Aiming to have control over promoting different provocative information and comments regarding national threats and religious, social and political issues through using social media or any internet technology, a project on content filtering has been initiated by the government.
Post, Telecommunication and ICT Minister Mustafa Jabbar shared all these with the journalists after the inauguration of ‘ITU BTRC Asia-Pacific Regulators’ Roundtable-2018’ conference held on August 6. The project had been stuck for long time since 2013. After taking over the responsibilities as minister, Mustafa Jabbar has taken effective initiatives to execute the project.
In the inauguration of the conference, as chief guest Mustafa Jabbar said- Optical Fiber has been applied in almost every union in Bangladesh. Mobile network has been available everywhere in the country. Hopefully, we will have the capability for complete content filtering or scrutinize the required issues once the project is accomplished.
