Sudarshan TV case: Digital media spreading venomous hatred, government tells SC

Updated : September 21, 2020 09:32 PM IST

Digital media is "spreading venomous hatred," said the government to the Supreme Court during the Sudarshan TV case hearing. It also said that it was not necessary to regulate electronic and print media as a self-regulatory mechanism was already in place.

The Supreme Court on Friday had questioned Sudarshan TV over its 'Bindas Bol' programme, whose promo had claimed that the channel would show the 'big expose on conspiracy to infiltrate Muslims in government service', and asked whether media can be allowed to target the whole set of communities.
