Which T.N. Babu is Times Now talking about?

I don’t think “Babu” is any longer used in a respectful way.

It is quite an offensive and derisive usage, particularly so in this context where it refers to former Tamil Nadu Chief Secretary Rammohan Rao, whose house and that of his relatives were recently raided without a warrant.

Journalism in India has become a shameless profession where Editors openly take sides and pander to the establishment.

Rammohan Rao was believed to be close to late chief Minister Jayalalitha. Whether or not he was involved in corrupt practices he has not been held guilty yet.

Until then, newspapers and channels have no business insulting people.

The governments, both at the Centre and the State, have to act within the confines of the law and the Constitution in bringing people to task. Resorting to actions that are suspect is not something that can be condoned.
