New Delhi: YouTube has restored the channel Media Star World, which was abruptly terminated on November 27 (Monday), following an appeal by the Delhi Union of Journalists.
According to the channel head, veteran journalist M.A. Kazmi, YouTube didn’t send any warning message saying that it intended to terminate the channel.
On November 28, the Delhi Union of Journalists released a statement, expressing shock at the sudden termination of the channel.
“This small but popular news and views channel had 820 thousand subscribers and at least 4.9 thousand videos to its credit. This Delhi-based channel offered world news and views on current affairs, with a particular focus on West Asia affairs,” the DUJ press release said.
“Given the timing of this termination, it is a political move, possibly undertaken under pressure from various quarters,” it added.
