Techies take to the streets demanding freedom of speech

Taping their mouth shut — symbol of being gagged — the demonstrators distributed pamphlets and spoke to employees of several IT companies in the area.¬†

The group claims that it has approached Union IT and Communications Minister Kapil Sibbal demanding an amendment in the IT Act “Section 66A was formed to prevent use of Internet as a tool to spread hatred and promote anti-national activities.
