From Real Media to Reel Media…
Every one in India is writing about how India strikes and takes the revenge from our allied neighbour Pakistan and yes, it is proud moment no doubt. But in this entire scenario I was very much stick to the media of both the nations and more to our India media. I was fallowing each and every news channel.
Today I am writing this blog as I feel this is the time where it is very important discuss on something on which no body is focused that is role of our media in all this. We all know that press is the fourth and the most important pillar of the nation. But in the recent time I have seen that they are not focused upon the real news rather they creates rhetoric’s of every minute thing and presenting in a filmy way to us. From media trial to creating and presenting every thing in reel form is very common and becoming dangerous to the nation.
I want to quote few incidents in recent time that has really worried me regarding the role of media in India. For example:
Trial of kanaya kumar in JNU case, Every hearing of Ayodhya case being represented as a national emergency in the nation when the matter is still subjudice ,Hadaya case deciding thing before the Supreme court, and now when Indian Air force strike at the JEM training centre which is the proud act for every Indian. But media perse declare that 300 terrorist were killed in the mission. But from where they got authentic information is not being revealed. Similarly when Our pilot Mr.Abhinanand got caught in Pakistan , which was really a matter of concerned and when I saw video of Mr. Anbhianandan talking to Pakistan army personal and telling them I cannot reveal my details to u all. I feel so proud on him and I salute his spirit, but what our media did they thereby within half an hour start running the news about full details of this man . without giving second thought to national security and our pilot security. Shocking how they are behaving they are not concerned with anything except TRP.
Above are just few examples that strike in my mind as now. Important is not the examples important is how our media is behaving. Where it is taking us, there duty is reveal truth. Make us aware about the realities and always try to create peace and harmony in the society as they are the most important and effective medium which affects the entire nation.
It is really a matter of concerned now. Time has come to make the them realise that there right to freedom of press enshrined in article 19 is subject to so many restriction and sovereignty and integrity of the nation is one of them. And there so much irresponsible behaviour is really a matter of concern.
I will be writing in details in constitutional perspective on this topic. But we really need to see this prospective.
