Facebook faces turbulence after it has allegedly failed to take action in India against hate speech

Questioned representative, T. Raja Singh, said his account was hacked Monday.

Facebook is in the eye of a political storm in India after claims that a Hindu nationalist lawmaker has failed to take action against hate speech posts out of fear for its business interests.

India is the largest user market in the U.S.-based Facebook and its messaging service WhatsApp, and the company is under worldwide pressure on how to manage hate speech.
