It is always said that man is a social animal, but many times, a question raised in our mind..... are we civilized? As is natural question, because many times our behaviour or activity is just like as animal or brutal. Presently, in our society many occurrences are happening such as....thief or criminal has been brutally bitten by crowed. In this situation, police or civil administration becomes silence. Some times, accused person die due to bitten by mob. These types of happening are taking place in our civilised society. Can a civic society justify this lynch? Can we recognition this as a “Talebani” Justice? Answer is no. Because, in a democratic country, this type of lynch is totally illegal. Our country's law gives a chance to every culprit to defense.
Many times, news comes that mob have killed a burglar. This types of happening are raising in our society. Mob are taking law in their hand. Because, mob men do not have wisdom to ascertain the magnitude of the guilt, circumstantial factors and real culprit. I want to given some example to these types of occurrence. Recently, in Bhagalpur, villager had killed two thief because they were cutting the electric wire. In Muzafferpur, crowed has badly beaten a man. Mob alleged that person had stolen a bicycle, but somebody had told that he was insane person. Other occurrence had took place in Sasaram, their mob had bound a woman with a pillar and she was bitten. According to local person, lady had stolen some ornament. In Patna, mob had brutally bitten a man on near railway station road when he had fleed after the snatching a golden chain from a lady. Same type of happening have took place in Begusari, their some person had beaten up a child because he abstracted a buffalo . These types of happening takes place not only in Bihar but also in other parts of the country. Crowd are taking law in their hands. In this critical condition, who will take initiative for preventing these types of unusual thing. The answer is only media.
Media can play the vital roll to prevent these types of occurrence. Actually, electronic media shows bitten visual to viewers for TRP. But it is a very risky for our society, because mob thinks that they are doing correct judgment. On the basic of this thinking, mob becomes homicidal. In this situation, media should have patience and telecast very carefully. In this condition, we should take bytes or reaction to social workers, police officers, prominent persons, important priest, known advocate, leaders etc. Naturally, these prominent person will criticise to the mob behavior. ETV always try to oppose this types of happening. We nighter highlight these thing nor justify to the crowed judgment. Media is very powerful medium for creating the public opinion against these types of occurrence.
