This week, host Basant Kumar is joined by Newslaundry’s Shivnarayan Rajpurohit and Main Media founder Tanzil Asif.
The conversation begins with Shivnarayan’s on the posters in Northeast Delhi asking Hindus not to sell their properties to Muslims. He recalls his conversations with Pradeep Sharma, the lawyer on whose behalf the posters have allegedly been issued.
Sharma, interestingly, has rented the first floor of his house to two Muslim families. “If a Muslim offers me Rs 1.3 lakh per gaz against Rs 1 lakh by a Hindu, I will surely sell it to the Muslim. It is not a small transaction. It’s a question of lakhs of rupees,” Shivnarayan quotes Sharma as saying.
The discussion then moves to Tanzil Asif’s , which fact-checked a report on the front page of which claimed that Hindus have been migrating from Bihar’s Seemanchal region.
Tanzil recalls most Hindus living in these villages were shocked at such claims and angry over the failure of legacy media to report on real issues.
