Video: Journalists heckled for being ‘Godi Media’, anti-Modi Twitter users rejoice, call it ‘krantikari’

previously, the crew of Republic TV was attacked in Aligarh Muslim University. Last year, some journalists were also attacked and heckled inside the Congress headquarters and were accused of being 'Modi Bhakts'.

A video was shared by a Twitter user yesterday showing an ABP journalist and Aaj Tak’s Anjana Om Kashyap being heckled by a crowd raising slogans against the media. In the video, which the user claimed was from Varanasi, voices of people shouting slogans of ‘Godi media Modi ka Dalal hai‘ can be heard in the background.

Surprisingly, instead of condemning the unruly behaviour of the people in the crowd, many Twitter users supported the behaviour of the crowd. Some even wished that this should have happened long ago.

One Twitter user went on to say that it would be more fun if the media persons were beaten up.

Others cheered too.

Some even declared the media as ‘bhakt‘.

This is not the first time that journalists have been targeted by a mob. In February 2019 a female journalist of Republic TV along with her crew was attacked by students in Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) and their camera and equipment were also broken. In another such incident, journalists were attacked and heckled inside Congress headquarters last year by Congress workers who had accused the journalist of being a ‘Modi-Bhakt’ and running pro-Modi news.
