New Delhi, Jan 09 (ANI): Indian Army Chief General Bipin Rawat warned against spread of misinformation and fake news being a cause of funding for terrorism and said that the social media must be curbed to ensure prevention of radicalisation through such platforms. “A lot of people are getting radicalized and if they have funds available with them, they are also able to muster funds and give it for supporting terrorist activities. So the Biggest issue is social media curb on itself to ensure that radicalisation does not happen through misinformation or false news that has been spreading around. The international media should first get together to ensure that the source of social media is prevented from spreading false news. Radicalisation through social media is also becoming one of the causes for raising funds by terrorists’ organizations”, he said.
