Social media users have come out in support of a minor girl, whom they named “Choti Damini”, after the journalist aired an MMS featuring her to defame Asaram Bapu, a self-styled religious guru who has been sentenced to life in prison for raping a 16-year-old.
Chaurasia’s act courted a huge controversy with 58.3k followers using the hashtag #IndiaAgainstDeepakChaurasia on Twitter.
It seems that salable media and paid journalism is superior to the police nd legal system. This is why Deepak Chaurasia, who has aired a doctored MMS of a minor girl on NATIONAL TV, is yet to be arrested, even proved guilty. #IndiaAgainstDeepakChaurasia pic.twitter.com/0HWAE6Lu0M— @NareshSaur (@NareshSaur) November 24, 2019
Deepak Chaurasia has created an asset of 500 crores rupees through Anti-Hindu Forces by unrestraining propaganda against Sant Asaram Bapuji, otherwise an ordinary journalist who earns 5000/mnth wud never be so rich. It shd be thoroughly investigated. #IndiaAgainstDeepakChaurasia— Om Ananad (@OAnanad) November 24, 2019
