New Delhi: Refusing to ban Whatsapp for what a PIL alleged being a threat to national security, the Supreme Court of India on Wednesday asked the petitioner to approach the government, reports said.

The top court gave the ruling while examining the issue following a Public Interest Litigation filed by Haryana based RTI activist Sudhir Yadav.

The petition said that messaging apps, including WhatsApp, Viber, Telegram, Hike and Signal were helping terrorists and criminal elements, who can encrypt the messages thus pose a threat to national security.

Dismissing the petition, Supreme Court asked the petitioner to approach Telecom Disputes Settlement and Appellate Tribunal (TDSAT).
