The Centre has said that rumours that triggered panic among people of northeastern states in Karnataka, Tamil Nadu and Maharashtra were sourced from Pakistan. Union Home Secretary RK Singh said in New Delhi, Pakistan is the source for doctored pictures that sparked violence in Mumbai and led to the exodus from Bangalore.
He said, India will take up the issue with Pakistan. Mr. Singh said in New Delhi that 74 websites were identified and blocked where morphed images were uploaded. He said bulk of these images were uploaded in Pakistan. Mr. Singh said 34 more websites have been identified and Government was in the process of blocking them soon.
Government has already imposed a 15-day ban on bulk SMSs and MMSs.
The Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi has also said that he suspected from the very beginning that foreign forces were behind the rumours which forced thousands of people of northeast to flee Karnataka and some other cities. Gogoi said the state intelligence had inputs about this information.
The Ministry of Home Affairs has found out that a majority of the doctored MMS clips and threatening SMSes originated in Pakistan.
