MUMBAI: Do you remember Nirbhaya? Or, like every other person, you too have forgotten the monstrous scar on the face of India? On 16th December 2012, when the heinous crime came into light, people came out on roads with candles in their hands protesting. Now, after more than 7 years, when most of us have forgotten, ZEE News did not. The channel never deviated from its stand. ZEE News was the first channel to interview the victim’s friend in 2012 and still stands by the side of Nirbhaya’s family in the quest of Justice.

So far, the world has seen the address of the Biggest Political leaders and celebrities. On 19th February 2020, for the first time, a mother addressed the nation. For the first time, any news channel gave a voice to the grief and despair of Nirbhaya’s mother. The mother came up on the channel with an appeal to the whole nation, asking people’s support and questioning the Judicial incompetence and the loop-holes. ZEE News never perceived the Nirbhaya Case as any other news story, but as a movement to give back the Indian women fearless liberty to live as they want.

ZEE News started an initiative that turned into the biggest socio-legal revolution of 2020, within a few hours. The channel asked the viewers to give a missed call to express their support towards rapid punishment for the rape case convicts and justice for Nirbhaya. The channel claims to receive more than 1 Lac missed calls every hour. And not just television, on 19th February, ZEE News was trending no.1 on Twitter with #MaaKaSandesh.

When on one side, the chaos created on Shaheen Bagh attracted more eyeballs; ZEE News, on the other side, has started a movement, for the truth that has remained unheard and unacted upon. A movement that once again brought the people of India together against a social ill and created a moral pressure on the Indian Judiciary system. The channel commits to continue the movement till the justice does not prevail.

Let us seek justice for Nirbhaya. Just give a missed call on 7834998998. You can also tweet your views and opinions with #JusticeForNirbhaya. Here’s the link to the appeal of Nirbhaya’s mother and the detailed coverage of ZEE News on the case:
