    Outrage in India over arrest of 2 women for Facebook post criticizing Mumbai shutdown - The Washington Post

    NEW DELHI — Indian officials have arrested one young woman for a Facebook post criticizing the shutdown of Mumbai for the funeral of a powerful Hindu fundamentalist politician. Another young woman was arrested simply for hitting the “likeâ€￾ button next to the comment.

    Analysts and the media Tuesday widely condemned the Maharashtra state government for what they said were attempts to curb freedom of expression.


    Shops and transportation across Mumbai, India’s financial capital, closed Sunday for the death of right-wing leader Bal Thackeray.

    The arrests of the two women Sunday were seen as a move by police to prevent violence by Thackeray’s supporters. Both women were released on bail Monday.

    The women apologized, but angry supporters ransacked an orthopedic hospital run by the uncle of one of the women.

    clearly these muslims have no respect for hindu sentiments after the death of a hindu leader.

    how would the muslims like if we celebrate the the death of muslim leaders like khangressi maulana azan or saddam husein or osama bin laden or ayotallah khomeini

    what a joke so he saved mumbai now he owns mumbai and mumbaikars will eat if shiv sena says mumbaikars will piss if shiv sena says mumbaikars will slap themselves if shiv sena says mumbaikars will bend over if she sena says

    looks like to me you are shiv sena's slaves looks like even after 65 years of independence mumbaikars have not learned to independently

    your signature says "No blind support to any party or person. One simple philosophy" however your actions seems to be opposite.

    We live in a independent nation everybody has the right to express their opinion it is fundamental right dammit which century are you people living in

    clearly tolerence is no the virtue of shiv sainiks. wat ever be the intention of the girl, vandalising a clinic/hospital is not the right thing to do.

    i personally believe girl has done no wrong.

    though i personally think that Bal Thackeray was a great man and the comment probably did hurt the sentiments of a lot of people u can't put everyone in jail just because they have a different opinion.

    21-year-old Shaheen has been granted bail today on cash bond of Rs 15,000, following arrest, after putting up a post on social networking site Facebook, that questioned the total shutdown in the city of Mumbai for Shiv Sena Supremo Bal Thackeray's funeral. Another girl who 'liked' the comment has also been granted bail after being arrested. Earlier on Sunday, the girls were arrested, for a Facebook post that stated, "People like Thackeray are born and die daily and one should not observe a 'bandh' for that


    Cops arrest 10 Shiv sainiks for vandalism over FB comments, party denies links
    Nov 21, 2012, 03.12AM IST TNN[ Nitasha Natu ]

    MUMBAI: More than 24 hours after a mob went on a rampage at a hospital to protest against internet comments over the complete shutdown of Mumbai after Shiv Sena supremo Bal Thackeray's death, the local police arrested 10 people for vandalism. While the Sena denied involvement in the attack on the hospital owned by the uncle of Shaheen Dhada, who posted the remark, local police confirmed those arrested from Palghar, a town 80km north of Mumbai, late Monday were Sainiks.

    On Sunday, Palghar's Sena chief Bhushan Sankhe lodged a complaint against Shaheen, 21, for posting the comment and Rinu Srinivasan, 20, for sharing the comment. The same night, a mob vandalized Dhada Hospital, run by Shaheen's uncle and destroyed the operation theatre and machines. The damages have run up to Rs 18-20 lakh.

    As demands for action against police officers responsible for the arrest of the girls poured in, the 10 were produced at a Palghar court on Tuesday and released on a surety of Rs 7,500 each, on condition they mark their presence at the local police station every Friday. The men do odd jobs and are all Palghar residents. They were booked for rioting and trespass, besides the Criminal Law Amendment Act and Maharashtra Medical Act.

    "All the accused are Sena members," said senior inspector Shrikant Pingle in Palghar.

    However, the local Sena unit denied it. "The men arrested are merely incensed locals who couldn't control their emotions after they noticed the post online. Sainiks weren't involved in the vandalism, most of us were at Bal Thackeray's funeral at Shivaji Park or watching it on television. Why would we shy away from taking responsibility for an attack had we actually carried it out?" said Uttam Pimpale, Sena's deputy president in Palghar municipal council.

    Pimpale added that the arrests actually benefited the girls as the riotous mob "could even have entered their homes to harm them".

    Despite Sena claims, party members from Palghar crowded the courtroom the entire afternoon on Tuesday, concerned about the fate of the accused. They also arranged for two vehicles to whisk away the accused after they got bail.

    "We just want peace in Palghar. The girls have already apologized for their comments and we don't want to stretch the matter further. The Dhadas are a well-known family in the city and we wish them well. In fact, Shaheen's uncle, Dr Abdul Dhada, has treated many of us whenever we have been unwell," Pimpale said.

    "The prosecution had demanded the custody of the accused for procuring names of their associates, to gather more evidence and to ascertain the reason why considerable damage was caused to the hospital. But the court observed that police custody wasn't necessary and remanded the accused to magisterial custody," said defence counsel Gopal Barve.

    All policeman who arrested that girl should be suspended. All protesters of shiv sena should be jailed and people who covered his deadbody with national flag should be jailed.
