After issuing a ban on broadcast and sharing under IT act, the government has now asked video sharing website YouTube to remove the controversial BBC documentary on Delhi gangrape as it went viral. BBC, which released the documentary on Wednesday night in the UK, has uploaded it on the YouTube.
Communications and IT Ministry has told YouTube that the issue is very sensitive and it should review its position on the matter, and remove it from the website.
The video sharing site has not confirmed whether it has received a notification from the government, which is required to remove the content from its site. However, a YouTube spokesperson told media that "While we believe that access to information is the foundation of a free society and that services like YouTube help people express themselves and share different points of view, we continue to remove content that is illegal or violates our community guidelines, once notified."
