Watch | After Channel Airs False Claim on Temple, Rajasthan Police Register Case

The Wire's Arfa Khanum Sherwani discusses the show against which FIRs were filed with senior journalists N.K. Singh and Umakant Lehariya.

Rajasthan Police have filed two first information reports against News18 India’s editor and anchor Aman Chopra on allegations of disturbing religious peace in the country.

During his show on April 22, Chopra said, “It is such a big coincidence that two days after a bulldozer was used to demolish the gate of a mosque in Delhi’s Jahangirpuri, three temples were demolished in the Alwar district of Rajasthan. One of the temples is 300 years old. Is this a mere coincidence or are these events interconnected? Is this revenge for Jahangirpuri?” It was also claimed that the temples were being razed in Alwar under the Congress government’s watch.

Alt News debunked this news in its report ‘News18 Falsely Claims Temple Razed in Alwar as “Revenge” for Jahangirpuri Demolition Drive’.
