The internet has contributed in many of the cases, in creating some and promoting others in the country.

The Facebook Girls From Palghar
The Facebook post commenting over the bandh on the death of the Shiv Sena leader Bal Thackeray by the 21 year old Shaheen Dhada, which was ‘liked’ by Rinu Srinivasan, another 21 year old from Palghar, Maharashtra led to their arrest. It created turbulence in the nation. The girls were arrested over the charge of sedition for posting and liking the comment that was considered illicit.
