    How anyone could not see it as censorship is beyond me. I hope people pay attention to news like this, because it takes literally very little to bring it to your part of the world, if it isn't already there. Everyone waits for the big, neon flashing light before they call foul, but more often than not, it starts with little signs, small incidents that, while at first seem to be just a single case, starts happening regularly.

    I urge reporters to continue covering such news because the Indian government has been trying hard to pull some kind of censorship on Internet users. There have been incidences when all file sharing sites were banned for days on end because a movie producer complained about piracy to the Indian courts.

    There have been incidences of people jailed because they posted funny pictures/hate comments related to politicians, et cetera.

    I will not say more but I am grateful the international media covers things like this.

    I've heard a lot of people in India are quite unhappy with the current government because of various stuns like this. I really hope the people win. :(
