To each his own – Hindustan Times

To each his own – Hindustan Times.

Just like our identity is verified before buying a SIM card, there could be a verification for social media. In the days of landline phones without caller id and no mobiles, harassment was very easy, and now it has dropped down a lot as the receiver knows the exact number of the abuser, and there is a real person who could be identified.

Any law could be misused, and arresting the girls for a benign comment was disgusting. But the biggest misuse of 66A is – not applying the law to abusers using really filthy language on social media to intimidate people, especially women.
