Governance

 

There is nothing wrong in expecting a code of conduct when people talk in public gatherings or express their views on social web sites. There is no doubt about the need for a code of conduct. I think there is one in the Praja site. This site has a set of rules.

However, objective public criticism should not / cannot be curbed in a healthy democratic set up. 

  1. (If social networking sites don’t cooperate)...then it is the duty of the govt to think of steps that we need. We have to take care of the sensibilities of our people - Kapil Sibal
  2. I hate the idea of censorship but have seen for myself how dangerous inflammatory content on Face book and YouTube can be... Something will have to give - Omar Abdullah on Twitter
  3. Have to say I support Kapil Sibal on the examples he gave me: deeply offensive material about religions & communities that could incite riots - Shashi Tharur on twitter …. See the front page TOI Article

My first reaction was skeptic about Kapil Sibal proposing the idea. This is because he was the man arguing / batting for 2G scam losses to be zero.

Moderation as such is not acceptable. Issuing a warning with proper justification is what is required. Only repeated violations can perhaps attract suitable punishment.
