New Delhi: Pitching for a strong cyber infrastructure in the country, Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Saturday stressed that India should work towards developing its own servers.

Addressing students of the Jaypee Institute of Information Technology (JIIT) during a convocation ceremony in Noida, the home minister said: “As the home minister of the country, I don’t have control on many of the cyber crimes here as the server is located elsewhere.”



“In order to check growing cyber crime, we must develop cyber infrastructure,” he emphasised.

Echoing Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s call for building I-ways (information highways), the minister said: “We need highways, roads, but we also need I-ways in our country.”

“Our neighbour China has shown us how we can challenge Google by developing its own operating systems,” he added.

Talking about the ongoing Digital India Week launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on July 1, the home minister said: “Our government is not only promoting digital governance but I am confident that India will soon reinforce its digital dominance in the world.”

Urging the students to use education in a constructive manner, Singh said: “Education while used in a constructive way is always beneficial to society but when abused it may prove dangerous.”

Referring to new manifestations of terrorism, he pointed out that all militants are not illiterate.

“Some of them (militants) are highly qualified and technically sophisticated. This is a clear example of how technology can be abused for creating trouble in society,” the minister said.

Swastika, one of the sacred symbols used by many religions like Hinduism, Jainism, and Buddhism.

The symbol of Swastika is known to signify peace, prosperity, and good fortune in the religious cultures of Eurasia. In fact, this symbol is considered very significant in Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism. But, at the same time, it has become one of the most misunderstood religious symbols and has been globally banned in many countries.

The reason why the symbol of Swastika is banned in many countries is because of its association with Adolf Hitler's extreme political ideology, Nazism, as Swastika as its official symbol.

Neeraj Chopra was born on December 24, 1997, in Khandra village in Haryana's Panipat district. He grew up in a Haryanavi family of farmers. He is the brother of two sisters. He graduated from Dayanand Anglo-Vedic College in Chandigarh and is now enrolled in Lovely Professional University in Jalandhar, Punjab, pursuing a Bachelor of Arts degree.

He then joined a gym in Panipat, where Jaiveer Choudhary, a javelin thrower, noticed his potential and coached him.
