Now for those who are using electrum this is what I have found about how you can claim your Free Bitcoin Cash, and am summarize it:
- Export your private keys.
- Move your fund to a new wallet.
- Wait until the fund is confirmed in the new wallet.
- Find a new wallet which supports Bitcoin Cash ( the options is listed here ).
- Import your keys.
Mostly this is the process, I didn't try it so if you are going to do it, be careful and do more research.
