NEW DELHI (24, DEC,2013): Twitter has literally erupted with support for jailed Spiritual Leader Sant Shree AsaramJi Bapu. Sadhaks have chosen popular online microblogging platform Twitter to launch an all out attack on paid media and the biased law enforcement and legal system of the country that has taken clearly different approaches in handling cases of AsaramJi Bapu and fodder scam accused Lalu Prasad Yadav along with other people who have been accuse in grave crimes.
Reports of this protest wave has appeared in several reputed English and Hindi dailies of the Nation as well as in online news portals. According to report in an English daily, “Twitter is these days buzzing with tweets upon tweets demanding bail for Asaram Bapu”. Among several topics raised in Twitter protests are release of RJD leader Lalu, special treatment meted out to Tarun Tejpal and paroled TADA accused Sanjay Dutt. What is more interesting is the growing consciousness among masses and the dawning realization of injustice that has happened in case of the revered Hindu Guru. Further more, protesters have taken directly on the ruling party by exposing several criminal cases that are pending against pro-congress individuals.
It must however be pointed out that none of the three news channels: India TV, News 24 or News Nation has said a word about this mega event on Twitter, thereby raising questions about its journalistic integrity and its intentions to show the truth.
