For the insiders of Lutyens Delhi, Smriti Irani is no less than a terrorist. One can imagine Rahul’s caretakers waking up in a sweat night after night, trembling in fear. After all, 2019 is coming and the clown prince will have to face the ferocious saffron tigress in Amethi. Come what may, Pappu can’t escape from Amethi, no trusted “Ramu kaka” of the family can run as a replacement. Pappu will have to face the tigress himself.
It is therefore no surprise that Smriti Irani has been the second most vilified personality in the Modi government, the first being Modi himself. And her stint as HRD Minister brought her face to face with the academic snake pit of secularism. They tried to drown her in a toxic cocktail of communism, sexism, elitism and rabid Hinduphobia.
As such, if one were to sit down and count the number of ways in which Smriti Irani deserves an apology…Ha! Well, I don’t know if Pappu can even count that far.. Anyway, here is the latest :
No dear media, it never was a “fake degree case”. She only made a typo in an affidavit, she never created a “fake degree” of any kind. By still referring to it as a “fake degree” case, you are continuing to be unfair to the minister, but then that is what your supari entails, doesn’t it?
But because she was a commoner and not a royal, the media dragged her through the mud over the alleged “fake degree” and took this ridiculous non-issue to every corner of this nation. The media gave a further impetus to this case after Kejriwal’s darling law minister was found to have printed fake graduation and law degrees. No, the two cases are not comparable, they never were. Smriti Irani made a typo in an affidavit. Jitendra Tomar committed repeated acts of criminal forgery : first he forged a graduation certificate, then a law degree certificate. Finally, when his credentials were challenged, Tomar even forged an RTI reply!
Jitendra Tomar is a certified criminal. But for the sold out media, a typo was as good as 2 forged certificates and a forged RTI!
It is no surprise that yesterday when the Delhi court came down heavily on the petitioner against Smriti Irani for trying to needlessly harass the minister, the media made it a footnote and buried the story quickly. Can you see even a trace of this story on any news channel or in any newspaper today? Do you see any mention of this story on Firstpost or Troll or any other news website? Of course not. Because their bluff has been called. And there is of course no need for media zealots to apologize to Smriti Irani for sullying her reputation in the last two and a half years. After all Smriti is just a commoner and the supari media was just doing what it been hired to do.
Had it been a royal, the media would have been quacking in its boots before speaking up. Just compare the ZERO FOLLOWUP by media in the British Buddhu case to the two and half year long ordeal faced by Smriti Irani. I am willing to be charitable and say that this was just a typo…
But will the supari media give the same benefit to Smriti Irani? Of course not. Because she is a commoner and Rahul Gandhi is a prince. How dare we suggest that India’s royal family is not Indian? After all, their clan has copyrighted the idea of India. So, Pandit Nehru can busy himself with obtaining a “proper horoscope” for Rajiv from a “competent astrologer” Nehru will always be the posterboy of scientific temper. But, hell will break loose if Smriti Irani dares to do this:
Hey supari media, let me tip you off to some big news. You were right. Actually Smriti Irani does have a fake degree. She keeps that fake certificate in a secret locker in England. To find it, all you have to do is go to Cambridge University and then look for the “Lennox Cook School”
There in the main hall at Lennox Cook School, University of Cambridge, you will find a big saffron locker. Incidentally, the code for opening the combination lock is the same as Mukesh Ambani’s Swiss bank account number which you can easily get from Kejriwal.
Oh and if you have any trouble finding the location of Lennox Cook School at University of Cambridge, you should ask for help from a “competent astrologer”. Just like Pandit Nehru used to.
