Bengaluru: City-based writer, journalist and columnist Chetana Tirthahalli has filed a complaint against a person in the Hanumant Nagar police station here.
She has alleged that one Madhusudan Gowda has been posting highly objectionable and indecent comments on her Facebook wall. The post also contain threat, she has alleged.
He has threatened her that even his name was blocked, comments would be posted in different accounts.
The police said that the comments were simply nauseating. Even decent persons would not be able even to read them. Often fictiotious user names are used to denigrate those they hate. It is possible that Madhusudan Gowda could be a fake name, although a photo appears therewith.
They have said that all right-thinking persons should petition to the owners of the social media sites to monitor and moderate the comments on their pages and to block misuse.
Speaking to this correspondent, a top police officer said that such comments are put by people without character and courage, taking shelter of the Internet freedom. He precisely put it as ‘ShikhanDi yuddha’ with an allusion to the epic of Mahabharat.
Shameless acts of the spineless:
