When all Mumbai residents irrespective of caste and creed come out agains terrorism, all of them bear the brunt and then stand united, a few Hindi and Marathi dailies lowered the dignity of journalism.
The headlines of Saamna like 'Islami Qahar' and particularly 'Intelligence raha Fail, Minye kar gaye Khel' could be described as nothing short of poisonous (Minya is slang or local term to describe Muslims thus 'minye'). We all saw hundreds of Muslims donating blood and comint out in processions against terrorism. Those dead and those in solidarity with victims were also Muslims, such provacative headlines are a shame.
Samna, a Shiv Sena mouthpiece could have done better. However, I was surprised that nobody in media circules noticed such poor journalism (Is it journalism at all?). The headlines in Samana like 'Maharashtra bana Islami aatank ka godaam' left a bad taste. All headlines can't be mentioned but editorials and news coverage in English, Hindi, Urdu, Marathi and Gujarati papers of Mumbai were quite sensible. But the authorities and Press Council should take notice of this Reporting also.
