During a press conference, Apurva Chandra, Secretary, Ministry of Information and Broadcasting, said:

“The content posted from these YouTube channels and social media accounts had been viewed around 130 crore times.”

The secretary said that all these accounts were from Pakistan. So they were spreading false news against India by propagating Fake News.

At the same time, Joint Secretary in the ministry Vikram Sahay said that action had been started against these YouTube channels and social media accounts under IT rules.

Under this, 35 YouTube channels, including two Twitter handles, two Instagram handles, two websites, and one Facebook account, have been banned.

“Blocking such accounts is a challenging task, but the ministry is trying its best to prevent anti-India content.”

The names of the two websites that the ministry has blocked are “whiteproductions.com.pk” and “dnowmedia.com.”

Regarding this action, Apurva Chandra told India Today that he had written to social media companies in this regard.
