Ajit Mohan Of Facebook India Summoned By Delhi Assembly Panel

According to an official statement, the Facebook official has been summoned based on “scathing depositions of key witnesses as well as incriminating material” submitted by them on record.

“We hereby summon you (Ajit Mohan) to appear before the committee on September 15, 2020, at noon at MLA Lounge-1, Delhi Vidhan Sabha, to record your deposition on oath and participate in the proceedings carried out by the committee,” the Delhi Assembly’s deputy secretary said in the notice sent on September 10.

“The assembly’s committee had received multiple complaints addressed to its Chairman Raghav Chadha against the officials concerned of Facebook for their alleged deliberate and intentional inaction to contain hateful content in India for vested reasons,” the statement stated.

Last month Facebook’s spoke person had released a statement that said that Facebook never welcomes hate speech and violent content.

“We prohibit hate speech and content that incites violence and we enforce these policies globally without regard to anyone”s political position or party affiliation. “While we know there is more to do, we”re making progress on enforcement and conduct regular audits of our process to ensure fairness and accuracy,” a Facebook spokesperson had said.
