I am totally agree with you. Our politicians and media are the real terrorists for india. There should be some strict rules and regulations for politicians and media. Whatever here is written it should not stay on this page only.. any how it should be reach to people..high court and most important media and politicians.

ban private news channel since they sensationalize issuies putting all rescuers and others in danger

Rajani Padipura, Mumbai
As common man in India, this is the least we can do to avoid unwanted media publicity to the terrorists and to save a few more lives during such terror attacks.

Rahul Kumar, Delhi
I support this initiative completely. But, would like to my fellows signatories to a reality. We are also responsible indirectly for media conduct, becuase if you have a look at TRP data, what people watch the most is Tears and Death. Lets not buy what we do not want, so the sellers change their products.

Manish Singh, Mumbai
Smita Manyar, Mumbai aka Bombay
Ridiculous on the part of e-media, hyping wrong info & sensationalising any trivial event. Media is the 1st who shld be taught a lesson. Instead of being directive & discreet they have made it a business to thrive on innocent lives. Citizens need true account of information not disarrayed reports based on stupid journalists thinking. My support to you Vishal, atleast 1 person is attacking the core of the problem.

uttiya bhattacharya, new delhi
Nooruddin S Jehangir, Pune
When i first saw thoe clips of Commandos entering the Building this very thing came to my mind as well.. I think that this is really a very stupid thing done by our news channels where highly qualified people were also sitting and they do not have this simple common sense i.e. not to show all that stuff.. it could definitely have set people lives at danger.. They cant just bring lives at risk to increase their channel ratings.. Thanks Vishal for your Initiative..

Madhu Ukkusuri, Chennai
Rachit N Sheth, Mumbai
Broadcast Limited NEWS channels & if Possible Pls suggest to have only 1 Newz Channel which contains only news and no other crap(Laughter show, etc). Delay with accuracy in news will be highly appreciated. 1more thing, \"Breaking News\" tag should be given when the news are enough mature! Special Thnx to Vishal Dadlani. GOD BLESS GOOD SOULS!

Yes, the media coverage was what the terrorists really wanted. And they must have been more than happy to go on a rampage. There should be restraint in showing anti-terrorist action keeping your nation before your sensationalism. Good work Vishal and hope we succeed !

Ram Kalyan Medury, Hyderabad
We need to STOP the media vultures who prey on terrorist incidents and compromise the security of the people and security personnel. Censorship laws ought to be imposed on affected areas such that security is never compromised. We are now dealing with urban guerilla warfare and need to relook at everything - media, politician accountability, bureucrat accountability, counter insurgency etc. This petition requests for a small change to happen with media first.

Neha Mutta, Mumbai
I fully support this initiative. No one is bothered about the country but themselves. Either they want TRPs or VOTES. They could not get NGO\'s for saving innocent lives but NGO\'s are readily available when a so called \"leader\" is just visiting a place for a few hours!

Sandeep Kapoor, jaipur
In India everything sells they were least concerned bout security.They were only worried abour TRP They are concerned only about New ITEM.For e.g Whenmr. Abu AZMI cme out rom site they wanted to have latest from Him.They all were pretending they are risking there life in gett in the coverage the news was not covered but i was sold they could not get the sponser\'s otherwise the would have got this news also sponsered.

The media has a very pro-active role to play in reforming the messy system that exists today. We surely dont want them to be irresponsible and join to cat race for TRP\'s. Let us all be real and work towards reforming the society we live. Peace - Karthik.

National safety and integraty stands above all. Strict laws should be amended against these incident. I strickly Condemned for this cheap behaviour of media.

Dinesh Minocha, Bangalore
Dr Arvind Sharma, Ghaziabad
Please dont forget the example of Munich Olympics where Israeli athletes were held hostage by the Palestine militants. The deployment of the German police commandos was exposed by TV cameras outside the building. The militants inside could see all the development outside and warned the German government. As a result the militants could blackmail the Germans into providing them safe passage, which was followed by a botched up operation, in which all the hostages were killed. That was in 1972, and the whole episode has been shown innumerable times on History Channel or National Geographic. Still Indian news channels were foolish to broadcast every thing live. They need to be reigned in by some laws. This cheap and irresponsible enthusiasm of the news channels needs to be checked. The channels cant take refuge under the excuse that they are just reporting to fulfill the viewers hunger for truth. This kind of reporting is nothing but titillation. By their logic of \'hunger for information\', they should be broadcasting even pornography! Obviously that is not allowed by the government because that goes against the social morals. Same applies to the live coverage of security operations, as this goes against the very safety and security of our citizens.

Kaustubh Phanse, Pune
Media, in particular TV News channels, has become a business with ruthless competition. Most news channels are always looking to \"sell\" news by flashing \"exclusive\" coverage of anything and everything under the sky. It\'s high time they learned to draw a line. Enough!

Arpit Srivastava, Bangalore
I totally main Support of your views. Newschannel just give live feeds in excuse of common people wanting to watch it but who will not want to watch any thing that is sensational. Its responsibility of the news channel to show whats require and not just create excitement among people and harm to the society. people will watch whatever is shown on television. India has a huge population of TV watchers which will watch whatever is shownto them even if its nothing worthwhile.

Ankit Malik, New Delhi
The media has behaved insensitively. They have misused their power. By sensationalizing the content, they have shown that they value their TRPs over the nation. The Right to Freedom Of Press should be curtailed for the electronic media (and not for the print media) because they have abused it at every instant. In their current avatar, they are a bane rather than a boon (unlike the print media)

mahesh, Mumbai
Anshul Agarwal, Bangalore
I think its a very valid point. But there are 2 folds to it. First, we as a citizen of India should also be aware of what is happening. Those who stay away from there family, news is the only way they can come to know about the exact situation. At the other end, yes it is helpful for the anti social elements as well. I feel there should be some restriction and not complete ban on the broadcast.

SANJAY PARDHI, NAGPUR
NEWS CHANNELS SHOULD BE BANNED.NOW-A-DAYS THESE CHANNELS ARE SHOWING SCARY, HORROR, STUPIDOUS AND FABRICATED PROGRAMMES INSTEAD OF NEWS.THESE CHANNELS SPREADING HIPE AND PANICKY BETWEEN PEOPLE BY SHOWING SMALL NEWS AS \"BADI KHABAR\"

Preeti Anand, Hyderabad
Yes Mr.Vishal, the feeling is mutual. Thanks for this effort. We are with you.

Sudhindra, Mangalore
Excellent Initiative. I completely agree with what Vishal has to say. Media is absolutely irresponsible.

Aditya Kuvalekar, Pune
Our country would rather be fortunate to see Barkha Dutt being taken off air. We have already lost a few jawans in Kargil thanks to her \"breaking news\" journalism. Now, a few more innocents in Mumbai. I really hope that this movement sees the light of success as soon as possible.

kamal kanwadia, new delhi
proud to be an indian !!!!

Alok Verma, Jamshedpur
Yes, the News channels have made a \'tamasha\' of the whole thing. All live broadcast should be stopped. Regular hourly feeds should be arranged by a spokespersons appointed by the goverment. Vishal I am with you.

Brinda, Pune
I agree. A newspaper report said that when the terrorists at Taj saw the TV report of a their accomplice being killed at Chowpatty, they were angry, and shot and killed hostages.

amita pandey, Mumbai
Prashant Yewle, New York
All the points mentioned are bang on target. The Indian media has never shown any professionalism in the coverage of news be it Mumbai terror attacks, Kargil war or any kind of mishaps all over India. It really is sad that these people care only for TRP ratings and dont look at the bigger picture of public welfare. Only if these people atleast understand the gravity of the situation and its after effects, things would be lot better.

Girish Patwardhan, Mumbai
Vamsi, Tampa, FL
Great initiative. Why could govt impose curfew and take all these media persons out of range. Also, why cant they setup a communications center and brief them on the operation?

Farhan Shaikh, Mumbai
Kaushik Raghunandan, Bangalore
NDTV, in particular and their correspondents like Barkha Dutt have continued to fire up the situation by passing irresponsible comments on the opposition, etc. while if fact it has clearly emerged that the Goverments at the centre as well as at the state had received multiple intelligence inputs. The reality is that NDTV\'s affinity towards congress and more importantly their conflict with the BJP is totally clouding and over-riding their neutral journalistic perspective.

Monica Farmaha, New Delhi
Prasanna, Chennai
Hi, This is the right approach. The channels need to have a sensible approach in sensationalising the news items. Since, they are trying to outdo each other, there needs to be strict law against these kind of Live programming.

Parag Ahire, Mumbai
I completely agree with the petition that the e-media should not have been so close to the security forces\' operational area. Instead the government should have bulit a temporary newsbriefing room away from actual action where only a government spokesperson (PRO) should have briefed the media on causlaties & expected wrap-up time without giving details of movement of the commandos.

sudhi, Bangalore
I also support.Media could have avoided until NSG commandos/police officials had taken control of the buildings.I feel for those guys.

Manoj Sharma, Mumabi
Ad. Praveen Soni , Vikhroli, Mumbai
a direct PIL for DESH DROH should also be filed against Mh. state CM, Home Minister, union Home Minister and kerela CM. they should be handed over to public for sentence. a power to recall MP/ MLA must be made in constitution of India. our rulers should be directly held responsible for the death and injury of general people of india. No security should be provided to politicitions.

Tushar Kanade, Pune
There should be a censor on news channels and a definition about \'what is news?\' should be discussed upon. There was no common command between security agencies as each and every one was giving news briefings and leaking away information.

Ankur Verma, New Delhi
I whole Heartedly agree with what has been mentioned in the petition.

Arun Kumar, Mumbai
I totally agree with Vishal. It is always interesting for the people sitting in their safe drawing rooms to know the happenings live, but the lives of innocent people and of rescue team members are much more valuable.

Ashwin Kandoi, Nashik
I agree and condemn and was my first reaction to this. The media at times is very ir-responsible and could have helped the police in mis guiding the terrorists rather than guiding them.

M.S. Ravi, Hyderabad
I fully support this initiative.

Geetha, Bangalore
Parag Dhonde, Mumbai
I agreed and support the stand that Vishal took. This people are worst then terrorist, when they were shutting and doing bomb blasts, killing several people. They fill great in saying “YE KHABAR HUMNE AAPKE PASS SABSAY PAHILE POHOCHAI HAI”. When whole nation was suffering this people were more worried about increasing there TDR. Keep repeating the same thing for whole day. They were showing the Live telecast of Landing of NSG group on different places so that the terrorist will directly shot them. I think this people are same as politician.

Archana, Bangalore
I support this PIL

Riyaz Rehman, Mumbai
Our society has become so voyeuristic that we are literally feeding on sensational news. But where national or individual security is in question, we ought to exercise restraint. This initiative has arrived apropos.

Dr. Deepali Garg, Hyderabad
Media should not be allowed to put the safety of our security people at stake, by airing live coverage of the action scene. The gravity of the situation should be given a top priority and nothing and noone should be allowed to hamper the mission.

Siddhesh Kharangate, Goa
The electronic media should be banned from showing live telecast of any military operation, involving national security.

Nikhil Desai, Mumbai
I support this petition. All the commando operation should always be secret and media should help covering it instead of exposing the positions and strategies of the military or NSG or Police etc.

This is very high time to regulate electronic media.For the shake of increasing there TRP there are not hesitant to show any information even if it may harm the security of country . The want to sensitize every piece of news. They are 24 hour hour chanels and for that they broadcast any piece of news whether it is relevent or not. The activities of electronic media must be regulated otherwise it can harm the country in many ways.

Throw these bloody politicians out and bring in fresh blood, at the same time do not forget the lesser known brave constables or individuals who have sacrificed their lives to make ours safe.

Arasu, New Delhi
I totally agree with you, felt the same when I was watching this live telecast.

Chirag, Mumbai
Media just want TRPs n mint money. They aint seriously bothered abt whether d news r real or fake.... on d Friday, dey reported dat r fresh firing in CST ... so dey even spread rumours n create fear in d minds of d people... dey r 2nd only 2 politicians... who r worst creatures by far

I think Vishal you are doing a good job. Media is doing all this for TRPs they don\'t bother about the security or welfare of people. At that time they should have shown what the political leaders are doing for the crisis and for people.

A step in the right direction

Indu Thomas, Bangalore, Karnataka
I absolutely agree that we need to do everything to protect our soldiers. it was scary to watch the live transmissions throughout the operation knowing that people who didn\'t have India\'s best interests in mind would also be following everything carefully. My brother is out there putting his life on the line for his country and the last thing I would want is for us to make him and the rest of the forces so vulnerable instead of bolstering their courage. I appreciate the need for us to know what\'s happening but not at the cost of the lives of our own soldiers and at the cost of exposing our own operations. On one hand I was very proud of our commandos but I would have been happier if the Kudos and applause happened at the appropriate time and place ie once they were out of there. I do appreciate the coverage that was given to the Martyrs, their funerals, the survivors. But, the live operation coverage was taking it too far ie both in terms of the security of our Forces, but also in terms of National Security. If people can get details about our landmarks from Google maps, don\'t you think that they would catch the minor details that was being captured during the live operations and plan their next moves ? I also think a gag order is also required on all officials till investigation has reached a credible level. Speculations and mis-quotations can have serious repercussions at the international level and our media/officials need to act responsibly.

Abhimanyu Roy, Bangalore
i agree with vishal

Amarjeet Dogra, Ahmedabad
I am fully agree with Vishal. Infact, I also had the same feeling watching the things live on TV. Infact, the news channels were providing the information to the terrorists unintentionaly which they should had struggled to got otherwise.

Neha Amesur, Bombay
Prashant Madnawat, Ghaziabad (u.p)
\"With rights comes the duties\".We fully understand the freedom the press should have in a democracy, but at the same time they should restrain certain self moral responsibilities.This act of their\'s might have put the innocent lives of many at risk just to justify their quest to be the first in the \"race \" of cracking the news first.

Mridul Nahata, Bangalore
Mridul Nahata, Bangalore. I agree with Vishal and what the government can make a rule is that the news channel can capture the whole action but they shouldn\'t be allowed to air it live.

Shreekanth Shivram, Pune
I support this initiative completely - Thanks Vishal for taking this initiative. Freedom of press is being misused time and again, I hope we get some laws in place, which does not compromise our national security.

In media most of the news are exaggerated and there only aim is TRP and not at all bothered about anyone’s pain. Gives misleading or misinterpreting information.

Sapna Shahani, Mumbai
Thanks for doing this Vishal. We all need to speak up and take small initiatives and follow through. They will not pull the wool over our eyes if we don\'t let them.

Madhusudan R, Mumbai
I fully agree. The chase for TRPs seems to have killed all professional ethics and security precautions. What seems to be common sense to the lay person eludes our TV channels. High time some rules were laid out for them - self-censorship works only when there is a consensus and maturity in the industry, which is totally lacking at the moment.

nitin k singh, hyderabad
I do share the anguish of Vishal over media and hence support this petition fully. Media has been pandering and biased in past, but this time their irresponsible and idiotic attitude has crossed the boundaries. I feel ashamed of them.

Poonam Chopra, Mumbai
I totally agree..This is gone far beyond now and we all really really need to wake up and act...

Sanjay Salunkhe, Bangalore
27th Nov 08 false news of Firing near CST was aired on some of the news channel.As such the channels were blocked in Mumbai. Media is trying to instigate this issue against Politician knowing the fact that it is not easy to rule in India. Which there has been lingual, Caste , religion & regional diff. among the people. Everytime abusing the Government institutes & Politician they are no good & corrupt. But then the politicians are our representative from our own society .they reflect what we are.

Gireesh Sreepathi, Bangalore

Vaibhav Kulkarni, Mumbai
The media hype in all this was really pathetic. There were channels even talking to terrorists and telecasting it!! Shouldnt these channels be banned??

Sanjeev Naik, Hyderabad
Wholly support this great initiative. Have already shunned all news channels, even during this entire coverage, as realised that other than sensationalising the attacks and incidents, and increasing their TRPs and displaying one-upmanship, they were not offering any positive outcome, which is the need of the hour. Further they also shamelessly played upon the emotions of unfortunate folks who were affected by the trauma of these incidents, instead of offering any far-reaching solution. Highly commend the print-media for being more sensitive on such things. Would also suggest that instead of so many news channels, there is some sort of legislation to restrict the overflow of the same information from various sources, who end up making more of interpretations than presenting just the facts

Nikhil,
Media\'s role is very important in such situation.But importance come with responsibility. My gut feeling is Media has helped terrorist indirectly for locating sabina... Apex court should take action and refrain media of doing such acts..

Raghu Satyanarayana, Bangalore
This is a right cause, it is unfair to broadcast every moves of the commandos while they are in action to save our life risking their own. Terroists who have access to these clips can get undue advantage of this information. The judiciary needs to come up with a set of rules and regulations for such telecast. Our news channels shouldn\'t dilute our own cause. Thanks Vishal, you are doing the right thing.

Amruta Potdar, Mumbai
The media has behaved very irresponsibly and needs to be punished severely.

Ashutosh Rawat, Pune
I support Vishal and urge for curb on live or deferred live telecast of any military operation for greater benefit of all. We cannot enjoy sensationalism by way of making a terrorist act look like a soap opera. Absolutely ridiculous and kiddish approach by media in the name of bringing \"live news\". Whereas the fact is that they were broadcasting \"Death news\"

krishna kishore, Bangalore
Media should play a responsible role in the system. Their freedom should not expose the nation\'s vulnerabilities, secret plan of actions. On the other side they should have concentrated towards helplines not just displaying the phone numbers on the screen but also by being responsive to the end person or family who are in grief.

sandeep chougule, Bangalore

Sualeh M. Keen, Pune
Media is unwittingly promoting terrorism. By giving it extensive coverage, they are in fact maximizing its terror impact. Media-savvy terrorists are deliberately creating wrong perceptions through the powerful visuals. The \"glamorous\" attire of the young terrorist responsible for the carnage at CST, circulated ad nauseum by the media, is an open invitation for young students of the country who have identity crisis and wear Che Guevara t-shirts, would probably go to any length for 15 minutes of fame. This young terrorist also had pink threads wrapped around his right wrist, which made him look like a Hindu, if one didn\'t know better. In fact, there are people in Pakistan who have are actually saying that Hindu-terrorists are responsible for the carnage, because \"the so-called terrorists look like Hindus\"! See this http://www.hotklix.com/?ref=content/152704

i work for the media and i feel that our lives and the lives of the armed forces who protect us are more important than television ratings.

Narendra Babu, Hyderabad
media cannot go scotfree for telecasting the commando operation live which in turn might have proved to be costly in terms of security of the guests locked themselves in the hotels, as well as hindering the smooth sailing of operation.

abhih, bangalore
Media was indirectly guiding the terrorist (who had Sat.Phones). Barkha Dutt and Rajdeep Sardesai were shouting at the top of their voice as though they were facing bullets (especially, Barkha Dutt, the sensationalizer). I&B Ministry was sleeping as other ministries, departments, in the government. Above all this, the frequent MEDIA LEAKS (CALLED EXCLUSIVES). i hope they mend, voluntarily or by a new law. jai hind. vande mataram

I fully agree with Vishal. I was feeling the same while watching the live coverage. \'Freedom of Press\' can not be an excuse for irresponsible reporting. Just like our \'foot in the mouth\' representatives from every political party, our media, particularly tv media, did not cover itself with glory in the moment of national grief. In fact they actively converted the moment of national grief to the moment of national shame. Today every action of media seems to be geared towards increasing TRPs. The greater purpose has taken a back seat.

Sanjeev Satyanarayan, New Delhi
The Electronic Media in their zeal to be the first to give news, footage and reporting more often than not go overboard... I feel the \"Freedom of Press\" should be suspended temporarily during such events...

The Hunger of media persons to \"show first\" has made them rediculuos, senseless and also showing their lack of humanity. The media now a days became a cheap salesman and making their bread on the cost of Humanity, Emotions & Nationalism.

I feel disgusted with the hypocracy shown by the media channel over the last week. while you blame th epoliticians and the like on how they were hungry for cheap publicity, all the channels were advertising on how best their channel is from teh competion by showcasing their journalists who were on the ground and on how quick each channel were in bringing the latest news. This is hypocracy of the highest order shown by the so called intellectuals of our society. THe media bosses are no better then our politicians. We are all opportunistic at the end of the day. Shame on us...

Media and all of us we need to demonstrate more responsibility and maturity. This sensationalism and our hunger to watch visual media (TV) is just not on. It is very much possible the live feeds would have provided clues to the terrorists on the strategy and positions that NSG commandos were taking . . . . Again it is a collective responsibility of the society not just media alone

Ramana Rao, Atlanta, Georgia
I would like to seek your help to create a non profit organization called \"ILoveMyIndia\" to help the security personel in india, be it the police or the armed forces. The purpose for this non profit organization should be to raise awareness of the heroics and sacrifices made by them. Its aim should be to induce pride and honor working to protect our nation. Funds raised by this non profit organization can be used for various purposes like Life insurance, education, training , contribution towards equipment upgrade etc. Its time we the people of India contribute to the cause of fighting terrorism and not leave it up to the govenment alone.

Ravindranath K, Hyderabad
I second your petition and am happy that such a petition is happening in the first place and sincerely hope that the honourable high court accepts this petition as PIL

Sandeep Verma, Kolkata
We should not forget that during these difficult circumstances one should take care of our national security instead of making a commercial product. I completely agree with the above stated points and would request the Govt. of India to consider this matter for the safety and security of our nation and the general innocent public as well.

\"I totally agree.. i think just like every sctor of indian comunity, media has also lost basic humanity and emotions towards the nation. Like every one else media is just another source of business to earn money n not to provide service and truth to the people..its not anymore to help the citizens or provide them wid appropiate news..I think freedom to press needs to e carefully reviewed and der need to be certain limitations to which it can be exploited\"

I am very sure the live telecast of the operation has done more harm than help.especially in the Nariman house operation.The casualities would have been the same but the time taken for the entire operation would have been much less if the terrorists had no clues.Besides , it doesnt benifit any indian in the city of terror or far away by seeing it live! news channels may just flash info about the happenings in words without the visuals till the operation is over.

The statements of the captured terrorist are being publicised. This is outraging, must be stopped at once.

Barkha Dutt and others were giving live commentary of the whole episode and helping the terrorists. The Television media has become highly irresponsible and doesn\'t know what to be given for live telecast and what not. They could have always recorded for their footage and used it later, when the whole episode was over.

Divya, Mumbai
Amol Suley, Mumbai
Our Media is in the Biz of CREATING news rather than reporting news. The more sensational the better. People coming out after 36+ Hrs inside Taj were being asked \"how are you feeling? how was it inside?\" They were passing judgement about why 200 NSG folks are needed? Why is it taking this long to flush out a few terrorists? Amazingly Idiotic People.

Krishna Jammalamadaka, Hyderabad
Rakesh S D, Mumbai, Kalyan
Vishal thanks for giving a platform for people like me who want to do something for our country. I wish if you could file another PIL restranining these politicians for commenting like they are commenting now. Also media should not give positions of security forces in the time of crises. I fully support you in this campaign.

Anand, Bangalore
This is an excellent thought. Media just seems provoke emotions in people to get as angry as they can. But the need of the hour is to take swift, pragmatic actions and not be emotional. Also I hate it when they say \'exclusive footage only with xx channel\'. How does it matter who broadcasts it first, when people are dying ?

Exploitation by channels for TRPs is a shameful thing.A convenient scene to channel is shown hundreds of times as breaking news while an inconvenient response is blacked out soon reflecting manipulative nature of anchors/channels.They think they are supreme and can corner anyone to submission in the name of media freedom.A code of conduct and accountability is necessary and to be strictly followed.

Harish K Bansal, Chandigarh
First of all, I salute our heroes who are the policeman, army, NSG commandos and others who foughts the terrorists without caring for their lives. Secondly heartly condolances for the victoms of this attack though no amount of these can alliviate the pain of the near and dear ones of the victoms. The important thing is how can india prevent such attacks in the future. There are things like strengthening our intelligence, security infrastructure etc etc. Apart from this, people have started the blame game right now. The media is most active in this without searching for its own consiciousness. It is a time that all of us need of introspect. It is a failure of our great country that attacks continue to happen and all of us need to take its responsibility. Unless we commit that we will become good citizens, will not indulge in corruption, will not tolerate injustice to ourselves and others, participate in the political process actively, till then these incidents will keep on happening and we will keep on debating.

I totally agree that media coverage will give adverse affect to such operation. Live coverage should be restricted during such operations

They should not have reported the whole thing live. The news feed should at least have been deferred by 3-4 hours. Only information officially released by the army and police should have been shown by the media.

I agree and support this cause.

Cameli Sutradhar, Mumbai
I fully support your cause Vishal. The TRP hungry news channels should be taken to task.

Manish Nadkarni, Mumbai
I fully agree with Vishal. He has made a valid point. The media is taking everything for granted as nobody questions them. They get away with showing things which can be avoided to be shown or things which are in a bad taste and out of context. There has to be a law to curb the news that media shows.

Ranjan Kumar, bangalore
\"Terrorism demands publicity of Terror\" I dont blame indian media in particular because they too are Indians but the live coverage was sad.Why cant We have the coverage for just official purpose & to facilitate investigation and not for public view as live coverage? Indeed the minute to minute news update had advantage the terrorist.On the other hand Critical News like terrorism is always huge proliferation of changing situation that at times make the previous stated news as fake therefore the process of news development should be carefully choosen.(Pakistaan present stand substantiates this)

Vivek Upman, Mumbai
There is not a word of disagreement from what has been pointed out by Vishal. We, all Indians, are shocked, angered and frustrated to see our city being held to ransom by a few terrorists who obviously had their plan well authored. As if seeing our blood splattered live on TV for the whole world to see was not enough, some disgusting news channels clearly evaded the request of armed forces and continued with their live telecast. There seems to be no code of conduct and absolutely no mechanism in place to draw a line for our media, which at times in the name of news can really hurt us. Well the damage has already been done by some of the rogue news channels who allowed the footage of Nariman house operations and the infamous phone call from the terrorist. Its time we do a rethink ......long overdue infact. It clearly seems that the terrorist are getting tired themselves of the routine bomb blast and our political inaction and our creatively causing mayhem and collateral damage to our nation which is bleeding incessantly. May this petition be the 1st of many in which the citizens of this great country resolve to collectively ask our leaders and take accountability and punitive action.

Vijayita Panjwani, Mumbai
And please ask them to stop repeating the scenario and images everyday. We are already facing psychogical trauma knowing this has happened but we do not want to keep seeing it again and again. we want to know what will happen now. And please Ban INDIA TV. i think their style of reporting is vile and nefarious and is very disturbing.

Kunal Jain, Chennai
Hi Vishal, I was discussing the same thing with my friends while live telecast of those attacks. And wanted someone to come up against this very strongly. And I am happy that people like u have come up for this. With this I would also Like to say to people with strong personalities come up against such other issues and have their bit and that may transpire or inspire whole country. Would hope for such other issues being raised in future by the people like you. From the media point of view they could have telecasted it once the fight was completed.

We dont have news channels actually, they are all entertainment groups who dont miss an opportunity to sensationalise the even the most serious issues. Channels like India Tv should be banned with immediate effect. The saddest part is that even the better ones such as NDTV and Times Now are now taking the same awful route for their TRP success.

gaurav bhargava, jaipur
The govt. was wanting to show all that on TV to show to the nation what they were doing, obviously after letting them enter had to show how responsible the govt. is.... bullshit. She should have shown the whole operation afterwards to the nation not \'live\' as shown on all the channels.

I agree with the petition filed by Vishal. Media, in order to increase its TRP,has failed miserably in discharging its duty by showing live coverage of the entire operation against terrorists at Taj, Oberoi and Nariman House which put our NSG commandoes, Marcos and other security forces engaged there at a disadvantage and high risk. Thanks & regards Ritesh Narayan

Rainy Baruah, New Delhi
I was quite disturbed by the fact that such an unfortunate incident had been turned into a dramatic reality show by the news channels. The media should have behaved more responsibly. There was a blatant display of one-upmanship between the different channels. A private channel had gone to the extent of broadcasting the phone call from the terrorist, without deliberating on the repurcussions this might have on the already fragile secular fabric of the country. I hope this initiative acts as a deterrent for the media and make them aware that there are far more important concerns rather than TRPs.

Devendra Deshmukh, New Panvel, Navi Mumbai
Vishal, I totally support this initiative. The channels were just intereted in TRP ratings as none of them bother to highlight that the first 56 people died as CST. I would also like to spread a imp message to all.. \"Did you know that there is a system in our constitution, as per the 1969 act, in section \"49-O\" that a person can go to the polling booth, confirm his identity, get his finger marked and convey the presiding election officer that he doesn\'t want to vote anyone! Yes such a feature is available, but obviously these seemingly notorious leaders have never disclosed it. This is called \"49-O\". Why should you go and say \"I VOTE NOBODY\"... because, in a ward, if a candidate wins, say by 123 votes, and that particular ward has received \"49-O\" votes more than 123, then that polling will be cancelled and will have to be re-polled. Not only that, but the candidature of the contestants will be removed and they cannot contest the re-polling, since people had already expressed their decision on them. This would bring fear into parties and hence look for genuine candidates for their parties for election. This would change the way, of our whole political system... it is seemingly surprising why the election commission has not revealed such a feature to the public.... Please spread this news to as many as you know... Seems to be a wonderful weapon against corrupt parties in India... show your power, expressing your desire not to vote for anybody, is even more powerful than voting... so don\'t miss your chance. So either vote, or vote not to vote (vote 49-O) and pass this info on... \"Please forward this mail to as many as possible, so that we, the people of India , can really use this power to save our nation\". Use your voting right for a better INDIA.

In fact all such incidences are planned to fulfill only one aim:Media Focus. And as a citizen far away from the happening... we have actually no immidiate right to know about the incident. Hence the right answer may be to ban all media coverage of all terror activities. Terror activity lives with the fodder supplied by Media.Remember , the three days,Media made us believe the black ness of reality....but we should realise that more than 100 crore Indians were still doing many productive works at those hours...ploughing,manufacturing,researching,child raising...and the Madia focused reality was not the real reality. Could any body realise that at the same hours, same number of people lost their lives due to flood? Sorry, this is no news for us because Media did not say so !

Please ensure you see this through to it\'s logical end. If TV channels cannot enforce self-censorship in a bid to boost TRP\'s and outdo one another,then once again it\'s the judiciary we have to look to for a solution. I\'m not advocating state censorship here,but if they cannot set thier housein order by themselves then might as well the courts do it for them.

Amit Bhandar, Bangalore
Pushkal Juneja, Delhi
Ever since CNN did a live telecast of first Iraq war, sensationalization has picked up in such coverages. Its a dangerous trend. We should educate our journalists friends that behind this dramatic coverage, there are real lives at stake, of our loved ones inside as well as our NSG/police personnel. If we cannot help them, lets not do anything which hurts their chances of coming out alive. Further, we should channelize our anger and energies in a positive manner and direct them towards problem solving, (like this petition) rather than blaming politicians or another country. We should probe within, where we ourselves have gone wrong.

I totally support the cause. It was very stupid of all the news channels to point their cameras towards the hiding NSG men and showing it on live TV. And the masala this guys add to every news, cos they want TRP for their channels, whatever is the cause or however sad the event is they want TRP\'s rating. They even storm the houses of people who are crying over the death od their near-dear ones & point camera on the faces...How idiotic they can get. I think our media should be more responsible. I am with you Vishal.

Ashish Chaskar, Chennai
Yes, I support Vishal. Media is becoming more and more irritating now a days. They should not be thinking that they are ruling in this country. It is very dangerous if controls of democracy are surrendered to the media. We should have strict guideline for media and news channels. I do not understand who need 24 hours news channels? Restrict their timing to 3 hrs in the morning and 3 hours in the evening. Because they want to fill up 24 hours, they take any small incident and show it as a breaking news.It\'s so irritating and useless. Also, I think the increase in the divide in the society is mostly because of media. (It is already there, media is exploiting it to increase their TRP.) They will show small incident for 24 hours contuously and make sure that every tom dick and harry knows what has happened. So, everyone in this country has opinion on every damn thing happening in this country. Spreading information and making people aware is good thing. But there should be basic holy motive that should be attached to it. \"business\" can not be the only reason of media and news channels. Thanks!

Besides being used by terrorists, there are other concerns with news channels: 1. In the name of condemning vulgarity in movies, they show clips of vulgar songs / scenes. Examples are many – Rakhi-Mikka, BigBoss, Malika Sherawat etc etc 2. They are corrupting the minds and scare the innocent citizens by showing news like – World is coming to end, God has come to earth, Aliens are here to kill, Aliens can peep into your windows etc etc. 3. Selectively telecast the news - extort money and then stop covering that news e.g. Nithari massacre, Arushi Murder, Parliament Note-for-Vote scam. There are many more issues…. All leading to conclusion that instead of media becoming armor to fight for the people, they are playing a role to confuse the people…. And in that way are even bigger criminals that politicians… (for that matter investigation should be carried out to verify how many news channels are owned by politicians).

Vanshika Sharma, Mumbai
Its high time that we bring an end to the amateur/sensational journalism in India which is at its peak right now and the only way this can happen is through the law which prohibits and punishes the act of irresponsibility by the media. So lets all support this cause and hope that this initiative is successful.

Media has made mess of it. We felt that media is supporting the terrorists, giving each and every bit of information to the terrorists. How our forces are moving, from where they are moving, what they are planing. Each information is available to terrorists. Because of Media coverage the terrorists could get our plan and they fought for so long. Other how will they know from where, and how our forces are moving. Media should be banned in such situations. I fully agree with You Mr Vishal Dadlani.

Media should not be allowed to cover security operations live creating hype about the panic situation

Vivekananda Patil, Pune
Rajeev Mane, Mumbai
Media has to show restraint and refrain from this type of reporting voluntarily . Freedom of expression does not mean that they have the right to endanger lives for their TRP purposes or carry on their hidden agenda of taking sides. I was shocked to see media also reporting about some SMS\'s being floated by mischivous people about Raj Thackrey and Marathi population saying that all the NSG commandos were north or south indians. Doesnt this smack of regionalism. They have conviniently not reported about the first 15 martyr policemen who were marathis and laid down their lives for the city of Mumbai not worrying whether the affected people were maharshtrians or others.

Shailendra Mathur, Pune
Indian media seems to be in a race to outdo politicians in perpetrating farcical drama on this nation. They sensationalise events, show concocted news, blow things out of proportion and ragularly make false or half true claims. But this time they have surpassed even their own abysmally low standards. Its time we put a brake on the likes of India TV, CNN IBN, NDTV and their ilk.

Sumit Rangdal, Pune

The Indian media, especially news channels, have chosen to emulate the worst news channels the West has to offer. Preferring to sensationalize every newsbite, and advertise themselves on the basis of that sensationalism. Their endless ranting jars the senses, forcing some of us to in fact prefer no-news to tv-news. I much preferred the days of doordarshan, when the news was broadcasted at a particular time, rather than have these chattering monkeys clutter my brain with 24 hours of endlessly repeated footage and druggest newscasters. I find them repulsive, and in my opinion they need to be told what journalism is actually supposed to be. What they\'re doing right now can never qualify as news.

Shanu Nair, New Delhi
I am fully agree with you.\"I hope Govt & Court do intervene\" on this. It should be STOPPED

I\'m glad you\'re taking this issue on. I was stunned at the way some of the news channels especially ones like \"India TV\" and \"Aaj Tak\" were telecasting everything that should have remained confidential. It was like watching a bad spoof movie. Reporters actually vied with each other to enter Nariman House and show footage of the dead Jewish hostages. Don\'t these guys have a conscience? Any sense of right or wrong? No sense of privacy?

Shailendar.S, Chennai

On one side we have our politicians, who just cannot stop beating their own drum. They continue to live lavish lives totally ignorant WILLFULLY of what happens to the people who vote them into power. On the other hand we have the media which cannot stop advertising issues in a very irresponsible manner. Asking a hostage how he or she feels once freed from the hostage situation is really PATHETIC!!! How would a reporter feel if he / she was in the same situation? Let us be HUMAN in our approach. The media should stop bringing celebrities on debates (what can they talk of life of a common man, instead bring the common man himself who can tell his tale of DAILY STRUGGLES and this should be telecasted LIVE. It all sums up to a very simple but true aspect of our nature \" Each to his Own\". All the INDIA TV’s, CNN IBN’s, STAR NEWS, etc should realize their responsibility towards the nation.

I agree with your views & also feel shoul atleast do this before the \"breaking news\" breaks our entire morality & security.

Aditi Bhattacharya, San Francisco CA, US
I firmly support this petition. It was ll for TRPs under the guise of nationalism. And there was so much rumor mongering happening it was hard to separate the truth from the rumors. I thought the Indian electronic media had had enough time to grow up in, but clearly they are still working along the lines of tabloid news (hic) magazines!!

Let this start a movement for all of Indians,for the people, of the people, by the people of India to force all politicians, judiciary, businesses, media, and, the rich people (who are often corrupt to their bones), to become accountable & responsible of their deeds, to the Indian society & Public, and must be punishable if not.

Every news channel is talking of accountability of the Politicians. They are the first decision makers answerable.No Doubt. But we people should make the Media accountable for all the\" FIRST\" \"LIVE\" \"EXCLUSIVE\" from them and its effects which is as bad as losing the best Cops that we had. Media has a role o play. The focus 75% of their time on what happended glamourising it with how they were first to reach and how politicians were wrong and 25% of time on what should be done in future. It should be the other way round. Media have a much much bigger role to play to get actions into place.

I too feel the same. Just for TRPs and Exclusive News, the media is going to any extent and giving the breaking \"news\". Remember the movie \"A Wednesday\"?

Pankaj Goenka, Bangalore
As ordinary citizens, we were able to realise this fact as soon as we saw this happen on the TV channels and I\'m surprised how the so called enlightened journalists from all the TV channels failed to do so. I saw this happen on so many channels that even after repeated requests from the security forces, they kept showing live coverages, the only difference seen was that at the end of giving complete details of the NSG\'s movements, a phrase was added that they can\'t say more for security reasons.

The media was indirectly responsible for the death of Hemant Karkare. By providing constant covereage of his position, they have indirectlt aided the terror camp in achieving their goals. I also want to know who the hell does Barkha BUTT think she is. She is more concerend about being the VOICE of INDIA.. rather than helping our troops achieve their goals. The same goes for ALL other media channels who are simply concerend about raising their TRPs. No doubt they gave us great coverage but there needs to be a code of conduct and discipline when it comes to such operations.

Thanks, Vishal for this great Initiative. The Media is also responsible for the lives of the great officer and the innocent people who have lost there lives. Media should not focus on only marketing there channels in such crisis situations. As responsible citizens it is their duty to help the nation and stop live telecasts. I am not sure how this restriction can be put in action. We need a answer to this from the honourable chief justice. Thanks..

DILIP, Bangalore
Hi Vishal, It’s a very good decision to stop media for covering each and every issue of such a terror plot. The terrorist are seeking help from non other than media. Television Media is available to each and every one nowadays. This media coverage of terror attack for all 64 hours can/would have created panic and horrified each and every individual. Recently there are article in TOI Newspapers that 8 years old child had made a hoax call to airport saying that there was bomb planted in there. When enquired about this issue, the child answered that he had watched some footage in the TV, so he also even planned to do so. So we can see that, how media is corrupting Young minds. I don’t want to blame any specific media, but want to restrict media from showing such footages. Honorable President APJ Abdul kalam had said in his speech that now a day, its common to see on front page daily such terror news from where we start our day. Why media don’t give news about some great award winners in science and technology or why they don’t print autobiography of great leader or scientist or soldiers, who have contributed their life to India in their respective fields. I proudly want to be part of this social issue, which can help each and every individual of India Please join hands to make our country safe Thank you DILIP MOT

We have to pass on a secure and safe country to our children to live. So, instead of blaming the politicians , armed forces, police , commandos, let us all come together and help them to remove this terror from our society and set an example for other people.

Hey Vishal, I do agree upon ur views.But because of the media we could get the exact situation though many times it was exasggerated.I agree that they should have showed us the recorded events rather than the live screening.Some media crew and no public was to be allowed at the terror sites,many people were also on the road to witness the commando operations, they should have been removed from there.

Hi, I think the Indian Media needs to show more maturity. Once the Operation at TAJ was over and Mr.J.K.Dutt,DG,NSG came over to speak to the press there was lot of jostling and pushing to get the best possible position. I mean what is this.He has to plead with the media to stop creating a noise,as he was there to answer there questions. Also while showing the LIVE coverage of the Operations at TAJ,OBEROI and Nariman house,I think the media has gone into overdrive.Were they not sensible enough to know that by showing the operation in \"detail\",they might be helping the terrorists.ONLY when the media was requested NOT to give the details of the operation they obliged. I mean this is common sense,but I think that every channel was trying to score over the other at the cost of giving information to terrorists. It is therefore my request to the media,\"Please use some common sense and not go into overdrive to score over the other competitors,in such Emergency situatiuons\" Thanks Sumit Watal

TV Channel should not only think about their TRP , They should think about the social responsibility they have other than just raising the TRP.

Can\'t agree to you more. I would go on to say that the media\'s role even after the conclusion of this tragedy was totally unethical and unprofessional.

Anshu Ahuja, mumbai
Chandrabhan, Chicago
Sir, It is outrageous and offshoot of reality TV that we are witnessing. I am certain that this has put our troops in harms way. I don\'t see the maturity in media to now show all this. The way they have shown dead bodies and blood again and again, It has taken away the seriousness and dignity of the dead. Media must be restrained and a line must be drawn in such cases of national importance while they are welcome to expose corruption in purchase of bullet proof vests, they should not have aired the news of Hemant Karkare\'s death so early. It demoralised the already underpaid, undertrained and under armed police forces. Must be stopped.

I wish to point out one particular moment shortly after the last terrorist was killed when Barkha was trying to get as clsoe to the Taj wall inspite of a Jawan telling her not to but she brushed him aside with the usual arrogance of a journalist and she kept on calling her camera man to join. All this to sho the exclusive of showing tied curtains and sheets hanging from windows. I think it was highly irresponsible of such a high profile anchor and channel.

Rohit Kaul, Bangalore
I am a born and brought up Bombayite/Mumbaikar now in Bangalore since 6 yrs. My heart bleeds to see what happened in Mumbai. I only hope the momentum for change continues and we completely boycott the political system and as responsinble citizens take the battle in our hands. The current System/beaurecracy/politicians suck and its high time we bring about a change. I completely support the PIL and hope the TV channels and PRESS behave in a more matured manner while filing sensative reports. I was also a bit dissapointed by the low coverage to the poor people who died at CST. Is it that only the upper class should get due coverage when hit? I also wonder if we would have got the same coverage if a poor / middle class area would have been hit.

The Media is too curious about how the Attackers are killing the people.By broadcasting the war between Police and Terrorists indirectly they helped the Attackers.

Times Now showed that responsible journalism IS possible under the tense circumstances and the temptation to top the TRP war can be overcome. Maybe the other channels would take responsibilty for their inability to be sensitive to the security needs as well be humane while questioning the survivors and their families. I\'d like to also point out that had we NOT allowed the media circuses that we had been a part of in the recent past (think Arushi\'s murder and the cheap hungama around it), had we the viwers had done a little more than just changing channels and switching off our TVs, there is a chance that these people would have learnt something about the audience they are catering to.

I fully endorse the demand raised. This kind of irresponsible media reporting can never be classified as \"freedom of press\". Appropriate authorities need to frame certain code of conduct as the media hubs don\'t ever seem to own the moral responsibility of what can go wrong by their cheap way of gaining publicity and blind race of capturing those few flashy bytes.

I congratualate you for this initiative. I found it disturbing when a major news channel asked its viewers to SMS how much will be the number of people dead when this operation concludes. We have to change quite a few laws in this country and people and media should also be more responsible when such terror activity is happening.

Piyush Joshi, Gurgaon
I completely agree with Vishal, Whatever our security forces did to secure our amchi Mumbai was the supreme sacrifice but due to the irresponsible behavior of our so called MEDIA(Star News, News 24, Aaj Tak-Sabse Tej etc etc..) terrorist know each and every move of our security personnels. Actually Media were not helping Security forces, they were helping our enemies to tell our position or our strategies. They were just creating panic and fear. I think time has come to take strict action against this TRP rated Electronic News Channels and I believe Government/ Hon\'ble Court should take toughen action against the media.

Ravi Khandelwal, Jodhpur (Rajasthan)
There should be some structure which can prevent this, make accountable for these kind of activities, rather than showing fake moral responsibility. Media should show their pro-activeness in exposing this leaders, cleaning this dirty politics and providing country man real picture and become a medium of action against any injustice and wrong practices.

In my opinion what news channels were doing was not independence of media but they were doing buisness. I hope we will not allow people earning money on the blood of soldiers howsoever influential news channel it may be. Strangely these are the media houses who are instigating people against politicians but they themselves will sit always in the inner courtyard of these same politicians for their own monitary gains.

vikash sonika, Chennai
I congratulate Vishal for this cause. Its high time that media behaves responsibly. Hunger for TRPs has made our media join a rat-race. Umpteen occassions could be cited to demonstrate how irresponsible some of our news channel have become; be it in the name of sting operation, sansani, wardaat etc. etc. They have not only brodcasted classified information, but also has Exaggerated some of the issues & jumping into unconfirmed conclusuions, which they shamelessly refute later on. There should definitely be a strict code of conduct. \"Freedom of press\" should not entail the irresponsible conduct.

Rahil Arora, Bangalore
Indian media needs to wake up and get out of the shitty rat race.

Nikhil SK, bangalore
I support this petition. I hold the media responisible to some extent for prolonging the ordeal innocent citizens of India faced. Allowing the counter-terrosist forces to work incognito is a given. I still cannot believe the foolishness of the media in broadcasting live, the rescue operations, inspite of knowing that the terrorists had access to phones, if not their own, the hostages\'. Sensitive information about the rescue operation could be easily relayed to them. In their hunger for higher TRPs and sensationalism quotient even responisble journalists have gone overboard. This is unacceptable. Hope that, many more citizens voice their opinion and ensure that some action is taken, atleat this time. Wake up, INDIA, Wake up!!!!

We could have regular bulletin updates given out by a pre-designated authority which the channels could share to meet the people\'s need to know what is happening. This would take care of rumours , alarms etc being aired. This would also respect the privacy of the victims - I was disgusted to see reporters thrusting mikes at the hostages emerging from the building.

Smruthi, New York
Though I live out of India, I strongly feel and empathize with the pain endured by all the civilians in Mumbai. Its time that we Indians wake up and learn to face reality. These terrorists were equipped with high technology. I wouldnt be surprized if they had internet access as well. Blocking TV coverage and disabling internet access was needed as the first step. Media should not have been allowed anywhere close to a kilometer range. More than being helpful, I think that the media was largely responsible in creating unnecessary havoc by broadcasting rumors.

Manav Parekh, Mumbai
It was completely mindless. They kept saying that these three places were warzones. Then why not treat them like it? There are two major rules in a war. a). DO NOT UNDERESTIMATE THE ENEMY which the media did. For 2 days, they kept flash a headline saying NSG Moves in for FINAL ASSAULT! WTF!... and ... b). NEVER GIVE OUT YOUR VANTAGE POINT! The Nariman House operation ... they must have known everything... right from how many men are gonna come in from the roof, what weapons they are carrying and the newsreader also coolly gave out the kind of combat formation that the commandos were most likely to use.

Sandeep K.Puthal, New Delhi
I agree with Vishal 100%. The channels were giving out each & every details which was foolhardy.Like they did in the Arushi murder case when they trampled on each & every evidence; here they handed over all details to the terrorists.Hope our our judiciary intervenes.

I agree with you Vishal and appreciate your efforts to file the petition

Rhea Jacob, Trivandrum
These are very valid points, I fully support this initiative.It is true I did watch the coverage as did possibly every other Indian and I applaud the journalists who covered the action braving stray or intended bullets but the minute by minute reporting of which armed unit has taken up position where and which floors are being santised etc must have defintely been detrimental to the overall operation. The media needs to be more responsible . Freedom of the press is all very well, but with limits.

Although, it has its good points (the mobilisation of public anger being one), its high time that the media self-introspects and doesn\'t fall in the chasm of megalomania!!!!

Paramjeet, new delhi
On many occasions while watching the live coverage it made me n my wife very angry as to why we are giving away the strategy, positions and the mind set of our saviours. This would certainly be seen by the terrorists themselves and their mentors and then theor plan of action could be altered to cause more harm to the hostages and the forces involved in the operation. These thoughts did certainly cross the minds of the news channels as they started showing the footages on a delayed note but they did show and they were in competition to do so. I felt very helpless and disgusted cause this could have waited so as not to reveal the plan of action of the forces engaged in rescuing the people. There needed to be a blackout so that the the terrorists could not have got any help during their nasty operation. We should have had faith in our forces.

I am agreeing with Vishal\'s decision on Media. Media was indirectly help to terrorists. So stop the live casting when these type of incidents are going on.

Gunjan Shah, Mumbai
I totally agree with the views of Vishal and others who have commented here. It is high time that we concentrate on the safety of the people during such a crisis rather than boosting the TRPs and stating that we reported this first! Also apart from minute by minute details of the commandos and police force and the \"live\" call by the terrorist to the media, what was the need for the news channels to give away the fact that the terrorists have lost a mobile phone and are getting calls from another country? Did they not alert even the caller from the other country by doing this when they could have silently pretended to talk to the caller and get some more information out of him??? Good luck Mumbaikars and to all the supporters of this petition, I hope it MAKES A DIFFERENCE!!!

Media was irresponsible in the overall coverage of Mumbai attacks & lives of the security forces battling to neutralize terrorists; were put in danger.

Siddharth Ahuja, Seattle
I was appalled to see a video on Rediff.com that was a TV news clip where someone claiming to be a terrorist was being interviewed. It was simply the media giving the terrorists a vehicle for propaganda. These suicidal terrorists know they are going to die - the only satisfaction/consolation for them is the propaganda before they die. We should never EVER give them a chance to spread their vicious propaganda.

Nitin Prakash, Bangalore
This is a very comendable initiative. I myself am very distraught at the callous behaviour by the media, which these days has resorted to \'infotainmentmight\'. This might well have cost a few lives and delayed the success of the mission by hours. I would like to add that the video posts on the internet should also be controlled as they can be directly transferred using cell phones.

I am with you as I also believe that media should not cause any harm to anybody. Spreading news is great but at the cost of somebody\'s life is not acceptable.

UDAYNATH KRISHNAN, Mumbai
Udaynath - Mumbai I fully agree with Vishal. I admit i too did watch the transmission continously. Even an ordinary citizen like me could visualise how this live relay would be helping the terrorist. We need to stop this stupid media people from restraining themselves in such cases involving national security.

there needs to be tighter control over media & the public that came to watch the proceedings as if some entertainment program was on. i was ashamed of my countries media when thy started claiming the very next day, that they were the first one to bring the first news/ pictures of the tragedy. police could have taken stricter measures, atleast restricted media & general public and quarantined a bigger area than it did. i would not be surprised to know that some of the terrorists could manage to escape easily in the whole of hoop-halla spread around.

Natasha Chauhan, Delhi
I too was horrified at the extent of the TV coverage at the concerned locations. Our soldiers and police went in without a word, because it was their duty to protect us. Is it not our duty then to see that we do not jeopardise their lives by announcing their locations to one and all? We have already been told that the terrorists had been receiving all information telecast by the TV channels on their laptops and blackberries. Thank you Vishal Dadlani, for giving a voice to this. You can count on my full support to see that these operations are cordoned off from the TV and press so as not to put the lives of our security forces in danger.

Television coverage of NSG operation should not have happened. Forbidding it might have helped our commandos. Law must be enforced to prevent it the next time. Also Law should be made to prevent news channels from airing rumours like CST and marine lines station firing. Which never happened.

Jagadish, Hyderabad
I too feel the same. Just for TRPs and Exclusive News, the media is going to any extent and giving the breaking \"news\".

Suneet Bhutta, Mumbai
Mr. Dadlani, I thank you for taking a stand on this media issue. The media in their quest for TRP\'s has destroyed the essence of news reporting. I was aghast at the news reporting by some of the esteemed journalists in our country namely Barkha Dutt and Rajdeep sardesai. I have lost complete respect for them as journalists after their reporting on the massacre in Mumbai. The media thinks it is a parallel authority on governance, corruption and national security. While it has done a commendable job exposing some corrupt politicians and covering some sensitive cultural and regional issues, their coverage of the mumbai massacre was plain disgusting to say the least.

Shekhar, Bangalore
I was exactly saying the same thing while watching the coverage. Thanks for taking the initiative. We are with you. It is just a matter of common sense that anyone would understand how sensitive and life threatening information was aired live. Even if the power was cut off, there might be a viewer sitting across the border updating these moles over the sat phone. Quash all the non sense logics. Media was very irresponsible in the whole episode.

Ragish Raghuvaran, Pune.
Agree with vishal and we have to beef up this petition...

The news channels are behaving irresponsibly and inhumanely at times

Every thing against the media is absolutely fine Vishal, but apart from these there should also be a request to the people of india that every induvidual or a corporate should always furnish their entire building layout to the army or the police, so that in future if there is a similiar attack on any of the hotels or building, the plan of attack should always be ready. Be it in Taj or Trident, both where we lost lots of our commandos, the mayhem was because our brave soldiers were not aware of the layout whereas the terrorists had a foolproof plan.

Vaibhav Bakshi, PUNE
I support this campaign! It is really irresponsible of the media to carry out the footage live like the way happened. I strongly protest against this.

Karan, Mumbai

This is an extraordinary initiative Vishal. I am a senior citizen and have been witness to numerous atrocities committed by terrorists on innocent people over the years. The coverage of the Kargil war was bad in my opinion.But this one really takes the cake.I was shocked,dismayed and anguished both by what I saw and heard on TV.I can’t believe how much of a damage these TV channels may have made on the psyche of young individuals with their sensationalist coverage. Vishal you wouldn’t believe this!My son tried to guide others who posted messages on rediff.com about this blog because the link mentioned was not opening.Only after he posted the message on how to get here,others were able to submit their petitions.But the message posted bymy son was deleted 3 times by rediff.com and he has been barred from writing till 10:30PM tomorrow.Infact there is even a a message on that blog on rediff from Mr.Ram thanking my son for guiding him on how to submit a msg. here. Vishal if you have read this could you please pass on your email id to me at s.suryaprakasam@gmail.com.We cannot afford the media,print or TV,to derail your great plan.Please cooperate. Thanks and all the best.

Hi Vishal, I am with you. Today\'s biggest threat is communication. I believe that not only news media also mobile or any wired or wireless coverage should be jammed first in respected areas of attack. Even when our CM pass through any road, They have jammer van with them.

Sridhar Reddy E, Hyderabad
The media should not be allowed anywhere near the site of terror operations, while it is going on. They should be given only controlled information by army spokespersons.

sunilkumar, Bangalore
Dear Vishal, i flly agree with you & this would have helped terrorist know the position & may be this was the reason that this operation took so long. Media should act responsible beofer telecasting anything of this sort.

Yes the media has no decency, no morals whatsoever, its all about TRPs and sponsorship. To get the maximum profits even it it means putting lives of those people at risk who are risking their lives for their country men. It was wrong on the part of the media to cover the operation live as it had given an advantage to the terrorists who were in touch with their counterparts / accomplices (maybe even locals) to get an update on the position and status of the commandos. Media should be restrained immediately and a rule book drawn up to prevent such humongous error in future.

The irresponsible behaviour of so-called journalists like Barkha Dutt needs to be regulated, since self-regulation does not happen.

Any Media is a two-edge sharp sword. However, going by the mumbai episode, our E-media looks very very IMMATURE. We look upto them to bring sensibleness in the society. But the E-media itself is not sensible. I just pray that the media be sensible in reporting & we all come together to fight the evils of the society together, but properly.

I completely support this petition. These are the same questions that were in my and my friends mind while watching TV. Its high time that there is some control on media during crisis times who otherwise would do anything to get their TRP\'s. I am grateful to Vishal for taking the lead and filing a petition.

Sagar Mathur, Chennai
TRP is not more important than a nation\'s and its citizens\' security. As sensible and aware citizens of India, we will do whatever it takes, legally, to ensure reponsible behaviour from the electronic media and stop them from jeopardising our nation\'s safety for their business interests.

Vikash, Chennai

I support this initiative whole-heartedly.Atleast this should give some sanity to the media and they realise how immorally they are respopnsible in having such an adverse effect.

Syed Noor, Mumbai
Dear Vishal, You are doing a great job. I think there should not be any live coverage of operations. TV channels can shoot that operations and air them after the operation is over. Hope you succeed in your goal.

Abhishekh Shukla, Singapore
This is a nice initiative by an Indian and i totally aggree and support this petition.If the politicians cant do it because they are hellbent for votes we the people can.

The news channels simply want to raise their TRP, but they tried to show the people what was giong on, it is ok until it does not affect the security personals lives.

Mahesh, Shimla
I fully agree that thouhg the media was doing its job but the live coverage may jeopardise the entire rescue/assault operation and lead to unnecessary loss of lives of the men who are leading from the front. Such continuous coverage also creates tension among people of diverse communities living and can be used an excuse by anti-social elements to foment more trouble. I doubt operations in the past like Operation bluestar etc would have been possibel under similar media coverage. I fully endorse the initiative taken by you and believe me the majority of Indians also believe in your cause though they not log on to your site to express their solidarity.

Vasant Patil, Pune
Dear Vishal, I completely agree with your views. First of all the journalists are always under impression that they know everything about this world and they have supreme rights to cover anything. When these news channels make a big news even if cat is stuck on the tree, do you think they will spare these terror attacks. I request I&B ministry and judiciary to impose strict code of conduct so as to not hype the facts and glorify terrorists or local goons.

Ila, Mumbai

I appreciate the intiative taken by Mr. Vishal. There is lot more changes need do in rules and regulations regarding brodcasting by news channels. Our news channel are so called \"MASALA Channel\"

Sainath Yeshagol, Bangalore
\"Even I strongly condemn whatever was done by the media. It is not at all acceptable whatever might be the reason they give to prove themselves.

It was extremely unethical, also partly because govt. had no group in place/at the venue which has contingency action handling capacity. Hence the reporting ran amok, with every reporter carrying out reporting to suit their program\'s selfish requirements.

Deepak Sethi, Delhi
It is true that some of our Valiant ATS officers died only because of such live inputs from the NEWS channels to the terrorists and I hv read somewhere that the terrorists had Blackberry phones and they were watching all the telecast themselves live.

Great idea, please take this as forward as possible, we all are with you..

I was most agitated when most of the channels while covering Nariman house operation divulged details like 5 commandos from top are entering the building,X no. from adjacent building to left and so on.Rise up people its not a movie trailor or an Airshow by Suryakiran. At the same time there was least amount of bloodshed shown,an improvement from last time(train blasts).

Akshay Bansal, Pune
I really condemn this attack on humanity. Before we expect anything from outside world, we need to first tune up our own system and the way we work. I strongly feel that by having a code of conduct in place (like the one being signed) will help in eliminating the help that the terrorists are getting by media.

Ronak Shah, Mumbai
Can we really trust on the current structure? Also I entirely agree on all the points that you have listed out. Media should understand that they should not misuse their rights or else they equal criminals like terrorists, leaders who have the information but no action was taken. Vishal I too have a rage in my heart and want to do something so whenever any support needed please do consider me. Thanks a lot. You are doing a great work.

Hiranyamai, Dellhi
Sunil Kumar, Jharkhand
I had in my mind that time only when these TV channels were showing themselves as DETECTIVES telecasting the TOP SECRETS. The police department is also responsible for allowing these buggers to suit the scene. Thanks for taking initiatives, if required do it on hard paper and teach them a lesson never to forget.

Sanjay Agarwal, Nagpur
Dear Vishal, I thank you very much for taking up this cause. There are many politicians & of course media hungry, media savvy people who always want to be there to be aired always to gain their own purpose & not for any social cause. I full endorse your views to take the matter to the judiciary who is capable to draw a line somewhere.

Seema Suresh, Mumbai
The amount of money we waste on the security of our politicians should be utilised to improve the security of our policemen, so that un future we don\'t have to cry over our \"Brave Soldiers\". Whenever there is a politician\'s visit in Mumbai we see our policemen stop all the traffic for hours (in which may be there is some patient who requires immediate medical attention etc)BUT what have the policemen got in return a \"BULLET PROOF JACKET\" which is also not safe and has not been tested also. Our GREAT POLITICIANS must have had share in passing such cheap quality of jackets. THEN WHY ARE WE BUSY PROTECTING THEM WHY R WE PAYING HUGE AMOUNT AS TAXES WHICH INDIRECTLY GOES TO THE POLITICIANS WELFARE RATHER THAN THE CITIZEN OF MUMBAI.

Maitreyee, Pune

Please give them strict punishment for the language they used during the coverage, they showed entire world with positions taken by NSG Commandos during the operations, which may be used by militants think tanks to guide militants against commandos. I condemn such coverages of live military/security operations done by electronic media. Electronic media should refrain themselves from doing this. On top of that media should realize that terrorists had satellite phones for communication with their thinktanks back home. How can electronic media be such blatantly irresponsible.

Although broadcasters were showing many scenes repeatedly as even they were also frustrated after say 36 hrs, i.e Friday morning 9 am. i think so. But they must have been asked by their bosses not to leave the spot. I am not favoring channels here, in fact because it was them due to which we were seeing the massacre ( v cant expect to see it on govt. news channels) and hence each and every person in India is saying ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. We should do something and all that stuff. But yes, we should have some control on it, these thought also came to my mind, bcoz due to live teelcast, and terrorist having cell /satellite phone , they might have got the directions from someone. So I fully agree with Vishal D.

Vishal Malpani, Chennai
I think that we have to really take up the action against this politicals they are one who can do anything for winning there Votes.

rahul wani, Mumbai
Excellent initiative. but please add few things.. 1.Detailed independant investigations on Death of Hemant Karkare,Ashok Kamte, Vijay Salaskar.till date no single channel or newspare could get even the locaiton where theyir bodies were lying, and the car in which all of them were shot dead by so called terrorists. even the Car in which they are reported to have met with death is also not shown which should have been bullet ridden.I feel some political angle to the story behind these things. also their post mortem reports should be made public. 2. we also need to investigate the involvement of Local support in these terrorists attacks. Nobody even many of the Taj tourists/guests could not know the locaito of their CCTV rooms,and places where CCTV and spy cameras are installed. their fotages must be scrutinized and then made public for verification. these terrorists were moving in these buildings with such an ease that they must have some known resource to guide in the buildings. 3. last but not the least who gave them the details of nariman House and also the speed boats to enter the Mumbai coast line locally? also need to investigated.

Rohin Kumar Y, Noida
Not just the TV channels but also online web-update content...Since internet is easily available to mobile devices than TV news.

TV news channels in India have gone berserk. Reporting has been downgraded to shrilling, shouting and over the top rhetoric. The nadir was reached during recent Mumbai terror attack coverage. Since TV channels are not able to slef-regulate them while reporting such a sensitive event, someone else has to rap them on knuckles. And please someone , just ban India TV for ever or cut thier supply of cheap hindi novels from where they borrow thier headlines. Also most of TV journalists need seroious training on journalistic ethics

Every action has a wide audience. If the audience includes the perperators of the crime, you have given them national/international coverage for free. You will find mis-guided youth finding this a way to define their prescence. The worst is we expose the approach of our own troops to the terrorists and criminals. Knowledge is power. Denying knowledge to the terrorist makes him disoriented and confused. The element of surprise will be with the states troopers.

Rajagopal Venugopal, Bangalore
instead of live feed, media can record the events and air them once the operation is completely over

Roshni, Bombay
Even if the cable or electricity was switched off in these places, the mastermind or any of their colleagues anywhere in the world wathcing the broadcast, who they were in touch with via phones, could have given this information back to them. Airing operational details of the commando operation and airing locations of trapped hostages would most definitely have resulted in more deaths.

Prasad Pujari, Cleveland, USA

Neetha Mahadevan, MUMBAI
Well, I do agree but to a certain extent. I work for a business news channel and we covered it extensively too but did not carry any visuals at all after a point. And talking of calling terrorists and guests, I am definite the channel might be faking it for TRPs because the terrorists was not sitting there answering calls. How did they get through that man and the guests...how can they talk at a time when their life is still in danger unless they are out of the house. Think about it. Some channels can go to extent and cook up stories.

ankur rohatgi, Delhi
total agreement with the topic.. Just as it was shown in the recent movie called \"a Wednesday\" where the depicted common man used the media resources to his STRENGTHS, this can also be done by any of the real terrorists, they r in fact much smarter than our movie directors.. therefore, there arises a strong need for self censorship or governemnt regulation.

Amit Zaroo, Noida
It was pathetic. Infact till the whole operation is over there should be a black out on the news details, which might be helpful to the opponent. The NSG/Army/Police should at such times be given censorship authority. No matter who or what the reputation of the journalist, everyone is involved in the damage done.

Subramani, Bangalore
Dear Vishal, I am very happy that you have taken up this noble cause. I too was very disturbed to see certain things which I felt the media was just trying to sell the story. A few second coverage was repeatedly beamed and some were even reporting rumours before confirming just to be the first reporter. Hope in future these kind of issues are dealt more seriously and sensitively. Regards Subbu

Media (news channels) are important as we also need to be aware of what\'s going on or else lack of information may lead to unnecessary rumours & panic among the citizens but then they (media) should also exercise restraint. The strategy followed by our commandos or Army or Police should not be aired LIVE DURING any army or anti-terrorist operation. The same can be made public once the operation is over.

I completely agree with this movement. The media has to show some restraint.

Chaitanya Musham, USA
I agree with Vishal, the news channels should not cover it live as it would reveal vital info on the operations and help the bad guys in changing their plans.

Vishnu B Singh, Thane
Dear Vishal, Some one should start this and you have done this....let carry out this movement further and i know the sinking feeling we all are feeling right now would do something constructive. One thing is worth mentioning here that while we are doing this to make media sensitive to mational security issues, we need to take into account the role of the citizen too. We had all seen people crowding the sites of action and that made the operation more difficult. We as citizens no doubt have to be caring and curious about the well being of the people there but at teh same time we should think in the perspective that our flooding there have hampered teh operation one way or the other. One thing that the judiciary should take to make media more sensitive is that they should get a feed only through the government in case where national security is concerned. This incident has brought out the ugly face of media who were more into the duty of increasing their TRP. How can an indian channel air the villified views of the terrorists. They have got what they wanted to achieve \"COVERAGE\" and our media is surely working HAND IN HAND with these goons.

Sandeep Garg, Hyderabad
I dont want to have information at the cost of lives. These news channels are nuisance these days. They dont get their facts right, they push news onto our face. This should be stopped

Hazel Saxena, Mumbai
I am with you Vishal . Media should be more responsible.

tejashree kadam, Mumbai
I agree

Vinaykumar, Mumbai
I do agree that news channels (TV & Radio) and news papers should be restricted to normal reporting. Otherwise todays reporting is only speculative and baseless and they are repeatedly showing live killings of people making one maniac and unrest. We hv the right to live peacefully and we can achieve only if Govt or court interfere and bann these news channles from airing sensitive issues, terror strikes, riots, murder or suicides, even normal fights. With their false reporting and daily speculative updates they are indirectly misguiding Police/authority and thus delaying or ending the cases. They should immediatley stopped from such reportings. Even they shows terrorists bio datas which clearly mentions their dareness and chillingness to kill people. This also wl help them in recruiting fresh enthusiastic boys who wants to be adventoures and not cared abot their future. Terrorists wants more market of their attacks and achievments which our media persons are providing with out any national pride. God can only save us from these poiticians and media maniacs. Tks for Mr.Vishal to give me platform to express my feelings. and if allowed I am ready to express my opinion before any higher authority who can help us. Jai Hind

M K Keswani, New Delhi
I endorse this petition fully. I want to share not only electronic media were being irresponsible but stupid too. When one of the guest was rescued they were asking him questions like where was he, the guest replied that he had locked himself in the room the moment he heard the first shot. The next question asked was, how many terrorist are inside the hotel!!! Also one channel proudly BREAKING THE NEWS went to telcast that body of leader of the gang has been found, which turned out to be body of owner of fishing boat that was hijacked by terrorist!

PARESH PATEL, SURAT
well i am completedly agree with Mr. vishal. there must me code of conduct which can stop the media to air all the the things like helicopters came, found cell phone from terorist. the culprits and the their head must be watching this live at their location and instruct the terorista as per the our army, NSG or police move. there must be one command from military ,, also the politican also must be stopped to visit there ... the media can give all the details after the operation over,,,at least it would surely help somehow to our commandos.

syed abdul razak, Hyderabad, India
The media should act responsibly and Not invoke something like of another world war which is being sensed somewhere round the corner. The politicians and the Army officials of INDIA know what to do and what not to do and things should be maintained through a proper channel through proper steps. Both the indian and pakistan media should stop the Blame game and lets the officials do their work.

Kulveer Singh, Jaipur
One instance which directly might have impacted the commando operations was in the Nariman House Operation, wherein, if it were not for the direct telecasts, the commandos could have attacked through the windows of the house with the help of suspended ropes, but could not!

Amitabh Shrama, Bangalore
I absolutely agree with above views, the proportion this race for TRPs by various channels has been taken.We certainly expect a more matured and responsible TV journalism.

Dear Sir, I read reporters have annoyed Mr. Arun Jadhav, wounded by four bullets in attack. (http://www.rediff.com/news/2008/dec/02mumterror-after-bullets-media-terrorises-cop.htm) Such incidents suggest us that terror doesn’t come always with guns but mic and camera as well. Man dukhi hai to kya baith jaun Royun, dukh ka jaap karoon? Ek nuksaan woh kar gaye hein Duja main aapne aap karooon? Nahin abhi bahut kaam hai mujhe! Haadsa ho gaya hai mere shehar mein Mere apno ke saath, main lut gaya hun Ek khabar banoon aur virlaap karoon? Maans hokar vehshi sa paap karoon? Nahin abhi bahut kaam hai mujhe! Gharonde jo toot gaye hein Phir se banaane honge Dil jo khaufzada hein zindgi se Phir se manaane honge Tumhe fursat hai kissi per ilzaam dharo Dhup seko, rally mein apna naam karo Mujhe bakhsho!

We most of the time compare ourselves with US & UK whenever terrorist activities happens. There almost every one are responsible, professional and disciplined but here it is the exactly opposite. So airing such live telecasts will effect the security personnel and blow the anger of people out of proportions which may lead to internal disturbances.Thanks Vishal, you stand up to be called a matured and responsible celebrity of India unlike others.

Ravinder Nath Chanana, Chennai-600073
Its not \'high time\' but well past the \'high time\' that some restraint has to be brought upon the media for its irresponsible ways of functioning in the name of \'freedom\' which it much abuses.

Sanjana, Delhi
the news channels should realise their responsibility and act accordingly.

Datta Prasad, Bangalore
Sorab Dalal, Mumbai

Munjal Almoula, Mumbai
apart from the live feed that was available to all - the channels should even be sensitive to rumours that were doing the rounds on account of their \"break news\". the reporting was extremely irresponsible in the race to garner eye balls for their channels

Appreaciate your efforts Vishal. the very first minute i saw the news, i had same concerns what you had shown in your petetion. Nothing much to do, i just kept myself glued to the TV and prayed for those Hostages and brave men who fought against the terrorists. Media should act more responsible than what they did now (not to mention, worrying least about TRP\'s). Not only Media, POlitcians and every Indian should act with a bit of Intelligence and more of common sense.

Sunny, Mumbai
Dinesh Rasal,
I totally agree with Mr. Vishal our media has become TRP hungry medium rather than a medium to help OR educate people. I think its high time now we have suffered all our life now we should stand and fight against it. Lets not become a \"DOOR MAT\" where every Politican/ Terrorist rubs themselves and walk away.

I am an NRI living in Saudi Arabia, thses thoughts first dawned to me when CNN and BBC defered their telecast, cicting security concerns (both of which is the sole news channels one can view here free to air). Thses two foreign media gaints had concerns on wether their footage would help the terrorist, while our own media, especially TIMES NOW saw pride in themselves in showing uncut, undefferd live footage. This Kind mindless News sensationalism sholud crumbed down and censored NOT our films. Thank you Vishal for providing this outlet.

SIMON LEWIS, MUMBAI
Special law to be impliment on news channels.

Sanjiv Shah, Ahmedabad
Besides this, the jingoism that most channels are promoting is distressing. Flaming passions rather than promoting compassion is disgusting. As much as the politicians, I hope we as a society, are able to look at ourselves first, and our institutions that mediate between us and the state, if any change has to happen.

Arun Kumar Yadav, Mumbai
Many News channels braodcast news which are meaningless and am sure they like our politicians today beleive that they can get away with any thing.This is not the first and only case of their irresponsible bradcast. Most of their news are unverified and meaningless (remember..the dunitya ki tabahi.... and such news). In this case they had gone too forward and now is the time to remind them of their moral duties. Lets all be united for such a cause. Arun

its good to see that this terrible act has had one positive otucome and that is awakened everyone. the immediate death of the 3 heroes must have been very discouraging and demoalising to the men on the field trying to save others risking their lives.also the second to second update was not required for all of us sitting at home in front of the t.v. at the cost of the safety and security of the nation.the terrorists did not provide us with their plan of action. when the whole nation supports a cause even one loophole may put the efforts of others in vain.

Yes,I feel media has to be very careful in passing information. Although they have done good job in giving information to people without which we would not have known the gravity of the situation. Also they risked there life too. But not at the cost of security of Nation. What is the need to invite various people for their views and opinion? What different does it any way make.It is only for TRP.

It was so stupid to show live pictures of comander operations , bcoz the same picture were seen by the people of the militant groups sitting in there countries and then they were guiding these people who had attached mumbai , thats the main reason why it took so long to control the situation as terrorist were aware of each and ever step taken by NSG commandos , this is very irresponsible behaviour of the TV channels claim that they risk there life and show us the true and latest news ... this is mere foolishness

Please save our nation by censoring sensitive information which may help terror to grow.

Premkumar, chennai
First of all, Salute to all of our heroes. While on one side the media did show up things which could help the terrorist to do a strong attack, on the other side we should understand that this same event is watched by kids and youngsters, which could cause certain amount of mental change (in negative sense) to them. This is really dangerous for the country and the media should ensure that they broadcast certain things and certain things not.

Dhurandhar Roy, Bangalore
Great initiative. Not only live telecast, certain pictures / videos should never be shown in TV or published in Newspaper.

S Dasgupta, Bangalore
While the media did a good job of covering the incidents in Mumbai, they were highly irresponsible. They put the lives of the security personnel, the hostages and themselves in peril by their utter lack of discipline. They seem to be more interested in the TRPs and more often than not seem to forget the larger picture.

Anand, Bangalore
Some of the news channel did show some restraint on the directives of the government and armed forces. Appreciate that gesture from them in the larger interest of the cleanup operations. But some channels went overboard in airing the operations live, probably spoon feeding sensitive information to the extremists. Indian media has to learn from the mistakes of western media in this matter. Media is powerful, it can make or break a system. It has to be used in true spirit of democracy and not get too much carried away sensationaling sensitive news.

Rusi Gandhi, Mumbai
I fully agree with the views of vishal as It is in the intrest of my country and my soldiers. The electronic media are in the haste to sell their channels quoting as we are the first ones to broadcast this live telecast. But in this they forget their moral responsiblity. Hats of for a beginning.

Indian media needs to change a lot. I think reporters with little experience and wisdom constantly hyper inflate the events with yelling voice. Also speculative content + futile debates on implausible \'what if\'s\' + seeking non-value adding opinions from the high society + mouthing platitudes + conducting petty debates.

Sunny Devidas Deore, Mumbai
The News channels were so hungry for the fame that they even slept on the roads in front of the TAJ. When the govt has ordered the citizens to stay in doors and do not gather to prepare some target spots for the terrorists, these foolish media people gathered in huge crowds right in front of the target spots. And a handful amount of Security people had to work on holding them away from the spots.

Shilpa, bombay
B H Chaudhuri, KOLKATA
Sometimes, it appeared - from the queries from others - that a cricket match was being aired live on the TV... only they were asking for the latest toll of death/injured instead of runs/wickets!!! THIS HAS TO BE STOPPED...we have enough in the name of Freedom of Press!!! Do they have to show each & everything to common man? Can\'t they share their findings only with the Security agencies .. Do they not trust the Security agencies or they feel their contibutions would not be acknowledged later?

Riddhi, Kolkata
I acknowledge the fact that the media nurtures the right to information policy. However, I also undestand that the same media brings news and information to millions of anxious people who spent sleepless nights thinking about their near and dear ones trapped in this terrible attack in Mumbai.However, there is a greater concern and responsibility to ensure that in this process none of the precious lives are put to more danger just because we want to practise right to information. The media should realize that they have immense power to influence and they should be humble enough to perform their act with the highest responsibility. Afterall the lives of the NSG, Marcos and Army commandos were at stake;they were fighting to free Mumbai from those ruthless perpetrators. Please pay some respect to their bravado and sacrifice by not helping the terrorists sitting outside and watching and monitoring every bit of news and subsequently transmitting the same to those holed up indisde.

Salman Khan Afridi, Mumbai
Most of these channels should not be called as NEWS channels, they are like sky shopping channels shouting on top of their voice, sensationalising and repeating the same lines again & again as if they were selling a product. None of them have their facts verified giving different number of people dead or injured. Is there a possibilty to ban certain channels which gives false news and trying to boast their channel.

Aditya Mishra, New Delhi
It is amazing that a seasoned journalist like Ms. Barkha Dutt herself was a party to such henous crime. For the sake of breaking news, in one instance she kep insisting that the Police is asking the media to stay away from the back lanes of the Taj (once the operation was over), but was herself standing there and produly reporting that they are the only ones who have managed to get so close, and now are forced to move out.. whats the point of being a senior journalist seeking mature recognition, if you cannot restrain yourself from the greed of crossing the line.. shameful!

Vishnu Shettigar, Mumbai
Terrorist are confident that the Indian government is not capable to take any aggressive action against them. Indian government is totally useless. Indian politicians only need votebanks in these country & not India. So we should be prepared to face more such frequent terror attacks on our country.

Namrata,
Safety of the Armed Forces also becomes a priority, if they are riaking their lives to protect ours. I wholeheartedly support this cause.

Sunny, Bengaluru
I support this cause. The media should be more responsible.They should stop shouting \'Exclusive news only in our Channel\' and stop commercialising the disasters

Mukesh Verma , Delhi
Hi All I do agree with it. We need news and not sensation. These days media is more focusing on creating sensation in the country rather then providing / sharing knowledge via news. I was surprised to see that when all our soldiers are preparing for the war against the terrorist these people are showing live coverages of it. They are discussing on the plan and other issue. Which will only going to benefit the terrorists not us? International coverage – this is what these terrorists want and directly or indirectly we provide them what all they need during the recent Mumbai terror episode. And this is not the first incident; our so called responsible media has always behaved in an irresponsible manner in all incidents whether it is MNS - North Indian conflict or any other pervious blasts. They always sensationalized it and then after 2-3 days fooossss. We should have a code of conduct for all these media persons. Thanks Vishal for raising and standing against such a noble cause. Mukesh

Jay, Ahmedabad
I support this endevour. Media shud hv some restrain & self accountability. It was like a wave of Negative energy though it was a fact. Any spread of Negative energy does not help in any way but to enhance Negativity further.. We were in to dark clouds of Dense Negativity those days by Media.

Karna Shah, Mumbai
I fully agree to the cause of this petition. In the age when Information is power, this power may fall in the hands of the wrong doers. So the Media needs to assume a more responsible role and not just the media but the Telecommunication Service Providers also need to be aware and responsible in managing their services during a crisis situation. Today as we all know that even a 10 year old child know how to operate computers, mobiles and surf the internet, so wont these terrorist know how to use it? Everyone needs to wake up and be aware of the effects of these technologies, both positive and negative.

Rakesh, Hyderabad
I vehemently agree with this view. Its indeed a pity that no one took charge of the scene and ordered these obvious measures!

I was watching and listening where the terrorist were online with channel and was clearly saying that what they did is right and repeatedly saying that our Muslims are being tortured by Hindus and now they are just paying back.It is was frustating because the think here in infront I was listening that HIndus are enemies of Muslims and Muslims are been tortured. I just dont understand that how can some terrortis are justifying themselves. What impact will it make on the children or poor muslims who have nothing to do with this act are been dragged into this bloody conspiracy and we are just watching. I think channels should come out with dear muslims in India have blamed and this is a kind circle there fixing both the dear muslims and indian in India. Vishal, I would like to some more questions and suggestions considering this endless war and negitivity. Let me know if can contact further.

Aditya Gogineni, Hyderabad
It is true even though we would like to see the action as it unfolds and what is happening, we should not be putting the security forces at risk. That is the only body in our country which does it duties properly. Please do not risk their lives. We should make it a point to be our duty from next time onwards to vote for good politicans and make our country more peaceful in the future and hope the media concentrate on telling poeple that the actual problem is that. Since we as educated people don\'t even go and vote and latter we blame the politicans saying that they have not done their duty which includes the media. But how many of us have asked the question to ourselves \" Whether we have done our part on selecting the good politicians\". Since if that problem is taken care of the media to educate the people how important elections are since it just round the corner. I think in the near future the media wont be getting a chance to show these type of incidents live in our country again. Since there won\'t be any more such incidents.-- Jai Hind.

I fully support this cause. It was disgusting and disturbing to watch the news channels, even the so-called \'elite\' ones display every confidential information and repeating that they were the \'first\' ones to do so. Did that matter so much in the moment of crisis? If there is anger against all politicians, then there is disgust against media channels.

Amit Mishra, Mumbai, India
It is very unfortunate that people try to make materialistic achievements even out of a national tragedy. The media is also entering into the same basket as the Politician, the only thing is it is premature now and if we do not take control of it now it will become a similar nuisance as politician as in today\'s state. I am in full agreement to the same. Nice Start Vishal. Hope you drag this to some point where we have some core results out of this ! All the Best !!!

All those people, who supported these terrorists in their attacks, should be prosecuted. Why Media houses, who have done the same thing publicly, be escaped from punishment.

The concept of \'only news\' channels has made many of us stop following news. The are even leaving the soaps on the tele behind in dramatizing everything. Its should be moderated. The media is not above the law.

The media has behaved irresponsibly and also insensitively by focusing only on the carnage at The Taj, Trident, Nariman House and Leopold\'s while totally ignoring the dead and injured at the other terror attacked sites CST and Cama Hospital. I am outraged at the whole attitude of one-upmanship displayed by the electronic media in claiming exclusivity in broadcasting strategies of the military operations. I am sure we do not want such insensitive people to influence public just to garner more eyeballs and ad revenues.

\"I think that govt should learn from the recent experience and definetly take some serious action to enforce some regulations on media (esp. News Channels) and show them their limits. During such crises, there should be some line of control for them unless things calm down. Also, at times we are bugged up with the same repetitve videos of terror which imbibes fear in ones mind; of .. loosing life, family and everything other thing available on planet. So if we want to stand together, fear stops us to take the approriate step at the right time; the same Fear which is imbibed by the media. CHANGE IS THE LAW OF LIFE\" Proud to be INDIAN.

I do agree on the mentioned above fact. Media should not be given more liberty which could cause hurdle in tackling highly sensitive issues. They should respect Security forces effort and life.

I totally agree with above issue. We need to ban live telecast of any operation perform by any Security team may be army or NSG etc.

when the terroist can use GPS and GPRS, they definitely would also seek help of live telecasts for informations, which is in a way leak.

Rajesh Deote, Yavatmal, Maharashtra
Live coverage of Govt. actions against terrorists activities should be banned.

Aryan, New Delhi
Vishal, I too felt like you when I watched the live telecast on TV. Obiously it was hampering the plans and stratergies of armed forces to take on the terrorists due to live feed of information passed by our media. One side there were terrorists and other side the media was feeding the info which was accessable by the terrorists and the armes forces had to handle both. I feel there should be a proper law in place to handle info systems in these kind of sensitive security situations. We are there with you for this cause to build a secure system.

I really appreciate your efforts. This is the need of the hour and we shall all come together to support this cause.

I support this movement. But this happens to be one of the culprit. Our whole system is currupt. Only a few handful of people follow their duty very well & it is due to this people that our country still survives. There is no doubt our country is called \"Tisari duniya\". This is because of this \"Sab chalta hai\" attitude. The main reason for all such things for our country is because that in time of adversity or immergency none of us know what to do at that exact time. The newschannels in order to cover the issue went so so mean that they don\'t know the common fact that there are TV\'s in hotels & started covering & showing live. Now take the case of Shivraj Patil. He gets more elongated than news medai & says in front of TV the number of commoandos that have come to join the operation. Same case is with all Indians when there comes calamities like flood, earthquakes etc. People just don\'t know what to do at such times. The simple plain reason is because we all have studied this in school but never experienced in practical. The govt. should carry programmes in which people should be trained what to do in time of any kind of emergency like terrorists attack, earthquake, flood etc. One of the other major reason for sufference of our country is lack of security issue. Take example of Taj & Oberoi. They both were warned in advance regarding being target on terrorists list. But none of them increased the security or neither of them care to check the security or alert them regarding the same. The one and only solution for all this kind of problems is that we Indians start to look beyond the \"Sab chalta hai\" attitude. If we want to progress then we must follow the rules & we must be mentally prepared for any kind of adverse situation. Instead of blaming our fate to the govt. people should come ahead & force the govt. for action.

Teh thought is right, the terrorist must ahve been watching the TV in the hotels and this is definetely a disadvantage to the forces taking positions in the attacked place.

It is time the media realized they are also Indians - the reporters, the cameramen, the editors, the program directors, everyone - and thoroughly ask themselves that while the politicians are anyway screwing the reputation of our city/state/country, do they want to do the same, live and in real time, to a much wider audience? Self censorship I agree is not the answer. It is time to set up laws - and ensure adequately trained, honest and dedicated resources (manual or automated) are in place to ENFORCE laws.

Sene, Delhi
I support this cause wholeheartedly!!

Satya V, Pune
Completely agree with Suneet and Mr Dadlani. Also they repeatedly showed the terrorists attacking video to constantly and psychological weaken the watching public instead of showing the valor of the army commandos as well as the police. They knew it would be broadcast internationally and wanted to show the brutal way with which it was done BUT over and over again that to a point it felt as if our country was weak and forces were not doing anything. Media also reported that there was another blast in CST but then quickly changed it by claiming it was a rumor. What a reporting rat race. Without even confirming the facts they report and the whole world reads it. They have no clue how horrible an impression they make.

We all like to be kept informed but not at the cost of losing our Nations Hero\'s. Thus i sign this petition with the hope that all the news channels are forced to become more responsible and sensitive.

Pradeep Mehta, SIIB,Pune
I support Vishal\'s cause and agree that the media should excercise some restrain while covering such incidents.The I & B ministry needs to set stringent rules & regulations for media coverage for any such untoward acts in the future.At the same time,News channels & other media must realise the sensitivity of such issues and report judiously without keeping TRPs in mind.

We can all coem up with knee - jerk reactions like hanging, afzal, pre-preemptive strikes against known terrorist camps, re-aligning the NSG etc, (which should be done for sure) but the fact remains that we as citizens do a poor job of standing up against our inept leaders who cannot provide anything from fundamental right to law, food, education, health and protection from terrorists.

It is not the media that is to be blamed. It is quite natural that in a competitive environment, one often tries to put in too much. Let there be some regulations, certain directives that the media should follow at times of national crisis.

Vishal, I have been watching all the efforts and activities by our forces with great pain and disbelief, on the rediff even there was Vedeo made all of this which must have deffinitely given more tactical edge to all the pakis on and off the terror/killing spree!One of my Iranian colleagues tells me we are all with you we push pakis from one end and you do the same from your end push them to the sea for once and for all!The same way they came!

I totally agree with the comments on this site.I was agast to see how the news channels were trying to outdo each other for maximum viewership.They kept using phrases like\"this is our EXCLUSIVE report\" or \"We were the first ones to bring you this news\" etc.I feel that these news channels are no different from the politicians in trying to benifit from such very very sad incidents.

Karthik S, Hyderabad
I totally endorse the view by Mr. Vishal.

Kiran P. Kamath, Mumbai
I completely agree with your point. The broadcast I feel should have been a delayed broadcast by about 20-30 min. This would serve the purpose of one and all.

As always our government was sleeping and the TV channels are were awake.They were like the eyes of the terrorists.Every one should understand this point.

It is the responsibility of each and every citizen of the country to assist in whatever small way it may be the armed forces of our country during such grave circumstances, I feel by making note of this the media can help them in a really big way.

I agree with you Vishal ... Shameless media was taking pride saying \"We will not show live feed for safety and security reasons ... blah .. blah\" after showing it for hours live.

I would really thank that someone of us is awake not only for literal terrorist attack but also the attacks that the medis is playing on us day in and day out. To start with, I think this is the best way to teach media a lesson that everything would not be sold in market to the consumers.

Hi Vishal, i thank you taking up such a good initiative. You can also parallely focus on election issues as well since this is election period & most of them would not cast their vote. So we need to bring to their notice that by not voting, issues are not going to be resolved - but rather they can go to the booth - sign the paper & get the voting mark on finger & approach the booth center that they are not casting their vote as they don\'t find any worth candidate/ party. This way we are avoiding getting fake votes done, making use of rights & also getting it noticed to the govt. that there is something wrong which needs to be addressed on an urgent basis.

Ram Sharma, Indore
This is really ridiculous thing that media have done… They were directly guiding the terrorists what should they do next… Apart from all the nonsense media has done, everyone is saying that we have done our job in the favor the country.

There is not a word of disagreement from what has been pointed out by Vishal. We, all Indians, are shocked, angered and frustrated to see our city being held to ransom by a few terrorists who obviously had their plan well authored. As if seeing our blood splattered live on TV for the whole world to see was not enough, some disgusting news channels clearly evaded the request of armed forces and continued with their live telecast. There seems to be no code of conduct and absolutely no mechanism in place to draw a line for our media, which at times in the name of news can really hurt us. Well the damage has already been done by some of the rogue news channels who allowed the footage of Nariman house operations and the infamous phone call from the terrorist. Its time we do a rethink ......long overdue infact. It clearly seems that the terrorist are getting tired themselves of the routine bomb blast and our political inaction and our creatively causing mayhem and collateral damage to our nation which is bleeding incessantly. May this petition be the 1st of many in which the citizens of this great country resolve to collectively ask our leaders and take accountability and punitive action.

Our news channels are hungry for TRP\'s. The oft repeated cliche \"EXCLUSIVE COVERAGE\" channels should be reprimended for their insensitive and callous attitude. Moreover some magazines like India Today, Outlook and WEEK have increased their price to cash in on the MUMBAI ATTACKS. SHAME on the Indian Media.

Anshula Chaturvedi, Noida
The TV commentators who babbled on about the shards of glass at the Taj hotel where they always dined and partied and spent wonderful hours with the high and the mighty, were unable or unwilling to access the curtain of grief that shrouded the 180 odd faceless people who were also victims of the same bullets from similar guns. Not to mention the 370 wounded who did not even get a walk on role. If they had all drowned in a ferry collapse or a multiple bus crash it would have rated a one day also ran on the news. Ironically, for the majority of the dead, it still did. Boutique terrorism hit India’s rich and that was intolerable in its audacity. Not that the death of the rich and powerful is acceptable but the nexus between the divas of television (our one conduit of audio-visual brainwashing) and the upper crust of the victims had a certain ‘personal’ element that became tedious to the core. It almost reached the point of narcissistic self indulgence. A billion Indians were literally compelled to watch the interpretation of the most horrendous attack on their country through the prism of the page 3 people. Like AIDS, bird flu, disasters and other sundry diseases, terrorism must learn to confine itself to the backstreets and not dispatch its stench into our air conditioned sinuses. That was an affront. Rather than give us the rage of a dead major’s father dismissing a chief minister from his door (a fleeting ten seconds) and discuss that ramification in the greater context we were given hours of the iconic status of burning wood and mortar. Rather than share with us the horror of a hotel manager’s family burning to death we were given hours of broken windows and gasps of dismay because this was the spot of the years of exclusive café au lait soirees. Rather than give us the anguish to further firm national resolve by lauding the return of a crore of rupees given by Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi to a heroic police officer’s widow we were given drivel on the television about the delightful eateries and the plates on the floor. Was all this not trivializing the attack on the country as much as worrying about some Ram Gopal Verma accompanying the former Maharashtra CM, Vilasrao Deshmukh to the Taj in the aftermath? Suddenly, the and the foot in mouth mumblings of the State Home Minister took centrestage and marginalized the top questions that should have been not only asked but never allowed to slip away from focus in these days. I’ll ask some of them for you. Why did the commandos not have thermal vision capabilities, infra red goggles and gas canisters? Besides, how come the Anti Terrorist Squad have such poor survival equipment that they were so easily mowed down. You can’t fight an AK 47 with a 9 mm pistol that is most likely to jam on you. Where does the money go for these purchases? What is the budget for equipment? The public must know. In 1962, India took on the Chinese with single bolt .303 rifles wearing tee shirts and canvas shoes in sub zero temperatures in Nathu La and Jalap La. We got thrashed. Has nothing changed? There is no doubt that India has the stuff. Yet, it never came into use the way it should have. Today, thermal imaging of hotspots inside a construction (where heat sources like human bodies can literally be seen shimmering in green and orange) are common in anti-terror warfare? I ask you. Why does India have to buy an AN 12 aircraft for the NSG? The country’s air force already has enough in its fleet? When the Indian president or PM flies on a trip three state of the art aircraft are kept out of the Air India fleet. And the airline schedule reworked. By the same token, in computer savvy India why did the facilities not have detailed maps of the hotel layout available to the commandos, a subject that never arose, what with TV indicating that the soldiers went in blind. You do not have to read spy novels to know that using fibre optics to see ‘inside’ walls is a global given. Why did we not use these techniques? How much of the alerts and warnings were actually top priority and who leaks material from RAW to the television including photos of crucial evidence like credit cards and munitions during an ongoing operation? Well into the third day the terrorist set up was given a minute to minute account of everything going on through TV channels including senior army, navy and police officials vying for the microphone with their detailed accounts of the occurrences. These senior officials conducted themselves with the same sort of mindless idiocy seen at cricket matches when the camera pans the public. Finally, piety stepped in and sanctimonious anchorpeople refrained from showing LIVE pictures of grenade launchers. Give us a break. They should have kept it on. The footage would have totally confused the terrorists. The 3 hour delay in getting fire engines to the Taj was an indictment of our public safety system. People died because of it. Yet, nobody is asking for a commission of inquiry into the medieval efficiency that seems to exist in the firefighting process. For shame, the worst video shot was begging the hose pipe to stop being a noodle and push the jet of water to the fifth floor. This, from the hi tech hub of the world. In New Delhi, the government made first day menacing gestures to the leads pointing to Pakistan and now, as I write this, it seems a dressing down of the Ambassador of that country and some window dressing in the form of some low level ISI fellow is all the gauze and band aid we are going to demand for this gaping wound. Today, people have the will to demand a change. A billion people is a lot of energy. But it will be sapped by the power of television and its uninformed, arbitrary and aggressive appetite for making the singers more important than the song. Television already runs our lives. Its fatal charm mesmerizes our decision makers. Now, it will decide the value of our deaths. As for the lipstick and powder, need one say any more?

Srikanth Shirodkar, Bangalore
I support the petition completely. The behavior of the Media during the Mumbai attacks were atrocious. Every action of the NSG commandos were laid out bare for the terrorists to watch and study. One particular period during when a truck of NSG were blocked on the road by a huge crowd of media people, with the commander beseeching fervently for them to clear the path on a microphone was pathetic. Since the media is not capable and/or willing to act responsibly, should Court should direct the Media accordingly and immediately.

Dhanya Viswanath, Bangalore
Hi... I agree with you on all points mentioned earlier. If the media would have behaved with some more responsibility and maturity, probably it would have been a lot simpler for our forces to take action. Also, several senior journalists who have been a part of incidents of such intensity before should be aware of the repercussions of their action and should have acted with care. We are blaming the politicians for their callousness and carelessness. But even the media should look at how their “breaking news” while increasing their TRP rate, could affect the lives of several people. This is not a time to take advantage of anything. For the sake of several lives at stake, we are fine with delayed news telecast or even the lack of it. We are asking for our country to be more secure. But it is not just in the hands of the politicians or our forces, but there are several other aspects which need to be addressed as well. Here’s to a better India, a safer India.

I fully agree with you Mr.Vishal. I was livid with the media on the was they were providing the details of operation, which was available to the whole world, including the Bosses of the Terrorists sitting across the border and could be giving them instruction accordingly. Moreover by relaying the teleconversation with the Terrorist, the media has only helped to propagate their reason and purpose of the evil act. The media was always biased, but now their act (whether deliberate or naive) has become anti-national.

Arpita Mitra, Mumbai
Vishal is right. Even when we were discussing at home, we had the same queries in mind. Arent the terrorists also getting to know about our strategies and locations. And what was that about giving \"footage\" to a terrorist ... someone who was part of creating such macabre massacre !!! Is it that media took terrorists to be unprepared fools!! I totally support Vishal\'s cause.

False news was given by the media that Nariman House mission is completed when it was not and so people gathered near the Nariman house which was then difficult for the police and commandos to control the crowd and complete there mission.These media as well as the politicians make full use of such situations for there publicity and fame.Media role is important but to a limit, to an extent.They can give all there news but show it on TV when ur sure about it and which will not affect the people in any manner.Media people was constantly behind the Hostages which was left after 7-8 hours for the news as what they felt and what they saw when they were inside.What the media wants to know?.They cant understand there feelings and worries? I am in full support to Vishal and will be against each and everything which would tamper the country in any manner.

Joydeep Ghosh, Mumbai
Couldn\'t have agreed more Vishal and I sincerely respect the concerns raised by you. Its high time that every Indian should contribute towards a safer India and media should definitely take cognizance of its responsibility towards the same and do the needful.

Media should never show such things live. It makes people to panic more than what the real situation is. Media can brodcast it after the whole operation is complete. Take all the facts and then show the real thing. On many channels I have observed that numbers were different. The news written on website of some channels was contradicting itself. I have lost faith in most of the news channel after watching them.

What media should do is, if they want they should shoot the actions but do not show it live on the television instead show that to the people only after all the actions are over... All the people should come together and support Vishal...

This is a good initiative! While it is sad and surprising that media organizations, composed of humans like us, need moral dictation or legal oversight for such sensitive situations, this kind of regulation is fast becoming a necessity given the over-enthusiastic media behavior.

Dramatising the reporting of unfortunate incidents like this is highly immatured, insensible and irresponsible act. Presenting the unfortunate deaths of the people on duty dramatically like introducing like a \'nautanki\' [specially the Hindi news Channels] is criminal offence. As this was not only once but again and again, thus it cannot be accident but intentional.

priyesh, Thane

I fully agree with you Vishal. Govt should make very strict rules for media coverage. In fact govt should strictly monitor the media coverage in case of such operations, riots, flood situations etc. Most of the time such coverages spreads wrong signals in the public. And if any media channels violate such rules then they should be very strictly penalized. Apart from that our ministers are equally responsible for such attacks who are more worried about their own security but completely ignore national security which should be their first preference after get elected. But sad to say I have not seen a single politician who got a strict punishment for his anti national / social activities.

Yes, I belive that media had gone overboard to cover the terror attacks just to get their TRP rating skyrocket. There is a fine line between responsible coverage and silliness and this time they clearly overstepped it. Their coverage may have provided the terrorists with what is going on outside. It was really shameful and disgusting to see the media persons running after hostages once they were freed and ask them stupid questions like \'How do you feel?\' , at a time when even the people sitting in their homes were distressed. It is time that the media houses do some introspection and think beyong viewership and TRPs. They should mend their ways.

The media did not act responsibly at a crisis sitaution like this. They were giving out too much information about the operations by the armed forces putting it into jeopardy. There should be strong censorship on the kind of information that is shown on the television when such sensitive operations are underway.

Ethical media reporting is a must! News Channels love showing gory images, getting \"insider information\" and create havoc by giving misrepresentation/wrong information to the public

Chau Matsa Thamoung, Guwahati
I support your views Mr. Vishal

Ashok S A, Bangalore
Additionally, the News channels coverage of the martyrs last rites are to be specially mentioned. No wonder the Police oficers and the Army commandoes fought a valiant battle and sacrificed their lives for the country and they deserved to be honoured and their fight should be known to people all over the world and for genretaions to come. I wonder when all news channels show the same things, why should there be scores of journalists in the homes of these heroes, pushing and jostling for their byte of the story when that time should have been very very personal to the families!! And they go to their homes and behave like excited school kids, seeing something for the first time. Isnt this the time when we should show our solidarity to the heroes and their immediate families by being with them in their hour of grief and sorrow!! Hundreds of media people go there and behave like excited school kids when the whole world is crumbling on the families of the deceased!! Though the coverage on TV was fantastic, with live coverage and all, using the same to promote the news channel is extremely bad and distasteful!!! The court should bring a restraint on the media people and the media themselves should remember we are human beings first and everything else later.

I accept what he is right.There was a news in papers that there may be blasts in kolkotta as headlines.I don\'t say people should not be warned.They can say people be alert all the time. Some security reports should not be revealed exactly because which may make the rivals attentive about this

Vaibhav, Mumbai
This is a very serious issue and am glad someone brought it up. While reminding the politicians of their moral duty, the media has completely forgotten its own. I am happy to be a part of this PIL, but i think the solution will be a \"market\" determined one and not a \"legal\" one. We the consumers have to take assertive action against any channel we think is profiteering from a national crisis. Which means we positively ensure none of us watch that channel till an apology comes through. We may not be a big group right now, but imagine if this grows, not only the real TRPs will drop, but the boycott should also get publicised so that the advertisers also notice. Not sure about the legal issues, but I know one thing, nothing can force me to watch a channel and if a large group of us decide not to and make ourselves public about it, media can ignore us at their own peril.

I agree, media is sensationalising every thing. They should know where to stop. They can show some clips and have debate with politicians. LIVE coverage is necessary, but not 24X7. Good debates were there with lot of intelliegnt people. Hope the government understands the setiments of people and they respond positively. This time CONGRESS politicians were talkless,Shame on them for pushing common man to terrorists so meekly. INDIAN lives are so cheap that no politician takes it seriously. This incident should open the eyes of every politician.......

Pratyush Pal, Mumbai

We should ban all the media people during such incidents, hope we should not have such incidents any more. Enough is Enough

Sneha Mehta, Pune
It is sad that we need to file petition to make media aware what are there responsibilities; will this help to make them really responsible rather than broad casting anythin to increase their TRP which actually results into helping our enemies.

Vivek Venkatesh, Dallas USA
Yes, I was wondering how the media could telecast all the current plans of the commandos and the ATS. Agreed, the media deserves to be lauded for their coverage informing the country about the current situation but the content has to be regulated. I agree with what is stated above.

pravin Manerker, bangalore
yes it was a shameful act to telecast every move of indian commando\'s. This petition will help to set up the law against those in future.

Rahul Shukla, Kanpur
I would not say the whole of electronic media was as irresponsible as mentioned. But it is very important issue as of now to lay down specific guidelines as to how electronic media is supposed to act in national crisis situations.Although there may already be such a guide line, but in context of these attacks these measures should be revised if already existing. At least it should be made sure that in such situations media gets to report only what has happened & not what authorities are planning to do, so that terror forces do not get intimidated regarding any action happenning against them.

These kind of live telecasts should be stopped which may cause a huge exposure to Like minded terrorist who may think of new alternatives.... Some of the channells are also available in terrorist country. Media always raise the eyebrows on the security and they are not following it. \" They have no right to preach unless thay follow it....!!\" News channels should have a security screening before they can relaease any kind of media to the public

Yes, he is right, the live information will inturn bounce back on us. So media, its a humble request not to telecast any Govt. actions against terrorists activities live in future which may releave the military secrets.

So for news reporters n channels gov sud impose some guidlines.

Yes, this behavious is not at all expected media. In fact, more of common people, children and young people are exposed to these kind of things in the TV, more atrocities will happen and it will make a big negative image in the future generation especially children. They will be spoiled and they\'ll resort to same kind of things since this will make a big impact on their young minds. Media should be limited just to informing the news.. not on glamourising, the whole episode.

Ashish , mumbai
reponsibility to the nation should guide the media in passing the information. a call has to be taken by the media only after considering all the possible implications of such information and not just to increase their TRPs.

MEDIA PERSONS HAVE SHOWN THE LIVE TELECAST OF ATTACK BY PUTTING THEIR LIVES IN RISK BUT THE WAY THIS HAS BEEN SHOWN IS NOT CORRECT. SOME RESTRICTIONS, CODE OF CONDUCT IS ESSENTIAL NOT FOR THIS ATTACK BUT OTHER SUCH TYPE OF TELECAST. ALSO WE NEED NEWS NOT SENSATION.

purab, Mumbai
I definitely agree with vishal. there needs to be certain guidelines, Media competition in giving sabse tej khabar, was responsible for all the panic city faced. It not only media but also tehre needs a PR education for our politicians. Eg.- R R Patil in an interview mentioning about the work NSG commandos will do, saying 200 commandos are inside TAJ, which was really stupid to leak that sort of information.

sachin, Phoenix,USA
Kunal Pawaskar, Mumbai
Showing what happened (post-facto) is still Ok I believe, but showing plans of our armed forces/police/paramilitary forces is uncalled for. The terrorists allegedly had satellite phones. Showing on TV that the NSG commandos have reached the 14th floor for example suddenly doesn\'t seem to smart right??

I Do not agree by this appeal and hence it is nacessary for me to say saomthing about: I support the Live telecast of anti terrorist operation. In the Indepandent INDIA, it is nacessary to preserve our \"right to speak\" . My openion in this regards is that, our security system should be of world class. They need not always critisize the circumstance. The Security should always think ahead of criminal. You can\'nt change the circumstance. You (Security)must and always plan Their work in this present situation. If some one gathering information of movement of security through Google earth, you cant blame google. So please dont waste your energy in this PIL and dont waste precious time of Honourable High Court, who is under termandous work load to finish, which ius more important.

Anand Punder, Noida
Dear Vishal Bhaiya, We are with you. Even for those 60 hours I was thinking about the media\'s role of providing important information to terrorists while showing live footage. Is Medias responsibility only to show the innocent people bleeding, dying while lying on the roads and crying for help? During September\'s blast in Delhi this year, I had seen live footage and recordings on TV. People were bleeding and were crying for help but I did not see any media person giving a helping hand to the injured and had tried to give them first aid and took them to the nearest hospital. Never in my entire life I have ever seen or heard such news where they have stopped someone from committing suicide publicly. They are the mere watchers and only cares for their TRPs. I do appreciate their role in some major sting operations but their duties and responsibilites towards mankind are higher than every citizen.

Veerendra, Hyderabad
Vibhav Agarwal, Mumbai
The innocent citizen of this country has been held hostages by corrupt politicians. We were slaves of British before 1947 and now are slaves of entire political class and their cronies who are highly selfish and looting this country on the pretext of democracy. Today, I feel totally let down by them. My patriotic esteem is all time low and I have no reason to feel myself as proud Indian as things stand today.

Pravin R. Vaje, Mumbai
I fully support you for what you have started, I think media should act responsibly in such situations they could have aired the footages once the operation was completed that would also have got them the TRP\'s required. New channels are the most powerful medium for a comman man through which they can express there views on the present situation of our country, like what they are unhappy with, what changes should be made etc., media should think about this instead of just thinking about their TRP\'s.

Ashwin Ayyappan, Mumbai
I am with this movement. There has to be some kind of control on the News Media. If anything is not done today, we may have to face dire consequences in the future. Didn\'t any of the News channels realize that the Masterminds of this attack must would be watching the live footage and making appropriate changes to their plans. TV journalism is just going overboard and out of control. These News channels will show anything in the name of NEWS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I would like to add some more thoughts on these \'foreign owned\' anti-national english TV channels. If you re wind and see how these TV channels have diabolically set the agenda( hidden ?)of public discourse/debate on the crucial issue of terrorism & national security by making a mockery of it and \'inventing\' \'hindu Terrorism\'.just re-winding in to the \'expert opinions\' of rajdeep sardesai, Bharka dutt, anrub goswami,sreenivasan and Headlines today would be enough to expose these people. Even now they are trying to deflect public scrutiny against the e- media by trying to portray people\'s nger against only politicians. they haven\'t aired the opinion of navy Chief who has blasted our media,citing the anti-national mindset of e -media during kargil war, and the recent sinking of the Thailand pirate ship with arms by our navy, so much so that the Pakistani media is now attacking the indian govt by relying on indian medias stance on earlier occasions. These TV channels should be banned or atleast regulated as is done by China.

Darshani, Mumbai
Yes, I feel media should be more caution, while dealing such things. One more thing i would like to share is that their was one journerlist of some news channel(which i would like to not mention), who claim that he was present with the NSG commandos at Taj Hotel and was guiding them as well as doing conversation with his media person outside Taj hotel and they were broadcasting the same. Which is i feel is fully wrong. I would like to tel such News Channels that please for your own benifit of TRP dont do such awful act.

Its really sad what the Media has done (yes the media are to blame for showing the event live and being the best informants to the terrorist).The terrorist ow a special thanks to the folks in the media OR are the part of the whole attack(It makes me wonder if they we paid by the terrorist). The news channels speak of the Indian sprit and stuff ….I Say where did all this go when they where more bothered about their TRP ratings then the lives of the Indian citizens and armed forces who where fighting blind and where more blinded by the live media coverage Hopefully the judicial system and politician take some action before thing get worse and India is run by the Media…

harpreet singh, Gurgaon
i fully agree, the same footage can be used to train for the next (hopefully not) attacks as they give graphic detail of every move of the commandoes, the coverage could have been responsible for the death Sabina by giving out the coordinates, who knows and all things above Its just too intrusive , there should be some general coverage without running into every nook and corner, and disclosing every minor mistake made which also gives out vital stats about prepardness or the lack of it emboldenning them Harpreet

Yogita Waikar, Mumbai
Thanks for a attempt of raising this issue.

sumesh, Mumbai
I completely agree. Media should not telecast the live military operations rather should not be allowed to do so. They were showing all the commandos & their locations that was very irresponsible journalism.

Vishal I congratulate for your effort and really appreciate this mission . Media has been caught doing irresponsibly acts and during such operations they have been a dangerous and callous. After whatever they spilled and spoiled the reporters were self congratulating themselves by sayinng\"NDTV, or aaJTAK OR India TV we are taking a role of resposible media and holding the information and feeds , not broadcasting them\" I wonder was the damage already done . May be many hostage must have been shot by panic after seeing the first hand pictures. Soem lives could have been saved!!

When the news channel were being blacked out 1 of the channel (Times Now commented that \"IT is pathetic to black out the news channels as we are showing whatever that is happening...how people are going get the news?\" these channels dosen\'t understand National responsibility and only worried about their TRP\'s. After their comment I have stopped watching this irresponsible channel.

Asad Hasan, Delhi
yes, you are right vishal and have a valid point, and during the operation I was also thinking that media is exposing the police and commando operation and to a some extent they were also interfering. this type of sensitive operation should not be telecast live and channnels should not be allowed to air everything they want.

Very True! Few of us ever realized that the media was the biggest weapon the terrorists had. How can you expect to catch someone after telling them how you are going to catch them. TOO BAD!

Nikhil.C.R., Thiruvananthapuram
I think you missed out the online blogging. Online bloggers, like in Twitter, were giving out lots of details and that too sometime much before the TV news channels. Can we do something about that too? I know our cyber law is not that good, but still if something can be done about it, it will be a good beginning. Its very nice to see people like you standing for a GOOD cause. Thanks.

Pankaj Ingle, Mumbai
Yes, the race among media to be first one to broadcast and being \"Exclusive\" need to put brake while reporting an event such as recent Mumbai terror attack. If media industry do not wish to have a code of conduct for themselves, lets we initiate and make them abide.

Shipra Rawat, Bangalore
Harsh dhawan, Chandigarh
I completely agree with Visahl, When i saw NSG commandos live landing on the Nariman House building, i was stunned, I was completely aware this could hamper the commando operation on nariman house. Altough this is exctiing for general public to watch live operation live on TV but this is not certainly exciting for a nation. In addition to this, i also listened to the audio clipping of terrorist talking to the TV channel on phone, Wat i noticed by hearing it that the terrorist was not interested in talking to the correspondent or answer his queries. He was just giving his message to the public that they can do anything and also he was mentioning that the riots gujrat and mumbai triggered this attacked which could further spark the riots against the minority community. I would like to thank vishal for taking this initiative. I also felt the same what vishal felt but i didn\'t have the courage to take some initiative against it. I know we will get some favourable output in this case by the Honourable high court, Thanks

I am with this petition. Senior journalists like Barkha Dutt disappointed with their eagerness to report irresponsibly. We can live with, maybe, the media constantly creating villains and heroes. But not with them jeopardizing lives. That\'s just not done.

Chaitanya Siriprolu, Hyderabad
News channels cannot enjoy freedom without responsibility. They have an exaggerated sense of self importance while they are nothing but a huge nuisance during times like these with all the sensationalism, bold headlines, breaking news every second, hysterical screaming etc. During the NSG operation, they seriously endangered the lives of the security men who were fighting the terrorists by beaming live pictures of the operation. A strict code of conduct is needed urgently. Erring news agencies must be dealt with very strongly. Media freedom is not greater than life, any day.

Prasanna R, Chennai
Karthik A Jayagovind, Bangalore
The excessive media coverage was deplorable on three counts: 1. It compromised the efficacy of the operation due to leakage of confidential news about police action to terrorists and their allied parties. 2. It was a case of distasteful commercial exploitation of a national tragedy. News channels piled up on each other to provide \"EXCLUSIVE\" news bytes and images of the tragedy. They converted a tragic event into a media circus for their commercial benefit. 3. The very purpose of committing such hideous terrorist acts is to catch attention of the world. The outrageous, excessive media coverage only furthers the terrorists\' agenda by showcasing their deeds 24x7, non-stop in a highly dramatic fashion.

Actually Our media is not playing media role , they are putting masala to news and creating useless sensation with no meaning. Our media should improve their standards. They can be a major intermediate to help country to counter terrorism. They shoot training camps of terrorist and interview them but inspite of giving information to military or govt, they show on channels to create business and which sometime effect people\'s security.

I am in support of this PIL. The media must show restraint in such sensitive situations. It was sickening to see Rajdeep Sardesai catch hold of a Japanese Chef and force hom to sleak after he came out of TAJ on 27th Morning. Strategic information regarding the operation and location of our soldiers was being given out on live TV. When will our nedia mature? Every Channel boasted of a \" first report \" with every update they got. The TV hosts were acting as intelligence strategists. They also had the courage to discuss what better the NSG or Police could have done. Soe courage that is? They should have been given guns and asked to go insdie the war zone and cover live. Maybe the smell of blood and burnt skin would have excited them? It surely was a sad day for Mumbai and India. Hope we change there is still hope and time.

Tanya Seth Soota, Singapore
There has to be accountability, sensitivity and professionalism in journalism. It is no longer acceptable for the Indian media to ever ask anyone in the face of any adversity \" How are you feeling?\". If we have had enough of our politicians then so have we of the new breed of Indian television journalists who only want to sensationalize \"Breaking News\" for the sake of TRP ratings. As for Ms. Barkha Dutt she has finally put her foot in her mouth!

These irresponsible channels should be severely reprimanded and fined for their callousness. They have no business to put the lives of our forces to risk just for their petty narrow minded profits, TRP ratings and the sort.Ban these channels at once and permanently. We can live without such garbage

I Agree. I was also concerned about the same thing. They were showing Sniper points, Commando positions etc. I also remember PATIL saying that they have disconnected all communications and TV and Electricity from the premises and they will not be informed about what is happening outside. In todays date when best of Technology is easily accessible to any man, how can someone be so sure that these measures are going to deter the terrorists! Someone might be watching TV from another location and reporting to them also, you never know! It was a big slap on PATIL\'s comment when they came to know the terrorists had Satellite Phones! So there! This is just one of the instances that really shocked me. All the best to this petition and HOPEFULLY this will be heard so that we can atleast take a step FORWARD.

Thank you for taking this up Vishal. I fully support this petition. The news channels were not just showed positions but there were red circles around each and every commando like an open invitation, see these are our commando positions, this is what we are thinking of, come attack them. We know they had satellite phones for God’s sake; they were continuously in communication with people outside. It is seriously idiotic. Hazar times they will say “exclusive, only on phalana channel”. What the hell. We never know we might have already suffered a huge loss. We might have lost 3 of our best officers who were unfortunately traveling in the same vehicle due to this irresponsible LIVE reporting. I don\'t understand why India needs 25-30 dedicated news channels (not counting regional news channels). Everyday there seems to be a new news channel. There are news channels where people read news like someone reads movie scripts, its sick and disgusting. It’s a constant rat race among all these channels. To show something LIVE has become a fad. But we can\'t put the safety of our security forces at risk for this stupid rat race. Media has to behave responsibly, if they can’t they have to be forced to do so.

Speechless of this horrific act, and needless to explain anything as these politicians will exageratte things, make bread and butter for them for quite a few times keeping next election in priority and then everything will calm down as time passes by. And yes, feel hurt when i see media acting this way. Today, i can say, I feel hurt when i see my citizens dying for the cost of innocense and ofcourse, feel SHAMEFUL to have brought up in a country whose authorities holders are just for the name sake and media only to increase their TRPs at whatever cost. Congrats TIMES NOW news channel for being the top one for their TRPs in this whole shameful episode. Leaders, SHAME ON YOU !!!!

I feel like they are airing their news standing tall on the \'deads of mercy\'. The problem is the kind of money they make from displaying \'sensation\' on their channels. The concerned authorities must put a limit on the channels on the lines of \'censor board to films\' and penalties for the same. This might restrict their \'innate desire for cash flows\' and will give us some relief from this ‘cashing in’ on the sensationalization of emotions.

We thought that only the news channels are the ones which are run by people and for the people but even they have forgetten the basics.

For the same I give all my support to Mr Vishal for this cause which is one of many things that need to be changed, to make this market into a wonderful place.

The media has been very prompt in taking the ministers and the senior officers to task for their short comings, however when it comes to their clan indulging in the TRP race they would like to justify it in the name of \'freedom of press\'. Not to forget the individual personal glory and promotion the reporter would have strived for at the cost of the CITY. If Ram Gopal Verma and Retish Deshmuk are wrong, equally wrong is the media.

Hanish, Mumbai
A very thoughtful approach to bring this issue into the limelight and let the Government know that their sleep is now long enough. Please wake up and get back to work.

Ranjith, Hyderabad
The media has a right to telecast anything in public domain. First - there was hardly any \'sensitive\' news on the news channels. But assuming there were some sensitive information, where did they come from? Was the anti-terrorism forces naive to let this info go on a live telecast? I\'m sure the forces knew what they were doing. Second - If the NSG/Police did not want the media there, they could have simply cordoned off a larger area. I think we must focus our energies on the massive faux-paus that the media committed - for jumping to various conclusions, for the lack of sensitivity in reporting, for taking a strong opinionated stand on every issue, etc.. Lets not waste the judiciary\'s time in doing this kind of stuff.

Hats off to you guys. You are raising a very important point. All news channels are busy in getting more and more ads/money. Old days were better when at least doordarshan used to give all news at 9pm only. They should allow to show the whole coverage only after operation is over and before that they should not be allow to show anything at all.

Henry DSouza, Chennai
Fully agree. Some media were trying to get footage of a blood stained hand at CST! And taking pictures of those getting into the bus at the Taj! How insensitive to the hurt and pain of those going through the tragedy! In fact, the terrorists at Nariman Bhavan seemed to have all the information they saw on TV and conveyed that to their friends at the Taj!

This was not an ordinary incident - it was a commando operation. HOw could the authorities even allow the media to treat it like any other \"news\" .

Not Columbia educated, hysterical jornalists who lost their brains and induced more panic and anxiety.Woe that they havent any regret for behaving like this. Common sense is uncommon - Barkha, Rajdeep..hope you are reading this

Although their intentions might have been noble, the consequences could have been disastrous as suggested in this petition.

Indian Intelligence failed in most of the cases of recent times and another one was pointed out by our friend in the petition above, I will like to add another point to try to figure out which appears to me as another wrong step. The point is if one of the terroist has been caught life, what may be the reason on earth for exposing the fact in front of the media, because by doing that the terroist organization will also come to know that one of their colleagues are alive and there secret information are about to expose, so obvious attempts to kill the man or to fly away the man may be there and for doing that they will do yet another or many acts of terror like they have done a case of hijacking a plane in the year 2000 when Atal Behari Bajpayee was the PM in demand of releasing one or more of their colleagues who presently were prisoners of the Indian government.

I strongly feel that news channels should be barred from showing any army/NSG/police operation which is going on.

I also feel that if a commando dies or is injured during the operation, its extremely insenstive to the family of that commando if they recieve this information through a news channel.

If you thought the coverage was over think again. Just this morning a radio channel airs a clipping of a some news coverage that has happened on some Pakistani news channel with remarks that would make any Indian angry.

And mind you the chief editor of a very known news channel was also part of the discussion on air.

High time someone took a stand..Reality TV shows and Real Life Trauma seem to hold the same importance to the media..maybe the media think they have the right to broadcast whatever they fell make headlines and top stories in the name of information or NEWS,to the extent of not only filming a catastrophe but broadcasting it live on TV footage which has all the potential of worsening a situation within a fraction of a second.Lets be practical,even if you have a loved one in a dangerous situation like that,it just causes more trauma and damage.Another not so great thing these recorded acts of terror are now easily available on the internet.The Media should be responsible enough to realize\"with great powers come great responsibilities\"and to take responsibility for the repercussions of their actions>> ALL the best to the petition and thanks to Vishal for being an aware and responsible citizen and doing his part.Jai Hind !!

I believe that we lost the commandos because we exposed their strategies and plans. I hate all teh News channel that promotes their TRPs by capturing such a sensational thing. And having sms polls to gain their pockets. At the cost of our country\'s sovereignty. Why cant the same TV channels help the nation to gain the 49-O code in our electoral rights. So that people have the option to boycott the politicians for their life time if they did not do their duty. Thats the only way ot take our nation in the right direction.

In fact, I would like to add that it was shocking to see common people in herds around the area under seige by the terrorists.

In fact the I&B ministry should take an executive decision to impose censorship with immediate on such material and broadcasting till the situation is under control. Also, TV channels need to stop inciting politicians from both sides of the coin during such times. News channels should stop organizing provocative debates and dividing politicians during such times.

While we are busy vilifying the politicians, and rightly so, and the media is gleefully playing up this sentiment if not fanning it, it really is high time media, electronic in particular, is held accountable for its despicable acts. We hear a lot about \"self-regulation\" and \"self censorship\" each time a tragedy occurs, the most recent instance being during the Aarushi murder case but clearly, like our politicians, these are all words never followed up with any action. In the name of journalism, all we get is insensitive and damaging coverage by breathless, panting 20-something so-called journalists vying with each other to thrust mikes on the faces ofaffected persons. One does not expect much from the likes of India TV but to have the \"respectable\" channels like NDTV, Times Now, CNN IBN anchored by celebrity, decorated and award winning journalists plumb the depths they have is scary. Their journalism, if it can be called that, is not just thoughtless and sensationalising, they practice it with a great deal of self righteousness taking a lofty, moral high stand which in some ways makes them as much, if not more, culpable than the politicians. This is true for many TV anchors but I have to say that Barkha Dutt tops my list of journalists who seem to have lost all perspective and sense of balance simply because there was a time one admired her spunk and also because we expect better from Dr. Pronnoy Roy. Having said this, Rajdeep Sardesai, Arnab Goswami, Sagarika Ghose, Srinivasan Jain et al all disappointed immensely. There are many things wrong with the Western media, but our journalists would do well to learn a thing or two from the likes of BBC where journalists and reporters always speak in measured tones and the reportage is articulate, thought through and based on facts. I support the cause of devising a mechanism which can ensure that our media draws the line where reporting ends and cheap sensation-mongering begins and learns to practice freedom of speech in the right spirit with due care, sensitivity and responsibility.

