    On Tuesday, a shocking news was reported from a Limbodara village near Gandhinagar where a 17 year old Dalit boy named Digant Maheria was allegedly stabbed by upper caste men for sporting a moustache.

    Later the report claimed that the boy was taken to the Gandhinagar civil hospital where several stitches were made on is back. The family members of the boy even claimed that he also been previously attacked but back then, they had refrained from lodging a case.

    Such an incident was one of the three which had been reported from the same village in quick succession and as a result had raised concerns about the possible caste clashes in the region.

    The police as a result lodged a complaint against the unknown assailants via various provisions like the prevention of atrocities against the SC, ST act. In the complaint, the boy claimed that at about 4:30 PM he was returning home from school after appearing at an exam, when two unknown assailants came up behind him on a bike. They threatened him and later attacked him with a knife.

    This resulted in outage on social media and also an attempted protest outside the state secretariat by Dalit leader Jignesh Mewani for demanding the resignation of the Gujarat Home Minister for reportedly having failed to protect the Dalits. A social media campaign involving putting one’s own pictures with mustache was launched too.

    Now 3 days after the incident, the Gujarat Police via its probe has concluded that the whole incident was fake and the boy had made up the allegations to generate publicity after being convinced to do so by an influential NGO.

    According to local news portal Desh Gujarat, the police probe revealed that:

    • There were no signs of blood in the location where the attack was supposed to have taken place
    • CCTV footage and clothes were checked and they did not support the version of events recounted by the boy
    • A paan shop owner near the given location too claimed that no such incident had occurred there
    • Even questioning and checks failed to corroborate the incident
    Later as stated in the Desh Gujarat report, while interrogation the boy broke down and confessed to setting up the whole incident. He confessed that he and his two friends brought a sharp shaving blade and he in-turn asked them to attack him with it.

    The two friends as well corroborated this version by stating that they caused the injury after being pressurised by the boy. The boy later also confessed that he escalated the issue by talking to the media persons for getting coverage. He claimed he was inspired to do so by some NGO people. According to him, he used to visit and speak with them which inspired him to carry out this stunt.

    Now such a revelation raises a couple of questions.

    One, what role did the NGO exactly play in motivating the boy. Did it have an ulterior motive of diving the society based on caste lines? Also what action would the police now take against both the boy and the NGO?

    Secondly, what is the reason that the state has suddenly seen a spurt of such atrocities, and whether there are other cases as well that could be fabricated. Also is there a deeper conspiracy behind this whole thing after especially considering the fact that state elections are just a few months away?

    "My mother, a Brahmin, married my father belonging to a Scheduled Caste in 1983 without any problem. But when I, carrying a Dalit identity in this patriarchal society, married a Hindu Nadar girl in 2008, there was no dearth for problems. I was abused, assaulted, kidnapped, tonsured and made to live every second under constant threat to life,” rues V. Mahesh, a 26-year-old marketing executive hailing from Putheri village near Vadaseri in Kanyakumari district.

    Smriti Irani, the union minister for Information & Broadcasting has decided that she will not treat ‘fake news’ by the mainstream media outlets casually. Within days of her assuming charge of the ministry, she had taken news agency PTI to task for spreading fake pictures of flooded Ahmedabad airport.

    PTI was taken to task again by the Press Information Bureau for spreading misleading information about compulsory Aadhar ID for obtaining death certificate, and they received flak from Ms. Irani yet again when they had tweeted an absurd photograph of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar.

    Now the minister and ministry are back in action, and this time it is due to the newspaper The Hindu, which recently drew a lot of flak on social media for claiming that a dying woman – a victim of stampede at Elphinstone railway station of Mumbai suburban rail network – was molested by a bystander. Later, it was found that the bystander was actually trying to help the dying woman, not molest her.

    The Hindu reporter had used just an 8-second video clip to make this sensational claim, whereas it was found that a longer 40 seconds video was available, which showed that the bystander was not trying to molest any stampede victim. In fact, he was a good samaritan trying to help the stampede victims.

