New Delhi: A Delhi court dismissed the application of Facebook India seeking removal of its name from a civil suit against various social networking sites for allegedly displaying objectionable content.

Administrative Civil Judge Parveen Singh did not accept the plea of Facebook India that it was not responsible for the content appearing on website "facebook.com".

The court was hearing a petition moved by petitioner Mufti Aijaz Arshad Qasmi, an Islamic researcher linked to a website run by the Islamic Peace Foundation of India, seeking the removal of allegedly objectionable content from various websites.

Qasmi, in a newly revised list submitted April 12, sought action against Facebook India, Facebook Inc, Google Inc, Orkut, Youtube Inc and Blogspot.
