Arbitrary Social Platforms
All social platforms are exempt under Section 79 of the IT Act as they display third party data but they create their own standards by claiming protection and ignoring Indian laws. On these social media platforms, posts or fake posts that promote the dignity of women or promote terrorism are promoted. While many other posts are deleted or modified and there are no criteria for it. This arbitrariness can be curbed after May 26.
