谷歌以道德的名义抗议中国的法律限制,

仿佛自己站在道德的制高点,为人类的言论自由呐喊,可是它在印度做了什么呢?

却是当了民主的印度限制言论自由的走狗和帮凶!

且不说在闹退出事件之前,谷歌也正因为版权问题而遭到中国作家的起诉,一面做贼一面还要立牌坊。

2008年印度22岁的IT 专业人士 RahulKrishnakumarVaid因为在Orkut网站写下“我恨索尼娅甘地(I hate Sonia Gandhi)”而遭逮捕。Orkut是Google在印度的一个社交网络网站。Google立即向印度警方提供了Vaid的 Gmail电子邮件信息。Vaid被起诉了违反了印度刑法第292条和信息技术法第67条,在网上社区发布辱骂印度国大党领袖索尼娅甘地的内容。如果被判有罪,他将可能要入狱5年,罚款10万卢比。Google声称:Google致力于保护用户隐私,但Google必须遵守所在国的法律。 这还并不是第一起印度政府在Google帮助下逮捕其公民的事件。2007年11月也有一位名叫LakshmanaKailasK的网民也是在 Google的Orkut网站上张贴了一张亵渎印度教圣人Shivaji的图像,印度官方要求Google提供该网民的IP地址,Google完全配合,这位印度网民随后被印度政府逮捕,并遭受殴打。更为不人道的是该网民在印度监狱里被强迫用同一个碗吃饭和撒尿。更出乎预料的是事后证明该网民是被冤枉的。

这是英文原文:

“This month, Rahul Krishnakumar Vaid, an information technology (IT) consultant in his early 20s, was arrested by the police for posting "offensive" comments on Google's popular social networking site, Orkut. Vaid, based in the Delhi suburb of Gurgaon, had aired his views in a forum "I hate Sonia Gandhi". Sonia Gandhi is a national political leader and president of the Congress party that leads the federal government. The police traced Vaid after collecting his personal information from Google. Vaid could end up in jail for five years under India's tough IT-Act 2000 as he has been charged under Section 67, which relates to publication of obscene information in electronic content. Under Indian statutes, especially section 292 of the Indian penal code, connected to freedom of expression, criticisms are permitted so long as they are done in a civil manner. However, action can be initiated against obscenities, communal messages and sacrilege, charges also open to abuse and wide subjective interpretation. Refuting opinion that passing on user information is an invasion of privacy in the Vaid case, a Google spokesperson said while the company supports free expression of its customers and is committed to protecting user privacy, it complies with local laws and valid legal process."
