Who is anti-national?The Hindu is one of the most respected newspapers in the world. Its editorial is the best in India. It has helped hundreds of thousands of youngsters to improve their English. It is always an "and'newspaper in most middle-class South Indian homes. It is now published even from Mumbai.
This means millions buy The Hindu and just cannot stay away from it at all. The Hindu is run by one of the most respected families of Tamil Nadu. Its Chief, Mr. N. Ram is a highly respected journalist and does have his own views on anything. Nothing that is far away from the truth is never ever published in The Hindu. In fact, even the police check with The Hindu reporters for accuracy!!
Be that as it may, Mr. N. Ram's efforts to piece together the deal relating to the purchase of Rafale jets has made the BJP see red. Mr. N. Ram has been branded "anti-national". Anyone who speaks against the ruling party is branded "anti-national". If someone speaks against demonetization, one Mr. H Raja, one of the most hated politicians in Tamil Nadu, jumps into the fray and the particular person is targetted.
Should we not stop this atrocious practice? Journalists have total freedom to document anything. The same BJP celebrated the Bofors expose years ago, by the same The Hindu.
Let us not be guided by stupidity.
