    Media coverage of the protests against a controversial citizenship law in India has ranged from being neutral to avowedly pro-government, say press freedom advocates.

    The law puts citizens from three neighbouring countries on a fast-track to obtaining citizenship, but discriminates against Muslims.

    And that has done a disservice to India's viewers.

    Al Jazeera's Anchal Vohra reports from New Delhi.
