What would you think about the Government's plans to control instant messengers?As all of us are aware, the Indian government is planning to implement the control of law enforcement agencies over the instant messaging apps like WhatsApp and other such IM services. There was a draft for an act which proposes to make citizens bound to show the messages to the law enforcement agencies in plain text format. You are not supposed to delete a WhatsApp message till 90 days from the date of receipt.
Don't you think it is a violation of privacy? Agreed, national security is a matter of utmost importance, but still - having to share a private conversation between, say a husband and wife- won't it amount to be a complete intrusion into one's private space?
I would wish our members can share their views on the topic here.
