While expressing his views on the passive response given by giant media companies like Facebook, YouTube and Google UK Security Minister Ben Wallace said that these companies did not actively when requested by UK government to tackle the terrorism activities.
He said these companies should be charged tax penalties for not dealing with the threat if terrorism by removing radicle and sensitive data from their sites. They were so slow in taking steps that government had to intervene in it instead.
Facebook expressed its disagreement on Mr. Wallace’s statement. YouTube said it was a complex problem and was a challenging task for them to finish it so quickly.
Experts on UK economy believe that charging tax on these firms is nothing an effort taken by the government to put pressure on tech firms.
Google has yet to respond to Mr Wallace’s remarks.
