Say no to hate speech in state election campaigns


With fewer crowds turning up at ceramahs, social media has become a critical channel for political parties to communicate and amplify their message with voters.

BFM talks to Wathshlah Naidu, executive director of the Centre for Independent Journalism (CIJ) for her insights on social media trends and hate speech in the ongoing six state elections.
