As it continued to block web pages and social media accounts allegedly used to spread hate messages, the government Monday said it would confront Islamabad with evidence to prove much of this mischievous online content was being uploaded from Pakistan.
Islamabad had rejected as "baseless and unfounded" New Delhi's allegation that its online community was involved in spreading hatred in India through morphed images and videos. But Home Secretary R K Singh said Monday that India was ready to share all evidence it had to back its belief.
An official source said Google and Facebook had told the government that most web pages and links that it had blocked were outside "Indian jurisdiction", meaning their content had been uploaded from outside India. According to this source, Facebook has confirmed that every such link, barring two, had originated outside the country.
Twitter was yet to respond to Indian requests to pull out offensive content, the government said.
The government Monday ordered the blocking of 89 more web pages and user accounts, taking the total number of pages blocked to 245. One person in Maharashtra and three in Bangalore have been arrested for spreading rumours that triggered panic among people from the Northeast. Police were looking for four other offenders in Bangalore and one in Maharashtra, home ministry sources said. Some people in Delhi, Agra and Mumbai were also under watch, they said.
A team of senior officials from several ministries will visit relief camps in Assam beginning tomorrow.
