A woman author, who allegedly suggested in a Facebook post that those left out of the National Register of Citizens, be put in detention camps after being sterlised, has been booked by Kerala Police.
A case was registered against her under Section 153 of the Indian Penal Code for promoting enmity between religions and spreading hatred through social media, police said.
"We got a complaint, saying a post put up by one Indira on Facebook promotes enmity between religion and was spreading hatred through social media. We have started a probe," an investigating officer told PTI.
The widely-shared screenshot of the Facebook post, allegedly by Indira, suggests that all those who were left out of the National Register of Citizens (NRC) be put in a detention camp after being sterilised.
When some Facebook account holders countered her argument, she allegedly replied that contraceptive drugs must be mixed in drinking water for a particular community in order to control birth among them.
Her post has since been deleted from Facebook.
