Jaadu Tona mindset of the “high tech” Indian internet industry

The internet industry in India may claim to be high tech but many companies lack scientific temper . If a sufficient number of blackmailers and extortionists gang up to make defamatory allegations of payment against an entrepreneur without any proof,they are automatically considered to be saints telling the truth. These blackmailers and extortionists do not have any kind of evidence or proof of payment,yet they have powerful backers to support their lies, and their statement is used to pass judgement on a person’s character and business. It is very easy to make allegations without proof against an entrepreneur, just to earn some easy money.

Similarly any one who claims to be involved in a business, is assumed to be telling the truth, without verifying the facts with the business owner. At a later date, it is proved that the liar has nothing to with the business, but instead of sacking the liar, the internet companies will continue to protect and promote the liar at the cost of the business owner, who is their loyal customer.

Science and technology relies on evidence and proof, but some Indian internet companies rely on gossip, speculation, similar to mindset of uneducated people believing in Jaadu Tona (black magic/superstition) many centuries ago. They protect and encourage these blackmailers and extortionists who make these blatantly false allegations against their customers without any proof, betraying the trust of their customers, who spend their hard earned money with them. Why is the internet sector in India so different from the engineering and finance sector, where no one can make an allegation/claim without any proof?
