Facebook-owned WhatsApp which is under fire for its platform being used to spread misinformation , rumours , provocation and even resulting in mob Lynching  has now in apparent damage control wrote to the IT Ministry saying the company is horrified by terrible acts of violence.

This reaction comes after the  Indian government expressed its  unhappiness  of  the misuse of its platform for repeated circulation of provocative content leading to  law and order problems.

It may be recalled that the IT Ministry  has now asked WhatsApp to take immediate action and ensure that the platform is not used for such malafide activities.

“Thank you for your letter dated July 2. like the Government of India, we’re horrified by these terrible acts of violence and wanted to respond quickly to the very important issues you have raised. We believe this is a challenge that requires government, civil society and technology companies to work together,” WhatsApp said in the letter sent to the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY).
