Broad but biased

In India Hindus - despite being the most accommodating of all people - face the bias of negative coverage from bbc.

Unfortunately rapes and murders are not unusual in today’s world.
Muslims are portrayed as a victim of “right wing Hindu mobs” for the most minor crimes and given lavish coverage. When the victim is a Hindu either there is no coverage or it is made to look like a general crime or given non religious reasons deliberately. Ignoring the hard line conversion activities by other religions in India, Hindus are regularly portrayed as intolerant.

Change your tone BBC and reduce bias.

I pity the foolishness of my fellow Indians...

I see pompous speeches on British colonialism down in the comments which of course is ruthless for all the colonies of British, but taking it out on a British news channel which is reporting what’s really happening in Kashmir unbiasedly without any government influences where indian media is failing to the core and degrading the values of fourth estate, is “foolishness”, stop fighting for the freedom which we already own... think about the freedom of Kashmir people suffering with the halt of social communication in 21st century for almost 7 weeks, while we have the privilege of listening podcasts and to complain about British colonialism, our fellow brothers and sisters of Kashmir can’t even know the welfare of their families, if you still don’t have any idea on intensity of the problem, try not touching your phone for 3 days, then you can surely complain about British biased BBC.
I sincerely appreciate BBC for bringing the real news out for us.
