Internet in India right now is the kind that gets you arrested for saying innocuous things that someone may not like and complains to the police about.

Eg: A university professor in Calcutta sent an e-mail containing a cartoon about the state's Chief Minister. He was arrested and thrown in jail and denied bail.

Eg: When a divisive politician died in Bombay, shops shuttered their doors. One woman wrote in Facebook that the closures were more due to fear of what his followers may do to shops that were open than to any respect the shopkeeper may feel for the dead man. Another woman "liked" it. Both were arrested when a local party goon approached the police and said that if the two were not arrested, rioting would take place. Instead of arresting the goon, the police arrested the two 21-year-old girls at night and held them in jail, despite the existence of a Supreme Court order that no woman can be arrested after 7 pm (for fear of rape in police custody).

We are behind China though in pro-active censorship, if that is any consolation.
