NDTV India ban: Press freedom in India is still better than in China, Bangladesh and Turkey

There could be arguments about whether or not Parrikar should have refrained from raking up an old topic but the narrative of him being complicit in influencing the e-commerce firm's decision is certainly dubious. #Aamir Khan #JNU #Nationalism #Manohar Parrikar #NDA #Union Defence Minister #Snapdeal #Intolerance #Freedom of Expression #Dissent #Anti nationals #sloganeering

Free speech: Demonisation of majority is not a short-cut to liberalism and plurality
