RSS slams 'negative journalism practice brought to India by West', gives advice to reporters

Narendra Kumar, who is RSS' Akhil Bharatiya Sah Prachar Pramukh, or a senior leader in the publicity wing, said that it is the responsibility of reporters to reduce "negativity" in news.

A senior functionary of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh, or RSS, criticised "negative journalism" and said that it originated in the West.

Narendra Kumar, who is RSS' Akhil Bharatiya Sah Prachar Pramukh, or a senior leader in the publicity wing, said that it is the responsibility of reporters to reduce "negativity" in news.

He was speaking at an event organised by Vishwa Sanvad Kendra in Maharashtra's Nagpur on May 23. The RSS leader said that journalism began in India with positive views.

He added, "The theory of negative journalism has come from the West. Their thoughts mostly move towards negative things...they are directed towards negativity only as they have never done good works. When they (the West) moved around the world with their thoughts and thinking, they destroyed the culture of others, finished their beliefs and signs of faith."
