The law states that the Indian government can order the removal of a post from social media if it deems it illegal. Along with that, the government will have the opportunity to use a full database to identify the source of all messages sent using WhatsApp, Signals, and other messaging services.

WhatsApp operators described the law as “unconstitutional” In the 224-page lawsuit, WhatsApp argues that the law proposed by Ravi Shankar Prasad is a “terrible attack” on the user’s privacy and is “unconstitutional”.

WhatsApp has asked the court to declare the new law illegal, adding that it is unaware that any other country in the world has enacted such a law as India.
