Posting on Facebook - Twitter can destroy your lives - Freedom of speech

Tip: If you are a tourist visiting India or a local be careful of your speech.Anything can offend anyone and from the news articles the street law supersedes the law of the land and the law of the land is also twisted 66A. Also the law of the land has made it clear that any getting offended can file a complaint. So do not talk politics or about politicians or anything that could be deemed offensive to anyone.

Facebook can be a dangerous place in some democratic countries where freedom of speech it subdued by dangerous laws like 66A.

So if you have a college friend on facebook affiliated to a political group ,they could complain and then you could be stuck in the police station for ever. Even for liking a facebook post. So beware before you post (even if you set your profile to friends only but have college friend who finds your views offensive you could be slapped with 66A in places like india. Know the laws of your country . And know from this case any law can be slapped on you
