Centre bans Pakistani YouTube channels

Date: 24 January 2022 Tags: Bills & Laws
  • The Union Ministry of Information and Broadcasting ordered a ban on 35 YouTube channels, two websites, two Twitter accounts, two Instagram accounts and one Facebook account that were operating from Pakistan.
  • The channels spread “anti-India” content with a focus on the Indian armed forces, Jammu and Kashmir, India’s foreign relations, and public order, which attracted the provision of Section 69-A of the Information Technology Act, 2000.
  • The blocked channels included ‘Khabar with Facts’, ‘Global Truth’, ‘Information Hub’, ‘ApniDuniya TV’ and ‘Khoji TV’. The blocked sites were White News and DNow, whose YouTube channels were also blocked.
