Modi,media and the Congress’ myopic vision

Modi, Media and the Congress’ myopic vision.

The Supreme Court has not indicted Modi and his government in the Gulbarg Society case-The SC refused to pass any order on Modi’s involvement in the 2002 riots.The SC has referred the case to the trial court saying that it need not monitor the case any longer and has directed the Special Investigation Team to file a final report with the magistrate court concerned, which will henceforth deal with the findings as per law.This has given a chance for Modi bashers-the Congress the Left parties and the NGOs to do what they are accustomed to do.Even though the SC has not indicted Modi and does not find his involvement in the Gulbarg case the Congress ,the Left and Teesta find Modi accused and want him convicted. The media has also lapped up their views because as far as Modi is concerned the media has always been anti-Modi.Hence it puts Modi on trial. If the TOI splashes ‘SC breather, Modi exhales’ Ram Jethmalini demolishes it by stating that ‘Narendra Modi can’t get a breather because he was never suffocated. There was never any evidence against him. It is a vindication of his innocence’. The media also whips up passions and polarizes opinions when it brings in at this juncture the idea of Modi as prospective PM candidate. Even Modi may not have given a thought to it. He is full of Gujarat and its development. May be his admirers had on various occasions articulated such a proposition. Only goes to show the stuff he is made of.It speaks of his caliber as an able administrator, as a dedicated CM, as one who spares no effort and stands out as a non-corrupt and incorruptible person.
The media goes further to analyze who are Modi supporters-who are the fence sitters and who are wary of Modi in the BJP.This kind of uncalled for expose will not be done say in the case of Rahul Gandhi, who is projected as the crown prince. Will the media tell us who his supporters are in the Congress-who are the fence sitters and who are wary of RG? The media has a very crucial role to play in a democracy it must play fair-project the truth and nothing but the truth. It cannot play politics .So what is apparent is that the media is terribly biased against Modi

According to Abhishek Manu Singhvi the SC has not given Modi a clean chit-it has left everything open for the magistrate to look into all aspects. And Salman Kurshid wants us to believe that the BJP is privy to court documents and hence is claiming Modi to be innocent. So one has to believe by these utterances that the SC did not look into the case at all and has simply referred the case to the trial court. The media of course uses this as an opportunity to put Modi on trial. No body thinks that the whole case is sub-judice and hence apart from giving out the SC’s verdict they cannot discuss it thread bare and give their own judgements. The Congress spokespersons in other cases like the CWG scam-the Adharsh scam the 2-G spectrum scam et al excused themselves from commenting because these are sub-judice. But in Modi’s case they are ready to pronounce him guilty as the media runs the trial.The bias is so obvious. What is the reason-just vote bank politics.

It was not long ago that P.Chidambaram appealed to the Sikh community to put the massacre of the Sikhs at rest and to move forward.This when 100 times more persons of the minority community were massacred-brutalized, raped and killed. Time to move on was his appeal. But when it comes to the Gujarat riots it has to be fixed at that riot incident-Time and again it has been used against Modi. Come elections the NGOs canvass with the C Ds of the riots-the wailing and the weeping of the victims and their relatives must be kept ever fresh. Why this double standard? Did the Congress leaders not lead the massacre brigade and supervise the killings of the Sikhs? Did not the Delhi government abet it by silently watching the burning and the killings? Did not Rajiv Gandhi justify this? So what moral right has the Congress to fault Modi and his government,. It must be also noted that this is not the first time Gujarat witnessed riots-not only Gujarat but all over India there have been any number of riots. No one person has been maligned as Modi as been

Vote bank politics has marred every single perception and action of the UPA government. There have been 7 attacks since 2010 after P.Chidambaram became the Home Minister. The Sept 7th bomb blast at gate 5 of the Delhi High court is the 8th attack. This left 13 dead and 88 injured. PC has suddenly become color blind. He who was so obsessed with ‘saffron’ terror suddenly finds just these as terror attacks and is quick also in his briefing to Parliament to caution the country of Naxal terror. No lessons learned. The issue before him is Islamic terror and he is afraid even to term it so. It becomes just terror. And our PM joins in the chorus to mouth hollow words that the perpetrators would be punished. In which terror attack has the perpetrators been punished may be know. So why mouth such promises?

