Anand Ranganathan, who was bullied by journalists, hits out on them for ‘vile slander and propaganda’

Following the assassination of journalist Shujaat Bukhari, the so-called journalists took it upon themselves to shift the blame from terrorists to those who raise their voices against terrorism. Scientist and columnist Anand Ranganathan, who had recently spoken against the role of media, the fourth estate, on reporting on terrorism, in the valley as well as elsewhere, was single out and bullied for telling people like Bukhari to be little mindful of how reportage is taking place in media. However, the otherwise cool and composed Ranganathan lost his cool and hit out on the journalists for their ‘vile slander and propaganda’.

Referring to these so-called journalists as ‘third-raters and psychopaths’, Ranganathan expressed shock that they would use the death of someone, their fellow journalist, for ‘sick and demented childish game’.

He said that their slander does not bother him, but what saddens him is that they are considered opinion-makers, despite their ‘mediocrity and psychopathy’. He shared screenshots of Bukhari for which he had called him out on a stage earlier this week, where Bukhari seemed to be speaking on the lines of terror sympathisers.

Shujaat Bukhari’s tweets

Stating that he does not believe in criminal defamation so he will not be taking legal action against those who insinuated that he is responsible for Bukhari’s assassination, he asked the ‘journalists’ to take their childish games elsewhere.

He reminded these journalists on how to be a decent human being at a time when one of their own is assassinated.
