extremism’ in Kashmir
India’s government has banned 14 mobile apps over security concerns that officials say are not represented in India and could be used to “contact extremist activities” in its administered Kashmir.
According to local Indian media reports, intelligence agencies have reported that these apps are being used for terrorist propaganda through messaging in the Kashmir Valley.
Indian news agency ANI quoted government officials as saying that “extremists” in Pakistan were using these mobile apps to communicate with their supporters and overground workers in Kashmir.
According to him, ‘secret agencies were keeping an eye on the communication channels between the overground workers and the terrorists. During a similar tracking, the agencies found that the representatives of these particular mobile apps were not in India and it was difficult to trace the activities on the apps.
