New Delhi: On the spying dispute, the Modi government of the Center has asked WhatsApp to reply by November 4. Former national president of Congress Rahul Gandhi has also jumped into this whole controversy. He taunted Modi government by tweeting. He has said that seeking answers from WhatsApp on spying of people of India is exactly the same as PM Modi's question to DOS who asked who earned money on Rafale fighter jets deal.
Actually, WhatsApp was stirred up by the revelations in which it said that Spyware Pegasus was active in India and was also spying on people here. WhatsApp told that Indian journalists and human right activists were the targets of this espionage. On this whole matter, the Ministry of Information Technology has asked WhatsApp to give a detailed reply by November 4. On Thursday, Facebook-owned WhatsApp reported that Israeli spyware Pegasus was spying on Indian journalists and human rights activists.
On this matter, the Ministry of Home Affairs said that the allegations of violation of privacy on the government are baseless. By doing this, an attempt has been made to tarnish the image of the government. At the same time, the Ministry has said that the government is committed to protecting the privacy and strict action will be taken if found guilty. The Ministry of Home Affairs has said that some statements have come to light on the basis of reports related to breach of privacy of Indian citizens on WhatsApp. These attempts to discredit the Government of India are completely wrong.
