Jawaharlal Nehru University Professor Nivedita Menon on Wednesday hit back to Zee News editor Sudhir Chaudhary for calling her speech in campus venomous and blaming her for infusing hatred among youngsters.
While standing by her addressing in campus, Menon who teaches at the Centre for Comparative Politics and Political Theory at the International Studies school in JNU said "Look who’s calling us anti-national! the person who was jailed for demanding Rs 1000 cr from Jindal Steel and Powers Limited for not airing negative news, and is an alleged criminal extortionist,".
Menon on Wednesday morning hit back to Zee News editor by writing a blog in Delhi based kafila.org and while talking to News World India said "I stand by what I have written in kafila".
Menon while divulging the details of 'criminal' past of Sudhir Chaudhary wrote that 'though she don't want to engage with the 'criminal extortionist' but would like to clear the video which Zee news aired".
"Zee News Editors Sudhir Chaudhary and Samir Ahluwalia were arrested in 2012 after a complaint by Jindal Steel and Power Limited that they had demanded Rs 100 crore in return for not airing negative news against the firm. Chaudhary and Ahluwalia were released on bail later. Chaudhary and Ahluwalia were caught on camera demanding Rs 100 crore for not airing negative news against the firm," she wrote in Kafila.org.
However she didn't stop here, menon while taking her attack forward added that Sudhir during his time with a news channel 'Janmat' ran a fake sting operation on a school teacher for supposedly running a sex racket, as a result of which she was attacked by a mob on camera. However later it was proved as fake sting in court.
While raising questions on the journalistic ethics of Zee News, menon said " I do not watch “news” on a channel that brazenly doctors videos and seems ignorant of minimum levels of journalistic ethics".
"The Video which Zee News aired in DNA show is not doctored but massively contextualized," Menon added.
