We have an ideology which talks about one nation, one religion, one culture, one idea – and whatever doesn’t fit into that has to be physically eliminated, said Khalid.

News media is in a crisis & only you can fix it

You are reading this because you value good, intelligent and objective journalism. We thank you for your time and your trust.

You also know that the news media is facing an unprecedented crisis. It is likely that you are also hearing of the brutal layoffs and pay-cuts hitting the industry. There are many reasons why the media’s economics is broken. But a big one is that good people are not yet paying enough for good journalism.

We have a newsroom filled with talented young reporters. We also have the country’s most robust editing and fact-checking team, finest news photographers and video professionals. We are building India’s most ambitious and energetic news platform. And we aren’t even three yet.

At ThePrint, we invest in quality journalists. We pay them fairly and on time even in this difficult period. As you may have noticed, we do not flinch from spending whatever it takes to make sure our reporters reach where the story is. Our stellar coronavirus coverage is a good example. You can check some of it here.

This comes with a sizable cost. For us to continue bringing quality journalism, we need readers like you to pay for it. Because the advertising market is broken too.

If you think we deserve your support, do join us in this endeavour to strengthen fair, free, courageous, and questioning journalism, please click on the link below. Your support will define our journalism, and ThePrint’s future. It will take just a few seconds of your time.

  1. If that’s true then I would ask Mr. Omar Khalid whether the leftists do sing the National Anthem? Do they shout any slogan against India ? If not then why you take shelter behind them ? If being a Muslim in India today is a disadvantage, why you still studying in JNU with government subsidies ? If JNU is closed today, where will you go ? Being an eighty two year old man I am sorry to ask you these questions. Think a little, no where the Communists say hate your motherland/fatherland. I know you are doing Ph.D, but I am a mere matriculation, but learnt to praise my country, though I and my family was driven out of erstwhile East Pakistan in 1950, when my learned father was killed. Mr. Omar, you are younger than my grandson. So my advice is please try to respect your country.
