The Parliamentary Committee on Information Technology headed by Shashi Tharoor on Wednesday summoned officials of the IT Ministry and Home Ministry to appear in Parliament in connection with the alleged Pegasus spying case

The Parliamentary Committee on IT Affairs, headed by Shashi Tharoor, on Wednesday summoned the Ministries of Home and Information Technology, amid uproar by the opposition in Parliament. In fact, today the Parliamentary Committee on IT Affairs headed by Congress leader Shashi Tharoor will meet on the issue of ‘Citizen Data Security and Security’ related to Pegasus. Pegasus spyware is once again in discussion around the world including India. The Israeli surveillance company NSO Group’s software Pegasus is being claimed to be used to spy on the phones of several journalists, social activists, politicians, ministers and government officials.

Let us tell you that Shashi Tharoor had already tweeted about the Pegasus case, ‘It has been proved that the phone tested in India had Pegasus attack, as this product is sold only to the government.

The question arises which government? If the Indian government says that they did not do this, some other government did, then it is a matter of serious concern about national security.’ He further said, ‘If it is found that it is our government and is authorized to do so, then the Government of India needs to explain because the law allows communication through communication only for the issue of national security, terrorism . It is illegal.’

It is worth noting that a total of 16 institutions, including foreign media, had released a joint report, in which 300 verified mobile numbers of India were allegedly spied on. It was revealed that Israel’s Pegasus software was used for this espionage. It is being claimed that in this list leaked from the database of NSO, about 40 eminent journalists including Leader of Opposition Rahul Gandhi, two Union Ministers Prahlad Singh Patel, Minister of Railways and Information and Broadcasting Ashwini Vaishnav, businessman Anil Deshmukh, former Chief of CBI. Mobile numbers are included. However, it is not yet confirmed that their mobile phones were hacked.

Questions and answers will also be taken from the officials in this.
