PRESS FREEDOM: Rana Ayyub says they have tried to silence her journalism

Investigative journalist Rana Ayyub has said that she will not be silenced by the Indian government, despite a series of legal cases against her.

She told BBC Hardtalk’s Stephen Sackur, the Indian government has “tried every tool in the book to silence my voice and my journalism”.

“That’s the cost of speaking truth to power in India,” Ayyub said.

Democrat editor/owner Bill Heaney said: “It’s also the price for speaking truth to power in West Dunbartonshire where The Democrat is banned and boycotted by the anti-democratic SNP council and other elected politcians, but we will not be gagged by them.”
