On October 23, 2019, the Delhi High Court held that Indian courts can issue orders to internet intermediaries like Facebook, Google, and Twitter to take down defamatory content published by users on the intermediaries platforms on a global basis. The order was passed pursuant to a suit filed by Swami Ramdev and Patanjali Ayurved Limited requesting the global take-down. INDUSLAW's Mohit Chadha, Aditi Verma Thakur and Kshitij Parashar discuss.
