Tablighi Jamaat was murdered in Delhi from March 1 to March 15. In this, around 5000 people gathered from abroad. Markaz was evacuated between lockdowns. After this, cases of infection had increased rapidly in many states.
The Supreme Court is unhappy with the Centre's response to a matter related to the media reporting of the Tablighi Jamaat. The Supreme Court on Tuesday told the Center that you should create a mechanism to focus on the content of TV and other media. If you do not do this, we will refer the matter to an outside agency.
Media institute accused of tarnishing the image of minorities
Jamiat-Ulema-e-Hind filed a petition in the Supreme Court in August. The petition was for TV reporting on the Tablighi Jamaat during Corona. The Muslim organization had said that media institutions are tarnishing the image of minorities and calling them a threat. On this, the Supreme Court said that the government will not work until we say no.
SC's instructions and suggestions to Center on fake news
In the last hearing too, the court tightened the center
In the last hearing on this matter, the Center had said that based on our experience, we have seen that the Center will not take action until we give instructions. We are not criticizing Tusshar Mehta, but the government will not work unless we give instructions and that is why this system is here.
The court had suggested to the Center that the National Broadcasting Association should also be made a party in this matter. The Press Council of India had told the court that we have taken into account 50 complaints of incorrect reporting. On the other hand, NBA had said that we have received 100 such complaints.
