India-EU meet deliberates on concerted efforts to counter online radicalization

New Delhi, May 17 (UNI) The European Union (EU) and the National Investigation Agency (NIA) two-day meet aimed at formulating better mechanism to check on online radicalization and propaganda networks of different terror organisations, concluded here on Thursday with Indian and European experts discussing various aspects of countering online radicalisation in a more concerted manner.
The symposium discussed the various processes that lead to radicalisation and recruitment, propaganda networks of different terrorist organisations, tools to identify online extremist materials and their sources, and experiences of working with online service providers to block and remove such material.
Participants also discussed the use of electronic evidence in counter terrorism investigations as well as the mechanisms to legally prosecute producers and disseminators of terrorist e-propaganda.
This event reflects the essence of the joint statement on Cooperation in Combating Terrorism adopted by leaders on both sides at the 14th Summit in New Delhi on October 6, 2017 where they welcomed the joint commitment to explore opportunities to develop cooperation between the relevant institutions on both sides, to, inter alia, share information, best practices, including on countering the online threat of radicalisation, and to engage in capacity building activities, such as training and workshops.
In a statement after the conclusion of the workshop, the NIA said, "The internet and social media have become one of the main vehicles used by extremists and terrorists organisations to incite violence and sow hatred in our societies. Technological changes have also allowed them to reach a much greater number of people than ever before. India and the EU are determined to cooperate closely together to stop their citizens, and especially their youth, from becoming prey to online radicalisation."
Mr Tomasz Kozlowski, Ambassador of the European Union to India, said "This workshop is the clear reflection that the EU and India are joining hands in the fight against terrorism”.
NIA Director General YC Modi stressed that developing skills to investigate complex terror crimes carried out in the cyber realm is the need of the hour.

Commending EU-India security cooperation, the Ambassador of France to India, Alexandre Ziegler said, “France is determined to fight terrorism wherever it is found and to enhance operational cooperation with India.
Disrupting the distribution of terrorist propaganda online has become a global priority and we will continue to support building of a European database of illegal content, as it is part and parcel of the new French National Plan to Prevent Radicalisation."
In addition to the NIA, representatives from several state police forces of Uttar Pradesh, Assam, Maharashtra, Himachal Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Delhi, Punjab, Goa, Jammu and Kashmir, Rajasthan, Jharkhand, Manipur and also central agencies took part in the workshop.
European participants represented Europol (the EU Agency for Law Enforcement Cooperation) as well as law enforcement agencies from Belgium, France and Spain.
