NIVEDITA MENON is mystified by the sudden disappearance of the libertarian blog KAFILA from cyberspace

Yesterday from about 3 pm, nobody could get into Kafila. All we could see was a notice that said WordPress had suspended the blog for ‘violating terms of service’. We wrote immediately to WordPress, who replied that they would get back to us. No reply from them so far, but Kafila suddenly reappeared at about 9 pm last night.
On a possibly unrelated note, we have all been noticing the mysterious disappearance from cyber space of much anti-Modi content, sometimes even his own previous speeches that do not fit his currently projected persona. Hmm.
Anyway, we’re celebrating Kafila’s return with this rousing anthem, in solidarity with all of us out there – from Mumbai to Banaras to Kudankulam. We’re here, and here we’ll stay. To Pakistan – a friendly reassurance – don’t bother about preparing for the sudden influx of a billion illegal immigrants! Aab ki Baar, Modi ki Haar!!
We’ll see the bubble burst. Hum dekhenge.
