गाली गफतौर सोशल मीडिया+ट्विटर पर सख्त हुई केंद्र सरकार

(नईदिल्ली)#सोशलमीडिया पर सरकार हुई सख्त ।
केंद्रीय मंत्री #रविशंकरप्रसाद ने आज #राजयसभा में #ट्विटर और गालिगफ़तौर मीडिया को सीधी चेतावनी दी
सूचना प्रौद्योगिकी (आईटी) मंत्री रविशंकर प्रसाद ने फेसबुक, ट्विटर, व्हाट्सऐप और लिंक्डइन जैसे सोशल मीडिया मंचों को आगाह किया कि अगर उनका उपयोग भारत में झूठी खबरें फैलाने, हिंसा या वैमनस्य को बढ़ावा देने में किया जाता है तो उनके खिलाफ सख्ती की जाएगी।
प्रसाद ने राज्यसभा में शून्यकाल के दौरान विभिन्न पूरक सवालों का जवाब देते हुए कहा कि सरकार सोशल मीडिया का सम्मान करती है और इस मंच से लोग अधिकार संपन्न हुए हैं। उन्होंने कहा कि भारत के डिजिटल इंडिया कार्यक्रम में सोशल मीडिया की अहम भूमिका रही है।
सरकार आलोचना के अधिकार का भी सम्मान करती है लेकिन ऐसे मंचों को देश के संविधान तथा कानूनों का पालन करना होगा। उन्होंने कहा कि अगर सोशल मीडिया के जरिए चुनाव प्रक्रिया को प्रभावित करने की कोशिश की जाती है तो चुनाव आयोग के अलावा सरकार भी कार्रवाई करेगी।
उन्होंने कहा कि पिछले दिनों अमेरिकी संसद भवन में हिंसा और यहां लाल किले में किसानों की ट्रैक्टर परेड के दौरान हिंसा के समय ऐसे मंचों का आचरण विरोधाभासी रहा। उन्होंने कहा कि कई सोशल मीडिया मंचों ने अमेरिका में पुलिस की कार्रवाई का समर्थन किया लेकिन यहां भारत में उलटा रुख अपनाया। उन्होंने कहा कि ऐसा दोहरा मानदंड स्वीकार नहीं किया जा सकता।
प्रसाद ने कहा कि ऐसी कंपनियां भारत में काम करें, पैसे कमाएं लेकिन साथ ही वे संविधान और देश के कानूनों का भी पालन करें।

Assets worth Rs 37,500 crore are expected to be monetised in the next three years.

[New Delhi] BJP Accuses Rahul Gandhi Of Playing In Pakistani Hands
The BJP on Saturday condemned as “shameful and irresponsible” Congress chief Rahul Gandhi remarks against P M Narendra Modi over the Rafale deal, saying no president of any party has ever used such language against a prime minister.

He also ruled out a joint parliamentary committee probe saying it cannot be done to satisfy the ego of an “ill-informed leader”.
Prasad accused Gandhi of “playing into the hands of Pakistan and China” by seeking the details of the Rafale fighter jets.
He also alleged that there was pressure for extraneous considerations and “bribe” for not finalising the Rafale deal during the UPA rule despite holding negotiations for years.
He said Reliance and Dassault had entered into agreement as early as 2012 when UPA was in power.

Triple[Instant]Talaq BILL Introduced in L S: Justice For Women

[New Delhi]Triple [Instant]Talaq Bill Introduced in L S
A bill to make instant triple talaq illegal and void and awarding a jail term of three years for the husband, was introduced in the Lok Sabha today.
Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad introduced the Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Bill, calling it a “historic day” amid opposition to its introduction by members of different parties,
including RJD,
BJD and
All India Muslim League.
The law is about justice and respect for women and is not about any religion or community, he said, adding that the practice of instant triple has continued despite the Supreme Court order terming it void.
Parliament has to decide whether the victims of triple talaq have fundamental rights or not, he said after some oppositionmembers claimed it violated the fundamental rights guaranteed under the Constitution.
The proposed law would only be applicable on instant triple talaq or ‘talaq-e-biddat’ and give power to the victim to approach a magistrate seeking “subsistence allowance” for herself and minor children.
The woman can also seek the custody of her minor children from the magistrate who will take a final call on the issue.
Under the law, instant triple talaq in any form — spoken, in writing or by electronic means such as email, SMS and WhatsApp — would be bad or illegal and void.
According to the proposed law which would be applicable to the entire country except Jammu and Kashmir, giving instant talaq would attract a jail term of three years and a fine. It would be a non-bailable offence.

Hitting back at Gandhi, Union minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said the allegations reflected the Congress leader’s frustration and were an attempt to divert attention from the Agusta Westland probe in which the names of Congress leaders and the “family” were coming up.
He told a press conference at the BJP headquarters.
Addressing a rally in Mehsana in Gujarat, Gandhi alleged that Modi as Gujarat Chief Minister had taken money from Sahara and Birla groups and demanded an independent inquiry.

He was referring to the Supreme Court rejecting a plea for a probe by a special investigation team against Modi on allegations that two companies paid Rs 65 crore to him ahead of the 2014 Lok Sabha polls.
