MEDIA WARS- FIFTH PART. THE GAME OF THE FOUR PILLARS- నాలుగు స్తంభాలాట
Two incidents were reported in small print today. As a responsible Indian Nationalist, I do not advocate these incidents making headlines and creating tensions in the country. But, we can not lose sight of the fact that these incidents have similar backgrounds and similar result as the Dadri incident. What happened to our intellectuals that they maintain silence on these incidents, while the make undue noises otherwise? Killing of a VHP activist in Karnataka remained either unreported or not condemned. One Senior Editor involved in the Madison madness went to the extent of saying that the VHP man deserved it. The two incidents that I referred happened in Bihar and UP.
1. In Bihar a car driven by a minority community driver ran into the house of a majority community house owner killing an old man and his grand daughter. The driver was nabbed by locals, thrashed and handed over to the Police. Police took it easy. Next morning, a rumor was spread by interested elements that the same car ran into the house of another Hindu and injured an old woman. (This was neither confirmed nor denied by police). A riot broke out. A police man of majority community was killed in rioting. A youth of majority community was killed in firing. Both Media and Intellectuals did not consider loss of four lives as serious as Dadri lynching. Killing a police officer on duty was not as serious.
2. In UP youths studying in a Madrasa in Agra pulled a 11 year old girl behind a temple and tried to sexually assault her. This is not as serious as Dadri, as per intellectuals. One VHP leader alleges a terrorist took shelter in the Madrasa for a week. Not serious even after what happened in Paris. Local Muslims joined the chorus to close own the Madrasa, but Police are playing hide and seek.
These two incidents did not make headlines. No intolerance debate was initiated by the Media. No awards were returned. What does all this indicate?
This is where the surmise that the whole debate surrounding "INTOLERANCE" of Hindus was well orchestrated by very experienced conspirators in India with active connivance/funding by International Organizations. It smacks of MAFIOSO style. After Hardik and Dadri, followed by "I ate beef, you ate beef" debate, a concerted effort was made by the so called intellectuals ( the title was the most misused in India). This was started, not surprisingly by none other than Ms.Nayantara Sehgal, the niece of Nehru, close to Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi. She was envious of Indira and Sanjay Gandhi and opposed them and their families tooth and nail.
She returned her Sahitya Academy award, ostensibly intolerant about the intolerance in the country. There is no definition of intolerance when you are talking of a population of 125 crore. It is ubiquitous. But, since Modi is at the helm, this woman whose life style is aristocratic felt intolerance was on the rise. In fact, post Modi, there are less incidents of communal tensions, caste wars etc., But for these perverted men and women, a statement by some one, some where on some issue without any violent intent seemed suddenly giving rise to intolerance. When she returned the award, the BJP should have exposed her history vis a vis Nehru family, should have exposed the rot in Sahitya Academy during her uncle's party's regimes.
This news made head lines as if Nayantara Sehgal was Caesar's sister or sister-in-law of Brutus and Shakespeare immortalized her character. It is a kind of Grand Opera show on Broadway, where she stabbed herself and started singing. NDTV joined the chorus followed by ABP News. These two channels bear a grudge on Modi regime. NDTV honchos are allergic in view of the FEMA notices and the inevitable money laundering investigations that may follow. Their impatience about Modi continuing for a second term is too overt to be hidden. They knew Modi was not such a person to talk too many words before action followed. Sources in the power corridors dried out. In place of cameras of Media people, CC cameras found their way into bureaucratic corridors. This suffocated the visiting Editors of few channels who were caught red handed on tapes, infamously known as Radia tapes. Paranoia that truth would come come out sooner or later made them so intolerant that they started the "intolerance' debate on full scale. Had BJP taken on Nayantara, links of Channels to the erstwhile power brokers and the rot in those Institutions under Congress regime, it would have applied temporary breaks on the self styled liberals out to destroy nation in the name of FOE.
Then came the bureaucrat poet Ashok Vajpayee. He enjoyed various positions under Congress regime. He need not have manipulated any award. The award givers would have manipulated him to be in the good books of the powers that be He returned the award. All hell broke lose. Channels, news papers sang only one song. Intellectuals are angry, they are frustrated, people (I do not know what they mean by people) are vexed with the intolerance that is all pervading. At least then, BJP could have started counter attack. By the time BJP gave a measured response the debate reached menacing proportions.
It was so well orchestrated that each day for one month or more one or two guys with heads on necks, calling them intellectuals (no test conducted for brain power) returning awards. Whoever used the word "tolerance" in whichever context was attributed to Right Wing Intolerance. President, RBI Governor, Dalai Lama etc., all were dragged into the mess. Besides Bihar polls, that is overtly seen as reason, the main reason lies in the fact that Modi is growing in stature internationally, his team of ministers and bureaucrats are working with devotion, people are feeling the change in the functioning of government without corruption. It made their task urgent. The most important factor that acted upon their small brains was the fact that Modi was gaining firm grip on the country's governance and unless he was disturbed each day with sinister campaign, he might not rest until he did what he promised. In this backdrop only Modi said with confidence at Wembley that he would complete what he started and no force on earth could stop him. Defeat in Bihar did not deter him a bit. This was a source of worry for Congress. The likes of Advani were used to attack him. They are spent forces and their word carries value not with .00001% of population. It is not a source of worry. Good! BJP is ignoring them and a few dissenting voices in Bihar.
The surmise that intolerance debate might have been part of larger conspiracy was proven beyond doubt, when Karnataka Government decided to celebrate Tipu Sultan Birthday on Diwali eve, the most important festival for the Hindus. Not only they took the decision to celebrate, but the Government lined up people from all fields to eulogize Tipu, the good things done by him. Can we say Lalu did all bad things? How can it be? A man's character is measured by the net of good and bad. KCR played the same game to woo Muslims in Hyderabad. He started showing Nizam in good light compared to Andhra rulers, Girish Karnad went a step further and asked Government to rename Airport after Tipu's name. So, they initiated a discussion not liked by the majority community and Christians alike. The idea was simple. Aggravate their feelings. See they react. Pit one community against the other. See they fight. Blame majority for fomenting trouble. This was played by Congress before and after independence. Why did they take 260+ years to celebrate Tipu birthday? Why only now when they say the country is passing through a phase of intolerance? We know the result. People died.
As the tables turned on Congress leaders by Dr. Swamy throwing a gauntlet in the form of irrefutable proof, the issue died a natural death. Now, all eyes are on the "INTOLERANCE" in the dynasty. Hope, nation shows what real intolerance looks like in the near future. One thing is certain. Many big fish will face the heat in the next 18 months and no conspiracy can derail the investigation process. MMS might have got temporary reprieve to make him prosecution witness. If he fails to fall in line, he too will have to be in the line.
The fate of the pseudo secular guys, intellectuals with brains under mortgage to foreign banks, (their interest is very high), the Pakistan apologists like Sudheendra, MS Aiyar or Salman Khurshid, the BackOps Rahuls, the Radia's Media, the Mafioso etc.is like Naseeruddin Hodja who bought his own donkey at fifty dinars' more price.
