While explaining the seriousness of the deep fake video threat which is based on artificial intelligence, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that he also became the victim of the trend. He addressed the party activists at the BJP National Party office on Friday. Deep fake videos are a threat to the system which causes issues in society. “I came across a video where I was depicted singing a Garba song. A few people sent me the videos. Media and journalists should create awareness among people on deep fake videos. There should be awareness of the troubles faced by the latest technology and how they should be overcome,” the PM said.
What should we do when deep fake videos go viral? No one knew about the controversy and the issue was not a problem until it became a sensation. But stars are falling prey to the deep fake threat which is grabbing everyone's attention.

The Ministry said that cheating others using any communication device or computer would attract three years in jail and a one lakh fine. At the same time, directives were also sent to X(Twitter), Instagram, Facebook, and others. Saying that content should be withdrawn within 36 hours of receiving a complaint, the platforms were warned that strict action would be taken if the rules were not followed.
