments attempt to have an inquiry into the incident also failed due to external pressure groups. The allegations and counter allegations continue and the UK government is finding itself in a quandary over how to handle the case. I take you the Leicester violence incident as an example of how the social media is easily hijacked by undesirable elements for political gains. Watch the full episode.
