Bharat Ratna Baba Saheb Dr B R Ambedkar launched his first newspaper, Mooknayak, on 31st January 1920. It is exactly after 100 years, the Department of Mass Communication wants to organize the National Conference titled “Dr. BR Ambedkar and Ideological Journalism” to celebrate the event and to pay rich tributes to the Journalistic efforts of Baba Saheb and building the Nation through Journalism. For Dr Ambedkar Journalism was the mission to voice the demands of the voiceless and to give strength to the perspective of the underprivileged. The title Mooknayak, which literally means the leader of the Dumb, signifies the importance of the voice of the voiceless. The Ideological Journalism was a powerful weapon to counter the misinformation and disinformation, first realized by Baba Saheb. Later, he also started Bahishkrit Bharat, Janata (People), Prabhuddha Bharat (Enlightened India). In all his newspapers and magazines through quality of writings and sticking to professional and ethical values, Ambedkar waged the War of the Words against all kinds of discrimination and for equal opportunities for all.
