Tricolour as dp of Facebook, whatsApp or Twitter

It's around few days you surely would have noticed your friends putting their whatsapp DP as national flag of India, or tricolour as the cover pic or profile pic on Facebook or Twitter. It's already in trend to set tricolour as DP on our online profiles.
But did you know, much recently this kind of display of our tricolour was illegal and it's not long when an Industrialist and Congress MP Naveen Jindal had filed a PIL to allow Indians to display their flags as their entity or icon of groups. Supreme Court gave judgement in favor of Naveen Jindal and made a law named 'Flag code of India 2002' which says "The Flag Code of India 2002 permits unrestricted display of the tricolour, consistent with the honour and dignity of the flag,", ruling out the previous law which says 
 "using Indian flag (sic) as entity or group symbol, icon or in any form of title representation is illegal under the Prevention of Insults to National Flag Act, 1971."
