Indonesia threatens to ban Google and Twitter over extremist content issue

Increasing extreme content on Google and Twitter and spread of terrorist messages through encrypted messaging app such as Telegram and Whatsapp has forced Indonesian Government to issue notice to these companies to monitor such contents else they will be banned in the country.

Both the companies have agreed to make better policing of such contents and will be working with 100 of NGO who will flag such contents and videos on their websites, The Wall Street Journal reported.

WSJ quoted Information Technology Minister Rudiantara as "The step taken shows our seriousness in clamping down on negative content."

It has been found that many self made jihadist have accepted to be inspired after reading such contents and many have learned to make bombs after viewing the process on videos available on the internet.

Through this new initiative, Indonesian Government also wants to target and catch all those involved in posting & fueling religious divisions and those deemed to promote the use of illegal narcotics.
