Acts as the Mouthpiece of China
Openly Plagiarizes from other publications, gets caught by PGurus
Writes Opinion pieces without understanding the crux of the problem
On the day that Shekhar Gupta wrote this edit, another Christian girl in Pakistan was abducted, forcefully converted to Islam and then forced to marry her abductor. What the minorities in Islamic nations suffer is nothing short of a humanitarian crisis! That the crisis was born out of the ill-conceived partition on the basis of religion is secondary.
Changes headline of articles to create rift between communities
Taslima Nasreen had written an article which aimed to attack Modi government and the Hindutva organisations. It seems Nasreen had used a mild headline but Shekhar Gupta who published this article in his website ” The Print” changed the headline comparing Hindus to ISIS terror organisations to make it controversial.
Announces coup by Indian Army. Why?
- In 2010, Shekhar closed his company Greenpine Agro after he was accused by former Army head V.K Singh of tax evasion, fraud and being involved in the Commonwealth Games scam. Gupta had not filed tax for many years and he did the same on a single day 18 Jan,2010. He reportedly opted for Early Exit Scheme and closed the firm on 30 August 2010.
- In May 2012, he sued the former editor(now deceased) of Outlook, Vinod Mehta. No stranger to sensational comments, according to Mehta in an interview to ‘Open’ Magazine, Shekhar Gupta had deliberately written an article earlier in 2012 to malign the reputation of V.K Singh. Gupta reportedly sued both Open Magazine and Mehta.
