DUJ SEMINAR ON ‘DEMOCRACY IN DANGER : UNETHICAL REPORTING / ATTACKS ON INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM AND JOURNALISTS’
In a sharp counter to the BJP Sangh Parivar’s campaign, Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan said the state has been targeted as it champions the values of secularism, socialism and democracy. He was speaking at a function organized by the Delhi Union of Journalists in the national capital on ‘Democracy in Danger : Unethical Reporting/ Attacks on Independent Journalism and Journalists’ on 15 October at Kerala House. The Chief Minister said slogans like ‘Love Jehad’ have been used to disrupt the state’s centuries old communal harmony but the RSS will not succeed in its game plan. He slammed several media houses for ferociously targeting Kerala and congratulated those journalists who are standing up for the truth despite pressure from employers.
