    NDTV.com: Journalist throws shoe at Chidambaram

    Journalist throws shoe at Chidambaram
    NDTV Correspondent
    Tuesday, April 07, 2009, (New Delhi)

    A shoe was thrown at Union Home Minister P Chidambaram during a press conference that missed him.

    The shoe was thrown by a journalist from Dainak Jagran, Jarnail Singh, who was asking a question on the 1984 Sikh riots.

    The man was immediately taken off the conference room and has been detained.

    A composed Chidambaram said, "I am not distracted, let one man's action not mar the press conference."

    Chidambaram was addressing the media on Monday's Guwahati blasts and security arrangements in the country.

    While speaking to NDTV, Jarnail Singh said, "It's my protest against the clean chit to Tytler."

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
