Has the Indian media lost all its moralities, ethics and responsibility towards its country? When you flip through any Indian news channel all that you find is a documentary version of any bollywood movie. What I am coming to say is the news media in the country has got caught in the web of commercialization, so much so that they have forgotten their basic duty towards their nation. How many times have you been inspired to fight for a social cause plaguing your country, by watching a heart wrenching moment on a Indian news channel?

Check the story below that was forwared to me by a friend of mine and judge for yourself.

By the time u guys read this news, the body of Major Manish Pitambare, who
was shot dead at Anantnag, would have been cremated with full military
honors.

On Tuesday, this news swept across all the news channels ‘Sanjay Dutt
relieved by court’. ‘Sirf Munna not a bhai’ ’13 saal ka vanvaas khatam’
‘although found guilty for possession of armory, Sanjay can breath sigh of
relief as all the TADA charges against him are withdrawn’
Then many personalities like Salman Khan said ‘He is a good person. We
knew he will come out clean’. Mr Big B said “Dutt’s family and our family
have relations for years he’s a good kid. He is like elder brother to
Abhishek”. His sister Priya Dutt said “we can sleep well tonight. It ‘s a
great relief”

In other news, Parliament was mad at Indian team for performing bad; Greg
Chappell said something; Shah Rukh Khan replaces Amitabh in KBC and other
such stuff. But most of the emphasis was given on Sanjay Dutt’s “phoenix
like” comeback from the ashes of terrorist charges. Surfing through the
channels, one news on BBC startled me. It read “Hisbul Mujahidin’s most
wanted terrorist ‘Sohel Faisal’ killed in Anantnag , India . Indian Major
leading the operation lost his life in the process. Four others are
injured.

It was past midnight , I started visiting the stupid Indian channels, but
Sanjay Dutt was still ruling. They were telling how Sanjay pleaded to the
court saying ‘I’m the sole bread earner for my family’, ‘I have a daughter
who is studying in US’ and so on. Then they showed how Sanjay was not
wearing his lucky blue shirt while he was hearing the verdict and also how
he went to every temple and prayed for the last few months. A suspect in
Mumbai bomb blasts, convicted under armory act…was being transformed
into a hero.

Sure Sanjay Dutt has a daughter; Sure he did not do any terrorist
activity. Possessing an AK47 is considered too elementary in terrorist
community
and also one who possesses an AK47 has a right to possess a pistol so that
again is not such a big crime; Sure Sanjay Dutt went to all the temples;
Sure he did a lot of Gandhigiri but then………..

Major Manish H Pitambare got the information from his sources about the
terrorists’ whereabouts. Wasting no time he attacked the camp, killed
Hisbul Mujahidin’s supremo and in the process lost his life to the bullets
fired from an AK47. He is survived by a wife and daughter (just like
Sanjay Dutt) who’s only 18 months old.

Major Manish never said ‘I have a daughter’ before he took the decision to
attack the terrorists in the darkest of nights. He never thought about
having a family and he being the bread earner. No news channel covered
