Earlier this month, two women were arrested by the Mumbai police for protesting a state-wide ‘bandh’ on Facebook. The youngsters protested by posting an update on their Facebook profile against ‘bandh’ due to the death of Shiv Sena Chief Bal Thackeray, and later released on bail. The case against the two girls are now being dropped.
This act by the Mumbai police broke up a major controversial debate between the public, people on the Internet, and the politicians as well. With under an immense pressure, the central government has issued a statement that could bring down the misuse of the IT Act, which was used to make the arrests of the two youngsters.
