The Headlines Today’s office in the Capital was ransacked by suspected RSS workers. The attack was reportedly to protest against a sting operation that was aired by the channel.
Commenting on the attack, QW Naqwi, News Director, TV Today Group, told exchange4media, “This is a very sad and unfortunate incident and is a blatant attack on India’s democracy and freedom of speech and expression. We condemn the attack. The attack was carried out by people who cannot stand the truth.”
The sting operation exposed the saffron brigade’s links to the Mecca Masjid and Ajmer Sharif bombers. The channel had also carried out a sting operation on senior RSS leader Indresh Kumar.
A large mob had gathered outside the channel’s building and shouted slogans in support of their leaders exposed in the sting. They broke glass panes and ransacked property.
The attack has been condemned by the entire media fraternity.
