Indian Express whips the Indian Army

Has the Indian Army become the latest whipping boy for the media?

It would appear so!

This incredibly blasphemous headline appeared in the Pune Newsline supplement (dated 11 Feb 2010) of the Indian Express:

"Army officers held for clearing substandard equipment"

Read the story here...

The fact is that the corrupted officers were DGQA officials who are NOT men in uniform, but civilians who do not undergo a day's worth of the ragda the uniformed men are put through.

It is sad that a newspaper of such high credentials will stoop to such levels to make a headline!

As a journalist it saddens me to accept that this is reprehensible and totally condemnable piece of journalism.
