Justice Markandey Katju, Press Council of India Chairperson has
called for regulating social media in the country, saying it would prevent
unpleasant material from making it into the public domain.

“Social media like Facebook and Google need to be
regulated as a lot of dirty and filthy material is available on these sites and
these affect the minds of the younger generation,” Katju said at the
Indian Women Press Corps.

Katju further said that Indian media has been
playing a very irresponsible role. “I am not against the media and fight for
their rights as nobody else would have. I am not calling for controlling media
but regulating them. May be a separate committee should be constituted and the
media fraternity should be a part of framing its guidelines,” he added.