Shalabh Jain, New Delhi
Freedom of press is vital for a democratic country to progress. However, in a situation like 26/11, we ought to have a law that enforces a \'limited\' censorship on media. But it will be also required to monitor this law, if passed, so that it is not used for wrong purposes.

I am glad that you took up this issue. These so called free media channels are doing more disservice to the country than service. They are completely irresponsible. I would like to quote Mr. Uday Shankar CEO of star network who said in in Hindustan Times dated 29/11/2008 on page 8 that \" Anchor\'s play a critical role in maintaining balance in live coverage. Many channels have people of very poor intellectual caliber and maturity as anchors.\" If we have people with poor caliber and maturity then we do not deserve this much freedom. They are harmful to the society and country. I have registered my protest directly with CNNIBN and other channels. Obviously they have not responded.

The media should understand the situation and act accordingly rather than trying to compete with each Other. Some sort of Code of conducts should be imposed to all the medias in telecasting these kinds of issues. It should be imposed by the High court/SupreCourt rather than asking any particular government sort out such issues.

Preeti Garg, Pune
I totally support and believe in the cause. This information is classified and had it been responsibly handled by the media, could have saved lives of innocent people and the security forces personnel. Maybe the seige would have ended earlier. We are all citizens first and need to act with a sense of responsibility in whatever we do. My father, brother and so many of my friends are both in the army and i shudder to think they could have come to harm as a result of this.

Shailesh Bijwe, nagpur
I think media is more interested in entertaining the people keeping their actual moto aside. They made it business for earning and exploring their business taking these issues(terror attack) as advertisement for their business.Media must not cross their limit.

Media lives on because we tolerate or even applaud their sensationalism. I never watched it on TV this time. I suppose I learnt that I will be better off not watching it when covering Gujrat earthquake, a kid was taken out alive after 2 or 3 days and when he was being taken out of the rubbles to medical help, a shitty Aaj Tak cameraman and correspondent stopped his progress by blocking his way, to gain TRPs.

In a reactive way now, Its showcase of lack of pure+simple common sense to try out-think the terrorists rather than out-income & gain mileage per competition on TRP ratings, TIMES now & CNN-IBN will shout+harp on these figs sometime soon. Thinking of it, most of the TV news channels have a prominent figure journalist who is expected to speak sense & moderate the content & emotions articulately, however what was demoed is stupidity!!!!! Actually, its the job of the NSA & Home MInistry to see such things & address PRO-ACTIVELY, aint sure if they know what this word \"pro-active\" means :(

Unfortunately, on the second day of attack, some of the TV channels were involved in spreading rumors of terrorist attacks in various parts of Mumbai. The race to be first to report news make them give such baseless \"Breaking News\" without any confirmation at the cost of our national security. Time as come to restrict their audacity

giriprsad g, Bangalore
These news channel wants to raise their rating..they are not bothered about the life of NSG personal...they doing nothing to the nation by saying that they are doing many things to the nation. They should be punished next time if it happnes..

Media should not be allowed closer to areas where operations like these happen. They give the police and other relevant officials more hindrance. Police have to safegaurd these people also and cannot concentrate on the larger pressing needs. Media should only be allowed to relay censored parts of the operation after a few hours delay and not Live broadcast at any cost.

Amit Patil, Mumbai
This counter-productive media intrusion MUST stop NOW!

Yadunath Vyloor, Bangalore
Agree that the live coverage of such events need to be regulated. Media\'s live coverage would have also aided the masterminds of the attack in providing inputs through the satellite phones carried by the terrorists. This is definitely compromising the anti terror operations. Media also played up the emotions of people during the entire terror attack, fanned up jingoistic sentiments - Sense of sanity was totally lacking during this hour of crisis.

Ambika , U.S.A.
Media needs to be sensitized especially the likes of Barkha Dutt et al.

Media person doesn\'t bother about anything they only looking for footage on any cause, there must be a regulatory that can curb on the activity of news channel. If live coverage of every move of NSG and police force would not happened. We could have saved some more lives. But media doesn’t care all that.

Vinod Philip, Pune
Just as the Political Top Brass is being asked to be accountable, it\'s time someone intervened and stopped the Visual Media from displaying live footage during commando operations. This business of having the Visual Media increase their TRP’s during a national security situation should be curtailed by LAW. They should be stopped from misusing the constitutional right of \"Freedom of the Press\" during a national emergency.

I completely agree upon this and news channels must not show these kind of live telecasts. They must only flash the news and not the operations that are going on...

Ravindra Kammar, Bangalore
Initially I thought the electronic media is doing a great job by showing live telecast of terrorist attacks on Mumbai. But once I read your petition, I thought for a while and felt you may be right. If the live telecast of terrorist attacks will create uncomfortable position in the planning and strategies of our NSG / Police / Security people, then it should not be shown live in the television. There should be some code of conduct for electronic media for not showing / sharing their immediate live captures so that our security team can carry out the operation smoothly and successfully. If it is going to be true that terrorist can use electronic media as their eyes during this kind of battle, then electronic media should also fight with the terrorist by giving undisclosed support to the Security team. Media might say that by doing so they are misguiding / cheating the public viewers, but all that can be corrected later.

As an Indian Citizen I was appalled at the callousness of the media . Despite airing warnings to the effect that terrorists have access to the televsions, the media aired shots of NSG commandos landing on the NARIMAN HOUSE within minutes of the actual descent. Are TRP ratings more important than the sanctity of the Operation to flush out terrorists !! It is high time that guidelines are laid down by the judiciary !!

Praveen, Bangalore
Even I was watching the live broadcast of the rescue operation at Nariman House along with my friends and we were all raged by the foolishness of the media who were delivering deferred live footage. Hopefully Mr.Vishal\'s words will be taken seriously.

Rakesh Jain, Mumbai
In Our Country every one knows that news channels are here not only for some true news but also for MORE BREAKING NEWS and they are doing this from a long time for their TRP. In this terror attack as usual our News Chhanels were tring to maintain their TRP. They made a live telecast of that operation. Even some channels were saying that they are not showing live pictures of operation but they were doing live comentary of all things which was doing there.for example...1.now our fighter are lending at Nariman House.2.There are 10-15 fighter on the building.3.Terrorist is showing his white cloth from window of house...etc.At that matter we are felling very uncomfertable from the act of New channels.They were helping the terrorists.It was realy shameless act of our media and not only media we all Indians are also responsibal for that..When in our country a helper of Terrorist is also a terrorist than what about our media!!?? If we don\'t make any rule for our media than it will be more dangoures for us than 11/26. So its time to make some right move for our bright future.

I support and completely agree with the petition above. \"Freedom of press\" in its true spirit stands violated. What is Freedom of press? Is it a right to represent/air collective views of people of democratic India or is it a right to sensationalize breaking news items merely to improve bottom lines. Though I am not patronizing international media, but I’d like to draw comparison between attitudes of media in two different countries in two similar situations. If one were to cast their minds back to the London underground train bombing in 2005, BBC voluntarily blacked out sensitive information, which is in stark contrast to our media back home. Although I must mention that “Freedom of press” is common both for nations. However, unless the attitude of people (read media) do not change and humanity comes before bottom lines no amount of law will have the desired effect.

But Govt should hv directed these news channels to stop the direct broadcast right away when the operation against the terrorist was about to start. Hope things would improve in future ...

Respected Sir, It was indeed shocking and painfull to see the media being allowed to telecast live what is supposed to be a Combat, Search and neautralise, A very dangerous mission. Is that a responsible citizen of this country can do?, giving out live feeds of the mission, location of our snipers, the mounting of our commandos, exposing the location of survivors. The media risked their lives for what Greater cause? It was disgusting to see how these people chased the authorities, the survivors with their senseless questions. I believe there was a line to draw while covering the sensitive, dangerous combat operation. I urge you to ponder with your conscience and do everything that\'s possible in your authority to prevent such incidents in future. Thank you and regards

Stop the TRP concept for news channels. All this mess starts with the TRP ratings. Need to also look at who runs (owns) these Channels, are they responsible citizens, if yes, then why do they not understand such a basic thing, that we as normal citizens understand or is it that they do understand but are as usual TRP hungry to increase their revenues. The TV media needs to learn a lot from the RADIO, the RADIO guys have been doing a phenomenal JOB for the past few days of bringing a positive awareness and reminding people about their duties and giving them a direction as to how they can contribute.

Akshata , Mumbai
Why do they need fodder for their channels and stupid TRPS as and when a tragedy occurs!! Its not just this incident,every little incident is blown up and \"MINUTE BY MINUTE\" updates are not really required at least when there is an anti terrorist operation happening. There should be control over content being displayed on these channels.Yes there is RTI and all which is very important but not important then lives of people who are amidst the situation! Hope this works out!!

There should be some guidelines for the press and media. I\'ve read several reports of some stories - somehow contradicting each other. Add to that - many channels have their own propaganda.

akshay, bangalore
Vishal has taken an excellent initiative in powering the public voice.TRP\'s are more important for the news channels,whether the issue is sensitive or not does\'nt matter to them.I was one among the many glued to the television as i have resided in Mumbai in the past for four years.And all I could see in them was \"BREAKING NEWS\"-continuous coverage of the incident without the usual \"small break\".And that was the case with not one but many(about 20 nationals-Hindi,English and lo -even business channels).Another thing I noticed was that if it had not been the terror attacks,it would have been the news coverage of the death of our former PM VP Singh.Time to time updates from these channels would have even helped the terrorists. News channels should be careful enough ib broadcasting the right information. I hope more votes pop in for Vishal to help ourselves combat terror.

Good job you have done. My vote to you.

uday kulkarni, Hyderabad
Thats right.Media people of all companies are competing each other to provide maximum coverage.I even heard some media people telling that \" only our channel is providing maximum which no other channel did it \".This is embarising to listen that we Indians fight among ourselves which is giving chance for terroists to accomplish their targets and create panic in our country. Solution: No TV channel should telecast live coverage.They just need to update news for every 10 minutes[in that situation].This avoids leakage of important strategy made by our rescue team.Thus they can be caught with in no time saving many lives.

Bhavesh Shah, Mumbai.
Good Going. Keep it up

RajaRao, Pune
Media should take more responsibility while dealing with such things.

Hi Vishal. You might want to add an additional clause where during an emergency situation, reporters shall report only official data that has been passed by the controlling authority. No victims/relatives etc shall be interviewed. The direct criticism of Gen. Hooda\'s comments that there were no hostages, by Barkha Dutt, was indeed shameful. The General was trying to get the message across to the terrorists that the hotel was empty, and the media managed to invert it completely.

Amardeep Sangwan, Gurgaon
At least at such sensitive national events, media must not be let free to do any thing. There must must be a proper media handling at such diffcult times.Accountabilty must be fixed for the media also.After all nothing is more important than national security.

News are not greater than the lives of our brave soldiers. We should not risk their lives in the name of news. The media should be restricted and given some set of rules to follow for the different situations. How do they get these details of terrorists phone number? Did they co-operate with police to track down the origin of this number.

Ashish Shah, Mumbai
Please avoid giving out strategies and position of our personnel alongwith who is caught and who has been caught and what is our police doing u can just provide with basic info on what is to be done by the general public.

I highly appreciate the initiative being taken here. The news channels in their desire to be one step ahead of the other are sacrificing our national interests. Freedom of press should not be at the cost of our brave soldiers lives. Hoping for a small change!

I agree that news channels should know that they are to provide news not the entertainment.

I totally agree that such missions should not be broadcasted live. May be that was the reason it took 60 hrs for the security forces to end their encounter. It is good to provide information regarding terror strikes so that perople are aware about the same but media needs to put an end to show such live coverage of such missions.

Ravindra Jaiswal, Pune
I hope that the court will take a proper action and direct the I & B Ministery to pass a law in order to have a control on our Indian Press

Vishu, Hyderabad
In addition to the complete closure of live broadcast of anti-terror operations, the media should refrain from broadcasting victims who are injured or killed either at the crime scene or hospitals. The reason being at times the scenes are so horrifying that it can leave a scar on the minds of young children, old people, weak hearted people and pregnant women. The events which took place needs to be reported but not with visuals.

Nidhi Selot, Pune
Yes, there should be some guidelines set for this yellow journalism. These days there is no standard of news and it’s a shame the way Barkha Dutt and other senior journalists unnecessarily sensationalize the news hurting people\'s emotions and also disrupting such a sensitive army and commando operation where the life of so many people is on stake. Its good to provide information but there is not need to show the live coverage of the army operation. I really wonder how the media could telecast all the ongoing plans of the commandos and the army. Also, calling the people trapped in such a situation is not appropriate, it can risk their lives and this way the media is not helping them rather it is making their situation worse. I agree, the media deserves to provide the information to the country about the current situation but the content has to be regulated. I agree with what is stated above.

Neha Tandon, Mumbai
Dhananjay Ram E, Bangalore
I hope court takes notice on this matter. Also media should stop speculating even before investigation takes place. Last thing I don\'t hope to see is a reconstruction of the events in some news channel. If this happens then strict action should be taken on the news channel.

Neha Sodhani, Mumbai
Media should understand the seriousness and should be more responsible.

Mayuresh Gaikwad, Mumbai
Also, why are the perpetrators of these henious crimes against India being referred to as \"militants / separatists / Jihadists / Fidayeen\". They are none of these. They are TERRORISTS, out to terrorize the common man in India and they should be referred to as Terrorists only. Calling them as \"militants / separatists / Jihadists / Fidayeen\" lends some kind of credibility to their actions, which is not what is the case. These should be treated with the strictest punishments under the IPC (i.e. to be hanged till death) for waging a war against India

absolutely right..media has now become more commercial...

Karan Rao, Delhi/Ncr
I agree, the live coverage was utterly disdainful. In times when the war on terror is on the news channels should not have produced live coverage. The security of the security personnel is paramount. I agree with Vishal Dadlani.

Ganeshprasad Marathe, Mumbai
The news reporters potrayed themselves as heros on the scene with loud voices and capable of talking 60 hours non-stop about their own personal views LIVE on TV which was just a piece of RUBBISH. They have no love for the nation and are working only for the TRP of news channels. If they really had love for the nation then they would not had broadcasted the siege and counter operation live to all. Due to the greed of all TV channels for gaining TRP\'s, the terrorist got the exact location of our brave forces which delayed the effectiveness of the entire operation.

Jeetendra, Thane
Achyut, Mumbai
Good Luck with this Vishal. In a disgusting display of oneupmanship the news channels gave away exact numbers of NSG commandos, the weapons they were carrying and their strategy. Arnab Goswami gave a holier than thou speech about the importance of free and fair press in a democracy after news channels in south mumbai were blacked out. Sorry Arnab, spare us the morals. Just play back the days footage and count the number of times you used the words \"exclusive to this channel\". Is the I & B ministry\'s guideline only limited to protecting us from suggestive ads on television ?

I have been appalled at the stupidity of the news channels.They actually endangered the lives of the security personnel,NSG commandos and the police by giving away minute details of the operations.As a medium of instant communication they have a much larger responsibility,which they have always chosen to ignore.I hope this movement leads them to introspect into their actions and use their power with discretion.

Rajni, Hyderabad
It was really sickening to see the media reporting the way did. Showing the whole commando operation, dead bodies lying in the blood, faces of the people who managed to escape, just shows their callousness. In trying to outdo each other their ethics and moral values have taken a back seat. Its high time these people be taken to law.

Koushik Pal, Mumbai
Freedom of Speak is great but with out adequate puncutation it is likely to cause a lot of chaos and commotion. Its has also come to light that our neighbouring nation Pakistani media has taken severely, certain channelsin India alleging that Pakistan is responsible for the entire episode. The need for a code of conduct is imeprative for a broader prospective and wider implication. We all stand by this petition.

The Indian media cannot show case itself as the protectors of Indian Democracy. Its the Indian Judicial System that has to do the same. Irrespective of the media channels thier reporting has caused constant stress and danger to hostages caught up. They need to clearly understand that its not a movie and is a real life emergency. Reporting is one part, sensationalizing is another. They are sensationalizing the incident. This is totally unacceptable, for instance the call with Hannah Bruce is totally unnneeded and might have put the person in potential risk for life... Media must know to segregate between what is reporting and what is not. Also the I&B ministry must be given permission by the honourable supreme court to black out channels when in need and during national emergency.

I have been following the reports on the attacks on the internet for the past few days and it makes me boil to think that our own people, our own media has jeopardised us this way. It...just...makes me MAD to think that there were people out there with cameras and microphones trying to mint on something as traumatic as this... It reminds me of that incident during Kargil War when, a prominent woman reporter, insisted that guns be fired for the benefit of the camera and almost immediately there was a retaliation from the enemy which resulted in the death of three soldiers. We need to book these \"criminals\" who go about exploiting situations in the name of civic management. Stop making a business out of civic management. Be a journalist because you WANT to do something for this society. Stop this farce for heaven\'s sake!

Dear Indians, It\'s high time that we rise to the occasion. After observing the worst comments made by politicians on sacrifices of martyrs, a tide of change in leadership at the Centre & States is a must. Youth of India has to enter into active politics and clean the system. An Indian version of \"Obama\" has to come up and show the world that India is still alive and we will fight all the odds to become \"Golden Bird\" once again. Also, wise people like Prabhu Chawla(Aaj Tak) & Shekhar Gupta (NDTV) should think on these issues confronting the media in India.

The only possible way to change the system is to change the system itself. 61 years of failed track record is enough evidence that this electoral system is not worked and will not work. So what options do we have, we have plenty only the will is required which is also gathered now, so now a sane voice is required to provide solutions.

Manoj Kumar, Pune
Two Things : 1. Even in the past, such live TV broadcasts have compromised Anti-Terrorist operations. E.g. 1974 Munich Olympics - after which live broadcast of such operations were banned in Germany. If not on ethical & moral grounds, these news channels should atleast learn from history. 2. Apart from being unethical, in my opinion, they (read as all news channels) are also insensitive. In the latest Mumbai attacks, at one point, Burkha Dutt asks the wife of a deceased Taj Hotal Guest -- \"Abhi aapko kaisa lag raha hai ?\". I am sure that this is not the questions you would ask anyone who has gone through such a great agony and Burkha is supposed to be one of the best journalist we have in India! It would be great if you could add to your list of questions, this insensitive and immoral behavour of journalists - just to capture in camera, people crying in agony !

I am not sure whether terrorists can make much use of this information. But at least they will get prepared accordingly and surprise portion of this attack is taken away. We were witness to this crisis which took more than 60 hours to resolve.

Raghu, Hyderabad

Samridh Sethi, Mumbai
Finally our energies are being channeled in the right direction: The broadcast media industry. I was trapped in the Taj all night and felt helpless that everyone, including the terrorists were aware we were being kept in the Chambers. People around me must have received over 4-5 calls from journalists outside asking us of any changes in the scene, instead of them giving us information and helping us stay calm. What has appalled me is that even after I was out, and everyone was aware that the Terrorist were tracking the tele, an MLA who was trapped in the Trident called a news channel and revealed his room number and exact location. Why was the room number aired? Fair that the channel wanted to take the mileage for call (that’s what they thrive on), but they should have cut out the room number from the conversation. Where is ‘live editing’ which is proficient enough to capture grenades being thrown into Nariman House by our savior’s the army, but not ‘proficient’ enough to edit such important details such as someone’s room number. The MLA, as expected was brutally shot dead 15 MINUTES after. I ask this question to the broadcast minister – WHERE WERE YOU? AND WHAT ACTION CAN WE SEE GOING FORWARD. Talk to your counterparts in the UK who refused to broadcast live news in the 2005 London blasts….. In addition, our police needs to be given more freedom to arrest media persons who refused to move back from the Taj even when our forces were literally begging them to move back (I am an eye witness to this). Why wasn’t a police van brought in and the television crew arrested?

I am in favour of creating a strict code of conduct for TV channels for broadcasting live any Police or Military operation or any Govt. activity which is important for the country\'s security and concern. Take example of 9/11 happened in USA, there was no live coverage of anything happening near the buildings colllapsed for so many months together.

Manish Dasgupta, Bombay
Media has been irresponsible through out this incident. Hostages released after 2 days of terror were welcomed by microphones stretched at their faces! I plea to the authorities to have some common sense and responsibility while coveraging such incidences. It would be much better if the electronic media can be kept at bay , far off from the ground zero in such kind of a situation.On a lighter note, all of us are familiar with the live telecast of cricket matches 26/11 media coverage seemed live telecast of a battle!!!!!!!

KP Balakumar, Chennai
While one commends the media for informing the public of the happenings at that time, I definitely think that the media needs to have some sort of code of conduct. The airing of a minute by minute update of what are security forces were upto is unpardonable. This would have given the terrorists or their masters, crucial clues on what our commandos were doing. Also, airing shots repeatedly without giving appropriate credit for the time at which those events took place made one wonder if Bombay was burning over and over again. There should be a single feed that is shared to all news channels..to avoid \'breaking news\' in times like this and have each channel trying to outdo the other.

I think Media did hamper the rescue operation by running a live 24 x 7 show. I was wondering whether I was watching a rescue operation on a NEWS channel or a Reality TV show. They were of more help to the terrorists than they were to general viewers by passing on all the critical info about our troop movements and showing them live on TV. There should be some kind of limit set as to how much information can be passed on or shown on NEWS channels so that they do not hamper critical rescue operations like this by covering it live.

I was watching the TV almost continuously from the time I heard about the incident and the constant thought was how and why the media was allowed to broadcast whatever they did. The terrorists having planned their attacks so well, would obviously have access or the means to access the same information and more, especially with TV sets in each and every hotel room, potentially endangering the lives of the people stuck at the Taj or the Oberoi or Nariman House. Though the TV coverage did give me an insight into so many aspects of the whole situation, which I may not otherwise have got and I think without seeing all that was going on, the fury and the emotions that built up among the people may not have happened … But that in no way gives anyone the right to endanger any life. I also wonder about the Israelis killed in Nariman House. Were they gunned down by the terrorist earlier in the siege or when the terrorists were in the last stages ? Did they have a chance at all? Because I believe the first duty of the rescuers to save lives and exhausting all such options. Finally maybe the decision has to be taken for the greatest good of the greatest number !! However, in earlier cases like Rubina Sayed, terrorists in prison were were released by the Indian Govt. And so, for now, there are more questions than answers. The only thing I am certain of is, that we have to stand up together irrespective of caste, creed, religion etc and ensure that we do not carry on the way we have so far but strike for positive change, however long it takes. We will have to ensure things change from now on and politicians are not allowed to go back to the old order of things after the initial anger has died down. We must ensure that there is more transparency in government from now on and we must constantly be on our toes to monitor every move the government makes. We have to send out the message loud and clear that we are watching and if they do not deliver, they will never come back. If we don’t do this, then we will only have ourselves to blame. As Thomas Jefferson said “The price of freedom is eternal vigilance”

Along with this we need to strengthen our security personals, how can we think that a police hawaldar with a lathi can fight with a terrorist with an AK-47?

I totally agree with Vishal, that the TV channels should be restricted from showing the LIVE TELECAST of such events which will or would hamper the security of our very own country.

Totally agree. On one hand they were telling that the army has requested not to show the footage on the camera and on the other side they were showing the footage.. Totally ironic.. Even if it was not a live coverage, still it gives a hint to the terrorists.

Devina Bafna, Kolkata
While it is important for the people of India to have the latest update of the turn of events relating to such delicate matters, like the Mumbai attacks, and the news channels seem to be doing a commendable job; but they cannot do so at the risk of the precious lives of our security forces who are fighting every minute for our safety. I request the concerned authority to ensure through an Act or alternative procedures that the News channels act more responsibly towards the lives of our security personnel.

I sincerely believe that it was unethial and uncalled for on the part of the media to air the so called \"live footage\". It simply shows they were callous in their action towards the sufferings of the people who were under seige as well towards the nation. I belive that all these NEWS CHANNELS owe this country an apology for their actions which as i see was nothing more than a gimmick so that their TRPs could shoot.

Pooja Gandhi, Mumbai
the second point of the petition is very true when i watched the broadcast of live conversation with terrorist the very first thought stuck in my mind is how reliable are these so called news channels! What the terrorist was doing at the time of attack! was he there to give his interview or to rise the terror!

neha, mumbai
karl valentine, mumbai
i agree with all the points. The News channels only create confusion and make a small things look big whether it is a bomb blast, flood or the recent terrorist attack in mumbai where reporters were seen lying down and giving their reports. It seems that they wait for suitations like this to increase their TRP\'s by going overboard with their live coverage.

Vivek Prakash, New Delhi
The manner in which the media conducted itself during the long hours of this crisis went far beyond and indeed away, from their responsibility to provide us with factual information. Their appalling behavior was second only to that of our politicians.

Vikram, Navi Mumbai
Journalists should have been more cautious and should have displayed more character. Just of the sake of BREAKING NEWS they should not have revealed the positions of the security forces.

meeta, delhi
are we not accountable to anyone? the electronic media will do whatever they like?

mehul nakhare, Ahmedabad
Terrorist have a field day due to our inept media. To add to the petition all form of debates/discussions about the attack should be banned.They serve no purpose other than divide and confuse the people and add to the channel\'s TRP.

Our TV channels have tried to exploit their freedom, forgetting their duties to the viewers and nation at large. Add to this, the constant attempt at converting any given piece of information into a human story is unjustified and barring a few journalists (who can be called so respectably) they should be sacked and given a clear picture of what they have been doing.

Anup Kumar, Ahmedabad

There was an article in Indian Express,pune(1st or 2nd Dec) which had mentioned tale of a woman Jharna Narang and how some members of her family were saved whilst the other killed due to this very issue. It so happened that they were being moved out of the hotel and some of her family members had escaped succesfully when tv\'s flashed the news of terrorists being killed at girgaum chowpatty. This led to indiscriminate firing in a fit of rage by the terrorists, resulting in death of remaining family members of jharna\'s family.Well if this is true this is nothing but gross negligience on the part of media in their one upmanship game where innocent people have lost lives. My heart is seething with anger and rage coz the media which is claiming to bring politicos to the book is itself being let away.Shame on you MEDIA!

Yes, The LIVE telecast should be in fact be deferred by atleast 1 hour. Even the Defence have admitted to their operation being compromised because of the media coverage.

With all due respect to Vishal, and the organisers, I think this is late, and most footage out of the bottle, and in the hand of terrorists/enemies. However i praise the effort. thanks.

I fully agree with the observations. The news channels glorified the episode and helped the terrosits in achieving their goal.

Anika Ranjan, Hyderabad
The media should act responsibly and learn to differentiate between the classified and public material.

Put NATIONAL SECURITY AS FIRST PRIORITY. Everything else TRPs, Ad Revenues is nothing compared to the National Security and Lives of our People. My humble request to all news channels is keep BUSINESS VIEWS & BENEFITS out of SECURITY Matters.

Bhavik, Vadodara
Koel, Singapore
It\'s highly irresponsible of the media to telecast such an event live. We have also come to know that the terrorists were checking their Blackberrys and were updated by their that as well as phone calls from their base unit members who were watching television continuously. While I admire the journalists\' courage , I think they should be more responsible and refrain from repeating this attack in future. It is thankful that none of the affected people\'s family have yet charged the media for further jeopardizing their families who were stuck in the Taj during the attack.

Sumana, Bangalore
RAHUL JAIN, PUNE
Today\'s media has become intolerable. All they care about, is their TRPs and nothing else. I hope that they will realize their commitment towards the Nation and will try their level best in showing content that does not hamper anybody\'s privacy and safety.

news channels should not try to outsmart each other by sensationalising a highly sensitive issue, but should be behave responsibly and maintain restraint in their broadcast.

Manish Mehta, Delhi
there is a difference in \'freedon of press and info\' vs responsible press. The media should not have been allowed near the area and only official updates should have been providd by a central body common across all media. they have made it into a terror saga jeopardising the lives of all involved in the rescue operations and people in the respective locations. Its not only about TRPs always...

the media actually makes the terrorists feel like they have acheived a great thing by showing it to be a crisis that has completely destroyed the nation. violence and wars must be condemned but only to the extent that a citizen retains the courage to bear or curb it, and not start feeling helpless and unsafe in everyplace he goes. i believe it is this attention and fear that terrorists seek as they well know they contain stand indian army.

Tanaya, Rourkela
Point 1: TV channels broadcasting the information regarding the FBI investigation and live photograph of the team member in Taj hotel post Mumbai incident can alert the terrorist group and related people may loss their lives. All the talk exchanging between India and rest of the world are on Air for example list of wanted terrorist may alert them. Point 2: Post Mumbai attack the whole nation is in sad and anger mood. Hence TV channel should act sensible and should not show the statements which can invoke any kind of disturbance in our society as we have seen in case of “Lipstick powder” ladies are protesting. This is the time to concentrate on national security and nothing else. Any one can report the way TV channels are doing now days. However they should act as professionals. Modern edge external and internal terrorist are supported with all security related information. Please stop providing more information to them.

Sunil , New Delhi
Hi All. I also totally agree with this point, media should understand their responsibility/criteria towards country. What they wanted to do by showing live coverage? It seemed media just wanted to help them and update their chief that were seating in some other country and was updating terrorists about the movement of our security forces which I guess helped them a lot till the time they had the satellite phone. Media was doing it for the sake of breaking news only which they should avoid it. Government should implement a code of conduct for all these media persons. Thanks for all of you who have signed and will sign. Let’s do the same thing in different way.

Hydmamu, Hyderabad
Sudheesh, Bangalore
I agree with you. NSG was risking their lives to save us/our guests. Remember NSG people getting deployed from helicopter was captured are relayed using 3 cameras. Inside Taj, when NSG was advancing room by room, the same got relayed. Media should restrain from doing this.

uma, Vizag, formerly Bombay
The media was painfully insensitive and hankering for sound bytes even from shocked dazed victims like dogs in heat...I couldnt watch it onscreen...turned to the net for updates, at least there was less hype and drama online.

Rajiv, Mumbai
All i care is to see that ...was it enough for our SOB politicians to wake them up or do they need more innocent blood... do we retaliate the way the american did... or we just blame our luck and forget it for another attack to happen ... i may nt be a pro -american on other issues... but they way they handle the 9/11 was worth prasing... do we do our bit the same way ... i would be all for it for the corporates in mumbai to avoid the taxes ...that shd put immense pressure on Delhi to do something concrete...

I think this is a correct step taken as by doing all these coverages media is definately helping the locals to know the lateste situation about the attacks but on the other hand they are also helping the terrorists to know about the operation being undertake by the NSGs. I think this should be taken into considertion.

Hi, Yes I do support it. But here I also want to ask a question to these page 3 and corporate people that - why suddenly you all got involved in these issues? Is that just because of the attacks are on your places now? Otherwise what you said I am agree with that.

India needs to think about news chaneels. their is no control on that. The strick laws should be made on media that they will be in limit. IF media discloses confidential information, should be banned in INDIA.

Jai Chadha, Mumbai
I believe , the point raised by Vishal is absolutely right, but who has appreciated media, encouraged them. Who has given some channels which term \"Breaking news\" for the news which have no meaning and give them Best channel award for consecutively 3-4 years. The height was when the news of kareena kap0or\'s zero size was a breaking news and the reporters were trying to figure out wat diet she must b having ...or wat her pyschological frame work would be. Bull shit... I guess govt should not approve any more news channel and shorlist the no.of news channels to half. I plead for this reason also.

Udit Tyagi, Bangalore
Well, there should be a line defined for media action.We cant stop them but have to restrict them so that their actions do not become lethal for the people or nation.

I\'m not asking for censorship of media - they\'ve been the only body who\'ve reacted in a moment of crisis & done their job. I\'m requesting only that they think & behave in a responsible manner which doesn\'t work contrary to their obviously excellent intentions

shreyas suvarna, Mumbai
The media is presently dispalying a rouge and imature attitude . It needs to controlled and a strong norm enforced.

prashant, Noida
Some media channels saw this moment as their TRP gaining opportunity hence put their reporters on the same mission as our brave commandos. Please make a law which should prevent showcasing such incidents live. such as body lying on road after blast etc. You can\'t see such telecast in US or UK anymore as they have enforced a law for such incidents.

parnapatkar, mumbai
media must act in a responsible manner ,they wield a lot of importance in such instances and must act judiciously.

And this is what we call secret mission by the defence to handle terror. As Vishal said it was an open book and every person in this country, who had access to television knew what was happening with so called secret mission/operation.

I do agree with Vishal and also want to state that operations like these are very sensitive. The Indian Army (police, NSG, MARCOS) are under tremendous pressure to perform their duties of giving their lives and we make soap opera out of it. Not done! Politicians are talking senseless due to these pressures. Media are making issues, rightly but it should be without showing any footage. These are not films but real-life incidents. Media has to support by not filming strategies and giving out clues, if terrorists can carry hi-tech weapons and sat phones dont you think they are wired to get all the news update from outside world. Who from politicians to common people would plan 1 year ahead so meticulously for one project, NONE and yet we will show what we are capable of without the knowledge how it can hamper operations and build pressure on the people giving their lives for US. It is time for all Indians at heart to abstain from any kind of voting unless things are sorted out in our country. I hope that at least we have few good leaders who can address the issues but only few...I urge people to wake up. But also request the citizens of India that they be the first to abide by laws and follow rules and regulations so as to point our fingers to others who dont. Dont sell yourself for greed of having more. We have come to this world with nothing and leave with nothing.

Amandeep Singh Mehandru, Mumbai
Great Job Vishal. Infact, I ould like to add here that if each one of us learns to do our own work dedicatedly and sincerely, these type of terrorist attackes would be things of the past but somehow the TRUST is missing among fellow citizens. I don\'t blame any single politician or news channel as they are doing all laxity in their work becuase there is no sense of responsibility in them. They feel every work of theirs justified. So, this initiative of Vishal will go a long way in making every poliician realise that it is high time and they must gear up and be responsive to the genral public or else public will and can have the power to throw them out of the system.

Media has Indirectly Killed Sir Karkare, Sir Kamte and Sir Salaskar by informing the terrorists the way by which they were travelling. Terrorists were in TAJ & Oberoi where u can find TV in each room also they could have been informed about the same by their counter parts in PAK since the news channels are visible there too. Media have actually killed many people. Also is it not possible that the terrorists escape by posing themselves as media persons?????

Prashant, Mumbai
I strongly recommend & also want to add some more points.It is true to blame the Media , Intelligence, Security System etc but no one is bothering about the policies which we have . We had attacked 24 times from last 4 years but still we are on the same track why ? because our laws are not so strict where we can punish either of terrorist or any other body support ting directly or indirectly to the terrorisms. I have totally lost the faith on the ruling Gov . By eliminating few leaders is not sufficient. It is just a drama. I am expecting strict law for each & every activity .By this a person can think at least 100 time before acting against any democracy .

I had the same feeling what the above petition expressed. Some of the news channels are really misusing the \"Freedom of Press\" concept. It clealy looks like they are competing each other for popularity and least bothered about the sensitivity of the info they are broadcasting. It is also disgusting that these news channels act like \"entertainment\" channels when they broadcast and sesationalize petty things. I strongly believe that there should be a code of conduct for them and they should be held accountable.

Media is giving what the terrorist\'s want. Media Blitz. Footage of their \"men in Action\". The media has provided it in abundance. Many such attacks are even planned for prime time television viewing. I do appreciate the role of the media in forcing the government to act. Personally I feel self regulation is the answer, focusing on not to give out footages of terror or terrorist in action.

I agree with Vishal...in fact, some of the so called \'News Channels\' are in fact entertainment channels who thrive solely on creating fear, panic, false news propaganda & sensationalim in order to survive. Some of these same news channel have in the past been guilty of false reporting (remember the Aarushi Talwar muder case. It is high time that the electronic media is regulated. Congarats for taking up this initiative Vishal. Keep it up!

P. Bhagwat, Mumbai
It was highly unethical of the Channel cameraman trying to capture the live pictures and the anchor or the so called \" Reporters\" claiming \"Exclusive\" footage , being simply outrageous. The impact these facts(The terrorist attack) , which were presented as \" Sensational items\" scared young minds to such an extent , that they refuse to go to school. I wonder why Censoring of Media , curfew around the area of operation not strictly adhered . The Maharashtra Government , was just a mute spectator , which didn\'t even participate in controlling the crowds . The NSG head was repeatedly seen giving sound bytes on the street , there was no official pressroom erected for thr purpose . The government has failed in all aspects .

Akshatha, Mumbai
I&B Ministry should ensure that during such crisis the newschannels are blacked out.

kaveri bharath, Chennai
I also take strong opposition to the \"labeling\" of events by teh media. Calling this \'Mumbai\'s 9/11\" makes one jump to all sorts of conclusions! Also, television channels must report. Not investigate, nor comeup with their own theories. Especially if that \"theory\" has accusations which could put the country in a fix in terms of international relations!

I agree with above stated facts stated and want to show my displeasure at the mockery made by media . They should have refrained from the \"live telecast\" . Plus the police and the forces outside locations should have been more sensitive and quarantined the area. I have also seen a clip on cnn where local mob harasses a cnn lady correspondent in front of taj hotel , right is midst of the operations inside .That shows the situation maintained outside .How much more can we be callus about such attacks . It was a war on India and see the preparedness with which we fought .

Prashant Gupta, Mohali
I do agree with the above written cause. Freedom should be given to Media but under some limits or guidelines.

So now we want the government and the country officials (high court) to have restrictions on the media. I think during the whole mumbai attack, it was the media that helped people find friends and family, it was the media that allowed the entire country to witness the terror that struck mumbai AND it was the media that gave a voice to the hostages and victims. To answer your questions 1) The public near Nariman house wouldn\'t respect the cordon by the Police, you saw hourdes of people gathered around the house neglecting any risk to themselves, to get a closer look at the action. So don\'t blame the media for not obeying the Police cordon(which i\'m sure they did as far as possible). 2) If a person/s can get influenced by terrorist propoganda they would do so even if the media weren\'t present. Media is not controlled by morality and as long as they aren\'t we would get facts as they are. 3) All cable links to the 3 locations have to be cut off by the officials before starting an operation like this, cutting all contact of media to the terrorists. The media is broadcasting to the families, friends and lazy politicians who couldn\'t make it to the city. You talk of being rational, is this a rational solution to our problems? We are blaming the media, politicians now. What about blaming ourselves? If you don\'t like the news, switch off your TV. If you hate another religion, avoid them. If you hate a particular city or region, don\'t go there. Don\'t preach your ideas or opinions on people who don\'t want to listen. This is what got us here in the first place!

Hi, This is a very important issue , one of the channels even showed the position of the commandos in the hotel and said this is exclusively shown on their channel.

You are absolutely right....There should be a line defined for media action.We cant stop them but can atleast restrict them.

Gagandeep Singh, Chennai
Apart from this the news channels should be banned from interviewing the families of the dead.

I am outraged over these terrorist strikes that have hit our country time and time again, from Pakistan. Why should politicians like Mayawati, Amar Singh, etc. get z category security when ordinary citizens like you and me are left at the mercy of AK-47 weilding terrorists? I hope the Highest Courst in our great country take this petition as a PIL and take our Government to task for failing us EVERYTIME!!!!!!!!! God Bless Our Great Secular Democratic Republic of India. Jai Hind!!!

Vinod DN, Hyderabad
I agree 100% with Vishal Dadlani in this petition. In fact this is a common sense that these terrorists are also accessable to this media, if not direct but indirectly from the outside terrorist troup memebers. Government has to take a necessary action and do some needful to control the actions of media. The same with any news, which should not be exposed considering the safely and also the personal images. Serious action need to be taken from Govt. Otherwise, entire country will be in big problem.

Janmejay Patil, Mumbai
Rajeev Goenka, Mumbai
I agree..the media was reporting was not objective. It created a lot of hype. They shuold be sober. The anchors shold be responsible while talking. THey shuould be sensitive to the victims and the family,and not worry about being the first to get a byte or picture.

Yes Live Broadcasting of insurgency operation in the name of NEWS at the cost of our soldiers, who are striving to protect our life, is not worth watching. Lets be more responsible citizens and refrain from watching any such news. Lets not add to the problems of our valiant officers when we really can’t do much to resolve any of their problems. Lets strive together and refrain from such live broadcast of News, which might be of help to the Terrorists.

Archana Saraf, Kolkata

Yes, i m fully agree, we should bar the media airing such operations...

Rashmi Ranjan Padhy,
I am glad someone brought it up. This had to be stopped. We all know, with great power comes great responsibility. The media or the news channel has got great power, but they have been irresponsible. In this case and in earlier cases as well. One incident which comes to ming immediately is the news of a boy falling into a pit. It was covered live by almost all news channel, and it became a sensation. After the first incident, I have heard of atleast 5 more similar incidents, which I dare to say were intentional. There should be a limit placed on the news channel to protect the society. Even better if the news channel start showing responsibility.

Media is indeed a very powerful vehicle and needs to used as an instrument in spreading information judiciously and in a manner that helps the entire nation in it\'s stand against terrorism. Have TRP ratings superceded national security issues.?

i fully agree with all this and all the points raised are absolutely correct and significant. being an individual we dont have much that we can do to protect these armed forces. may be this is a begining of all that. i would also like to raise another question.. why our polceman arent equipped with latest guns or rivolvers to fight these terrorists at least in metros where the threat perception is always high. is it there birth right to be killed fighting terrorists becoz they r policeman?

