This is one of the most funniest and hilarious post I am writing about. Yes you heard it right already the Social Networking tycoon Facebook blocks Indian users for using the slang “chu***”. Facebook literally blocked over thousands of Indian accounts for using the word “Ch****” in their name. According to The Times India report- user accounts of the All Assam Chu*** Students’ Union in India (AACSU) community on Facebook were blocked. The Community got confused as why their accounts were blocked by Facebook. It might be because of this reason that Facebook Security Team believes that these accounts were fake and trying to spread spam messages over the Facebook.
Addressing a press conference in Jorhat, AACSU general secretary Jyotiprasad Chu*** said: “‘Facebook has blocked the accounts of all the subscribers belonging to the chu*** community of Assam thinking the names are false and fabricated. For chu*** being an abusive word in the Hindi language, Facebook authorities thought that the account holders are fake and fabricated. But, they are still unknown to the fact that chu*** is an ethnic tribe of Assam which has a rich historical background in the state history.”
But in reality according to the Wikipedia page, The chu*** kingdom (pronounced Sutiya) was established by Birpal in 1187 in north-eastern Assam, with the capital at Sadiya. The Sutiya are an indigenous ethnic group that speak a Tibeto-Burman language. According to tradition, Birpal at first became the chief of sixty families.
The students got angry and protested against Facebook and burnt a Facebook effigy in the five upper Assam districts of Tinsukia, Dibrugarh, Sivasagar, Jorhat, and Golaghat and have demanded a public apology from the Facebook.

Whereas “Ch****” is the most commonly used slang among friends in India. It basically refers to a fool or an idiot.
