Gateway to Sikhism

Misra Commission Report


The inquiry was a sensitive one. Wrong reports started featuring in the Press relating to the proceedings before the Commission. When evidence came to be taken, tainted news appeared with greater frequency. In periodicals writings appeared based upon wrong premises. Even though the CJC was appearing before the Commission through Advocates, some of the persons connected with the said Committee started giving wrong versions of events to the Press. The Commission was, therefore obliged to direct that the inquiry would be in camera and made an order requiring the Press not to publish news and particulars about the proceedings before the Commission. The Commission places on record that the Press has mostly behaved responsibly and was co-operative after the direction was given. The Illustrated Weekly published from Bombay, however, exhibited scanty regard to the direction and in its issue dated May 25- 31, 1986, published a write-up said to be by Harji Malik. The Commission has noticed that the write-up is contrary to facts and is a total misrepresentation of the situation.
