1. TrangaBellam, a Wikipedia editor of the communist ideology, removed a lot of factual information from The Kashmir Files and added negative reactions to the film. While adding negative parts, the editor added references to websites that are blacklisted by Wikipedia.
Thread: How Wikipedia editors TrangaBellam, VanaMonde & Kautilya are narrating Hindu history on Wikipedia with anti-Hindu bias.
They are targeting articles of Hindu Kings, Temples, historical events and texts.
This will be a contributory thread.
Friends, please add your comments.

2. TrangaBellam erased all the information that cited positive reviews of the film on the India Today website and added the content written against the film, citing the Film Companion, a website that is banned by Wikipedia.
3. Editors who added factual information protested the tampering. TrangaBellam gave vague answers in response.

4. The same anti-Hindu editor had also tampered with the page on Wikipedia that gave information about the devout Hindu writer Mr Vikram Sampath.
How does Wikipedia operate ?
Wikipedia is an online encyclopedia run by volunteers from around the world. It has lakhs of pages of information on almost every subject, eminent person, country, etc. Volunteers are needed to create an online account to write information on the subject. These volunteer editors are required to add references to official websites when adding information on certain topics, otherwise, the information on that topic is not considered. Editors, who basically volunteer from various backgrounds, can change this information at any time, but the website also has a system that monitors whether this information is accurate or not. However, due to the fact that this website is full of Communist-minded volunteers and the system also being anti-Hindu, the information that puts Hindus in a bad light can be seen on this website many times.
A few months ago, Larry Sanger, the website’s co-founder, left the site, alleging that the site had fallen into the hands of communist and liberal ideologues.
