Now, paramilitary forces asked to ban Facebook

By IndianMandarins- 15 Jul 2020


The Ministry of Home Affairs has sent a letter to all paramilitary forces including CRPF, ITBP, BSF, CISF, ITBP and NSG, asking them to ban Facebook in forces as well as for ex-servicemen as they remain in touch with armed forces.

The MHA sent a communication after getting an e-mail from Minister of State for Home G Kishan Reddy asking to extend the ban of foreign apps in paramilitary forces as well.

Another message which initiated the procedure said, "The ban should be extended to the entire force like CRPF, ITBP and ex-servicemen too because they are generally in touch with our armed forces. Ideally, India should have our own app like Facebook or Instagram to which no foreign country should have access," the e-mail said.
