Narendra Modi’s no to Muslims – Dal Khalsa accuses Indian media of bias against minorities

December 3, 2012 | By

Amritsar, Punjab (December 03, 2012): Dal Khalsa has expressed its displeasure as to why Indian media has not taken Gujarat CM Narendra Modi to task for his refusal to allot tickets to Muslims.

‘Modi’s big No to Muslims have gone unattended and unnoticed’, said party’s political secretary Kanwar Pal Singh in a statement. “There has been no strong reaction (barring few reports) from the media houses. Why there has been no editorial, articles and analysis on OPED pages by this time, he asked and added that “this is because media is biased towards the minorities”, alleges Kanwar Pal Singh.

To drive his point home, he said there was consistent and sharp campaign in selective media during the run-up to the Punjab assembly elections in Feb to ensure that Badals do “allot tickets” to non-Sikhs. And once it was done and the SAD chooses ten non-Sikh candidates to contest elections from its platform, the media eulogized Badal for being “secular”, said he.

It’s ironic that the Punjab has been the only state where media dictates terms to SAD especially the Badals forcing them to “follow the specific agenda”. However, he accepted that Badals lack acumen and they do get carried away by media hype.

He wondered why this time media has not yet described Modi as “threat to secularism’. He urged the chairman of the Press council Justice Katuja to take note of this bias of the Indian media.
