Telegram groups belonging to Kapil Mishra is spreading hateful messages.

The ecosystem created by BJP leader Kapil Mishra is responsible for spreading communal hatred and has more than 20,000 members.

The ecosystem created by BJP leader Kapil Mishra is responsible for spreading communal hatred and has more than 20,000 members. On February 15, 2021, Newslaudry's Meghnad S. and Shambhavi Thakur published an investigative report about an ecosystem of Hindutva right-wing groups started by Bharatiya Janata Party MLA Kapil Mishra and his supporters on Telegram. The authors describe this ecosystem by stating that "Kapil Mishra is leading a network of over 20,000 people who are working in an organized fashion to create and spread communal hatred".

On November 16, 2020, Mishra tweeted, saying that whoever is interested can fill in a form and join what he described as the “Hindu Ecosystem” organization. The form included seeking the details such as name, phone number, state and country of residence, a special area of interest. It also asked for a declaration about joining the group online after filling the form and became a member of the Telegram group and was later added to other associated groups.

Newslaundry describes the working of these grounds as: "The Hindu Ecosystem's Twitter account tweets several times a day. Every week, they pick up a theme and indulge intense operations about it, ready with mass publicity and a bunch of fake news with bad aesthetics, to push the Hindutva ideology. In fact, in the Telegram group, they have texted highlighting the problems that they will run organized campaigns on".

According to an article by Scroll.in, "There is “gauraksha”, cow protection, which promises to be a less bucolic activity than “gausewa”, cow care. There is also ghar Wapasi”, the Hindutva project of converting minorities so that they might return to the Hindu fold from which they had apparently strayed. Other options are building temples, “sewa in general” and “Hindu ekta”, the original RSS project of establishing the unity of Hindu society. But over the decades, the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh has moved in mysterious ways, choosing to keep its vast network of organizations and membership low key as it worked on long-term civilizational projects. Mishra’s new venture has the exuberance of a startup, with all its talk of teams and numbers, its embrace of social media publicity".
