During Sabarimala Protests, Woman Journalist Got Allegedly Roughed Up. But She Did Not Shy Away From Duty

At times it happens that we got to choose between our duty and our reaction to a particular situation. Something like that happened with Shajila Ali Fathima, a cameraperson who works for Kairali TV. She was covering the statewide protests against the entry of two women in Sabarimala temple. The entry of women aged between 10 to 50 years is not allowed in the temple but last year the Supreme Court decided against the rule. However, the priests do not let it happen and even the local population is not in favor of the decision. It led to protests all over the state.

Fathima was covering a protest in Kerala over the entry of two women in Sabarimala temple but she was allegedly misbehaved by some political workers in the state capital. While performing her duty, she was clearly seen in tears, which won several hearts after it went online.

Fathima said:

“I was shocked when I got that unexpected kick on my back. It was the worst experience in my professional career.”

 

She further added:

I didn’t know where that kick came from. It caught me unawares and hurt my back. As I was writhing in pain, the attackers tried to snatch the camera, but I used all my strength to keep hold of it. I injured by neck in the melee.”

The news of her courage went on to the social media and became viral.

 

 

However, Shajila later told Dool News that a BJP leader had later called to apologise to her.

After the news created buzz on social media, some praised her and some said that it is staged propaganda.

Shajila has said to keep on covering the protests no matter what. She is not scared of any political party and that is what gives her strength. This is very inspiring how she kept covering the agitations even after being allegedly roughed up. It is not the first time that the journalists faced this kind of treatment for simply doing their job. Is it right? Is it safe for journalists? Let’s know what do you think about it.
