Exercise White Wash -hang the humanity
Apropos of Arundhati Roy's article who needs Reality TV?.Hindustan times(Dec 23)
Such a biased coverage of the issue has certainly played a very major role in jeopardiging the fair trial which is evident from This very famous statement "The incident, which resulted in heavy casualities,has shaken the entire nation,and the collective conscience of the society will only be satisfied if capital punishment is awarded to the offender" and substantiates the very successful failure of only one agency and that is Police.
Neither this strong Nation of Gandhi nor its courts were probably shaken by the casualities of 1984 or the Gujarat Carnage.The brutal killings of 18 BSF soldiers and their dead bodies hung like animal carcasses while being brought to India could not jolt the conscience of this brave nation,Yes ! those killed were lesser humans.
This selective screening of the recordings by the media only furthers the objective and ethos of cookedup results by police to become more improfessional and promote the corruption and brutality in the police organization that hardly inspires confidence of the common man.It seems that the rat race of commercialisation(TRP RATINGS) has taken its toll on the very responsible TV Channels,the principles of freedom of speech doesn't entitle you to subvert the innocent minds of the public and spread venom.
