California, Jun 30: Online video-sharing platform YouTube on Monday banned several prominent channels, including those belonging to Stefan Molyneux and Richard Spencer.

The company banned six channels for repeatedly violating YouTube's policies.

According to The Verge, other channels banned include American Renaissance (with its associated channel AmRen Podcasts) and the channel for Spencer's National Policy Institute.

YouTube began taking stern measures on supremacist channels in June 2019.

"We have strict policies prohibiting hate speech on YouTube, and terminate any channel that repeatedly or egregiously violates those policies," the Verge quoted a YouTube spokesperson as saying.

"After updating our guidelines to better address supremacist content, we saw a 5x spike in video removals and have terminated over 25,000 channels for violating our hate speech policies," the spokesperson added.

New Delhi, Jan 2: Shah Rukh Khan fans are jumping with joy and excitement today and why not, they have every reason to celebrate. The superstar, on Saturday, announced in his New Year-special post that his fans will see him "on the big screen in 2021," sort of confirming his new project Pathan. The actor, in a 3-minute-and-15-second long video, wished his fans a happy New Year and shared that his post arrived late because he shot and edited the clip all by himself as his team wasn't available. Shah Rukh Khan started the clip with this message: "Hi everybody, it is that time of the year again where the old year is on its way out and the New Year is waiting at the entrance. Actually, it has entered because I am late in conveying my wishes to all of you."

"I am sure 2020 has been the worst of years for everybody. In these awful times, for most it is difficult to find a ray of hope and positivity. But I have a way of looking at bad days, difficult times, and awful years. I believe when one is at the lowest, at the most bottom-est of their life, the good thing is there is only one way to move - upwards, higher to better places. So, 2020 whatever it has been is in the past now. 2021 is going to be bigger, better, brighter and more beautiful," he added.

The actor also made the clip more entertaining by adding some "cheesy New Year effects" and some advice on partying. "2020 has taught us one thing. That real fun is with real people. Your family, your friends, your loved ones and all the friends and enemies you make virtually. Taking sides and fighting online is good fun, time pass but it is not for keeps. So, here's wishing you all in 2021 a lot of happiness, joy and peace. Do I sound like some cheap greeting card? So, let me add some tax paid cash too. So that your dreams and bills are fulfilled...Go party hard, but not too hard in moderation. Don't get too drunk, don't take off your clothes and run on the street, because chances are you'll get arrested and even worse you will wake up in the morning and realize you have lost your phone and that really sucks."

Shah Rukh Khan signed off his clip by saying: "See you all on the big screen in 2021."

Speaking on the issue of rapes in India and how to reduce such crimes against women, Bollywood actor Kangana Ranaut on Saturday said that India needs to set some strong examples and follow something like Saudi Arabia-model which, she claims, is that those who commit crimes against women are hanged to death in public.  

"We still have the old legal system where cases enter files and the process goes on for years. Also the victim is often subjected to harassment as the burden of proving the allegation lies on the victim," she told ANI.

She also said that half of the complaints get registered and the rest get away with the crimes.

"India needs to set four or five examples like that of Saudi Arabia where the perpetrators are hanged to death at intersections," Kangana said.  

The actress also added that the current legal system adds further harassment for the victim as she is often asked to narrate the incident in details.

"Such crimes are committed even in case of silly disagreements because it is easy to get away with them," she said.