Rahul Gandhi goes to visit the victims of the Sept High court bomb blast at the RML hospital. He has forgotten to think because he had earlier stated after his famous draft reading in Parliament that he took so long to react to the LokPal bill because he had to think. Well one does not know if to read a draft one has to put the thinking cap and take such a long period of thinking. When he visited the hospital he did not utter a single word. Either he forgot to put his thinking cap or there were no draft writers by his side. Can this crown prince not spontaneously offer a few words of comfort and listen to the anguish of the grieving victims. And we are promised that this youth icon will bring in much desired change

This brings up corruption. The Congress advises the rest not to politicize corruption. The same song it sings for every issue ‘Don’t politicize terror attacks’-‘don’t politicize corruption is the litany the Congress leaders chorus. But there is politics in corruption. It is the vested interest of the politicians that gave birth to corruption. It is the greed for power that makes the politicians abet corruption and it is the attraction to status and power that makes the politicians to sell his/her conscience and become corruption. In the process corrupt others too. And as long as the Congress is the mother head of corruption one cannot expect the Congress to fight corruption. It is now blatantly stated in the emails which are circulated that “Mrs Sonia Gandhi the most powerful woman is the most corrupt”. It is not just only one person nay the family too. No wonder it is also said that it took 100 years for Tata to become a billionaire, it took 50 years for Ambani to become a billionaire but it has taken only ten years for Robert Vadra to become a billionaire. From where does this money for chartered planes-treatment in the USA-special facility apartment there et al and lavish spending come from? So it is understandable when one is so filthy rich that Mrs Priyanka Vadra can toss her head and order her two storied house in Himachal Pradesh to be razed to the ground. A new site to be bought and new house to be build. A house in which crores and crores would have been spent is just to be demolished because it did not suit the environment and her fancy. All this after she had been supervising and instructing while the construction was on. Did she not know what materials were used for it? This I narrate only as an example of the arrogance of money power. No second thoughts .We see children by the seaside kick the sand castles and built new ones according to their whims. The same kind of attitude and mindset was displayed by Mrs Vadra which is a dangerous streak and exhibits a disdain for loss of money and labor. The mention of this is also meant to prove that Rahul Gandhi’s multi prong strategy to fight corruption is a farce and mere rhetoric. He has to clean up his own household first.

We had Chidambaram the other day stating that communalizing violence is dangerous. We are no fools and we know what made PC make such a statement. This government will not fight terrorism because it will not embarrass the Muslims. This is clear in it bringing up the Communal violence bill which just will not fight communalism but abets communalism. First the National Advisory Council had no business to draft such a bill.The NAC which is an unconstitutional body acts as a super cabinet and a mini Parliament. This was meant to give a cabinet ranking to Mrs Sonia and legitimize her face in all the GOI advertisements. Second it has also all Modi bashers and baiters as members. It has a hidden agenda and is biased .Hence the communal violence bill is pro minority and anti majority. How can it fight communalism when the very premise of it abets communalism?

Dr Mrs Hilda Raja,

    What is beyond my understanding is the prominece and deference accorded to an ever-screaming Teesta Setalvad.
    Yesterday one anchor actually said, Teesta had to leave half-way while making her point: other channels were eager to have her breaking news.
    ‘She was dragged away.’
    I hope they do.

    • 2. Hilda Raja  |  September 13, 2011 at 7:41 am

      Dakul I too cannot stand that Teesta but you must remember the huge sums of money that is pouring into her NGO.She is not only big mouthed but also nasty and utters all lies.
      Thank you Dakul

    Thanks again for this article. It’ll be pertinent to read the following articles (the second one is from the Times of india)
    NGOs, Teesta spiced up Gujarat riot incidents: SIT
    Dhananjay Mahapatra, TNN Apr 14, 2009, 12.13pm IST
    NEW DELHI: The Special Investigation Team responsible for the arrests of those accused in Gujarat riots has severely censured NGOs and social activist Teesta Setalvad who campaigned for the riot victims.

