SrinagarStrongly denouncing Indian electronic media for what he described as 'biased reporting, negative campaign and malicious & misleading propaganda' against Kashmiri people, Syed Ali Geelani Friday said that these 'sleuths of stale ideology with fascist mindset are representing fanatical forces, thus creating a state of intolerance'.
Geelani named media channels Republic TV, Times Now, The News, AJ Tak, India Today and India TV and claimed that these channels look like 'fish markets'.
"Polite & sensible people consider their telecast and lineups as agonizing and annoying and never like to watch these channels for their insane reporting", Geelani said in a statement.
Geelani said, "We dont have any hostility with Indian people or any animosity with their faith, however we expect that on humanitarian grounds people in India to support our cause and right to self-determination.
They are not following any ethics, said Geelani while referring to Indian media and added that they have crossed all limits.
Referring to false propaganda televised on these channels, Geelani said that they are following the Goebles doctrine and added that to defame and disgrace freedom movement, these media centers are telecasting concocted and fake stories.
Anchors affiliated with these channels are slur for media fraternity, said Geelani and added that these anchors are not professionals instead are working as mouth pieces for Home Ministry.
Terming it media terror, Geelani said and added that these anchors are not doing any justice with their profession.
India is emerging as a fascist country, said Geelani and its biased media is playing a main role for promoting this.
Geelani alleged that these channels are running comedy shows instead of providing any space for polite discussions
