congress gag

Congress is all set to pass a bill that will censor free flow of news on websites over the net. Barely four months after dropping its proposal to force tv channels to show only "authorized" feed during security emergencies, the govt is now seeking to sensor news portals and other websites, that too even at normal times.

So next time if quottrochi flees away with our money, or sajjan kumar or jagdish tytler and allowed to go scott free, you and i have no way to know it. The govt shall decide what we can know and what not.

With most of the news channels already towing the congress line (many of them get large revenues from advertisements from the central govt), this new bill will make the flow of information almost impossible.What more we cannot even get info on net. We all know how unpopular congress is over internet because there is a free flow of info here.

On 1 hand Govt "boasts" of passing RTI act..........and on other hand it is planning to introduce such laws! Congress have already modified history and remove traces of Lal Bahadur Shastri, Subhash Chandra Bose, Sardar Patel, Bhagat Singh etc so that people have the impression that it was only "gandhi" and "nehru" who got us freedom! Now what do they plan to do by Gagging every citizen??

There is a famous saying "Chor ki dadhi mein tinka". The Honest shall not fear anything while the culprit is always busy in hiding things. If the govt is so clear why does it want to take away our constitutional right of "Freedom Of Speech" that too in normal time!!

Chances are that this blog and many others like this maybe close very soon because it seems Speaking TRUTH in India would be considered as a crime from now on!
