NDTV, CNN-IBN under fire

The screening of the recent mob violence by two satellite TV channels run in to a hail of protest from many quarters in Assam although these channels have yet to react.

Minister for health an family welfare Dr Himanta Biswa Sarma said a section of media is trying to distort the image of Assam by repeatedly spreading misinformation to the people.

“These section of media people have shown stripping a girl protestors in the broadday light but failed to show how an youth threw his shirt at the girl in distress. It justifys the Assamese as a nation have not gone to he hell as has been projected by a section of media.” he said.

Meanwhile, the state cable operators are announcing a 24 hour black of NDTV and CNN-IBn news channels for repeatedly beaming of the picture containing the stripping the girl on the streets.

On the other hand, the Assam Government has announced a Rs 1,00,000 compensation and a government job for the girl whose modesty has been outraged at the height of violence.

Our youths need to restrain themselves. Whatever the provocation, that stripping was unwarranted and look that single incident has let our homeland in a mess.
