In an unprecedented draconian action Government of India has imposed one day ban, November 9, on the NDTV India for not following the rule 6(1)(p) of cable TV Network Rules 1994, for showing the coverage of the Pathankot attack which has compromised the security and sovereignty of the country. This is a naked violation of freedom of press and freedom of expression guaranteed under Indian Constitution. It reminds us of the dark days of Emergency.
In Solidarity With NDTV, we demand that all Indian Media Should GO OFF AIR, STOP PRINTING, STOP PUBLISHING, On November 9. In Solidarity With NDTV Countercurrents.org will not be publishing on November 9.
