The message says that Whatsapp has introduced communication rules and guidelines. And this comes at a time when Whatsapp has filed a petition in the Delhi high court against the new IT rules which requires the social media platforms to have a new traceability method. This has made the people believe the forwarded messages to be true without any fact check.
The messages claim that the user's call will be recorded and all the social media platforms of individuals will be monitored by the government. The fake message further states that the government will take action against any negative messages about the government and any messages related to religious topics will lead to an arrest of an individual. However, all these claims are false and the government has urged the users to not believe such misinformation and indulge in its circulation. The fake viral message has made some unrealistic claims like, all the user's devices will be connected to Ministry.
To debunk such misinformation the government has posted several tweets in the official handle of PIB fact check. The ministry has urged the people to refrain from forwarding such messages without a proper fact check.
