Vijay fan arrested for abusing PM Narendra Modi on Facebook

The police on Monday arrested a Vijay fan for posting derogatory comments about Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Facebook. According to a report in The Times Of India, Thirumurugan (19) was arrested after the BJP district secretary lodged a complaint in Srivilliputhur police station.
Reports also suggest that Thirumurugan took offence to a meme about the controversial GST scene in Mersal and reportedly abused Narendra Modi for the same. He has been booked under section 67 of the Information Technology Act, 2000. If not for Vijay, Mersal will be more remembered for its controversies.
It all started when the BJP condemned some of the factually incorrect references to GST and Digital India in Mersal and asked for cuts. The film later turned into a political debate after the BJP leader H Raja tried to communalise the issue by bringing in Vijay’s religion. After getting unanimous support from celebrities and politicians, the producers decided to not remove scenes from the film.
Directed by Atlee, Mersal tells the story of brothers Vetri and Maaran who fight against medical mafia. Produced by Sri Thenandal Films, the film received positive reviews from critics. Mersal also stars Nithya Menen, Kajal Aggarwal, Samantha, SJ Suryah and Vadivelu in pivotal roles.
