Ravi Shankar Prasad: Government devising measures to control pornography threat 

On Wednesday, Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said central government along with the State police are working together to restrict the threat of pornography.

While speaking in the Lok Sabha, Kalyan Banerjee, AITC, Serampore (West Bengal) raised a question-- if the government has developed any mechanism to find out if any fake news is being published, printed or child pornography being circulated, if so then how many cases have been detected and in how many cases the punishment has been granted.

Reverting to it, Prasad said that measures are being taken in view to control the threat of pornography and the entire country needs to understand this threatening issue.

In the Lok Sabha, Prasad said, "Pornography, particularly child pornography is a serious menace. We are taking a lot of measures. Central government, State governments, and State Police are working together to curb it."

"In the case of child pornography and abuse of social media for this propagation, we are also taking lots of measures. The entire country also needs to understand this menace. Not only this but revenge porn is rising in the country. These are the issues which the society, the country, the polity and the parliament have to work together," he added.
