What did he expect ?

Abhinav Bhatt, a law student based in Pune, filed a complaint with the magistrate’s court in June 2000, saying that Rediff has committed offence under section 292 of IPC (selling, distributing obscene material).

His contention was that if one was to type words such as “sexual intercourse” in the search window on rediff’s home-page, it threw up links of pornographic websites.

Maybe, he expected to find two birds tweeting, or two flowers coming together, like in the old Hindi films – but if you enter a search term like that – expect to get p*rn.

Maybe, Rediff should file a complaint that Mr.Bhatt was seeking p*rn – which is illegal in this country 🙂
