During the Watergate scandal, the Journalistic profession seemed to be an essential column supporting democratic republicanism the world over. The public held newspapers and journalists in the highest esteem. Over the years, studies show that Journalists rank about the same as used car salespeople in the mind of the public. What about the Indian journalists? Where do they rank? I cannot remember a single incident of Indian journalists doing anything honorable..anywhere..ever! The Indian journalists are not just pathetic failures, They are part of the criminal illiberal political enterprise in India.
I can make cases after cases demonstrating the evilness of the Indian press, the media and the journalists in India. but let me talk about one important and horrible incident that cries for journalists to do their jobs, but the Indian presstitutes have conveniently kept quiet and in turn have participated in one of the greatest injustices in India.
There was a horrible incident that happened in Gujarat India in 2002. .
The Godhra train burning was an incident that occurred on the morning of 27 February 2002, in which 59 people died in a fire inside the Sabarmati Express train near the Godhra railway station in the Indian state of Gujarat. The victims were mainly Hindu pilgrims who were returning from the city of Ayodhya after a religious ceremony at the disputedBabri Masjid site. The commission set up by the Government of Gujarat to investigate the train burning spent 6 years going over the details of the case, and concluded that the fire was arson committed by a mob of 1000-2000 people. A commission appointed by the central government, whose appointment was later held to be unconstitutional, stated that the fire had been an accident. A court convicted 31 Muslims for the incident and the conspiracy for the crime,although the actual causes of the fire have yet to be proven conclusively.
The event is widely perceived as the trigger for the violence that followed, which resulted in widespread loss of life, destruction of property and homelessness. Estimates of casualties range from the official figures of 790 Muslims and 254 Hindus, to upwards of 2000 casualties. Some hold the view that the attack on the train was a “staged trigger” for premeditated rioting.
This article is not particularly about the incident of burning of the train killing all those Hindu women and children nor is it about the aftermath of retaliation where many people from both Hindu and Muslims (More Muslims than Hindu) revenge attack. This is about the role of the press in India and what they are guilty of.
Two things that happened.. First, Then govt of India (The anti Hindu Catholic congress govt appointed one of their own far leftist ex supreme court justice to investigate the cause of the train burning. This Judge in his report (not a court hearing with due process with evidence and cross examination..it was a one man’s findings) basically stated that the burning of the train was an accident due to women using cooking stove in the train and that this happened exactly at the train station of a Muslim village and that was not germane to the incident. Interesting. It seemed far fetched..but hey, he was a a supreme court justice.. We ought to give benefit of the doubt to this “honorable” justice.
Second event was a more detailed court hearing with evidence and witness and cross examination..A detailed due process of the law. At the end of this due process the court convicted 31 Muslims for the incident (for setting a train full of women and children on fire killing them all which started a riot) and the conspiracy for the crime.
Now, we have two Justices here with two verdict and one of them is telling a lie and conspired against one religious group and either need to sentenced to death or at least impeached and one is telling the truth.. But which one is the evil? . The far left Supreme court justice appointed by the anti Hindu Sonia congress government or the Justice who presided over a due process? This Judge actually sentenced 31 “innocent” Muslim of India to prison for a mass murder they did not commit? or was the Supreme court ex Justice who in his anti Hindu attitude make up his story seeding into the minds of Indian Muslims a deep hatred and rationalization for their hatred against Hindus? Only one of the justices can be right. But which one?
Would this not be the most important investigative journalist opportunity for the Indian press and its journalists? or are they the presstitutes of the anti Hindu congress Party? Who actually knows which of the two Judges was the honest one? One was pure evil to quietly smother this horrible event, since they feel they are part of the anti Hindu “secular” team of India and they need to protect one of their own? or is it the other one who was willing to throw 31 innocent citizens in prison. In which case shouldn’t the press/media of India be fighting for those “innocent” men incarcerated in Jail?
Are Indians so apathetic that they do not care to find out which one was right? OR do they not care about India’s journalistic integrity?
