Here are 10 incidents in last three months when journalists were attacked at ‘tolerant and secular’ gatherings

Here is a list of attacks on journalists by 'secular-liberal' opposition voices of the country

Left-wing cadres and Muslim mobs have attacked journalists several times, especially the ground reporters ever since the sinister propaganda of these so-called ‘liberal-secular’ brigade was exposed by these scribes.

Aided and inspired by few ‘journalists’ close to the Congress ecosystem, who often term the media in the country, that does not agree with them, as ‘Godi media’ in a reference to attack them by falsely insinuating that they are close to the Modi government, the left-wing cadres have joined hands with Muslim mobs to unleash violence in the name of fighting the ‘biased-media’.

There have been several cases of mobs especially controlled by either left-wing forces or the opposition parties targetting media professionals to silence them from exposing sinister agenda peddled by the left-wing forces and opposition parties.

Here is a list of attacks on journalists by ‘secular-liberal’ opposition voices of the country:

Deepak Chaurasia attacked by a mob at Shaheen Bagh

When the reporter questions one the students, he says that if she stays, then “hum baitha ke mazaa lenge”. Then, amidst chants of “Zee News murdabad” and “Hindi media murdabad”, rather middle-aged students can be seen manhandling the reporter.

Then one can see students demanding that the cameras be shut off. The ‘students’ told the reporter to get out. After that, ‘students’, even joined by women, started chanting ‘bhaag Zee News bhaag’.

Republic TV reporter attacked by JNU left-wing mobs, colluded by India Today scribe

On November 19t 2019, Republic TV journalist was heckled by left-wing students inside the JNU campus led by JNUSU president Aishe Ghosh.

According to the Republic TV journalists’ own account, as was telecast on Republic TV, the question that they had asked JNUSU was whether blocking an Ambulance is the right form of protest. To this, the answer was mindless hackling and abuse.

Shockingly, Along with JNUSU president Aishe Ghosh and other JNUSU students, India Today journalist – Tanushree Pandey was also seen heckling the Republic TV reporters for asking pointed questions to the students during a press conference.

Republic TV reporter and cameraman heckled by Congress workers at Anti-CAA protests

The crew’s cameraman was also pushed away from the area by the same supporters.

Republic TV, India Today journalists attacked by TMC workers in West Bengal

In the run-up to 2019 Lok Sabha elections, Republic TV journalist Shantashree, who was reporting from Asansol along with their video journalist was attacked by the TMC goons with lathis and broke the window of car they were travelling.

India Today’s crew was also allegedly attacked by TMC goons and their journalist Manogya Loiwal manhandled.

Despite countless times when journalists were attacked across the country during the violence unleashed by the left-wing forces and Islamic mobs, neither senior ‘journalists’ who often have a viewpoint on every single issue nor the Editors’ Guild of India has stood in the support of their fellow colleagues.

It is rather unsurprising to see the “secular-liberal” media not standing up for their colleagues despite suffering severe attacks as the latter have exposed their sinister propaganda sponsored by the opposition parties and certain anti-government forces outside the country.
