Palghar (Maharashtra), March 24, 2015: Mohammed Farooq Dhada, father of Shaheen Dhada, whose Facebook post had created a nationwide stir in 2012, on Tuesday said the credit for the Supreme Court verdict striking down Section 66A of Information Technology Act, 2000, "must go to my daughter".

A pleased Dhada said: "I never scolded her for (the post) and supported her always as she had done nothing wrong. We are happy by the verdict and all credit must go to my daughter."

His son Shakil said he had spoken to his sister Shaheen who "has welcomed the SC ruling and is very happy about it".

The duo also assured that they would support anybody else who faces a similar situation in future and urged the youth to emulate her example.

Shaheen became a national celebrity after she her Facebook post questioned a spontaneous shutdown in Maharasthra, at the funeral of the late Shiv Sena patriarch Bal Thackeray on November 19, 2012 and her friend Renu Srinivasan 'liked' it.

Reacting to the verdict, Renu's father said: "I was shocked by their arrest then. They had done nothing wrong."

A happy and relieved Renu said: "I shall continue to speak out my mind through social media networks."
