11:36 am
to go, or amongst other things and journalism is a challenge and india and independence. right. not as a backlash against the backlash, the peeping from the majority regime. it's, it's an unpopular job right now, but the right thing to do, i wondering john is at what point that you were very, very aware that your work was be money to do. you were being monitored, or some agile pressure being put on you as journalists run it. you start well, for me to do this government, everybody has been reacting in already surprised mine and this should because we are assembling a civilian steve, you're not doubling. actually, we are a civilian beach right now, but here is a government, here is the cim with the prime minister in the movie on her own minister. i'm a shop who how during the 10 your as group, and she'll minister and go draw you snooping. mcgann resumes on, not just journalists, but also civilians. so this does not come as a surprise,
11:37 am
but the fact that they have to woodley, and recently used almost every, every mechanic, every tool that is available with them to get been picked up in june. this would work, they do not appreciate and like, i mean i am, i'm somebody was used to this 2010 when i got the homeless rope in there who now for the stroke, which was not on the trip in the artist did i got a full time phase 2 new thing looked like, call out with you being followed around the details of your family members being out in public intelligence officials coming down to your house and asking you about your bank accounts. all of this is happen. it's happening to me as i speak to you yesterday. i spent 12 hours at the income tax office in mom buy another big question. i was being asked about my affiliation with international organizations. why do i write? but i'm not the why do i speak to the b, b c. what does my for to think of this as far because it's not something we chose,
11:38 am
but it is something that has been inflicted on us for the to that the speak. now you can share with us some of the ways that you have made headlines or, or the way that surveillance is made headlines of u. n. g and journalists. now we see certainly cause break in attempt this, this is scary. ok. and then we move on to the next story and let me just show you here. this is when it becomes really serious. your di journeys may have the she's facing death threats and stalking. they how, how does this happen? what journalism will you doing? where your life is being put at risk. oh, thank you. first for giving me the job to talk about this. i do want to say that something like i said that the last 7 years, it has been just a lot of independent john. and i do want to say, thought like any government is fond of doing this, questioning them,
11:39 am
it's not like the earlier government did not send us. the notices or the commission water change in the last 7 years is that the government actually implicates jordan to increment to keep the enjoy order really just cases. and which is i the, the punishment, the adage becomes all the more significant because the big thought long book who actually reaching in the course and i for one also have the criminal cases against me. theater. you just do the pieces that would not be in, in prison for all 7 yards and they keep on all of them. so my report dodge to the particular report that i did was one of the major investigation that i did was i dug out documents and i take a dugout testimony and that's how they do funding maintenance right. ring has been shot, taking, choosing between the issue will be $211.00 from lafayette,
11:40 am
indiana to job and job to india for the purpose of indoctrination invalid to do with them. and that is something that got me criminal cases, a bottom that i've also didn't investigate how to get in, which is 2000 popping up on the encounters and how i found out that out of the city many seek of we pseudo most men and people for muslim communities like like that. and this is something that has not got me thought all my but also for myself, this the john buddy, after 5 months of being stopped and said that somebody would say, some people deeply talking my location and telling me holiday. after that me and how. 7 i'm particularly pointing out,
11:41 am
i'd be 40 but i just mentioned somebody actually they could bake into my house. 7 and i also want to say that i knew supposed been living in delhi, lighting in english, international, racial, even then it was difficult for me to even get the student to student something. so the people who are doing it, i didn't hand in glove with the machinery and machinery, actually seemed to be kind of the kind of attacks on john. that's something i would say. again, like i said, i will both live with wi fi got into the tuition because all the more difficult for jaundice wouldn't let us wouldn't work. but we'll also facing them with the situation. but they have more often let me show this headline with you. i know you are very familiar with his headline, but i want you to see if you can on packet for i international audience to explain exactly what is going on here. the stories that we are hearing all stories of
11:42 am
intimidation. here's the headline snoop list has 40 indian journalists forensic tests confirm precedence of peck of pegasus spyware, on some. this is by where that is often brought allegedly, by governments, in order to keep a check up of what citizens are doing it usually via mobile phones. your organization was on this list. what is this telling us about india's government right now and how comfortable they are with publications journalists doing their work. yeah, definitely. as i said in the last 2 decades, these 7 years have been, i will say the most difficult years for me as a journalist and also as a citizen of india, where journalism itself has become a crime. you know, it has become so dangerous to be a political journalists sitting and working out of new daily and reporting on that
11:43 am
in the government as a tool. my friends have already said that how, you know, but being the indian in the media into obedience has already become kind of a project partnering with the government. but even if by its own standards, what's happening now, this whole snooping business and also income tax reads on newspapers that i would say it kind of, you know, sense of scary, a new bar for journalist and, and remember when you were talking about the snooping ping the why it is also part of the consortium that conducted the investigation and they will friends and family people who are coming that one is going to be the next grade on your office and you and will you a couple of days ago i was at home i was about to report my show and i got a call from office, from one of my colleagues saying that there is a policeman asking for me asking for my number and my address. it's a trial. he had a list of people he had missed with him, which had people like by
