WhatsApp family groups can be really annoying all the time sometimes, but if you’re an Indian you know what to expect if you ever leave the group. The family is sacrosanct and the influence of social media is such that the family members equate leaving the WhatsApp family group to leaving your family. A brave woman committed this blasphemous act and left her family WhatsApp group one fine day, tired of all the fake news, distasteful and insensitive jokes.
Namaah, an author and illustrator by profession, shared a screenshot of her bravery on Twitter and no surprise that it went viral. Namaah left her family WhatsApp group with a message so relatable that people want to ‘copy it and use it appropriately’. So, after her courageous move, she’s obviously been patted on the back (on Twitter) and people cannot help expressing how inspired they felt after reading her message
In today's personal victory, I quit my extended-family WhatsApp group. I cannot fully express the relief I feel. pic.twitter.com/E02iXtbLvh

More power 2 u, girl. I quit my family WhatsApp group a year ago 4 similar reasons. It is liberating & at d same time made some of my cousins 2 rethink their political/social beliefs. & then I've had few of d best conversations with them privately abt d issues u talk of. Kudos.
