The decision by publisher, Indranil Roy, comes only days after the magazine carried an expose on RSS and its alleged role in trafficking tribal girls to convert them to Hinduism.

Rajesh Ramachandaran from Economic Times will now take over as the new editor-in-chief. Ramachandaran, according to an Outlook insider, will take charge from 16 August.

The RSS had filed an FIR against the magazine for inciting communal hatred.

Prasad was then quoted by The Hoot, as saying, “Threats against journalists may be an occupational hazard but what we are seeing today is a more serious attempt to shoot the messenger. The country is fast hurtling down a fascist mode and this fiction of public narrative of demonizing journalists is dangerous for free speech.”

One Outlook employee said that the sudden change in the leadership’s role was communicated by Roy in his email to staff on Saturday.

Jantakareporter.com contacted Prasad for his response on his sudden removal, but he was unavailable for comment.

More to come

  3. And the new editor will be free to scribble a long and incisive editorial about freedom of the press and to eulogise the OUTLOOK for its ‘objective’ and most valuable reports on all damned things in the world! – GR
