Delhi High Court: Warning to Facebook and Google

The Indian government has sanctioned the prosecution of executives from companies like Google and Facebook for objectionable content posted online.

Yesterday the Delhi High Court warned that like China, India can shut down this sites.
21 Internet companies are in legal trouble. Charges against them will include "promoting enemity between groups" and "delebirate malicious acts intended to outrage."

A Lower Court in Delhi has also asked the government to issue summons to more than 10 companies who have said they are head-quartered abroad, like Facebook, Yahoo, and YouTube. The executives of all 21 companies have been ordered to appear in court on March 13. They may face criminal charges.

Google and Facebook have applied against the lower court's proceedings in the Delhi High Court, which will consider the matter on Monday.

Regarding this Internet companies says,
          "No human interference is possible, and moreover, it can't be feasible to check such incidents. Billions of people across the world posts their articles on the website."

That met an angry response from the Delhi High Court yesterday, which says,
          "You just have a stringent check. Otherwise, like China, we may pass orders banning all such websites."
