New Delhi, March 5 (IANS) Google-owned video sharing platform YouTube has removed a video containing defamatory allegations against yoga guru Baba Ramdev from its platform after being directed by the Delhi High Court.
YouTube confirmed to IANS that the video which contained defamatory statements against Ramdev and Patanjali Ayurved Ltd has been taken down.
Ramdev had alleged that a video uploaded by an unknown person contained several defamatory, disparaging and threatening statements against him and Patanjali.
The Delhi High Court had asked Facebook, YouTube and Twitter to forthwith remove, block or disable links to the video.
Since the video was removed from YouTube, it cannot run on Facebook because it came from a third party onto the social media giant.
