New Delhi, Feb 28 (IANS) Social networking website Facebook, facing trial for hosting allegedly objectionable content, has told a Delhi court that the case has been filed against it with “ulterior motives”.
Facebook has also requested Administrative Civil Judge Praveen Singh to remove its name from the case.
In its reply to the court which was made available Tuesday, Facebook said: “The plaintiff has filed the present suit with ulterior motives to harass Facebook.”
The company called the suit a “gross abuse of the process of law”.
The court was hearing a petition of Mufti Aijaz Arshad Qasmi, an Islamic researcher linked to a website run by Islamic Peace Foundation of India, who sought the removal of “objectionable content” from websites.
Earlier, Yahoo India, which is also a party to the case, had termed the suit as “motivated”.
