  8. India is ranked 136 in the World Press Freedom Index,three points down from last year. Norway is at the apex and North Korea at the bottom of the 180-strong list of nations. Released annually by Reporters Without Borders,the Index ranks 180 countries according to the level of freedom available to journalists. .On the whole, the world has become a darker space for journalists, going by the Index map. "A total of 21 countries are now colored black on the press freedom map because the situation there is classified as "very bad," and 51 [two more than last year] are colored red, meaning that the situation in these countries is classified as "bad" In all, the situation has worsened in nearly two thirds [62.2%) of the l 80 countries in the Index," says the report. India has gone down from last year's l 33 rank The report blames the rise of Hindu nationalism for the drop in ranking."With Hindu nationalists trying to purge all manifestations of"anti-national" thought from the national debate,self-censorship is growing in the mainstream media," says the report. "Journalists are increasingly the targets of online smear campaigns by the most radical nationalists, who vilify them and even threaten physical reprisals," the report goes on to say, and not to mention the sedition charges pressed on journalists.

Graft allegations surrounding Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak has also been cited as an instance of why that country scored poorly at 50 over its last year's score of 52.
