From the New York Times: news that Shirin Dalvi, the editor of the Urdu newspaper Avadhnama, is being prosecuted under Section 295A of the Indian Penal Code for reprinting a cartoon of the Prophet Muhammed. The newspaper has since closed down. Ms. Dalvi is now out on bail. Ms. Dalvi's lawyer says her freedom of speech is being abridged. It seems that other journalists are among her most outspoken critics. More coverage here from First Post, here from IBN.
