Home Minister’s Statement on Net Restrictions

“We are only taking strict action against those accounts or people which are causing damage or spreading rumours. We are not taking action against other accounts, be it on Facebook, Twitter or even SMSes. There is no censorship at all. We decided on taking action because there were pictures of Myanmar etc. online, which were disturbing the atmosphere here in India.”
