The minister said there are some people who are spreading propaganda abroad. They can do it against any person but when it goes against the state it is sedition.

He added that these two are different things. One person can say against me, but the other thing causes damage to the state.

We have recommended revoking the passports of those who are spreading propaganda against the state abroad. A decision has been taken to revoke passports of those who’re doing it continuously, he stated.

He told that directives to take steps in this regard have been given.
