On Friday, Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra showed her concern that if the BJP or the government engaged Israeli agencies to snoop into the phones of journalists, lawyers, activists and politicians, she said that is a gross violation of human rights and a scandal with grave ramifications on national security. She asked for Government’s response over the Israeli agencies snooping the data.

“If the BJP or the government has engaged Israeli agencies to snoop into the phones of journalists, lawyers, activists and politicians, it is a gross violation of human rights and a scandal with grave ramifications on national security,” Priyanka Gandhi said in a tweet. On Thursday, the government asked WhatsApp for an explanation after it confirmed it had informed several Indian users this week that they had been targeted by Israeli spyware Pegasus.

“Government of India is concerned at the breach of privacy of citizens of India on the messaging platform WhatsApp. We have asked WhatsApp to explain the kind of breach and what it is doing to safeguard the privacy of millions of Indian citizens,” Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad tweeted on Thursday.
