Say No To Cyber Censoring In India

Indian government is trying to bring cyber censoring on social networking sites.Kapil Sibal  the Minister of Communications And Information Technology is one of the main hands behind it.Social networking sites are ordered to remove the posts said by them.They include adult content but most of them are people's attitude against the government.This is against people's right to show there opinion.I cant believe that it is happening to a country like India.
If you know the history of India then compare this with it.

And speaking about the technical side its impossible to delete certain posts from the data base's of millions of users.I think they are trying to ban these sites because now these sites help people to speak against bad attitudes of
the government.I found this in Amit Agarwal's blog

Indian Telecom Minister Kapil Sibal recently had a meeting with executives of Google, Facebook and Yahoo and demanded that these Internet companies hire “human beings” to screen user-generated content before it is published on the Internet.

Heather Timmons writes in The New York Times:
At the meeting, Mr. Sibal showed attendees a Facebook page that maligned the Congress Party’s president, Sonia Gandhi.  “This is unacceptable,” he told attendees, the executive said, and he asked them to find a way to monitor what is posted on their sites.
In the second meeting with the same executives in late November, Mr. Sibal told them that he expected them to use human beings to screen content, not technology, the executive said.

 Does our Indian minister know that 48 hours of video are uploaded to YouTube every minute. Or that 250 million tweets are generated per day.

I am sad to say that our ministers words seems like a joke.I think India need's a minister who knows something about  latest technology and want to remind that this is India,the land of Gandhi.I think they know Gandhi and the reason he fought for...
