ISLAMABAD (92 News) - The government has decided to launch a crack down against harassment on social media.

While chairing a high level meeting in Islamabad on Friday to review cases of harassment of citizens on social media, Minister for Interior Rana Sanaullah said that strict action will be taken against elements maligning people through immoral videos on social media. “Presence of immoral and offensive content on social media creates anarchy and corruption in the society.”

Rana Sanaullah directed the authorities concerned to adopt zero tolerance policy against those violating moral values in the society. The meeting decided to make effective laws on cybercrime.

It also approved formation of a working group to make necessary amendments in PECA 2016 on the issue of defamation through harassment and immorality.
