हिन्दी मीडीया संवेदनहीन हो गया है…यह बात मेरठ में इन दिनों कुत्तों की निर्मम हत्या की क्रूर कवरेज के विषय के सन्दर्भ में कहना सही है… मेरठ में  एक प्रतिष्टित अख़बार ने…जन आंदोलन के तौर पर शहर से कमेले को हटाने की मुहीम चलाई थी, जिसे जनता का समर्थन प्राप्त था…कमेले पर जीत भी हासिल होती दिख रही थी….लेकिन इन चुनावों के दौर में इस मुद्दे को पशु कटान की जगह कुत्ते कटान में तब्दील कर दिया गया है….इसके पीछे अगर कॉंमेरसियल एंग्ल को छोड़ भी दिया जाए तो मानवता के नाते यह समझ से परे है…

from last three days the local papers are carring horriffic photographps of people killing stray dogs. The media have created so much hype that it is leaving an impression that dogs are not man’s best friend, they are the most dreaded enemy. This is proving disastrous for gullible citizens. Media should have been practical. It should have condemned this continuing dastardly acts. It is indeed needed to be probed as to why and how the focus from shifting the abbatoire has changed to killing of Dogs. Killing innocent friendly animals is an act to be condemned not glorified. It is not good to generalise here and there incidents and focus our total anger towards one community which have for long lived in harmony with us humans(sic!). Local media have carried horrific photographs that in morning we start feeling shattered, depressed. Whois allowing it. Perhaps some checks are needed.

I wanted to display the photographs on this blog but they are nauseating. Killing animals…oh! what a bravery the media is highlighting. Its now important for sensible denizens to come forward and to crticise these dastardly acts. Lets be Human. My sincere request to the media… as your loyal reader, pls take up real issues. Not to highlight artificial ones for some self interests…
