Couple of days back, few journalists marched to Patiala House Court against those lawyers who attacked the JNUSU President Kanhaiya Kumar before he could even reach Court. NDTV Journalist, Ravish Kumar in an interview said that this incident was “against the freedom of Speech”.
A few months back Hindu Mahasabha leader Kamlesh Tiwari made a controversial statement on Prophet Mohammad over homosexuality. This derogatory remark by Kamlesh Tiwari came as a reaction to UP Cabinet Minister Azam Khan’s statement which was similar to that made on Prophet Mohammad. Over 1 lakh muslims demanded death for Kamlesh Tiwari.
So our question to Mr. Ravish Kumar is Why chanting Pro-Pak slogans a freedom of speech but saying something about a specific community may lead to riots?? Why such double standards MR. Ravish Kumar??
Another question for Ravish Kumar is If NDTV is NOT biased, then why NDTV not showing even a single coverage on Malda Riots where the Muslim group in Malda district of West Bengal violently reacted to Kamlesh Tiwari’s comment on Prophet Mohammad, police force were attacked,a police station was vandalized and over 2 dozen police vehicles and buses were set ablaze by the muslim mob.
Is Malda not a part of India?? Or NDTV didn’t broadcast it because Hindus were not responsible for the vandalism in Malda?NDTV did a live coverage of 2008 Mumbai attacks, gave real time information about Indian Army’s next move, which now we are forced to think was a strategy to help their godfather sitting on the other side of the border.
And if we oppose the JNU students for chanting anti-national and pro-pak slogans we are labeled as Bakht or Sanghi by the presstitutes. We live in a country where the media believes that chanting slogans like “Bharat tere tukde honge Inshaallah Inshallah, Kashmir ki azaadi tak Jung chalegi” makes you liberal and opposing them makes you a communal bigot.
These anti-national elements are not raising such slogans for the first time in India. Students of JNU and other universities in Delhi held a protest march in Jantar Mantar the day Afzal Guru, the parliament attack convict, was hanged on Feb9, 2013. JNU has held events ever since the death of Afzal Guru on his death anniversary but all these events never received the kind of attention it is getting today and all this is happening just to battle it out with NaMo govt. over freedom of expression.
Couple of days back, IB (Intelligence Bureau) released a statement that Umar Khalid has got connections with some Kashmiri separatists and might have some links with JeM (Jaish e Mohammad). He has been to Pakistan few times before as well just to discuss how to raise Kashmir issue and chant anti-national slogans to let the current government down.
And if JNU students were only protesting against the hanging of Afzal Guru, my question as a normal citizen, why protest against the hanging of Afzal Guru in the first place?Why question the death penalty of a terrorist who played a central role in the attack on the Indian parliament in 2001? Why hold events against his hanging because of whom nine innocent people were killed?? WHY???
