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.

    I read people blaming this guy as being anti-national pres-S-t-it ute but I would rather ask him or any other so-called journalist to tell me why do I see disgusting images of utter poverty and filth (Google it on the Internet and see images) in India seventy years after independence while those in media enriched themselves? If they allowed the country to turn into a mound of termites under their watch, they are indeed akin to those before them who served the Raj. Modi is not the last hope, he is the only hope India has today in centuries.

      Ravish is an anti national... pletely compromised and sold out press ute. He uses his hindi fluency to beguile. Inka paap ka ghada bharne wala hai

        Ravish is just a superficial information man. His main talent is his eloquence in Hindi. ELOQUENCE cannot subs ute practicality! He needs to go back to school or college or a fine gurukul to sharpen his WISDOM.

          You have mistyped Ravish instead of Modi. And wisdom is never acquired in school or colleges. It is gained through experiences in worldly dea s.

          Ravish can only provide facts - not the intelligence to perceive facts.

              His reporting is not appreciated by many and despite this he carries on. I consider it as courageous and dedication to his journalist soul. His queries and simple and to the point. But they hurt the most to his opponents. I like his style because after spending 30-40 mins worth of your precious time you come out a bit more knowledgeable about the subject.

                  this ravish is rubbish. He is the worst 3 among all pres-st-it-tu-tes. Runs an agenda lies supports anyinationals like kanhaiya naxals stine pelters. His brother is a rapist who ran a brothel in Bihar. Never debated on that.
