How Media Adds Fuel to Hindu Anguish

published on September 6, 2014

Folliwing the hartal call by Sangh Pariwar to protest against the brutal murder of RSS leader Manoj, Media houses had a topic to dwell upon, to add a touch of spice and make meaty their debates- ‘How has Kerala benefitted from the hartal? What has BJP gained from the hartal?’

Well, sounds logical at the first glance. But, looking a few steps further, it was quite evident that it was one that exposed the heights of animosity brimming in the hearts of intellectual beings and media houses, towards the person who was brutally murdered. If TP Chandrashekharan was slain under the shield of darkness for the perpetrators to remain incognito, Manoj’s was a brutal cold blooded murder, done in broad day light. And just three days back, the very same marauders had taken the life of another kinsperson, Suresh.

‘Rational thinkers’ like Basurendra Babu was quick to infer that there was nothing wrong in celebrating the murder of a person who was trying to kill one’s father. Going by his rationale, and taking into account the murders that have taken place in Kerala, in case there is a retaliation spree, RSS will require very little time to annihilate a couple of leaders .Kindly make note that this is not being pronounced with any strain of intimidation intertwined! But why aren’t media houses discussing these aspects as well?

If, in case, RSS retaliates for these two murders, media will be quick to grab the incidents and term them as ‘Victory of Amit Shah Strategies’ ” Well, you (media) can say anything. You have the right do so as well. It is always good to display commitment, when you are amply paid for getting a task executed. But care should be taken to see that the work done is not at the expense of wounding the sentiments of others.

There are scores of people in this land, who have lost in galore, just because they happen to be Sanatana Dharmis who worship fire, wind, trees, nature etc. We did forgive when the land belonging to Nairs and Ezhavas were seized and distributed freely to Pastors and Muslims, all in the name of socialism. We maintained silence when the lands belonging to those impoverished Adivasis, who do not even possess enough yarn to drape themselves, were trespassed into, for constructing resorts, churches and mosques. You did not suppress your glee when our temples and sacred groves were confiscated by the government. You lent a cold shoulder to a student, who was denied reservation, just because she was born in a Namboothiri family (a family steeped in the zeniths of poverty, that too). You, of course preferred M’ Adani and Thadiyantevide Naseer and the stake they claimed over human right realms. You shoved aside the rich tradition of our land and disavowed them and pasted maligning labels on our customs, depicting them as ‘superstitions’.

Pastors and Muslims have conquered the planet and ravaged ethnicities world over- many cultures have even been wiped out. Finally, the spree is witnessing a near annihilation of Yazdis in Iraq. The exterminators now have the aim of conquering India under various guises of ‘Project Joshua’, ‘Khurasan’ etc. This has, in fact, to a certain extent, been a successful venture too. They were able to dissect Akhand Bharat into Pakistan, Bangladesh etc. And as for our own land, Hindus live in morbid dread in places like Malappuram, Beemapalli etc. Kerala’s Pastors and Maulavis have specifically defined politics, to which they adhere… along with a bandwagon of politicians to comply to their wishes. Hasn’t the church in Sikkim become so powerful to decide when elections should be taking place? Hasn’t Malappuram become a place where Hindus dread selling food in public, during the month of Ramzan? Haven’t Communists become emboldened to challenge Sreekrishna Jayanthi celebrations in Kannur?

These are the happenings of Kerala. But today, the youth of Kerala are well not oblivious of what goes around them- they are well aware of the same. And since they are, it is not mandatory that they endure these in silence. They have, as embodiments, Swami Vivekananda and Veer Shivaji, who have given us the clarion cry,” Say with pride that you are a Hindu.”

Hindus of Kerala have borne the brunt since quite some time. Kerala’s Hindu society has been one which has disbursed love in abundance. But pronouncements issued by a certain misbegotten lot who are shamelessly skilled in distorting, has inflicted fathomless anguishing lesions in their hearts. After a span of sufferance, the smouldering volcano in them will eventually erupt. What will be witnessed thereafter will be a samhara thandava- a dance that unleashes liquidation. It would be good, if political organizations and media houses bear the same in mind.
