Shyam SudanMedia is considered as the fourth pillar of democracy. No doubt for any democratic country it is mandatory to give all the privileges and freedom to media. Freedom of press and media is very necessary for the establishment of strong foundation of a democratic set up. But sometimes this extra freedom can be very harmful if one can’t understand its role and responsibility. No doubt in this digital era media is playing very pivotal and crucial role in narrating and exposing the reality behind the curtain.Media persons work day and night in compiling the data to explore the hidden facts and figures behind the wall. But sometimes to gain the publicity and TRP many news channels generally cross their limits. Now a days there is a custom of debate sessions on different news channels. No doubt in these debate sessions many intellectual and experts generally put their view points and ideas on different issues. Also these debate sessions are mandatory for these news channels to gain the popularity of their channels and TRP. Becuse millions of viewers generally get attracted towards such kind of discussions of experts and eminent personalities. But many times these news channels organize debates on various security issues.In such debate sessions mostly retired security personalities are invited for the brief discussion. News anchors generally ask questions on security strategies from these guests on live shows. Even these security experts explain the minute details and facts of their experienced life and work. These things are very harmful for the security point of view of our country. As we know these live debates are available at every digital platform, even in our neighbouring countries too. These news channels mostly compare the strength of our weapons, defence equipments and other security devices with our neighbouring countries. Every minute details of weapons are presented with accurate figures and with aunthetic statistics. No doubt these things are mandatory for creating psychological pressure in the minds of our enemies. But sidewise these things gives an advance alert to our enemies. We are surrounded by the most wicked and mischievous neighbourhood countries. These neighbouring countries are always in search of such kind of secret information from our side. Our open explanation of these security facts make things easy for their nefarious activities. Recently in Galwan valley we have confronted with such kind of problem from our neighbouring country. For many days the entire focus of our news channels was on Galwan valley. They presented every topographical details and statistical data of our side of Galwan valley with sketches,live videos and through graphs. Even different news channels gave the details of our important bridges,roads and other connectivity channels. It was also discussed in these news channels that what are our strength and weaknesses in that place.These things are very dangerous from our security point of view.Even during the air strike at Balakot when our captive pilot was discussing with Pak army in their custody. Our news channels were busy in presenting every minute detail of that captive pilot on every channel. He was trying to hide his personal identity in front of them as per protocol but our news channels narrated the real location of his hometown. Recently, five Rafale aircrafts were inducted in Indian Air Force. But every news channels is busy in explaining the details of their travelling route. Even it is highlighted with videos and pictures that where we stock these aircrafts and where we will use them in future. From their head to toe the complete scanning of their every part is explained by media on these news channels. Such things are very dangerous and horrific for our safety and security. Important restrictions must be imposed on media for such things. Moreover media also must understand this that it is not necessary and obligatory to present such kind of details on public platform for general public.Because every individual is not in real battlefield. We should behave like a responsible and patriotic citizen in this direction. Merely for TRP and publicity of news channels we can’t put the security of our nation at stake. Only permitted video clips and information from defence department be highlighted and discussed on news channels with only relevant and responsible news guests. Sometimes these fabricated and self composed videos from media put mental stress and other psychological pressure on the minds of public of the country. Many new young people who are desirous to enter in defence forces change their mindset by seeing such kind of fabricated military operations and warfare consequences in news channels.
