With the recent anger over Supreme Court decision to release Cauvery water to Tamil Nadu, India, protests started in Bengaluru and many other Karnataka states. Till 5PM IST today 12th Sep 2016, Facebook trending article in India was “#TamilNadu” but the after which it has been removed by Facebook to prevent spreading hatred between the two States. This has been a commendable move by the Social Media platform whereas some media channels were deliberately spreading false information such as Curfew imposed in Bangalore when the Bangalore Police confirmed that no Section 144 has been implemented. However Curfew has been implemented later on at 5PM confirmed by Bangalore City Police twitter handle. @BlrCityPolice
