Report by Dainik Bhaskar ‘5-yr jail for posting disputed posts online’; is misleading, govt clarifies

The government has issued a clarification after a Hindi newspaper recently published an article with the headline ‘5 years in jail for posting disputed posts on social media’.

“This provision has been made for contentious content on the sovereignty, integrity, security of the state, friendly relations with foreign countries and another important subject,” it stated. This claim is misleading.
