Only ‘The Telegraph’ has the courage to buck the law (and political correctness) to publish the chilling Reuters photo of ‘Rambhakt Gopal’, the “teenager” who shot at Jamia Millia students


Delhi Police initially put the age of “Rambhakt Gopal” at 19 before a marks sheet magically produced by a “news agency” showed the gunman who shot at Jamia students as being 17 years old began doing the rounds.

That has been sufficient for all but one prominent newspaper to mask the identity of the self-proclaimed “Ram Bhakt” who chose Mahatma Gandhi‘s martyrdom day to turn himself into a twisted legend.

In the process, an outstanding photograph by Reuters’ Pulitzer Prize winning chief photographer Danish Siddiqui has been ruined.
