Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav has said that he would raise with the Prime Minister the issue of "anti-Islam material" on Facebook and seek a strict law against posting such objectionable material on social networking sites.
"Mulayam Singh has said that he will talk to Prime Minister over the issue of anti-Islam obscene material on Facebook and ask him to frame a strict law to prevent it," said a statement from the ruling Samajwadi party in Uttar Pradesh. Mr Yadav said that he will also raise the issue in Parliament.
The SP leader made this statement after party president of the Mumbai unit Abu Azmi informed him of such content.
Mr Azmi has written a letter to Deputy Chief Minister of Maharashtra RR Patil and asked him to check such acts, it said. He also requested the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister "to look into the matter and use his clout to check anti-Islam activity on Facebook", the statement said.
