Shaheen Dhada and Rinu Srinivasan, the two Palghar girls who were recently embroiled in the Facebook controversy following Bal Thackeray’s death, will be speaking to the students of Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad (IIM-A) on December 21, to share their experiences with them. 

“Prof Anil Gupta of IIM-A invited us to meet the students of IIM so Shaheen could share her experience with regard to the facebook controversy,” said Farukh Dhada, Shaheen’s father.

Shaheen will be accompanied by her father, and her brother Shakeel. They will leave for Ahmedabad on December 20.

Rinu, on the other hand, will be making a trip to Chennai before she goes to Ahmedabad. She is recording a music album titled One Roof, which will be released in four languages — Hindi, Tamil, Kannada and Malayalam — and will also have a song based on Facebook and friendship.

“I will be leaving to Chennai this on December 13 to record the album, and will be visiting Muzik Lounge School of Audio Engineering to complete my admission procedure,” said Rinu.

“We will be visiting IIM-A to meet the students and to talk about the whole controversy which led to a nationwide debate over the issue of freedom of speech. I am very excited to speak in front of top B-school students,” she added.
