This is an interesting story on the BBC at the moment.
Police in India have arrested a woman they say criticised on Facebook the shutdown of the city of Mumbai after the death of politician Bal Thackeray. A woman friend who "liked" the comment was also arrested, they said.
The women, accused of "hurting religious sentiments", were released on bail after appearing in court in the town of Palghar, police told the BBC.
It seems quite amazing, to me at least, that women can be arrested for making comments that in no way promote violence, criminality or anything that could be deemed in any way immoral. Basically these women critisised the shutdown of the city of Mumbai after the death of the controversial politician Bal Thackeray.
Anyone else find it odd that countries like India still don't allow freedom of speech for women?
