Modi's legal notice to Outlook magazine

Ahmedabad: Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi sent a legal notice to Delhi-based weekly magazine Outlook for publishing a news report in its June 3 issue alleging that Modi gave instruction to senior officers to remain inactive during "reprisal attack by mobs to avenge the Godhra train carnage on February 27 last". 

The notice was issued to the editor, publisher and printer of the news magazine by Modi's lawyer Sumit Shah recently, a press release said here on June 8.

The notice contended that the news report under the headline "A plot from devils layer", had defamed the Chief Minister and was "out of fact, with malicious intention and politically motivated". The notice asked the publisher to publish a clarification and tender apology for the news report and withdraw the report without any condition. 

Failing this, legal action would be taken under the law against all those responsible for the report, the notice added.

In another development, same day (June 8) Union HRD Minister Murli Manohar Joshi and Samata Party leader Jaya Jaitly attacked media. They raised questions on the ethics of reporting and accountability of mediapersons. While Joshi lashed out at the media over alleged "misreporting" over the review of education curriculum and Gujarat communal violence, Jaitly used the Tehelka episode to direct her ire against the media. 

"Nobody is objecting to the rights of the media. But there should be accountability of the media," said Joshi addressing the seminar 'Ayeena 2002 on Gujarat' organised by the VHP-backed Images India Foundation. 

Defending the review of the education curriculum as having been done "after thorough discussions and consulations", the Minister regretted that the "media projected it in a damaging manner without any regard for facts." "We repeatedly asked whether there was anything objectionable in context of the interest of the nation or democracy in the revised syllabus. Nothing was pointed out but editorials were written misrepresenting facts," Joshi said. He also objected to the raising of hue and cry over the word 'saffron.
