It is clarified that Naavi.org has been providing its views on
various events of relevance to Cyber Laws and Cyber
crime events in good faith in pursuance of its
objective of contributing towards "Building a Responsible Cyber Society".
In this context, Naavi.org has been a journal working like an NGO. Naavi.org
should therefore be considered as both an NGO working for the welfare of
Netizens and also publication entitled to its privileges on freedom of
In the course of its reporting, Naavi.org has to discuss Cyber Crime incidents
that are reported from India and elsewhere. Readers will appreciate that while
reporting on a Cyber Crime, there will always be two sides to the incident. The
accused and the complainant obviously hold diametrically opposite views. Any
expression supporting one may therefore appear to be an expression
against the other.
In this process, Naavi.org does not have any intention to criticize any
person except to the extent of
pointing out what in our opinion would be omissions or mistakes. We trust that
the persons who may be referred in such a context will take it as a
constructive criticism from the independent observer and not construe it as a

In case some one feels hurt by some stray comments in the media they are
welcome to send their rejoinders and we shall be happy to publish the same.
We object the culture of "Harassment of journalists through legal
notices" followed by some and consider it unprofessional. It may be recalled that Naavi.org has advocated "Balancing
expression of views" even in serious issues such as those which arose in the
case of dalitstan.org. (Refer
React? An E-Governance Dilemma ). For much lesser issues such as an
report , the said
suggestion is more than a sufficient remedy. The rejoinder would eminently meet
Moreover, persons serving defamation notices on publications should remember
that the charge of defamation will stand only if the statement made by the
journal is not true besides being defamatory. Further, if the statement under
objection is on an action of the subject party and does not attack the person
per-se, no defamation is recognized. If the affected party knows that the
statement made is true or otherwise the defamation charge is untenable
and a notice of defamation is still issued, it can be termed as an attempt to
threaten and prevent a journalist from discharging his legitimate duties
and a cause of action may arise in reverse against the person serving the

Naavi as a Consultant
We take this opportunity to also assure the readers that even in cases where
Naavi has a consultancy relationship such as what he generally has with the Police,
the reporting of the said cases will not be affected by such relationship. So
far, Naavi has been refusing to support a party if it is felt
that the cause of the party is not justified. Naavi is not in the shoes
of a lawyer who accepts the case to defend a person even if he is believed to
be a criminal because he thinks it is his duty to protect those who seek
his help. Naavi as a consultant has the right to refuse a client if in his
judgment the person does not deserve his help because he is on the wrong side
of the law. Further, when Naavi gives a report either as an expert or a
consultant, he is not obliged to give a report in favour of the person
appointing him. It is another fact that any report given to a client which does
not support the client's views will get discarded by the client while any
report supporting the client's view gets used as a subsequent reference. Naavi
does not therefore control the fact that many of his reports which get
circulated are reports in which the opinion supports the party which has used
his consultancy services, be it the Police or a private party. Besides such
reports there will be many other reports disagreeing with the client's views
which get killed by the respective clients and don't see the light of the day.
If in the process of selection of the "Right Cause to Support", an element
of pre judgment is involved based on the material then available to Naavi, it
is considered unavoidable. If subsequently our judgment is proved wrong because
new facts come to light, we are ready to accept in all humility that an error
of judgment was made.
The above statements are made as a general expression of the policy guiding
this site and will apply to issues that has been discussed over the
past several years this site has been in existence in different forms and to be
discussed in future.
