MUMBAI: The News Broadcasters Federation (NBF) has welcomed the decision of the Supreme Court to protect NBF president and Republic Media Network’s editor-in-chief and founder Arnab Goswami from arrest.

“It is a clear indication that truth will prevail and the faith in the judiciary is something we as a body always take pride in. There was an attempt to intimidate Arnab Goswami by filing more than 100 FIRs which hasn’t deterred him from performing his duty to his best of knowledge and the show will continue to raise issues which concern the common man and affect his livelihood,” NBF stated in its release.

"NBF is also pleased with the order that refused to place restraint or restrictions on the media, thus upholding the freedom of expression and press freedom," said, NBF secretary general R Jai Krishna.

"We wholeheartedly welcome the Supreme Court's verdict granting three weeks of interim protection and no coercive action against Arnab Goswami. The apex court ruling is a body blow to the Congress party's attempt at muzzling the freedom of the press in general and Republic TV in particular" said Riniki B. Sharma, chairperson and managing director, Pride East Entertainments

 “It’s a great relief to see the country’s highest judiciary giving Arnab protection from arrest and it’s a welcome decision” said Fourth Dimension Media CEO Shankar B.

"This is a big victory for the media and the judiciary has once again saved the media from being intimidated from the politicians or governments. We stand by Arnab and believe he will come out stronger after this." said Sanjive Narain, founder, Prag News (Assam).

"Any form of physical attack, abuse or instigation for violence against a journalist should be condemned. Journalists are duty-bound to report on facts without fear. The freedom of the fourth estate is the basic tenet of any democratic society. Goswami’s attackers should be prosecuted as per the law and the authorities should ensure that the goons do not get away." said iTV Network founder Kartikeya Sharma.