Ekta Pathak, Mumbai

What Vishal is doing is correct this media is trying to outshone each other forgetting the basic security of the nation. There shoulh be a law regarding this. And i support it strongly

Let us also start thinking to change & find alternative to our parliamentary( election process etc)system linked to governance which has bred only corruption so far.This has eventually led to this 26/11 massacre.We also need young, educated & non -corrupt cadre of new politicians.

parul tyagi, meerut
news channel should be more sensitive in these type of news.one news can change one living person into a dead body.

Parth, Vadodara
Chandresh Trivedi, Mumbai
I absolutely agree with you. The media needs be put under scanner. How every channel showing the same scene, can write \"Exclusive\". India TV, in perticular, should be put under scanner. One news came \"Petrol Pump in colaba set on fire\" which never came again. India TV says only our journalists are allowed at sight others are removed. But still all channels showing same scenes. Next day India TV showed Interview of its own jornalist. Isnt it praising for self in this critical time. Then what\'s the difference between politicians and journalists who abuse them. The freedom is misused definitely. Govt. needs to put code of conduct for this channels.

They even had live feed of the hostages escaping out of the hotel during the operations while the terrorists were still at large. Were we trying to save the hostages or help the terrorists locate the hostages exiting the building. Seriously, how stupid are we??

Arun Raghu, Bangalore
francis joe, new delhi
let the blood of our fellow countrymen and foreign friends not go dry in vain. Let us honour them through our actions, by refusing to accept injustice in any form, be it refusing to bribe, or be bribed. We need to convey to the state machinery that they are at our service and not the other way round as they make it out to be. we need to participate, question more and be in control of our fate than outsource it to the media.

Naveen Varghese, Kerala
Adding to the points mentioned here, please Indians file a PIL and RTI petition towards the corrupt govt. Prosecute the in-charge ministers with criminal charges. Question their personal security cover. They should be brought to the book. The real terrorists do not come from across the borders but are the ones whom we have elected into office. Kick them out into jails. Independent India has not seen a single significant politician convicted for crime. Its time that we take our collective voices to bring them down, very down. And by the way \"None of the above\" is the best candidate if you feel the person(s) standing for your votes is not worthy.

There was one moment where the press needed to responsibily define their own boundaries for the sake of the nation and its an ultimate shame that they cant even do that for the sake of lives of innocent people.I think the best solution is to boycott whichever media which is responsible for such atrocious act.Thank god there is internet to voice our views without paraphrasing and miscontextualizing!!!

when 9/11 happened the US media was told not to show of planes hitting the twin towers. the same images if shown again and again affects the psyche of people watching it. but our media hardly understands it. instead of showing live the operation it should put non political people for a useful discussion. This will help unite the people of India. The media is behaving as irresponsible as our politicians and should be controlled.

Manju Yadav, Ramnagar, Nainital
Completely agree with the views of the petitioner. The senstivity of the case should be taken into account before broadcasting anything live.

Richa Bhardwaj, New Delhi
Pandurang Chauhan, Baroda, Gujarat
This is a good move and Court must have some control over media for this. We must not help, knowingly or unknowingly, terrorist by telecasting our commandos positions and their work.

I agree with Vishal....... Actully We should stand againest these News Channel those who always think about more profit and TRP. For these News Channel weather Terror attack or Dog dies in street is same. All they need is news and more & more advertisement on thier channel.

Ayesha, Delhi
Abhinav, Delhi
National security should always be our priority news channel started showing previous footage but that was very late, we praise the efforts of brave journalists who have shown so much courage to deliver the news to us but we should also be aware that the terrorists were using black berry\'s and Televisions screens were there in all the hotels.

Though the media kept us apprised of the happenings in the city , but was shocked to see the live coverage of the NSG commandos air landing at the Nariman House. It\'s sad that none of the channels could think of the damage it can do to the operation if the news reached the terrorists.

We just can\'t curse our media..Media is something which is doing wonders for us..Like giving us important news that our PM is suffering from cold and cough as a breaking news..seems they are running out of news..n if they get something which is heart breaking like the mumbai terror strike..then all the media person feel like.. oh god.. this is something i have been waiting for.. now i will cover as much as i can.. but dont they have brains to understand that people are in shock..its something which made so many families suffered too badly..n again they going n asking them... \"Kaisa Lag raha hai..\" Media should undersatnd they are the important part of the society but they should be in their limits and should be able to differentiate between what should be shown in the news and what should not... Media Guys grow up...

Ratnapriya, Nagpur
Media people are thinking that they are doing a great job, but is this the humanity that a person besides you injured by bullet, he is screaming with blood out of his hand and at that point of time instead of taking care of him live broadcasts were shown by media people ????? What the hell they are doing.

Anuja Bhatt, faridabad
we should have contingency measures so that even if unanticipated events like terror attacks take place,we are not caought off gaurd.It\'s time media understood the sensitivity of a situation let d victims and their families be..instead of pestering them with useless questions.

I appreciate the step taken by you vishal. Live broadcasting should be literally banned.how can they show the poitions of the commando\'s on television.Causing interruption in their work or plan of action or displaying their strategic moves is not acceptable.

Nameeta, MUMBAI
A very nice step taken by you. The media is behaving very insensitive and the telecast is also very much like K-serials which is repeated atleast 3 times.wish u all the best for the great task taken by you.

VAISHALI PATIL, MUMBAI
I FULLY AGREE WITH MR VISHAL , THAT LIVE BRAOD CAST SHOULD NOT BE SHOWN IN THIS SITUATION

Ella Nanda, New Delhi
Gangadhar Chintala, Hyderabad
Electronic media/TV channels should not broadcast such terrorist insurgency operations by telling the execution plans of our Elite soldiers. So that terrorists will come to know this and then they starts counter-attack our plans. If that happens, it is very shameful for us.

Averil Gomes, Mumbai
While gagging the media is not really an option in a democracy. Access to them in these areas should be curtailed at such times...Cordons should be set up bt the police..An NDTV Hindi Channel reporter was seen walking through CST picking up the empty shells from the AK-47 and showing them to the viewers...Isn\'t that contaminating the scene of a crime? So also the politicians who walk all over the site ...I think we need to take action against all such people ...Restraint and common sense is something that seems alien to them in their rush for TRP\'s and Fame....\"WE broke the news First\"....that\'s their only mantra.

Very good initiative taken, the news channels in their race for the top spot have basically lost the main cause which to privide the right news at the right time, rather than providing same news in different ways and then calling it breaking news all the time. There definitely needs to be a code of conduct for news channels before they turn into some documentary channels providing entertainment with suspense.

Ritesh Kadmawala,
varun, ahmedabad
the media cares only about their trp ratings & they will do whatever to get a higher rating. they dont give a fuck of the rules regulations or understand the condition of the sitution. all they want is the big breaking news...the govt must take actions & put some rules on these media people.

Srihari K, Bangalore
A code of conduct needs to be enforced on the media and we shouldnt allow them to exploit our emotions at the cost of fair judgement

I have also been wondering and complaining about it. It would be great to see this as a PIL, I hope our court deals with it right away.

With you completely on this, however, we also need to understand the anxious feelings of the loved ones in the world outside.

Abhishek Magre, Mumbai

So I feel that most of your concerns are legible.

You have hit the nail on the head! Another major issue is the self-destruction of our \"Intelligence Agencies\" please read the front Page of Hindustan Times on 2nd Dec, where R&AW exposes it\'s intelligence gathering capabilities to Mr. Vir Sanghvi and Mr. Sanghvi ofcourse publishes it on the front page \"as an HT exclusive\". R&AW and IB - we could in the next few days expose and thus render useless all our intelligence gathering capabilities! I think another petition is required against Government employees who expose national secrets to protect their posterior! I would be happy to contribute towards the cost of filing these petitions.

If media is so sensitive towards these rerrorist operation then why not they telecast live the fight between police and naxlalite which took place in jungle. In fact they will help the police a lot. It is very simple for them to be in front of Taj with full protection of Indian Army and report therefrom. In fact they were patting their back saying that they took grave danger in telecasting all these......

A request to the Media: Please stop ADVERTISING the news. I am sure your job is to deliver the news to the people and not advertising it.

Gurappa, Pune
Yes, I strongly agree with you. Though I don’t want miss a single min of such telecast...but not at the cost our our NSG lives...not at all. Indirectly we helped terrorist to kill our NSG...cant believe it !

vishal, mumbai
i agree to the views and believe the matter could have been handled in a more mature way. while the media tries to protect itself, they should have shown more foresightedness and have imagined the effect of such acts/live broadcasts.also such live broadcasts effect the minds of people and especially children. while there are agencies to rate/certify films and television programmes based on its suitability of viewing for different age groups, there seems to be no agency/law for such live incidents.

Amit Vyas, Mumbai
Please stop this

KUNAL RESHAMWALA, MUMBAI
I think objective for them is to increase the TRP ratings. One fellow asked Mr. RNT - \'How do you feel\'. Is this way to ask. There needs to be some regulations for channels. If they are not fulfilling it then channel should go off air. I highly recommend such regulations in place.

Thanxs for taking up this issues. I strongly in ur favour that H\'ble court should direct / input strick law for live telecast in such situation. TV News Channels/ media must not be allowed to show a live anti-terrorist operation until it is safely concluded! They must obey when they are told to disperse, and they must respect cordons created by the operating force. I such situation they have to follow as per miltary guidelines. In such situation \"Freedom of the Press\" should not exist either. Many Many thanxs for taking such important issue. Pruthviraj Chavan

Rightly pointed out. What these Entertainment(News) Channels are doing shows how brainless and baseless they are. They dont have enough sense to figure out the problem they are actually creating. Dont even know what to show and what not. And they say \"KHABAR HAR KEEMAT PAR\" yes very true to it, we are the ones paying the price (KHABAR AAM AADMI KI KEEMAT PAR). No less then politicians, who for trying to be No.1 Channel, spreading out false reports. Its high time that the electronic media is regulated.

news channels irresponsible about their duty other then helping our country they are helping the terrorist and guiding them to kill our officers.

Our media reporters need to learn how to conduct themselves.

I was aghast to see the way army and NSG commandos were working and TV showing it all. Especially when the NSG commandos were air dropped on Nariman House. Every move of security forces was at the terrorist disposal. I think it was the un relenting coverage by news channel which delayed the operation as it might have made the terrorists aware of moves of NSG. Shameful

This is really a good effort ....the press is not naive and they know the consequences of what they show in the name of awareness and information. We too r not naive not to know that all this is just for TRP\'s.

Vishal I do agree with you. The media should be controlled to some extent so that it does not affect the security of our country. Live broadcasting of such sensitive news gives the poper information of each step taken towards them..they should not be allowed to broadcast the sensitive news until the operation is completed..its time to take proper action against the media for such a childish/foolish act from them...

Sir, i think u r right, i am also having same feelings as due to media only, it has taken Our NSG commandos 60 hrs to neutralize the terrorists from Mumbai.

Kunal Patel, Mumbai
There was one instance where a studio reporter was trying to provoke by using words like \"democracy and freedom of press\" when he was narrating report about blackout of news channel towards the completion of the most horrifying days of Mumbai and India ; also making such statements like asking people to help and use their contacts to allow news channels to be telecasst to keep citizens updated. Well,if it was true about the blackout and Mumbai polie were involved in such act,I support my countrys\' Police and security system rather then listening to those reporters who were behaving more like our politicians than medium of news. I salute our police and Army. I dont think anyone has rights to question against their act when they had put their lives between line of fire to protect all of us.

I really felt the same. Our media was giving all the information to the terrorists about what position the rescue teams are taking, where are they as of now, etc. Even I am not quite sure about the fact that the terrorists are watching it live on TV. But, yes, they were constantly using the mobile phones and there are very bright chances of getting all this information from the other terrorist who are not part of this attacks. I sincerely join hands with this PIL.

I called my father and showed him concern about the attack, he told me pray for the ppl trapped in this terrorist attack and pray for self that you are not affected today, and when the day is not away when you will have to pray for your life when you will be in same circumstance.. Because I dont feel safe any more and cant depend on any authority, infact none. This is what is the feeling of ppl and my family. I have heard this statements from the most courageous member of my family - My Father.

Media should take this moment to the positive approach by considering our security forces life.

Akshay Agarwal, Mumbai
India TV should be banned, abosolutely baseless.Even if the live phone call with the gunmen was a falsetto, it amounts to inciting religious factionism within India. Actual gunmen if call the media, they are not supposed to talk directly with them as this a specialized job and extremely sensitive hostile situation, so in both cases India TV stands to lose face. I agree with Mr Vishal on all other points as they stand.

1.) One immediate step the Soldiers/NSG should have taken is to cut the cable connection. 2.) Cell phones / Satelite phones should have been jammed in the sensitive area.This would have broken the communication between the Karachi terrorist & insurgents. 3.)Hon Court should asked the government to publish the code of preventive measures the trapped citizens should take in such crucial period.

Very true. Imagine the terrorists armed with all the information about people they hav to fight and our forces fighting in dark. Those 10 seemed like 20, since they were in a better and informed position. Our forces do not deserve this - Week politicians(who are not leaders by any means) and an irresponsible media.

Kavita Bose, Mumbai
\"I absolutely agree with this. These media people were acting like animals. They knew that those terrorists had satellite phones, but still they were showing all our movements on TV as their \"BREAKING NEWS\". This is despicable. This was a disgusting behaviour. People were losing their lives, but they were only bothered with their god dam TRP\'s. We all should act in a sensible manner. This kind of a situation should be treated sensitively and not sensationaaly. They should should some sensitivity to this situation.

Its high time a line is drawn between the freedom of press and interference with the functioning of important bodies like security forces. We appreciate the transparency that the media is bringing in and the causes that its supporting. But its important taht they understand matters of security cannot become entertainment. I heard IndiaTV saying again and again that this is the closest veiw of the operation and some other channels repeating the word \'exclusive coverage\' till it started hurting my ear and sensibilities. Were they updating us on news or maketing themselves? Chanels please see, when and where are you saying such thinks. A simple question would help - are we doing something in interest of others and hence ourselves or vice versa??

Blessen, Bangalore
What has happened is sad & gory, but displaying it all in every living room in India is much worse. Media calls this a 9/11 for India…, how many dead bodies did the US media air after the 9/11? I haven’t seen even one.

I absolutely agree with what is said. For just one news they are risking one\'s precious life. If they really wanted to help the people they would have given all this information to the Police and the army only and not the whole world to know, what are we going to do with information sitting at home. Just display who all have been saved rather than revealing the plan.

Sonal Sheopori, Mumbai , maharashtra
I agree with this movement, as i had seen a times now journalist constantly perstering a foriegner who had just escaped out of Taj. She was asking him about escape roots and his room number. I thought this was very insensitive on her part, i dont blame her completely, but the channels must be probing her to get out more information for higher TRP\'S. I am also wondering what has happened to the channels now! they showed us the teroorist attacks for three days and now they are back to their ridiculous comedy shows and shows like saas bahu aur saazish. I appeal to the channels to show us meaningful stuff. And our right to information wont be affected if you dont tell us the exact details of the millitary operaions.

Our news channels are like vultures zeroing in on a carcass, they couldnt care less about national security or peoples feelings they are callous and prone to sensationalism, raving and ranting, please check the coverage of most media on the TV its pathetic. The anchors play around with words ask leading questions to the public or the people they interview and try to get them to speak and second their personal opinion. I would like the news channels to be more professional, without display of personal angst, hyper ventilating and maintaining their composure. One more point, (this point perhaps is not relevant to the topic on hand), we need not be subjected to incessant barrage of sound bytes....nonstop. What makes it intolerable is the \"aamms\" and \"aaas\" after virtually every single word spoken, I wonder cant we have well trained journalists who can speak one single sentence without those irritating nonsensical \'aaams\' and \'aaaas\' after every other word. Vishal we are with you, your cause is my cause, its a just cause.

I also feel that all the images should not be live, they could give the new.....as some channels did on the 2nd and 3rd day, that they didnot show any of the live images....but were giving the new. It doesn\'t matter for their TRPs in showing live news....and a news and images that has happened 15 minutes before. But it surely aids the terrorist in altering and modifying their plans from the \'free-of-cost\' information available through news channels.

Dear Fellow Indians, There is a system in our constitution, as per the 1969 act, in section \"49-O\"that a person can go to the polling booth, confirm his identity, get his finger marked and convey the presiding election officer that he doesn\'t want to vote anyone! Yes such a feature is available, but obviously these seemingly notorious leaders have never disclosed it. This is called \"49-O\". Why should you go and say \"I VOTE NOBODY\"... because, in a ward, if a candidate wins, say by 123 votes, and that particular ward has received \"49-O\" votes more than 123, then that polling will be cancelledand will have to be re-polled. Not only that, but the candidature of the contestants will be removed and they cannot contest the re-polling, since people had already expressed their decision on them. This would bring fear into parties and hence look for genuine candidates for their parties for election. This would change the way, of our whole political system... it is seemingly surprising why the election commission has not revealed such a feature to the public.... Please spread this news to as many as you know... Seems to be a wonderful weapon against corrupt parties in India... show your power,expressing your desire not to vote for anybody, is even more powerful than voting... so don\'t miss your chance. So either vote, or vote not to vote (vote 49-O)

Dear aaibaba, My additions on the petition filed for Taj : I said : I am happy to see this Unity in Diversity from Mumbaities, which occur esp after a calamity, I remember the 26 July crisis and earlier Bomb events in locals. I also agree with the petition to be filed but I would propose the Honarable court to guide us with adequate safety measures to live peacefully in the Heart of India(Mumbai) because if the heart is unsafe how will the body function? Many foreigners have planned themselves to visit Mumbai for Christmas and they may have an impression that Mumbai is a scary place and may even cancel their tour. The country needs safety of people as its foremost priority, then requires foreign nationals and their protection which becomes Our nation\'s prime responsibility and finally foreign currency that will make our developing country, a better place on the Globe. I am in England, suppose if this happens here and I will feel unsafe, what will be my openion about this nation? Think from both the prespectives, as a citizen and as a foreigner. I honestly feel our govt is sleeping and it only functions with kick of the people. Wake up politicians, u never give us comfort in travel, nor proper roads, nor proper infrastructure, you just collect taxes and keep on promising. This can happen to u as well, Protect the country and WE Indians are united in real sense to perform as commandos, INFACT WE CAN FUNCTION WITHOUT U. It is said : \"Look before u leap, think before you speak and Act before you weep\".

Geetesh Chheda, Mumbai
I completely agree to what Mr. Vishal says. We should not tolerate such measures adapted by media people to gain mileage. I was horrified by one media channel claiming to have a reporter, probably named Sachin Sharma, alongside NSG commandos in Taj Operation. The Channel claiming it to be an act of bravado. I don\'t agree to the statements made by them at all. \"Hamara reporter jan ki baazi khel kar aap tak report pahuncha raha hai\". What was he trying to do by accompanying them in the rescue operation? Who has permitted him to go there? The media should act responsibly and sensibly. Let us not forget this incident and make sure that, not only we talk and condemn such things, but we do take active measures. I can assure from my side that I will be there in support of people like Vishal, not just by writing or saying, but with the act that they will carry forward.

Kirthi , Houston
I strongly agree with you Mr. Vishal Dadlani. Media is supposed to alert people and should have been discretive about information inside the Taj and Oberoi.

There should definitley be some control over the media.

From rumours to aggressive marketing, they are doing everything. it is high time that some governance is imposed on them

M M, Mumbai
These reporters would go any extent. In fact one of reporters at one of the terror strike spots started talking about what the commandos were planning and the reporter in the studio had to actually cut him off and tell not to disclose the information for the safety of all the hostages still stuck inside.

media has indeed made the operaion difficult for the commandos as the terrorist would have been aware of their every move. The worst was one of the channels faking a whole conversation with the terrorist!!! (which is just so unbelievable!!!)

I believe in the freedom of the press, however in situations where national security is involved I am willing to forgo that. But, this is a very slippery slope to be in, because exceptions and loopholes can be used by self-serving politicians to their advantage in the future. Indian politicians are experts at taking advantage of obscure rules and loopholes to browbeat the system to their advantage. So, exceptions to the freedom of the press will have to be clearly spelt out and authorities who are expected discharge such duties on censorship should be clearly spelt out. Just like how important it is for us to make sure that sensitive information does not fall into the wrong hands, it is also important that no one misuses any new restrictions on the media to their own political or personal advantage. We have to articulate rules that will maintain the freedom of the press while protecting national security. Some will violate the principles from time to time but will have to be dealt with even handedly, swiftly and fairly. We will need to first ask who we are willing to entrust such a responsibility with. It is tough but needs to be done!!

I totally agree with Shekhar. Most of us hold the same opinion but could not find the right way of approach and Vishal and Shekhar have done it all! They have hit the nail on the target. There are certain news that should not be aired immediately. Media journalists simply plunged in without thinking about the repercussions. There must be some yardsticks for the media which they should strictly adhered to. We love our country and want it to progress in all positive aspects.

There should be no Live telecast of the terror attacks either on TV or on Radio. The News should reach common man with a delay of atleast 2-3 hrs. Blaming the TV & Radio channels at this point of time is useless. The TV channels broad cast as much as they can to increase their TRP ratings. Now the action point should be,to Pass a rule to all Media channels not to broadcast any terror incidents live.

wonderfully expressed, my thoughts exactly. i do hold the media responsible for a lot that went on those 60 hours, some good, mostly bad. the behavior was completely out of sync. i would\'ve imagined that they would\'ve learnt from kargil. the govt. needs to put an ombudsman in place to monitor this. also better journalistic ethics need to be taught. we also need to understand as viewers that we do not need this information, as it happens. security is of extreme importance.

Rachna G, Mumbai
I completly agree and also feel that necessary action also needs to be taken against the indian security system where in i am still observing that our police/security system are not up to the mark as per the security check is concern.

The media ppl do cross the limits sometimes and do the things which they r not supposed to. How can all of them be so dumb to air all the videos n photos of the places under attack from terrorists inside,thereby conceding the attacking tactics of r commandos?? These kind of things have to stopped.

Of the so called 4 pillars of democracy Legislature, Executive, Judiciary, and Press the first 3 have been often been put on trial on chastity. Common man is aware of the blacks, whites and grey in them. Press cannot be touched, press has ensured that. Even with fierce competitive rivalry no two press orgs. would mouth against each other. You are right, they haven\'t learned anything from past. They\'ll get away with a seminar on role of press.

Anu Biswas, Dubai, UAE
I fully agree with everything said. It was a serious lapse of security indirectly through media. Imagine the plight of the victims and their family when they could not get a minute\'s respite through the ordeal. Our senior journalists need to learn a thingor two from their counterparts elsewehere in the world and stop being close to hysterical during reporting. I fail to understand why the I & B Ministry was not given instructions to black out TV.

Santosh, Pune
The news channels should not be allowed to go off the hook. They are now airing some more classified information like what the captured terrorists are saying. This can severely hamper the ongoing investigations. Is the IB ministry sleeping? If IB ministry can black out channels for showing a bit of adult content, why not do the same with immediate effect on the news channels?

Jyothi Jain , Bangalore
I agree with the point raised and it is good step too but i fail to understand y do we awake up after the stituation turns worst for the counrty . Being an Indian i feel media should have understand by themselves ,I understand it is there work they should have recorded it but not telecasted live in same time . I feel even the common people should know the bravery stories .

And to add to the audacity of India TV, they were praising one of their video journalists after the NSG operation was completed saying that the journalist did a commendable job by not getting a change of clothes in order to get us live and non-stop footage.

The media has been given too much of freedom.And it acted very immature using sensationalization.

Which Pollitical party is worth to rule ? Can anybody tell, which political party is worth to rule...??? All these political parties are corrupted and are not worth to be in ruling... Does anyone still feels to vote for such parties and make them rule and get such terrorist activities continue... and after every incident, Ministers are ready to cook their food above victims grave. And this not the first time it keeps happening forever... We own are responsible for select our own government, and selecting such type of courpt ministers or political parties. Ministers should face this terrorist attacks then only they will realise what normal people go through... Let ministers rub their nose in ground and beg for votes but still they should not get the votes... All the Ministers are paid from our Tax Money, they have all the securities for what ? for creating communalism, voilence, fights... All these ministers should be fired... Who is saving and protecting us ? Police Force, Army & Military Force, Navy Force, Air Force, Commandos etc and still what they in return peanuts ! Yes !!! they get peanuts... Why Ministers are paid so high when they hide behind a normal people... A bullet fired by a terrorist is faced first by Army/Police/Comando force and then it comes to people... But it never reaches the Politician/Ministers why ? Do they really deserve this ? Let us stand together against terrorism...

Yes, I do agree with Vishal. The mission that got extended till friday-saturday would have completed much before if the media wouldnt have broadcasted everything live. Also, our commandos wouldnt have lost their lives. All thanks to media, who are actually responsible for the lives of our brave commandos. It clearly shows, that they were not helping the people but in turn helping their own selves in getting the footage, by expanding the terror. So government please draw a line now. enough is enough!!!. Media is now like any other channels, that believe in TRPs / footage etc etc rather than giving support & correct news.

gagansandhu, chandigarh
I agree with vishal dadlani and its appreciable someone has raised such and important issue which i think most of us seen but vishal has taken a stand against the live telecast by news television channels, Media has the freedom but they should not use it at the cost of so many prescious lives .time has come that media ppl should know their responsibilty towards the nation and Indain people .

\"Time and again our media have proved that they are irresponsible. But solely blaming them for this behavior is perhaps sub-optimal. Does the I&B ministry have the power and authority to order a media blackout or send out a restraining order against media coverage. If they do have that power then it is obvious that the I&B ministry did not exercise that power during the hostage crisis and therefore should also share part of the blame. THe fact is that a media black-out should have been ordered. Only verified information, routed through the I&B ministry or other designated sources should have been allowed to be broadcast. This free-for-all was enacted by an over-zealous media and allowed to run free by an lethargic establishment\"

Though i am not in favor of censorship, what was perpetrated by terrible trio of BARKHA, ARNAB, RAJDEEP was appalling. I do not want the visceral pain & misery of the victims of a terrorist strike,trivialized by the hyperbole of a bunch of armchair warriors. The TV channels forced me to get my info the following day from newspapers who were able to analyze the situation with clarity minus the rhetoric. Even the enfant terrible of Indian soap operas Ekta kapoor must be now thinking of making a foray into news!!!, and the talent is readily available in this case. I can imagine Tulsi broadcasting outside the Oberoi at least her anguish would be a tad bit more professional & believable. Even CNN at its most dramatic is not a patch on the likes of NDTV< INDIA TV or TIMES NOW. As the self appointed moral and political watchdogs of television news these reporters have succumbed to hubris and now believe that their voice is vox populi.!!!

The press needs a governing body to lay down laws and boundaries for coverage. Basic logic, if the armed forces (local police, army, navy etc etc) are in an operation of this sort, Visual media should show restrain and be aware of the sensitivity of the situation. Nevertheless theres a fine line here as most of us got all our information from the tv channels which means there needs to be one central body or person who can give u all relevant and needed information at the right time. Hope this too gets implemented.

what i fail to understand is that why something as common-sensical as this HAS TO BE HIGHLIGHTED. It just shows how silly our media/ government is. I got back to India a year ago... why? Becoz this is my country. However, today, i repent. I repent coz i see my close ones lose their lives, others who\'ve survived petrified. The sheer reason is CORRUPTION. To think of the fact that even the bullet proof jackets ordered WERE NOT BULLET PROOF is testimonial to how much they really care about our lives. While i can endorse the point above, i must also say that the Media is helping drive the cause ahead. Well the Govt couldve declared an emergency and asked everyone to stay put at home. That was not done. SO the media kept u informed and you could venture out in areas other than South Mumbai. I could go on and on... but the key issue is that we have inept and corrupt government officials that run this country, eat into the tax we pay and GET US KILLED.

There should be a clear law how the media should show coverage at the time of NATIONAL CRISIS including WAR,TERRORIST ATTACKS, EARTH QUACK, FLOOD & COMMUNAL RIOTS. They can do the recording of the incidence & show it letter on. There should be ban on LIVE COVERAGE. Government should frame the law for responsible telecast by media at the time of NATIONAL CRISIS.

Jay Jobanputra, Mumbai
This message goes out to the media: Money & business is not more important than the lives of the people. Asking a person who is just rescued out of a building with terrorists - how do u feel? What kind of a question is that.. are you guys so blind and selfless to ask these kind of pathetic questions??

\"In my Opinion we have a bigger threat from Media than the Terrorist or politicians. All the T.V News Channel will Just want to gain the TRPs & Money for their channel than to care for the Nation. When they Don\'t have News they will shown Nonsence kind of news They will abuse the cricketers or as for their their retirement Just forgetting what they have done in the past or they will show how a man walks on the water or a boy fall in the tube well ask for it saving to god or They will show all about our country Defense system and let the Terrorist to know fully about us. In the time of National Crisis such as 26/11/08 Terrorist attack they were just wanting to get ahead of other News channel by always saying this is exclusively shown in our News Channel so as to gain only their TRP\'s. Infact they got to Understand that the terrorist were watching the News to get the information for our Soldiers back up plan when Govt. of Maharastra Said them to Block the Footages on 28/11/2008 Evening. Then they Came to Know Such an idiot they are. The role of Media is to aware people what is happening around but they will make people aware how to make a bomb from various thing. INDIA TV was showing this 2,3 months ago. Infact the commandos are not allowed to speak their operation to any one but the News channel were in about to know from them how they kill the terrorists. But what could we do They are just like that. If the News channel has the authority they would have taken the Interview of the terrorists and asked them how they like when they were Killing so many people in India. So I think a Strict action should be taken to curtail them from not commiting such kind of Nuisance things again. They should have shown some remorse.\"

It might be a good idea to add to these requests that should any channel be found guilty, their licenses should be withdrawn for a few weeks - which hopefully should serve as strong reminder.

Sitting and watching all those proceedings live on TV channels, here in Europe, was really an added mess and woe to the security operations. To get every bit of higher ratings TV channels have always crossed there lines. There was one incidence when the terrorists were firing from the captured police jeep, one person was shot in his hand. The guys from TV channel were more interested in the forcing that shot person to show his hand rather than thinking of his pain and help him provide a medical aid. Apart from it every minute detail of movement of security forces was shown and TV channels can be also said to be as co-conspirators. They could have shot the footage and then made a documentry. They could have helped pacify people and stop spread of roumers rather than creating panic and fright. Even politicians were moment and popularity hungry and media was a fodder to that. We should draw lines where media should be stopped. It is similar or familiar to what you see on the channels that after a rape a victim is asked how do you feel after being raped?

We all are money mongers…be it the politician, the media or the common man (well, he doesn’t have a choice). Media tried to rip maximum benefit out of this horrendous incident.

Nauseating is the word! A lot of us have said what they felt but i want to highlight one specific instances which i thought was absolutely critical and which i strongly believe costed Moshe his parents. while Taj and Trident\'s cable connection were snapped, one is not sure if Nariman house\'s were done so til thursday afternoon, therby giving ample time for the terrorists held there to carry out their plans and eventually take the lives of the hostages. Self regulation is the last thing that ARNAB, BARKHA and RAJDEEP of the worlds will do. only a ruling should put an end to this nonsense.

Deepak Kalia, Bhiwadi
Dear Vishal, Kudos for you brave step, Today indian media needs to learn a lot. the freedom to express does not mean to express at the cost of someone\'s life. The Mumbai episode has shown how careless our media and I&B ministry is. To outshine each other the broadcasters never used there brains to restrain from revealing classified information. The media today thinks that they are no less than judiciary or police in any case. Just because they have mass representation they are free to say anything to anyone. I am with you and would like all the indians to join this chanpaign and request our honourable high court and supereme court to teach these mediawals a lesson in humanity. REgards Deepak Kalia

A degree of commercialisation of the news aired on the private news channels is inevitable, as none of them may be profitable if it was only news. But, blatant commercialisation & graphical dramatisation based on assumptions leading to security concerns should be avoided at all cost. Who knows, next somebody may put up cameras on the border and televise it!!!

Thank you, sir, for taking this issue up. Thousands of us watched the \'live coverage\' of the attacks horrified by the thought of its obvious consequences. However, along with the electronic media, the press should be questioned as well. I couldn\'t help but notice an article in the HT dated 2nd December, just above yours, which mentioned an IB officer giving out what is obviously sensitive information to HT about conversations that he was monitoring between the terrorists. This man requested anonimity as he wasn\'t authorised to hand out information to the media. The need to increase viewership or distribution seems to surpass the need to be responsible in a crisis situation like this. There is a serious lack of respect for space and privacy.

Monami Bhattacharya, Bangalore
Media is now milking the carnage and sensationalizing the issues without providing any tangible, sensible solution to the public. We need to be more alert and on guard now. Not only from terror attacks, but also from the politicians that would try to use this unfortunate event in their election agenda. And, from the media, who is feeding us tart.

There is a genuine reason behind the fact that we should not broadcast such things that can affect our security forces. It is needless to say that covering the finest of granularities while a military opeartion is going on could definitely prove to be a helping factor.

Mukesh Kumar, Kolkata
I strongly agree what Vishal has put in.Infact when I was watching the live telecast of the operations against the terrorism in Mumbai,I was discussing the similar points with my friends and I am completley against this type of act by elotronic media.There should be a law to stop the live telecast of any operation against the terrorism or any crisis which cause danger/security violence to our Armed forces and to the citizens.The meadia should be allowed to telecast only few footage/pictures which do not hamper the security and the respect of the nation,that too after the completion of the operations. I request all the people around the world to raise their voice against such act by the media.I am really thankfull to Vishal to drive such an initiative which is for our nation security.

i completely agree with vishal. we always look upon the media from a positive aspect in terms of keeping us updated on what is happening around. they are also appreciated by people, but rarely does anyone think about the negative aspect. i am glad that someone has not only given a thought but also raised the issue so strongly. i wish vishal all the best and support from all Indians..

Venkat, MUMBAI
Now the time has come for the adminsitration to take some strict action and to impose a law for the TV News channels broadcasting the live happenings. The government should impose a law which puts a fullstop on such immature activities performed by the TV News channels. We accept that it is an era of cut throat competition, but no one should forget their social responsibility ( saving the nation ). The Media should understand what they should telecaste live and what they should not. Media should also not telecaste such interviews where they are in direct conversation with the terrorists or the ones who are the victims of the unfortunate event when the operation is still on. The media should understand that whenever any politician or some unknown face does something very unusual it is for them to get into the lime-light and to become the center of attraction. Thus the media should not encourrage such events. This is a very heartiest request to the honourable Chief Justice of India, to put some kind of restriction on the TV News channels, on their broadcasting rights, just as, many of the nations world-wide already have.

They have caused enough panic, contribute to rumours and now hell bent to spoil relations between neighbours and superpowers.

Praveer Kashyap, Dhanbad
The mushrooming of 24 hr news chanels has created such a cut throat competition in the electronic media that they sensationalise every thing without considering the possible fall out and their own responsibility as a sane citizen. Like the political parties, they were seen out-doing one another on things like exclusivity and degree of risk taken by their reporters to cover the news. It\'s high time some one steps in and put a lid on these irrisponsible behaviours. A code of conduct should be in place to manage these channels. However, implementation of rules takes a back seat in our country which might prove a bottleneck here.

Shivam Gupta, MUMBAI

The media was and continues to be ridiculous. Whoever may die.. whatever happens.. all they need is something sensational.. This is not the only instance in which they are behaving like this. For them everything is news and nothing more. Media is considered to be one of the pillars of democracy. It is a pity that.. like all other pillars.. media too has failed in saving democracy. As Ambedkar said.. The \'Conspiracy of Silence\' by the media in many important issues and this \'Conspiracy of not being silent\' in issues where you need to be, ought to be noted. Till today.. even the highly educated believe that all that comes in media is true. We need to be more aware on this. Thanks to Vishal for initiating this most wanted campaign.

fully support whatever is written in the petition.

Debasish Paul, Mumbai
One point i would also like to add to the existing petition is that, TV Channels might want to defend themselves saying that, TV Sets in the Hotels (Taj and Trident) were blacked out and so the terrorists had no access to the live reporting of the media, but even if the TV sets are off, terrorists have sofisticated gadgets like satellite phones, mobile phones, through which they could easily stay in touch with their comrades in pakistan and know what is exactly happening on tv, they can get directly reported on the counter-resurgency operations since terrorists/accomplices in pakistan will have access to tv. So its best that media is kept out of such operations.

I have also seen at the time of riots. It always happens if some thing goes wrong at some part of country which is nothing to do with religious. Still few people try to make religious issue creates rumors. Actual Police force is capable to manage these issues at local level. But because of media repeatedly showing violence clippings. This issue becomes national issues and invites religious war among us… Even this needs to stop some where..

One of the channels after relaying the crucial live feed of the entire NSG Nariman House storming operation, has the audacity to later on say that they have stopped live relaying as they were concerned regarding the strategic nature of the operation. Also once the live feeds were stopped and there was a public build up in the colaba area, the reporter said that since the channels had stopped live relaying of the operation, the people had come on the street to witness the same. This is quite absurd as they seem to be justifying the live feeds.

Completely agree with the fact. I myself was looking through the entire news for hours and each and every channel was showing the exact motions of the NSG and the police force. This ( even if the media says was delayed ) I am sure would have been of some help to the terrorists. Actions should be taken so that such kind of help to the terrorists is not provided in the future by any action of the media

Ashwin Sashital, Mumbai

Media has been so irresponsible throughout the attacks without realising their own craving for bravado has jeopardised and even caused the death of so many by exposing the entire \"special operation\" of the NSG and the forces.

I fully support what Vishal has said in this petition. It is high time the media realises its responsibility towards the nation and stop treating such incidents as mere scoops.

I was wondering how the media could telecast all the current plans of the commandos and the ATS. Agreed, the media deserves to be lauded for their coverage informing the country about the current situation but the content has to be regulated. By telecasting each and every moment of our operation, the terrorists can act and move accordingly. So, we should stop this nonsense and we should value our commandos operation, the way they are working to bring peace to our country.

Rakesh Sumbly, Pune
I think that they should not shown whatever was happening . They should have updated after the things were over

I fear that may be the information about Karkare, Salaskar, and Kamte traveling in a police vehicle also leaked through the television and finally reached the terrorists as they have sat phones to talk to their terrorist friends who saw it on TV. If this is true then media is to be blamed for loosing our brave officers.

You are absolutely right I was feeling the same but still watching the News channel.Knowing the Taj & the Oberoi I was able to visualize the complete operation. We were told by one of the hostage that they were constantly getting information on Mobile/Satellite phones regarding the actions outside. The arrival of NSG & landing of security persons by Chopper were informed to the Terrorists thru mobile phones by some one watching our news channels in Karachi. The operation which should have been classified was thus made internationally Public.Thats what the terrorist wanted.In case of 9/11 also one terrorist had informed a TV channel about something exciting likely to be happening at Twin Towers.

Media - Specially Electronic TV Channels are more interested in their TRP rating not on the interest of innocent common people or our beloved Country. They should stop showing live coverage of such incidents. More over they should stop taking interviews of socalled \"Netas\" in every event of important or Non important occassions.

Harpreet Singh, Phagwara
it was indeed despicable and disgusting to see our media outlets jumping on the every little opportunity to distract officers from professionally carrying out their duties for an interview when you have heap of people waiting to be saved. It would have been helpful if they actually put all the names and numbers down on a piece of paper and delivered it to one of the personals on duty. The major focus of the terrorist organization is to get as many eyeballs as they can get. They could not have done this without our TRP and money hungry news outlets that provided live second to second coverage of the events accompanied with detail positioning of the officers and guests trapped inside. Aren’t there any ethics by which our news outlets have to abide by? This is a message for Barkha Dutt of NDTV that huffing and puffing would not make any story any more painful because the sight of numerous dead bodies and bombs exploding without the fear of any structural or human damage does the trick. I would also like express my gratitude to Mr. Vishal Dadlani for putting an initiative forwards.

Indian journalism has come a looong way.From the monopoly of everyday 1/2hr news on DD to now 24*7 innumerable news channles.A considerable big leap for media.But the fact that is hearbreaking is that the quantity of news channles and the quality of the news has grown inversely.News nowdyz,is just like prime time tele-soap.Full of garbage and nonsense.Which now makes me respect that childhood 1/2hr DD News.Compact & Precise. This is a very bold step taken by you Vishal and we\'re there with you. All The Best !!!

In the race to out - do each other and increase their TRPs, the news channel has acted in a very irresponsible manner. Live broadcast of the whole operation must have obviously helped the terrorist and have an upper hand in the deadly battle. I also fail to understand the need for broadcasting the \'live & direct\'phone call made by one of the terrorist who actually used our platform to terrorise us. Can India TV explain this?

Nitin Makasare, mumbai
I totally agree with Vishal\'s concerns regarding the manner in which this entire operation was relayed on TV. His fears are justified and need to be taken very seriously ...as he said i wonder how many of our security forces have been killed because the terrorist had information of their moves via the phones that they carried....the Honourable high court needs to put into place a system for the relay of news in such emergencies, because there are going to be many more..

Absolutely agree with Vishal. the way Media had covered the entire terrorist attack, gave a slight if not BIG advantage to the terrorirst as they had almost all the informations that were carried out against them by Indian Army. Though am not against Media (Moreover they did a FANTASTIC job in keeping us Updated bout each nd everything), but the questions asked by Vishal are justified.

