Social websites including Google and Facebook have been ordered by an Indian court to remove all ‘anti-religious’ and ‘anti-social’ content within six weeks.
On Saturday a Delhi Court ordered 22 social networking sites, including Yahoo and Microsoft, to wipe the objectionable and defamatory contents and file compliance reports by February 6, 2012.
Additional Civil Judge Mukesh Kumar passed the order on a suit filed by Mufti Aijaz Arshad Qasmi seeking to restrain the websites from circulating objectionable and defamatory contents.
Qasmi had objected to a number of images on the websites which he complained would cause ‘irreparable loss and injury to the people who are offended by them’.

The Hindu Times reported Facebook India, Facebook, Google India Pvt Ltd, Google Orkut, Youtube, Blogspot, Microsoft India Pvt Ltd, Microsoft, Zombie Time, Exboii, Boardreader, IMC India, My Lot, Shyni Blog and Topix were all given the order….
Of course, it’s a MUSLIM fanatic who filed this lawsuit, trying to impose Islamic/sharia law on the rest of us. That’s Islamic supremacy. (But only wacky rightwingers would be concerned about having the same thing happen in the U.S. and other Westernized nations.) You can be sure he cares not one whit whether or not remarks offensive to Hinduism are removed – he’s just thrown that in to make it appear as if he’s not only concerned about Islam.
Unfortunately for Islamists, much Islamic doctrine goes against MY religion. Hence, I demand that all offensive Islamic doctrine be removed forthwith from not just these websites but all websites across the internet. That removal of things offensive to my religion would include the passages from the Koran highlighted in my page of quotes from Islam. Ditto with Judaism, Christianity and the rest of the intolerant religious sects and misogynistic cults.
In that case, I’m all for it, if everything that goes against MY religion is removed:
Pretty much proving the importance of my essay – and my forthcoming video of same. (Yes, I’m busily working on a video – my first solo! – of this essay. I’ve got the draft done already, but it will take some time to make it perfect.)
