The Government of India has asked Google to

movie Innocence of Muslims. According to The Times of India, US-based Google,

According to the report, a request was sent
to Google on the request of the Jammu & Kashmir Government which forwarded
a court order for getting those web pages removed as soon as possible.

Google India, in a statement, said, “We
work hard to create a community everyone can enjoy and which also enables
people to express different opinions. This can be a challenge because what’s OK
in one country can be offensive elsewhere. This video — which is widely
available on the Web — is clearly within our guidelines and so will stay on
YouTube. However, given the very difficult situation in Libya and Egypt we have
temporarily restricted access in both countries.”
