Suhel Seth calls out Ravish Kumar’s bluff

Commentator Suhel Seth, recently took umbrage to a remark by Ravish Kumar at a debate, and took to twitter to clarify his position. Ironically, it all started at an “awards” show for journalism, which supposedly honours excellence in journalism. Last year, Sreenivasan Jain was an awardee, in the same year when he maliciously and deliberately cut and spliced Baba Ramdev’s interview and twisted the entire conversation. And this year, Ravish Kumar himself won the “journalist of the year” award

In the event, in a panel discussion, Ravish Kumar said that even Suhel Seth abuses on social media. He said that when Suhel Seth meets him, their exchange is cordial, and when you go online, you see Seth abusing him. He did not cite any specific example, but one guesses when the “journalist of the year” says something, one must believe it.

But Suhel Seth was not one to take things quietly. He took to twitter to call out Ravish Kumar’s claims:

Of course Ravish Kumar is no longer active on Twitter so he hasn’t responded, but prima facie, Suhel Seth seems to be on the right here. We couldn’t find any abusive tweets from Suhel Seth referring Ravish Kumar. In fact, besides the above tweet, Suhel Seth had addressed only 1 tweet to Ravish Kumar, and that was a tweet applauding his work!

This is completely against what Ravish Kumar claimed at the awards show. And the date of the tweet also shows this complement was well into “Acche Din”, the time when Suhel Seth is said to have turned a new leaf.

So what was Ravish Kumar talking about? Is this the what one expects from the “journalist of the year”? Will we have another black-screen episode for this? Ravish Kumar must clarify and point to the abusive tweets of Suhel Seth to clear his name here.
