Direct questions on Zee

IN Media Watch Briefs | 06/12/2017

On Dec 6 Zee News’ edition of “Game of Gujarat” held in Sabarkantha was quite incredible.  For starters the anchor thrust his mike at one person after another in audience asking,  when you see Bhagwan Ram in that state in Ayodhya, does it make you sad? Dukh hota hai?   Then he asked the Congress panelist on the show: “Will you put your hand on your heart and say whether you believe in Bhagwan Ram? Do you want the temple to be built?” The man said the matter was pending before the Supreme Court. “No but why can’t you say—do you want the temple to be built or not?”

Sarma tweeted that he was outraged that he was being linked to a man he had never known or met in his life.
