Sorry folks, I couldn’t write yesterday because I was on a long journey home to India. And earlier today, I was too busy showing my patriotism with a huge desi meal 🙂
My last post was on the successful pest control operation by Madhya Pradesh police in Khandwa, which I wrote in a hurry at the airport. I got so excited on hearing the news that I knew I couldn’t survive the long flight back home to write about this. And with Congress digging its own grave by supporting SIMI “activists”, my smile was almost too big for my face.
I’ve been thinking. Seems I left something out in my post. I forgot this: remember this?
Remember this note from one wannabe street fighter named Rajdeep Sardesai? I regard this note as one of the most disgraceful pieces in the history of Indian journalism, where a so called liberal gave reasons for not giving a damn about the murder of an innocent man. This is the post where Indian liberals went from practicing neglect towards Hindu lives to actively spitting on dead bodies of Hindus. It also showed that social media had gotten under their skin and they knew that the charges had stuck.
As Rajdeep admits:
“The killing of a Bajrang Dal activist in Moodbidri in Karnataka on Tuesday has sparked off the charge of selective outrage once again: why hasn’t the media covered Moodbidri with the same intensity as Dadri, we are asked.”
And then he proceeds to give his “reasons”. If you are prone to vomiting, I suggest you don’t read his next words.
“But when we seek to compare two instances without even bothering to examine the political context, we are entering dangerous territory. Prashant Poojary was a Bajrang Dal activist in Moodbidri. The Bajrang Dal has self-admittedly used violence as a weapon against minorities… ..He didn’t deserve to die under any circumstance but there is a political context to his death ”
Whoa! Let’s see. He was a mere member of Bajrang Dal and you say that Bajrang Dal is violent, so the murder of any Bajrang Dal member anywhere needs to be seen as less important because there is a “political context”.
Whoa! Tell me Rajdeep, WHAT ABOUT SIMI?
Does SIMI have a “political context”? Has SIMI ever used violence? Let us know. In fact, the 8 vermin killed in Khandwa were all actual accused heinous terrorist attacks from Ahmedabad to Madhya Pradesh. They were actually running away having murdered an innocent policemen merely hours ago! What happened to political context now, dear Rajdeep and dear liberals? How come the lives of SIMI activists matter so much, but Bajrang Dal members are told that their murders are not worth outraging over because of political context?
I don’t know if Prashant Poojary had cases against him, if any. Even if he had charges, I can bet he was not accused of bomb making, carrying out multiple terror attacks in several states, breaking out of jail twice and slitting the throat of a policeman. But, Prashant Poojary was guilty merely because he was part of the Bajrang Dal. Prashant Poojary’s life is worthless because some member of Bajrang Dal somewhere broke the law, but we should outrage over the death of SIMI “activists” who have just murdered a policeman! Such is the practice in liberal India, where kanwariyas are terrorists and SIMI only has “activists”.
In this liberal world, it is not the persecution of Hindutva activists, but the “persecution complex” of the Hindu right that must end.
“This ludicrous persecution complex of those pseudo patriot Hindus who call themselves nationalists must end.”
You are lucky Rajdeep. The RSS leader who was hacked to death in Bengaluru last month, in full view of the public and far away from the eyes of the media, will no longer suffer from a “persecution complex”. Guess he learned his lesson, right?
“Their spurious nationalism is based on hatred of the Mussalman and little else:…”
No Rajdeep. It is your spurious journalism that is based on hatred of the Hindu and little else. You don’t give a damn about “political context”. You only invented that excuse because it suited you to have a fig leaf to hold up against charges that of not caring about the loss of the innocent life of Prashant Poojary. Now that SIMI “activists” got what they deserved, you liberals are back to respecting every single life. See?
Yes, the life of a policeman is equal to the life of a terrorist, but Prashant Poojary’s life isn’t human, no? Because Poojary had “political context”, unlike SIMI, right?
“Liberal bashing is now a cottage industry for some who believe they now have a political mandate to crush all dissent.”
Still better than those who think they have a birthright and/or divine mandate to crush all dissent. Thanks.
