Dangerous time for people speaking truth in India: Amnesty
A year after Gauri Lankesh was shot dead outside her home in Bengaluru, many other journalists continue to face death threats, attacks and false charges, Amnesty International India said Wednesday, asserting it is a “dangerous” time to speak truth to authorities in India. The rights body said attacks on journalism not only stifle the constitutional right to freedom of speech and expression but also have a “profound silencing effect." The house arrest of civil rights leaders like Gautham Navlakha and Vara Vara Rao, are examples of crackdown on free speech, it said.
