21-year-old girl arrested for Facebook post slamming Bal Thackeray
SCHOLES | November 19, 2012, 5:42 PM | 36 comments | 0 views


Police on Sunday arrested a 21-year-old girl for questioning the total shutdown in the city for Bal Thackeray’s funeral on her Facebook account.

Another girl who ‘liked’ the comment was also arrested.

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.

The 21-year-old arrested for her Facebook post was among many who aired opinions on social networking sites.

“Her comment said people like Thackeray are born and die daily and one should not observe a ‘bandh’ (city shutdown) for that,” Police Inspector Uttam Sonawane told the Mumbai Mirror.

Despite widespread concerns, there were no reports of unrest in Mumbai itself on the day of Bal Thackeray’s crematon.,

In recent months, the country has shown sensitivity to criticism of its politicians, sparking criticism in turn from freedom of speech campaigners.

In September, campaigners were outraged by the arrest in Mumbai on charges of sedition of a cartoonist for his anti-corruption drawings. The charges were later dropped.

    Even in US a uk guy was arrested for posting something about Obama….
    so by your logic US is also being run by some goons…..

    are those statements directed at me ?

    @ank_16n

    – I am not saying what happened is wrong or right.
    – I have just published a news item.
    – I have not said anything to anybody.

    If you ask me what are my views, by above comment “No Comments”.

  3. ank_16n

    SCHOLES—I was not Replying to u …i was just expressing my views…..

    “”If you ask me what are my views, by above comment “No Comments”.””
    I don’t want to offend u but according to me If u post an article voluntarily it do reflect your point of view.So I don’t need to know your views.

    bal thakery is underworld…………… ghundey hain ye log

  5. SCHOLES

    Nope, it doesnt reflect my point of view.

    Let’s say this is purely news item, somebody got arrested, and how and why and that is reported.

    Now I fail to see what point of view it reflects, other than the fact that a news item is posted.

    Also, if you are not aware of I am a old member/ex moderator of this website. So i whenever server is good keep on posting, stuff which is interesting, and which can give debates and forum to expression for you people.

      SCHOLES—by saying this–“” but according to me If u post an article voluntarily it do reflect your point of view.So I don’t need to know your views.””

      I meant –was there are thousands of news article on which debates can take place….if u have chosen this article that means u must be having some Views about this article….
      and didn’t matter whether your views are for or against…..
      it simply means u do have some point of view about it..!!

    I hope the supporters of this terrorist are proud!

    That goes to all the members who have been talking about great Thackarey was for Maharasthrians here on NG.

    1. TopShot_Now Its Dabangg2

      If your comment is directed toward me then I request you read my last comment I made on this thread.

      Rather I copy paste that here-
      If I have a heart to defend good things I have stomach to stand against wrong things as well.
      This arrest thing is height of stupidity. Such a lethargic action shows how pathetic is our system. I am in support of speech of freedom and will be forever.
      But sad part is that this is not the first time it happened and saddest part is this will not be the last time it happens.

      Though i would like to say this- May be its in my nature but I don’t label a person a good or bad as a whole. I rather take inspiration from what good he did and take a lesson from what bad he did. It always will be like this.
      For me there are lot of inspiration I can draw from Balasaheb and same time a lot of lessons learnt on how things should not be .

      1. Rosh

        @TopShot, you have been quite balanced in your assessment of Thackeray during our discussion in the other thread looking into both the good and bad of what he did.

        However, thats where I respectfully disagree from you. You can do good and bad, and I can do good and bad. Because we are imperfect.

        But Osama Bin Laden was not imperfect, he was pure evil. There is no amount good he could have done to earn an iota of respect from me, much less be an inspiration. Same for every other tyrant – Saddam Hussein, Gaddafi, Hitler. They all did a lot of good for some people who supported them till their death and still do.

        These supporters may have thought yeah he is doing some bad things, but look at the good as well – he helped me, my family, my community. But by doing so, they indirectly supported their evil actions, let them happen in front of their eyes. Bal Theckeray falls in that category.

        1. rockie_Dabhangg2

          @Rosh: Can you name a single politician in India of current times who has not done any bad thing?

          1. rockie_Dabhangg2

            Heck there are even people who hate Mahatma Gandhi…… who is Balasaheb Thakre in front of him??

          2. rockie_Dabhangg2

            You think Balasaheb was a terrorist, I think Sonia Gandhi is a bigger one.
            You dont ask questions about why there is no investigation on the 100’s of scams coming out from congress members?

            Adarsh scam
            2G scam
            CWG scam
            Coal gate scam

            These all are huge and gigantic scams involving 100’s of crores of tax payers money.

            How did Robert Vadhra gain soo much property in so much less time?

            Why do people turn blind eye to all these??

        2. TopShot_Now Its Dabangg2

          @rosh… what your are saying is right in a sense. But if you think of it, there is no leader in the history of a mankind who had done only good things. If you think of anyone plz name it. Coz I can not think of anyone.
          take a example of some of the great leaders in the history. Say Nepolian. He is hell lot of a leader. But there are big number of people who hates him. for them he was evil. (especially people in Bolshevik area.)
          Take an e.g. of Lincoln. He had his fair share of haters who thought he was evil. Hecks he even got killed by one of them.