    In a significant development, the SIT led by former CBI director R K Raghavan told the Supreme Court on Monday that the celebrated rights activist cooked up macabre tales of wanton killings.

    Many incidents of killings and violence were cooked up, false charges were levelled against then police chief P C Pandey and false witnesses were tutored to give evidence about imaginary incidents, the SIT said in a report submitted before a Bench comprising Justices Arijit Pasayat, P Sathasivam and Aftab Alam.

    NEW DELHI: The Special Investigation Team responsible for the arrests of those accused in Gujarat riots has severely censured NGOs and social activist Teesta Setalvad who campaigned for the riot victims.
    In a significant development, the SIT led by former CBI director R K Raghavan told the Supreme Court on Monday that the celebrated rights activist cooked up macabre tales of wanton killings.
    Many incidents of killings and violence were cooked up, false charges were levelled against then police chief P C Pandey and false witnesses were tutored to give evidence about imaginary incidents, the SIT said in a report submitted before a Bench comprising Justices Arijit Pasayat, P Sathasivam and Aftab Alam.
    The SIT said it had been alleged in the Gulbarg Society case that Pandey, instead of taking measures to protect people facing the wrath of rioteers, was helping the mob. The truth was that he was helping with hospitalisation of riot victims and making arrangements for police bandobast, Gujarat counsel, senior advocate Mukul Rohtagi, said quoting from the SIT report.
    Rohtagi also said that 22 witnesses, who had submitted identical affidavits before various courts relating to riot incidents, were questioned by the SIT which found that they had been tutored and handed over the affidavits by Setalvad and that they had not actually witnessed the riot incidents.
    The SIT also found no truth in the following incidents widely publicised by the NGOs:
    * A pregnant Muslim woman Kausar Banu was gangraped by a mob, who then gouged out the foetus with sharp weapons
    * Dumping of dead bodies into a well by rioteers at Naroda Patiya
    * Police botching up investigation into the killing of British nationals, who were on a visit to Gujarat and unfortunately got caught in the riots
    Rohtagi said: “On a reading of the report, it is clear that horrendous allegations made by the NGOs were false. Stereotyped affidavits were supplied by a social activist and the allegations made in them were found untrue.”
    Obviously happy with the fresh findings of the SIT which was responsible for the recent arrests of former Gujarat minister Maya Kodanani and VHP leader Jaideep Patel, Rohtagi tried to spruce up the image of the Modi administration, which was castigated in the Best Bakery case by the apex court as “modern day Neros”. He was swiftly told by the Bench that but for the SIT, many more accused, who are freshly added, would not have been brought to book.
    The crooks like AM Singhvi, Teesta Setalvad, etc., will succeed only as long as the so called “secular” English media continue to obfuscate truth.
    We should keep our vigilance.

      Thank you I did read the articles in the TOI.At times listening to the lies and falsehoods I wonder if God is really watching and listening too.Should HE not punish them.Truth is God and these people are disfiguring that Truth.Let us do what best we can in our own humble way to affirm the truth.That’s my mission.When I was living in Chennai I had got threat letters!.All the best to you.

  • 10. Dharmic Techie (@DharmicTechie)  |  September 13, 2011 at 12:50 pm

    excellent article madam.

    btw she should be called Teesta Aatankvad 😉 why can’t we give this ‘Teesta’ to bangladesh instead 😛

    • 11. Hilda Raja  |  September 13, 2011 at 1:26 pm

      Dear Dharmic-it is a good suggestion.When I read about the sharing of Teesta waters I too thought of the same-we can give her whole not just share.The money that comes pouring into her NGO makes her really a terrible person who will not give up her fighting with lies and falsehoods.She stands to benefit-after all the lucre is very alluring.Thank you for your response.

