Express Explained.Live- What Does Privacy Mean on Social Media? with Smriti Parsheera

This, the government says, is to maintain law and order, ensure national security, and hold foreign entities accountable in India. The platforms have argued that the demands encroach upon fundamental rights of free speech and privacy. Multiple issues are now under litigation.
