New Delhi: The Delhi High Court Friday restrained Sudarshan TV from telecasting its programme titled ‘Bindas Bol’, whose latest promo claimed that the channel was all set to broadcast a ‘big expose on conspiracy to infiltrate Muslims in government service’.

The show was scheduled to air tonight at 8 pm.

Justice Navin Chawla issued notice and sought responses of Central government, the Union Public Service Commission, Sudarshan TV, and its Editor-in-Chief, Suresh Chavhanke on a petition filed by former and present students of Jamia Millia Islamia University.

The high court listed the matter for further hearing on September 7.

The plea contended that the proposed broadcast sought to defame, attack and incite hatred against Jamia Millia Islamia, its alumni, and the Muslim community at large.

Why news media is in crisis & How you can fix it

India needs free, fair, non-hyphenated and questioning journalism even more as it faces multiple crises.

But the news media is in a crisis of its own. There have been brutal layoffs and pay-cuts. The best of journalism is shrinking, yielding to crude prime-time spectacle.

ThePrint has the finest young reporters, columnists and editors working for it. Sustaining journalism of this quality needs smart and thinking people like you to pay for it. Whether you live in India or overseas, you can do it here.

  1. If we believe TV media, RightWing politicians, many minsters of the government and Chief Ministers like the one from UP, only Muslims are the reason for India’s problems. Else we would have been very happy in our caste free, rich and gentle Indian society.
