Several restrictions are imposed on people for voicing out their opinions on social media. Remember the Mumbai girl who was put into jail for a harmless facebook posts who was criticizing the Maharashtra band on the demise of Bal Thackeray?
Often, we also see people being grilled and criticized on the social media for merely voicing out their opinion on their personal twitter accounts or Facebook posts. The power of social media is immense and we are well aware of the influence of the mass media on people across the globe. But, that should not restrict people to express their personal issues on several incidences.
The voice of dissent is the voice of change and development, and hence it should never be curbed. Mostly, the tweets and facebook posts that criticize the policies of ruling parties in any country are often treated provocation and are charged under sedition which is extremely wrong.
