Bhopal encounter seems to be yet another tragedy to push on the alarm for emergency and thus,emergency injected to kill the freedom of expression. NDTV goes off air just because it exposed the truth of the fake encounter now trended to finish off the minorities who remain stranded in India as the largest Muslim Population as Two Hundred million Hindus also coincidentally remain stranded in Bangladesh after partition of India and then,liberation of Bangladesh.It is similar case of minority execution across the border.

Bangladesh media is free to publish the news of minority persecution and we may share every report day to day. Bangaldesh already overlapped India in wellness index and gender gap index,let there be a freedom of expression index,I am afraid ,we have to lag far behind.

I had been associated with Indian Express group of newspapers for twenty five years and I know how the group means for Goenka Award.The award was rejected by a Times of India journalist as it had to be handed over by Prime Minister.I understand the implications!

The journalist had no objection to get the award but he objected against the Prime Minister who  spoke, NOT to forget Emergency!

He meant it and it is an emergency all the way as the nation is reduced to the Gas Chamber and concentration camp of some Hitler invoked as Kalki Maharaj Manu Maharaj!

Hillary or Trump,whoever is going to be the President of America,the demise of America is just a matter of time as both destroy the American Democracy.In such global situation while India has to play a greater role,we have a leadership which invokes emergency.

We already have the experience of emergency and this prime minister representing the institutionalized fascism is nothing in comparison the Mrs Indira Gandhi.What emergency did to Mrs Gandhi,it is already become the history. RSS which opposed emergency,now seems to be instrumental to revoke emergency yet again to accomplish the declared agenda to make in Hindu India within 2020 and Hindu world within 2030.

The nation has already witnessed different type of Mahabharat Mushal Parv Tamaha played in Safai Dynasty which ended in an alliance of CM Akhilesh Yadav and RSS regime as the ideologically claimed to be socialist power brokers should sustain the CM office. as well as dynasty rule.

Human right activists have been thrashed in Lucknow to win the RSS backing in UP elections and it is becoming a self destructive trend as all political parties use Hindutva or Muslim Card to destroy democracy.

It is emergency as media reports!

An Inter-ministerial committee of the Information and Broadcasting (I&B) Ministry has recommended that a Hindi news channel be taken off air for a day after it concluded that the broadcaster had revealed "strategically-sensitive" details while covering the Pathankot terrorist attack.

The ministry may now ask the channel NDTV India to be taken off air for a day on November 9, according to sources, in what would be the first order against a broadcaster over its coverage of terrorist attacks.

Efforts to reach the channel for its comments could not materialise.

The matter pertains to the coverage of the Pathankot terror attack by the channel where the committee felt that "such crucial information" could have been readily picked by terrorist handlers and had the potential to "cause massive harm not only to the national security, but also to lives of civilians and defence personnel."

When the operation was on in January this year, it allegedly revealed information on the ammunition stockpiled in the airbase, MIGs, fighter-planes, rocket-launchers, mortars, helicopters, fuel-tanks, etc, "which was likely to be used by the terrorists or their handlers to cause massive harm, the sources said.

Official sources said that as the content appeared to be violative of the programming norms, a show cause notice was issued to the channel.

In its reply, the channel replied that it was a case of "subjective interpretation" and the most of the information they had put out was already in public domain in print, electronic and social media.

The committee, in its order, however observed that the channel "appeared to give out the exact location of the remaining terrorists with regard to the sensitive assets in their vicinity" when they telecast in real time.

The panel expressed "grave concern" that this was a matter of national security and that the channel had revealed sensitive details like location of ammunition depot vis-a-vis the space where the terrorists were holed up, location of school and residential areas.

"Such crucial information could have been readily picked by their handlers, which had the potential to cause massive harm not only to the national security, but also to lives of civilians and defence personnel," the committee said, disagreeing with the channel's contention that similar content was carried by newspapers.
