In my view the media has important role to give a perfect picture in front of world about an incident recent terror attack on Mumbai only media and this is an important Electronic evidence to fight criminal case in indian and international court ,as such,Media has vital role in evidence of any incident should not be banned.,but repeated telecaste of such incident frquently should be restrained.
I agree with Tribhuwan Ji, and more over it was only through the media I saw our Police with 1st world war model Rifles against those Terrorist armed with sophisticated weapons. Time to equiped our police properly.
