Narendra Modi on Aap Ki Adalat: What really offended the India TV’s minority community editorial director?

india-tv

Mumbai, Apr 14: India TV was basking in the glory of its big catch – Bharatiya Janata Party’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi’s rare interview on television. It pulled all stops in promoting the interview and build up the event as not to be missed. But the channel editorial director Qamar Waheed Naqvi has spoiled the editor Rajat Sharma’s party. Naqvi has resigned as the channel editorial director to protest the ‘fixed’ interview.

It took Naqvi two full days after the interview was aired to find it was fixed. And just what about the interview was fixed? Was Modi not asked on all the issues that the media has been raising for the past few months or years? Did he not answer questions on minority community or why he chose not to wear the skull cap? Did he not answer how his puppy quote was twisted? Even when it came to BJP’s internal matters he was quite open about it. Be it ticket to L K Advani or denying ticket to Jaswant Singh or people from dubious background joining party.

Did Naqvi quit fearing community backlash or did he also realise that he should also side with secular political parties?

Watch the complete interview of Narendra Modi on India TV here.

    SEE ARVIND KEJRIWAL’ HYPOCRISY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    In Punjab’s Muslim-dominated Malerkotla,Kejriwal refuses to chant Vande Mataram.On the last day of his Punjab tour on Sunday, AAP convener Arvind Kejriwal refused to chant the slogans ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai’ and ‘Vande Matram’ in Muslim dominated Malerkotla.

    While speaking at ralliesAk normally starts with Bharat Maata Ki Jai and Vande Mataram However at Malerkotla, which is the only Muslim town of Punjab, the AAP
    chief avoided the slogans.

    Does he mean to say that MUSLIMS do not love India??He has insulted the Muslims by not starting his rally in MALERKOTLA by saying “BHARAT MATA KI JAI”????? Someone please question him

    DID HE TELL ANYONE WHY THE JAN LOK PAL BILL DOES NOTCOVER
    THE FOREIGN FUNDED NGOS . WHY SHOULD FOREIGN FUNDED NGOS ESCAPE THE SCRUTINY OF THE JAN LOK PAL ? WHY SHOULD FUNDING BY FOREIGN GOVERNMENTS ORTHEIR AGENTS OR DUBIOUS DONORS BE EXEMPT FROM THE JURISDICTION OF THE JAN LOK PAL ?

    It took Naqvi of India TV two full days after the interview was aired to find it was fixed. And just what about the interview was fixed?

    Well the real reason is that Ashutosh of AAP party has asked him to resign. He will soon be joining AAM AADMI PARTY.
    Mark my words. I am predicting this. Tomorrow’s newspapers will have these headlines”
    It is sad that AAP >. has become a party of liars and cheats.
    They are all Anarchists headed by ARVIND KEJRIWAL.

    IndiaTV’s interview of the Gujarat CM has become the butt of joke on social media after his epic ‘interview’ with Madhu Kishwar’s on NewsX.

    The interview was sort of ‘hero-worshipping,’ and was conducted amidst chant of ‘Modi-Modi’ and ‘Bharat Maata Ki Jai.’ Although reference to the 2002 riots were made in passing, as also his tall claims on development, but not on one issue was cross-questioned. He was simply allowed to have his ways.

    Rajat Sharma asked him about a tweet of Omar Abdullah where he had said that Modi accepts turban and other head-gears in other states, but not when a Muslim clergy offers him a cap. In reply among chants of ‘Bharat Mata’ and ‘Modi-Modi,’ Gujarat CM turned philosophic and said that he respects all religions and cultures although follows his own alone and that he does not believe in the politics of symbolism, but wants to see “Quran in one hand and Computer in other” of Muslim students.

    Sharma did not even bother to ask him why the sameparameters were not applied when accepting turbans or other similar head-gears in Punjab, Assam, Manipur, etc. Or does Mr Modi think that Muslim cap is ‘foreign’ unlike other ‘native’ traditions.

    In fact while introducing Modi and giving his background, the celebratory ‘background’ talks how he started as a tea-vendor and rose on to power and how he is attacked by top politicians in opposition, but had no reference to the 2002 Gujarat riot.

    The ceremonial ending of programme where ‘people’s judge,’ author and academician Pushpesh Pant, passes his judgment was even problematic, when he talks about the ‘clean chit’ given to him by various courts and SIT, as the interview was not at all focused on the subject. He went on to suggest to Modi that “people will question him for next five years and beyond” for his work as prime minister. He has already accepted that Modi is going to be the PM.

    Adeel: I fully appreciate your feelings and respect it. You do not have to do what you do not feel is your way of thinking. I salute you for your stand and for your conviction
    My question is why did KEJRIWAL change his stand. If he says “Bharat Maata Ki Jai ” in every speech then why did he not do that ?? Just because he was addressing a predominantly MUSLIM CROWD.??? Is he a chameleon?? A hypocrite?? For votes he is just pandering and fooling the public?? Now he is trying to buy MUSLIM VOTES
    He does not talk of governance, development , education etc.
    I am not a BJP or Congress fan- I supported AK when he was fighting against corruption. But now none of his speeches talk of fighting corruption. Ran away from DELHI in 49 days because he wanted to be PM?????????????
    His one point agenda is now to get in the news everyday by speaking against MODI. Will that help the development of India?? You are an intelligent man and can think for yourself . HE IS AN ANARCHIST.

    India.com जैसी बड़ी साईट भी इतना बड़ा झूठ लिखती है कि “It took Naqvi two full days after the interview was aired to find it was fixed.” यानि कि Qamar Waheed Naqvi को पूरे दो दिन लग गए यह समझने में कि #नरेन्द्र_मोदी का इंटरव्यू फिक्स्ड था.. इस तरह से पाठकों को बरगलाने वालों को कौन समझाए कि इस साक्षात्कार के ओन एयर होने के वाली रात को ही#क़मर_वहीद_नक़वी ने यह निर्णय ले लिया था और सुबह उठते ही सबसे पहला काम#रजत_शर्मा को अपना इस्तीफ़ा मेल करने का किया..
