Ratan Tata calls for end to online bullying

Mumbai | Updated on June 21, 2020

At a time when social media is dominated by vitriolic diatribe and hateful comments, Ratan Tata, on Sunday, took to Instragram to express his views against online hatred and bullying.

The Indian industrialist and philanthropist wrote: “This year has been full of challenges for everyone, on some level or the other. I see the online community being hurtful to each other, bringing each other down, harsh and with quick judgments. I believe this year especially calls for us to be unified and helpful and is not the time to pull each other down. More of sensitivity towards each other, more of kindness and more of understanding and patience than what one sees today.”

He added that his presence online is limited, “but I truly hope it will evolve into a place of empathy and support for everyone, no matter what your cause, rather than hate and bullying”.
