The scientists are fully confident of their full proof RISAT. This is a kind of caution message to the terrorits and in other words to counter such attempts at grassroot level. We won\'t even know of such a launch if the media didn\'t publish it, which gives us a bit of relief. We must appreciate the media as the Mumbai attack would not have been a serious issue had it not been telecast then.

No ... it could have been revealed a year later so we could have collected valuable information during that time.

Media have a role to inform, educate and entertain. Disclosing all important national events before they actually happen or formally announced is not part of media\'s work or responsibility.
