The Indian government has blocked more than 80 internet pages and user-accounts on social networking sites including Facebook, Twitter and Google to avoid hosting inflammatory hateful content, spreading rumors and inciting violence targeting North-eastern people.

The government has also banned 76 internet sites that triggered bulk rumors and panic among people of North-east in south-Indian states of Karnataka, Tamil Nadu and Maharashtra.

The Indian Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde said that Pakistan-based hardline group suspected to have been involved in doctoring images and spreading them across social networking to create panic and to divide India. Pakistan has rejected Indian actuation and asked for New Delhi to provide evidence in this regard.

“We totally reject these allegations and insinuations. They are totally baseless and unfounded. Such unsubstantiated statements are not very helpful in creating a conducive environment necessary for improving the relationship between our two countries,” he was quoted as saying by The News.[/box_dark]
