Angry Nepalese trend #GoHomeIndianMedia to protest against insensitive coverage of earthquake

Indian mainstream media, especially TV news channels, is hardly known for nuances, and they appear to miss it even during tragedies. Media coverage of 2008 Mumbai Terror Attacks is the biggest example of their insensitive, irresponsible, and sensationalist reporting, which made a lot of people take to social media to register their protest.

And it seems, Indian media has not learnt its lessons ever since. Now they have been able to irritate and anger even non-Indians.

On Sunday, many Twitter users living in Nepal started hashtag #GoHomeIndianMedia to protest against such brand of reporting. Not only in Nepal, but this hashtag trended even in India.

From their tweets, it was obvious that the anger was against the sensationalist approach by media, and not against India:

Apart from insensitive (like asking injured persons ‘aapko kaisa lag raha hai’ type of questions) and sensationalist reporting, some users claimed that Indian media even ended up blocking relief operations and rescue work:

However, among the “doyens” of Indian media, the hashtag was met either with denial or with cheap potshots at each other:

While the celeb journalists might differ with each other, Indians joined Nepalese citizens in bashing the Indian media for their attitude:

and such support from the Indian tweeters brought some smile to Nepalese citizens:

Hope Indian media uses this opportunity to introspect and listen to the common man’s voices instead of deflecting responsibility or choosing to live in denial.
