ISLAMABAD: The federal government on Friday decided to tighten the noose around those individuals using digital platforms for character assassination and harassment and posting ‘unethical’ content on social media.
Chairing a meeting, Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah directed the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) DG to launch a crackdown on cybercriminals.
The minister made it clear that nobody would be allowed to tarnish anybody’s image on social media through derogatory content. He said the immoral and offensive content on social media threatened to create anarchy and degradation in society.
A working group was also constituted to make amendments to Peca 2016.
