Why had Englishmen demanded a clampdown on the 'Vernacular Press' in the 19th century?
Enraged Englishman demanded a clampdown on the 'native' press because they did not want another revolt to occur like the revolt of 1857. The vernacular press became assertively nationalist and circulated anti-colonial views among the common masses. Hence restrictions were imposed on the vernacular press so that it cannot produce editorials or articles that go against the British.
