Censoring history

[Referring to the evolution of journalism in India, the chief minister referred to the contribution of Mahatma Gandhi, GK Gokhale, Pt Jawaharlal Nehru and Maulana Abul Kalam Azad, saying that they were great mass communicators. He said Gandhiji edited various journals including ‘Indian Opinion’, ‘Young India’ and ‘Harijan’ from 1902 to 1948, while Gokhale put his duty as journalist above his family and Maulana Azad became the editor of Al-Hilal when he was just 13 years of age.]
As a devoted Congressman, Ghulam Nabi Azad dutifully forgets to mention Lal-Bal-Pal, and of course, Sri Aurobindo. [TNM] 11:24 AM
