Moral Policing


We are going to upload a promotional video on You Tube where we want to high light some social problems. Though sex with children is illegal but according one estimate, about half a million Indian children are used in sex trade.

Many Indians including politician want to dictate the way women should behave or dress up in public and even blame their ‘dress sense of women’ for molestation or rape.But strangely these so called custodian of Indian culture and heritage remain silent when foreign tourists often face harassment in public places such as groping by unknown faces, molestation even rape.For them moral policing is the best way to ‘protect India’s culture and heritage’.

Honor killing is barbaric and shameful acts of murder. Marriage out of caste or religion outraged family members and even father, brother and other family members commit heinous crime like killing their daughters and sisters to protect ‘family honor’.

‘Narrow definition of nationalism’

….By Pushing a narrow definition of nationalism BJP lawmakers are not only playing with fire but also doing a huge disservice to the idea of India. In a country as vast and diverse as ours, a single slogan ( Bharat Mata ki Jay- Long live Mother India) or dietary ( consuming beef) preference can’t be the marker of one’s patriotism…….. –The Times of India Editorial

 

Caught on Camera


bew.jpgA Sting operation carried out by a news web portal Narada News where the ruling political party of West Bengal TMC’s 11 prominent leaders and ministers ‘caught on camera’ accepting bribes sparks controversy about the ethical problems of any sting operation.

Here I reproduce my earlier blog about the deception and lie play major roles in any undercover operation.

As an Investigative Reporter,I admire the works of Henry Demarest Lloyd,Nellie Bly,Jacob A Riis,Benjamin Flower,Frank Norris,Ida Tarbell,Charles Edward Russel,Dravid Graham,Graham Phillips,Lorana Sullivan.Henry published a series of articles exposing corruption in business and politics in the Atlantic and North American Review.Nellie a Young reporter worked with The Pittsburgh Dispatch and later Joseph Pulitzer’s The New york world.Bly specialized in undercover reporting,her first hand tales of the lives of ordinary people was her speciality.Lorana Sullivan was a worthy successor to the pioneer American Investigative Journalist Ida Tarbell.As a reporter of the London Observer,uncovering the business background and financial dealings of Mahamed-al-Fayed after he acquired Harrods.In India,Indian Express was the pioneer of Investigative Journalism.in recent times, ‘Tehelka’ carried out important sting operations which exposes corruption in high places.Though,deception is a part of the investigative reporting,purists have some reservations about these methods.’We don’t have the authority of a crossing guard.No one elected us to do anything.yet each day we try to make decisions regarding hidden cameras…That is our job and our responsibility’.

Here, I want to quote veteran journalist Vir Sangvi:

There is the classic ethical problem that haunts all sting operations: can you hold somebody responsible for a crime that he would not have committed if you had’t encouraged him? The essence of all entrapment is that you promise a man a reward for breaking the law and then, apprehend him when he takes the bait.
Journalists were undecided about the ethics of such operations, I suggested. We all accept that some level of entrapment is a part of all law enforcement. For instance, the police always send a dummy customer to a brothel and then arrest the prostitutes only when money has changed hands. The prostitutes could claim, in their defense, that no crime had taken place or even, that it would’t ever have taken place but for the blandishments of the police. On the other hand, the police could retort that the brothel was open for business anyway and only by dispatching a dummy customer could they establish that sexual favours could be purchased……..
