Vandals hits Radio Jagriti

Media reports from Trinidad say Radio Jaagriti has been vandalized and the station is off the air.

And official told JYOTI "Radio Jaagriti 102.7 FM last night was vandalized and the station was destroyed."

He added, "Managing Director Sat Maharaj stated he felt the station's pro-govt position made it a target. Over the past few weeks Maharaj indicated the days he had his weekly talk shows the station's antenna were being tampered with by persons unknown. Police are investigating."

The radio station is owned and operated by the Sanatan Dharma Maha Sabha, the main Hindu group in Trinidad and Tobago. 

The Maha Sabha fought a lengthy battle with the government to get the license to operate Radio Jagriti. It eventually won at the Privy Council, which ruled that the state's action in denying the license was discriminatory.

Anand Ramlogan, who was then in private practice, represented the Maha Sabha in the landmark discrimination case.
