Submission + - Google Assists In Arrest Of Indian Man ( 1

hansraj writes: The latest in Google's compliance to local law-enforcement authorities involves helping arrest an Indian man "for posting derogatory content about Congress chief Sonia Gandhi and Mahatma Gandhi on an [O]rkut community named — I hate Sonia Gandhi". Sonia Gandhi is an Italian born Indian politician. Before you make up your mind whether Google was right in complying with local laws or not, the same story has the following to say:

Interestingly, the person who formed this community is not guilty as per the law. The police said that hating Sonia Gandhi is a personal opinion of the person who formed the community and having a personal opinion about someone is not an offence as per the law.
