WHO DARES YOU? THE BLOGGERS?
READ THIS FIRST.
The Fundamental Rights in India enshrined in the Part III of the Constitution of India guarantee civil liberties such that all Indians can lead their lives in peace and harmony as citizens of India.
These include individual rights common to most liberal democracies, such as equality before law, freedom of speech and expression, freedom of association and peaceful assembly, freedom to practice religion, and the right to constitutional remedies for the protection of civil rights by means of writs such as habeas corpus.
Violations of these rights result in punishments as prescribed in the Indian Penal Code, subject to discretion of the judiciary.
The Fundamental Rights are defined as basic human freedoms which every Indian citizen has the right to enjoy for a proper and harmonious development of personality.
The six fundamental rights are:
Right to equality
RIGHT TO FREEDOM
Right against exploitation
Right to freedom of religion
Cultural and educational rights
Right to constitutional remedies
YOU ARE ALL NODDING YOUR HEADS RIGHT?

READ HOW a blogger C.KUNTE WAS FORCED TO APOLOGIZE HERE
APOLOGISE FOR WHAT? FOR THIS (scroll down when you open the page,it is the 17th titled irresponsible)
DO copy and keep it.
THE PHRASE COGITO ERGO SUM HAS APPARENTLY BEEN FORGOTTEN BY Ms BARKHA DUTT.
AS ALSO this most famous of all.
”The test of democracy is freedom of criticism.”
WHY THE FEAR Ms DUTT ? PRAY,DO TELL.
[EDITED TO ADD]

“If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.”
PS :- ”IS THIS TRUE OR NOT?”, IS WHAT SOME PEOPLE ASK.
WELL ,I TRIED SEARCHING A LOT ALL OVER THE NET.
ALL THAT CAME UP WAS MORE AND MORE RANTINGS AGAINST THE MEDIA’S HIGH HANDEDENESS AND THE CONTEMPT FOR THEIR HOLIER THAN THOU ATTITUDE.
WHAT IS THE TRUTH?I DON’T KNOW.
BUT IF THIS IS TRUE,THEN THIS NEEDS TO BE HEARD.
IF NOT,THEN SURELY AN APOLOGY ALA Mr C KUNTE WOULD DO WONT IT Ms DUTT?
I have always been an admirer of the way you report Ms Dutt,from your Kargil days..
Though in hindsight it seems to me that it was a little too much ,too fast for you.
The fame that is.
However,your coverage of the mumbai attacks sowed the seeds of doubt in my mind as in many others too.
I am sure there were other journalists who were pathetic,more irresponsible and plain incompetent.Why are you being singled out?
Well,the standards expected from you and from NDTV are high to say the least.
And if what is written above is the truth ,then I am sure you too would agree that the ‘freedom ‘ needs to be preserved at all cost.
Even if you are the victim Ms Dutt.
For,the pros of reporting/discussing/talking about something like this (which may turn out to be either true or false,) are greater than the cons don’t you think?
Atleast, if this is false,you can be credited for having kept us on our toes.
So that tomorrow, this does not indeed become a horrendous reality.(If indeed it already hasn’t)
