Sudhir Yadav, an RTI activist from Haryana, has filed a petition in the Supreme Court for banning WhatsApp. Yadav’s argument is that WhatsApp’s end-to-end encryption system used for messaging helps terrorists as these can’t be intercepted.

Even WhatsApp can’t intercept the messages, and probe agencies are having a tough time accessing them, Yadav has contended in his PIL.
According to sources, Yadav had written to the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India and the ministry of communications on the issue but did not receive any reply. Therefore, he decided to move the apex court.
