2 men spend 12 days in jail for Facebook comments against Cong

India Today - Even as the uproar over the recent arrest of two Thane girls over an allegedly "inflammatory" message posted on social networking site Facebook is yet to fade away, a similar case has now come to light wherein two men from Mumbai had to spend 12 days behind the bars and even lose their jobs.

In the shocking example of the alleged misuse of Information and Technology Act , the men -- K.V. Rao and Mayank -- were arrested for allegedly posting offensive comments against some Congress leaders on their Facebook group earlier this year. (Facebook, Web)

You're Indian, then?

edit: Then what's the problem? Do they have similar laws where you live?

Depends where you live. They aren't too tolerant of it in the UK either.
