Congratulations to the Maharashtra Government for taking the lead in enacting the first ever law in the country to protect the media and journalists, who have been paying a heavy price for upholding their right to "free and fearless reporting" of news and views. The Maharashtra Media Persons and Media Institutions (Prevention of Violence and Damage or Loss to Property) Act, 2017, adopted by both the Houses of the State's legislature early this month, covers all journalists and media organizations and makes the attacks on journalists and media establishments punishable with both fines and jail terms. The Act, however, also penalizes its wilful misuse by journalists or media organizations.