Pran, Mumbai
carry on vishal you are doing great job

Media censorship should be enforced in such crucial situations. But the fact that the militants took the whole country to ransom is because some locals are hand in gloves with them and Indian Navy was caught napping.

There cannot be proper self censorship in the face of TRP competition. Hence there should be an accountability aspect legally enforced which acts as a deterrent and a directive to the News Media. Yes, all of us would love to know the ground reality. But not at the cost of jeopardising an operation of national interests and the lives of our men on the operations forefront.

Ishan Ratra, New Delhi
Spot on , the media needs to realise its responsibilty and the Govt should assert laws in such cases. Journalists give \" exclusive\" and jeprodise the lives of our armed forces, ordinary people and then they collect awards for supposed bravery !

I strongly agree with Vishal Dadlani, Honourable judges should pass strict direction to all the media\'s that media\'s should not Interfere (show/chat) anything related to any case which was under investigation by the Police/CBI, If Media finds any loopholes in investigations it can request the Court so that court can take action against the case not the Media. I saw many examples where Media made a Big Hungama\'s One recent Example: Title was \"Father killed his daughter\", After he was released by the court same Media has changed their story The same person whom the Media was giving wrong/right picture same person was shown with Sympathy and support. There are many incidents created by the News Media, which caused many deaths of innocents. Daily new Hangama\'s are created in every News Channels. One thing is BAN all the News Channels any way all the Entertainment channels are giving Hourly News.

The Media got carried away in the fight for being the first to carry the news and started many rumours while giving credence to many others. The Media is an inescapable part of our lifestyle now but that also means that they have to be more responsible towards the country. Freedom of Press should not give anyone the license to flout all ethics and put the Nation\'s safety in danger. This was not a Circus but was unfortunately treated as one by the Media. All the Media missed was Balloons and Streamers and maybe a Music Band.

That 10 terrorists, armed with sophisticated weaponry and a perverse ideology can enter a city like Bombay and kill 200 people is shocking, but, given the deeply divided world we live in, it is not something we should not expect. However, that 10 terrorists can hold a city under seige, a country under their thrall, and the entire world in terror, that requires much more -- it requires the kind of journalism and media we have witnessed over the last few days. The media acted as a very effective arm of terrorism with the shallow irresponsibility that I did not expect even of the worst yellow journalists in this country. Unregulated and uncensored, the media was the worst weapon these terrorists had at their disposal, and they used it to the fullest.

\"is news ko live aapke samne sabse pehle laya hai India TV\" Taj se direct report sabse pehle times channel\" \"CST ka khooni khel- aapke samne laya hai sabse tej Aaj tak\" Why do we say that medis has done anything wrong. After all the death of 100 people is a publicity funda for them. A big advertisement of they being the fastest. After all its a proof of efficient cameramen, a proof of efficient reportes,this attack is a proof os the number of efficient channels our nation has.this Khooni khel - A play is a proof of the efficiency of the government, efficiency of our great \"supreme court\", who\'s forgiven its own attakers. This is a achievement for our nation since we are perfectly following the path shown by our father- non violence, agar koi hamare ek gaal par marage to hum har sambhav prayas karenge use ye batane ka ki doosra gaal kaha hai. after all we are proud at the achievent to have the large army,huge security, great democracy and greatest leaders we have today

I was just shocked looking at amatureness shown by media.It was like terrorists had their loyal partner in all these foolish media channels.I dont think they know anything else rather than providing such breaking news and increase their TRP.Indian television has become easiest way to earn money and fame for these brainless ******** who are willing to sell pride of their own motherland for achieving all this.All this media channels need to be brought under control as soon as possible.Whatever is being telecasted over past few years on these chanels is most of the times ********. And they always give baseless news just in order to defeat their competitors in race of providing \"Sabse Tez\" news and afterwards get away with just a small apology.They are the ones which work as rumour spreading mediums and create fear in minds of Aam Janta. So I urge the authorities to take some firm steps and bring them under some strict law and control their behaviour.

what the media purports to be worthy of \"SANSANI-KHEZ\" & \"BREAKING NEWS\" is nothing but a cheap gimmick of some of the Indian news channels which feed like parasites on anything but actual worthy news... And honestly, these vernacular channels (India TV, Aaj Tak, Star News) are the bigger sinners.

Swara, Mumbai
Can you also include the newspapers in this. The print media is giving every minutest detail of the operation which should be with the government. Secondly, can there be an apeal to ban any film being made on terrorism. They should not be allowed to get any information on the carniege. Moreover, is there a film body to whom I can send a mass apeal that they should not act in any movie which is made on terrorism. Moreover, the tinsel town should stop interaction with Pakistani\'s and ask them to pressurise their government to take action against terror training camps in Pakistan

My opnion goes 50 -50.In this case media was to a extent rite.It did nt show anything wrong.In other cases they might have done what Mr Dadlani is saying. But I feel that this is not the time to see who is wrong and who is not.This is the time to get together and fight with the situation and take care that this doesnt happen again.Infact to do this the media is the best source to start with. Think about it guys

Thanks for taking this issue to the right people. I am aghast at how irresponsible and immature our media can sometimes act. What is more concerning is that what was done (blacking out news channel) on Friday wasnt done before. Why are we always so slow to act? We need our media to be self disciplined and responsible. I would also request all of you to think before casting votes. Remember we all have an option to go and get our fingers marked but still not vote anyone under Section 49-O. Lets bring some change.

It\'s very shameful on the part of Media to do this. Yesterday I was watching a news Channel where the a renowned TV journalist was taking credit of his channel of showing dead body of a victim. He said were first one to show this exclusive image. It\'s really shameful when they blame politicians and dont even think about themselves.

Swaroopa, Bangalore
Arihant Prasad, Dharwad
i think upto certain extent what you have said is correct. But if media don\'t provide the exact details to the people of the country then am damn sure people will either take this terror thing very lightly(just like the other bomb blast where we never used to get live show...just a bomb explodes and only the remaining after the explosion is available for us which does not impact much on the people to fight against the politics) or they might blame the media for not covering everything and provide the same to them. one more important point. whether media does disclose or no terrorist will be sure that once the cops,ATS,commandos,NSG comes to know about it they will for sure cover them from all the sides. its just general knowledge. when the media took the video of the commands outside the builiding doesn\'t make much difference, BUT if they try to cover what is going inside(i mean the commands at work) during the operation then its totally wrong on the part of media, which did not happen. so nothing much to worry about.

The insensitivity of the media is beyond belief. In the desire to garner maximum TRP, common sense has taken a back seat. It is time that they show some restraint. Some of the anchors claiming that they are just the messengers and they had done nothing incorrect was just pathetic

Dipankar Sinha, Mumbai
Vishal, I am with you for this nice cause. When I was watching live news only few channels were actually following this. Others were saying \"Humko Is operation ke baarey mei kuch discuss yaha nahi karna hai kyon ki yeh confidential matter hai.\" and then suddenly they started interrogating their REPORTERS.. \"Bol Kitne aadmi hai\", \"Bol Unka plan kya hai\".. It was not only irritating but it also shows that these n(onsense)ews channels have NO BRAIN. They are only bothered about their TRPs.

i don\'t whats wrong India. one of teh leading news channels asked to a hostage \"sir how do you feel now\"; what teh F@#$ is this ? i ma also a journalist, but we should raise our voice when they cross their limits.

Pramod Mathur, New Delhi
Just for your information: The Chairmen of Press Council of India have been writing to the Ministry of Information & Broadcasting over the past 10 years to amend the Press Council of India ACT 1978 and include the Electronic Media within the charter of the Council. The politicians have not responded because they want to keep the power within themselves for financial and political favours from the electronic media. I agree with you that the Supreme Court should interven and have the Government amend the Press Council Act and let the Press Council do it\'s job of enforcing ethics in TV journalism too. At present the Council can address the issues related to only Print Media since the ACT was written when there were no TV channels other than Doordarshan.

Finally as per my opinion instead of blaming anyone for the cause i think now its the time come to take some serious steps and should take some action so that any one (Either any country or any Militant) should think several times before even thinking of INDIA. Now India should take examples of AMERICA and should set another example for the whole world.

Media should be more sensible in the content that it\'s airing and particularly in situations like these. Am sure the information about the commandos landing on the terrace through the chopper would have gone to the terrorists as well (through their folks watching it live on the television) which reduces the advantage the commandos can gain.

We do not need a sinle politician we need common people who can work without fear(atleast we can save on the security expenses of our ministers)Infact this should be done with immediate effect.Let them first feel they are also common people,they will then understand the fears, may be then they will decide to act when their children, houses, relatives are all in danger.

Media in our country is taking undue advantage of the freedom given to them,so there is urgent need to bring about the reforms. So I request the hon\'ble court to do something about it. One point I can think about is allow them to broadcast only 2 hours in morning (7AM-9AM) and 3 hours in evening (7PM -10 PM). If we see the CNN or BBC, they so much responsible and they do not run any news like movie shows. Also I agree that by running live pictures of such attack or similar situation, media has put the ARMY men or commandos exposed and risking their lives and putting the entire operation into danger. So it must stop playing live broadcast for such things. Another solution is to delay the telecast by 1 to 2 hours. I also wish to know that we pay so much of taxes for infrastructure,development,security etc. so where that money goes to? Since we witnessed the deadly attack which is complete failure of all governments,security agencies, IBs etc. So why not recover all the damage from the same people? Govt and ministers must be made to pay from their pocket. They must be accountable for this. These politicians won\'t understand the situation when they move in bullet proof/signal jammer vehicles, with 10-20 commandos around them, and 100s of policemen around them. I also want to make one point here that, when ever a terrorist is caught and who is not from our country, then he should not have a chance to re-appeal if any court gives a decision as he is an intruder, illegal person in India. But at the same time only the government (in case if they feel that justice is not done) should have right to appeal in higher court!! Also the outsiders/terrorist who are caught, an automatic non-bailable offence should be applied to them. Jai Hind!!!

Rakesh Ramchandani, Mumbai
totally agree. also the way the commentators said that why couldn\'t the politicans from delhi jetpool, similarly why couldn\'t the channels pool in their resources and have one team at each location and all channels given the same feed. why was there a huge crowd of news reporters (about 3 from each channel minimum and i dont even have the huge count of channels we have) each wanting to get their own byte in. but i guess its all about blaming the other person. kudos vishal for actually doing something rather than just talking like the rest of us, me included. but would also like to point out to one and all that we ourselves are to blame for this tragedy, our attitude which should change now. this callous and indifferent attitude is reflected in the acts of the news channels and reporters as well as the politicians.

Medai is overly going beyond the Freedom of Press. Such Operation should not be telecasted until that Operation ends. Also the Government should concentrate on security and the rights of Media and other public issues, rather concentrating on Dirty vote bank politics.

Sunder Ram Korivi, Mumbai
Safety first. Moreover, CST was not covered adequately, perhaps because there was no live action. But that\'s where Mumbaikars actually live, not just the Taj and Oberoi.

Puneet Choudhary, Bangalore
The LIVE FEEDS on TV was more of a challenge b/w the News Channels than giving information to public. It was like which channel is showing the pictures & plans first. On top of this we even heard this \"THE OTHER NEWS CHANNELS ARE STEALING OUR PICTURES\". I mean please people there were Soldiers fighting for us and you want to compere for live feeds, and in the process \"Give Away Important and Valuable Information & Strategies??\" THIS IS NOT ACCEPTABLE, the Law book has to be changed some where!!

We all need to believe that we can make a difference and try our best even if its in a small way. Thanks Vishal for taking the initiative

My cousin, a NSG commando, was involved in the operation. When I saw that the news channels were showing live coverage of the operation, I felt genuine fear for his life. Where is the morality, resposibility and restraint here, much touted words that the media has used in questioning the politicians?

Can we please have a law to prevent this dog eats dog world of media competition. The way things turned out during our commando operation was really unfortunate. But I am sure, if our news channels had acted more responsibly by not showing sensitive information and plot of the operation, we would have had at least some more survivors. In most likelihood it must have assured faster solution.

This was totally disturbing, when your forces are laying lives for you and you are putting them in more danger by showing everything and all locations they are in. The media acted nothing better than a block buster movie. The Media also would give out all the information and then say without saying much, But they already have given all the information. Also the media put the local citizens in danger. When the operations were going just to get their face on the TV the common man was on the roads near the terror zones, when they should have been at home and not causing any more concern for our forces. The media definatly should have some self censorship and understand the seriousness of the issue.

Pradeep Jhawar, Mangalore
Viswanathan N, Bangalore
I support this cause as I myself had this same doubt while watching the TV channels. It is good to get information, but if it is sensitive it should be withheld in the interest of the nation. When the Vote of confidence took place recently in Parliament, some TV channels claimed to have footage of sting operation of cash changing hands to vote for/against the government. The same TV channels mentioned they are withholding this recorded things till they are sure whether or not to telecast it. This is a much smaller case compared to national security during Mumbai attacks. So, it is expected out of the media to have a limit in their coverage during such crisis times.

Anil Kumar Bhat, Bangalore
I believe in Right to information and all this stuff, but we should have some curbs for the media, both print as well as electronic. Sensationalizing of news to be avoided and some restrictions on broadcast needs to be imposed.

RAKESH JHA, ROURKELA
I can`t agree more. I too simply can`t understand whether the media has no sense at all & even Govt. took little bit initiative, only when the damage was done. These medias should be pulled in the court , so that things are not repeated. I strongly support you Vishal , go ahead brother , all india is with you

I strongly agree and have some points to make 1. If telecasts from any channels are deemed to compromise with the security of the country (or) to inadvertently provide an advantage to our enemies, then such channels should be lifted off air immediately and also banned depending on the severity of the offence 2. The regulatory authority that takes care of safety in high rise building should add another clause for anti-terror guidelines. (this is bcos the terrorists were moving wherever they want inside the building- we should curtail that by this guideline)

farhana, Mumbai
Please be responsible of what you print or show... by being overly enthusiastic you are giving fodder to the miscreants who will use it to hurt the soverign and secular fabric of the country

Saurabh Tiwari, Kolkata
I myself was shocked to notice how the terrorists could have profited from Indian media. For all you know, they may have included this tendency of media in their plan of action, to know their own stance at each moment of their operation.

I totally agree with Vishal. I watched the live coverage on CNN, BBC and Zee and was horrified to know that the terrorists had blackberrys and were following this worldwide coverage, thus putting both our security forces and the people trapped inside at a huge risk to their lives. The sensationalism of the news by some channels was in bad taste too. I hope this petition is accepted.

While it may not have been intentional, it was definitely foolish and selfish to keep announcing \"we are the only channel to bring you live coverage...\", while the reporter and cameraman was totally unprotected with not even a helmet for safety. Couldn\'t some body protection be provided on the second or third day! Yes, we are all to blame. As veiwers, we should have called up the channels and insisted that live coverage should be stopped imediately.

As a media person, I too was aghast and ashamed at the drama the newscasters were making out of the scenario. Another requirement is a time stamp on all visuals of such events - one has no way of knowing how \'live\' a telecast is of a blast or a fire and it does nothing to ease the viewer\'s mind because one always presumes things are at their worst. Its appalling that even at times such as these, ratings are the most important thing for news channels.

It is really disheartening to see the failure of our State Government despite repeated warnings issued by the IB.

I was aghast to see how our Home Minister R.R.Patil was not ready to take the moral responsibility for the Mumbai massacre and not ready to resign.I wonder if this man had come in this world sitting on the HOme minister\'s chair. Let us all now throw out these Dirty Politicians and cleanse our system.

Aniruddha Joshi, Mumbai
The careless behavior of media can not be tolerated under the name of “Freedom of the Press\". The live telecast of nariman house operation should not be telecast by respecting the NSG director’s request but TRP of the channel much more matter for them than the innocent people.

They are as much a national shame as the incident itself.

I was shocked that the news channels were allowed such extensive and irresponsible coverage of the entire tragedy that unfolded. 60 odd hours of non-stop coverage of every tactical detail of the operation at all 3 locations...and no one stopping the irresponsibility. WHY?? In this age of electronic media and instant gratification it\'s sad to see such a lack of sensitivity and responsibility displayed by the media, who everyone relies on to give unbiased un-sensationalised and non-inflammatory reporting, to not realise when they are endangering lives. I sincerely hope the judicial system recognises the need for a law to be passed that will help avoid the same scenario in future situations.

I fully agree that the electronic media needs to gag itself sometimes as their intention to merely cover and not create panic goes down the drain in their eagerness to compete with each other. The brief blackout of news channels when the rumours of firing at CST started was the best step taken.

Vital Reddy Guntaka, Norwich,UK
Yes, media is the one who is indirectly encouraging these acts and making the nasty buggers hero\'s by showing all these to the public. Definetly they need to change the way they are dealt in such circumstances and is a good initiative to take it forward.

The media went over board and completely overlooked the basic ethics of Journalism at occasions more than once: 1. Flashing in accurate information and helping spread rumors. 2. Leaking out information critical to the national defense of the country through their visuals (This is a punishable offense under Indian Media Laws) 3. Attempts to create social disturbances through showing content of an sms demanding the opinion of a political leader with a history of inflammatory speeches. (Punishable offense- also who can justify the credibility of an sms??? Is the channel ready to take responsibility????) Get back to your books in case you feel you have forgotten these thumb rules of Journalism

Perminder Singh, Delhi
Yes, you r right.

Saurav, Kolkata
Tragedy in Mumbai not only left the entire country shocked and angry, but also exposed the hypocrisy of many of the audio-visual and print media companies. In one hand they are appealing to people of India unite and do their bit to defeat terrorism by conducting a series of programs, they are helping the terrorist and making it difficult for the security forces by showing commando operation live on the other hand. Not only once, they are showing it repeatedly, which is likely to provide the terrorist with an opportunity to study carefully and come more prepared when they plan to hit next time to do a massacre. Going by the degree of sense of responsibility shown by the media in past, honestly I don\'t expect them to behave in a matured way this time. But it is the duty of the authority to keep them at a distance during such operation by security forces, from where they won\'t be able to shoot or report live. The legal system should be properly equipped support the authority in the wake of hue and cry which will surely follow in the event of such action (like human rights violation, RIA, and so on...). I fully support this initiative which is for the benefit of the people who risk their lives for saving common people like us. The media sector should not feel deprived if they are not allowed to show anything and everything live for greater reason, because this kind of awful terrorist attach has already provided them with enough material to do business on in the next few months. So they may be among the happy few in this country at this point, who had some kind of benefit out of this kind of audacious attack on our country.

The media should maintain self-discipline amidst great human crisis. It was painful that all TV channels during the course of the live broadcast of Mumbai\'s terror claim: \"We bring you the first pictures\" or \"We have an exclusive report\" in a bid to out-do each other. I have read the other responses to Vishal\'s petition and agree that instead of a live telecast, a delayed broadcast could have been done with emphasis on the injured instead of the commandoes tactics.

Subhash sukumaran, Palakkad
The way the media behave in such crisis is highly condemnable. Because at some point the very act of showing the such events live is endagering the life of someone in the operation. We the majoriy,as a nation do have any value for any indian life lost as compared to say israel or us. So i hope we all realise the gravity of our actions and do something about it.

Padmini S., Mysore

BBC and CNN were capturing coverage through their Indian channel partners. Some of the clippings were nothing short of frivolous and illogical. They made a mockery of our nation to a large extent.

Arun, Pune
Lets hope our Tv channels mature soon.

Arun Kumar, Hyd
This is wrong.

Samarth, Pune
Indeed the efforts of our media channels were way beyond any word of appreciation, they did everything possible for keeping us informed, aware and updated about the whole attack. However, there surely is a need of a law/ code of conduct, to make sure that their priceless efforts do not in-turn assist terrorists to improvise their plans and actions. We as a nation, should together accept this stand from the media that they would not be able to show the live feeds until such attacks are completely under control. I therefore strongly support the above petition but do not find a need for taking actions against channels who would have broken the conduct, simply because of the reason that there did not exist any code-of-conduct till date. I am sure once this is made (jointly with the armed forces, the govt. and the media personnel), all channels will stand by it, for they themselves are looked up-to as ‘Responsible Indians’.

Rahul, Bangalore
I fully endorse the view forwarded by Vishal. In the name of freedom of press media has crossed all the limitations of morality as we have experienced in the past & now is putting the lives of people at stake in the name of sensationalization of events. Though I agree that our demoralized armed forces still use the vintage equipment, techniques & technology (never to accept & acknowledge the facts for their PRIDE comes in the way or some BABU or Politician cooling his heals in New Delhi doesn\'t let them) to defend the common man against the highly motivated & technologically superior terrorist. Today just to improve their TRP\'s, as I feel the news channels are no more than the soap opera relaying channels in this country of ours in the process acting as a hindrance/ risk to the operating personnel on the ground. We need to put checks & measures in the place on the LIVE Media to ensure our advantages are not lost on the ground on account of their actions to sensationalize news. Regards Rahul

THIS KIND OF INCIDENTS SHOULD NEVER OCCUR AND STRICT ACTION SHOULD BE TAKEN

Anant Joshi, Pune
Media Sucks!!!

Ritu Maheshwari, Mumbai
I strongly agree with Vishal. It is time that News channels realize their social and moral responsibility. I fail to digest that a terrorist, fairly aware that his life is in danger, is comfortably giving a live interview to this news channel... Does he have all the time in the world to do this?... In this whole incident, the only people who were helpful were the commandos. If we can\'t even support them support us, then we do not have any right to expect any help from them..I salute all the heroes of the nation who lost their lives in the attempt to be a savior for others.

Suranjana Bhattacharya , Mumbai
I think Media should know the responsibility & scope of their job. Live Telecast is necessary to make the people aware of what has been going on but it should be delayed by sufficient time. Our soldiers are already loosing their lives for poor politicians so I request to media not to share their solders to carry the blame of killers.

Keshaw Patel, PUNE
The worst thing in india is our MEDIA. The are tightly busy with bloody Sharukh and Salman, If any girl do love marriage they make it national news. I never understand, our media is making news about DAUD or they advertizing him. The present daud as the hero. All media and news channels are just bullshit. I locked all news channles at my home except DD News.

Rachel, Hyderabad
The electronic media needs to learn to use some discretion in what they are broadcasting. During one footage that was aired time and again, the camera was focused on one particular officer the whole time. If something were to happen to that officer and/or to his family, would the media take responsibility??? I think its time we pause and ponder on whats more important - maintaining a sense of security in as much as we can, or increase TRPs in the name of \"Live\" coverage!!! Enough is Enough! Its time to use our brains at least now - Else, like all the media channels say, its going to be \'too little, too late\'.

saurabh, Bangalore
I appreciate ur proactiveness.

I completely agree with Vishal.I guess the media in today\'s world has gone far ahead by taking shelter behind the Freedom of Press slogan.It was an irresponsible act.

Troyee, Kolkata
I fully agree with Vishal and want this petition to be accepted and stop the detailed broadcasting of these serious issues by law, shown as a piece of enetrtainment to gain popularity of their respective channels. I have started hating the media now. In the name of information/news they ar hendering our national security, sentiments of those specially who have lost their near and dear ones.

Sanket Sawant, Mumbai
Naresh Mani, Bangalore
Vishal, Rock on, we are with you. But, I think it is also the responsbility of the Police to cordon off the locality within a periphery of 200m so that no one can come anywhere near the area.

Shaun Sokhi, Mumbai
Will it be that easy??

Karthik Murali . H, Chennai

Vishal is speaking for a large majority. Right to inform can never supercede right to life and safety of nation. Behind its altruistic facade the television media is primarily driven by commercial competitiveness (read TRP). It is willing to go to any length to achieve this, even if it compromises national securiy. Additionally, as all of us noticed, they spread a lot of misinformation in the name of \"breaking News\" not bothering to verify before broadcasting. I fully endorse the petition.

sandeep nandrajog, New Delhi
I heard one of the reporters asking about the \"condition of the dead bodies\" from the NSG chief. That was plain stupidness......for the rest of it i totally agree with the petition. The media has and has been crossing the line and they have to be put on a leash.

i have just 1 small request here, can you (to all) please ban our very own idiot media for just 1 year just to see the change. these channels have been here for more than a decade and trust me they have not done any good to anyone so it hardly matters if they can just lay back just for country\'s sake for an year. i am preety damn sure that most of the people won\'t even mind and will happily agree to it. also i seriously request all rhe politicians to do their work like a common man just for a change and we all with be amazed with the results (positive for sure). problem is not with pakistan or terrorists they are just doing their work for which they are paid and trust me they are doing it with full heart and mind, but here the problem is with we all who knows how to blame and point others for anything and everything. i seriously request you all as a \"aam aadmi\" that if you seriously liked my idea and thoughts and if you think that i am capable enough to think about our very own ex- sone ki chidiya (we made it ex shamefully -- INDIA) then please let me be in.

Lakshmana Maddineni, Bangalore
I am accepting this.

Eshwar Natarajan, Delhi
I feel that media should show some restraint when it is required and should not take undue advantage of the freedom provided to them. I hold media programming heads guilty to some extent for the loses that happened due to their irresponsible acts.

I agree with the fact that the news channels were also responsible for such a delay in this operation.... But what has happened has happened... The public ,the fellow citizens of our country always have a poor memory.. they to tend to forget things easily and they keep on doin the same mistakes... Please!!! My fellow citizens it is also our job to safeguard the nation... Its not only The Security\'s and The Government\'s Job... Stand United... Fight Terror... May The Wounded Heal early and the Souls reach the heaven\'s Gate.... God Bless India...

I strongly stand by Vishal and feel its high time for the media to understand their responsibility towards the people. Media needs to understand the outcomes of the news they telecast, its not only about TRP and money - it is about lives. It’s time for us to take an initiative to change the system. Vishal kindly let us know if we need to come to the court.

Media should be restrained in broadcasting sensitive information. Besides what was Police doing there. They could have prevented the broadcast.

Shadab Nawaz, Meerut
Me totally agree with you. In my personal views, it was a preplanned POLITICAL STUNT. India also needs a HITLER, who can slain all these politicians. But what ever it was, media didn\'t play good role. INDIAN MEDIA is moreover play moneymaking games.

Sushma G, Mumbai

I totally agree with the points vishal has mentioned above. I strongly feel that many information was in this way been passed by our news media to the terrorists and this indirectly means helping the terrorists in their operation.

We really need to take action against the culprits but the more important is to deal with those who come by \"VOTES\" and doing nothing. Second should be those who came with \" BOATS\".

I think whatever vishal is doing is absolutely right.Tv channels were in a way acting as a third eye for those terrorists.Who knows many of our martyrs might have lost life because of this.

I was feeling the same as I watched the news (all english news channels).On Times now news, a israeli counter terrorism expert said \"I think it is wrong to show each & every move the commoandos make, also he said that by doing so \"the terrorist outfit is gaining more publicity, which they want\".

I seriously agree that these incidents should not be shown LIVE since it can mentally affect a lot of people and may also false impression. Also, we have the younger generation whose mental growth would be affected if such sights are shown on television.

Devi, ahmedabad
I firmly believe media could have played important role instead of showing blood sheds, dead bodies and constant updates, they have opened all the secret of operation. I think there should be ban on live coverage by media on such occassion.

Here\'s hoping this code of conduct will change the way we in India receive and form opinions on the way news is delivered to us. Many TV viewers do not realise that TV channels and even News reporting are creatures driven by economic and political considerations - all that is fed to us as news is assumed to be the ONLY way to perceive the reality around us. News thus, often leads us to form faulty opinions and skewed points of view. This code of conduct will hopefully set the process straight, and if and when another crisis occurs, the victims will be put first and the news channels and profit motives, last. Next time around, may the real stories, and not the concocted ones, be heard.

Rekha Varma, Bangalore
This is a very valid point - the media now has become king of kings - agreed we as citizens are required to get details but how and at whose cost is the question.

Deepak Goyal, mumbai
I was equally disturbed by the fact that news neither of the channel, armed forces, goverment or other responsible agencies...could take this issue even when this operation was on.. Please make sure we discourage this kind of a thing in future... god forbid.. if the need be Deepak

I second your views. The aftermath of 26/11 attacks have reared another monster i. e media which has become more daring but also has been acting after the attacks as a wild elephant on the rampage. Cant we all in this time of retropspection be more better law abiding citizens of india. Lets build a better law abiding citizens where we do not feel affronted to given security checks and do not pay bribes and are not afraid to ask for answers to govt. officials.

I am in complete agreement.I do believe that the media was completely ignorant to the dangers there news-reports could be posing to the lives of the innocent at the sites. 1)Could SOMEBODY..ANYBODY tell me why in God\'s name would they broadcast sniper positions to the public (ontop of the gateway of india,the fire snorkel opposite taj herritage). 2)Could the media not show some sensitivity to those survivors who made it out of a 60 hour ordeal by not hounding them while they walked away from the sites.You could see the anguish on the faces of the survivors (especially foreigners)

M S Chauhan, bhilai
Channels which were supposedly showing live interviews with terrorists were giving a powerful platform to them to carry out their anti-india propaganda.They were helping the terrorists in spreading panic and fear all over the country. Images and voice of terrorists,and live images from places where operation is on should be banned.

Well this is so unfortunate that our own media were helping terrorist to carry out their plan so smoothly.

We need to stop this and I am always there to support this cause.

To be frank enough with you guys I am really fed-up and thinking of leaving India, which i dont want to do.

I think \"Freedom of Expression\" is the much misued word today. First comes the security of Indians our fellow countrymen everything comes after that & by irresponsible reporting these news channels jeopardize the lifes of our people & create fear and panic among us. Its high time that some regulations should be framed for these news channels.

Manik, Pune
Agree. New channel must understand and stay in there own limits.

sarita kadam, kudal
Abhishek Shinde, Pune
There should be partial limits on channels on live telecasting of such incidents. Media should understand their responsibility, and should work sensibaly. Media makes one piller for the democrosy, its not wise to work without them. I think the current news are lack of integrity. One channel give one news with some details and the other gives the same news with different details. This many times leads for rumours. This also should be noted here. Thank you, Abhishek

Sheldon Aranjo, Mumbai
...with rights come responsibility! its time the media fraternity introspects as well.

During the Kargil war a artillery gun was fired by our soldiers for the sake of camera by the reporters request and it was destroyed by the enemy forces along with some soldiers. But still we don\'t restrict media from doing such insensitive things, HOPE this succeeds.

Gopal Sharma, Mumbai or Bombay, whatever you may call
There seems to be lot of misplaced anger against general \'political class\'. Lets undestand that this is necessary evil. I think 2 most important things today is to make Mumbai - a separate state or union territory for better admin and response, so that it is run by urban compulsions. Second, we must build institution for entry in to \'politics\'. All so called Young politicians are nothing but sons-daughters of exisitng political class.. a la-deaora, dutts, scindias, gandhis of the world

Abhinav Dhar, Delhi

Vaishna Roy, Chennai
I am a media person and I totally agree that the media in such cases are is useful or helpful; just a pain in the neck. Not to mention immensely insensitive as when they collar traumatised victims or family members of killed/maimed people and ask \"Could you tell us just how you are feeling right now?\" So, yes, the right to information comes with duties attached, which ought to be recognised by common sense. Failing which, these need to be enforced by a ban.

sujan, Bangalore
I am with you...but if our Law or policitcal system is gng to take it serious only with the number of ppl who respond to this petition..Then I dont mind doing a proxy as many numbers as needed...

Not only normal individuals must be signing this petition but also the press guys. we dont know what the outcome of the efforts put behind this petition may be.

Wake up. we want you in right cause.

Shirly Francis, Mumbai
I am very happy by the initiative taken by Vishal. Let us all unite and combat this.

It\'s our right to know what\'s happening in such situations but it should not be to an extent that it ends up in helping our enemies.Media should be more responsible in broadcasting and should understand their responsibilities beyond increasing their TRPs

sushma, hyderabad
Deepak, Banagalore
I totally agree with the view protrayed here. The News channels must respect the work being carried out by our armed force and try to help them by not revealing any sort of details.

i agree.a lot of policemen died..because the news people were showing...the terorists, behind which tree, which car..were these people hiding...media has to be accountable...we need new rules for the media....sine they themselves cant control....n will keep looking for exclusives.....did u see barkha dutt?shameful......she kept putting the mike on the por womans face..when she had come out of oberoi..after 3 days....these people do not deserve the padma bhushans..

Hasan, New Delhi
This is what most of us thinking but did nothing. I will definetly pass this to as many people as i can. I feel very sad that our own media just for the sake of the name of their channels can go to such extent that they don\'t even bother about the lives of people and the NSG person. Thank you Vishal for taking this petition to court.

Punish those bloody Media people with hardest punishment. Also I would like Human Rights people to take strong action against All Media Channel Owners for sending those very young (stupid) guys/girls on the site to cover the attack live.

Sridhar, Vijayawada, AP
Both politicians and media have competed in extracting maximum mileage out of terror attacks in Mumbai. Shame on them.

Neelay, Pune
I totally agree with this. A law should be drafted such that media will not be allowed to show military, anti-terrorist activities and security systems/arrangements of various locations. The I & B ministry should take notice of this.

I started watching the new channel just after india won the match. I was shocked to know that india is been victimized by terrorism SEVENTH/EIGHTH time in past 5 months. I was trying to figure out the intencity of the attack and what all broadcast followed than after was a real shock. 1. Gun fires in mumbai is reported at 7 different places 2. Blast in Oberoi. 3. blast in Taxi at XXX location 4. Gunfire and grened explosion at TAJ 5. CST, VT, leopardo etc etc..... Now comes the limit.... Media people jumps in to the police activity and started broadcasting the live operation as it is a trailor of any hit movie. Than comes the master strock. Our honerable home minister Mr Patil him self revealed that NSG is going to take over the operation at TAJ :) they will be reaching to mumbai in another 2/3 hours. And so called active media broadcated it live. How fair is this to nation ?? I don\'t know how much did it impacted the over all operation. I was having the same feeling. I coudn\'t sleep on WEDNESDAY night and was whatching all these injustice to our nationional secirity. AFTER TWO FULL DAYS only ZEE NEWS started telling that we wiil not show this live coverage in favor of national secirity others well still showing all of those which wouldn\'t have been even licked. Worst scenarion was at NARIMAN HOUSE. Along with MEDIA i also found lot of local PEOPLE watching the live action. Lot of energy of police and army was wasted in managing all this. How fare is it? This is not the responsibility of only media but also the Police , national security agencies, people, Home minister state n centre and each and every INDIAN to make sure that national security is not kep aside EVEN WHILE PERFORMING OWN DUTY. I think this is a good start and am sure thet media and governmetn must have learned soemthing out of what ever has happened in last week.

1). Please don\'t delay in punishing the only terrorist we have captured.

Well, It\'s really sad we are living in society where TRP is more important than human life. I really appreciate the initiative and fully support it. Actually by law Defence Planned are not to be shared across civilians [learn from a movie \"Zameen\"], but this time it was open for all & available to everyone.

Ravi, Hyderabad
good step to bring some regulations over news media. news media has to safeguard nation\'s interest first than to any other thing.

Preeti Kumari, Pune
Vishal you r absolutely correct. There should be some laws against the live telecast of such terrorists attacks.

Vipul,
Venkiteswaran.p.V, Mumbai
Aboslutely correct and thank you for taking up this issue. Even otherwise I have felt the media crating a hype on several issues.

Neha Deshmukh, Mumbai
I could not agree more! It angers and saddens me at the same time! It is high time that some action is taken against these channels...so such a thing never repeats in the future.

Srikanth, Visakhapatnam
The media needs to be reined in...it needs to be told of it\'s limitations and not expose the ideas of men in battlefield and put Jeopardize their lives

Shashank Tripathi, New Delhi
Sensationalisation of this act and making the terrorists sort of celibrity (even if in negative sense)is highly deplorable. It should stop and filthy news channels should learn a lesson.

Sunil. N, Bangalore
Providing a close view of the arms carried by the NSG, running behind the NSG for soundbytes & showing the faces of commandos after the operation was over, is something that did not go down to well with me. But I liked the way the NSG handled the media, they were really not bothered about the kind of attention, the TV crews where giving them. they went about their jobs like real pro\'s - hat off to them.

Ekta Waghela, Mumbai
I completely agree with the petition. Now the media is continuosly divulging all the information that is obtained from the terrorist that got caught, our intelligence bureau should also act more responssibly and should not give in to the pressure by the media. The public can wait till the investigation gets over, the info obtained might help the enemies to safeguard themselves as they know which way the investigation is headed..

Santosh Ghalsasi, Pune
All news channels should realise what they are doing to attract the viewers and increase TRP. They are helping the culprits. I fully support this.

Neha Sinha, Mumbai
Neetu Rawat, Faridabad
News Channel just want to increase their TRPs, be it a situation like we have few days back or be it is the case of any person- they just care about their TRPs and nothing else. It is we people who have given such a freedom to the media/politicians. We just sit and watch and comment on it while sitting in our room or in a group. But hardly any initiative is taken by a RESPONSIBLE CITIZEN of our country. I appreciate the initiative taken by Vishal and just hope it will do something.

Sorabh Baxi, Mumbai
Gurbir Singh Kaberwal, Mumbai
I believe its a matter of grave concern that despite repeated request from the govt.(I&B),the news channels did not refrain from showing the live Operation.this should be immediately investigated by the govt.

Joyeeta Patpatia, Mumbai/Bangalore
Rajesh Aruchamy, coimbatore
its high time gov. set up a apolitical independent regulatory body to streamline the news channels

Bhanu, Bangalore
Media must learn to act responsibly.

Tarannum, Mumbai
I agree. I went through the same experience and managed to sms NDTV about it. Thankfully they somehow made an effort to cover it up by trying not to show where the commandos were. I think the channels must act with a little more sensibility and foresight! And of course I don\'t see the point in asking relatives of victims how they feel or even hounding the survivors for information. Give them a break! Thanks Vishal. We need more people like you.

ashwini sunkara, hyderabad

What Vishal is doing 100% right.These channels are responsible for the longtime taken for the whole operations to get over what with their interveiws and guests and broadcasts.But I would not blame the channels for what they have done.They are there to do that only.No Pun intended.The absolute blame lies with the I & B Ministry,The Home Ministry & the Defense Chiefs.At the start itself when they realised things are going out of hand the whole operation is snowballing into a major problem they should have muzzled the channels then and their itself. The ministries have failed us totally and the channels got a ball room to cause mayhem. The audacity of conducting an interview plus the major talk shows with the society cheap jackasses.I particularly remember one such jackass and he is a regular yeller in the TV Channels.This bloke has a opinion on everything under the sun.The guy does not understand that the moment he opens his gutter foul smells comes out and to top it seems he heads a Ad agency in Delhi.He has silvery hair and is a loud mouth of the best quality.The he was blasting the Cops,the politicians and the administration I certainly felt the country would have been a better place to live if it was run by him.The channel gave him full space and footage to present his number.Was this the right time to accuse the Govt instead of helping it in handling the situation.My Govt is full of jackasses but then where are the wise guys that these jokers point figures at. Yes Vishal what you have done is right and you have my complete support. It is my prayer to the Learned Judges that they understand the gravity of the situation and also all the future such situations and create such a law or frame work so that the media understand its responsibilties and obiliges within those limits.

Dear Vishal, I have the same feeling as you put on this petition. This was not a T20 match or olympic games for which there was a live telecast. In fact, the media was presenting it as a BREAKING NEWS. Was that really a BREAKING NEWS. Media should rethink this slogan.

A.Ravindra Babu, Bnagalore
They can give some news about the operation, but ot a minute by minute live coverage.

It\'s a real shame what our media is doing. They can AIR anything just for the sake of higher TRP\'s. As my office is located in CST I faced the panic when media aired a news of firing at CST on friday noon which was a rumour. The situation was unexplainable, Many people had a fear & unending questions in mind.. what will happen or will b able to see our family again?????. What media did for that panic created by them, nothing just 1 word sorry & evrything is over... I\'ll also say that mixing 2 irrelevant issues like MNS things at this time is foolishness. What Raj Thackeray was suppose to do there at the time of shoot out??? And one of the important thing among all is not a single politician is worth our precious vote.

We are the biggest enemies of our own country. We just need spice in everything. I sincerely feel that we need to first put our country in place, make it safe and secure and then think about money, popularity, etc. The media is crazy for scoop and only focuses on negative things. Whatever negative happens is on the front page of the paper. Achievements by people are in the supplements. Come on people. Selfishness will kill us. Its our country. Lets stop corruption and selfishness. I am not asking you to start loving everybody you see. But be considerate to the people and make India a better place to live.

The media has always been at the receiving end for blowing things out of proportion,why were they allowed to park themselves so close to the Taj,Oberoi....infact there was a news of mediapersons getting hurt..were they trying to be heroes?? it is inhuman see the live footage at the risk of innocent hostages trapped inside...

Yadnesh Sazngiry, Goa
I am in total support of the fact that media shouldn\'t have telecast the details or for that matter any informatino about the Indian army\'s strategy. Secondly after the operation was over reporters stormed into the Taj and showed off that they were the first to go in there. With such a horriffic incident having happened they were more bothered about who reaches inside Taj first. I guess the police should ask the media as well as general public to be beyond a radius of 200 meters from the operation site. If they don\'t abide by this rule they should be taken into custody. Thirdly media should have limits on their freedom. They cannot just broadcast any and everything....

It could be that the real time TV footage shown by these channels are the reasons for our country losing those brave soilders.

Same is with media, they make money out of it and for that they just sensationalize the whole incident for there own benefit. Just not these kind of incident but media should be given some code of conduct for each type of news.

