Video editing software banned in India
Video editing programs are widely used by journalists in India, and a crackdown on the software was announced on Thursday.
The Indian government said that it was banning the software “in the interest of national security and public order.”
The move comes after the government ordered police to block the software from being used by anyone working in the country.
The ban came in response to complaints that the software could cause harm to the privacy of the Indian people and the country’s digital infrastructure.
The government said it was not targeting anyone working on news programs, but rather the software’s creators, who are mostly people with limited English skills.
“The Government of India is taking immediate action against those engaged in the production of the video editing software Nirn, as it is alleged that the content is harmful to the national security, public order and social cohesion,” the Indian government’s National Security Advisor Sushil Kumar said in a statement.
The software is a popular alternative to other software that allows users to create videos or images and upload them to social media platforms such as Facebook, YouTube and Vimeo.
It is often used to help people edit videos, but it can also be used to edit images.
“Our country is not a safe place for anyone to work,” Prime Minister Narendra Modi told the country in a speech on Monday.
“We are making it absolutely clear that we will not allow anybody to work on India’s internet or anywhere else in the world without a proper licence, including video editing programs.”
Modi has made cracking down on video editing and its use a priority in his two years in office.
He has promised to close down sites that provide access to pirated software and has threatened to crack down on social media.
“In view of the recent developments, the Government of the Union of India has taken action against the video-editing software NirN.
The Government of Indian Republic has made it absolutely evident that it will not permit anybody to be involved in the development of NirN,” Kumar said.
“It is an unfortunate situation and will not be tolerated by any government.
Anyone who attempts to break the law of the land will be arrested,” he added.
A number of popular software developers, including the head of a popular Indian online video-hosting service called Videoconferencing, were banned in the United States earlier this year.
The United States imposed sanctions on the company and other companies that use NirN, which was released under the name “Nir” by a group called the Free Software Foundation.
The sanctions were aimed at restricting the software, which is used by hundreds of millions of people in the U.S., to people working in India.
