Salim Khan: Truth, the first casualty of the media

I am borrowing the title from Salim Khan’s introduction to Modi, Muslims and Media.
It succinctly explains why mind stays exercised about state of media in our country. It also explains why I decided to read this book.
What better case study can there be in my efforts to understand media and what drives them?
The reasons Kishwar gives for researching  the subject are very relevant, even in the post election environment.
1. What’s unique about Gujarat riots and Modi that certain political groups have made it their do or die mission to finish him politically?
2. What was Modi’s personal role during the riots?
3. How come hundreds of Muslims have won Panchayat, Zilla Parishad and municipal elections on BJP tickets?
4. How valid is Modi’s claim that Gujarat development model is inclusive?
and many more…
I am looking forward to reading further. Will surely share with you my takeaways. Keep checking this space.
