Reuters India: Really Unbiased ?
As a media person, I just cannot ignore the role of foreign news
agencies. However, I hate them for the fact that though they
claim to be the worshiper of unbiased reporting, they come to
fabricate the truth. I need to tell these news agencies that if
they are that much passionate in dishing out hate India stories
and if they just cannot see India in better light then it's
better if they stop acting as representatives of
At least, I would appreciate them, if not others, for their
confession that they are no different than others in concoction
of facts; of mixing truth with falsehood. Please Reuters India
stop talking about unbiased reporting!! You are supremely biased
when you report about sensitive issues.
Have a taste of this so-called unbiased reporting on the part of
it talked about cancellationof video-link
speech by Salman Rushdie in Jaipur. Look at the last paragraph of
this news item wherein its stated:
2,500 people, mostly Muslims, were killed in the neighbouring
state of Gujarat in 2002 after a suspected Muslim mob burnt alive
59 Hindu activists and pilgrims inside a
Now will anyone tell me what is the report trying to suggest by
emphasizing "mostly Muslims" as it reports about the killings?
Isn'tthere a shrewd deliberation involved? It's the same same
shrewdness that prevailed in times of Britishers!! The policy of
divide and rule is still very much in use by external agencies.
That's the intention inherent when the reporter, or whoever
prepared the report, never failed to miss " mostly Muslims"
Secondly, look at the use of phrase when it talks about people
responsible for Godhra carnage " a suspected Muslim mob".
Isn'tthis prestigious news agency aware of the fact
Godhra had been delivered, wherein Bilal Ismail Abdul Majid

report/treat convicts as "suspects"?
Now should I use the same style of reporting with unwanted
emphasis -one used by the Reuters India- and say that convicts
who were " all Muslims" were awarded death punishment in Godhra
