RTI vs “right to be forgotten online”

December 9, 2011

People ask Kapil Sibal who removed the documents related to Lal Bahadur Shastri,and Subhash Chandra Bose? My forthcoming book on the murder of Lal Bahadur Shastri contains so many hided/removed facts?

Why those facts are not in the government records of India and Russia? http://www.newsanalysisindia.com/post/Godse-to-Gandhi-heirs.aspx

Now Kapil Sibbal asked Google, Microsoft, Yahoo and Facebook to remove disparaging, inflammatory or defamatory content before it goes online.

Sonia Gandhi through Kapil Sibal is forging ahead with its plans to create a “right to be forgotten online” means Orwellian memory hole. Who wants to say Anuj Dhar that Right to Information (RTI) means Right to forgotten?

Why Kapil Sibal and his boss in government and in his Congress Party want to create Orwellian memory hole into which unwanted facts can disappear as they did time to time in the past?

Kapil Sibal is a Supreme Court Lawyer. Has Kapil Sibal not seen how a court in Germany successfully petitioned to have convicted murderer Wolfgang W.’s name removed from the German edition of online encyclopedia Wikipedia, along with attempts to gag the US edition of the web site?
With numerous injunctions against online archives, the two killers were trying to achieve the deletion of their names. Such a deletion was made in the German Wikipedia.

In November 2009 the Federal Court the application of one of the murderers on non-mention of his name at the website of an Austrian media company before the European Court of Justice to clarify, among other things, the jurisdiction of German courts.

The Federal Court ruled on 15 December 2009 that the convicts are not entitled to remove their names from Internet archives; this would mean an undue restriction of expression and media freedom.

The attempt to prohibit the lawyers, even the American Wikimedia Foundation, naming the names on the English page of Wikipedia was unsuccessful – in the English article the names are still available. By seeking the deletion, saw American newspapers like the New York Times prompted to name the names and expressly noting that the citation was protected the name by the First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States (free speech).
