Where the mind is without fear[edit]

Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high
Where knowledge is free
Where the world has not been broken up into fragments
By narrow domestic walls
Where words come out from the depth of truth
Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection
Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way
Into the dreary desert sand of dead habit
Where the mind is led forward by thee
Into ever-widening thought and action
Into that heaven of freedom, my Father, let my country awake.
a famous poem by Rabindranath Tagore about freedom of expression

Freedom of expression is the matrix[edit]

  • Freedom of expression is the matrix, the indispensable condition, of nearly every other form of freedom.

George Bernard Shaw[edit]

“If you have an apple and I have an apple and we exchange these apples then you and I will still each have one apple. But if you have an idea and I have an idea and we exchange these ideas, then each of us will have two ideas.” — George Bernard Shaw

Satyameva Jayate[edit]

Satyameva Jayate is India’s national motto. The English translation of the Sanskrit is “Truth Alone Prevails.”

W. Somerset Maugham[edit]

“If a nation or an individual values anything more than freedom, it will lose its freedom; and the irony is that if it is comfort or money it values more, it will lose that too.” - W. Somerset Maugham Posted by Mahitgar (talk) 08:57, 5 October 2008 (UTC)

Manmohan Singh[edit]

NEW DELHI, April 19 (Bernama) -- Amidst increasing criticism by the Left parties against the free market forces in the wake of price rise, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Friday said that his government has followed the 'hands-off' policies and will remain committed to liberalisation.

"We remain committed to economic reform and liberalisation. In ancient India, a monarch was regarded as a good king if he did not interfere too much in the life of the people. That has been our guiding principle as as well," the Press Trust of India(PTI) quoted Manmohan as saying to delegates of the International Institute for Strategic Studies-City India Global Forum.

He said his government was also committed to an environment of freedom "in which creativity and enterprise of our people can find its full and free expression".[1] —Preceding unsigned comment added by Mahitgar (talkcontribs) 09:57, 5 October 2008 (UTC)

Police "booked" students for publishing a magazine including Modi in a "negative faces" collage. BJP workers burnt copies of the magazine.

I would include this in the article, but I am not sure what they mean by "booked". Cheers! Nicolas1981 (talk) 11:24, 12 June 2014 (UTC)

Potential copyright violations[edit]

I have declined the G12 speedy deletion for this as this link very clearly has copied the wikipeida page. I stongly suspect it's the same case with this one as it was posted in July 2011 and the majority of the text in our article is present in the original version in 2008. If anyone still has concerns I suggest using {{subst:copyvio|url=insert URL here}} and posting at Wikipedia:Copyright problems. Sarahj2107 (talk) 13:28, 19 October 2016 (UTC)

Censorship mention in lede[edit]

This addition is well-sourced by three reliable sources. Perhaps it should be re-worded and not be in the lede, but the content is well-sourced.
Any utterance about the government is duly removed through regressive legal practices or trolled in social media through paid members of BJP IT Cell.

None of the source you mentioned have those words. The statement "Any utterance about the government is duly removed through regressive legal practices or trolled in social media through paid members of BJP IT Cell."is definitely WP:OR. Crawford88 (talk) 04:34, 25 October 2017 (UTC)
Someone else removed it... Jim1138 (talk) 04:51, 25 October 2017 (UTC)
Also, I don't think it's relevant in the lead. There's nothing to suggest in your cited sources or otherwise that the curtailment of FoE is a recent phenomenon. It looks better suited at Freedom_of_expression_in_India#Practical_constraints_and_curtailments. Crawford88 (talk) 12:29, 25 October 2017 (UTC)
