Journalists and their shoes

Journalists and their shoes

A journalist in India threw his shoe at the country’s Home Minister.


April 7, 2009 1:19 by

It seems like journalists and shoes have formed a special bond. Following the footsteps of the Iraqi journalist, Muntadhar al-Zaidi, who hurled his shoes at former US President George Bush in December 2008, an Indian journalist, Jarnail Singh, has now used the same stunt to express his anger at Indian Home Minister Chidambaram.

Singh was irate with the minister’s reply to a question on the 1984 riots in India, in which hundreds of Sikhs were killed, and then threw his shoe at the minister.

But it seems like politicians have been trained to dodge flying shoes from journalists at press conferences; like Bush, Chidambaram managed to avoid the shoe, smiled, and then asked security guards to take the reporter out of the room.