11:44 am
a former colleague and indian actress for sort of that is another person who documents you know, these widens against the minorities and me. and he insisted that you wanted to talk to me. i'm sitting at home with my family about to go to report my show and i get this call from the man who says, this is nothing madam, this is just run up to independence day. you know, we are just doing the routine check and then we see the deputy police commissioner, he's tweets, he's applies to the wires that it does tweets and he says, this is just a routine check. and this is part of the empty terrorism extra fight. so imagine now policeman, walking into unusual for m b, m checks and then to before independence day. so, you know, the way the indian government is trying to project blood journalists who are asking questions of the government was speaking to, to, to power the enemy of the people as the enemy of the states. so you don't, i wouldn't be hesitant in saying that now
11:45 am
a large part of that section which supports the ruling b, j. b and the artist says, and our prime minister, you know, a notch section i would say actually kind of don't dislike people. bid they dislike people like me, last question because he has been and to a position of some kind of maybe a board that you can be on the question of him. so all 3 journalists sitting here, incidentally, all women in a very paid to the society like in the we are the times. i think it also says a lot about the indian media also, which is already given up to do so let me share with you some of the comments we're getting on youtube right now. this is sophia, and for any one that believes press freedom exist in india, just look at the number of journalists that murdered up to i have a case followed against them. another comment here from youtube right now. thank you. audience. if taking part in the show, journalists are getting arrested every time they say something or published fax. the problem with india is the b, j. p. government is becoming like
11:46 am
a dictatorship or so a terry and government let us go to that government. this is the 18th of july. this is the 18 minister pushing back on the allegations of surveillance. take a look. in the past, similar made regarding the use of record goes on what can go the vector. this is jessica wiggly denied by on 14th, including the president of it in july. 2000 also appear to be an attempt to understand that new since june. as you can tell, just from the noise level that not everybody was in agreement run. what impact is that having on journalism in india, from your perspective? so quickly, i mean one of them falling on the list of you know, potential i will go into that. this is the most bizarre thing offer. so that was
11:47 am
really vital. who is the t minister? the i t minister was found on the list of people who have potentially pegasus spyware on that phone. that is bizarre. all right. let me run a couple vindictive ment, scientific vindictive government for him. he does not just keep a job on his enemies, but also keep the job job on his allies. and that's the last explain it. majority the, the g. it's been dictate majority in regina that they are constantly so railing. people who are giving opinions about them, the general who was just talking about, about what's up and what's up seeing that there's not many such evidence the same the, the move in the, into parliament. what's up said that the report about the guess of snooping. if something's a downing, i scared them, so i think it's just kind of contradict what exactly the minutes just sit in the
11:48 am
parliament. but like i said, india, india is taking every book that exist. bought a car data, richie, and john list have always been the enemy of the state. i remember since the d, i think governor of the time magazine that kind of host a lot of tools on to show media start talking about me receiving funding. i want to just take a little step back because not everybody would have seen this magazine cover. so start at the beginning of the story, but make it a brief story, go ahead. right. and so during the 2nd wave of go with 19 the devastating 2nd we will go with 90. i work doing multiple reports for the washington portion for the time, not being gullow that the time has been covered. 2 days later, mr. moody's lackey goes on, goes on television channels and calls me a why to john list a pretty good with the c i a and 3 days later i get a notice on the income tax. then my director said, my father gets a notice,
11:49 am
my sister gets the motors, my brother gets something complex, department, so all, and what did i do? i just got the story for di, max, the window to regina. this is, i wanted to say the 2 ladies deepening india's covert 19 crisis. so is it the critique of the government? the got you into trouble? it is a critique. you see what, what happened to denny park. good. another publication there provision because these are the publications that would images of dead bodies floating on began juice . and then the, the income tax department to be was there's a 70 year old, a case, a legit case against these publications. it does the same. but john, listen, the police, a journalist called to be government has been, has been jesus for the last 7 months for just reporting on the gang grip up a lot. got good. he also happens to be a muslim who are the,
11:50 am
what condemned in india. so you're, you're a woman, you're john, you're slim, you're anti movie, your critical movie. i mean, that takes all the boxes and this is what we have to based on a daily basis. so the gas is just one more big model of what the government has not done to lead or possibly was playing all the flight with the us. it's not the 1st time that india has discovered by just being used to move on john lives 2 years ago, there was a dumpling expose the on how software is being used to monitor the activities of multiple journalists to be our enemies of the state. unfortunately, we should not be living like this, but this is how it has now come about and the ingram will be, is coming across as it be when picked up, man, a man will not be going to thing to this conference in 70 years. all of his regime in which he has been leaving the country not doing with the most devastating good wave i think has detained for journalists,
