Moreover Facebook owned WhatsApp is facing the flak in India for allowing the circulation of large number of irresponsible messages filled with rumors and provocation that has led to growing instances of lynching of innocent people. Further according to The Verge, Facebook will review posts that are inaccurate or misleading, and are created or shared with the intent of causing violence or physical harm. Facebook added "Partners are asked to verify that the posts in question are false and could contribute to imminent violence or harm”.
