Bullying attacks free speech from ordinary secular bloggers in India

Sonia Faleiro has a sobering article in the New York Times on the erosion of free speech in India by intimidation, link here
Forces trying to make India into a religious country, Hindu, have been “blamed”. But what seems notable that rather obscure bloggers, who might not normally have reasonably been on a radar screen for their readership volumes, have been attacked and some have self-censored. The government seems rather unconcerned.
