India media who never miss a chance to tarnish the image of India on the global platform has crossed limits once again when a Radio Fm Channel Radio Mirchi Launched #MatAaoIndia or #PleaseDon’tCometoIndia Campaign after the attack on the Swiss couple while their visit to Fatehpur Sikri In Uttar Pradesh.
A group of youngsters in Fatehpur Sikri harassed and chased a Swiss couple and left them severely injured with a broken skull, a fractured arm, and a hearing impairment. The incident took place on Sunday afternoon when Quentin Jeremy (24) and his girlfriend Marie (24) were roaming at the Fatehpur Sikri complex and a group of youngsters first approached the couple and asked for selfies with Marie. They then started following the couple and forcibly clicked pictures.
Everyone was abuzz with the outrage on the Swiss couple attack in Agra. Even External Affairs Minister, Sushma Swaraj took to Twitter to assure Indians as well as tourists that the government is working for maintenance of law, order, and safety for everyone.
Soon After this Radio Mirchi Fm Launched A hateful & India Shaming Campaign against The attack o swiss couple. Akash Banerjee, Vice President of popular radio channel Radio Mirchi hared another video, this time addressing foreign tourists visiting India, urging them to not visit us. At first, he reached out to Swiss Broadcasting Company and passive-aggressively informed them about the attack that took place yesterday. After about 10-12 hours of posting it, he put another tweet in the same thread, addressing same organization saying how India is not safe for tourists and they should not come.

Radio Mirchi’s Mat Aao India campaign is frankly shameful. Hit the sick goons hard, but why direct the hatred towards your own nation?
