What you do on Facebook doesn't always *stay* on Facebook
A 21yo girl complains about the shutdown of her town because of a religious funeral in Mumbai. Not all that much different from all of us who complain whenver any President flies into New Orleans and I-10 is blocked off, right?
Not so fast:
The duo were booked under Section 295 (a) of the IPC (for hurting religious sentiments ) and Section 64 (a) of the Information Technology Act, 2000. Though the girl withdrew her comment and apologized, a mob of some 2,000 Shiv Sena workers attacked and ransacked her uncle's orthopaedic clinic at Palghar, north of Mumbai.
A couple of take-aways on this:
1. just because the Zuckerdoods make their site available in countries outside of North America/Europe doesn't mean you should _use it_ like you're in North America and Europe.
2. Was this gal engaging in "free speech" or "yelling fire in a crowded theater?" look at the reaction to her post. My guess is she's a 21yo spoiled princess who didn't like being inconvenienced, and now her family, particularly her uncle, are paying a heavy price as religious fanatics take out their anger on them.
What you do on social media doesn't necessarily always stay there. While I don't expect 2000 people to ransack family businesses if you complain about things in the US, it's important to remember that social media actions have consequences.
