It had to happen. Sooner or later, the liberals would start revising and smoothening out the narrative of what happened at NIT Srinagar, to ensure total conformity with their preferred narrative. You have to almost admire the dedication of liberals, their determination to make sure that not even a single event stands out in public memory against their narrative…no they must work on it and revise its history till we only have one single Orwellian narrative of what happened. And now, it is time for the events at NIT Srinagar to be subsumed by this narrative…no they accept the fact that a handful of nationalist students faced intimidation and rape from a violent majority of Kashmiris. No, that would go against the sacred narrative of peaceful Kashmiris being oppressed by the evil Hindus.
And so it is that Mameluk Sandeep Pandey takes to the DailyO to begin the formal revision of what happened at NIT Srinagar:
I want to point out this article for THREE reasons. The first is about how liberals have begun to rewrite the narrative of what happened at NIT Srinagar. The second reason is to discuss the fallacious Commie economic views of the author that we will find out in course of the article. The third reason is to explain how people like Sandeep Pandey do the maximum damage to Hindus of India, which I will do at the end. If my memory serves me correctly, this Sandeep Pandey is a Commie prof who used to teach at BHU and got kicked out recently. Whoever it was that got this Mameluk kicked out, whether it was Modi or RSS or ABVP or Israel or America or CIA or Mossad, thank you for it. One less Commie preacher on campus…
First, let’s read:
“Some Kashmiri students have been alleged to have raised anti-India slogans and burst firecrackers upon India’s defeat. The Kashmiri students allege that the violence was started by non-Kashmiri students the next day when a group waving tricolour and chanting “Bharat Mata ki jai” attacked a group of Kashmiri students returning from Friday prayers.”
Beautiful. That thing about attacking Kashmiri students returning from Friday prayers is beautifully planted to put the blame squarely on the nationalist students! Once this accusation has been planted, the rest of the liberals will build upon it, referencing each other until it becomes the established truth. And what about the allegations made by the nationalist students that the other side began the violence, the intimidation and even made rape threats? Is there any space for that? No, of course not…instead we get this:
“The police used lathicharge to control students in which some non-Kashmiri students were hurt and subsequently Central Reserve Police Force, actually a paramilitary, has replaced the Jammu & Kashmir police on campus.”
The construction of that sentence is a work of art. Let’s analyze it piece by piece:
a) “The police used lathicharge to control students“: the word “control” here used to imply that the nationalist kids were the hoodlums.
b) “ some non-Kashmiri students were hurt” : a quick acknowledgement of reality.
c) “subsequently Central Reserve Police Force, actually a paramilitary, has replaced the Jammu & Kashmir police on campus.” : Focus shifted immediately to CRPF and calling it a paramilitary to imply that it is the state which is being oppressive.
Wonderfully done. Slip in a short sentence acknowledging the truth in between two lines of diverting rhetoric that conforms to your agenda and no one will notice the slice of truth.
Thus ends Sandeep Pandey’s description of events at NIT Srinagar. No mention of how badly the nationalist students were bullied and how they received rape threats. The narrative is being revised to fit the agenda. The next liberal who writes about NIT Srinagar will make the next small revision, perhaps something like this: “The J&K police stepped in to save Kashmiri students from violence. For this effort, the J&K police was punished by replacing them with the CRPF, a paramilitary force“. The next liberal will work on the story some more and so on…until the final narrative looks something like this a few months from now:
“Innocent Kashmiri students were returning after Friday prayers when NIT Srinagar students affiliated with ABVP attacked them violently and made rape threats. The J&K police stepped in to protect the Kashmiri students. At this, the Home Ministry in Delhi removed the J&K police and deployed the CRPF, a paramilitary force, to intimidate Kashmiri students”.
Sandeep Pandey’s article now shifts to condemning people for having nationalist feelings around the Indian cricket team. As I hinted before, here we will see an example of the kind of fallacious Commie thinking that has kept Commie ruled West Bengal behind for 40 years:
“BCCI itself claims to be a private body inspite of its pompous name. How could a team constituted by it be considered a national team?”
Now, BCCI is a den of corruption and no one in their right mind would have anything kind to say about its functioning. And for sure the BCCI’s team cannot in fact be considered a “national team”. But let us see if Sandeep Pandey would apply this line of questioning to other things… Ok, for instance, what about our “national media”? How come a bunch of private channels with headquarters in Delhi, Noida and Gurgaon get to be called the “national media”?
As for BCCI having a pompous name, what about the National Alliance of People’s Movements (NAPM) of which Sandeep Pandey is a part? How many actual people do you have in your so called “National Alliance” of people’s movements for a nation of 1.25 billion? Why is it that you get to call it a “national alliance”?
“That BCCI refuses to have a representative of Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) on its governing council shows that it doesn’t want to be held accountable to the people at large..”
Let’s see NGOs like yours agreeing to be held accountable to the people at large by coming under RTI. The BCCI does not want to be held accountable to anyone because we all know that the BCCI is corrupt. Why is your so called “National Alliance” also hiding from being accountable to the people? What are you hiding?
