Although India was amongst the first countries to help Nepal after the massive earthquake, its media has come under severe criticism for its coverage.
Recently Nepalis took to social media to criticise Indian media’s sensationalist reporting of the aftermath. The hashtag #GoHomeIndianMedia has been trending for the last few days.
Posts on Twitter and Facebook claimed some reporters were falsifying reports and sensationalising matters to make the government of Prime Minister Narendra Modi look better, rather than focusing on the disaster.
While Modi, praised the country's media for "bravely covering the disaster from the ground," former Union Minister, Shashi Tharoor tweeted, "Our media continues to embarrass and dismay India."
