Govt bans bulk SMSes and MMSes ahead of Ayodhya verdict
New Delhi: As a measure of abundant caution in the face of Ayodhya verdict, the government on Wednesday banned bulk SMSes and MMSes for three days with immediate effect.
The Ministry of Communications issued the order in consultation with the Ministry of Home Affairs.
The order has been issued to all mobile telecom service providers in the country for "banning all bulk SMSes and MMSes in all service areas with immediate effect for next 72 hours".
The step comes two days before the verdict by the Allahabad High Court on the title suit of Ramjanambhoomi-Babri Masjid dispute on Friday.
