We Cannot Censor The Web:Google

Indian courts asked the Internet companies to monitor the content on their sites and warned that India will impose restrictions like china. Google is among the 21 companies which have been summoned by a Delhi court on 13 March. for allegedly hosting offensive content.Another hearing will be held on 2 February 2012.

Google's chief business officer Nikesh Arora's answer to this was "We cannot censor the Web. We cannot censor the ability of people to express themselves around
the world. You are asking not just censor the Web in India, you are asking to censor the entire world wide web. The Web has no borders. I think the idea of censoring everything and pre- clearing everything is going to fundamentally, sort of, taint the growth of the Indian economy in India and vis-a-vis the world."

During the previous hearing, Google and Facebook had said that there was no way for them to monitor content on their sites.
