ET reports that, The Aurangabad bench of Mumbai High Court has directed the Maharashtra government to issue notice to Google for the alleged spread of hatred about India by its social network service `Orkut’.

The order was issued by Justice A P Deshpande and Justice R M Borde Monday in response to a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) filed by local Advocate Yugant R Marlapalle.

Orkut is a mere platform to create communities and upon complaints, they usually remove objectionable content. So their is no question of Orkut spreading things against India. The community URL when I checked Orkut was http://www.orkut.com/Community.aspx?cmm=14773994 I hope the matter doesn’t get too serious.