11:51 am
could not be more clear with the fact that i have, you know, just guess, just give me just a little slip of a moment here because i want to bring in the voice of repression because i want it's around, the world may be thinking, well, what's the worst that can happen? your phones are being tapped. you're being monitored. this is ruth ash telling the story. what happened when he was doing his journalists and it landed him in prison . taking up my in my reporting, i show state oppression against the citizens of this country. that is widely central. i. p has put pressure on me to stop my reportage. when i didn't listen to them, i was put in jail under the unlawful activities prevention act. they could not file a chart sheet against me. so 6 months later, i was really i was just finishing of his comment there. thank you. repressed,
11:52 am
appreciate you. i knew he wanted to pick up that, but i'm going to focus you in on what you choose. audience is also asking, which is india is pretty low down on the press. freedom index. pretty low down, i think is 180 and and it is like a 142 or something has if says, what does india need to do to get a better higher press freedom in depth? how do conditions improve the author ahead you know, whatever i know they had said, i think i completely agree with both of them, but also to remember the tall and noblest this government is. and this shows the sign of desperation to when they are coming after this one of the 2 largest selling newspapers in india, you're the dennis pasco, and site says it has a readership of 66000000 re do. can you imagine the size of the readership? so what i was trying to say is it is like in the newspaper, in the heartland newspaper, which consists of not in the world bank. and this is no small side. this is no nation news,
11:53 am
generally in the english speaking these channels. so if the government doesn't even think that these large scale newspapers, the major newspapers are not even giving him and his back in government favorable coverage, which means the government is there. anybody just put it and no, but now you're saying that what we really can do, i think i would like to dick you a little back to what's this whole i do, you do is i do have been in india which now have been implemented the wire in my organization is one of the leading lead petitioners in the port and which says the government is actually, you know, making rules for journalists, which means you know, the government that i am reporting on, on their function. they are the ones who are making boots for me. so this is, this is hilarious and this is tragic. and you know, it gets the emergency fall was to even be lead or pulled on any news items. now, i did these, i have been contested, not just by this is something called the alternate media or just the nice english speaking new media. but by almost all of these news channels,
11:54 am
which manufactured this whole image of the movie, the larger than life. you know, a leader who's been waiting for the last 7 decades. so i think what needs to be done is already being done. the journalist who, what client, the journalist, who were almost an extension of that or in the public relation machine to be even, they have realized that this is not good enough. they will have to protect their rights. i think this time for journalists respectable who they are, which language which obligation which medium the working to come together and see media, feed them. and i want to squeeze in a ha, ha ha, i want to play this to you. effect is just give me a moment, hey, just so i can get in a hallway before the end of the show. now i'm, i'm looking at what maybe the action should be from the government. have a listen to this video comment and then briefly comment on the other side of it immediately. let's take a look. this is concerning the moment going to right from the start to be,
11:55 am
are you seeing the federal government issue a large number? and the reason for the online on been often targeting jenny and media industry, you move to another. and now you see the biggest project revolution where i was clear, unity problem, a lot of this problem. but a hi fi, a company is being used by government doctors to intruder on individuals in all our government, democracy in many others. and that's why we need to see action beyond the spirit. we need to actually responsibility from the federal government in india as well as getting back with abby uniform to make sure that this happens again. ne, how go ahead. ne, ha. oh i to be. oh, he was what is being said. i also want to add that this is not the government just
11:56 am
created. just to give you an example. bare minimum reporting that just required is inviting criminal cases, particularly against independent joint. because also i just see the corporate will, it makes sense in mainstream, you know, as part of the goal setting measure the euros have shut down, the entire responsibility is on independence. turn this into more to the 4th. and once the case is filed against them, it's fine for them to go back to it. having said that, i also want to say that this is also apart from the prime minister, not holding a press conference, a cabinet, mr. b kissing was the person who coined not just coin, but nominate the was calling for john, this would be in their job. so for instance, let me give you an example of fall and just join us in ms double district of innovation and they brief maintenance a sentence. go ahead,
11:57 am
go ahead. so i just wanted to say that this is that this, this government is not holding is not interested in being in the thing that them off the seats. and the reason why the best we don't in india is limited and falling down is because i've been able to see i've been weakened by they've got to regimen by here. i guess i can tell from what you've been saying and what you've been sharing that even being on the show, put you in some jeopardy. i appreciate your commitment to journalism and for appearing here on the stream, the audience have a look here on my laptop. you can follow the journalism of offer of ne ha, an runner on twitter. and there are various publications as well. thanks for watching. thank you. you too for your comments and questions. always appreciate them. i will see you next time. take everybody. ah
