Govt expressed strong objection to Ukraine war and TV coverage of Jahangirpuri, issued advisory

Taking strong objection to the coverage of Ukraine-Russia war and Jahangirpuri violence , the central government has issued advisory to private TV news channels.

Taking strong objection to the coverage of Ukraine-Russia war and Jahangirpuri violence , the central government has issued advisory to private TV news channels. In this, the channels have been asked to comply with the Cable Television Networks (Regulation) Act, 1995.

The government has said in its advisory that during the coverage of both these issues, the channels used provocative and anti-social language and were given reprehensible headlines. The government has also accused the government of making false claims.

Unauthenticated, misleading and sensationalized coverage has been done – Advisory

In this advisory issued by the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting , it has been said that in recent times, TV channels have used unverified, misleading, sensational and socially unacceptable language to cover the incidents and it has also been given a communal colour.

The advisory made special mention of government action following the Ukraine-Russia war and violence in north-west Delhi’s Jahangirpuri, which violated norms in related programmes.

What is said in the advisory on Ukraine-Russia war?

The advisory on the Ukraine-Russia war said the channels made false claims and misrepresented international agencies while reporting the issue. There has also been talk of channels using such blasphemous headlines and taglines which had nothing to do with the news.

The advisory also stated that several journalists and anchors made fabricated and baseless claims and used exaggeration to provoke the audience.

The ministry has also cited examples of false and inflammatory headlines in its advisory. These include headlines such as ‘Zelensky upset with nuclear Putin’ and ‘Worry of nuclear action gives Zelensky depression’. The headline ‘Ali, Bali and Khalbali’ has also been mentioned.

What was said on the coverage of Jahangirpuri?

Coming to the Jahangirpuri violence , the advisory states that some channels shared news and videos of violence with provocative headlines which may create communal hatred and disturb peace and law and order.

According to the advisory, some channels communalised the government’s action in Jahangirpuri and tried to disrupt the investigation by broadcasting unverified CCTV footage.

Advice not to broadcast debates with unparliamentary, provocative and anti-social language

The ministry has also taken cognizance of the debates on TV channels. The advisory said that some channels telecast debates with unparliamentary, provocative and socially unacceptable language on the Jahangirpuri developments.

The ministry has asked the channels not to telecast such debates, communal remarks and derogatory references which can have negative psychological effect on the viewers and also disturb communal harmony and peace.
