In a shocking incident, NDTV’s Deputy News Editor has insulted the martyrdom of 49 CRPF Jawans by glorifying the heinous act of the Pakistani based terrorist organisation Jaish-e-Muhammad. Nidhi had written on her Facebook handle “where a grisly 44 has been proven to be greater than the mythical 56” with a hashtag #HowstheJaish which she used to mock the viral slogan of URI film “How’s the Josh”.
When the entire nation was mourning, the Deputy News Editor of NDTV was celebrating the loss of Indian Jawans and was encouraging the Pakistani terrorists. Soon she was widely criticized and slammed as the screenshot of her facebook post became viral of social media.
When the anger against Nidhi Sethi and NDTV increased, the media house NDTV suspended Nidhi for 2 weeks and promised that the company’s Disciplinary Committee will take further action. NDTV’s statement said “NDTV strongly condemns what a Deputy News Editor of our website posted on her personal Facebook page about the tragic and dastardly Pulwama terror attack. She has been suspended for 2 weeks, effective immediately, while the company’s Disciplinary Committee weighs further action”.
But the Indians were not ready to accept the apology of NDTV as they said Nidhi Sethi is a mouth-piece of NDTV and she just expressed the channel’s view point. Not just NDTV journalist Nidhi Sethi, but several other traitors who live in India celebrated the martyrdom of Indian jawans by using the slogan #HowstheJaish.
A student from Aligarh Muslim University named Basim Hilal wrote on Twitter How’s the Jaish for which he was suspended from the university.
Nidhi Sethi was not the only journalist who celebrated the tragic incident. Several other mainstream journalists used this incident to target the central government instead of slamming Pakistan. While Indian Armed Force themselves said that they want revenge, journalist Rana Ayyub says revenge is not a solution.
Equally sickening today is the revenge talk on news channels. News anchors asking for khoon ka badla khoon se..
