उपनिषद का ऋषि कहता है प्रश्न करो लेकिन रवीश बनकर नहीं

News Feed

I am deliberately juxtaposing the comment below, posted by my learned friend Dhiranjan Malvey, with the hauntingly prophetic lines from Dr Rahat Indauri. Because I'd instinctively love to side with NDTV against the government but for the glaringly irresponsible and unprofessional behaviour of the popular media which refuses to regulate itself. Malvey ji makes a powerful argument which must be taken into account even if we decide to stand by NDTV, be it reluctantly...
"I beg to differ. Just because NDTV is a TV channel, just because it has a political clout, just because it can create stir among the media fraternity, it does not mean that it is above the law of the land. If an ordinary nameless and faceless cotizen is bound by the law of the land, so are the media persons. They do not have a right to claim any special privilege just because they have a voice or they begin to feel special due the nature of their job.
There is nothing irregular or illegal or dictatorial about banning NDTV for a day. Right to freedom of speech as enshrined in the Article 19(1)(a) of the the constitution is not absolute but subject to certain reasonable restrictions as enshrined in the Article 19(2). Security of the state is one of them.
In the instant case, NDTV has been found guilty of compromising the security of the state by covering the Pathankot happenings in an irresponsible manner. The liability of the channel was established after following the due process of law and natural justice after giving NDTV due opportunity to defend itself.
If NDTV is feeling aggrieved, then it can always approach High Court under article 226 or Supreme Court under article 32 instead of indulging in theatrics and mobilising support among politicians and media persons.
Just because one does not like the face of Modi or hates BJP, it would be grossly unfair to smell something foul behind every move of the government. Governments can not function like that. In fact, channels were blacked out during the regime of UPA government as well but then no body made any hue and cry. Does it not show double standards?"
--Dr Dhiranjan Malvey
Shiv Kant "If the court is to be brought in the picture then the offence will fall within the ambit and scope of section 3 of the Official Secrets Act, 1923. As the matter related to a defence establishment, it will attract punishment for up to 14 years. The offence is obviously non-bailable. In fact good senses have prevailed and the government has been circumspect and mature enough not to even mention this draconian provision so far.

There should have been a regulatory body like Offcom of UK or FCC of USA . There was a move for the same also. But the channels made so much hue and cry that the idea was quietly put on the back burner. I happened to be in one such meeting between channel managers and the I&B Minister (Dasmunshi) in 2007.'

Virendra Sharma भारत ऋषि ऋषिकाओं का देश रहा है यहां सारा ज्ञान प्रश्न और प्रश्न की गुणवत्ता से मथने के बाद ही प्रसूत हुआ है ,प्रश्न का स्तर जितना ऊंचा रहा है ,प्रश्न की मथानी से मथकर उतना ही श्रेष्ठ ज्ञान निकला है। उपनिषद का ऋषि कहता है प्रश्न करो लेकिन रवीश बनकर नहीं।

रवीश और भारत विरोधी टीवी जिसे दुर्भाग्य से NDTV कहा जाता है इतना ज़रूर समझ ले। शिष्य समिधा लेकर गुरु के पास उसके आश्रम में जाता था ऋषि उसकी परिक्षा लेता था उसे आश्रम में ही साल दो साल रखा जाता था सेवा ली जाती थी जब भरोसा हो जाता था तभी ऋषि उसे ज्ञान कराता था ब्रह्म का। पत्रकारिता का भी कुछ तो धर्म ज़रूर होता होगा भले ये गणेश शंकर विद्यार्थी का दौर नहीं है फिर भी रवीश जैसे लोगों को जो स्वयं घोषित बुद्धिजीवी बन बैठे हैं कौन समझाए उनका व्यवहार बुद्धू जीवी जैसा है। भोग यौनि में जी रहे हैं ये लोग पत्रकारिता कर्म यौनि है।

निश्चित तौर पर सबको साथ लेकर चलने वाली सरकार ने एनडीटीवी पर सिर्फ एक दिनी प्रतीकात्मक प्रतिबन्ध लगाया है। यह सीधे सीधे देश द्रोह का मामला बनता है संविधान की उक्त धारा के अनुसार जिसका मान्यवर शिवकान्त जी ने उल्लेख किया है। बड़े लोग बड़े होते हैं वह रवीश जैसे छीटे स्तर के लोगों के हाथ में हेंडिल नहीं देना चाहते। ये शख्श अपना भी नुक्सान कर सकता है। रवीश जैसे छोटे स्तर के लोगों की समझ  में ये बात काश आ जाए तो पत्रकारिता का शायद  मतलब भी समझ में आ जाए।
