* Digital Media Center DMC * warned of fake channels on the Telegram platform bearing the Ministry of Education name that mislead students with incorrect information and news and impersonate the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research, calling on government agencies to follow these channels and take legal measures against those standing behind them.
The Center detected many fake channels on the Telegram platform bearing the name of the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research or impersonating the minister, and, unfortunately, these channels have thousands of subscribers and their news is widely circulated in student groups on Telegram.
The center hopes that the students will personally eliminate the fake channels, as they represent the educated class and the future generation, by relying on the official channels of the ministry only to obtain news and report the fake channels correctly.
The center stresses the need to document the ministry’s Telegram channel as a first and important step to address this bad phenomenon, especially since the documented channel will have priority to appear for those looking for the ministry’s channel on Telegram, in addition to that documentation will expose all other fake channels.
In a special statement to the Digital Media Center, the official spokesman for the Ministry of Higher Education, Dr. Haider Al-Aboudi, said that the ministry renews its warning against dealing with these faked channels and their fake publications, and calls on followers and those interested in university affairs to obtain information, news, and permission from the official website, channels, and pages approved by the Relations and Media Department in Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research.
