The Government of India always keeps a close watch on YouTube channels and other social media related to Fake News. Right now many YouTube channels have been banned for spreading fake news and information. This list includes 10 Indian and 6 Pakistani YouTube channels. Let us tell you that earlier this month, the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting had banned 22 channels on YouTube which included 18 in India and 4 Pakistani YouTube channels.
Indian government blocked 16 youtube channels
Explaining the reason for the ban, PIB said, “It has been observed that these channels have been used to spread fake news on social media on matters related to national security, India’s foreign relations, communal harmony and public order in the country.” No digital news publisher had furnished the required information to the Ministry under Rule 18 of the IT Rules, 2021.”
The government has stated “content published by certain YouTube channels in India refers to a community as terrorist, and incites hatred among members of different religious communities. The potential was found to disturb public order.” In addition, the PIB also said that several Indian YouTube channels are publishing “unverified news and videos that create hatred among different sections of the society.”
Saini Education Research, Hindi Mein Dekho, Technical Yogendra, Aaj te news, SBB News, Defense News24x7, The study time, Latest Update, MRF TV LIVE and Tahaffuz-E-Deen India banned for spreading false news against India Is.
AjTak Pakistan, Reality Checks, Discover Point, Kaiser Khan, The Voice of Asia and Bol Media Bol have been banned by the government who were spreading false anti-India news.
