We restricted access in India to categories of content in response to requests from government agencies, including law enforcement agencies and the India Computer Emergency Response Team within the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology. We also restricted access to content in categories these agencies identified as illegal that have been brought to our attention by non-government entities, such as NGOs and members of the Facebook community. The majority of the content was restricted under local laws against anti-religious and hate speech that could cause unrest and disharmony within India.
