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.
