After Twitter, Facebook India Vice President Ajit Mohan was also shocked, Supreme Court dismissed the petition related to Delhi riots

Ajit Mohan, Vice Chairman of Facebook India, got a setback from the Supreme Court on Thursday. The Supreme Court dismissed the petition of Facebook India Vice President Ajit Mohan and others against the summons sent by the Peace and Harmony Committee of the Delhi Assembly, terming it as immature. However, during the hearing against the summons issued for the Delhi riots, the Supreme Court also directly targeted the committee. The Supreme Court said that the Peace Committee of the Delhi Legislative Assembly has no right to interfere in many such matters, including law and order, which come under the Central Government.

The Supreme Court said that social media platforms have the power and the power to influence people across the world. Many social media users do not have the means to ascertain the veracity of the content, so posts on forums like Facebook, debates taking place here can act as a divide for any society. The Supreme Court also stressed on the transparency of the process while delivering the verdict.

Explain that the Delhi Assembly’s Peace Committee had issued summons to these people for not appearing before them as witnesses in the cases of riots in North-East Delhi. These summons were issued on September 10 and 18 last year.

A bench of Justice Sanjay Kishan Kaul, Justice Dinesh Maheshwari and Justice Hrishikesh Roy had reserved its verdict on February 24.
