Kerala is known for its politically aware population that holds their leaders accountable. So it shouldn’t come as a surprise when you hear a Malayali news anchor raise all the right questions. A video of Hashmi Taj Ibrahim of Mathrubhumi News is taking the internet by storm.
Hashmi Taj Ibrahim starts by talking about statistics from hospitals in the Nation Capital Region that have caused sleepless nights for Arvind Kejriwal, going on to say that only a select group of leaders will be able to sleep knowing these stats.
He questions the Central Government scarcity of Oxygen and asks if the Centre is ready to take responsibility for the loss of life. He then goes on to ask why Serum Institute, specifically Adar Poonawalla, is selling the vaccine to Indian hospitals at ₹600 (approximately $8) when they are selling the same vaccine to the US at $4 and the UK at $3.
All questions that many of us have in our minds and that’s probably why the video is going viral at the moment. Taj Ibrahim has voiced out many of the questions that have plagued our minds these past few days.
The internet has applauded his courage and seems to be urging other journalists to follow suit. Here is how a few users on Reddit have reacted to Hashmi Taj Ibrahim’s video.
