Salve: But here, this is a politically polarized debate and I don’t want to be a part of this. Look at this from Mr. Mohan’s point of view. He doesn’t run Facebook. He works for an American company, he will be in trouble if he puts forth his views on India’s government.
Salve: Sec. 69 of the IT Act states a proper procedure for complaints. We are answerable completely. That’s a statutory mechanism under which I function. If I don’t go there I will be in serious trouble. I elect to go there.
J. Roy: Facebook as an organization, if there is a complaint to the nodal agency, then you will be answerable and you said you are answerable to them? But the action of committee is not an exercise which is legitimate?
Salve: This is why I took your lordships time to go through WSJ articles, allegations etc. today the situation has become so polarized that me replying on things becomes unpleasant. I don’t want to get into this.
