December 4, 2008 4:32:16 PM IST Bollywood Trade News Network
The recent Mumbai terror attacks have attracted wide spread condemnation and anguish among the people. Many voiced their opinions and views over it. Some even took the courage of taking an action in some or other form. And one such person is popular music composer Vishal Dadlani of the VishalShekhar duo who composed the music for OSO, BACHANA AE HASEENO, DOSTANA, etc.
Apparently composer Vishal has taken up a cause that he believes will protect the lives of the security forces during antiterrorism operations. He has taken a stand against the live telecast by news television channels. According to him media exposed the plans of the military and National Security Guard as they tried to overwhelm the terrorists and rescue hostages, which is not right when certain crucial operation is being carried out. It is totally unfair and very dangerous for national security. Such coverage should be classified but the television channels were broadcasting it. They were trying to outdo each other in getting closer to the action and giving more details. He also protested against one more point whether morally and legally is it correct that the TV channels should have broadcasted the live phone call, purportedly from one of the terrorists.
He further added that he is not against any particular channel but media should have certain code of conduct and they should behave in a certain manner during any such crisis. And so to pass his message across Vishal has filed an online petition against the coverage. Vishal hopes that the courts will take cognizance of the petition and make it a PIL (Public Interest Litigation) so that the things can move faster.