  • 12. Rashmi  |  September 13, 2011 at 1:18 pm

    • 15. Hilda Raja  |  September 14, 2011 at 2:17 am

      Dear RajTupil,
      Thank you for your appreciation..I would sincerely request you to do your mite-it may be in spreading awareness-in circulating articles,in talking to people and I do not know your background in plunging into politics directly.Or joining a movement like Anna’s-whatever it be please contribute your mite.This land of ours need people with sanity.Do not ask what the country can do for you-ask what you can do for your country.A second line leadership must emerge.And Hindu vote bank must be consolidated..It is only vote bank which will bring sense to the avarice filled politicians..All the best to you.Tupil

  • 16. Hemanth  |  September 13, 2011 at 3:56 pm

    Really, a thought provoking article.
    Thank you Madam for such an article. Really India needs a leader like Modi who can convert Bharata in to a Super Power. Gujarat is the best example before us.

    • 17. Hilda Raja  |  September 14, 2011 at 2:20 am

      I agree with you Hemanth.But see how Modiji is being harassed and persecuted.Silent prayers alone will not do-lets offer what ever we can in some form of direct involvement.Even activism with the use age of internet because it will spread the message.Recruit pro-Modi people-discuss with your friends and may be immediately we can join him in his fast for three days which starts on the 17th.India needs leaders like Modiji.May your wish and mine come true..Thank you and all the best to you.

    A well known saying from “Yaksha Prasna” where Dharmaputra answers (Ask me and I will answer as best as I can).
    He says ‘Satyam bruyat, mitham bruyath’, in other words, truth to be spoken in moderation.
    Truth doesn’t have to shriek, ‘tyagaya sambrutharthanam satyaya mitha bhashinam’ says Kalidasa while decribing Raghu’ s lineage.
    They earned so that they could give away..

    • 19. P. Venkat  |  September 14, 2011 at 1:35 pm

      Yes You are right. But you must have noticed that for the past ten years falsehoods have been spread and they were screaming and shrieking

      • 20. Hilda Raja  |  September 15, 2011 at 5:25 am

        Dear Venkat,
        Screaming and shrieking will not produce truth.Lets wait and watch [patiently-truth will ultimately win and win it must.All the best to you

    • 21. Hilda Raja  |  September 15, 2011 at 5:23 am

      quite true Dakul.I learn many things from you.Thank you.

  • 22. Ram  |  September 14, 2011 at 6:58 am

    Dear Madam,

    An excellent and apt analysis. You have put Majority of Indians’ thought in your post. May God bless you. If you find time, please read these posts also.


  • 23. vikramchawla  |  September 16, 2011 at 2:50 pm

    Dear Madam,

    Thank you for your excellent articles. Godhra verdict was delivered in 2011 February, March. Did you write any articles about that? Did you write any articles on Godhra riots ever since they happened in 2002? I was searching the archives of for articles on Godhra, but I could not find any, except for passing references in 1 or 2 articles. As I am finding it difficult to do an elaborate search in the archives, I request you to provide a list of articles written by you on Godhra riots and verdict, since 2002 till date. Please provide the title of the articles as well as the year and date of writing each of those articles, so that it will be easy for me to search them. I am sorry I am troubling you. I want to have a thorugh understanding of Godhra riots and verdict and I know your articles would be very enlightening.

    Thank you very much.

    I can’t begin to tell you how frustrating it was, over the years unable to complain about the glass-shattering screams on TV. However I had an Acharya who narrated the familiar story of crocodile and the elephant. Unlike popular perception, the tussle, he said, when on for years. Told me to check Gajendra’s prayer on Bhagavatham. Now I am not versed in Sanskrit and any wisdom you may find has come down owing to his kindness.
    He also said we had to have a sense of social resposibility even though nothintangible comes out of it.

    This one is from Swamy39@ Twitter

    Dear Madam.

    I am new here but would like to say that there is this comprehensive website that has a lot of details on the actual days of the riots.A site that many are not aware of so just pointing it out here.

    It is also said that Mr Modi had requested for additional force from neighbouring states but that was turned down.Incidently those were congress ruled states at that time.

    Thank you.
