Govt bans bulk SMSes and MMSes ahead of Ayodhya verdict

Govt bans bulk SMSes and MMSes ahead of Ayodhya verdict

As a measure of abundant caution in the face of Ayodhya verdict, the government on Wednesday banned bulk SMSes and MMSes for three days with immediate effect.

The Ministry of Communications issued the order in consultation with the Ministry of Home Affairs.

The order has been issued to all mobile telecom service providers in the country for "banning all bulk SMSes and MMSes in all service areas with immediate effect for next 72 hours".

The step comes two days before the verdict by the Allahabad High Court on the title suit of Ramjanambhoomi-Babri Masjid dispute on Friday.

The government is apprehensive that some extreme elements may foment trouble by inciting communal passions after the delivery of the judgement.

Earlier in the day, Home Minister P Chidambaram appealed for peace and caution against rushing to any inappropriate conclusion over the judgement.

now the time period have ben extended .

overall it is wrong. 

Excellent expert opinion.


This what is expected from a secular govt. The Sleeping cells of fundamentalists whether it is Hindu or Muslim must be searched out and decimated . Any political , religious , cultural etc etc leaders must be refrained from making any Hate Speech in any place . They must be asked to stay in one place till Ayodhya verdict is out and over.
