Facebook Bans Indian Accounts For Using The "C" Word!

I've been getting messages that the social networking giant, Facebook has began banning several accounts that used a most common Hindi slang word that begins with 'C'. While the derogatory word used in Hindi may call for account ban, it's definitely upset the The All Assam Chutia Students' Union (Aacsu). The pronunciation differs and it's pronounced as 'soo-ti-yaa' but Facebook has one rule for everyone.

This step taken by Facebook seems to be sequential to the policies set by the Indian government that no derogatory content would be allowed to be posted on the site. What do you think?
The government is full of 'C's (not limited to the FB banned 'C's): Controls, Caveats, Corruption and Cover-ups.

Take away my freedom to say what I want to say (meaning, take away my internet) and there's so little keeping me from carrying my frustration with the government on to the streets.

As you can see, I have very strong feelings about freedom on the internet.
