New Delhi: The Union Ministry of Information Technology has sent notices to all social media platforms in the country asking for certain information under the new law. It asks for the company name, website, application details and details of the officers in India in the related services. WhatsApp has challenged the same legal framework in the Delhi High Court. He cited citizens because of this law The right to privacy (Right to privacy). However, the central government has made it clear that the right to privacy is a fundamental right and is not intended to be violated (the Modi government has issued a notice asking for information on all social media in India).

Disclosure by the Ministry of Information Technology, Central Government
Responding to the petition, the Central Government said, “The right to privacy is a constitutional right. The government does not intend to infringe on the right to privacy. But the country needs WhatsApp to provide the source of a dangerous message. WhatsApp is required to provide the source of messages related to national security, foreign relations and any type of crime. ”
The Center has violated the right to privacy and WhatsApp is running directly to the High Court
The Modi government at the Center has amended the Information Technology Act to make it mandatory for WhatsApp to provide information on the origin of messages. WhatsApp went directly to the Delhi High Court against this. WhatsApp has questioned the Centre’s decision, saying the Centre’s decision violates its right to privacy.
WhatsApp says its message chat service is end-to-end encrypted, and we do not store the sender and recipient of the message. WhatsApp said in the application that asking to be tracked in a WhatsApp chat is equivalent to tracking all messages. This would violate end-to-end encryption. This would reduce citizens’ right to privacy. ”
“Civil society organizations and experts around the world oppose the laws that infringe on WhatsApp users’ privacy. We work together to find a practical solution to this problem.
The new IT law will violate many things
WhatsApp said that the new rules of the Union Ministry of Information Technology would be detrimental to the interests of the country and other provisions of the law by revealing the true messenger identity of the message.
WhatsApp, which violates the Center’s right to privacy, goes directly to the High Court, the government
