After the recent morphed images and hate messages against people of the Northeast parts of India were reportedly uploaded from Pakistan, Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde has talks with Pak’s Interior Minister Rehman Malik.
He urged the Pak minister to provide support to track the people who are spreading such content on social networking sites.
The Home Minister raised the issue when Rehman Malik called him yesterday when Mr. Malik called him to give best wishes to be appointed as Home Minister of India.
