Alibaba and Jack Ma summoned by Indian Courts to respond to Complaints

Court documents show that an Indian court issued subpoenas to more than a dozen individuals and companies including Chinese Internet giant Alibaba and its founder Jack Ma, summoning them to appear in court on July 29 in response to Alibaba’s UC network ( Web). A complaint that a former Indian employee believed he was wrongly fired by the company after opposing the company’s review and false information on the company’s application software.

Reuters reported on Sunday (July 26) that the subpoena was issued by a civil judge in a district court in Gurugram, the satellite city of New Delhi, the capital of India. The judge also asked Alibaba and its executives to provide a written response within 30 days.

After the deadly bloody border conflict between China and India broke out in June this year, India launched a domestic boycott of “Made in China” campaigns. The Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology of India announced on June 29 that 59 apps including Alibaba’s UC News and UC Browser, as well as TikTok, WeChat, and Weibo, were banned on the grounds of security concerns and subsequently, Alibaba UC Network began to fire employees in India.

In a previously unreported court document stating July 20th, Alibaba UC Web’s former employee Pushpandra Singh Parmar stated that the company had reviewed content that was unfavorable to China. Its application UC Tour Browser (Browser) and UC News (News) showed that false news “causes social and political unrest.”

According to the report, Parma has been serving as the deputy director of the UC Web office in Gurugram, India until October 2017 and he asked for compensation of 268,000 U.S. dollars.

Parma’s lawyer declined to comment, saying the case is still under review.

In more than 200 pages of court documents, Palma provided evidence of screenshots of alleged “false” news on UC News (News), including the headline of the 2017 Hindi News saying “2000 rupees from midnight today with banknotes to be banned”, a message in 2018 “War broke out between India and Pakistan”.

UC News, a subsidiary of Alibaba, said in a statement that the company is “unswerving committed to the Indian market and the welfare of local employees, and its policies are in line with local laws” and “cannot comment on ongoing litigation.”

Representatives of Alibaba did not respond to Reuters’ requests for comment from the Chinese company or Jack Ma.

The Indian authorities stated that these applications and software were banned because they received “trusted” information that threatened India’s sovereignty, and therefore decided to take measures to protect citizens’ data and public order.

Introduction

Romesh Chunder Dutt wrote in the late 19th century, “The ancient Rajas of Bishnupur trace back their history to a time when Hindus were still reigning in Delhi, and the name of the Musalmans was not yet heard in India. Indeed, they could already count five centuries of rule over the western frontier tracts of Bengal before Bakhtiyar Khilji wrested the province from the Hindus.

The Musalman conquest of Bengal, however, made no difference to the Bishnupur princes… these jungle kings were little known to the Musalman rulers of the fertile portions of Bengal, and were never interfered with. For long centuries, therefore, the kings of Bishnupur were supreme within their extensive territories. At a later period of Musalman rule, and when the Mughal power extended and consolidated itself on all sides, a Mughal army sometimes made its appearance near Bishnupur with claims of tribute, and tribute was probably sometimes paid. Nevertheless, the Subahdars of Murshidabad, never had that firm hold over the Rajas of Bishnupur which they had over the closer and more recent Rajaships of Burdwan and Birbhum. As the Burdwan Raj grew in power, the Bishnupur family fell into decay; Maharaja Kirti Chand of Burdwan attacked and added to his zamindari large slices of his neighbour’s territories. The Marathas completed the ruin of the Bishnupur house, which is an impoverished zamindari in the present day.”

There are more historical temples in Bishnupur than in any other place in West Bengal. Almost all temples in Bishnupur town are Vaishnavite, but many of those scattered in different areas of the district spread outside the town are Shaivite, with traces of Jainism and Buddhism. While some of the older temples were built of laterite the area has numerous brick built temples, some with exquisite terracotta carvings.

While Bankura district has some fine examples of rekha deul temples built in what is popularly known as the Kalinga architecture of Orissa, as for example at Bahulara, but it is the Bengal style of architecture that attracts attention in the district. The Shyamrai temple built by Raghunath Singh in 1643 is perhaps the oldest pancharatna temple in Bengal. With curved roofs in thatched style, it has one pidha deul in the centre and one in each corner. The Jor Bangla temple was built in 1655 also by Raghunath Singh. It is a fine example of the Bengal style of temple architecture. Gods and goddesses were thought of as being close to human beings and as such placed in temples that resembled human habitation, the hut with thatched roof.

Four distinct types of temples may be distinguished in Bishnupur. The first has a single square on a curved roof and is represented by Malleswar temple. The second has a single tower on a curved roof. The best examples of this are Madan Mohan temple in brick and in laterite Lalji and Radha Shyam temples. The pancharatna temple has five towers on a curved roof. The best examples are Shyam Rai temple in brick and Madan Gopal temple in laterite. The fourth type is the Jor Bangla type with two buildings shaped like a typical Bengal hut joined together with a small turret on top, and is the most interesting one from the architectural point of view. The Shyam Rai temple has the finest specimens of carved tiles.

It needs to be mentioned that the powerful Rajas of Bishnupur had a non-descript single storied palace, not even comparable to the Rajbaris of many a somewhat ordinary zamindar in Bengal. Even the fort at Bishnupur seems to have been constructed for the protection of temples.
