The Real Talibans of India

via Dinesh Krishna published on January 27, 2009

When a female journalist called Soumya Vishwanathan was killed in
India’a national capital, the Chief Minister of Delhi Smt Sheila Dixit
blamed the dead female journalist for her own tragedy by saying that
she was too adventurous. The Media wholeheartedly supported Mrs Dixit
and went gaga over her shortly afterwards, when she won the Delhi
Assembly elections.

When Scarlett Keeling was raped and killed in Goa and the needle of
suspicion pointed to a strong nexus between the Goan Ministers, the
drug mafia and the sex racketeers, the media played it very safe by
conveniently choosing not to pursue the leads from the investigation.

When a 14-year-old German girl was raped by Rohit Monserrate, the
21-year-old son of Goa Education Minister Atanasio Monserrate who is
also a powerful political figure in Goa, and the girl’s mother was
repeatedly harassed and their lawyer was grievously injured in order to
coerce him to withdraw from the case, the Media didn’t find anything
extraordinary in that.

When Taslima Nasreen’s press conference was rudely disrupted and chairs
and all sorts of dangerous objects were thrown at her in full glare of
the cameras by the “secular” muslim jihadis of Hyderabad lead by the
MLAs of Majlis Ittehadul Muslimeen (MIM), the Media didnt at all find
anything amiss in that.

When Laxmi Oraon, an Adivasi woman was brutally thrashed and paraded
naked through the streets of Guwahati, Assam, with the whole police
paraphernalia and official state machinery in tow, the Media chose to
downplay the episode since, the victim was a hapless adivasi woman from
the lower strata of society.

The Media felt that since all the above unsavoury incidents had occured
in the states lead by Madam Sonia Antonia Maino’s puppets, it is all
perfectly legitimate and absolutely secular and progressive.

Kudos to the Media who are the Real Talibans of India.
