The Delhi High Court, while hearing the appeal of former AIADMK leader Sasikala Pushpa, said that the position of women is high and photographs that violate their privacy cannot be allowed. Sasikala has challenged the order rejecting her claim that she was allegedly rammed with a person on social media. His image is being tarnished with his photo and video.
The High Court also said that violating the modesty of a woman in any way is a crime. Facebook, Google, and YouTube have argued that they are merely intermediaries and do not place any content on their forums. Sasikala has challenged the order of the single judge and appealed to the bench to remove the objectionable photos and to set aside the penalty imposed on them by the single judge.
A bench of Justice Siddharth Mridul and Justice Talwant Singh said during the hearing through video conference, "We keep women on high." We do not like any photograph that violates their privacy. ”The bench asked social media to remove this deadly material from their forums.
The court said, "No more mud. Put a break on this. ”The bench asked the concerned parties to discuss the material to be removed and fixed the matter for further hearing on 8 July. The single bench said in its order on June 2 that people have the right to know who their elected representatives are meeting behind closed doors and whether they are colluding. The single bench had said that the leaders are not entitled to any relief against social media on the request to remove the photo. He was directed to pay two lakh rupees each to Facebook Inc., Google LLC, and YouTube LLC. Sasikala, a Rajya Sabha MP expelled from AIADMK, joined the BJP in April this year while filing a petition in 2016.