“Students from both sides whether they raised pro- or anti-India slogans have demonstrated immaturity in asserting their nationalistic preference based on the outcome of a game of cricket.”
Yes, no doubt its immature. But it is definitely much better than the Commies who assert their nationalist preference based on the decisions of the Chinese government. Just take this statement from V S Achutanandan, the top Commie in Kerala, who is in the running for Chief Ministership when LDF wins the state in May:
Do you see that? Please…please dont harm Achutanandan’s image by spreading the malicious rumor that he donated blood for Indian soldiers in the 1962 war…
No, you read that correctly. There’s no typo in that sentence. In Commie circles, your stock goes down if they find out that you might have supported the Indian Army! These are the Commies who have come to teach us now that we are being too immature by associating patriotism with BCCI’s cricket team! At least we are not tying our patriotism to the Supreme Commander of the Red Army!
“IPL has also highlighted that these are professional players who can be bought and sold, which implies that they play for money. In IPL, they can switch teams depending on who pays them more. Similarly, even when they play in national teams the prime motivating factor for the players is money. It is unthinkable that any player would play for his national team merely out of a feeling of patriotism without any payment in exchange.”
This is the fallacious Commie thinking that has resulted in West Bengal losing 4 decades in a row. Yes, Sandeep Pandey, like everyone else in the whole world, the players in the Indian cricket team play for money and we already know that. I know you feel very smart and wise pointing that out. By pointing it out, you think you are giving us some great new insight. But the joke is on you because we already knew that. You see, Mr. Commie, we are grown ups and we live in the grown up world. We know that everyone works for money or its equivalent in terms of fame, etc: doctors, teachers, movie stars, scientists, sportsmen… And WE are grown up enough to understand that when everyone is free to pursue his personal interest, we are better off as a society. The ambitions of Edison gave us the light bulb. The ambitions of Mark Zuckerberg gave us Facebook. WE are adults who realize that society is always better off when everyone pursues his own happiness.
So, the joke is really on you, Commie Pandey. WE are grown up, you are still the CHILD who hopes that utopia will come if you share half your lunch with others. That is YOUR childish Commie fantasy. In the grown up world, we let people pursue their ambitions and find ways to actually make the pie bigger so that everyone has enough to eat.
“When the game of cricket and its management is so highly commercialised does it make any sense to associate nationalistic feelings with these teams? In fact, the commercial interests exploit our nationalistic feelings.”
Agreed. Now let’s say the same about NGOs and the media. If the commercial interests exploit our nationalistic feelings, NGOs exploit our charitable feelings and natural empathy for fellow human beings. In fact, these people end up crowning themselves as guardians of the “idea of India” and what not. Ha! They claim to be protecting our democracy…lolz! How could these commercialized jokers be protecting our democracy and freedom of expression? The CRPF jawan who falls to Commie bullets in Chhattisgarh is the real protector of our democracy and free speech, don’t you think?
I am including the next line purely for fun:
“When writer and activist Arun***ti Roy was once asked to convey her best wishes to the Indian team before an international event she said her favourite team was Sri Lanka. Why should every Indian be expected to endorse the Indian team in a sporting event and worse why should this determine out commitment to nationalism?”
Indeed, intolerance is rising 🙂 It was extremely impolite of someone to ask a Pakistani to convey best wishes to the Indian team 🙂
“BJP leader and BCCI secretary Anurag Thakur has said, Maharashtra will lose Rs 100 crore if IPL were to be moved out of Maharashtra….What people like Thakur don’t realise is money cannot be a substitute for water or food. If you have money, but there is no potable water left, how would you quench your thirst?”
Again with the childish Commie economics. What people like Sandeep Pandey don’t realize is that it is actually money that brings food and water to the table. Do you grow your own food, Sandeep Pandey? Do you go to the river or lake everyday to fetch your own water? Have you thought how food reaches your table and how water reaches your tap? It’s because trade made it possible for food to come to the market. How come people die of starvation in Africa but not in America? Does Africa not have water in its rivers, sun in its sky and soil in its ground? Yet, small farmers who actually grow food in Africa die of starvation but people in New York who may never have seen a farm in their whole life get enough to eat. It’s because America has a functioning economy and Africa doesn’t.
Again, this is the fallacious Commie philosophy of people like Sandeep Pandey that made West Bengal a wasteland.
I will now come to my final point about how Commies like Sandeep Pandey pose the biggest headache for Hindus. It’s not just because he hates us Hindus. Rather, I am angry with Sandeep Pandey because people like him make it possible for the BJP to get away with doing nearly nothing for Hindus. A few days back I wrote about NIT Srinagar and I severely criticized the BJP’s lack of willingness to stand up for the nationalist students. But look what a guy like Sandeep Pandey has done. By mounting an offensive on the nationalist students, he has now relieved the pressure on the BJP. All that BJP has to do to stay in business is not be actively anti-Hindu. They don’t actually have to do anything for us because we have to support them. People like Sandeep Pandey and the liberal establishment leave us with no choice.
