UP Police Record Calls

The verdict in Ayodhya Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid case came today. Being a communally sensitive issue section 144 has been imposed all over Uttar Pradesh and parts of India as well. Such incidents also facilitate the spread of fake news.

Recently, a message on Facebook is being circulated, which warns people and tells them to take precautionary measures while using phones to call as well as social media. There is a list of twelve pointers:

  1. All calls will be recorded
  2. All calls will be saved
  3. WhatsApp, Twitter, Facebook and other Social Media will be monitored
  4. Inform the ones who don’t know
  5. Your devices will be connected to Government systems
  6. Do not send a wrong message to anyone
  7. Make sure you and your loved ones operate your own social media accounts
  8. If you receive any offensive post on Ayodhya, Political Situation or the Prime Minister, do not forward them
  9. Do not write any instigating post against any religion. The police are liable to arrest you without a warrant if the law is broken
  10. The police will then remove a notification, and then an action for Cyber Crime will be taken on you.

  12. Do not send any wrong messages. Inform everyone and keep this in mind.
