Govt orders blocking of apps, website and social media accounts linked to SFJ

The Ministry of Information & Broadcasting on Tuesday issued an order to block apps, websites, and social media accounts of foreign-based Punjab Politics TV having close links with Sikhs For Justice (SFJ).

The news: The organization has been declared unlawful under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, 1967.

What they are saying: Relying on intelligence inputs that the channel was attempting to use online media to disturb public order during the ongoing State Assembly Elections, the Ministry used emergency powers under the IT Rules on 18th February to block the digital media resources of Punjab Politics TV.

  • The contents of the blocked apps, website, and social media accounts had the potential to incite communal disharmony and separatism; and were found to be detrimental to the sovereignty and integrity of India, security of the State, and public order, the government said in a statement. 
  • It was also observed that the launch of new apps and social media accounts was timed to gain traction during the ongoing elections.
  • The Government of India remains vigilant and committed to secure the overall information environment in India and thwart any actions having the potential to undermine India’s sovereignty and integrity.
