Priyank Kanungo, chairman of the National Commission for Protection of Child Rights, on the lawsuit filed against Twitter, says that the commission has conducted separate inquiries into the issue of pornographic content and children’s vulnerability on Twitter.
He told that, there is a case that a child’s photo was put on Twitter and then Rape trade user gave him rape threads. We had written to Twitter to take action in this matter and there has been an FIR earlier also but the attitude of Twitter was very insensitive on this. Also Indian was not ready to accept the laws.
Twitter America holds 99% shares in Twitter Communication India Pvt Ltd – Priyank Kanungo
Priyank Kanungo said, Twitter Communication India Private Limited, which is an Indian company, has nothing to do with Twitter INC that it only does some work on contract. When we tried to know the same thing through the Ministry of IT, they told us. We also learned that Twitter America has taken 99% shares in Twitter Communication India Pvt Ltd.
We will go to competent court from next week- Priyank Kanungo
According to the law in foreign countries, children can watch pornographic content after the age of 15, but in India it is an offense to show pornographic content to children till the age of 18 years. Also in India the law of India will have to be followed. For this we are taking strictest action in this direction.
This whole topic is not just about filing lawsuits or using the law alone, in fact it is a matter of children, it is a struggle of civilizations. We will go to any extent in the struggle for our civilization.
