He was also asked to take down a few tweets in which he had alleged the educational start-up to be a "pyramid scheme".

During the court proceedings, Poonia has said to the court that neither had he downloaded any curriculum from the educational start-up WhiteHatJr nor did he hack into their systems and therefore he is willing to suffer any injunction in the court. The next hearing on the case is scheduled on January 6.

However, the court said "there has to be a difference between healthy and abusive discussion". There's nothing to learn from here. Meanwhile, WhiteHat Jr stated it exclusively focuses on coding as a skill for children between 8 and 14 years of age. My intention was and is only to expose these false and unethical business practices, generate public debate on important issues that could affect a whole generation of youngsters who buy into this false propaganda.

"I can not get out of this fact that a person thinks he is doing right when he is posting [re-posting] somebody's posts...not even knowing who is the person posting it, whether that person has a mala fide intention or whether that person has some adverse interest... and still claim that I am right. I will be filing a detailed response to their claims".

The coding for kids platform has filed an INR 14 Cr ($1.9 Mn) defamation case against Malpani, seeking a permanent injunction restraining defamation, infringement of trademarks, unfair competition, damages and more. One of the reasons the company was being addressed in such a fashion, he argued, is for its claims to make children Elon Musk, engineer-industrialist and one of the world's richest persons, and for using a campaign called "Wolf Gupta", which shows a child as someone who could go on to earn crores.

White Hat Jr. filed a suit against Pradeep Poonia at the Delhi High Court, for infringement of its trademark "WhiteHat Jr." and defamation.

The lawsuit has alleged that Malpani has made several "derogatory imputations" about WhiteHat Jr in his tweets. That case will be heard at the Delhi High Court on Tuesday.

The lawsuit also accuses "Poonia of publicly sharing phone numbers of WhiteHat Jr employees and making strong accusations such as likening the startup's marketing tactics to "child sexual abuse", said the report citing the lawsuit on Monday".

Several others have taken up social media as a platform to support the critics.

"The malicious intent underlying the Defendant's systematic campaign against the Plaintiff is apparent in the attempts by Bibox Labs to discourage the parents of its target consumer base to send their children to coding classes (which is the Plaintiff's primary service) and instead to enrol for the it's programmes".
