Al Jazeera Media Network condemns in the strongest terms the vicious attempts to defame the Network as propagating anti-Indian and anti-Hindu sentiments.
Tweets are being circulated from a twitter handle @dilawarshaikh_. This is a spurious account and has no relation or affiliation to Al Jazeera. The Network doesn’t have any journalist by the name of Dilawar Shaikh.
This is a clear attempt to malign the Network and to bring it into disrepute.
As an international news organisation, Al Jazeera and its journalists are committed to adhereing to the highest standards of professionalism, objectivity and ethical journalism. The Network deplores and condemns any attempts to incite violence, and calls on everyone to ignore such fake news and to refrain from propagating false content.
Al Jazeera stands by the quality, accuracy and independence of its journalism.
