NEW DELHI: Ahead of a crucial hearing of a parliamentary committee, Facebook has denied charges of political bias against its employees in India. Reacting to Wall Street Journal’s recent report that caused a storm of controversy, FB India MD Ajit Mohan also said that the company denounces hate and bigotry in any form.
“Our aim is to be an ally for India where our platforms preserve the pluralistic character of a democracy by offering the freedom for people to express themselves and for entrepreneurs to build new things while also protecting society from broader harm,” he wrote in a blog on Friday.
Mohan mentioned the steps FB has taken to ensure strict enforcement of its policies, including those that cover hate speech. “We enforce these policies globally without regard to anyone’s political position, party affiliation or religious and cultural belief,” he added.
