Media Greed or Fear of getting branded as Islamophobic behind these blackouts? 21/01/2012 07:23:46 HK
Reports about Kerala Spices board raid and confiscation of Chilli powder with ‘Unreasonably’ high levels of additive Sudan4 from Eastern Curry powder consignments, have been completely blacked out by Kerala Media.
Even after exposures via social network medias like Facebook and youtube – No Mainstream media in Kerala came forward to expose this fraud upon Humanlife.
Even Middle East based medias have carried the report but Kerala medias who jump up into sensationalize any issue is keeping silence, as it may affect their revenues coming from Eastern Curry powder.
According to above reports - Following the raids on November 9, 2011, the samples seized by Spices Board officials were sent for further chemical examination, which indicated that each kilogramme of Eastern chilly powder contained 14 microgrammes of Sudan 4.
Sudan dyes are red dyes used for colouring oils, waxes, petrol and shoe and floor polishes. Some reports suggest that it can cause cancer and it is banned for use in food products in some countries.
A report by the Spices Board of India confirms that a consignment of Eastern brand chilli powder was found with an overdose of Sudan 4.
Whom are these Media Manipulators trying to fool and How long can they fool Kerala soceity by their selective reportings?

So called Victimisation of Muslims by Kerala Government is a urgent issue which warrants 24 x 7 coverage but the a Jihadi cow slaughter inside Temple premises are not even a news worth reporting for our Media barons!
Whether it is Eastern or Western curry powder – Did any one bothered to find out what action authorities have taken against this malpractice? Or are the Media pundits afraid of the fact that if they publish a report against Eastern group – will they also be branded as agents of Mossad and CIA and conspiring with RSS to tarnish a Minority owned curry powder ?
