RS member protests TV programme on creation of Khalistan
New Delhi, Mar 13 (UNI) Rajya Sabha member Tarlochan Singh today registered a strong protest in the Upper House over the telecast of a report by a private channel which, he said, tried to show that within a year, the country would be divided and Sikhs would manage to create a separate Khalistan.
''The telecast of such a programme has damaged the image of Sikhs, and the people who were shown declaring that soon there will be partition of the country had no base among the Sikh masses,'' said Mr Singh raising the issue during the Zero Hour.
He said telecast of such a programme should not have been allowed, and state intelligence agencies should have known that such a programme was to be aired.
It should come to light as to which agency was invloved in the making of such a report, he said, adding that there should be some code of conduct regulating telecast of such programmes.
