These days, the much talked Pegasus Project scandal is covered from political corridors to social media. Questions are being asked to the Modi government in the Pegasus Snooping case. It is being claimed that many journalists and opposition leaders have been spied on using Israeli software Pegasus Spyware. The Modi government has already denied these allegations saying reports have no factual basis.
The main opposition party Congress is constantly surrounding the government on this issue. It is being claimed that Rahul Gandhi’s phone was also snooped. Another interesting incident happened in the midst of all this. In fact, Dainik Bhaskar published an article on Modi and Shah’s snooping background when they were Chief Minister and Home Minister of Gujarat respectively. In which it was written on behalf of Dainik Bhaskar that the taping controversy is not new for Modi-Shah, even 15 years ago there were allegations of phone tapping of Gujarat leaders and officials. Dainik Bhaskar did this news on 19th July.
Apart from this, Dainik Bhaskar had made another news about the famous snooping case of Gujarat. At present, both these news have been removed from its portal by Dainik Bhaskar without citing any reason. For this, Dainik Bhaskar has been under constant criticism ever since Dainik Bhaskar removed both these news from its portal. It is being said that under the pressure of the Modi government, Dainik Bhaskar has removed this news from its portal.
For some time, the news being done by Bhaskar was constantly being praised. Even during the pandemic, Dainik Bhaskar kept journalism standards high and questioned the government on issues related to the public, reporting on the government’s failures. But at the moment it seems that Dainik Bhaskar is bowing before the Modi government.
Many questions are being raised after Bhaskar removed its own report from the portal. Apart from this, it will be emphasized more that the media of India is not free, it is not impartial. There have already been allegations that the media is working under the pressure of the government.
