NDTV challenges gag order in Supreme Court

In a recent development, NDTV has challenged the government's one-day ban of its Hindi channel, NDTV India, in the Supreme Court today. The network has questioned the allegations and stated that other channels and newspapers had reported the same information about the terror attack on the air force base in Pathankot.  
NDTV India has been ordered to go off-air on Wednesday (November 9) with the government accusing it of broadcasting sensitive details of January's terror attack in Pathankot.  

Recently, the News Broadcasters Association, the apex body that represents the private television news and current affairs broadcasters,  in a  statement criticised the move and stated, “The government should have seen it from the prism of freedom of the media, which is guaranteed in the constitution and not gone strictly by the regulations under the Cable Act.”

According to the I&B ministry statement, NDTV India compromised national security and risked the country’s strategic assets by airing counter-terror operations undertaken by the security forces.

Defending the ban, Information and Broadcasting Minister Venkaiah Naidu recently said that it was "in the interest of the country's security" and that the barrage of criticism confronted by the government appears "politically inspired."
