WhatsApp has filed a complaint against the Government of India.
WhatsApp has reached the court against the new IT rules of the Government of India. The company has filed an application in the Delhi High Court on May 25 against this rule.
Facebook-owned messaging app WhatsApp (WhatsApp) has reached the court against the new IT rules of the Government of India. In the new rules, WhatsApp and similar companies will have to keep track of the origin of the message sent on their messaging app, ie from where the message was sent first. Against this rule, the company has filed an application in the Delhi High Court on 25 May. According to a Reuters report, a WhatsApp spokesperson gave information in this regard, saying, ‘Telling the messaging app to keep a trace of chat in this way would be like keeping an eye on all the messages sent on WhatsApp, which is end-to-end. Will eliminate encryption and violate people’s ‘right to privacy’. The company has also said that, ‘In the meantime, we will continue to negotiate with the Government of India to keep people safe, including responding to the legally sought legal request for any information.’
