New Delhi: The government of India has ordered blocking of 12 websites linked to pro-Khalistani groups, according to a source aware of the development on Tuesday.

Some of the blocked websites were being directly operated by outlawed organisation Sikhs for Justice (SFJ). These websites were carrying pro-Khalistani content. It is reported that some of the blocked websites were directly operated by the outlawed organisation Sikhs for Justice (SFJ).

“12 websites have been ordered to be blocked by the Ministry of Electronics and IT under section 69 A of the IT Act. They were supporting pro-Khalistani activities. The order was issued on Monday,” the source, who did not wish to be identified, was quoted as saying by news agency PTI.

The cyberspace in India is monitored by the The Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MEITY). The banned websites include SFJ4Farmers, pbteam, seva413, pb4u, sadapind, among others with “org” extension.

Some banned websites said, “Your requested URL has been blocked as per the directions received from Department of Telecommunications, Government of India. Please contact administrator for more information.”

In the previous year, the Home Ministry had banned SFJ for its anti-national activities. The SFJ had pushed for the Sikh Referendum 220 as the part of its separatist agenda.

The government of India had blocked over 40 websites in July this year, which belonged to SFJ for supporting secessionist activities.
