Home Ministry Has Not Made Sharing Coronavirus Messages A Punishable Offence
Recently fake news is being viral stating that the posting of anything regarding coronavirus in social media is declared to be punishable by the central government of India. Which is completely fake.
This message is being viral saying that, the Principal secretary of the ministry of home affairs Ravi Nayak has declared this news. You will be wonder knowing that, there is no such person called Ravi Nayak working in the Ministry of Home Affairs.
There is a news media website called “BOOM” that got this fake news and they talked to the Ministry of Home Affairs about this matter. They said that this is a completely fake message, and there is no-one called Ravi Nayak working in the Ministry of Home Affairs. They completely denied this news, said this is fake. We have not made any decisions like this.
The viral message says that “All honorable members of the group are informed that right now any post related to Coronavirus has been declared a punishable offense by the Central Government, only a government agency can post on Corona.”
Besides this, this news is also got viral in facebook
We have also checked the official website of the Ministry of Home Affairs, there we have not found the name called Ravi Nayak anywhere.
At last this is humble request to all of you readers please do not share anything fake on the social media.
In this hard time this is our responsibility to stay strong and be aware of all fake news.
