Senior Producer Shubham Tripathi of Sudarshan News recently shared a disconcerting video, on Twitter, of a group of Non-Resident Indians (NRI) cheering slogans in support of the news channel that has been airing episodes of alleged ‘Muslim infiltration’ in central government services.

Assembled at the Times Square in New York City, a group of NRIs cheered for “Suresh bhai” assuring him that they “are with him.”

 

The video has been retweeted 488 times and received around a thousand 'likes'. People have also commented on the video in support of Sudarshan news.

 

However, the quoted tweets generally criticise the “Hindutva” act of these people.

 

The Sudarshan news channel has received a show cause notice from the Supreme Court for its ‘Bindas Bol’ show where the anchor attempts to show the prevalence of UPSC jihad. The first such isalamophobic episode has been reviewed by the Citizens for Justice and Peace. An important takeaway from the show was that the reporters had no evidence for their crude allegations.
