Parliament passes Digital Security Bill 2018

The much-talked-about 'The Digital Security Bill, 2018' was passed in Parliament on Wednesday (Sep 19) to deal with cybercrimes, including hurting the religious sentiment, negative propaganda against the Liberation War and Bangabandhu, and illegal activities in e-transactions and spreading defamatory data. 

Posts, Telecommunications and Information Technology Minister Mustafa Jabbar moved the Bill and it was passed by voice vote, local media reports said.
