Attack on media houses and journalists
Press fraternity announces two-day media shutdown
ITANAGAR, Nov 10: Taking strong exception to the unabated and shameful attacks on
media houses and media persons despite deployment of police personnel, the members
of Arunachal Pradesh Union of Working Journalist (APUWJ) and Arunachal Press Club
(APC) in a meeting today unanimously expressed their strong resentment over the attack
on Echo of Arunachal and its Associate Editor Tapan Kr Das.
As a token of protest, both the organisations decided that all media houses -- print
and electronic - functioning from the Capital Complex, would shutdown on Monday and
A memorandum would be sent to Union Home and I & B Ministers to draw their attention
towards the atrocities repeatedly committed on the media persons of the state. Further
expressing deep regret that despite cooperation with the civil societies, some members
are resorting to pressure tactics and attacks, the members of APC and APWUJ unanimously
decided to indefinitely ban publications of news and advertisement of All Arunachal
Pradesh Public Transport Federation (AAPPTF). The same yardstick will apply for any
other organisations, associations, unions or political parties if they try to intimidate
or attack media houses or journalists in the near future. Also the meeting with editor
or journalist in connection with submission of a press release is henceforth strictly
prohibited and the press releases should be dropped in the press release box. The
police personnel on duty will enforce that no one dare enter the news room to create
disturbance. If it happens, the cops on duty must be held responsible.
Later in the evening IGP Sanjay Beniwal and Capital SP Surender Kumar invited media
person at latter’s office and assured early arrest of the culprits involved in the
EoA attack case and deployment of armed police personnel at media houses. Beniwal
also assured to issue status report of Arunachal Times’ Associate Editor Tongam Rina
attack case by Monday and added that the case will be taken over by CBI as soon after
all formalities are completed. He informed that such cases take time due to some
official formalities and therefore there has been some delay. CBI will soon designate
investigation officer as soon as the formalities are over.
Arunachal Times office was vandalized on April 15 last, its Associate Editor Tongam
Rina was shot at in front of the office on July 15 last and later two other staffs
were attacked on September 11 night. The GoAP, particularly the police department,
have given only ‘lip service’ without any result whatsoever to grant justice to the
press fraternity of the State.
Against all odds, the press persons with meagre salary continued to serve the society
but regrettably they are rewarded with attacks and assaults that demoralizes them
in continuing in this profession. Enough is enough. It is high time the GoAP and
the civil society should rise to the occasion and give freedom to the press for independent
While condemning in strongest term the brutal attack on journalist Tapan Das and
ransacking of the media house, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Arunachal Pradesh
urged the state Govt to ensure rule of law and pay heed to the primary responsibility
for the wellbeing of the common people. The ruling Govt in state can not escape from
its responsibility, the BJP said adding that there is no sign of safety and security
of local press even after the installation of CCTV cameras and security coverage
in media houses. Even a layman can perceive of the things that have been taking place
in the heart of state capital, the party said.
Point out the broad daylight rural bank robbery incident, the BJP further said that
the State government is responsible for the inadequate security measures and the
security lapses in Bank. It said the increasing criminal activities in the state
capital created panics in the capital dwellers.
The Nyishi Elite Society also vehemently condemned the attack on Echo of Arunachal
and its associate editor Tapan Das. The Nyishi Elite Society urged the Government
to pull-up the law enforcing machinery and ensure action promptly.
Terming the attack on Echo of Arunachal office and its associate editor Tapan Kumar
Das cowardice reflecting non-accommodative and undemocratic spirit, Arunachal Chamber
of Commerce & Industries (ACCI) today called for as level playing field for the media
to function independently.
The repeated attacks and intimidation of the media establishments and persons deserve
condemnation from all quarters and the state government should take stringent action
to bring an end to disturbance in public order, it said.
If this tribal society desires to prosper and grow, it has to respect the media and
facilitate its unbiased functioning without any coercion for it to keep a tab on
the three pillars of democracy – the executive, the legislature and the judiciary.
Meanwhile, Arunachal Civil Society (ACS) has strongly condemned the repeated attack
on media houses and journalists in state Capital. It further decided to stage dharna
in protest against deteriorating law and order situation of the state at Bank Tinali,

