Counter Insurgency Kashmir (CIK) has detained a social media user for uploading hateful and abusive content against the martyrs of the security forces in Srinagar. The Instagram user, identified as Irfan Malik, was found posting disrespectful posts about the martyred DSP of J&K Police, Humayun Bhat, who lost his life along with two army officers in an encounter with terrorists in Kokernag, Anantnag.
Preliminary analysis of Malik’s social media handles revealed that he was also uploading content that glorified terrorism, threatened security forces, and used derogatory language. The officials took quick action to detain him for his inflammatory posts.
Irfan Malik, 43 years old, is employed as an operator in JustDial and is the son of Abdu Rashid Malik from 29 Chotta Bazaar, Srinagar.
This incident highlights the importance of responsible use of social media and the consequences it can have when used to spread hateful and abusive content. Social media platforms have become a powerful tool for communication and expression, but it is essential to use them responsibly and ethically.
The Indian government has been actively monitoring social media activities to identify and prevent the spread of misinformation, hate speech, and glorification of terrorism. Such actions are necessary to ensure the well-being and security of the nation.
It is crucial for individuals to be aware of the laws and regulations surrounding social media usage and to exercise caution while expressing their opinions online. Disrespectful and abusive behavior towards soldiers who sacrifice their lives for the safety of the country should not be tolerated.
