Indian media new target for Radio PakistanFebruary 4th, 2009 - 3:04 pm ICT by ANI
Abohar, Feb.4 (ANI): While Indian television channels are protesting against the proposed restrictions that the Government of India intends to impose on them following the live coverage of the Mumbai terror attacks on Taj, Oberoi and the Narriman house last November, the Punjabi Durbar programme of Pakistan radio still finds the Indian channels puppets of the Government.
The fact is that the Indian channels have been telecasting the truth and this has hurt the Pakistan establishment. People in Pakistan were able to view the coverage by Indian channels, which exposed the role played by persons based in Pakistan in the terror attacks.
Radio Pakistan has been trying to hurt the credibility of Indian television channels. But journalists in Punjab are not impressed.
Kanti Bhardwaj, a senior journalist in Abohar, says: Electronic and print media of India don”t show or publish false news but the Pakistan authority hides the activities that are being carried out by the terrorists based in their own country,”
“Pakistani media works under pressure of Pakistan’’s government. They only publish news given by the government ; any other news item is not published there. Indian media is the fourth pillar of India. People believe on it. India’’s media is appreciated all across the world” , Kanti Bhardwaj added.
Pakistan Radio should remember that the Indian print media organizations are about 150 years old. Today, many of the media organizations of the country have associations with international media groups.
News coverages by Indian media organizations have found acceptance across the world because of its unbiased, responsible and measured news coverage.
There have been several instances where news items mentioned in newspapers or television have been quoted in the Parliament of India.
It is rather Pakistani media, which is found struggling to establish its fairness in the world. (ANI)