made its first appearance as demonstration sports in Seol Olympics in South Korea

level competitions till 1999. However, the performance gradually started to fall
down after the sport was included as full medal sport in the Olympics, mainly due
to lack of necessary equipments as World Taekwondo Federation (WTF) had made use
of EVA rubber mat, electronic trunk protector, electronic scoring system, sensor,
LCD monitor, sensor socks, head gear and other protective equipments compulsory for
conduction of the sport, which the association can not afford to get due to financial

It’s Deepawali, not Dhamaka-wali !!
Nyalleescopy By Nyali Ete
Diwali is one of the very dear festivals of Hindus. The most extravagant celebration
of the year marked by lavish spending on shopping, generous exchanges of gifts, greetings,
blessings, heart-out fun and laughter, reckless and mind-boggling bursting of fire
crackers through 3 days… with hangover persisting for some more days.
This auspicious occasion is, however, marked by accompanying pollution of our environment.
The remnants of gift wrappers, fire crackers and used-diyas litter nook and corner
of the streets across the cities. The festival leaves behind heaps of waste and garbage
everywhere the following days. Simultaneously, the dust, smoke and pungent smell
of harmful chemicals released from hundreds and thousands of fire crackers clog the
atmosphere; thus, adversely affecting the visibility as well as speeding up the onset
of the winter, besides, of course, deteriorating further the city’s already polluted
In addition, noise pollution during the festival goes higher than the usual level.
Sounds from bursting crackers raise the decibels little too much. The loud, chaotic
and irritating noise from bursting of crackers and music played is a bit harmful
to normal hearing of the people. Evidently, various health risks are inevitably intertwined
with this Diwali.
People are, however, not apologetic about their deliberate contribution in increased
pollution and degradation of our environment. Majority of them are, indeed, not really
aware that this mindless and impulsive ways of celebrating Diwali by bursting crackers
all through the night can, actually, be detrimental to our environment and, eventually,
raise serious health issues and problems.
One Dillu Don says, “Diwali has been celebrated since ages the way it is being celebrated
now. I’ve been celebrating the festival by bursting crackers with my family, relatives
and friends right through the nights and it’s, definitely, one occasion that I look
forward to very eagerly every year.”
Let’s see what Shriman Rajendra Gupta has to say. He quips, “For Hindus, it’s a matter
of faith as well as rich cultural legacy. Majority of us, generally, bond with our
cultural-past all the more immensely through this festival. One day bursting of crackers
and little bit of waste generated from these crackers and other stuffs will not choke
our environment as much.”
Nevertheless, not everyone subscribes to that notion of celebration of Diwali, at
least Shrimati Sree Lakshmiji isn’t, thankfully! She says, “Diwali is the festival
of lights; it’s a special occasion where relationships are reinforced through generous
exchanges of gifts, greetings and blessings. I celebrate by cleaning my home, painstakingly
and meticulously decorating each part of my home with colorful lights and diyas,
and distribute sweets to friends, neighbors, guests and others. This is one day of
bonding with the spirituality. I also go to temple for prayers and blessings of the
Almighty for unending peace and happiness, success, prosperity not just for myself,
but all around.”
Rightly so, Diwali, in essence, is the manifestation of the victory of virtue over
vice; good over evil and urge for good-will and prosperity for mankind. Regrettably,
world of market-driven economy, wide-spread consumerism and deliberate show-off of
materialistic possessions complemented by large disposable income has taken the soul
out of Diwali. The spirituality part of the festival has been buried by the capitalistic
“Let’s celebrate this festival of lights and colors with sweets and greetings, and
not noise and litter.”
