India: Bullied for friendship with a Muslim, Hindu woman commits suicide

Social media harassment over friendship with a Muslim man led to the suicide of a Hindu woman in the southern Indian state of Karnataka.

Screenshots of a WhatsApp exchange with a friend, in which the 20-year-old stated that she ‘loved Muslims’, were shared widely on social media.

Following continuous interrogation over her friendship with the man, police authorities say that five people from Hindu hardline groups also visited her house on Saturday to warn her parents.

BBC reported that the woman killed herself the same day.

While the police initially registered a suicide case, their investigation was later widened following reports regarding the role of social media in her death.

A senior police officer told the BBC that the woman had left a suicide note.
