The idea around what exactly is nationalism or what act qualifies as nationalistic has always been at the helm of discussion. While the idea in itself has a lot of meanings, the effects that it has on the society as a whole and subsequently on the nation is largely accepted by all. The present research paper delves into the idea of nationalism and how it affects the society (and in turn the nation) by citing certain examples. From there, the paper focuses on how the media has affected the society. Finally, the paper goes onto see whether media plays any kind of a role in affecting the narrative around nationalism, and if yes, then what are the consequences of this affect that the media brings on the society.
