Here is what the government says:
Following the first founder is only the last step
The department has clarified that the clause in which WhatsApp has raised the issue is not the first step. When all other remedies appear to be ineffective, only this route will be followed in accordance with the law.
Why the knowledge of the original founder is important
The institute said that punishing a person who started committing violent crimes such as rape benefits the community. “We can’t deny how it happened in the case of headaches and riots and so on. Repeated WhatsApp messages are still being distributed and its content is already in public. So the role of who came up is very important,” the government said.
WhatsApp needs to find a solution
The department on Wednesday said the debate on whether secrecy would be maintained was negative. WhatsApp must obtain a technical solution by encryption or otherwise in order to maintain the privacy and information required to ensure public order and national security can also be accessed by the government.
Services will not be affected
None of these measures proposed by India will affect the normal functioning of WhatsApp in any way in any way and even for ordinary users, it will not have an impact, the center said.
