"Media has neither been gagged nor can be gagged", Omar said when asked about advisory of the Union government to TV Channels.
    
In an advisory issued on October 21, the Information and Broadcasting Ministry had asked TV channels that when the Prime Minister or the President makes an address on a national day like August 15 or January 26, it should be taken with sensitivity.
    
Modi in a rally in Uttar Pradesh's Bahraich district had alleged that an advisory was issued by the Centre to TV media on why he was shown ‘at par’ with the PM while he was addressing the nation from the Red Fort on August 15.
        
Such talks are being propagated to incite people, Omar said.
