cHindu plans to publish Great Soul

The proposed ban on the sensational biography on MK Gandhi was met with violent opposition by the journalists at cHindu who have called for an end to such ridiculous censorship.
Union Law Minister Veerappa Moily's announcement that the central government would ban the book Great Soul: Mahatma Gandhi and his Struggle with India had no justification in fact, law, or common sense. The threatened ban on the book — the contents of which Mr. Moily dramatically described as “heresy” — was based, at best, on a total misreading of it and, at worst, on no-reading but relying on grossly misleading reviews in a section of the western media.

A key editor in cHindu said:
Mark this day, we will henceforth publish a print version of such banned books for free as well as provide an online version for people to read via their laptops, Kindles, iPads, Gol Gappas, Masala Dosais and other devices.
