Speakers at a meeting organised by The Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama’at, Kolkata urged parents to educate their children about the do’s and don’ts that need to be followed on social media.
The meeting was held in a hotel in Central Kolkata on Saturday evening.

He regretted that even adults “often behave irrationally” and without understanding the consequences of messages that come on WhatsApp they forward it.
