Talk on ‘Journalism: an unethical business’ in AMU

Aligarh Activists’ Society, an organization of the students of Aligarh Muslim University organized a talk in the university premises. The topic of the talk was ‘Journalism: an unethical business’ and the speakers of the event were Asad Ashraf (Journalist, Tehelka), Talha Rashadi (Spokesperson, Rashtriya Ulema Council) and Prof. Arshi Khan (Professor, Aligarh Muslim University). Asad Ashraf, a recent victim of the unethical media trial, told the students about the way the media now days is doing a politically influenced and opinion oriented journalism. Talha Rashadi, on the other hand, kept his lecture revolving around the biased media reporting when it comes to minority issues. He raised a number of important questions and named a few reputed media houses about their TRP-earning reporting and also did he dare to challenge the media houses for court trials. He also quoted the infamous ‘Batla House Encounter’ in his speech. Later, Prof. Arshi Khan threw light on the reasons behind the declining ethnicity of the Media houses. He, without naming a particular organization, told the students how corporate lobby influences the media houses for their interests. Students turned up in large number and showed a great token of solidarity with Asad Ashraf who was allegedly labeled an ISIS sympathizer by a well known senior journalist in a live television show.
