Indigenious Editorial Policy
Over the course of one and half century, the journalism has been driven to promote secular values in the third world countries. The Western media being a major instrument of secular ideology, has been largely de-contextualizing the events and happenings around world in its reports and analysis. The motive has been to serve covet religious and overt economic, political and geo-strategic interests of the West under the garb of helping poor countries to adopt the model of liberal democracy. The national medias in third world countries have been conveniently engaged in copycat approach to de-contextualize major events and incidents in their own countries. They wittily or unwittingly prefer to use terminologies of Western media to report and analyze events, something which virtually has been de-legitimizing indigenous resistance against hegemonic agenda of West and their allies For instance, largely indigenous resistance against the West backed apartheid State of Israel, has been portrayed as terrorism and so has been the case in Indian occupied Jammu and Kashmir and many other parts of the world particularly in Muslim world. The core moral, social, family, values and religious values of the people of the third world countries have been under attack in a subtle manner to promote entities and individuals intellectually indoctrinated to secularism and liberalism. On the other hand, the authoritarian media in Middle East and many other countries particularly in China, has been engaged in a systematic cover-up to force over one million Muslims to renounce their religion and breach all other their fundamental rights, something the Western media enthusiastically reports not out of love of press freedom but more to serve the political and geo-strategic interests of the countries, they represent in the West. In the context of this background, Muslim Affairs would undertake humble efforts to report, analyze and monitor of what Western and Authoritarian medias opt to de-contextualize and miss out because of their political interests and inherited biases across the region.
