Who owns Telegram Messenger?

No. Not an Indian.

There are rumors that Telegram is an Indian company.


Telegram has around 500 million active users and was 8th most downloaded app in 2020, globally!

Telegram is owned by Palov Durov, a Russian founder by origin.  But Telegram has no connections with Russia.

Telegram has no servers or offices in Russia and was blocked there from 2018 to 2020

Also, Telegram has no India connections, unlike as reported by many fake websites.
