Patna, Jun 3: Congress leader Shakeel Ahmed on Thursday charged the media with building “an atmosphere of mistrust” by linking terror incidents with Muslims and said it should not happen.
“An atmosphere of mistrust is being built by media when they link the terror incidents with Muslims... It should not happen,” Ahmed, also in-charge of the party in Jharkhand, said while addressing a seminar here.
“If any terrorists related incident occur, the media links it with Muslims... Though the authorities are not aware of the fact, the media starts pronouncing who is guilty,” he said.
Alleging that there was always discriminatory attitude towards the minorities, he appealed to the minorities that such attitude could be countered through “hard labour and education.”MP Maualana Mehmood Madani and JD(U)MP Monazir Hasan also spoke on the occasion. PTI
