something that attracted wide criticism… One should imagine that if, in an editorial on April 23, it means it’s being looked after”. “seriously impeded by your job at Channel Nine” “It means that the game is in good health, But we are evaluating some of the considerations that you mentioned. "I’d like to see additional partners in the Asia-Pacific region take advantage of membership in APEC,250 laptops and 43, State public sector KELTRON, Qaumi Tanzim and Jadid Khabar carried the event on their front pages,as can beaccessed online at akhbarurducom a prominent section of the Hindi media appeared to belittle the significance of the protests Most leading Hindi newspapers showed a shrinking space for this churn in the country while some others placed it in the inside city pages It seems as if editors of Hindi newspapersassumed that #NotInMyName was a pretty hashtag but not a newsworthy event of national significance For instance the leading Urdu daily in IndiaInquilabpublished front page reports from Delhi’s Jantar Mantar protests where scores of journalists and intellectuals took out processions decrying mob lynchings as well as from the gathering in Mumbai where over 200 citizens and celebrities shouted ‘Not In My Name’ protesting the hate crimes Inquilab dedicated more than half its first and second pages to the protests and also carried aneditorial and several opinion pieces on 29 June Dozensof everyday Mumbaikars and celebrities participated in the protests on 28 June PTI A day later on 30 June Inquilab continued to cover the event Shakeel Shamsi the north regional editor ofthe publication had a signed column in which he wrote: "Saba Diwan’s call that emerged on social media and inevitably birthed the nationwide secular movement (tahreek) on Wednesday has left a lasting impact on the entire country The sincerity that this protest has shown has not only earned the media’s attention but also inspired the Prime Minister Narendra Modi who categorically denounced the cow-vigilantes" Tellingly Shamsi has some notable and substantial points to make in this context He adds "The communalist forces are not aware of the fact that India’s people may well be ‘religious’ (mazhabi) by professing different faith traditions but they are not ‘extremists’ or ‘fundamentalists’ (intiha pasand) True Hindus in India never willed to enforce their religious convictions on the religious minorities Rather they invite and happily dine with the Muslims in Iftar gatherings and befriend them in their religious festivals Most Hindus even today believe that they seek blessings in visiting the Sufi shrines They show reverence for Sai Baba even after he was rejected by Swami Swaroopanand Saraswati as he called him a ‘beef-eating Muslim’" In the 1 Julyedition of Inquilab Shahid Lateef who is the current editor of the publication in Mumbai has also penned down an editorial entitled ‘Not in My Name’ "Many (Urdu-speaking people) including me could not fathom at the very outset of the ‘Not in My Name’ event as to why the protests against cow-vigilantism were named this It seemed as if the cow was saying that "hate crimes and killings should not be perpetrated in my name" But research tells us that ‘Not In My Name’ was a slogan raised by the conscious Americans who stood out to protest against the US government’s war on Vietnam" Butthe Dainik Jagran group which owns the Urdu daily has a shown a different editorial choice when it comes to its Hindi language publications In contrast to Inquilab’s patently clear detailed and wide coverage of the events the Hindi daily Dainik Jagran had a very restricted reportage on the event It gave a very constrained news of the event that too on the seventh page Simply titled ‘Protests against communal incidents’ (Sampradayik ghatnaon ka virodh) Jagran’s report purports to only tell the readers that a number of social activists students and Left-wing workers took part in the Jantar Mantar protest against the against communal incidents The report particularly named CPI’s D Raja KC Tyagi of JDU deputy chief minister of Delhi Manish Sisodia and JNU’s missing student Najeeb Ahmed’s sister as the key participants The two-column story which seemed nothing short of a small news snippet in the print edition of the Hindi daily now runs only in one paragraph and hardly in 100 words on the Jagran website Similarly the other leading Hindi-language daily Hindustan also sufficed to inform that scholars students and artists took out a protest in Delhi Doesn’t this reveal that the revolutionary significance of the ‘Not In My Name’ for a large chunk of the Hindi readers was undermined by the Hindi-language editors Another interesting contrast was seen in the editorial choices of Urdu-language daily Roznama Rashtriya Sahara and its Hindi edition While the Sahara Urdu edition’s editorials along with the national news pages gave prominence to the Jantar Mantar protests the Hindi editorials decided to skip commenting on the protest altogether Even today on 1 July Rashtriya Sahara Urducarried a lead column on this incident penned by Prof Akhtarul Wasey He has noted a very pertinent aspect of this issue which has gone largely overlooked in other Urdu newspapers Wasey an expert on Muslim affairs and a close community watcher writes in Rashtriya Sahara Urdu in his article dated 1 July "In India we land very few opportunities when all people regardless of faith and creed take out such joint protests However (it has to be noted) that those seeking justice for Muslims and confronting the cruelties being inflicted on them are not Muslims This is a reminder for Muslims to stand up for the justice for all But we regret that Muslim outfits like Muslim Personal Law Board Jamiat Ulama-e-Hind Jamat-e-Islami and several others which organise large-scale Islamic gatherings were not seen in this joint protest Neither their towering leaders had the guts to participate in protests being held in the scorching heat on roads We salute Saba Dewan who has created a movement of humane understanding from Jantar Mantar to other parts of the country" While Amar Ujala reported the ‘Not In My Name’ on its sixth pagemuch like Dainik Jagran it also highlighted the political angle of the event by particularly naming the politicians including Manish Sisodia of the Aam Aadmi Party However for the ‘Not In My Name’ protesters it was gratifying to note that there was no dearth of reports on the event in the English press The major English dailies particularly The Indian Express Times of India Hindustan Times The Hindu Deccan Chronicle and Deccan Heraldall carried full reports andalso put forth objective analysis from a spectrum of thinkers They did not succumb to the idea that ‘Not In My Name’ was a just an initiative of the Indian citizens mobilised by a call from a filmmaker Since it was not seen as an initiative of a particular outfit or a political ploy of any party it drew an unprecedented participation as well as media attention Sahafat.