    Whether the video was maliciously edited by the reporter, or the reporter fell for the edited video is not known, but The Hindu apologized and withdrew the story after massive outrage.

    But was a simple apology enough? That’s what most of the social media users asked, and it now appears that Smriti Irani too agrees with the common users. The Ministry of Information & Broadcasting is believed to have expressed their displeasure at the whole turn of events and conveyed the same to Press Council of India, which is a central statutory authority for preserving the freedom of the press and for maintaining and improving the standards of press in India.

    Earlier today, Press Council of India issued a ‘show cause notice’ to the editor of The Hindu and asked the newspaper to explain their position within 14 days in writing.

    In a separate press release, the council noted that the molestation story was “highly irresponsible” and subsequent action (withdrawal of the story and issuing of an apology) was not enough to mitigate the damage done.

    The show-cause notice by the council has been issued under Section 14 of the Press Council Act, 1978, which empowers the council to hold an inquiry if the council believes that the standards of journalistic ethics or public taste has been offended, or that an editor or working journalist has committed any professional misconduct.

    Although press council of India will decide on any action after The Hindu responds to the show-cause notice, OpIndia.com has learnt that the ministry believes that the newspaper should be penalized by stopping government ads for a period of two weeks as an exemplary action.

    More apt action would be if the paper was pulled off from market for two weeks. That shall be a punishment that would send the message properly.

    The Hindu is losing its journalistic sheen. Since the management changed and N Ram took over the management indirectly telling that they dont adhere to point of view. Still their Opeds and Editorials are top notch.
    However this action to catch a brownie points during a disaster is under the belt by The Hindu. My fav newspaper is going down the drain. Unfortunately.

    Another article with attacks on media freedom in west will come out... :hitwall:

    However its time to jail journos for false news. This should make them careful in posting news. And court should do it themselves. The press council consists of members from the Press itself and they dont pass judgements against one another. Infact they blocked a govt bill which would make them accountable by telling that they will make themselves accountable by having a organisation themselves. They did a drama judgement over a fake news and fine of 2000 was levied...........

    A few hours before yesterday’s much awaited GST Council press briefing, a news began circulating in media circles: That jewellers can now sell gold and other jewellery items worth more than Rs 50,000 without asking for PAN cards of buyers.

    Many media houses reported the news. Even business news channels tweeted the same from their social media handles. An illustrative screenshot is as below:

    [​IMG]

    Instinctively, this move felt wrong and against the overall principles of the Central Government. On the one hand, PM Modi has repeatedly stressed on strong measures to curb black-money and tax evasion. On the other hand, when such steps are taken, it defeats the purpose.

    Gold is long known to be an asset preferred by black money hoarders. Hence, the reactions on social media, based on such reports were understandably expressing anger:

    What most people did not realise that, some in the media had reported only half the facts in this case. In fact, a few media houses like ABP news, did report the entire news, in full context:

    [​IMG]

    The full background of the story goes like this: From December 2015 onwards, jewellers had to obtain PAN cards for selling jewellery above Rs 2 lacs. Towards the end of August, jewellers having turnover of Rs 2 crores or more, were brought under the PMLA Act as “reporting entities”, on par with other institutions such as banks. The limit for reporting transactions under PMLA was Rs 50,000 and this was by default applied to the jewellers as well. Thus, the limit of Rs 2 lacs had now become Rs 50,000.

    This had caused resentment among the jewellers community. The threshold of Rs 50000 was found to be too low since ordinary gold ornaments would easily cross the threshold. After the GST Council press meet, Revenue Secretary Hasmukh Adhia explained that the PMLA notification was withdrawn since they need to reconsider the threshold limit. Thus, the Rs 50000 limit was no longer in force.

    Most media reports mentioned this removal of Rs 50000 threshold. But they failed to mention that although this threshold was removed, the erstwhile threshold of Rs 2 lacs still continued. This half-reporting created an impression that any sale of jeweller above Rs 50000 had been taken out of the net of PAN reporting.
