Girls embroiled in Facebook controversy invited by IIM-A

Shaheen Dhada and her friend Renu, who were at the centre of a controversy related to their Facebook post after Shiv Sena chief Bal Thackeray's death, have been invited by the prestigious IIM-A to interact with students.

"Shaheen and Renu have been invited to interact with the students and teachers of the Indian Institute of Management in Ahmedabad, Gujarat. They will be meeting with the professors and students of the institute Dec 21 and 22," Shaheen's father Farooq Dhada told IANS Thursday.

On Nov 18, police arrested Shaheen, who posted a comment on her Facebook questioning the shutdown after Thackeray's death Nov 17 and when he was given a public cremation the next day. Her friend Renu, who had 'liked' the Facebook comment, was also arrested.

"I am glad that I will be able to interact with students and teachers of the top B-school. Professor Anil Gupta emailed us and then spoke to us over the phone. He invited us to meet the students of IIM so that we could share our experiences over the controversy," Shaheen said.

On Nov 29, Mahrashtra Director General of Police Sanjeev Dayal had said that a closure report will be filed in the case. However, it has not been filed yet.
