OMG! Will Supreme Court punish Facebook?

New Delhi: We are Indians and we love policy--and now Facebook says that it respects this Indian mindset. Facebook has told the Supreme Court that if Indians don't agree with WhatsApp policy they can withdraw. 

The counsel assured the court that the messages on WhatsApp are end to end encrypted and this ensures privacy adding that the contract between the user and the WhatsApp is in a private domain.

Reacting to the counsel KK Venugopal's suggestion that all those who find the new private policy irksome can leave, the Court said that this means you are giving a negative choice to the users. Harish Salve, who appeared for the petitioners said that it was disturbing that Facebook can have an access to the private conversations between two individuals.Solicitor General Tushar Mehta said that the government is committed to protect the fundamental rights guaranteed under the Constitution. The next hearing is on May 15.
