In a letter on Sunday, Zee news producer Vishwa Deepak resigned from his position, citing the biased JNU coverage as the reason for his decision.
According to Deepak, the footage of the JNU protests broadcasted by Zee News had slogans of “Pakistan Zindabad” chanted repeatedly, but that no such slogans had been shouted by the students.
“We heard inaudible slogans from the grainy video. Editors at Zee News felt this sounded like ‘Pakistan Zindabad’ and that’s the caption we went with.”
“The video which had no “Pakistan Zindabad” slogans in it, we played repeatedly to spread madness. How did we establish that Kanhaiya and his associates were chanting slogans when all we heard were voices coming from the darkness. Our biases made us hear Bhartiya Court Zindabad as Pakistan Zindabad.”
