India objects to certain contents on Facebook, Google
New Delhi: The Indian government has taken
objection to some of the content on Facebook, Google and
similar platforms and told them to find a way to ensure that
such material is not carried.
Highly-placed sources said here tonight that there was,
however, no intention to censor such platforms. At the same
time, they should be "sensitive about community standards in
India and it is their responsibility to find solutions to the
problem," they said.
The content in question is described by these sources as
provocative and insensitive to the feelings of various
communities. Some of the content is viewed as insulting and
Representatives of these platforms have held discussions
with government in recent weeks but they have virtually
expressed their inability to do anything in the matter.
