Obscene Act in Public

Today we see many webseries and many people on YouTube and social media platforms use obscene words / Slangs then why they are not booked under this section -

Section 294 of the Indian Penal Code lays down the punishment for obscene acts or words in public

How big platforms are publicly publishing such obscene webseries, why they are not booked ?

Please explain.

you yourself said that this on line expression.  So one has to see it only if he wants.  Crime starts when one logs insuch app/website and starts displaying it to public at large.


sorry Mr. Sushir Kumar, your answer doesn't make any sense to me
