Netizens tweet foul as India targets 'objectionable' content

New Delhi: A Delhi court hearing a civil case against various social networking sites for allegedly displaying objectionable content Wednesday ordered that summons be served to US-based social networking site, Facebook through e-mail.

Meanwhile petitioner's counsel Santosh Pandey moved an application seeking the government should be brought as a plaintiff for proper adjudication of the case as it is related to national issues.

Administrative Civil Judge Parveen Singh order that summons to Facebook should be served through e-mail within three days after observing that the firm has not appeared in the court as summons were not served against it.

The court was hearing a case filed by petitioner Mufti Aijaz Arshad Qasmi, an Islamic researcher linked to a website run by the Islamic Peace Foundation of India, who had sought removal of objectionable content from various websites.

Qasmi in a newly revised list submitted in last hearing April 12 has sought to prosecute - Facebook India, Facebook Inc, Google Inc, Orkut, Youtube Inc, and Blogspot.

Pandey has moved another application seeking review of the order of dropping the name of Orkut India, Youtube India and Blogspot India from the case. He said that the no objection given by him for deletion of the names of Google India and the other three parties was due to confusion.

He told the court that submissions made by Google India, Orkut India, Youtube India and Blogspot India that they were only subsidiaries of Google Inc, Orkut, Youtube and Blogspot were wrong.

The court has listed the matter for Thursday for further hearing.
