Lok Sabha member from Bihar, Maulana Asrar-ul-Haque Qasmi has said that the media believes in sensationalising events but does not give space to really constructive matters.

Maulana told PTI that he was pained at this attitude of media, as it did not serve any purpose at all. He said that there were several instances, which proved that the media was more interested in sensation than in any thing constructive.

The MP said that even Parliament coverage by media reflected this as uproarious scenes got wide coverage while even a good speech goes without coverage.

Maulana said that there were two glaring instances, which showed that the media had almost failed in its role to portray things properly.

He said that after a plane crash had taken place near Church Dadri village in Haryana, residents had taken care of the survivors even though they did not belong to their religion.

Similarly in a Hindu village, Muslims had gone out of their way to save those who were engulfed in a fire, Maulana said and added, "But it is sad that none of these things ever got reported in the media," he said.
