A befitting rebuttal to “The Hindu”

I refer the report “From ‘India Shining’ to ‘India was Shining’” in your “esteemed” newspaper dated 03 May 2009.

In the said report, your team of “Eminent Historians” has criticised the preamble of BJP’s manifesto (meticulously prepared by Dr.Murali Manohar Joshi), taking some excerpts from it.

As a committed citizen of this great Hindu nation, I felt outraged at the audacity of your “eminences” in trying to belittle the past glory of our nation and timeless civilization. The ignorance and non-application of mind of the “courageous and nameless” eminences was so appalling that they deserved a fitting rebuttal through you.

If you, as a media house, do not have the requisite knowledge to analyse the manifesto of a “Nationalist” party, then you should go to “truly” eminent and learned persons, who can do an unbiased analysis. Instead, in an exhibition of your bias towards communist ideology, you have taken the help of your team of “leftist historians”, who have attempted to disparage the great Hindu ethos of this great Hindu country. It is indeed thoughtful of Shri Arun Shourie that he called this brazen lot as “Eminent Historians” and I am in a way happy that you have gladly used the same term to refer your team in the above-said report.

I would not have bothered, had you paid equal attention to the manifestos of other parties as well. But, you have been selective in your criticisms and you have not conducted yourself in a neutral and unbiased manner as per journalistic ethics. So, you certainly deserved a fitting response.

As I was preparing a reply contesting the comments of your “eminences”, I received a mail with an attachment showing a meticulously prepared ‘Pdf’ format, making mincemeat of your eminent historians’ observations, disproving their “fictions”. This befitting rebuttal titled “The Hindu vs. Dr.Joshi” has been issued by a team of Scholars from www.tamiltalk.org , who have indeed taught some fantastic history lessons to your eminences.

Though it has been a long time since you have changed your ideology and moved away from nationalism, I feel that you still have the required decorum and decency as a newspaper, and hence, I request you to kindly publish this document, which has come in response to your ‘eminent’ historians. I trust you would realize your moral responsibility and do the needful, before the final phase of elections, to undo the damage you have inflicted not only on the BJP but also on the nation.

Thanking You,

With Warm Regards


The Hindu vs Dr Joshi
