Preparation for action against those who fuel terrorist conspiracies on internet media

Those who fuel the conspiracy of terrorists and separatists in Kashmir through internet media will no longer be spared. The Jammu and Kashmir Police will tighten the unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA) around the neck of such ‘white-collar terrorists’. To avoid this, the police have also issued a warning. People on the Internet have been asked not to do any such work, which encourages and supports anti-national activities and violence in Kashmir. Under UAPA, the police or any investigative agency can take the accused into custody.

The J&K Police has been taking action earlier by identifying the mischievous elements active on the internet media, but it was based on a specific complaint. Or it used to happen when the police took cognizance of a serious matter on its own. In these cases, most of the accused used to be booked under the IT Act itself, but now this will not happen. Jammu and Kashmir Police spokesperson said that some white-collar terrorists are active on internet media. They are called white collars because they do not indulge in violence and directly break the law. Among them can be students, businessmen, businessmen, government officials and employees and so-called intellectuals.

They do not express their comments or reactions to the situation in Kashmir on the Internet media but share provocative material, photographs, posters and statements available from various sources. Posters and statements of terrorist organizations go viral. Their motive behind these is to incite the feelings of a particular class and damage the country’s unity and integrity. They act as spokespersons on the Internet media for terrorists. They try to teach jihadi mentality among the people. Therefore, strict action is necessary against them.

The police have also launched a campaign to make people aware. Some such material has been published on the Internet media, which people should avoid. In one of the pictures, people have been asked not to allow any outsider to stay in their area. The second picture is about a labourer from Bihar killed by terrorists about two months ago. The third picture is of the terrorist organization United Liberation Front Kashmir poster. It mentions the killing and intimidation of police personnel in Srinagar. In this, it has been told about the resignation of police personnel from the job. The police have written with these pictures that sharing such posters and messages is a way to increase violence.

“Some people sit in comfortable rooms and spread false news and rumours on the situation in Kashmir. Some incite minors to become terrorists. This step is being taken only to maintain peace and order in Kashmir and prevent the youth of Kashmir from going on the path of destruction”, Vijay Kumar, IGP, Kashmir Range.

Centre extends COVID-19 restrictions till February 28

On Thursday, the Central Government extended the existing COVID-related restrictions until February 28 because of the rising COVID-19 and Omicron variants.

Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) issued the order directing all the states and the Union Territories (UTs) to instruct their local and district administrations to promptly take containment measures against the threat of the Omicron variant based on their assessment of the situation.

Taking evidence-based COVID-19 containment measures at the district and local level, as conveyed by the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MoHFW), the MHA order mentioned that COVID restrictions “will remain in force till February 28, 2022.”

“In exercise of the powers, conferred under Section 10(2)(1) of the Disaster Management Act 2005, the undersigned hereby directs that the Order of the Ministry of Home Affairs’ of even number dated December 27, 2021, to ensure compliance to the normative framework for taking evidence-based COVID-19 containment measures at district and local level, as conveyed vide Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MoHFW) dated December 21, 2021, will remain in force up to February 28, 2022,” the order mentioned.

According to the Union Health Ministry data updated on Thursday, the order was issued when India logged 2,86,384 new coronavirus infections, taking the total tally of COVID-19 cases to 40,371,500.
As per the order, containment measures have been extended to February 28.

“Due to the current COVID wave, led by the new variant, Omicron, there has been a steady increase in the number of COVID cases in the country and the active cases have increased to over 22 lakhs. Though a majority of active cases are recovering fast and a low percentage of cases are in hospitals, it is still a matter of concern that 407 districts in 34 States and UTs are reporting a positivity rate of more than 10 per cent,” the order said.

Therefore, looking at the current trends of the COVID virus, the order said there is a need to exercise caution and vigilance.

Against this background, the order issued by Home Secretary Ajay Bhalla said, “I would like to reiterate that all the states/UTs must observe all precautions and not let the guard down”.

“Based on the normative framework, mentioned in the MoHFW dated December 21, 2021, and assessment of the situation, local/district administration should continue to take prompt and appropriate containment measures.”

The order directs “imposition and lifting of local curbs or restrictions dynamic and based on the case positivity and hospitalisation status at the local level”.

It also emphasised that there should be a continued focus on the five-fold strategy– Test-Track-Treat-Vaccination and adherence to COVID Appropriate Behaviour.

“The state enforcement machinery should strictly enforce the norms of COVID Appropriate Behaviour– wearing of face masks and maintaining safe social distancing in all public areas/gatherings,” the order further reads.

Further, states and UTs are advised to continue holding regular media briefings to disseminate the right information and discourage any misinformation on new variants of concern.

It is also urged to issue necessary directions to the districts and all other local authorities concerned to take the measures required for prompt and effective management of COVID-19, strict compliance with various advisories issued by the MoHFW on the new VOC and strict enforcement of COVID Appropriate Behaviour.
