Punjab Government and Punjab Police are tirelessly working to eradicate problem of gun culture from the state. They are taking various steps to put a ban on activities through which guns and weapons are being brandished. Punjab police have also put a ban on giving provocative speeches and uploading photos and videos with weapons on social media and strict action is being taken against those who do this. FIRs and cases are being registered against those people who have objectionable content put up on their social media pages.
In latest development of march to eradicate gun culture from Punjab, DGP Gaurav Yadav through his Twitter handle has released an information that everyone should be aware of. He stated in his tweet that people are requested to remove objectionable content from their social media handles within the next 72 hours. He further wrote that CM has directed no FIR against people will be registered for next 3 days as this much time period will be given to them to remove all content related to guns or weapons.
DGP Punjab wrote, “appeal to Everyone to voluntarily remove any objectionable content from their Social Media handles in the next 72 hours. CM Punjab has directed that no FIRs for glorifying weapons will be registered for the next 3 days in Punjab to allow people to remove content on their own.”
Prior to this many people faced trouble due to their uploaded content on social media platforms that was objectionable. The famous Kulhad Pizza Couple of Jalandhar got a case registered against themselves for making a reel with gun. The couple then put up a video clarifying that gun shown in video is not real but a toy gun. They further added, “we haven’t violated any rules. The video made was just for purpose of entertainment.”
FIR against 10-year-old was registered on Friday when his father posted a picture of him on Facebook in which he standing with a gun and wearing a belt of bullets on his shoulders.
Post all these incidents government has now decided to provide 3 days’ time period to people to remove objectionable content if any from their social media handles.
