Shaheen Dhada, who had posted the comment on Facebook, said, “ It was a horrifying experience and now I am finally relieved.” Dhada who had reopened her Facebook account some time later said, “While I am careful about what I put up on the networking site, I am not fearful about expressing myself.”
Rinu Srinivasan who was in the dock for ‘liking’ Dhada’s post said, “While whatever happened was wrong, I am not intimidated by it. The incident has only taught me to be more cautious about what is put up on social networking sites. I am very happy that the charges are finally dropped and we can get on with our lives.”
When asked about her plans for the future, Srinivasan, who likes to sing, said, “ I have collaborated with four friends to form a band titled ‘One Roof’ and we will be putting up a video on YouTube of a Tamil song called ‘Facebook mania’.” She added, however, that the song was not about the incident.
Dhada, meanwhile, plans to pursue an MBA in human resources.
