India Asks Facebook, Google, Yahoo and Microsoft To Censor Criticism [guardian.co.uk]
The Indian government has told social networking giants Facebook, Google, Yahoo and Microsoft to remove material that might "offend Indian sensibilities", unleashing a storm of criticism from internet users in the world's largest democracy.

Kapil Sibal, the telecoms and information technology minister, on Tuesday confirmed he had met executives from the four companies to ask them to screen content, but no agreement had been reached.
