Anti-Islam film:Delhi HC issues notice to government, Google
 

The Delhi High Court on Wednesday issued notices to the central government and Google India on a plea that videos of the controversial anti-Islam film "Innocence of Muslims" be removed from various sites, including YouTube.

 

 Issuing notice to the Centre and the ministries of Home Affairs, External Affairs, Minority Affairs, Corporate Affairs and Information and Broadcasting (I and B) along with the Delhi Police and Google India, a bench of Chief Justice D Murugesan and Justice Rajiv Sahai Endlaw sought their response by January 23, 2013.

The court also asked the centre to inform it on the next date of hearing if any permanent solution could be found.

The bench was hearing a petition filed by Maulana Mahmood Madani, general secretary of a religious body Jamiat Ulama-I-Hind (JUIH) seeking direction for complete removal of the film 'Innocence of Muslims' from various websites.

 

A division bench of Chief Justice D. Murugesan and Justice Rajiv Sahai Endlaw also issued notices to the commissioner of police as well as the ministries of information and broadcasting, home, corporate affairs, external affairs and minority affairs.

Asking the central government to come out with a permanent solution on the issue, the court posted the matter for Jan 23.

The petition filed by Maulana Mahmood Asad Madani, general secretary of the Jamiat Ulama-I-Hind (JUIH), sought the removal of the 13-minute clip from YouTube and other sites.

It alleged that the movie was made in the US and the filmmaker was backed by anti-Islam groups.

Delhi Police counsel Najmi Waziri told the court that police could not remove the video. However, taking suo motu cognisance, it had registered a first information report based on various complaints, and had also written many times to the government on the issue.On October 3rd,A division bench of Chief Justice D. Murugesan and Justice Rajiv Sahai Endlaw reserved the order after both parties concluded their arguments.

The petition, filed by a group of lawyers, sought the removal of the 13-minute clip of the film from YouTube, official channel of Google India.

It alleged that the movie was made in the US and the filmmaker was backed by anti-Islam groups.

The petitioners sought "direction against the respondents (the government, Google India and YouTube) to completely remove and block the links of the entire movie/trailers 'Innocence of Muslim' and all the clips emanating from the movie up-loaded on YouTube, owned by Google and shown in India".

Senior Advocate Kirti Uppal, appearing for petitioners, argued that countries like Brazil, Argentina and Russia had banned the film and removed the video clips from the site.

The government told the court that various courts in India had also passed orders on which it had acted.

"The government has already blocked 157 URLs (uniform resource locator) and let the petitioner give the link, we would take action," said government's counsel.

The petition said: "The internet companies should have taken a pro-active approach in disbanding anti-Islamic content. These firms like Google, have no code of conduct and behave irresponsibly. They tend to provoke first and then defend such blasphemous acts on the ruse of free speech."
