18 Jan. Internet is rife with rumouors that Ms Barkha Dutt, television news program icon to many a tv-buff, is married! That too to a Muslim. That too to a Kashmiri! (triple ‘haw’ji’). Well, for twitter, today, it’s only Barkha, Barkha, and Barkha!!!
I guess, the insinuations are only too obvious to hide the netizens’ prejudices and bias’ against a minority community and to a specific geographical region! What if Barkha marries!
And here is Barkha Dutt vehemently refuting it. In her bid to refute, she tries to evince her love Kashmiri Muslims! Fair enough! Barkha is an inclusivist! But her desperation at the insinuations is quite disturbing!
No doubt, Barkha has done a lot in television journalism, has won many an international and national award for television news and ‘talk-shows’ and even trivialising journalism. About her, you can read something more:
Note from blog Admin:
I don’t agree with / support the attacks on the private life of Ms Barkha Dutt. She has right for her privacy, just as anybody has. I get a few comments on this blog (some anonymous, which are deleted immediately, since the ‘commentator’ has no guts to identify him/herself!) either supporting or attacking these posts. These posts only reflect the activity in the media sphere and not my attitudes and values. I believe that every person has the right to marry/ love the person of one’s choice – irrespective of one’s caste, creed, geography, and affiliation.
