Will the English Media yield to public pressure?

Mr.Mehta, is hallucinating Mr.Modi hates media, here we go again cause and effect Newton’s law is being forwarded by Mr. Vinod Mehta, No; this is not the correct reading of what Mr.Mehta is saying? There is a genuine complaint that Mr.Modi has not engaged or has been drawn into a slugfest with the media. Why should he? Does he have any chinks that need to be covered, have not been able to detect, he is not run of the mill corrupt inefficient yet another Chief Minister in India, who needs the media. Words are needed where action is weak or fails. Request Mr.Mehta for once to speak as a common Indian citizen without the accompanying halo of a journalist, which is the worst abuse today in India. The only perspective that individuals masquerading as journalists have is free drinks and food.

It is the guilt conscience that makes the offender perceive that he is wanted by the law, all the misplaced perception that you have, ostensibly which Mr.Modi exhibits towards the media are a manifestation of your conscience. Is it not a fact that as head of Gujarat state he must be impartial and also seen to be so, can we with any degree of conviction say the same for our mainstream English Media. The past 8 years it is the media which has been providing us with our daily fix of venomous diatribe which would put the deadliest Cobra, Viper and even the Boa constrictor to shame.

The decoding we take it at face value since it is coming from a very senior “Journalist”

02nd of April 2010 is indeed a watershed day for India not just the Congress, many in the print and electronic media have issued confessional statement on voluntary basis. Thank you we have noted the contents and the trend continues. Media is frustrated with its inability to carry out the execution after having condemned him in the Kangaroo court establish by Congress.

“Whether Modi was or was not the mastermind of the “genocide”,
“mass murder”, “carnage” has, in a sense, become a side-issue. What we have on display is a catch-me-if-you-can game and Byzantine legalese. Even after his 10-hour questioning by the SIT, he appears only marginally disadvantaged. Let me quickly add that I am totally with the sainted Teesta Setalvad, Rajdeep Sardesai, Arnab Goswami (although I am not entirely sure which side he is on!), Barkha Dutt and Siddharth Varadarajan, but at this moment Mr Modi seems to have the better of the hacks.”

Is this the confirmation that it is all about politics; the quest for justice is a convenient smoke screen. The idiom of US vs THEM being played out in full public glare with blatant disregards for professional ethics, the head must be delivered on a platter to the paymasters.

Permit me as a mango man (Aam Adami) of this country to state that we refuse to be converted into brain dead zombies. Which the individuals named by you have been attempting for the past 8 years. Alcoholics can seek refuge and assistance of the alcoholic anonymous. Unfortunately we have not been able to establish a separate institution for Modi fixated addicts.

The convoluted statements and eye witness accounts are just about beginning to unravel under their own weight; this is one such link…ghts.html?complete=1

your covert admiration for Modi may soon translate into a very overt act. The affect of 2 blogs and placing in public domain, the speech of Feb 2002 in the Gujarat Assembly, along with the appeals for calm made on doordarshan seem to have had the desired effect in 2010 if not in 2002. Has the Lion begun to roar again? Shall wait to see who is the last man standing in this sordid saga?

Finally if justice is what you seek, which is doubtful, then we would need to be convinced of your impartiality, the 26years long marathon being run to avoid the clutchs of law by Sajjan Kumar, Jagdish Tytler and Congress party must receive the undiluted attention that has been pointedly avoided by your saints and evangelists.

“FACE THE NATION” it is your turn.

This is in response to “Face the nation” by Rajdeep Sardesai 01st April 2010

Confession of a neo mullah of secularism! This is the day of confessions and damage control. All publications are carrying stories and articles backtracking from the rabid communalism that they have been practicing in the garb of secularism. What is the reason? That we are witness to this change of heart!

1. Mr. Modi’s appearance before SIT, breaking his silence after 8 long years.
2. Blog by Mr. Modi, his speech in the Gujarat assembly in Feb 2002 and all the appeals made by him on DoorDarshan which are now in public domain. The media had not mentioned this fact for last 8 years.
3. Refusal by Mr. Bachchan to join issue with congress and his maintaining a dignified silence in the face of extreme uncalled for provocation.
4. Realisation by the Congress that in the event of any SIT being established for past or future misdeeds it would not be able to avoid appearing before it.
5. Public outrage at the conduct of the Congress Party and mainstream English Media.

Manish Tiwari will no longer froth at the mouth on mere mentioning the names Bachchan or Modi. The public at large has delivered its message loud and clear pygmies cannot take on the colossus’ Bachchan and Modi. Watching news on TV might just have turned the corner, may become pleasurable once again. News might not get distorted into propaganda for a political party and its first family.

Now let us examine this self confessed secularist who has been preaching communalism for past 8 years, without facts or basis, he and his ilk have polarized the society with such speed and to an extreme that even most accomplished communalist has been wonderstruck and rendered unemployed.

