As the country battles COVID-19 and the migrants in large numbers continue to leave for their homes, a certain section of mainstream media focused on covering and trending the news of ancient idols being found near Ram Janambhoomi site in Ayodhya. 

“#RamMandirExisted” was the trend observed all over social media as soon as the news reports narrated that ancient idols have been excavated during the land levelling work at Ram Janambhoomi in Ayodhya. 

Reacting to the news of archaeological findings in Ayodhya, Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut said that the focus should be in the fight against COVID-19 outbreak which has gripped the country.

“Our focus is to fight the coronavirus. There are many people who will look into the remains which were found during excavation. Under current circumstances, issues like Ram Mandir, India-Pakistan should be kept aside. The only focus should be on the fighting coronavirus which has gripped the country,” Sanjay Raut told Times Now. 

Coronavirus has become a worldwide concern. The priority of every progressive government should be to fight COVID-19 and to keep its citizens safe while the role of its media should be to hold the administration accountable.

Meanwhile, the popular news portal ran a story and announced that Shiv Sena has “betrayed” the Ram Mandir cause and the MVA government wants “Ram Mandir on hold”. Reacting to Raut’s remarks, they also accused Shiv Sena of first changing the alliance (with BJP) and now the ideology.

However, if one hears Raut’s remarks without the propaganda lens, he has clearly mentioned that their focus is on fighting the COVID-19 outbreak. He also said, and rightly so, that issues like Ram Mandir and India-Pakistan should be kept aside and the only focus should be on combating the 'coronavirus' crisis. 

Thousands of stranded migrant workers are still walking to their homes and are dying in the process. On the other hand, those who were fortunate enough to travel on special ‘Shramik’ trains had to pay for their railway fare. 

Despite the fact that most of the migrants had no money and proper food since the lockdown was imposed on March 25, the stranded migrants have been forced to pay for their railway fare. However, the mainstream media has no Prime Time show or debate to highlight the suffering of millions of workers and labourers in India.
