Indians love to squabble about all kinds of things. Not matter how stupid/insane it makes them seem.

Why NedFausa is deeply involved in this crap, I can't even tell. He's American, white, and politically conservative. Ah, looking at his userpage gives (a form of) clarity.
Bullshit. You love wiki-fucking with people. And this story was perfect for abusing drive-by editors. And you have that autistic little shit Jeske Couriano to protect you.As a Westerner, I was unaware of the intensity with which Indians abominate self‑destruction. From Wikipedia (where else?), I learned that India decriminalized suicide in 2017. But it seems that millennia‑old taboos survive. Canadian psychologist Antoon Leenaars has called Hinduism, practiced by 80% of India's population, a stronger force than the legal code. "The Hindu believes in determinism, the law of karma," he writes. "In Hinduism, there are acts that are permanent pollutions/impurities; suicide is one. These cannot be overcome, even after death."
Despite the flak, Wikipedia held firm to its anti‑censorship policy. "Attempting to ensure that articles and images will be acceptable to all readers," it asserts, "or will adhere to general social or religious norms, is incompatible with the purposes of an encyclopedia."
That did not deter social media conspiracy theories. Indians barred from altering the encyclopedia that "anyone can edit" (albeit everyone could still read it) took to Twitter, where they alleged that by calling his death suicide, Wikipedia was covering up Rajput's murder!
