8 YouTube channels banned for spreading disinformation about India


Eight YouTube channels - that had an overall viewership of over 114 crore - have been banned by the government for spreading disinformation. Of the total news channels, seven are from India and one is based out of Pakistan.

“Fake anti-India content was being monetised by the blocked channels,” the ministry of information and broadcasting said in a statement.

The channels were spreading misinformation regarding India’s national security, foreign relations and public order, the government said.
