The News Broadcasting Standards Authority (NBSA) has issued a special advisory laying out strict guidelines for news channels to follow while reporting on the Ayodhya case matter. The Supreme Court is expected to pronounce its ruling on the matter today November 9th, 2019.

The NBSA urged news channels to strictly adhere to the Code of Ethics and Broadcasting Standards and exercise extra caution to ensure that broadcasting of the news is not sensational, inflammatory or provocative in nature.

According to the advisory, "No broadcast should be made in any speculative manner in respect of the present proceedings before the Hon'ble Supreme Court nor of the judgment before it is pronounced; and of its likely consequence thereafter which may be sensational, inflammatory or provocative".

It goes on to say "No footage of the demolition of the Babri Masjid is to be shown in any news item relating to the Ayodhya matter".
