Google: We’re curious to see govt becoming party to a private lawsuit
NEW DELHI: Google and Facebook questioned the intention of Government of India, which has sanctioned the prosecution of the websites, and become a party to a case against them on the issue of objectionable content.
"We are curious as to why the Union of India has become a party to a case between private parties?" Google India's lawyer NK Kaul said in the Delhi High Court today.
"It might be a case of malafide intention, which we leave to the judgement of the Honourable Court," he said before Justice Suresh Cait in a packed courtroom.
The case is filed by Vinay Rai, editor of Akbari, against the websites, in a lower court over 'objectionable' images of Gods and Goddeses being posted online.
