'Soul of democracy under relentless attack': Ravish
New Delhi: Senior journalist Ravish Kumar was on Friday awarded with the Ramon Magsaysay Award in Manila, for "harnessing journalism to give voice to the voiceless."
Ravish, who is a Managing Editor and news anchor with NDTV, in his speech during the ceremony, highlighted that the "soul of democracy is under relentless attack every day".
"We are living in testing times, as journalists and as common citizens," Ravish told the gathering.
Ravish who has been vocal about the growing degradation of journalistic norms and ethics said, "News channel debates take place within a vocabulary of exclusionary nationalism wherein they seek to replace the collective history and memory of the nation with that of the ruling party's in their viewers' minds."
