Vanity Fair on Mumbai Terror – There’s Twist

mumbai terrorHere’s an interesting twist.

NDTV’s Barkha Dutt got Vanity Fair to update their website, presumably because the story portrays her in poor light.

But since the first vanity fair  article was sent as an email attachment (as opposed to a link), journalists were able to compare the updated text with the original text:

Before –

barkha dutt“We are all locked in Chambers—200 of us.” That exaggerated number was quickly passed to Indian TV. “There are reports of hundreds locked in Chambers,” Barkha Dutt announced. Within moments, handlers watching in Pakistan appeared to have alerted the terrorists, and a hail of bullets was fired at Chambers.

After –

“We are all locked in Chambers—200 of us.” That exaggerated number was quickly passed to Indian TV and announced on air. Within moments, handlers watching in Pakistan appeared to have alerted the terrorists, and a hail of bullets was fired at Chambers. SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

  1. Neeraj, this (i sincerely hope) is not true!!!!

    But if at all, then P.Chidambaram needs to revisit his entire security strategy currently adopted as opposed to this alarming media infringement.

    God save our Country from the Satans within and Devils without.

    • Dear Anil & Prashanth,

      May you please have a look at this link that will clear things at this stage. It’s not just about the Mumbai episode only. Kargil, which people don’t know much about, earlier was the heaviest casualty. I have more on this.

      Thanks for the concern.

  2. Hi Neeraj,

    You cannot be serious on this one. If this is a fact. Then there is something very seriously wrong in this country.

    Government, Political parties and Mainstream English media have made a monkey out off us ordinary citizens.

    This is not damn comic book or a fiction being shown in a multiplex.

    Serious urgent action is required.
