What makes you an anti-national? Eating beef? Asking the government for details on the surgical strike? Or running an interview with the opposition leader? Recently, NDTV chose to ride the nationalistic wave, along with other channels, and dropped Barkha Duttâ€™s interview with former home & finance minister P Chidambaram declaring: â€˜India above politicsâ€™. Hartosh Singh Bal, political editor of The Caravan, joins this episode of Hafta and tells us why news organisations taking such a stance is dangerous for journalism. Abhinandan Sekhri, Madhu Trehan, Anand Ranganathan and Manisha Pande along with our guest discuss why media is not wrong in asking for details of the surgical strike. They also discuss if debates on triple talaq should be separated from the one on Uniform Civil Code. All this & a lot more on this episode of NL Hafta.
