 - Sakshi Post

The central government on Thursday ordered the blocking of eight YouTube channels for allegedly spreading misinformation related to India's national security, foreign relations, and public order. 
The blocked YouTube channels had over 114 crore views and 85.73 lakh subscribers and the content was being monetized, an official statement from the ministry said. 

The channels blocked under the Information Technology Rules-2021 include seven Indian news channels. These channels made false claims such as the demolition of religious structures by the Government of India ban on the celebration of religious festivals, and declaration of religious war in India, an official statement said.

"Such content was found to have the potential to create communal disharmony and disturb public order in the country," it said. It said the YouTube channels were also used to post fake news on various subjects such as the Indian Armed Forces, Jammu, and Kashmir.
