Indian TV news editor involved in provocative coverage against Muslims

In India’s yet another attempt to stab the Muslims in their back, Indian government sponsored Sun TV resorted to provocative coverage against the Muslims.

Police summoned Raja, the News Editor of Sun TV which is part of the Sun Network, owned by Kalanidhi and Dayanidhi Maran, the grandnephews of Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M Karunanidhi for an enquiry in connection with a complaint filed by a leader Tamil daily Dinamalar, accusing the channel of resorting to provocative coverage.

A senior Police official told that Raja was summoned for an enquiry in connection with complaint filed with the state government, alleging that sketches of the Holy Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) carried out by the paper’s Vellore edition recently was misrepresented by the TV channel.

Meanwhile, a number of Muslims  staged demonstrations in front of the newspaper’s Vellore office. Some protest demonstrations were also held near the newspaper’s office in Chennai.

The daily subsequently issued an apology for publishing the sketches.  The daily’s complaint has been referred to the Central Crime Branch (CCB) of the city police which registered a case under Sections 153 (provocation with an intent to cause riots) and 503 (criminal intimidation).

It is important to mention here that Sun TV is part of the Sun Network, owned by Kalanidhi and Dayanidhi Maran, the estranged grandnephews of Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M Karunanidhi.