IMO, India needs a revolution… not the kind of revolution to throw a government..but a revolution to enter the Bastille of the press, the Media (TV and Print) and take them to the guillotine (metaphorically speaking) for their role direct and indirect in constantly creating disharmony among Indians on ethnic and religious lines and in being a prime contributor and facilitator to religious riots in India.
I shall be documenting from time to time…the various evil committed by the Presstitudes of India here.. so please keep checking back once in a while.
Here is a glaring example of an alleged “journalist” who actually got physical against an individual in NYC during PM Modi’s visit to the US. Remember folks, this is the US, the person who was assaulted by this Pressittude could have shot this guy in return on the basis of self defense. The victim of this assault has a right to stand his ground in many states of the US. This presstitude is fortunate that he was not shot dead when he decided to assault someone who he disagreed with.
I was on a visit to India about 4 years ago and visited N.Delhi (I had lived in N.Delhi for about a year, so I thought it would be good to visit old friends). During this visit, my good friend took me to one of the uppity club in Lodhi Road where I met two interesting people (names withheld to protect my friend)., One was a Bengali professor from Delhi University and the other was a mother of one of the popular leftist TV channel of India whose correspondent lived and worked in New York. During the course of the dinner I found both were batting for the Maoists and telling me that the Maoists movement was justified (Maoists are leftist terrorists of India who kill people who own owned 5 acre of lands while accusing them of being “Feudal land lords”) . Even the far left congress Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has said That The Maoists are the greatest threat to India’s democracy. I can understand the Bengali woman professor (It meets all the criteria of a loser leftist stereotype) but the correspondent working for this TV channel living in NY? OMG…these communists do not go to communist countries…they travel and live in capitalistic societies while pissing on the hands that feeds them.
Here is another leftist woman from India who travel to the most successful society to pontificate about the virtues of socialism
Incident #3 –
Ayodhia Verdict and the evil mechanization of the Indian Prestitutdes.
The mainstream media in India is for the most part almost always Marxist leftist indoctrinated losers. This lot cannot accept if the Hindus and the Muslims of India get along or if the Hindus and Christians get along. For this Marxist leftists (Indian media which is a big part of this junta), Hindus have to be defeated and humiliated and keep the tension going otherwise their own existence is in question. TOI, The Hindustan times, The Hindu, The Outlook NDTV etc are some the institutionalized leftists enterprise. The Ayodhia case is an eye opener and its documented much better here
Do you feel the writers were silent when you were targeted?
Taslima: Most writers were silent when my book was banned in West Bengal, when 5 fatwas were issued against me in India, when I was thrown out of West Bengal, when I was kept under house arrest in Delhi for months and was forced to leave India, when my mega serial for TV was banned. I have been struggling alone for the right to live here and for my freedom of expression. Not only they were silent, famous writers like Sunil Ganguly and Shankha Ghosh appealed to Buddhadeb Bhattacharya, the then CM of West Bengal, to ban my book.
Are writers guilty of double standards when it comes to dissent?
Taslima: Yes, I agree. Many writers are guilty of double standards when it comes to dissent.
You recently tweeted that there’s a problem with the way secularism has been practised in India …
Taslima: Yes. Most secular people are pro-Muslims and anti-Hindu. They protest against the acts of Hindu fundamentalists and defend the heinous acts of Muslim fundamentalists.
Do you feel the Indian PM should speak more empathetically when it comes to Muslims and violence against minorities in India?
Taslima: Politicians appease Muslims for votes in India. Muslims get so much favour that angers many Hindus. It is true that sometimes Muslims get tortured only because they are Muslims. But it happens to other religious community too. In Canning, a Hindu village in West Bengal, was burnt down by Muslim fanatics in 2013. If Muslims were brutally persecuted in India, they would have left India for neighbouring Muslim countries like Hindu minorities have been leaving Bangladesh and Pakistan since Partition.
