Sudarshan news reporter harasses Haldiram store manager over Urdu description

This is not the first time that Sudarshan News made headlines for making outrageous and baseless statements. Earlier,  Sudarshan claimed that UPSC was being ‘infiltrated’ by Muslims and that the Commission was favouring Muslim candidates over Hindu ones.

They made headlines again after a news reporter belonging to the organisation was harassing a Haldiram store manager over Urdu packaging on a Navratri Namkeen. The video of the news reporter is going viral on various social media platforms.

The namkeen in question here is Haldiram’s Falhari Mixture.  The namkeen is a sweet mixture of peanuts and potatoes with a mild taste of spice. Moreover, it is one of the most popular snacks at Haldiram’s. Additionally, it is consumed by the people who keep a fast throughout the nine-day Hindu festival of Chaitra Navratri.

In the video, the reporter can be seen shoving the microphone in the face of the store manager. She is seen asking her what Haldiram is trying to hide by writing the package description in Urdu. The main title is written in English, while the description is written in Urdu. The packaging also clearly shows the green vegetable symbol.

The store manager appeared to be frustrated as she continued to be harassed by the reporter, but she maintained her composure. The store manager stated that she would not tolerate the reporter’s behaviour.

While some Twitter users sided with the reporters most of the users did not side with the news reporter. The users continued to praise the store manager’s behaviour and grace for handling it well.
