Case Filed Against Facebook in India for ‘Hate Gandhi’ Group

Lucknow police has filed a case against Facebook for a group ‘I hate Gandhi’ that was created on the site.

What’s surprising is that there still are close to 10 groups/pages when you search for ‘I hate Gandhi’ (excluding lesser known Gandhis like Varun/Rahul).

Hate Gandhi on Facebook

This isn’t the first time Facebook has faced such issues  in India – earlier few school girls were suspended from school for using Abusive Language on Facebook.

As far as Facebook is concerned, it’s the new Orkut! Expect more such cases (Orkut faced legal cases over anti Shiv sena community, and even shared a user’s IP address with police (anti Sonia Gandhi group)

Who do you think is liable for such goofups? The platform or the content creator?
