Zee News issues defamation notice of Rs 1000 crore to Congress leader Navjot Singh Singh

We at OpIndia had done a fact-check on the issue and had found that someone indeed had shouted ‘Pakistan Zindabad’ during the Sidhu’s speech at an election rally in Khairthal, Alwar in Rajasthan on December 1.

Zee Media Corporation Limited (ZMCL) has decided to issue a Rs 1000 crore defamation notice to controversial Congress leader and Punjab Minister Navjot Singh Sidhu for his defamatory and false allegations against the media organisation said Zee News.

According to the reports, Zee News has sent a notice to Sidhu days after he had threatened and accused the media of telecasting a fake video of his speech, where pro-Pakistan slogans were allegedly raised during the rally. In its Rs 1000 crore defamation notice, the media has asked Sidhu to apologise within 24 hours of receiving it.

Zee News editor-in-chief Sudhir Chaudhary in a Twitter post said, “@ZeeNews issues ₹1000 crore defamation notice to Navjot Sidhu for his defamatory and false allegations against Zee Media. If he doesn’t apologise, we shall use all legal recourses to take this case to its logical conclusion.”

The notice has asked Sidhu to tender an unconditional public apology and not to repeat such defamatory statements against the Zee News. The notice has also asked Sidhu to refrain from issuing further threats or hatred against the media organisation. Sidhu had allegedly threatened the Zee News when he had said “nani yaad dila denge” after Zee News had shown a video ‘Pakistan Zindabad’ slogans were raised at an election rally addressed by senior party leader Navjot Singh Sidhu.

However, party leaders remained defiant and instead accused Zee News of playing a ‘fake video’. Congress leader Randeep Singh Surjewala as a proof of their claim had posted a 45-second clip of the video to falsely accuse Zee News of posting fake news.

Sudhir Chaudhary had outrightly denied the allegation of the video is fake and said they can present at least seven feeds to prove that pro-Pakistan slogans were indeed raised during the election rally. Sudhir Chaudhary had accused the Congress party of attempting to muzzle the voice of the media in the country for not toeing the line of the party.

We at OpIndia had done a fact-check on the issue and had found that someone indeed had shouted ‘Pakistan Zindabad’ during the Sidhu’s speech at an election rally in Khairthal, Alwar in Rajasthan on December 1. The Congress leaders had edited out this part while posting a video proof that no such slogans were raised.

Recently, Navjot Singh Sidhu had been put into a tough spot by his own party members after Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh had also revealed that Pakistan Army General Qamar Javed Bajwa had revealed the Kartarpur corridor news to Punjab Cabinet Minister Navjot Singh Sidhu even before Imran Khan was sworn in as their Prime Minister, indicating a bigger conspiracy hatched by the Pakistan Army.

Navjot Singh Sidhu had caused a severe controversy after he posed with dreaded Khalistani terrorist Gopal Singh Chawla during his controversial visit to Pakistan to inaugurate the Kartarpur corridor.
