WhatsApp in India – level 3

02-06-2021 15:00

WhatsApp has sued India’s government over a new law because it violates privacy rights written in India’s Constitution.

The new law requires social media companies to identify message senders. WhatsApp says it cannot do it because it would have to decode information about those who send messages and those who receive them.

WhatsApp, Facebook and other tech giants have all invested heavily in India, but now they worry that heavy regulation by India’s Prime Minister could jeopardize those investments.

WhatsApp currently has nearly 400 million users in the country.

Difficult words: sue (to take somebody to court), violate (to go against a law), Constitution (the most important laws in a particular state), jeopardize (to risk that something could be destroyed).
