Journalist Arrested For Forgery to Defame PM Modi Government

Delhi Police on Saturday (May 14) arrested journalist Pushp Sharma who wrote a report in March claiming that the AYUSH Ministry said in an RTI reply that it denied jobs to Muslims. Sharma was arrested for allegedly “fabricating” the RTI reply in which the Ayush Ministry is supposed to have said that it does not recruit Muslims for jobs. The journalist has stood his ground and said that the RTI reply is indeed from the Ministry. The report was published in the Milli Gazette issue of March 16-31 issue. Sharma was interrogated by the Kotla Mubarakpur police for a few days after the report was published. After that, the RTI replies were sent for forensic analysis. He was then let off on condition that he would not leave the country or Delhi without the police’s permission. The police also quizzed the editor of the magazine, Dr Zafarul-Islam Khan, on April 11 as a witness.