Rajdeep Sardesai the people of this country including me want justice for 2002, just as we want justice for 1984,1993 and many other gory events before and after 2002 that make our stomachs churn. Your singular focus and freezing of Gujarat in a time machine dated 28th Feb 2002 is unacceptable. The outcry from the public is for even handed treatment, which you twisted to make it appear as pro or anti Modi. We are also witness to the 26years marathon being run by Sajjan Kumar, Jagdish Tytler and the Congress party to somehow avoid the clutches of the law. The 3000 innocent Indians who were killed on the streets of Delhi are entitled to justice and the media shall have to get equally active on that. Gujarat of 2002 has to be taken out of that deep freezer where you and other self confessed guardian of secularism have placed it. You not just targeted a state in India, a duly elected head of the State of Gujarat; you insulted the people of India who raised their voices against your biased and motivated reporting. Your lack of ethics in the vocation of your choice, partisan treatment, arrogance and inability to take onboard different viewpoints resulted in dropping of rating for your news channel. Today you stand discredited before the Indian public. Comparing your channel to BBC will not bestow any honor or respect.

You still have much more distance to travel, it is going to be a very hard lesson for you and your channel, this lesson will have to be learnt, the bitter pill will have to be swallowed or you shall be permanently rendered irrelevant in the industry of your choice. For far too long you have spewed venom at individuals not deserving this treatment. The victim hood that you allude to is a figment of your imagination. The 4th pillar of Indian democracy has been corrupted! Fresh steel needs to be infused so that they ensure that the governments perform in this country. Watch dogs of democracy cannot be transformed into pet poodles of the political party in power. Kangroo courts established by the congress cannot be manned by their publicists who masquerade as Media houses.

Rule of law shall prevail in this country! The final judgment shall be delivered by the duly constituted courts and not by another political party or the motivated media. Awards you may gather, nominations you may get, respectability as a professional you will have to earn, for that cannot be bestowed by the political party of your choice. In the final analysis it is us the public who will deliver the verdict on the credibility of the publication or the TV channel. Your hour of reckoning is here very apt heading “FACE THE NATION” it is your turn.

Day of confessions and damage control by Congress and the Media

This is in response to “It’s a two-way street” by Anil Dharkar 01st April Hindustan Times.

Two articles on the same day! This is a shift in tack from the Congress friendly media. Having reaped the whirlpool by sowing the winds!

The needless attack on the Bachchans, the over the top and shrill reporting on Modi's appearance or lack of it on the 21st March, left the media, the Congress party red faced and bloodied nose. The netizens made their emotions known to all and sundry what was acceptable and conversely what was deplorable and repugnant to them.

A hasty retreat! An equally pathetic attempt, at rehabilitating their political paymaster by Hindustan Times. Vir Sanghvi, Pankaj Vohra and Vinod Sharma have lost their credibilty in the eyes of the public, in comes Anil Dharkar and Rajdeep Sardesai. Sorry Mr Dharkar you are the looser in this attempt.

Sonia Gandhi is nothing more than the glue that binds the Congress party. You demean Indians by placing all the credit at her feet. "She did so from a sense of duty to save the Congress from the oblivion it was hurtling to under the ‘leadership’ of the likes of Sitaram Kesri and Arjun Singh, Sharad Pawar and N.D. Tiwari." this party without this glue will fragment into pieces that we will find difficult to count.

“The poor of India weren’t put off by her foreign identity because they saw that she had embraced an Indian one: in clothes, in deportment, in language and in family values.” Were sold a dummy by the congress friendly media the misuse of the name “Gandhi” As always fiction of a better tomorrow made it possible to win elections, the hard facts are before the poor of this nation, who have multiplied under the Congress Governments, the poor will deal the telling blow in the near future.

Please do ponder if People of Indian Origin living overseas crave and work for a better India and we very proudly claim that India lives in their hearts. Why is it not acceptable that the country of origin of the Congress president lives in that heart, why should we accept, that this is an exception to the same logic and rule. This is where the educated made the distinction and that is why the acceptance was not and is still not forthcoming.

The question that you must answer to all of us "Are we going to lead a life of perpetual indebtedness to the Nehru Clan?" Have we not already paid a heavy price for allowing this family to be the sole arbiters of the destiny of our country? Is Indian freedom struggle only about Nehru? Were there no other persons who sacrificed or participated in the struggle for attaining freedom? Lastly the most important question that we all must ask ourselves for how long will we hand out the top job of this country to this clan on compassionate grounds. Ignoring more deserving, and meritorious individuals! Congress is nothing but a family run enterprise similar to the regional parties where the top job is always held by it promoter. The only difference is that it is playing at the national level as against other being mostly restricted to their states.
