New Delhi, May 15, 2020—In the wake of the latest mass casualty incident in India, it seems that India is facing a unique challenge: How to get people to stop reading the mass media.
The most recent incident occurred in the state of Maharashtra, where a gunman opened fire on a crowded cinema in Pune, killing one person and wounding four others, all of them men.
According to reports, the attacker also killed a woman and injured a girl.
While it’s impossible to definitively pinpoint the source of the incident, it is believed that the gunman had been angered by a film made by a Muslim organisation in the city.
This prompted the mass shooting, which has sparked widespread condemnation and has seen the Indian media spotlight the role of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) group in the crime.
According to the New Indian Express, the gunman’s motive for the attack was that the film was allegedly blasphemous.
The paper reports that the victim’s family, a family friend, and local Muslim leaders had been informed of the attack, but that the police had failed to act.
The article goes on to note that “there was no indication of the involvement of any local community, or the police were not doing anything about it.”
As the paper points out, there is no law in India that prohibits anyone from reading or listening to mass media, but the fact that the newspaper reports that there is a shortage of police officers in Punes suggests that the situation is not as dire as it appears to be.
While the state government has launched a nationwide investigation into the incident and will reportedly release a report on the incident within the next few weeks, the government’s failure to act has created a situation in which people are not able to stop watching the media and continue to read articles.
A few days ago, a woman from the northeastern state of Jharkhand who was shot and killed by her own son for being too outspoken about his religious beliefs was the first victim of the mass murder.
Her death also provoked outrage across the country.
In India, the media is perceived to be an important tool for people to engage with society.
In the case of the Pune shooting, many people have pointed out that the mass killings in recent months are the result of an authoritarian state that is failing to respect basic human rights.
In fact, a few months ago, the Indian government issued a statement which described the mass shootings in India as a “human rights violation” and an “act of terrorism”.
In this case, it was the mass murderers who were acting in the name of religious values.
The lack of action from the government has left the Indian public in a state of shock.
On the one hand, they have blamed the Islamic militants who have killed thousands of innocents in their name.
On a daily basis, India’s media is full of articles about how the Islamic state is using India to recruit terrorists for the terrorist group.
On top of that, the authorities are refusing to act and are not taking any action against the perpetrators of the attacks.
On the other hand, the public is also left to wonder what happened to the victims and their families.
Is it because the media has not taken a strong stance against the Islamic militant group?
Or is it because some of the perpetrators have managed to get away with their crimes and remain anonymous?
As we noted above, it has been a very tough few months for Indian society.
But it is also clear that the media’s inaction has made the country’s situation even more desperate.
In addition to the mass-murdering incident, there have been numerous other attacks on Indian media outlets in the past month.
On February 11, the editor-in-chief of the Hindustan Times, a newspaper owned by the Hindutva movement, was gunned down.
On January 16, the owner of the Times of India was gunned back in his office, while on January 23, a journalist from the Times Today newspaper was gunned to death.
The recent mass shooting of a police officer is also an indication that the state is becoming increasingly violent and repressive.
Meanwhile, many of the Indian journalists have also come under fire for their coverage of the countrys growing anti-corruption movement.
The National Herald Tribune newspaper in India is currently embroiled in a legal battle with the Indian Council of Journalists over its coverage of anti-graft protests in India.