On the heading of breaking news whatever media say that has to be 100% confirmed news, because many a times the news given by one channel has not supported by official sources and the channel also don\'t take the responsibility to prove that they have not given false news. At the time of attacks one channel was asking about some local issues that where are those leaders, but this channel don\'t know that those leader are more responsible and mature enough than this media that\'s why they kept their mouth shut and did not responded those channel and try to keep peace. These channells don\'t know on important thing that when outsider attack on us we are all Indians not Bihari, Marathi or any other linguistic just Indian and that\'s the spirit we have. All these channells are always partial and specifically against one community.

Jay Shah, Pune

This issue is someting everone talks of from quite sometime but no-one took the lead. This bad practice of televising/inetrviewing live only helps the terrorists--> it was started by Barkha Dutt during Kargil war I believe and at that time too it might have resulted in loss of Army lives. Thanks Vishalji for taking the lead. I full agree whatever has happened has happened, but stop from future.

It is true that the media has behaved in an irresponsible manner which hampered the rescue operations. There is certainly a need to curb the rights of the media channels which have tried to sensationalise this entire issue.

Ramnath, Amsterdam
I completely agree with Vishal Dadlani and support this initiative. Watching the telecast, I feel that the Channels could have atleast waited for telecasting the sensitive information until the operation is over. From the experience, we have seen that the Media in India is irresponsible and the people and its representatives should put in some guidelines, controls that are outside the executive purview of the Government, but under an autonomous instituion on the lines of Election Commission and Judiciary.

Sailaja, Hyderabad
Please take the action ASAP

Yashpal Gupta, Pune
Today the media is not showing the people what they need , they are just running for TRP\'s and ads, there should be a guideline in which every news channel have to telecast programs related to education, information and the way the things to be displayed, not 24 hrs same news of attack, cricket, baba\'s and all rubbish things.

The attacks were aimed at our people, our prosperity and our peace. But their top target was something else: our unity.

As radical extremists, their only hope of winning is by turning the rest of us against each other.

The media is given complete freedom so that there is nothing to interfere with the search for truth. However, the reveal all attitude of the electronic media is responsible for revealing the secrets which should not happen. Infact some channels had shown the entire coverage as if there was a movie going on and not military operation. Shame on them . In search of making the news sensational, these channels over dramatise the situations, irrespective of what the situation is.

Shyamala, chennai
I agree. Indian media is only looking for sensationalism and in this case jeopardised the lives of several innocent people

Ambika, Pune
Although, Media has played a significant role during the Mumbai Terror attack. However, for a few their TRP for hunger lead to a man\'s death. Minute by minute covering gave an upper hand to the terrorists who may have also killed many innocent lives out of frustration or realising that the NSG or the armed forces would get them soon.

Sanjukta Khanna, Bangalore
Sachin R.Suryawanshi, Mumbai
Yes... Vishal is correct on his stand. Just for the TRP\'s these news channels are taking lives of innocent peoples.

I believe the behaviour of leading channels such as NDTV has been utterly disgusting. Its such a shame that half the time the police and RAF had to actually control the media from getting too close to action rather than worrying about terrorists who actually created havoc over the country. Over just a small piece of news so as to get ahead of other channels, the major news channels crossed and broke the rules of journalism.

while media is doing some good job of bringing up to date news, it also is clear it does in a manner to create more excitment and try to win more eyeballs than other news channels / news sources. This is leading to some unnecessary exageration and some uncalled for reports which causes more damage to the nation / society than anything else. There seems some hidden agenda behind the news reporting as well to popularise or criticise certain views or people.

The media is definitely responsible for the longtime taken for the whole operations to get over. No one is questioning their \"Freedom of Speech\" but with such a strong weapon in their hand they should have behaved more responsibly.

Siva Prasad Kurukuri, Hyderabad
Shivank Nayak, Hyderabad
For all commando operation, media should be kept at max distance and any civilian camera in that direction should be totally prohibited and no live telecast. During the time of operation, only information officially given by authorities should be permitted to be shown, even any other \"trailing lines/reporter statements\" should be banned. Its not just video telecast, reporter statements itself can cause enough damage to the strategy. And that should not be a suggestion, it should be made obligatory by a law and there should be severe punishment for disobeying it. All channels made a mockery of a 500+ strong serious commando operation by showing it like a live cricket match, making our very own commandos vulnerable to access to information by the enemy!!

In addition to the above mentioned points, I would also like to bring to notice that mediapersons were allowed to enter and telecast images from the Taj less than 12 hours after the operation was concluded. Would this not have caused a problem during investigations? Also, when the attack was underway, would it not have made sense to allow the mediapersons to provide only audio news? By allowing them full coverage are we as a country not putting our armed forces at risks and creating a sorry picture for the whole world to see? As a concerned citizen I do believe that there should be stronger laws in place for the conduct of mediapersons especially during a time of crisis!

It was so stupid of the media to talk to persons inside the Taj live, and the MP was saying the location where they were kept by the hotel staff. If the terrorist had watched it... the first thing they would to the location where these people where. Irresponsible and mindless behaviour by the media...!!

Margaret Thatcher had once remarked that publicising or broadcasting of the activities of terrorists using any form of media is like giving them oxygen. When you cut it off they lose interest and fade away. When she was prime minister of the UK she did not allow any reporting of IRA strikes. As a result their activities did abate to a great extent. The channel which aired the phone call of a (albeit alleged) terrorist should be severely reprimanded at the very least. I too strongly support this petition. I pray that this desire for a small change makes a BIG difference in the way we do things in the future.

Anil Kumar Bommareddy, Zurich
Moern media is meant for Money than Moral things. Its poor state of management from all forces involved in the operation. There should be CMG (Crisis Management Group) and lone spokesperson to handle the issue and to communicate to the Public. Media, in that case the whole episode, infact the public too should be managed by a strong authority and its needs to be formed. The whole area should had be cornered off. Think about public standing beside NSG commandos in the neighbourhood apartments and watching the NSG (who are in proper attire and Public as normal as) fighting the terorists. Is it the public exposed to return fire from terorists? We a change in the management level than a simple law which forbiddens Media which ofcourse can be easily overlooked by the same and Public as well.

Media is going haywire in making their channel run every channel was busy in saying they have the best coverage and best angeled camera but the so called responsible media as they themselves claim forgot that the telecast would serve as vital information to those who were thirsty for blood,i hope media would carry out stong campaign to trigger strict security actions by the government.If the politicians really want to make india secure it is possible we are caoabel enugh to produce and accquire latest tecnology to do so .And we as citizens of india should be more responsible and vigilant

Totally agree.In fact some news channels are proud even to say that they are the first channel to cover the story. They only need TRP\'s and thats it. If some1 is dying they wldn\'t help him but will capture the video to show he is dying.. Shame to our media persons.. A good Business to earn money on the expense of others.

The news broadcast during the operation must be reviewes and those who have brazenly uncovered commando tactics for sensationalization must be booked for siding with the terrorists.

Amol Suryawanshi, Mumbai
I personally believe that \"FREEDOM ALWAYS COMES ALONG WITH SOME RESPONSIBLITIES\" and the same thing apply to every one.. I agree with Vishal that If you are excersizing freedom.. u have some moral responsibilities too... In this terror act, unfortunately our media\'s behavior was irresponsible... although there were some exception(late Realisation). Post terror the same with the our political leader. I totally against of code and conduct.. as we are mature enough to understand what is good and Bad for our country... this feelings should have come from inside... Every indian is feeling that.... Why can\'t you??? First ur human being then Indian then comes ur profession or else... Try to think ... hope u will get answer...

Saneet Phanse, Mumbai
National Sensitive information should have been handled carefully, should not have been exposed the way it was done. Though it is exciting to see such events live, it should be understood that it costs a nation, a fighter his life. Not only the Live Telecast of such events, but all network (mobile, satellite phones) should have been blocked by whatever means. Only Police/Military channels should have worked in such events. The Live Telecast was aid to terrorist and nothing more. we all aware how these channels are hungry of growing their viewership, but they have forgotten their moral responsibility. Such Live telecase, and repeated outcries of vilant scenes should be banned - and be punishable. - for such channels too - enough is enough!

R Shankar Anand, Chennai
I totally agree with Vishal and I second him.

Sheba Kunhimohammed, Mumbai
The live coverage of Mumbai terror attacks was completely out of line. I kept wondering the whole time could the terrorists who had satellite phones and were getting calls from Pakistan have got valuable information by the in-depth coverage?

Lets not prolong this law passing till the next terror act is caried out in our country. For once we ask the honarable court and our judiciary system to take immediate action and implement a law for media broadcasting in case of national crisis. For once lets be responsible and promt at the same time. We have lost too many and can\'t wait longer, its already too late now.

The electronic media was irresponsible in showing live coverage of the ops at the Taj Hotel. It was also callous that it gave NO coverage whatsoever to those slain in CST and elsewhere because they were not \"important\" people but ordinary Mumbaikars. The media needs to get its priorities right, and not work only to enhance their TRP ratings but also provide a genuine service to the people of India.

It\'s high time we the citizen\'s of India need to hold these greedy and power hungry politician\'s accountable for the innocent lives lost in these attacks. Politician like chief Minister of Kerala has the audacity to insult a brave soilder\'s family, how can he even think of saying something like this. We have the right to know as to why the intelligence warnings were over looked by these irresponsible politician like Mr.Deshmukh, Mr.R.R Patil and our Hon. Home Minister Mr.Shivraj patil. We need to act now or it will never be done. Do not worry about those who have come thru boats... Our forces can easily defeat them. WORRY about those who have come thru votes....

I strongly feel that national security and personal security should take precedence over the need of higher TRP ratings that these news-channels primarily target. This is not to say that news should be censored – but news on counter terrorism actions can be relayed with appropriate amount of delay.

Suhas Palekar, Pune
As a Citizen we need to exercise restraint, in a turbulent atmosphere. We are not media savvy as the western countries are. I recall , the National fervor we witnessed - in 1962, 1965 and 1971 and during the Kargil War. My take will be to not offer a handle to further conflicts which can be manifest back home, in various forms. The world needs to see us be unified and once we are through we can edit an essay of a book entitled \' The Mumbai Blunder\'. I feel pained writing this. My heart goes to all who have lost their lives, the families and children who have been orphaned , loved ones and employees whom we will see no more and so many known and unknown heroes.All in all the Indian we will see no more. My Prayers are with them. To those who have survived - the courage and fortitude displayed with a will to come out of this. Please spread the message of Love, Peace, Non Violence and Harmony.We need to see future generations free of all this and we can - if we all exercise restraint. Please recognize the services of the hospital staff,doctors, nurses, volunteers and so many of them without failing to recall the announcer at CST - who did a marvelous job. God Bless all of them.

Deepika Pandhi, Delhi
I completely agree. Infact this has been pointed out by the NSG officials as having compromised their operation by taking away the surprise element in this era of blackberry\'s. Also a couple from America refused to speak to the media as CNN broadcast of their location had compromise d their safety while the seige was on. The media urgently needs to have some operational guidelines for such crisis situation reporting

Yeah , you are correct. Lots of people also feel the same. There are some things which the media shouldnt poke nose into until they are called for. Obviously some terrorists would have seen the tv in some room & would have known where & when the forces are coming from .. he has the time to hide.

Such a situation could have occured anywhere in India and it can be assured that our media would have had the same code of conduct anywhere. We need to bring in some disciplined standard operating procedure in place not only for the media but also for our leaders who try to rid themself off the responsibilities at this moment of crisis creating another political drama. They are the root cause of this disorganized system and should not be relieved without being made to compensate for the cause.

We have recently witnessed the vulgar attempts of Hindustan Times at its HT leadership summit of trying to project Sanjay Dutt as a hero and of Colours channel trying to make a heroine of Monica Bedi in Bigg Boss, simply because of their disdain for the law and their law breaking spree. How long do we wait before the arrested terrorist from Mumbai\'s carnage is made out to be a hero by our media?

Dear Friends, I am a 27 yr old CA from Chandigarh. I have been watching all the anti politician protests and I want to say that I differ fro that thought. Yes, the politicians have left us in bad state while utterly unimportant people like Mr. Amar Singh roam around in Z Plus Security cover. But I think it is WE who are to blame for that. We keep on voting for a party that has roots in our religion. We keep voting for the party that had one particular leader. We keep voting for the party which is from our own region. Do we ever see if the person we are voting for is capable of leading? I dont think we do. So it is WE who are as much responsible for this state of India as the politicians. WE cant ignore our responsibility towards the nation as citizens. Only after we become responsible citizens, can we ask the politicians to be responsible. I request all the readers to join hands and make yourself heard. Not in any protest, but in the debates at the time of elections. Ask the contestants about their credentials. Ask them about their vision for their constituency. Ask them about the specific problems that the constituency faces. You will see that not many will have answers to most of those questions. And if you dont find one good cndidate, field one from amongst yourselves.

Yes I agree.. Terror attack on the financial hub of of country is business for them. They stated many times that we put our life in risk for catering latest news to you. Who told them to do So???? Even after getting signals that terrorist are watching them kept on giving the confidential information. They all should be fined & should be told to apologize live to the Nation for enacting irresponsibly.

\"The freedom of Press\", is being completely misused by the media in 9 out of 10 cases. This is just another gory mistake from responsible individuals and media houses. God forbid that this doesnt become a reality, but would the same reporters/media houses have reported the same way if a family member from each of their families was a hostage of the situation. The constitution was written years ago. This has to be amended to accommodate the privacy, safety, integrity of citizens with changing times. Please impose a ban on live telecast of not only anti-terrorist operations but also any incident/situation wherein rescuring innocent human lives are involved.

I completely agree with Vishal that the media powerhouses in their quest to out-do each other have shed all moral principles. Freedom of press is fine but unfortunately, it is a very much abused word in our country. Also, we need to be more aggressive and agile in our efforts to to improve the security in our country so that such horrendous acts are not repeated and are nipped in the bud. Hope this petition will ring a bell somewhere. Jai Hind

I agree with Vishal... I even saw a video clipping with so many news channel camera men around it was really hard for the people to help the injured person get into the ambulance or car. As all this camera men wanted to show the blood and get the TRP. Also i think ministry should just give licence to 2 regional, 2 National & 2 international News Channel to operate in the country. Cos now it looks like a \"Macchi Bazzar\" when ever u turn on a news channel the reporters shouting on top of voice. News channel reporters should take a lesson from BBC reporters .. How cooly they talk without making the matter more serious. All the Best ... Vishal

The media uses the sensitive information to sell their chanels and in the bargain make the people involved more vulnerable. They have no right to do this. They think that being in media is being God to have access anywhere and to be everywhere. What they forget is that they are also people and what if they were in other people\'s place...

News Channels with headers as \"Exclusive News\" & \"Live\" were infact assisting the Terrorists in Knowing the NSG / Marcos / Police Strategy, & with an Phone call by these Terrorists being publicised on live TV was infact an attempt to deceipt them as heros.

I agree with you vishal.But one need to focus on these politician who are just making advantage of this situation. News channels are just displaying what so called politician have said. They (news channels) themselves are doing nothing for our nation.

\"Freedom to Media\" has become a very debatable subject after the recent terror attacks and its coverage. Its time that we re-validate laws around it, such that we have a responsible media. Today the media has adopted a method of sensationalizing everything that comes their way; not to forget their audience (each one of us) wants it that way. In either case, we cannot allow such irresponsible act from the media, and the curb should not be in the request mode, but should be forced through a law, such that everyone follows it.

i totally agree with this.. yes the news channels should avoid live broadcasting during such sensitive incidents and shud be ashamed of themselves. at the same time i wud appeal the citizens to not to be impatient for the news.. and force the media to take such a step.... also the government shud not put the TRP clause on the media channels... so that they dont act in such irresponsible manner...

Manjoo Lalwani,
Asheesh Agrawal, New Delhi
Such kinda of news should not be sensationalized. I overheard one channel broadcasting the terrorist\'s voice. What are we doing? In a race to out do the other news channel, they are compromising with national security and humanity. Who knows , due to their irresponsible behavior, Major Unni died... Wake up !! Govt must act on this.. There are few channels who are being aired just for sensationalizm.

The enduring image of the 9/11 US attack is that of the burning towers, and I don\'t really recall any gory images from the UK blasts. No shots in loop or images with red circles of people getting shot (a man in white shirt outside CST station) or man clutching bleeding hands at Metro Station, or the terrorists falling out of the window at Taj. Times Now actually showed the bleeding face of the terrorist after being shot at Chowpatty and all of a sudden Arnab Goswani realised that it is too gory to be shown on national television and cut the shot. Kudos to Vishal Dadlani for actually taking up the cause and starting a movement unlike other bollywood personalities who were seen blabbering on News channels outside the Taj.

hi vishal, you are spot on in your assessment. In the overenthusiasm and for TRP\'s the TV channels often resort to showing the so called \"breaking news\" and sensationalise every news they can have there hands on. Moreover, they do not have the common sense that the entire world was watching the media play the NSG commondos operating. this not have happened and should not happen again.

So called exclusive live coverage of terrorism is not entertainment. Compromising the commando operation by selling live coverage to the people is worse than the delays caused by the politicians.

Dear Vishal, How about a movement that forces the government to take decisive action against Pakistan. Their President has said that they will not hand over any of the people we have demanded.

Sensitive to what is being shown on their media channels........ Media does their job of reporting.... But not at the cost of the brave soldiers..... the brave men who make us proud.....SALUTE TO THE INDIAN ARM FORCES........ SALUTE TO THE BRAVE SOLDIERS WHO LAYED DOWN THEIR LIVES....... SALUTE TO THE CONCEPT OF INDIA....... We Need People to wakeup and need solutions to solve this Forever......

Yes I completely agree, I was going through the same thought process as I sat there watching the news. This Media will go to any lenghts for the TRP ratings and govt needs to have regulation as to what can be shown and when. Also on one hand I saw the commando\'s face covered and there were commandos who were freely giving interviews , why these contradictory measures. If the media needs to reach to the public they could have recorded it and then shown the same. Its time we the citizens forced the media to think.

It reminds me of the movie done by Shahrukh Khan:Phir bhi Dil hai Hindustani, where the media sensationalises the ahnging of a terrorists just to acheive better TRPs. The coverage of the Mumabi Terror Operation was no different. All channels were running for TRP\'s! Every channel had something \'exclusive\' to show! No doubt the security of individuals and the amry / commandos were put to risk by showing the live coverage. This needs to be banned.

Smriti Kumari, Bangalore
I completely gree..TV channels should not be allowed to broadcast live when such operations are going as it helps the terreorists to get detail information about the operations.So, such news cant be newsworthy at all as its helping our enemies not us.

Terrorism has been created by the impractical policies of the politicians. The politicians are supposed to be public servants but they get heavy securities. This security should be removed and used to secure common people.

Right said, Vishal, as it is, the hindi news channels are absolutely non-sense, those channels have never ever made any sense to me.

Actually the terrorists inside the building can\'t have direct access to the TV sets. This is bcoz, before starting the operation, the power supply to that particular building would be suspended. However there are chances for them to know the situation tru mobile phones from other terrorists who watch this Live coverage in other places. The main mistake our officials did is in not blocking the mobile phone frequencies for that area. This would have avoided TV channels to talk directly to the hostages and even would have stopped the terrorists from maintaining mutual communication. However these TV NEWS channels always say people to be responsible.. but they never think of the blunders they always do. I think this petition would at least bring some changes in the present scenario.

Karthik Nathan, Bangalore, India
For, all the positives of a free press, the private media today in India seem to breach the code of conduct expected from a responsible person in a position to affect publilc opinion. I should accept that I am not for the careless and TRP oriented coverage of media today, where the media\'s role in educating the general public has taken a back seat. Critisism in the name of a free press, and intervention in proceedings of critical events thereby compromising the operation as seen in the Mumbai seize needs to be addressed with high priority especially in a country like ours, where a huge percentage of people are not in a position to make judgements on their own and are influenced easily. At the same time, the armed forces, I felt did not do enough to stop the press in indulging. Should say that they are partly responsible, in addition to the general public, who are the root cause of the problem. After all, we are a public, who expect bollywood and cricket dominating primetime news content. This is why most Indian news channel/website have dedicated movies and cricket sections in additon to being the headlines.

\"Really It\'s high time we the citizen\'s of India need to hold these greedy and power hungry politician\'s accountable for the innocent lives lost in these attacks. Politician like chief Minister of Kerala has the audacity to insult a brave soilder\'s family, how can he even think of saying something like this. We have the right to know as to why the intelligence warnings were over looked by these irresponsible politician like Mr.Deshmukh (why he is in politics ? He should have joined the Bollywood). We need to act now or it will never be done. Immediately the Parliament should be suspended and Presidential Rule should be implemented and country should be handed over to Indian Army. This is the right time to attack on Pak, as US president is also saying that --\"it is India\'s right to destroy the terror_training_places in Pakistan\". We simply submitting the updated list of Terrorist from last so many years. In reaction to our atack if Pak reattacks then let it be. We citizens are ready to die once at atime instead of dying daily bit by bit. Because the places (CST) is a so common place where the Common Man like us always visits. In the firing of 26th Nov, we could have been one of the victims. Jai maharashtra.

This is a nice initiative. Just wanted to add that apart from the strategic information being leaked(possibly), the live telecast has really dented the psychology of the average man. Apart from being angry,frustrated and feeling disgusted we are feeling the FEAR. The FEAR of living on a day to day basis. Yes, media has helped in awakening the people of INDIA but this would have been the case even without the live telecast. The fear psychosis has gripped the nation. Let\'s not live telecast WAR.We just FIGHT it and crush the enemy. Thanks for the initiative Vishal

Very Good Vishal..!! None of the Mumbaikar or i can say Indian ever forget 26th December, 2008 - THE BLACK DAY. Let me ask also the people of Mumbai to report any unusual activities. Do not worry about the questioning about the police, give Mumbai - India some time. Also government must open a helpline with short number. Just like 911 in Canada, USA. No one will remember this eight digit phone number. Please do something towards this government of India?? Please do something to stop all this. Even being in Canada, me and my family is with the Mumbaikars. God gives peace to the brave ones who lost their life and Media should be guarded by some kind of rules and regulations for sure. Thanks one more time Vishal for this petition. And i request more and more people to sign this petition please.

This topic has been a matter of concern to most people ever since the attack occured in mumbai. Reportes claiming they are at an unidentified location and then stating which floor they are on or which part of the area they are at, are pieces of information which might seem too petty to these TV journos, but in reality might have a much much greater devastating impact on the lives of many...It is high time the government does something. It is high time we vote in a govt that will actually comprise of people who will bring about a positive change to this nation...we are SICK AND TIRED of seeing and listening to these politicians who are in fact doing NO GOOD to any of us. Its time we bring out about this change...

These are absolutely not in India\'s interest.

The electronic media channels are too much into sensational journalism. I saw them showing a police officer running here and there with an injured hand. The cameraman of the news channel went running behind him to capture his hand on his camera, but did not try to help him out. This happened some years back also from the same news channel IBNLIVE. They showed a video footage of a man who was trying to immolate himself, he doused himself with kerosine and then lit himself. This cametaman captured the entire scene on his camera and showed it on national television in the news. If the same cameraman would have tried to save that man he would have been alive today. But, unfortunately he succumbed to the burn injuries the next day. The same thing happened this time also. These e-news channel people went and trometed a police officer who was injured with multiple bullets in the hospital bed. They kept on asking the man who is in pain to explain the incidents occured in Campa Hospital where this police officer was doing his duty and injured by the terrorist bullets. He was literally in tears when the news channel personnel were asking questions and pleading them not to ask the same questions again and agian.

Another dreadful CRIME that the media resorts to is broadcasting out and out RUMORS without any verification/confirmation as BREAKING NEWS. Such unprofessional, unethical and irresponsible journalism itself adds FUEL to FIRE that spreads Panic of gigantic proportions. It is nothing but business rivalry, cut-throat competition, one-upmanship and to be FIRST to break news, with profit/money being the ultimate bottom-line that forces the media to act in such disgusting and disgraceful manner. Even the tenor of the reporter and the out of context visuals/clippings add to the overall dramatic effect to enhance the ‘sensationalism’ of the coverage. A case in point is the reporting of ‘Fresh firing at CST and neighbouring locality and even that 10-15 people have been taken as hostage’ blatantly broadcast by at least 3-4 channels that I know of on Friday, 28/11/08 before noon. Already the city was reeling under the barbaric acts of Terrorism and in comes such news that deepens the shock, anxiety and trauma of the public at large and further endangers their lives. This could have lead to further damage/destruction (of life and property, financial and economic, psychological, etc.) of unimagined magnitude. By the grace of God normalcy was restored within a short time. They need to understand the impact that any information given thro TV has due its reach and wrongly perceived \'authenticity\' by the gullible and news hungry but innocent viewers. Such an act of \'Rumor Mongering\' should be dealt with strictly. Such act only helps to amplify the panic amongst the people and this is precisely what any Terrorist wants to achieve. In other words, such acts of reporters/channels take the mantle of Terrorist and abetting Terrorist activities. Even such acts should be viewed as an unpardonable offence. Another common practice amongst all the channels is the ‘loop’ clipping and the ‘repeat’ news report/headlines/clippings as ‘Live’ or ‘Breaking’ even after 24 hours or more. There are also instances where ‘stock’/’archive’ audio-visuals are telecast vis-à-vis the current/live news whereby they try to make good the unavailability of corresponding footage. This is nothing but generating ‘shock’ value to attract more viewer-ship.

We are so lost in being destructive and competitive among our own selves, that we do not realize how we are aiding our own destruction.

Mumbai is targeted many times by this terror attacks and Media next day headlines are \"The Spirit of Mumbai\". Dats pathetic!! It is like \"Majburi ka naam Mahatma\". And to add to dat our politicians, instead of making sure that it doesn\'t happen again, start planning to strategise how to run rallies, speeches against the ruling party and vice versa. Mumbai Police should be provided the latest ammunition to protect the city and obviously themselves also. They are given the rifle which fires 2 bullets which also takes time to reload. In the mean time, the terrorist whom he is facing, fires 30-40 bullets!! Please Please look into this as ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.

When they should have observed caution, they gave 24x7 coverage of the operations, thus putting the entire operation and the lives of these personnel at great risk. If it was so obvious to a lay person like me, this would compromise the operations, how could such eminent and \"learned\" journalists not have thought of it...or were they too busy calculating the TRPs?

Similar, thing should be extended while covering any other national calamity (like floods). In Mumbai, all news channel show only those areas where water is logged, but don\'t pass on any value added information on, whats working! e.g: which roads are open, which railway lines are working? etc. In the current form of new coverage on floods it seemed that entire Mumbai is submerged. Media should behave responsibly! There has to be some filter! Filter of conscience.

Great initiative by Vishal. I have been voicing the same concern with my friends, but this idea never occurred to me. I dont need to be updated minute by minute as to what our soldiers are doing in a combat situation or as to how they are planning their next move on the enemy. As long as I know that I will be safe (to be extremely selfish) and the brave soldiers who ensure my well being are safe, I dont care how they do it! What the media should do is let the citizens know that a terror situation has arisen and should tell us what we should do, how we should conduct / act in such a situation. The media should have told the “curious” people to not go anywhere near “Ground-Zero” and cause more problems to those brave soldiers who are putting their lives at stake for the country. In fact, I even think that the media should go a step ahead in supporting the soldiers. The media could also be used to divert the attention of those terrorists who have access to the same “live TV” as us, by not giving out detailed information of operations and also by giving out some incorrect information to divert attention of terrorists and deny them any chance of being prepared to counter our soldiers. I would be more than happy to hear details (minus classified information of operations if any) after the operation is successful and peace has been restored. For people who would talk about “Right to Information” and “Freedom of Media and Press”: Fellow citizens, please be aware that our constitution also says that “in process of enjoying any of your rights as citizens of this great country, you should not cause harm or offence to any other citizen”. By being informed about the details of such high risk operations, you are not only hampering the success chances of such operations but you are also endangering the lives of those soldiers who put country before self and walk in selflessly to fight the suicidal terrorist and restore peace and normalcy.

Misuse of Slogan \"FREE PRESS\". Do news channel take responsibility for leaking such an information. They don\'t in past also we have seen it happened in case of kargil when bharkha dutt was in war site, everything was telecasting live. which again giving out information about the army position. As all these news is working against us not helping us in any how.

TV Channels should not been allowed where army operations are going on. I completely agree. More over they repeat the same thing again-n-again and this causes more panic and allow terrorists to memories things easily.

The Media should be restrained from braodcasting such vulnerable information which has made a double axed affect. Also, the Armed & National Security forces should be beyond the reach of these politicians, who always want to encash the situation by politicising the issue.

I am sure the live telecast must have helped the terrorists. And News channel should be ashamed for broadcasting the telephone conversation which they had with terrorist or with the hostages, just to increase their number of viewers. Some news reporters were going to the cordoned areas to get the more coverage. Stop being selfish and don’t kill our hero’s and common man to increase your TRP. We had a lot of discussion on the shoddy journalism but this step is surly going to help. Thanks Vishal..

Thank you for doing this. I was particularly sickened to hear one lady (I think in the Trident) being interviewed by a news channel reporter, while she was still IN the room. At one point the reporter asked her \"Have you called the police\" and she said \"I thought YOU were the police\" - the reporter had obviously not even told her that she was being interviewed, much less that it was being AIRED LIVE on TV. It was very disturbing.

The lack of political and executive leadership to ably react to a national emergency and failure in steering the citizenry and its communities in adversity, is a constant and disheartening theme in the national governance structure. Measures to counter insurgency and terrorism, need to be in place, and for that if citizens need to make certain sacrifices, then we are prepared for that. The only condition is that a government be self accountable and answerable to scrutiny if required, and evolves a code of conduct that inspires confidence and faith. Terrorism is not going to vanish and is here to stay. That is a tragic reality. Our only hope is to grow into a resilient deterrent nation and repel and discourage attacks by strong counter measures, raise the entry barriers for such activities, that infiltrators are not given soft and non-reactive targets and have invested resources in intelligence, equipment and knowhow to subvert this growing menace. Terrorism has no political agenda, its only objective is to terrorize. Let us not hand it to them.

Media is supposed to be an important pillar supporting a well run democracy hence responsibility and self-censorship is the least that can be expected. Times of national tragedy are not moments for gathering maximum eyeballs by labelling every piece of information as breaking news! You guys could have probably thought of assisting the operation by misguiding the terrorists. The whole nation would have supported I am sure even as they wait with bated breaths to know the actual outcome!

Manisha Luthr, Mumbai
What appalls me in not only the live coverage by the media of sensitive information, but also the presence of spectators around the venues of attack!! On what grounds were the people around being allowed to stand around and watch while the forces were fighting, not only endangering their own lives, but also hindering the work of the police and the forces? A commando has specifically mentioned that the continuous live coverage of their operations by the media did leak out their presence and tactics to the terrorists and vital time was lost. Your Honour, please take note.

abdulrasheed, Mumbai
It was really surprising that Electronic media dare to show so called Live coverage, ignoring as to what information they are giving to the viewers or helping the culprints on the otherhand. It is pertinent to mention here that recently Honourable Judges in while disposing one of the matter before them, observed that there is not a single day in an year that the family can sit together and watch TV programmes with their wards and siblings. To such an extent the quality of obscene and violence is being shown nowadays. The recent incident involving terror strike till 59 hours was covered almost by all channels live and even the location and directions of the NSG operation was shown unimagining its adverse effect. This goes to show that our electronic media deserves to be controlled by regulations and a policy decision is absolutely necessary to avoid future happenings for any adverse impact in sor far the matter of security is concerned. Print Media and Electronic Media is very effective in today\'s global world and time has come to censorship; exploring some limitation otherwise the obscene and violence and uncensored material will cause damange to our society as a whole.

It\'s about time. The very premise for some Indian news channels is sensationalism. India TV launched with a sting operation (Shakti Kapoor). What else can we expect of them. But the time to expect is over, it\'s time to demand restrain from the electronic media. Also, viewers don\'t need to see the same pictures over and over again to comprehend the gravity of a situation. Apart from obvious secutiry concerns in this case, the repeatedness is enough to distress and anger any average person, and will any of this help restore order?

I have to agree that the media in India seems to have lost all possible ethics where they are too excited and eager to report the news and they fail to have any emotions or sense of responsibility while doing their job. Many of the reporters fail to show the maturity and maintain the composure in situations like this. The whole thing has been commercialized way too much that they are willing to report any thing that can get better viewership forgetting the impact that it can have or taking ownership or responsibility for it.

This is an excellent step taken and was much awaited. I strictly feel that our country\'s media needs a code of conduct that governs the news/information that is being broadcast. It is shameful to see how the media uses such tragic events to boost their channel\'s TRP. The media sadly and for selfish motive overrules their moral as well professional responsibility. It is insane to ask victim\'s relatives, \"Aapko kaisa lag raha hai\" (how are you feeling) or \"Iss hadse ke baad aap kaisa mehsoos kar rahe hain\" - how very rubbish & foolish. Thank you Vishal for taking the initiative and being the people\'s voice for this cause.

The \"voice of reason, reporting fact\", was instead heard screeching hysterically, madly gesticulating and inciting when it should have calmed. We have always made heroes of our journalists. This time we\'re frankly ashamed of some of them. Our forces did a fantastic job, hats off, tricolour unfurling for them... I wish the media had been just as professional in its conduct.

They have stoutly defended their devious country and we have been found napping especially our Anchors. Let\'s get rid of this charade. No Paki channel will give Indians opportunity to air their views then why should we be so magnanimous? Another point, Rashid Latif has already stated that their cricketers should stop playing in Indian leagues because India is an enemy country for them. Then why should we try to be friendly to citizens of that unholy land?

Why in India in the name of \"Freedom to Press\" such things are shown. Not only live coverage, they also show distracting images (damage, deabodies etc). This should not be allowed.

I fully support the concern and appeal of our friend Vishal Dadlani. The unedited media coverage of Mumbai attack by our \'renowned\' NEWS channels has greatly elevated the intensity of the devastation that has taken place during Mumbai Attack. There was absolutely no point at all for the NEWS channels to broadcast live coverage of each and every bit of the activities carried out by our valiant soldiers. This ultimately has greatly assisted the militants in two broad ways (1) Militants will surely have access to TV sets inside hotels on which they would have been well aware and updated with all the next moves of our soldiers. (2) Incase the militants do not have access to TV sets, surely, they had Mobile phones/Electronics gadgets through which they would have been easily kept up to date with the moves of our soldiers by their counter parts within India and Across Indian boundaries. I strongly condemn such silly moves by our \'Reputed\' NEWS channels which ultimately resulted in a huge loss of Human lives. I strongly request Hon\'ble court to issue a Writ, Order and Direction as it may deem appropriate directing the Authorities to formulate a model Code-of-Conduct within a fixed time frame; that be made mandatory to the TV News Channels, to regulate the \'Live\' broadcast of such and similar eventualities and operations.

Debbie Rao, Mumbai
I\'m so so relieved that someone has finally spoken up against this. The media\'s behavior during the forty one hour terror attack lacked judgment, perspective and/or just plain common sense. In fact i would really beg to differ with those who would argue that the media helped in keeping them informed. Information of the attacks as they happened and an instructions as to whether one should stay put or head home would\'ve have sufficed at that time. Information on the NSG, Marcos operations was not important, it was most unnecessary. As were radical comments by angry Mumbaikars and the endless insights into the operations by field reporters who lack the expertise or training to be making such comments. One channel even went to the extent of (and I\'m really not making this up!)calculating the date of the next attack! Hey, it was half hour special! I could go on... But to keep it brief, I\'m just very happy this step has been taken and really really hope that some action is taken on the matter.

The media coverage should be restrained according to situation. The media is competing with each other for to show who can show more at the cost of putting lives of non suspecting citizens trapped in such situation. It looks like human life has no value in India & everybody exploits the common man for their gain only let it be politicians or media.

I agree to vishal\'s comment. News can be updated but should not be telecasted LIVE while the rescue operation is going on.It\'s something like your house is burning and your shooting it in your handycam.

The indian news channels and media should be responsible and mature enough. They are headache for our country if they will remain unregulated. Strick regulations should be imposed over them.

I believe that the media giving live coverage of what the security agencies are planning and where they are present MUST be STOPPED. It is not only the common man who is following the story, it could be unscrupulous elements as well who are directly/indirectly related to the incident.

Dinesh Kumar, Bangalore
I was shocked to see the detailed coverage and the irresponsible manner in which Media covered the whole operation just for the sake of TRPs. There should be some code of conduct to stop this in future.

I felt that Barka Dutt\'s reporting on the exact location of our rescue operations was uncalled for. NDTV please note. I appreciate the reports given by TIMES NOW keep up your good work!

Thank you Vishal, This is a super and very eye opening email. It just makes so much sense practically. There is no point in the blame game. It\'s us who have to pull up our socks!

Apeksha, pune
I truely agree that media named TV news channels have opened all secrets of the resque operations.This is not acceptable.We have to take strict action against this.even these news channel influence superstitions and expand the issue and present it in a dramatic way.It has become frustating now.It should be stoped once and for all.

Hitesh Sharma, Chandigarh
Whole heartedly agreed

FAREED VIRANI , HYDERABAD
It\'s true exposed the plans of the military and National Security Guard by telecasting live operation as all NEWS channal wear alert not to telecat live but still thet din\'t understand..they could have telecast some man poing not videos... its was really hurt that all want ed there channal TRP ..Many life could have save if it was not lelecast live brodcasting..for me terrorists should be shot in public in front of millions of people so they never try to do that again... why terrorists dont understand RAM and RAHIM are one ...just for some money they kill many life....i cry when i see our soldier sacrifice the life .. not caring of there live and saving civiles life ...i Salute them with my Bottom Of Heart..and wish who lose ther live in terror Attack God gave them peace for ther soul...fareed virani

Dilip Patnaik, Hyderabad
I feel the intentions of the channels wasn\'t bad. infact, NDTV\'s depiction was sensible and sensitive. But, we do need the channels to show discretion. Enforcement is the only option.

M.VINOD, VIJAYAWADA
Every word is a gem in its own perception and it is true that the media is very immature and never understand the safety of the country except sensation. I feel media is reacting more to an incident than an average citizen and if it finds that due attention not received to any news it is changing its angles and again trying to explore new sensations at the cost of national security. This is the media which is causing more damage to the nation not the irrational terrorists. Media at the feet of politicians and corporate people, industrialists, taking only one angle(celebrity)as the most sensational one to be to all the public. Only example is the coverage the Taj hotel got during this entire incident compared to the coverage given to the incident at other places particularly Chatrapathi Sivaji Terminus where more number of people lost their lives. Probably the molestation incident during the new year celbrations at this Taj hotel on 31st night of 2007 has explored enough security lapses to the world of terrorists and probably this has encouraged the group to select their target. I really pity the journalism taking such turns and revealing every secret of this lovely country.

Definitely.U r correct, Mr. Vishal.

Kshitij Sharma, Hyderabad
\"If the politicians are being criticized for \'politicizing\' the Mumbai attacks, the media is as guilty of \'commercializing\' it. After all a common man has no need to know the intricacies of a commando operation. Media has been acting very irresponsibly in the interest of this country. Another thing I must point out here is the various fortune telling programs that can be seen on these news channels these days. Is it not pushing the country back into the realm of superstitions?\" Vishal, appreciate your initiative, thanks for showing the way

Col M Ravishankar, Pune
They make or mar a nation\'s reputation and make matters worse when it should be the other way round. The Israeli defence expert who was on Times Now panel said exactly that \"if you give so much exposure on TV and that too live it will be to the advantage of the terrorists who take political mileage of this\".

I completely agree with the issues raised in the above petition and would request the Hon\'ble Justices to direct the media to not let such blunders compromise the safety of our nation and the unfortunate victims.

Sumit K Jha, Pune
Our news channels in a lust to increase their TRP and thus profit have forgot what role they have to play for the growth of our nation. They always highlight the negativities (they are real pessimists) and never every try to bring out the real facts and good things (Positive aspects) of our country. We should definitely have Freedom of Opinion but not the way our private news channels broadcast. Freedom of Opinion means an unbiased view...which unfortunatley our news channel doesn\'t have.

neelam tyagi, New Delhi 110019
yes they always talk about the roll of a police man or a politician etc. but they should learn of thair limits why dont they do something to cop with the situation ? they only doing there jobs without contributiing to that situation they only shout for thair TRP...

Hi, I was also having the same thoughts as you did. I was watching ndtv and cnn at the same time. After the first day, ndtv stopped the live telecast as they have recieved urge from Police. but when I turned to CNN-IBN, they never stopped it. Everytime I could see Live images and they were saying that \'the commandos were taking granade launchers inside\' and news like that which will let the enemy know that what are we going to do next. Even a common man can understand what is going to be done with those images and live feed, its not a difficult thing for the terrorist of that magnitude. Please punish the media who were irresponsible and senseless. I even write it to CNN, but nobody cared for it, I think.

Rajeev Sharma, Pune
Yes, this is a much called for action. Totally agree with what Mr Dadlani is saying here.

benchmark 9/11 reporting: just the scenes of plane crashing seen across media.postmortem of the act happening with pictures of bodies on each floor , state of affairs inside the rubble,etc though covered were never shown on televised media as per the govt. laid requests which were abided by one and all.Learning! Culprit: news channnels insane , insesnitive reporting Crime: enticing feeling of suspicion on oneself,neighbor,charcters,mental harresment and causing deppression attacks with long lingering impact of sensational puking of un-censored,un-edited,unresponsible live coverage.

