Facebook India is not going to get an easy escape as the Delhi Assembly’s peace and harmony committee has issued a fresh notice to company’s vice president and managing director Ajit Mohan to ensure his presence before the panel on September 23.
In a statement issued on Sunday, the panel said if Mohan doesn’t appear on the said date then it’ll be deemed to be an act of “breach of the constitutionally-guaranteed privileges” of the committee.
The final warning was issued by the committee chaired by Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLA Raghav Chadha after Mohan did not appear in the last meeting of the panel. He has insisted that Facebook should take Delhi’s state legislature proceedings in the same manner as they did for a parliamentary standing committee.
Why Facebook Is In Toubles?
The social media giant has been under the scrutiny of the panel after a Wall Street Journal report alleged that Facebook didn’t remove hate speech videos of leaders of the ruling Bhartiya Janta Party. The videos date back to the northeast Delhi riots of February in which over 50 people lost their lives.
Eventually, the video continued to surface on the social media platform even after the riots. It was only removed when the Wall Street Journal had asked Facebook to give reasons why the video is still cirulating on the social media platforms. Interestingly, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg had also referred to one of the videos as an example of what the company doesn’t tolerate. Still, Facebook India’s official didn’t remove the video. The report also alleged that Facebook India’s public policy head Ankhi Das has close ties with the BJP government. быстрый займ онлайн спбзайм онлайн без отказа срочнозайм без проверок на киви займ экспресс в москвебыстрый займ денег на картузайм по паспорту на киви
