Because of the video scandal! Center may take action against Twitter

Because of the video scandal!  The Center may take action against Twitter as the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology has warned social media platforms to comply with new IT norms.  Circulation of videos that 'may cause law and order problems' is not permitted under the law', the government warned.

Center orders to stop sharing nude videos of two women in Manipur.  Twitter and other social media platforms have been ordered to comply with the directive immediately.  State-politics stir in Manipur video case.  Meanwhile, Chief Justice of India DY Chandrachud said, 'This incident in Manipur is the biggest indication of constitutional abuse... If the government does not take action, the apex court will be forced to intervene'.  The Supreme Court on Thursday expressed deep concern over the public sexual harassment of two women in Manipur.  A bench headed by Chief Justice of India DY Chandrachud explained the importance of the incident to Attorney General R Venkataramani and Solicitor General Tushar Mehta and said the court would give some time to the government to deal with the situation in Manipur, failing which the court would be forced to intervene.

Meanwhile, in a letter written to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the Chief Minister of Manipur on the Manipur video scandal, Delhi Commission for Women chief Swati Maliwal raised three demands.  These include immediate action to stop the violence in Manipur, strict action against the people seen in the video and permission to meet the women's families, the letter said.  In the letter, Swati Maliwal also wrote, 38 parties have met for the NDA meeting but I want to ask, did any representative of any party even ask the Prime Minister a question about why Manipur is burning?  Manipur has a dual engine government.  Why is BJP unable to provide security to the citizens of the state?  Manipur is burning and BJP leaders are meeting in five-star hotels'.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi gave his first reaction on the Manipur violence on Thursday.  Speaking about the video of naked sexual harassment of two women in Manipur, the Prime Minister said, 'Such an incident is very painful.  The incident is shameful for any civil society.'  He also said, 'No rapist will be spared.  We have to rise above politics to protect women'.  Already, one person has been arrested in the video incident and the investigation of the incident is going on, said the Chief Minister of the state.  Amidst all this, the central government has issued an order on Twitter and other social media platforms to ensure and implement immediate measures to prevent the sharing of videos of nude sexual harassment of two women in Manipur.
