A youth has been arrested from Uttar Pradesh's Ballia district for allegedly posting an "objectionable" tweet, asking India to be made an Islamic country, police said on Thursday.

Rehan, a resident of Chachaiyan village in Nagra, on Wednesday posted maps of India and Pakistan on Twitter and wrote India should be made an Islamic state, said Nagra Station House Officer Devendra Nath Dubey.

He said an FIR was lodged against Rehan by sub-inspector J Singh and he was later arrested.

A probe is under way, he said.
