Ganderbal : In a bid to maintain public order and security, the District Administration Ganderbal on Wednesday issued a stern warning against the dissemination of incendiary messages and propaganda by citizens on social media platforms.
The administration appealed to the public to refrain from ‘preparing,’ ‘posting,’ ‘uploading,’ or propagating incendiary content that glorifies terrorist actions or promotes separatist ideologies.
Such misuse of social media is deemed detrimental to the state’s security and the maintenance of law and order.
Citizens are directed to abstain from ‘posting’ or ‘uploading’ such content within the jurisdiction of District Ganderbal.
In the event of receiving messages propagating terrorism, secessionism, or communally sensitive material, individuals are urged to promptly report such instances, along with screenshots and details, to the nearest police station or police post.
In cases where individuals inadvertently share such content, the administration advises immediate retrieval of messages, followed by a clarification to contacts or groups.
As a precautionary measure, any such incidents should be reported to the nearest police station or police post.
The District Administration emphasizes the responsibility of citizens to report messages or posts propagating terrorism or secessionism, even if not downloaded, to ensure the collective safety of the community.
Remaining a member of social media groups with inappropriate content may raise presumptions unless individuals opt out or report such groups to the police authorities. Failure to disassociate from such groups may be presumed as an endorsement of the content shared, implying complicity.
The District Administration encourages proactive engagement from citizens in maintaining a secure and harmonious community.
General public is also urged to report such messages/content to the district Control Room (0194-2416260, 0194-241626, WhatsApp 91 84938 68773).
