Not the Quacks! – Dear Newspapers, Stop Giving Wakefield a Platform »« Cleansing the Palate

Inflammatory Comments

An angry mob wounded four people after it attacked a shop in Jaipur, Rajasthan. The reason? The shopkeeper posted a facebook message that was deemed “insulting” to religion.

And the police responded quickly breaking up the argument but then they did something funny.

They lodged three FIRs (First Information Reports), one against the mob. The other against the shopkeeper. And the the third against the original poster of the message.

Way to encourage mob justice. All you are doing is allowing religious extremists to dictate what freedom of speech means.
