The central government said in the Supreme Court, digital media is spreading poisonous hatred and violence
Digital media is spreading poisonous hate ->. The central government in the Supreme Court said on Monday that digital media is spreading poisonous hatred and violence. It is completely uncontrolled and tarnishes the reputation of the people. Filing an affidavit in the Supreme Court, the government said, digital media regulation is also a subject on which the legislature should examine. In a response to a news channel related to the controversial ‘UPSC Jihad’ program of the Muslim community’s infiltration into the civil service, the government said that there is no need for regulation for print and electronic media. If the court still feels that there is a need for regulation, then it should start with digital media. The next hearing will be on Wednesday.
The affidavit filed by the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting before the bench of Justices DY Chandrachud, Justice Indu Malhotra, and Justice KM Joseph stated that the apex court should either be responsible for framing new guidelines for print and electronic media. Leave it to the competent authority or it should first exercise to control digital media. According to the affidavit, if broadcasters and publishers feel that they can be targeted with some material, then they resort to digital media to publish that content. In a previous hearing, the Supreme Court had asked the government how the rules for self-regulation of channels could be strengthened further.
