The main stream media Newspaper “Naya Patrika”; responsible for breaking out the news by publishing the scandal gossip along with some images was criticized for crossing the line of ethics of journalism. Namrata Shrestha Scandal on BBC Nepali Service of BBC, after two weeks of the scandal included the serious gossip in their episode of “Nepal Samdarva”  in which Rabindra Mishra questioned on the ethics of Nepali journalist to bring out the news to general public. The program included discussion with editor of Nayapatrika Dainik, Krishna Jwala Devkota, and Journalism Professor, P. Kharel.

    One main thing is Nepali journalist don’t have any good news to write that is why they used to bring personal issue in Public…Nepali people are afraid of Nepali Media to do what they want….why they do not talk abt that man with namratha shrestha….so discriminate….Nepali Journalist with very poor mind…shit…Media always in the for the motion of Human Rights…

    The media do not adhere to any standards. Their primary aim is to sell copies and unfortunately for Namrata, sex sells.

    They do not care who’s daughter’s life they’re destroying or who’s life they are invading. At the end of the day, it’s all about money.

    Journalism is in a sad state of affairs, and it will continue to do so when the quantity sold, not the quality printed is the primary goal.

    I applaud the courage of Namrata how see stood up after the video was released. It definitely takes a lot for Nepali women to defend herself.
    But, i enjoyed the video, and i am sure every other guy out there liked it, again its human nature that I can’t hide.

    Whatever it is I just like Namrata Shrestha. She is an actress who can bring our Nepali cinema into a new path. Her movie Sano sansar was an exceptional one. Whatever she does in her private life behind a closed door is her own business why do we have to headache. The video leakout was an unintentional one. She didnt planned to be famous by leaking the video and yes she wasnt the one to leakout the video. They may have recorded the video for more fun and if some low life journalist wants to make some living from that then let it be. If you are a true human and posses the humanity then you will self understand it. She is a human too and we know how a human nature and characters are like. If you say that your mouth doesnt waters when you cut a lemon then something is dysfunctional in you. Go get a doc check up very soon.

    I think Nepali society is the biggest villain in this case. The newspaper published the article because it was news worthy. If the first publisher hadn’t published it, it would have been published by someone else or it could have appeared in a blog in internet. It is us Nepali society who did not thought it necessary to weight the news and determine how much importance should we give to this news. In the age of internet, every day we come across thousand of news, it is up to us to determine which one should we forget, and the one we should remember forever.
