WhatsApp takes the Indian Government to court over new guidelines

description: WhatsApp has been in the limelight of social media for quite some time. Recently, many great functions have been introduced that are very popular. We managed to find out that recently the messenger was loud due to the privacy policy.
The Indian Ministry of Information and Technology (MeitY) twice sent WhatsApp notice to withdraw its updated privacy policy and provide a "satisfactory reply" within seven days.

 However, WhatsApp itself has now brought the Indian Government to justice. The company has filed a complaint with the Supreme Court of Delhi, challenging the government's new rules that go into effect on May 26, 2021. So what is the lawsuit about? A legal complaint by WhatsApp relates to new laws imposed by the GOI itself that violate privacy rights under the Indian Constitution. With these new guidelines in place, social media companies would have to acknowledge the "first creator of information" if requested by authorities. A report published by Reuters suggests that the new privacy policy would require Facebook's parent company to breach privacy law in India, but we learned that the publication was unable to confirm whether or not the complaint was made by WhatsApp at the Supreme Court of Delhi or not. 

A spokesman for WhatsApp and other experts also declined to comment, given the delicacy of the matter. Will WhatsApp win this battle? While the details of the case have yet to be released, WhatsApp already has expert support. The new guidelines will impact end-to-end encryption services. In fact, it is likely to put an end to such services. This is one of the biggest privacy concerns. Do we really need these rules? WhatsApp itself does not challenge the Indian government interested in the new IT guidelines. There have been reports suggesting other outstanding policy challenges in Delhi and elsewhere. Until now, the government has allowed the protection of personal data, unless there is a legal necessity. However, the new policy would invalidate the previous privacy guidelines.
