“The
banning
of
telecast
of
MediaOne
channel
without
citing
any
reason
was
undemocratic.
This
is
against
natural
justice.
The
Union
government
has
a
responsibility
to
cite
the
reason
behind
the
ban.
The
government
is
trying
to
implement
the
agenda
of
Sangh
Parivar
which
has
been
intolerant
against
unpleasant
truths,”
he
said.
He
said
the
ban
amounts
to
attack
on
media
freedom.

for
48
hours
over
their
coverage
of
communal
violence

saying
they
covered
the
Delhi
violence
in
a
manner
that
“highlighted
the
attack
on
places
of
worship
and
siding
towards
a
particular
community”.

“Channel’s
reporting
on
Delhi
violence
seems
to

it

on
the
vandalism
of
CAA
supporters,”
the

had
said,
adding,”
it