Akshat, mumbai
I strongly agree with this petition as that day news channels were showing that those media persons were very close to the vicinity and some of them were even inside the building giving live telecast of the operation going on.That was highly irrisponsible.How couldn\'t they think that they are not only revealing the operation\'s status but disturbing the comondos too.

Manish Mishra, Bangalore
I strongly endorse this.

Swapneel Raut, Mumbai
I totally agree......Media is abusing their rights....also one request to our honourable prime minister that please wake up & sack the corrupt ministers.....before more innocent people lose their lives....

Raju Malkani, Pune
I fully agree with Mr. Vishal on the matter and media should be kept away from any anti-terrorist operation completely till the operation is over. I would also appeal to the media that they themselves stay away during such operations as they are also creating fear in the minds of viewers of thier channel.

Rahul Bakshi, Gurgaon
You are absolutely right Vishal. There should be some rule applied to them also. I think there is one way between live streaming of secret information and not showing anything on TV. Media can use still pictures instead not of the secret operation but only of the affected area and persons. They can show this on TV with some use full information so that every one is aware of the situation. See if media wouldn’t be telling this on TV then how come we get to know what is happening out there?? This is just my idea. I didn’t mean any offence and harm to any individual. If I did then I am very sorry.

Apurva Shah, Mumbai
The Indian media currently has no head governance to limit the level of sensitive content that the channels broadcast... may it be for the recent attacks or even otherwise (for all nationally sensitive issues). Good Initiative \'Vishal\'. Lets hope this goes far and we see a change.

SN Raja, Chennai
I agree that \"Security is Security\" and there has to be a \"Confidential element\". News can be broadcasted after it is over (not live). This also creates more feeling of panic to the people... (but may be good for their TRP ratings)

I am equally shocked that any & every common man could understand that in such situation one should not show live coverage of such coveted operation where human lives are concerned, but Media who so gallantly says look how callous statements PM/CM make, who point it out to us that we should throw away such govt who do nothing for us, such Media itself goes and does something which is equally callous & disturbing. Prannoy Roy and likes of him should publicly apologise and uphold that going forward they shall not use such coveted operations to drwa mileage for there News Channels but rather extend full help.

Strict laws are necessary to avoid such kind of ridiculous media sensations.

shaheen ahmed, mumbai
I truly stand by what you have written... The telecast was perhaps done by \"brave\" reporters...but telecasting live an ongoing counter-terror operation of this scale is something that did have its repercussions... whey even in wars this kind of telecast isn\'t done...and all of us including me, were glued like voyeurs to the television sets... i am sure there were other ways of broadcasting it witgout revealing the operational details... being a person from the media industry itself, i believe in share of information but i am sure such a telecast could have been carried out in a better and more responsible manner...

We as Indians appreciate the valuable news that the media pass to us, but then sometimes they are uncontrollable. Most of the TV channels were claiming \'We are the first channel to show/expose this and that....\' etc etc.\' The whole unfortunate hours which were telecasted by these channels seemed like a rat race in proving their efficiency of telecasting the \'Breaking News.\' This country needs strong enforcement of laws and strict code of conduct at levels of the society not only during such emergencies, but always!

This is right..It was a mockery of the serious action taken by our armed forces.

We are news hungry people and given a chance, we have seen every bit of the telecast. But that is news for us. The Media should be responsible enough to service the same in a different manner which will spread awareness and at the same time also protect the effort of the ones who were trying to save our lives. This time it was not done. The media were trying to prove to the masses, who is catering what news and upto what level. At the end of the day, they should very well know that we dont try to remember which channel or which reporter brought the news to us because we are already overwhelmed by the sad episode. I strongly support this petition. I am with you Vishal

I agree fully. Even if the terrorists were not watching it on TV, it was very possible that there commanders sitting far away were going through it minute by minute, analysing it and giving an action plan to the terrorist. I infact quite strongly believe that this is the only reason the operation took so long. We didnt know anything about the terrorist and they knew everythign about whom they were fighting through media.

High time that the news channel stop worrying about their TRPs at least under circumstances where its a matter of life and death

Media and News channels should be controlled for national security operations

niharika jaiswal, new delhi
the media is worried about TRP only. they have done similar things lot many times before. i have joined my hand with all of you to stop this.

Brig PVR Nair[Retd], Bangalore
There should be a ban on such running commetries/news broadcast/telecast

Kunal,
I fully agree with the appeal. It was gross neglience of all the channels to feed \"on going live\" details in media. Lets not try to gain TRP at the cost of human life and national tradegy.

Smitha Rao Hebbar, Bangalore
Harsh, mum
I completely agree and not only that we must also hold the media responsible for any news that is being published. They inorder to receive a higher TRP land up saying anything which may not hold any grounds to the actual reality. Henc eany information information published must have some backing of reality, truth to it. till then things should not be sayed or published.... Correct me if I am wrong...!!!!!!

Rakesh Jain, Hyderabad
Please take a stern step and protect innocent lives,otherwise we would see a brutal face of terrorism in the coming days.This petition must be filed and should be mandated in order to protect the intrest of general public and brave soldiers.The terror attacks could be faced only by brave soldiers but can be supported by us.So I recommend the law makers to enforce this petition.

I believe this PIL is the right thing to do. For the sake of TRP, our channels are compromising the safety and security of our brave officers.. Shame on you Rajdeep, Prannoy, Arnab and your like....

Amol R Bhat, Pune
Request the concerned person to please do the needful at the earliest. The whole problem with our country people is that we do not tend to learn from our history and from our earlier mistakes. Its high time now that we act mature in everything we do and not just act in any unorganised and foolish way. Thanking you in advance.

please dont work with pakistani acctors,acctress and other like singer, music director and also stop to played criketer in IPL and ICL plase stop all other programe like reality show with pakistani people we dont wont that pakistani people who are alwayes against india dont allowed them in india please support us to fight with terrorist this is first step to take much early before the attacks is happen

Mahima, bangalore
agree, agree, hundred percent agree. in fact i can also imagine the media defending this with things like, \'the hotels had cut off the cable connections in the rooms\', \'signals were disabled so terrorists couldn\'t have seen the news\', etc. etc. But i ask you, for a group of professional killers who managed to set up control centers inside such eminent buildings, how difficult would it be to stay connected with SOMEONE from the outfit watching the news, even if the terrorists directly were not? how can we assume that the 11 men that committed this act are the only perpetrators to be worried about? is there any guarantee that a few others who were not involved in this operation, but do belong to the same outfit, could not have been monitoring and relaying this entire thing sitting comfortably in some remote hotel, in mumbai or otherwise? damn right a military operation deserves a covert status, like any other sensible country would have it. AGREE.

venkat subramanian,
More than media having done it, the system should not allow them to do so. Law should forbid any citizen of the country including media, politicians etc to be around the vicinity of an area which is in Armed Forces control. The area should be quarantined for forces to use them and take the operation to success.

I 100% agreed with the person Vishal Dadlani

Pragati, bangalore
I agree, we watched because it was available, there should be stricter action on live coverage, its not a thing of pride that such and such jurno did not sleep for 60 hrours and covered evrything live, we should give the freedom to security force to carry on thier operation, and once its done they can telecaast the same.

Vivek , Gurgaon
Totally agreed with Vishal. I\'m not sure but heard that the TV channels were not blocked in the Taj and Oberoi. But still there is no doubt that airing the NSG\'s or Armed forces steps in such a way is too irresponsible.

I think we should declare war and finish Pakistan once and for all. Innocent lives were claimed. Why is the government unable to bring Dawood Ibrahim to India. It is only because many politicians heads will roll. All these politicians have taken money from the underworld just to finance their party for the elections to be fought. Why are there so many body guards for these corrupt politicians. These politicians think we are blind. I think it is high time something is done.

SHAMEFUL is the only word to describe media\'s conduct.While they go on passing judgements on the politicians what about their accountibility.One wonders what was worse their trivilasing the whole operation while our commondos were risking their lives and putting everyone else\'s life in danger or their insentivity and sheer lack of respect for the dead in showing all the gory images in the name of being the First To Show It All.They should be made to realise their responsibility moreso in a time of national crisis.

Preethi Sekar, Hyderabad
Vinit, Mumbai
I totally support this. Let us all make very sure that nobody dare put lives at risk just for the sake of TRPs

HITEN, MUMBAI
I AGREE

Vidyut Shenoy, Bangalore
It was shameful to see the electronic media sell national security for the sake of a few TRP points. They must be restrained from doing anything that jeopardizes the nation ... and that interviewing terrorists who\'d do anything to get a few of their thoughts planted on unsuspecting minds.

Lets Set our Country as an example of developed Nation in dealing with Terrorism.

Dilip Nimse, Rahuri
I was shocked to see some journalists from Times were covering from around 15-20 meters from the operation in Nariman House. They were even showing exact locations of NSG/Military persons and what they were doing.

There was a competition going on between the news channels to show exclusive coverage of the attack.. what angered me the most was their repetitive claims that so and so footage can be seen only on our channel.. Such shameful acts must be condemned.

Very true and apt petition. As an example, to highlight the scenario in the movie Wednesday (where Anupam Kher points out to the journalist how she was being used for the live news telecast she was making) - When directors can point that out in their movies... how does it miss the media fraternity themseleves?

It was shocking to see that Media was live telecasting how commandos were being droped above the nariman house and how another one is taking his position in a neighbours house. When terrorists are getting live intructions from their \"head office\" these telecast is actually helping them.

Nidhi S, Mumbai
I fully support the concern and going forward also officials should ensure that all such things are not made easily accessible to everyone through media. And hopefully media also act a little responsible. Funny isnt it this game of human lives have become a game for gaining votes for politicians and gaining TRP\'s for media channels.

Bipin Peter, Dubai, UAE
My full support for the same.

Prasoon Jaiswal, London
I fully support this petition.

P.kotinkar, PUNE
Why on earth is the media having debates after debates on this horrifying situation. We should all come together to condemn this barbaric act and not to glorify by calling in for opinions from the whole world. I wish Miss Barkha Dutt would restrain herself from dramatising the terrorist attack on Mumbai just for TRP ratings.

NDTV made the wrong choice to risk the lives of security guards while in their petty battle of TRP points. Whats more appalling is there systematic underestimation of the IQ of the Indian masses. Clearly we can differentiate between sensationalisation and news reporting. Clearly, Barkha cant.

NARESH AWALKAR, HYDERABAD
one of the hostages who spent 48 hours at taj, tells that the terrorist\'s are watching news channels and speaking over phone to pakistan what was happening out side,and changing their positions,so that they can misguide NSG commandos,eventhough they not stopped live coverage.

Vasantha, Chennai
Good to know that there\'s somebody out there who can take on the media...sadly, its come to a stage where everyone and the media itself thinks that they can do no wrong...the latest incident is a case in point of callous disregard for the danger to the lives of people...the media have become vultures, forever lying in wait and competing with each other for \"prey\" (pun intended)...so, good luck with the petition and God bless...

Thanks Vishal! for bringing this up. I personally feel each word mentioned in the letter is apt. Also to add, I think the news to be presented as news (let be the mumbai attack or any murder case or any news). media should not dramatise the whole episode and the put up non-sense caption to get TRP. (like what AAJTAK does)

I really appreciate the work initiated by Vishal. We need our heros and icons to stand up against the impotent administration which is running our country. Common people know more about illegal work going on in India then the authorities. Why is that. This petition should not only be limited to the media persons but also for the politicians who will for sure try to use this terror attack to gain political millage. Our economy is growing but the country is still run by illiterates. Bearing our PM and few others I don\'t know who many of our ministers have good education background. All they are doing is minting money for themselves. God Bless India and its people

Vijey, Hyderabad
In my opinion, the axis of evil for India are: Ruling party, Opposition party and the Satellite news media (they should be called as sensationalists and not journalists). They think they are the custodians of truth and justice. They must be made to adhere to some protocols during these bad times.

Nice 1 Vishal.....It feels good looking at how each and every citizen of India is taking up the responsibility and doing whatever one can do fronm his side... Actions should be taken against media and journalists for being so unethical and irresponsible and are only worried about making TRP from such a tragic incident....

I completely abide by what has been expressed by Vishal. It was extreme showcasing of irresponsible coverage by the media who not only made the jobs easier for the terrorists but also created great mileage to all the channels that made sure they reached there n covered the areas of havock even before it came to the attention of our cops which is likely to have made it much easier for the bad guys to plan n maneuver their next move. Like mentioned by fellow petitioners, at the end of the day TRPs n the money is all that counts right? Aren\'t they making enough of it already? If Im not mistaken, the US govt. in particular, as im sure of it, does not permit such live media stunts to be carried out by the media which would hinder an on-going operation. Will India ever learn? Please...its high time we join hands and do something about all this. When you actually come to think about what needs to be set straight in India, everything from scratch needs a re-structuring...

What Vishal has mentioned is common sense. For all we know, whoever sent these terrorists may be watching these channels and passing on the information to the terrorists by their satellite/mobile phones. All the channels were more interested in claiming that they have the exclusive and latest information (I am sure this is to increase their TRP ratings) and least bothered about the damage they were causing. This being very sensitive issue involving our neighbours, the words and statements the reporters on these channels use should be carefully chosen in order to ensure that there is no miscommunication (especially when emotions are flaring high on both sides and interpretations/perceptions can go wrong easily). The channels repeatedly air \'wrong\' visuals and interviews that don\'t allow people to calm down and think clearly. Hope the \'common sense\' prevails.

Anupam Shrivastava, Mumbai
I fully endorse the views in the petition as above. Also I request the honorable court to evaluate the statements made by the then Home Minister and various other politicians and Police and Army Officers updating the ever TRP hungry media. This could also have passed on real sensitive information to the terrorists and I suspect may have resulted in loss of lives to some of our brethern whose lives could have been protected, IF there was total clamp down on the TV/Media Channels.

Tamilarasan S M, Bangalore
Raghu N, Bangalore
If the TV channels believe that their TRPs can be increased @ the cost of giving away valuable information (read as helping bad elements) than I don\'t see any point in them broadcasting such news... We the people need to stand & sentinel for the change to need!!!

Dear Mr. Vishal Dadlani, I appreiate this venture. I suggest that we also initiate a process whereby the Legislature (Parliament) can enact a law defining what the TV or News channels can or cannot do and define the authority (NSG?) for stipulating these actions on a case by case basis. My impression is that the Court (Judiciary) may not be able to act unless there is a law in this regard. Regards, Jagadish.

Live telecast of such events should be banned.

The above questions asked by Vishal is absolutely right and agree to both of his points.. New channels should not be allowed to cover such operations and broadcast it live...In my opinion its a very shameful act

every one should behave in a responsible way.

I am equally shocked that any & every common man could understand that in such situation one should not show live coverage of such coveted operation where human lives are concerned, but Media who so gallantly says look how callous statements PM/CM make, who point it out to us that we should throw away such govt who do nothing for us, such Media itself goes and does something which is equally callous & disturbing. Media and Government both are equally responsible for this incedence to be telecasted. After the operation accomplished, why the hell media were allowed to go to Taj and Oberoi, to demolish the remaining evidences? and what the hell Ram gopal Verma was doing there??

Tanya Kullar, Delhi
Srihari, Bangalore
If people watches the movie \"A Wednesday\" i think the reason would be clear why screening live telecast of this operation cyclone is bad. These news channels were the bloody eyes of the terrorists, so they could understand the strategy of our brave commandos. These type of sensitive information should not be telecasted live. Will these media people go to the war field to telecast live - do they really have such guts. Just to gain popularity no means what route is taken no body bothers. This is really shameful. I think the SC should come up with some guidelines for media.

I fully support Mr. Vishal for this act. Our Media indirectly helps these terrorists sometimes. There should be some norms, some rules regarding the footage shown on televison. Media should act with responsibility in situations like this. Simply to increase the viewers and to increase their profits via advertisements in between the news telecast, these people sometimes forget what is right and what is wrong. They themselves act against their country. I request the authorities to take necessary steps and frame some rules and regulations regarding the same.

Not only do I endorse the views fully as expressed by the main petitioner, I also would like the honorable court to review sensitive information passed on by our esteemed politicians - Home Minister, CM, Dy CM; Police Chiefs, Navy Chief (turbaned), NSG CO. I strongly believe that in the excitement of showing up on international media (TV and other); they did pass on information that could very easily have been used by the terrorists and I suspect our brethern\'s lives that they were supposed to be defending was put at risk (not to mention that some of them may have lost their lives by this irresponsible act). I also strongly feel that we need, if at all required - JUST one agency that should be responsible for disseminating any kind of information during such extremely crucial times.

Its appalling that the battle for viewership is now coming at a cost of national security. Strict restrictions have to be put up against airing live interviews, operations and incidents that may be detrimental to national integrity.

BIRTH OF A NEW RELIGION - GLOBAL TERRORISM !!!!!!!!!!!! The last three days were a nightmare,not only for Mumbai or India but for every peace loving human on this earth. The ordeal is over and even as life at Mumbai is returning to normalcy,the aftermath of the incident is being felt gradually and the impact is sinking in now - a constant sense of scare and insecurity in the minds of every man.There has been a great loss of a large number of lives,innumerable people injured and unimaginable loss or property ,but the biggest success of the attack,has been the successful declaration of the birth of a new religion-Global terrorism, which has created a perpetual dread .The blasts are over but the louder sound of fear being echoed from all directions is that terrorism is here to stay! The attacks were in India,but had an international impact,as they were aimed against the complete world and the entire humanity.Most ,or rather all of the attackers and the attackers of other terrorist attacks may be from a particular religion,but this is neither Hindu-Muslim,nor India-Pak and not even concerning the Kashmir issue.These terrorists have no religion and belong to no country.Terrorists were earlier recognized as uneducated,familyless,poor homeless people dressed in a camouflage daangree,but the present set,has broken all socio-religious,and geopolitical boundaries and stretches through all economic and educational strata.It is neither a group,nor an organization,but a community of fanatics that runs probably in crores in numbers,includes technical professionals and is composed of psychopaths armed with the unbeatable weapon of suicidal determination. The Mumbai crisis ,which was one of the worst terrorist attack on the country ever,was commendably overcome by the NSG,Mumbai Police and the Armed Forces along with the unclenching support of the staff of Oberoi and Taj hotels,local agencies and the energetic Mumbaites.What was conspicuous was the lack of any pre rehearsed plan to combat such terrorist attacks,and the luke warm reaction and almost impotent role of the politicians,government and the so called guardians of the country and specially Mumbai! The operations are over,but the trouble is not.It can recur,anywhere and even in a worse and bigger magnitude and each one of us has to be prepared to face and fight it. But a bigger issue is to end this global terrorism. The Jihadi mind set,meticulous planning,intensive training,perfect execution ,unlimited armentaterium along with the ever increasing strength in numbers,and the unimaginable pace of growth of this global terrorism is an international matter of great concern.Driven by the in human fanatism and blindfolded by the religious motivation,the terrorists are acting like puppets,on the directions of few,to unknown destinations and towards undefined goals.I,with my small brains,fail to understand the motive behind it.Is it the revenge of the past,struggle of today,or insecurity for the future? After every such attack,the first thing that we do,is talk of lax security,and as a knee jerk action,increase it,for the next few days. But this is far from adequate.The in depth information available with them and the comprehensive scheming can break any security circle.What is required today is to reach the cause of the terrorism and its motive,and a very effective fool-proof system to counteract such an attack with minimal damage. Security has to be enhanced but above all ,Anti Terrorism should become an International affair.It needs to be handled either by a special newly created branch in the UNO or a separate International Anti terrorist Agency to fight this lethal demon.Besides combining intelligence and improvising security measures,the agency should derive and create prompt and effective anti terrorism plans and simultaneously try to reach at the cause of it,and attempt to solve it with international intervening and dialogue. At national level anti-terrorism should become a major issue for all governments,with minimum a ministry status,with adequate funds and resources. And above all,every individual besides being vigilant,should stay away from such fanatism,motivate people against it,avoid any instigation ,and above all be a responsible citizen of humanity to fight terrorism.

The Media has been extremely immature in handling this issue. At moments like these, when the greatest concerns are the lives of the hostages and the brave men fighting the terrorists, the media should have shown a little more concern for their lives. Instead of acting in the interest of the Nation, they have been thinking of commercializing a National Catastrophe. In fact we must urge the government, the Supreme Court and the armed forces to review the powers entrusted with the latter, and if necessary, grant them the authority to prevent entry of live telecast equipments at the sites of these operations.

There should be a code of contact to control the information telecasted through TV programmes and News channels; during, before and after the attack. Live telecast should not be encouraged, as it is creating panic among the publics.

Resignations of the ministers are not sufficient , they should be tried for penal action and punished for their misdeeds and failures , just like any other government servant . They have resigned today to divert public anger , but only to return back later with some other portfolio . Remember 3 points to the core : 1. Our administration / security is inept and incompetent . 2.The filthy politician has rotten\'ed the entire system and administration . 3.We have elected those jokers to become PM\'s , CM\'s , Home Ministers etc etc ...... We need to CHANGE the mindset / priority / objectives OF THOSE , whose collective vote matters , more than OURs . We CAN , also , bring in , THE Change , we NEED !

Sir, I have been on deputation with the NSG for two tenures and during my 30 years I have fought for the in the 1971 operations as well as various Counter insurgency operations both at eastern as well as western sector. I am in total agreement that the media over stepped their roll a lot. They may have achieved very good TRP yet I feel they were also compromising the security of the security forces by disclosing the facts about the operations which could have been passed on to the terorists. We need to be more responsible as a nation. Regards, Col L K Das

Rajeev Murarka, New Delhi
It takes just a little amount of common sense to understand the consequences of live feed of counter terrorist operations. One of the prominent News channel presenter was livid when the live feed was restricted for a couple of hours. He took upon himself as his divine responsibility to gather and show the minute by minute details to the armchair audience. How it helped the common citizen to help the counter operations is not particularly understandble except of course the perpetrators of the heinous crime. The very patriarch of the electronic media who were blasting the politicians and authorities for their apathy and indifference, in their singular dash for TRPs compromised the lives of hostages and the gallant men in uniform equally and are as big a culprit as the callous leaders of our country. Ironically, these were the educated lot. I am really glad that someone has taken such an initiative instead of just discussing this in the drawing rooms and board rooms over a cup of coffee. May Force be with us.

i totally agree with you and added to all this i also would like to condemn the way one of the prestigious news channels boasting itself of being the only channel showing the photographs of the terrorists clicked by exclusively by its reporters n photographers and claiming that the close up live coverage was being telecast exclusively on their channel alone. it was highly disgraceful on the part of all the media personnel who had gathered near The Taj for the live coverage,behaving like fishermen competing with one another in their endeavour to be the first ones to interview the Chief of NSG, when he wanted to address them after the Operation at The Taj was over.it was in no way better than our MPs creating chaos at The LokSabha.there\'s another point i\'d like to bring in to everybody\'s notice. when Mr.Pranab Mukherji addressed, reacting to the offer made by foriegn countries to help India, he said Indian government turned down the offer saying that we are ruling the country for 51 years and we are capable of handling the situation on our own. well i felt it is result of the country being ruled by self centred political parties for so long that the people of this country are compelled to suffer all this.don\'t you all think so? and if so don\'t we need to bring about a drastic change in our electoral system so that the so called \"BY THE PEOPLE, OF THE PEOPLEAND FOR THE PEOPLE \" DEMOCRACY WHICH HAS COMPLETELY LOST ITS MEANING IN TODAY\'S SCENARIO REGAINS ITS TRUE VALUE AND TRULY RESPOSIBLE CITIZENS OF THE COUNTRY TAKE CARE OF THE COUNTRY\'S DEVELOPMENT AND SECURITY ON A DAILY BASIS?

I completely and wholeheartedly agree to what Mr. Vishal Dadlani and this petition. I thought of this the moment I saw live written on this and when a news reporter mentioned something about some fireman\'s location. This sure compromises the security of the folks who are trying to secure us. i thank Vishal for the initiative taken.

Hi Vishal, I thank you whole-heartedly for initiating this. Actually, on the 2nd day of attacks, I was furious on hearing the anchor on India TV saying \"Police have distanced all media people, but WE are showing you exclusive coverage.\". They were trying to show their sense of responsibility towards the common man. They have done this once (probably many times!) before when some millitants broke out firing and bombing in Jammu, sometime back in 2006. For me that was the first time, to see such \'action\' live. So I was also glued to the TV Set. This time, it was really beyond limits. The reporters were pestering the Commando chief/Military officers to share the further action plan. I was planning to call up them and make them aware what harm they were doing. But I wanted to do it in LIVE as well, otherwise my call would not have been entertained. However I could not find a way to do it. Government could have stopped it immediately, but in our governments, who really thinks for the nation. They work for their parties and they don\'t have their mind. All they know is to follow the command from their party\'s high-command. Ironically, someone (police/military....) switched cable connections in Taj in the evening, even after knowing that the terrorists had satellite phones and were getting updates from across borders. Fortunately, next day, all operations ceased. But for better future, I want the government to define a code-of-conduct for media, especially in times of national security crisis. And we citizens must make sure that the media observe it thoroughly. Once again thanks for opening a petition!

Good Luck to you in your mission. Thank you for taking up this important issue. I think the TV channels go overboard and they have to understand that in such sensitive matters, they should not think of TRP but criticality of the matter.

It would have been enough on the media part just to provide the people with the news and not the complete coverage because of which our National commandos have faced problems to wipe out the terrorists and to save the hostages. I appreciate Mr. Vishal Dadlani\'s effort to bring a small change.

What has been written on the role of media is correct the media should not be allowed where such operation are going on.when 150 people die they describe it as breaking news.This is very bad on media part

Wish you success in this...you need to ask for complete media blackout of material that could aid or hamper rescue mission.

SUMIT SAURABH, MUMBAI
Our country is ravaged by many problems today. One of them is irresponsible, TRP hungry and idiotic electronic media. There \"live coverage\" way of news reporting has reached its moronic zenith, in this particular incident. In the name of \"freedom of speech\" and \"fourth pillar of democracy\" they are doing any thing they want to boost there TRP, however anti national that may be. Thanks to Vishal for igniting this fire.

Kaustubh, Thane
Vishal, I\'m totally with you on this and so is my family. We were agast at what we were seeing and couldnt believe this was being allowed. I very much resonate your feelings on this topic. Thankfully, everyone I know is safe and we thank God for that. Some of our other fellow countrymen/women and friends from around the world who were visiting our country weren’t that fortunate. I’ve been saying this for the last couple days, so sending it to you too – “I do not know who did this; nor can I imagine any cause that would justify this. But I know this: no matter who did this, no matter why, the terror that has been wrought in Mumbai is vile, inhuman and unjustifiable. We must speak out against it. I want to say this to everyone who’s ever been impacted by such carnage: I stand with you today – in prayer and in solidarity! ” As you can probably guess, I’m REALLY pissed at the happenings and the way it was dealt with by the politico fraternity! I hope the soul of the martyrs from the carnage rest in peace and the country does what it can to help their families in their time of extreme grief! Thanks for taking the first step of actually DOING something! Best regards, Kaustubh 9930305758

After the mumbai incident it seems like media did greater destruction than the terrorists. It inadvertantly helped teh terrorists in teh action. It helped in taking terror to every single house with a TV in India,there by instilling fear and total lose of confidence in the system which i believe is counter productive. 3.It projected the anger of a few 100s of Mumbaikars, and rightly so, as teh nations emotion against politicians and politics. 4. It consioulsy added to the depoliticisation of the society which is a greater crime on democracy than what the terrorists have done.

I would like to extend this petition to include all military operations handled by our Armed Forces. I would also like to request this so called \'responsible media of India\' to stop selling misery of Indian people. How a person whose son has died will feel but still they ask same question. There should be some human right rules for these journalists also.

YOGENDRA MAHESHWARI, MUMBAI
Not only the present crisis, the Indian electronics media has not shown any self restraint in many earlier occassions. Like politicians Media too has become a class which is ever ready to take milage out of any crisis even (terrorist attack) I think if court/constitution cant restrict them they should be tactfully restricted by the executive bodies. after all what is the use of media or any agency which does harm instead of benifit to the country. If any of our security person has died due to live coverage is the media going to accept the responsibility for that.

Sensationalism of any kind is not news. Responsible ethical journalism is.. It’s high time the media of our country gets back to the ethics of journalism which seem to be lost in the trivial TRP battle and start reporting news responsibly - keeping the larger picture in mind and not just their TRP ratings. What happened in Bombay was a media disaster to say the very least and it is imperative that a code of conduct and news reporting be put in place. It’s a sad truth that so many lives were put into danger and lost due to the minute by minute “live” reporting. The media can argue that they were doing there job and wanted the citizens to be aware of what the situation is – but then in that case – haven’t they heard of a Deferred Live Reporting option?!! I whole heartedly support this petition as what happened to Bombay – the living, breathing city – the city of dreams – the city that never stops – should NEVER happen again. And WE need to take steps to ensure that – to ensure our safety – to ensure our security – to ensure that responsible news reporting is what the media of our country stands for and not the sad circus of ‘breaking news contests’ and ‘TRP wars’ it has become today.

There is a legal framework for this sort of thing, it\'s called, and just to be sure you understand it, i\'ll give you the full form... A Public Interest Litigation. It involves going to court, using lawyers and other such... the day you want a co-signee on a PIL, you\'ll have my signature. This is not going to do anything. I appreciate the use of the web, but let\'s do it right...

Since television broadcasting is relatively new for journalism in India, may I suggest all journalists undergo sensitive issues handling training and be suitably certified by an established foreign body. Only such certified reporters and camerpersons should be allowed in sensitive news zones.

Even if this matter is not taken by the Bombay High Court, the Supreme Court ought to take into consideration these factors while prescribing guidelines on the issue of freedom of press, which I assume it is going to do sometime soon. The other thing I, speaking for myself, fail to understand is that while it was completely within the powers of the government to gag the media during these operations, why was it not done?

Manjot Kaur, Canada
Thanks to Vishal for this. I agree with Vishal! Please look into the matter seriously. Thanks! It\'s for our Nation!

Srinivasa Rao Chalamala, Hyderabad
First I appreciate the efforts of the Mr. Vishal for bringing this to our notice. When the incidents like attacks , explosions are shown in television channels continously the citizens may be caught in dilemma to go out or not. Already seeing attacksevery part of the country people are scared to go out. This affect the business and day to day life. Even the people who want to invest in the infrastructure will be afraid of investing thinking that there is no security. Most important thing is , few years back even a single causality was a concern for us, but now even hundreds of causalities not having an impact on our feeling. Now we just got used to see big numbers and does not care about incidents where one or two casaulities are there. This way the TV channels making us heartless. There is one more thing I want to add, there are some breathholding reveliation of some of the criminals in recent times that they learnt what they do from television channels, which broadcast CRIME TIME programmes( Especially TELUGU TV channels) during late night. In these programmes they explain how the criminal carried his operation with characters. I do not have a confidence in our leaders, but I am sure that our judicial system curb these kind of programmes and wake up our leaders on this issue. I am hearing a panel and guidelines being setup for controlling the TV content. But the channel owners are pressurising the govt. not to go ahed with the guidelines given by the panel. I request our legal experts bring some light on this as well

Karthik S, Bangalore
well, its true that media was covering some of the abovge mentioned during the 1st two days, which they should have acted on by 2nd day. so yes, hope this petition fulfils it purpose.

I whole heartedly support the need to censor the media and lower the sensation parameter when such critical operations are being executed. Would also like to question why some of the media are given un-controlled freedom to air rumours and feed into the fear of the already affected citizens. Responsible Journalism also died a silent death on 26th Nov 08! For what - increasing TRP\'s?

There should have a been a central control room (set by India govt.) and the right inofrmation should have been paased to all TV Channels. TV channels should have not telecasted the plans of our brave commmndaos, which indeed helped the terrorist. S Bujone

The fact that news channels have been sensationalizing the news items is nothing new. It has been going on for the last 4 to 5 years and it is increasing to irritating proportions. In a bid to out-do each others, they are not thinking what effect it can have on he situation. I fully agree that these channels should be reigned and that they should put country before themselves in case of sensitive issues. They should be allowed to broadcast only if the government gives a green signal.

Manish Joshi, Mumbai
I understand the anger and frustration combined with other emotions everyone in the country is going through.However, I would like to point that nothing will change unless we really want to change things.It has to be from grass root level. Media can be banned but who will stop the hundreds who were standing in front of Taj/Oberoi/Nariman House when it was burning,projecting it as a movie shoot? It was as if everyone wanted to be on the camera. If we ourselves are not responsible, how can we expect anyone to do the job responsibly? Its not just terrorism that we are dealing with, its a whole lotta things combined and unless we put a sincere effort in doing things right,nothing will work,no matter how much security we have or how many petitions we file.

Enough is enough. Electronic media has no right to play with saftety of our armed forces and citizens.

Deepak Nautiyal, New York, New York
I fully agree with this petition, and reiterate need for an enforceable yet pragmatic code-of-conduct/code-of-ethics for media professionals while providing coverage for any issue sensitive to internal-security of India. Also, we want our media personnel to undergo proper annual training programs to help prepare them understand various complex and sensitive issues involved in providing emergency-coverage of situations such as recent Mumbai attacks. Lastly, I would like to suggest to all media companies to create a self-regulatory organization to enforce such code-of-conduct…as we don’t want (and trust) Indian government to be overseeing any such process. In spite of mistakes like these, I would still like to take this opportunity to congratulate the Indian media for their activist-like-conduct in waking up the Indian public to challenge the corrupt, insincere, inept, and third-class political leaders of India. This is a big service that Indian media is doing for the nation.

Dear Vishal, I fully understand and support your point.Since this issue, which you have raised, is to bring in the entire media fraternity under a Model or Moral Code of Conduct, i would like to suggest that you address this petition to the Hon\' Chief Justice Of India instead of CJI of Bombay. Donno whether some have already suggested this. But I hope Our SC is more equipped and with its vast jurisdiction, we could challenge the so called \"freedom of Press\" which during our independence struggle had its real meaning and served the real purpose and lost its glory midway because of few elements. regards, Jagadeesh

The media should show a lot of restraint. It is worth applauding that they put their lives on danger and bring us live updates and pictures, but they should not in any way give out the position of the police and NSG to the terrorista.

Shivani Raina,
Raymond, New Delhi
When journalism begins to become irresponsible and threaten innocent lives, there should be a system in place to end it. Being outside a given situation and reporting on it in a manner only to get elevated TRPs by broadcasting sensitive and classified information makes innocent lives vulnerable. Especially when it is known that the hotels have access to television and news networks, the terrorists may not necessarily be fools. Giving away such information is as good as siding with the enemy. Such a system must be put in place so as to stop misuse of a much respected network, although it may be even our only source of information. A byte can always be deferred live later. Media umbrellas need to realize their responsibility to the people they serve, if they truly believe in serving the people.

Amol Parashar, Mumbai
Kuntal Bhogilal, Bombay
What about the role played by media reporting that was highly sensationalistic, magnifying the fear and outrage rather than giving facts simply which they should be doing. This magnification and exploitation of fear and outrage (which in any case is legitimately there in people\'s mind) plays into hands of the terrorists. We don\'t need slightly hysterical journalists with running mascara trying cash in on already saddened and outraged sentiment.

1.This has been a wake up call for all of us. All of a sudden ppl are angry with our \"leaders\". I ask, What is new??? I have been angry and disgusted with most of these \"leaders\" for ages now. Many ppl feel the same way I am sure. But what have we done in the past and what (more importantly) are we going to do about it now? 2. Media channels using \"exclusive\" pics and videos is expected. It may be wrong, but thats what they will do to get more ppl to watch their channels! Lets think forward, a little long term. What can be done now? This has been an eye opener. Lets tackle the LARGER issues that this attack has brought to light. Lets make this change happen!! I think we NEED it!

I think that it is high time that such a petition was filed. I am a member of the Press and I have worked with some of the best houses in the industry. And how the system works — it\'s no longer about the news, it\'s about being which new channel had the best coverage. As it is each time, they out up the tag \'exclusive\', you feel like laughing or squirming. Journalism, has become an industry where no really gives a damn about the news, all they care about is TRP. Also, can you imagine, we are still such a naive nation where it takes hours for the security forces to relise that the terrorists are far more eqiped than they are, that they have the intelligence to use \'our media\' as the mass weapon? The Live telecast was stopped towards the fag end of the operation when it had taken plenty of Lives! Going live should not mean taking others lives! Should it?

It is up to us to bring the change we desire so let\'s take the first step and bring about an awareness. Tell the powers that be -Enough is enough! We are sick & tired of the politicians mouthing empty platitudes. Gone is the time to talk, it is the time to DO!

Enough is enough media, you forgot the whole purpose of your existence, its not to make money by increasing TRPs out of disasters such this. Well, we shouldn\'t blame only media for broadcasting live feeds of terror drama, but also people who enjoyed it like live cricket match..I can say, I didn\'t see single TV channel on that day, rather I relied on news (in text) on website...Did you? I think its time to set some rules for media for what to/what not to broadcast..Same rule applies to us as well, we should know what to watch and what to avoid...Jai Hind !!

Thanks vishal .Thank you for being the unified voice that has not only raised a genuine concern about \"LIVE\" media coverage of incidents like this,but also the practical liabilites caused by the same. I strongly agree and believe that every channel would have jumped out of joy looking at their TRP ratings climb, however tragic the events resposible may be. The morale value of \"LIVE\" media is practically zero ,with journalist fighting over each other to dig awards out of situations like this. They have portrayed mumbai tragedy and death with an added spoon of medias very own **** , Which iam sure has left a real bad taste in most of us.But this time the taste will stay forever.

Media in mumbai is not concerned with how bad the situation is, they are concerned with how high their ratings will go. Media is immature and irresponsible.

Anurag Garg, Navi Mumbai
I agree

Omkar Halwai, Kalyan
I totally agree with Vishal and was myself aghast at the TV coverage of the blasts by the news channels. The channels should have a code of self-censorship otherwise it will have a negative effect on the efforts of our secutirty forces.

The TRP and Exclusive coverage war in such cases should be stopped.

Trushit Trivedi, Mumbai
Let us be more responsible by remaining alert and avoiding corruption to avoid such horifying incidents for Mumbai\'s sake!!

Indira Nagesh, Bangalore
Media should be more responsible henceforth..hope something is done about it in legislation.

I totally agree. These days the media wants to capture eyeballs at any cost. It must be stopped.

Kashyap Swamy, London
A very valid point. Competition between members of the press has resulted in unhealthy sensationalism and sometimes this even affects national security.

News Channel were bz increasing their TRPs when people were being killed. We should stop this commercialisation and make news channel more responsible.

Great petition.. we need some more for many incapable,and spineless politicians also who earn their bread through false promises and humiliating martyrs families..

supriya, Hyderabad
I agree, attacks on terriost should not shown live through media which will help the terriost to get a safe edge on whats going out of his view.

Surbhi, Monroe Twp.NJ,USA
Even in the amidst of this tragedy the Media is still concerned about their own ratings.I personally saw it on one of the channels ,there was a phone call from a person hiding in his room telling ***Tak news about his location and fear and all of a sudden the call drops out & our so called great reporters tell us that they r trying to reach the number again.Senseless indeed ,u have no idea where this poor man is & if due to your stupid phone call if his phone rings & whether the terrorists r around .....Shame on the Mighty Media more Strict Regulations needed.

Senthilkumar Selvaraj, Chennai
A very good effort. I really feel this a big mistake by the media to air live coverage of the terrorist attack.

Vijayam, Hyderabad
I completly agree with your veiw and appreciate the thought , yes we can make a differnce to the nation with such kind of intiatives.Great thought and its an inspiration to all of us out here vishal. Vijayam

Mumbaikar, Mumbai
One of the News Channels themselves said that in Russia during such hostage situations or terrorist attacks civilians and press are kept 2 kms away from the crime scene. Why cant we follows the same rule in India as well. Not to mention, but the way these terrorists had got ammunitions in our country and made fake ids as well who knows that an undercover terrorist is a media guy / press capturing everything Live like other news channels and giving live information to the other terrorists at the Crime Scene...

Gopal D, Panaji
I fully agree with this petition. Bcoz in such terror attack the operation of commandos should be kept confidential. Good step taken by you. Thanks.

Tony Peter, Bangalore
There is every possibility that the News Channels would have revealed the rescue operation carried out by out armed forces and commandos. The Government should put the rules in place and follow up so that lives can be saved in the future. Jai Hind.

sudha kotian, thane
your initiative will definitely put the tv channels to task for their highhandedness and their hunger for the trps.pl keep the good work going

Priya Sinha, Mumbai
The sheer audacity of the Media, not for the sake of truly dissipating information, but just to increase their viewership ratings and bucks out of it is what appalls the most . If it is for dissipating information, then there has to be a serious and mature handling of such sensitive situations.

Its good to see someone take a step to make the media behave more responsibly. They have acted in a completely reckless mannar and gone great lengths to sensationalise news and gain TRPs. About time some laws were put in place to get them to conduct themselves more responsibly. Thanks for taking on this initiative

mansi, delhi
a little step to save our world. thanx for taking the initiative and i hope the entire nation joins inn.

i am with you. There should be code of conduct for these channels and no such encounter or war should be telecasted live as can give clues to enemies leading to putting safety of our force in danger.

Pankaj, London
All the points are absolutely right!! I was thinking while watching on 27th Nov that if it is really live what media channels are showings then they (media) are out of their mind. It must be stopped.
