EDITORIAL

Dear readers,


Freedom to speak one's mind in whatever way one chooses to must be defended at all costs. Right to Freedom of Speech and Expression is not only the lifeblood of Indian democracy and of all democracies everywhere, but is also the most important tool of human development.

However, unrestrained right is not just open to misuse, but would also be most certainly misused one way or the other, sooner or later. And the same goes for the Right to Freedom of Speech and Expression, too. With the advent of 24-hour news channels searching to bag sensational news to up their viewership with little regard to the appropriateness of a premature disclosure or the adverse consequences that might threaten justice or security or both, it is quite clear that the right to free speech is being pushed a bit too far.

Reckless media coverage does more harm than good because too many versions of truth tend to bury the truth forever, which is detrimental to the rule of law and obviously works against the ends of justice. If the media fails to restrain itself, the law and the courts might be forced to draw the line.

(Manish Arora)
