"Filming people without their permission is ruining life's"

This petition is new legislation that should be enacted to provide citizens with privacy protection from being filmed on the roads & public without their consent and being share on social media and then later turned into a meme.

Smartphones have helped us in investigating crimes and saving lives. On the other hand, they also destroyed lives and career's because they were filmed doing something personal which doesn't concern other individuals lives. These videos are widely shared on social media networks and are also made into memes. Some find it funny and are okay with it, but some sensitive individuals aren't and it's leading them to commit suicide's and being fired from their jobs.

We want to prevent sharing and making memes of such content which don't concern or harm any individual. This not only violates the privacy of an individual but also defames them in the public eye. In civil defamation, a victim can move high court or subordinate courts for seeking damages in the form of monetary compensation from the accused. Section 499 and 500 of the Indian Penal Code provides an opportunity for the victim to file a criminal case for defamation against the accused. Punishment for the guilty person for criminal defamation is simple imprisonment which may extend to two years or fine or both. Under the criminal law, it is bailable, non-cognizable and compoundable offence.
