Enough with the India bashing: Calls for a fresh perspective on India in the Western media

British media should visit the ground and report back instead of writing opinionated propaganda articles says Sam Stevenson, Assistant Editor of the Daily Express.

Sam Stevenson, Assistant Editor of UK-based newspaper Daily Express, says,

“I think it’s time to say enough with the India bashing. Down with the anti-India ‘Bakwas’. We need to come here and tell the true, positive stories of new India.

Unfortunately, a lot of the narratives that exist in London and across Europe are negative stories about India.

We’re hearing things like religious divisions, but that’s not what we’ve witnessed on the ground.

We’ve seen Muslim women in full burqas attending Narendra Modi’s rally. We’ve seen examples of the pluralism of this great and wonderful nation. We’re here to level up the British media’s coverage of this nation. And we’re here to get to the truth and find some real facts and bring them home to London.”

All the big players in British media should learn a lesson here. Since the elections started in India all major media houses are running biased, opinionated, false news and fake propaganda articles. It is clear that they are running those articles with an agenda to sabotage the elections with the intention to ‘dethrone’ Modi and get their ‘favourable player’ in the top seat.
