I came across a Times of India article on the internet a couple of days back. The only thing that caught my attention was the name. It mentioned MODI. Now, Narendra Modi has long been a favourite and on my scope and if I had means I would definitely “do” something instead of just writing and grumbling and abusing. But at this instance my ire and apprehension was directed towards the author of the said article. I quote:
Rajdharma prescribes that the leader has to be righteous in the dispensation of justice when a storm brews in the state, threatening the very existence of the entity he is duty-bound to protect. Making no distinction between friends and foes, Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi did precisely what ‘rajdharma’ or righteousness calls for.
Mistaken by ‘hath-dharmi’ (the notional obstinacy), many a people accuse him of engineering the 2002 riots in the state in the wake of the post-Godhra carnage. Some even let their imagination run riot, insinuating that he manipulated the Godhra episode to teach ‘Muslims a lesson’. Nothing could be further from the truth, for he, and he alone, saved Muslims of the state from the fury of the mob, post-Godhra.
Mr. Khazanchi, the writer in question, is the immovable kinds probably. Or, maybe one of those who shuts his ears and shouts “la la la” to drown out another opinion. Freedom of Speech notwithstanding this is the kind of garbage that I call insinuating and having zero value when one measures it on the scales of morality and righteousness. Righteous, Is the name of the article. Modi is righteous, rest is hi(story), which, for the mildly intelligent is an enigma no more. We get such trash everyday but when it is from a so called “senior journalist” it is like a stamp of approval on the already bulging envelope of “Build bridges and good roads and get away with murder”. The media in question tags the usual disclaimer along with the article itself which is the general CYA (Cover your Ass) tactic. One can say that Mr. Khazanchi must be a wildly accurate and, not to forget, honourable fellow who deals with the truth no matter how ugly it might be; the calling spade, a spade kind of a guy. His introduction says that very same thing. But, the more you read and digest, you realise that by that parallel, even Raj Thakarey and Pramod Muthalik and likes can be bracketed as such. Of course, to be politically accurate I shouldn’t leave out Akbaruddin Owaisi who overloaded steam a month ago. If I do I will be branded a “fanatic” before one can say Jehad!
As if that wasn’t enough the comments section had more gems. I was flabbergasted when I read them.
Dear Kafir Hindus, your children will meet the same fate like in afghanistan, pakistan, kashmir, bangladesh and north east. In these regions Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists, Jains and parsis are almost extinct. These regions were part of Hindustan before invasion by turks, mughals and other islamic warriors. In rest of the parts of Hindustan our population is increasing exponentially. Due to our high breeding capability, conversions and multi millions of non-stop immigration from the neighbour countries. You Hindus are still being ruled by the descendents / progeny of Mughals. Grandfather of Nehru was a Muslim Mughal man and his name was Ghiyasuddin Ghazi. Even Mahatma Gandhi was a great fan of Muslims and Islam. He fell on our feet and begged us not to leave India during partition. He even started fast upto death for our sake. Thats why the poor guy was killed by a RSS terrorist Nathuram Godse. We all INDIAN muslims are totally united in our efforts and mission. While Hindus can keep on fighting on region, language, caste and colour…hehehehe…lol…
This is what a dumbf*** had to say. Obviously the prick is someone masquerading as a Muslim. For all it matters let me say this, We. Muslims, are not as we are being made out by the shit newspapers seem like. I know this might sound like an apology but, mind you, it is NOT. I’m not apologising for the crass portrayal of the media. I’m not there to apologise for the way non-muslims are forced to think that muslims are scum. I’m just here to pick out a needle from a hay stack. You might be aware just how difficult that is! There are those who expect muslims to wear their patriotism on their sleeves all the time. It’s like every action is adjudged by a fine toothed comb. Some times there are reasons to do that, I agree. For example, that scene outside Azad Maidan when they were supposed to be “protesting” and it turned violent and some dumbf*** vandalised public property. Well, yes, that was pathetic. I totally agree. The thing is that these zealots don’t understand this shit. If one is knowing and is aware of the fact that the media is hell bent on TRPs then at least behave in a dignified manner and not be immature! These hoodlums who do these moronic crap are not even the kind of muslims that would sway a general opinion. They’re not educated, they don’t pray, they are the ones who would sway to the beats of ‘qawwalis’ on a truck while the poor muessin is trying to call for namaaz, which they will conveniently ignore.
Back to the context, no mentally balanced Muslim would make a comment like that. That’s not the way we think. There are other comments which make a more plausible ground for a discussion. But mostly are rants.
About Modi. What do I say that hasn’t already been said in dailies and weekly magazines? Unsubstantiated bullcrap is still the norm of the day. Even after Officers come clean and speak out; after Tehelka’s sting operation and what not there are still people who believe that this man is the future upon which India will rise.
I don’t like Modi. I don’t have to. Even if you, for a minute, ignore the Godhra carnage there is still some real good evidence that Modi is a moron. I use moron in a very charitable way with a wide circumference ranging from a loony to a mass-murderer.
