Release social media platforms in govt custody: Herath to Mangala


JVP Propaganda Secretary Vijitha Herath has urged Media Minister Mangala Samaraweera to release the social media platforms from the government custody.

In a letter addressed on behalf of the JVP to Media Minister Mangala Samaraweera, Vijitha Herath has stated that the ban on Facebook must be lifted.

He continued that the government did not take any measures to curb 'hate speech' on Facebook, at the outset. When the things got out of control, the government went on to ban social media. Had they nipped the issue of hate speech and online abuse in the bud, the recent developments would not have occurred. The ban on Facebook would make a severe negative impact on industries like IT, Tourism and advertising. The ban on messaging platforms has prevented Sri Lankan expatriates from contacting their family members.
