India’s media is a cesspool of hate, intolerance and discrimination.
The new government of Prime Minister Narendra Modi has taken a bold, even radical step towards combating the menace.
But the new law has yet to make its way through Parliament.
The media has, however, been a vocal target of Modi’s ire.
It has made headlines for its coverage of a series of communal incidents in the past two months.
It was recently accused of covering up the murders of Dalit Muslim men in Uttar Pradesh, who were allegedly killed by mobs.
The same month, Al Jazeera was accused of “failing to investigate” a series, and allegedly covering up it, in Uttaram.
This is just one of a long list of allegations against Al Jazeera.
The network is being accused of being complicit in the ongoing violence in Kashmir and a host of other areas in the region.
It is also accused of supporting India’s military-backed government in the country’s troubled North East.
Al Jazeera is also being accused in the global media of failing to report the growing violence in Bangladesh and the human rights abuses against Rohingya Muslims.
The company’s journalists are under increasing pressure.
In May, the company’s chief editor was sacked after the BBC announced it would be pulling Al Jazeera India’s English-language coverage of the Rohingya crisis.
The BBC also announced that it would cut its English- and Arabic-language broadcasts.
The news came just days after Al Jazeera published an op-ed on its website calling on the Bangladeshi government to take immediate action to protect the Rohingya.
A series of Al Jazeera articles have been lambasting Modi and his government for what they consider a series in the news that they consider to be biased or “fake news”.
Al Jazeera has been the target of many of these accusations, and in recent weeks it has also faced a barrage of criticism.
On Friday, a group of journalists, academics and human rights activists demanded that Al Jazeera retract its latest article.
Al Jazeera’s editor-in-chief, Rania Khalifa, wrote an open letter to the network’s editors, in which she accused the network of covering the violence in Myanmar and the Rohingya issue as “news”.
In a letter posted on Twitter, Khalifa wrote that the network had failed to investigate the murder of three Dalit men by mobs in Uttaranchal, Uttar Pradesh.
“We want to stress that the violence is not being framed as a news story,” Khalifa said in the letter.
“It is being framed by the media as a story that needs to be reported.
It’s not true.”
The letter also highlighted the violence against Dalit Muslims in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh and demanded that the government stop “the dehumanising of the Dalit community, the killing of Dalits, and the systematic violations of their rights”.
“As the head of the media in India, you are responsible for the safety of journalists,” Khalifas letter read.
“If you do not take action against these incidents, we will make sure that you are not allowed to continue reporting in this country.”
In response, the network wrote back, saying that “the allegations against us are totally baseless, based on an unfounded allegation, and based on the unfounded information supplied by our own sources”.
Khalifa has called on Al Jazeera to publish an apology to the families of the three men killed, as well as the network to “exercise restraint and ensure the safety and dignity of journalists in India”.
Al Jena, the parent company of Al Jafaria, the Al Jazeera English network, has also been criticized for its handling of the situation in Myanmar.
In February, it was widely reported that Al Jifa had suspended Al Jazeera correspondent, Sohail Hassan, after he reported on the death of a Rohingya Muslim woman.
In March, the Myanmar government’s human rights commission reported that the human-rights commission had not been able to obtain information from the network that would have helped it understand what was happening in the Myanmar state.
In July, the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime called on the government to “proactively investigate” allegations of “human rights violations” by the Myanmar military, which has been accused of a spate of massacres of Rohingya Muslim men and boys.
Al Ajay was one of several media outlets that were critical of Al Ajai’s reporting in the Middle East.
The channel was also criticised for its decision to publish a report on the Rohingya problem in Myanmar that was published days after the Myanmar army declared a state of emergency.
In a statement issued after the report was published, Al Ajia said it had been “distracted” by “all these controversies” and that it was “aware of the serious issue that has been raised” about the report.
“Unfortunately, the media coverage in this issue has not been consistent,” the statement said.
“This is not
