An unelected king-maker dies.  His followers shutdown the city.

1 woman speaks truth to power, and gets arrested.  Her uncle’s business gets destroyed by thugs.

Welcome to opression, social media style.

As India’s financial capital shut down for the weekend funeral of a powerful politician linked to waves of mob violence, a woman posted on Facebook that the closures in Mumbai were “due to fear, not due to respect.”

In her Facebook comment on Sunday, 21-year-old Shaheen Dhanda wrote: “People like Thackeray are born and die daily and one should not observe a ‘bandh’ [shutdown] for that.”

Her 20-year-old friend Renu Srinivasan ‘liked’ the status.

For that, both women were arrested.
