Christians protest against Saakshi newspaper
Christians across the State strongly protested the publication of an objectionable picture of Jesus in Sakshi, a Telugu daily, edited and published by Y. S. Jaganmohan Reddy, son of Dr Y. s. Rajasekhar Reddy, Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh.
The picture published in the religion column of the features section of the daily showed Jesus Christ in a manner that was reprehensible and hurt the sentiments of the community, Christian organisations alleged.
Jaganmohan Reddy, Chairman of Jagati Publishers, which publishes the daily, tendered an unconditional apology for hurting the sentiments of Christians. He sought forgiveness of the Christian community for inadvertently publishing the picture and clarified that the photograph was downloaded from the Internet by a sub-editor, who failed to notice its quality.
The paper Saakshi on Monday carried an apology on the front page.
