Beware of Pro-Putin Modi
Updated: Nov 16
The G7 must be extra cautious about an India under a pro-Putin Modi.
The grouping of seven of the world’s advanced economies is required to keep its eyes wide open to how India uses or abuses its missions in intelligence gathering or covert operations that may, in fact, be helping Russia and/or even China.
The killing of Nijjar, a Canadian citizen, could just be the tip of the iceberg.
India’s clandestine activities on foreign soil could well be much deeper.
India’s Hate-Filled Mainstream Media
Another aspect that warrants international attention is the contamination of airwaves by India’s notorious mainstream media that continues to stream into G7 homes and smartphones.
Modi’s political opponents have already identified 14 such anchors who spread hate in their shows.
The opposition alliance has decided not to participate in their programs.
The 14 have been identified as Aman Chopra, Amish Devgan, and Anand Narasimhan of News 18; Chitra Tripathi and Sudhir Chaudhary of Aaj Tak; Gaurav Sawant and Shiv Aroor of India Today TV; Prachi Parashar of India TV; Arnab Goswami of Republic TV; Rubika Liyaquat of Bharat 24; Navika Kumar and Sushant Sinha of Times Now; Aditi Tyagi of Bharat Express; and Ashok Shrivastav of DD News.
Media regulators and watchdogs in G7 nations must guard their airwaves from this hate campaign unleashed by the identified media outlets and their show hosts.
G7 nations are encouraged to tackle this issue by contemplating travel restrictions on these anchors and implementing strict monitoring of their media outlets within their territories.
