These days there seems to be a culture among Journalists to throw shoes at Public figure during Press Conferences. What do you think of this kind of ungentlemanly conduct.

A Sikh journalist threw a shoe at Home Minister Palaniappan Chidambaram during a news conference on Tuesday after getting angry with his reply to a question on 1984 riots in which hundreds of Sikhs were killed. The shoe missed Chidambaram, who leant back to avoid it. He later smiled and asked security guards to take the reporter out of the room. This was the latest incident of shoe-throwing as a mark of protest against political leaders, including former US President George W Bush and Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao. Although such an act towards a minister is not to be supported, I ask you something Maniam.... Do u think our ministers truly deserve respect and cordiality after incidents like Mumbai blats, assam blasts and many such mishaps..... They have their diplomatic answers ready during every Press meet that never serve anything for the good of the common men. Its just like a prim phrase asking for VOTES....I do agree that the Sikh journalist could have been tolerant, but whatsoever I do not blame the Journalist as well....since I feel doing the same while listening their lectures over the TV

The rage of Indian population towards the ministers in general are not in a state to be controlled....What happened today would surely happened someday in near future. The terrorist attacks and other kinds of nuisance creeping into the lives of Indians are no more to be entertained by us. The fake promises and unnecessary goodwill for the politicians are no more a part of the commons interest. We all want proper rule with proper execution of rules and discipline in the nation. If the government demands us to be prim and proper, please ask the so called HONORARY ministers to deliver their quality duties. They need votes....yess we are here to give VOTES...but no sluggish government is to be encouraged anymore. Indians shall surely respect those who respect our needs and status...............

Anju, whatever the reason be, the action of the Journalist cannot be accepted. There are so many ways of showing displeasure if he not satisfied with the answer given by the Minister. He doesn t have to resort such a drastic action of taking of his shoes and throwing at an elected representative of the people. What he did only goes to show the kind of upbringing he had. In our culture, such kind of behaviour cannot be accepted or tolerated. Further, one man cannot be held responsible for the action by a group of terrorists. If anyone is to be blamed for all the bomb blasts, it should be the government and they can be punished through the ballot box.

hmmm.. But you tell me Siddharth is throwing the shoe a solution Well if not a solution then at least a way towards solution I guess No It brought him nothing and even did no harm to the image of the minister. Rather it would have been better to throw questions to the minister, to prove their inability in words To pen down their sleaze in black and white to make the Indian intelligentsia understand how big time liars are these Ministers.. But certainly not throwing shoes if this is being continued then a day will come when we will go back to our old primitive origin... We are human beings right we have intelligence which is the biggest power so why to trust on muscle power when we have enough grey cells...

Well Siddharth you have rightly said that there will be no solution only by writing as the replies come in diplomatic way. However, do u think we can bring solution to all these issues by reacting violently like the Journlist Jarnail Singh of Dainik Jagaran? He has definitely expressed his anger in a wrong way. However, I appreciate his announcement made on Wednesday when he urged politicians not to take advantage of his dramatic shoe attack on Home Minister P Chidambaram and asked political parties to come out with a law against communal violence. We all just feel bad for India but what we do? Simply take the example of West Bengal, where Mamata Banerjee created such a hue and cry against Tata Motors and the state lost an industry. But, where were the youths feeling bad for the condition, none of them appeared to protest against this. Nobody dared to throw a show on Mamata Banerjee, who has just tried to take her political benefit out of it at the cost of losing job prospects of hundreds of youth.

Siddarth, if we do not put our trust and faith in our elected party or government, then to whom else can we go to with our problems. Since you say that no poltical party would be able to solve the peoples problems, then who else can??? Any elected government can only do whatever is within their power. We cannot expect them to solve all the problems 100 per cent.
