Forcing webmasters to sell websites

One of the most foolish mistakes made by the powerful men in the Indian internet industry is how much time and effort they waste in trying to force a webmaster sell his or her websites to them. Many of these websites make very little money, sometimes not even enough to cover the webhosting and domain registration expenses, yet these powerful people shamelessly try to force the webmaster to sell their website to them.

For this, these powerful people will waste huge amounts of tax payer money to put the webmaster under surveillance to harass her. For many, the websites are a hobby, and do not generate much revenue. In fact, writing on Teckler is far more lucrative, compared to developing content for their own websites, because of lack of traffic. Yet why is there so much pressure to force them to sell the websites?
