(Worthy News) - A Christian teenager in northern India was jailed for 12 days after anti-Hindu comments appeared on a fake Facebook account in his name, sources said.
Sandeep Kumar, 18, christened Karan Anthony, was released on bail 12 days after being arrested on Aug. 23 and charged with posting anti-Hindu comments on Facebook in Uttar Pradesh state. The University of Allahabad student of agricultural sciences was arrested when members of the Hindu extremist Rudra Sena in his home area of Kasganj District filed a complaint with police.
“I did not make any posts on Facebook,” Anthony told Morning Star News. “It was my good friend who falsely framed me by joining hands with Rudra Sena activists.” [ Source: Morningstar News (Read More...) ]
