While covering the Ayodhya dispute case, Aaj Tak resorted to certain practices which were violative of the guidelines issued by the News Broadcasting Standards Authority (NBSA). The channel not only aired a debate where participants were allowed to make hateful statements against the minority community, it also made a post on twitter about another show with a communally sensitive and hate inducing title. The content is still on the internet, prompting CJP to submit a written complain to Aaj Tak about the same.
In our complaint letter to Aaj Tak, we have requested them to take down the offensive content. We have also informed them that should they fail to take necessary action, we will be compelled to file a complaint with the NBSA for necessary punitive action.
CJP is dedicated to finding and bringing to light instances of Hate Speech, so that the bigots propagating these venomous ideas can be unmasked and brought to justice. To learn more about our campaign again hate speech, please become a member. To support our initiatives, please donate now!
