Lawmakers panel miffed at the Facebook India team – this is why

A panel of Indian lawmakers studying the information and technology industry in the country is far from happy over Facebook’s responses on preventing hate mongering. The Parliamentary committee that questioned Facebook India officials on Monday as part of its hearing,  sought safeguards on the platform to prevent polarization and any possible tampering of the country’s democratic process.

Further, the panel of Indian law-makers also decided to summon the Facebook whistleblower Sophie Zhang, the data scientist who published a memo detailing the way Facebook was used to influence global politics. She had specifically spoken about how the platform was allowed to be used for polarisation of opinions during the 2020 Delhi riots.
