‘Concern over radicalisation of youths through social media’

Serious concern was expressed on Friday over radicalisation of youths through social media and other online forums during a high-level meeting of country’s top police brass which was attended by Prime Minister Nadrendra Modi.

After the inauguration, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh said the activities of dreaded terrorist group ISIS have been witnessed in India and there is concern over radicalisation of youths through social media and other online forums.

Singh also said the ISIS has been trying to enhance its foothold in India’s neighbourhood –in Bangladesh and Afghanistan.

“It is a fact that the ISIS activities have increased globally and India is not isolated from it. Besides, there are problems of radicalisation of youths through social media and other online forums,” he said and sought concerted efforts to tackle the problem.

He was speaking at the annual three-day conference of Directors General of Police and Inspectors General of Police being organised by the Intelligence Bureau.

Referring to Punjab, the Home Minister said external forces were trying to revive the secessionist demand of Khalistan by trying to manipulate people’s sentiment. “But I am sure that people of Punjab will give befitting reply to such evil design,” he said.
