YouTube Channels and others were banned on January 20 by Union Ministry of Information and Broadcasting
Audio and visual contents are the most effective way to influence people. Such contents can be helpful for providing appropriate information to the people but on the same side it can misguide people because many people are uneducated and unable to distinguish between what is right and wrong but they know how to use the phone. So, watching misleading information can hamper the unity and harmony in the society.
So, Union Ministry of Information and Broadcasting ban – 35 YouTube Channels
2 Twitter Account
2 Instagram Account

These channels and websites are operating from Pakistan and they are spreading Anti – India disinformation.
