I am not, and this is not a “knee-jerk” reaction. The “why” I have written about here, and so have many others.
Laws are not always just, or sound, and the laws against defamation/ slander/ libel are definitely not – just and sound. We can’t do anything about the Indian constitution or Indian politicians, but we can stand up for free speech. You may not like what some one says about you – it may be lies of the worst kind, but the fact remains that he has the right to say what he wants to say. If you don’t stand up for someone’s rights when they are threatened, no one else will when yours are. The “right to free speech” must always be an absolute one.
If this makes sense, then read this Blogbharti post and follow it to the “Stop Watching NDTV” blog.
