Aap Ka Haq --Platform for India's Unheard voices

'Aap Ka Haq', the path-breaking show which ace showman Shekhar Suman anchors on JANMAT, India's first views channel, has kept to its promise of giving a valid platform to the unheard voices of the nation.

Positioned as a show that proactively engages in the problems of common people, 'Aap ka Haq' walks that extra mile with the victims, the persecuted, the forgotten and downtrodden and actively seeks a resolution of their problems with the help of government authorities, NGOs and the civil services.

On the episode to be telecast at 10.30 p.m. tomorrow, Saturday, 25th March, for the first time in the history of electronic media, the forgotten and deprived weaver raised his voice in a studio where big wigs like Jaya Jaitley (JDU), Avni Rai (RSP), Yogesh Shukla (Rashtriya Karigar Panchayat), Furkan Ansari (M.P, Congress) were perforce silenced by the tragic scale of neglect of this vital workforce of the country.

Weavers in India have historically been famous for their talent and brilliance of work. Today, they are a marginalized lot where multinationals edge them out while selling man-made textiles. Across the country, indigenous weavers have lost their means of livelihood and live in penury. The government too is not bothered with the abject state of weavers, once India's shining example of small scale industry success.

A heated debate ensued in the JANMAT studio - but a window for a solution was opened when Avni Rai said that he will try to persuade the government to change government policies for the betterment of the weavers and this small scale industry. The discussion veered towards the opposition of the Left towards privatization of this industry. Yogesh Shukla contradicted this charge and said that the Left never harmed the interests of the needy who are searching for developmental help. Jaya Jaitley commented on the increasing use of polyester, even by the poor weavers, as a case of governmental neglect. The weavers demanded to know why their demands were ignored by the government as well as the media.

Aap Ka Haq has uncovered several issues that can shame the government and opposition political parties into taking positive action. Earlier, "Aap Ka Haq" has taken up issues like the Sikh Carnage of 1984, Uphaar cinema tragedy, the marginalization of Kashmiri Pandits, Police lock-up deaths & encounters, the condition of Sex Workers and Mumbai Bargirls, Right to Information, the lives of Eunuchs and more. Besides creating awareness, "Aap Ka Haq" tries to give a voice to those people who are striving for their rights.

Catch "Aap Ka Haq" on Saturday at 10.30 p.m. only on JANMAT.
