Recently India was in the news for frequent internet shut-downs. Explain how the internet and social media could be used for subversive activities and how was it used for anti-national activities. Suggest the ways to deal with this threat. (15 Marks)

Mentor’s comment:

  • In the intro, briefly state how the internet could be used as a potential weapon by the anti-national elements.
  • In the main body explain the modus-operandi of those who seek to leverage the internet for furthering their goals. Also, cite the example of meddling in the American Presidential elections by the use of social media. In the case of India cite the case of use of social media by ISIS to radicalize the youth. Also, explain how such activities challenge the security of the country.
  • In suggestions, policies like using the technology itself to detect such moves, educating the people about the threats of these elements on the internet, etc can be cited.
