On September 10, Newslaundry and the Internet Freedom Foundation hosted FoE Con 2022, a forum that brought together media personalities and leading voices in the legal sphere to map the media and regulatory framework in contemporary India.
The panel discussion “Lessons from the Emergency” was moderated by independent journalist Neha Dixit. She was joined by journalist and author Kalpana Sharma and senior advocate Chandra Uday Singh.
Kalpana explained how orders at the time “were more or less against publications and not individual journalists”. The discussion spanned how the Emergency played out, its repercussions, and the role of journalism throughout.
