Honourable Minister for Information and PR, Rajasthan Mr. Ashok Bairwa was the Guest of Honour at the National Media Conference.
The minister congratulated Brahma Kumaris Media Wing for addressing an important issue like 'Role of Media and Spirituality.' He said that Indian philosophy gave importance to spirituality. Westerners and foreigners alike turned to India for spiritual experiences.

He urged the media professionals to incorporate messages, that have social relevance and will increase social benefit. According to him it is the primary responsibility of the media to create awareness. He believes the media can bring about a change in the society, and hopes that media will influence people positively, and help in creating the new world the Brahma Kumaris wish to create.


I'm not on Twitter and don't know how to pose my questions. Considering this is a live blog, can someone get my question across?
- Although the media is a business and money is important, shouldn't media organisations exercise some amount of bias in who advertises with them, especially if the organisation has, on a previous occasion been blackmarked by the media? An ex.- dubious education institutes that have been involved in reported scandals advertising with major media.

Question will be posted to dignitaries and we'll get back to you.
