Telecoms Minister Mohammad Javad Azari Jahromi took to Instagram to give ear to the growing concerns of the public regarding the proposed ban on Telegram, the popular communications app with over 40 million Iranian users.
Jahromi wrote on his Instagram page on Saturday night that the blocking of international services as a method to encourage the use of homegrown apps could have an adverse effect.
He added that “the Telecoms Ministry does not hold authority over blocking services, but is obligated to execute the directives by relevant committees and councils and orders issued by the judiciary.”