          So what I am saying is there is no man in the world (not just leader but any human) who does only good things or bad things. If there are supporters there will be haters. For someone you are an Angel for others you are evil. Because mainly Good and Bad things are subjective.
          Thats why I said admire the good things while condemning the bad things. and don’t follow anyone blindly.

        3. TopShot_Now Its Dabangg2

          @rosh.. and by the way I am not against you if you if you think balasaheb is evil. If you have experienced ‘the shivsena’ effect and you hated it then its absolutely ok to say so. As on the other thread Jaspu mentioned that he was in mumbai for 2yrs and has seen the things. So its completly justifiable if he says openly that Thackrey is evil.

          My whole motto behind making so much arguments was requesting people outside Maharashtra that ‘ don’t judge someone/somthing based on stupid news channels.’

    2. ank_16n

      Rosh—if its directed at me than I want to clear certain things—

      1. I m not an Maharasthrian.

      2. I don’t know what balasaheb had done for Marathi people.

      3. Neither I love balasaheb nor do i hate him.

      4. Its not about Hindu or Muslim its about Indians.

      5. 1st read my comments carefully before replying……I didn’t even mention Balasaheb….My only thing was Its an odd one case which shouldn’t be given so much hype as it would encourage more such cases and it happens every where….

      Even when P chidamram son Arrested a guy for posting something against him then also i said the same thing that its an odd one case…..

    “Even in US a uk guy was arrested for posting something about Obama….
    so by your logic US is also being run by some goons…..”
    Really? Link pls. That is against the first amendment, which provides freedom os speech and prohibits any law against people speaking out

    1. Rosh

      Lol, anyone who watches a bit of US news would see the kind of racist hatred that is aimed at Obama by the tea-baggers. As long as they are not planning to assassinate him, they have the right to do that.

      But then anyone who spends some time on NG would know not to take Ank16 seriously, so shame to us :P

    2. ank_16n

      Roy—Its a 5-6 months old news….where two Uk guys were arrested for either posing something about obama or America…
      I saw it in News channel….
      If u would have watched news channel u would have known…

      I don’t have any link right now as i saw it in News channel not an article……
      but if i find a link somewhere i would definitely make u read it…..

  8. Huzefa

    this is height of insanity, poor girl bechari gundo me phas gai. aur ng par abhi bhi aise log hay jo is terrorist ke gham me mare ja rahe hay. sale ki shakal nahi dekhi jarahi thi itni phitkar thi is gunde ki shakal par.

  9. Tashan

    Allah bachaye teri jaan ke larki gundo main phas gayi….hahaha par hamara kya karne do jo karte hain….@huzefa dafa kar yar humara kya lena dena

    1. TopShot_Now Its Dabangg2

      Thats the thing tashan. Good to see You understand this. As we sitting in India are not the right person to comment on what is going in Pakistan, same way you can not get a full picture of what is going on here. Thats what I and few others were trying to tell Huzefa. But he keeps on spilling venom on every thread.

    2. ank_16n

      Tashan bhai Allah ne larki ko gundo se bacha liya hai ….
      Girls have got bail….yesterday evening…..

    ““Even in US a uk guy was arrested for posting something about Obama….”

    A guy arrested for posting something? … the member who wrote this has no idea at all how many posts are made in US against Obama in Facebooks and forums, or publicly

    1. ank_16n

      Nirjhar—I don’t want to argue….what i saw in news channel some 5-6 months back i wrote it….

      Its not my mistake that u don’t see News channel……

  11. TopShot_Now Its Dabangg2

    If I have a heart to defend good things I have stomach to stand against wrong things as well.
    This arrest thing is height of stupidity. Such a lethargic action shows how pathetic is our system. I am in support of speech of freedom and will be forever.

  12. aravind_66

    this is just insane…..now the girl must live with the fear of possibility of a shiv sena attack everyday….

  13. rockie_Dabhangg2

    If police has arrested that girl then def there will be something more to it.
    There are 1000’s of people posting bad about Balasaheb Thakre and only 1 gets arrested.

    Guys use some common sense …. dont trust media folks blindly. They will keep on blabbering things so as to sell their news.

    Or maybe that inspector had some personal grudge with her and he is trying to get to her using this.

    1. ank_16n

      rockie_Dabhangg2—— it can be possible that someone had filed a complaint against her….
      But the point is police has done stupidity by arresting her …….
      they shouldn’t have even filed the case in first place……

      moreover media is given this news un-necessary hype as this would encourage more such Complaint against those who write something about some public figure…..
      Its an odd case in millions so should be dealt as that…but what more 200+ 24*7 news channel can do for timepass…..

      1. rockie_Dabhangg2

        Exactly Media is pumping this because they want to sell their news.

        Its their business. They have to pump anything and everything which evokes extreme reactions.

        Balasaheb Thakre …. naam lete hai there are people with POLAR views and def such news get high visibility.

    2. TopShot_Now Its Dabangg2

      @rockie bhau.. ti pan ek shakyata ahe. He media wale thackrey yanchya navakhali kahi hi khapawatil..

      See this image. This is stupid News Channels.
