Senior journalist Ravish Kumar has made quite a reputation for himself when it comes to addressing social and political issues. Earlier, when the Union information and broadcast ministry had declared that Hindi news channel NDTV India will be taken off-air on November 9, because their Pathankot attack coverage allegedly compromised national security, Kumar protested by calling two mime artists to demonstrate to the viewers what happens when the authority is asked questions. Now, it is his speech on Sadbhavna Parv, at Kailash Gurukul in Gujarat’s Mahuva town, that is going viral.

In his speech, Kumar criticises the rampant propagation of fake news, the ‘game of isolation’ that different political parties play, etc. He said he had come to attend the event for three reasons — First, after hearing the name of the host city (Gujarat), second; Sadbhavna which is the name of the event, third because this is where Mahatma Gandhi once lived. In the video, Kumar – in his signature lyrical fashion – asks why does the government and the PM fear him.
