Social Media banned again

The Government has decided to again ban the social media network including Facebook, WhatsApp and Viber following the tense situation prevailing in several areas including Chilaw. A Face book statement was the cause of the situation that surfaced in Chilaw yesterday.
The Government emphasized that the social media should be used with more responsibility. The Government had to obstruct the social media as a majority used it irresponsibly after the Easter Sunday attacks. Thereafter the Government lifted the ban believing that the public would use it responsibly. However various issues surfaced as some continue to use the social media irresponsibly.
A Facebook comment led to the disturbance that surfaced in the Chilaw area yesterday. Taking this situation into consideration the Government had to again temporarily ban the social media.
Defence sectors have emphasized that stern action would be taken against those who use the social media irresponsibly.
