Internet company Yahoo, which is in the docks in an Indian court in Delhi along with other big name Internet companies, said that a civil case it's fighting is without any merit.

According to a report by NDTV, lawyers for the Internet giant said in a Delhi court today that "generalised social evils alleged against some of the prominent social networking websites cannot be fastened onto it (Yahoo)."

Yahoo is fighting allegations in the Delhi court along with 21 Internet companies in India including Facebook, Google and Orkut. The allegation against them is that they have been hosting content that spreads religious hatred and intolerance.

Yahoo argued in court today that none of the content submitted by the plaintiff is hosted on its site as Yahoo only offers e-mail and messenger services.

Yahoo told the court that the lawsuit against it is "motivated and a complete abuse of process of law."
