NDTV’s Coercive Tactics to Gag MANUSHI
Bizarre Definition & Misuse of Law against Sexual Harassment
-Madhu Purnima Kishwar-
I am both puzzled and honored by the fact that NDTV has singled me out for legal notice for “defamation and slander” after MANUSHI published report on NDTV’s alleged involvement in a mega money laundering scam. Ram Jethmalani had already made public his correspondence with Chidambaram on this scam. But Ram has not been served a legal notice. If anything, Prannoy Roy went and personally pleaded with Jethmalani pleading with him not to take up the case.

NDTV bosses charge me with having used an “anonymous bundle of papers” for putting in the public domain all the charges against them. I repeat what I said in my original article, the bundle of papers may have come from an anonymous source but the documents it contained are official proceedings of Income Tax department as well as court orders…
