The government is not fulfilling its responsibility to stop cybercrime and misleading information on coronavirus vaccines on the internet, Lahore High Court Chief Justice Qasim Khan said Thursday.

He was hearing a petition on removal of sacrilegious content.

Justice Khan gave examples of disinformation like claims of deaths after being vaccinated. On the issue of sacrilegious content, he asked the government what could be done about content uploaded outside of Pakistan.
