The Tribune 22nd November 2017
Comments by Simranjit Singh Mann:
Shiromani Akali Dal (Amritsar) states that The Tribune gives itself a pat by praising Vaishno Devi pilgrimage as Governor NN Vohra of Jammu and Kashmir is the Chairman of the Vaishno Devi trust and also the Chairman of The Tribune trust. We congratulate The Tribune but at the same time we ask it to clarify its stand on Governor Vohra being the Chairman of a trust and the Amarnath Yatra in a state whose constitution is said to be secular. We do not think that The Tribune is fair as far as its secular credentials are concerned as it consistently refers to Sikh’s as terrorists, radicals, extremists and hardliners . It should be read with a pinch of salt as it is a right wing Hindu Nationalist newspaper.
