Indian police have arrested two women for "hurting religious sentiments" because of something one of them posted on Facebook. One of the women, who were not named by media, posted her displeasure at followers of the right-wing Shiv Shena party shutting down Mumbai following the death of the party's founder, Bal Thackeray. The other woman "liked" the comment, so cops took both of them to jail.
