Note to NDTV

I hope you realise that Kashmiri Pundits pretty much despise your channel. How can you call the BJP's actions in Jammu 'communal' when giving the PDP a clean chit and talking of how Muslim sentiments were hurt. Have you ever been to a Pandit camp? Have you spoken about the huge levels of corruption inside teh PDP and that Mehbooba Mufti was freed in exchange for terrorists (but the NDA screwed up on IC-814, which I also buy, but same side of the coin after all). I mean, it is quite obvious that PDP indulged in some electioneering and communalised the issue. In fact, Muslim appeasement by so-called 'secular' parties is fine, but if the Hindu right-wing even makes a peep on religion, it is deemed communal. Plus, henceforth, please somewhere in your channel website or during a broadcast, please carry a disclaimer mentioning that your promoter's brother-in-law is the Chinese tatta in India. A western channel would make that disclosure, why don't you? people need to know that Radhika Roy and Brinda Karat are sisters. If you can spend time doing FUD stories (Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt) on unproven allegations surrounding mobile radiation you certainly can do this much.
I'm not saying this because I might have right-wing sympathies, several parts of the Sangh are frankly unpalatable, run by illiterate idiots. The last government did not smell of roses, but I think the entire country would agree they did a better job than this bunch of twats.

Please stop posting your immature and uninformed comments about honest politicians like prakash karat...Also, your unjustified criticism about an ideology you know little about isn't just foolish...but shows your seriousness while remarking on critical issues.

i'm posting excerpts from prakash karat's article in covert's first issue..to remind you that comments like chinese stooge and other stupid remarks are baseless...

"The stand of the CPI(M) on the nuclear issue has been distinctive, and does not coincide with the Chinese stand on the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) and the non-proliferation regime. The CPI(M) has always main­tained that India should not be a signa­tory to the NPT as it is a discriminatory treaty. China is one of the five nuclear-weapon states recognised as such in the NPT. Unless there is a clear time-frame set for nuclear disarmament by the nu­clear-weapon states, it is unfair to ask other countries to join the NPT.........


"Even if China were to take a position in the NSG in fa­vour of a waiver for India, the CPI(M) would still be opposed to the present nuclear deal with the United States. The CPI(M) stand is determined by its understanding that the Indo-US nucle­ar deal does not serve India’s interests — and this is irrespective of what Chi­na’s stand is or would be".

Hi,
I completely agree with you on the Kashmiri Hindu aspect. Most journalists dont even bother to attend the protests that hindu kashmiris hold every Sunday at Jantar Mantar. Even I think channels are biased and the previous Government did a much better job. The sympathy factor has to be equal for Kasmiri Hindus and Muslims. How many of us despite having roots in Kashmir can go there and live peacefully

Good one this....

All you need to do in India, is to say 'how come no one has a Hindu angle?', and you are a right wing communal, out to murder all those toting guns, with, at best, a placard...
