Seeking deletion of its name from a suit against social networking websites for hosting alleged objectionable contents, the Facebook India today told a Delhi court that it is not responsible for the contents appearing on website facebook.com.
"It is not responsible for hosting the content that may appear on facebook.com as it does not control or operate the servers that host the website, which are located in the United States," Facebook India submitted to administrative civil judge Parveen Singh.
After hearing Facebook India's argument for deletion of its name from the suit, the court reserved its order for May 22.
Seeking deletion of its name, Facbook India also argued that it provides only technical support and services to Facebook (US).
Facebook was making its submission in response to a civil suit filed by one Mufti Aijaz Arshad Qasmi against it, Yahoo, Google and other internet firms objecting to certain contents on their websites which, he alleged had hurt the religious sentiments of various communities.
