A 21-year-old Indian woman thought Mumbai shouldn’t have been shutdown for the funeral of an Islamophobic leader. Broadcasting such opinions on Facebook was apparently grounds for arrest.
A Muslim graduate student, Shaheen Dhada posted a note (of her iPhone message) on her timeline November 18th, writing, “Every day thousands of people die, but still the world moves on … Today, Mumbai shuts down out of fear, not out of respect.” Her status was written in reference to the death of Bal Thackeray, the late leader of Hindu extremist group Shiv Sena, responsible for repeated waves violence against Muslims in the Maharashtra state, according to the BBC. Another 21-year-old woman, Rinu Shrinivasan, was also arrested by Indian police for stoking “religious enmity.” She’d simply clicked “like” on Dhada’s post.
