Class struggle and the role of mass media

Class struggle and the role of mass media

In Prison we get only censored newspapers and it it is very difficult or rather impossible to know what the mainstream media says about my imprisonment on a political crime. (Sedition)
Many mainstream media parroted the police version of my case by indulging in personal mudslinging and mischievous & false propaganda.
Please see what India’s National newspaper "The Hindu" dated 08-01-2008 stated

Bail petition dismissed

Kochi: Ernakulam District and Sessions Judge D. Pappachan, on Monday, dismissed the bail petition filed by Govindankutty who was arrested on charges of possessing seditious material in a raid conducted in the wake of the arrest of a Maoist leader from Angamali.
Govindankutty was the editor and publisher of Peoples March. Dismissing his contentions, the court said if the confession of the petitioner as borne out by the case diary files was anything to go by, he was a life convict for having murdered his wife and mother-in-law by setting them on fire. Having regard to the nature of allegations against him and his antecedents, it was clear that the release of the petitioner on bail was not in the larger interest of the country. It was pointed out that Govindankutty was on a hunger strike against his arrest. The court said that considering the grave nature of the crime alleged against him, such tactics should not pay dividends.

Malayala Manorama’s stand also similar to that of The Hindu.

My childrens’ mother is very well alive at plot No: 7, Bank colony, RK Puram, Secundrabad. Anybody can go and meet her and ask her as to why she gave false evidence leading to her husband’s conviction to life imprisonment at Hydrabad in 1985.

Some brave newspapers like Mathrubhumi, New Indian Express, Kerala Kaumudi, Mangalam, Thejas, Madhyamam, India Today, Tehelka and heard that many more newspapers reported positively and exposed the real truth and countered the mischievous and false propaganda which helped the Human Rights activists struggle for my freedom.

I thank K. Sethumadhavan of Mathubhumi, Prasanth of New Indian Express, Rupesh Paul of India Today, KA Shaji of Tehelka, Roy of Mangalam and the editorials of Kerala Kaumudi, Thejas and Mathubhumi for their true and fearless reporting.
