MP broke mobile with hammer while speaking in Parliament, video went viral2 min read
Viral Video: During the discussion in the Parliament of any country, MPs sometimes lose their temper against their colleagues. One such video from Turkey is going viral these days. But here the MP did not take out his anger on any partner, instead he broke his mobile with a hammer while speaking.
According to media reports, Burak Erbe, a member of the opposition Republican People’s Party, was opposing a proposed government-backed bill. The purpose of this bill is to stop online fake news. Under this law, social media networks and Internet sites must release details of users suspected of “spreading misleading information”, and can result in up to three years in prison for the accused. But Kurak did not agree with this and broke his mobile with a hammer.
What did the MP say
CHP MP Burak Erbe said before taking out his hammer, ‘I want to address my brothers who are 15, 16, 17 years old and who will decide the fate of Turkey in 2023. You have only one freedom left – the phone in your pocket. Instagram, YouTube, Facebook. You communicate there. If this law is passed in Parliament then you can break your phone like this.
Why is there opposition to the law?
Critics say the bill, if passed into law, would infringe on the freedom of the press and lead to widespread censorship. Most Turkish newspapers and television channels came under the control of government officials and their business associates in a massive crackdown following a failed coup in 2016. But social networks and Internet-based media remained largely free of surveillance.
