``We extend our moral support to The Hindu,'' Mr. Antony said.
``The Assembly's decision is very unfortunate. Such things should never have happened in a democracy. A free press is the guardian of democracy,'' he said.
The Hindu is a newspaper that had given priority to national interest from the days of the freedom struggle. ``It has spoken fearlessly on all times for values in the country and its public life.''
Asked about the actions against the media by the Kerala Speaker, Vakkom Purushothaman, Mr. Antony said his Government did not encourage any action against the media. When journalists complained against the police, he had examined the matter and given necessary directions to solve the issue.
