Editors Guild condemns Gujarat action

NEW DELHI: The Editors Guild of India has strongly condemned the action of the Gujarat government in blocking the cable distribution of major news television channels.

The action of the government is a blatant assault on the freedom of the press, it said.

An inquiry team of the Guild, which had probed the media coverage of the Gujarat riots in 2002, had said that blacking out of the legitimate media was not only undemocratic, but would lead to rumours replacing news and thereby cause grave damage to social order.

The Guild demanded action against those responsible for gagging the news channels in Gujarat.
