Cyber Crime campaign, the Sholay way | My Indian Dream

Famous star Amitabh Bachchan supported the cause of Mumbai Police to make people aware of the cyber crime. 

Taking into consideration the importance of making people aware of the cyber crime, Mumbai Police decided to launch a new and unique campaign for the same. Called as Sholay style campaign. Supporting the campaign, Mega star Amitabh Bachchan also tweeted his support for Mumbai Police’s new campaign. 

Bachchan tweeted an image with a caption "Not the gun but awareness can be your biggest weapon against the online 'Gabbars' reel to real.” 

The campaign has many images which feature the scenes of Amitabh Bachchan, Dharmendra and Hema Malini. Apart from making people aware of the cyber campaign, he also motivated people to spread the message of cleanliness and to stop open defecation. He wrote, “India has vowed to end open defecation. Spread the message of cleanliness through darwaza band (closed door) and support Swachh Bharat... I do,” 

The message on it reads, "Cyber criminals often ask questions that do not need to be answered by you at all." Amitabh Bachchan re-tweeted the link and wrote, "An initiative I support, Mumbai police awareness campaign on traffic, cyber crime... Based on my dialogues.” Mumbai Police has been facing cyber-related complaints a lot and in the first four months of the year, almost 178 cases were registered. Cases like card fraud have gone up in the department and hence the campaigns suggest people not to answer any unrelated and not required questions on the internet.
