Do It For Your Country

I recommend you read “Burn down the mission” and “Crucifying India” before proceeding, if you haven’t already read those posts.

Almost every media house and pundit has been screaming these 2014 elections are different. There is no denying that. These elections are different, very very different. And what’s the big difference? The biggest difference is the phenomenal involvement of bigots parading as leaders of the Christian community in influencing the elections to stop Narendra Modi and ensure a continuance of the corrupt Congress in govt. This mafia is stretched from India to many parts across the world.

The latest bigot to issue a sort of “fatwa” to his students is none other than a guy called Frazer Mascarenhas, the principal of St. Xavier’s College, Mumbai. He sent an email to his students trashing the Gujarat model (which naturally refers to Modi) and asks them to embrace the failed schemes of Congress. Fine! This happens around the same time Rajdeep Sardesai is at the college campaigning. Fine! As soon as the email is out in the public other bigots like John Dayal and Cedric Prakash are quickly assembled on TV by news channels to back the first bigot. Fine! This is in addition to a video of Shazia Ilmi appealing to a Muslim group to be communal, which she explained as “word-play”. Fine!

George Bush, a devout Christian, said ““God wants everybody to free… and that’s part of my foreign policy”. So with bogus evidence of WMDs (weapons of mass destruction) against Iraq he declared war against that country in 2003. Bush assembled what the US called a “coalition of the willing” to attack Iraq and kill hundreds of thousands of innocent Iraqis. After conquering Iraq the US set up a Green Zone as the HQs of those running Iraq. Based on the farce of the WMDs a journalist of Indian origin, Rajiv Chandrashekharan wrote a book which became the basis for the movie Green Zone. It’s a story about how a WMD Chief Officer, Roy Miller, realises the whole thing was a farce and takes his own course of actions.  

During the course of investigations and action, Miller comes across an Iraqi informer called Freddy, who helps him and his team with quite a bit of information. Finding limited use for Freddy the team dumps him, after getting some information, to move on. It is at this point a confrontation happens and Miller discovers a few things and also learns a lesson or two. Let’s watch the video (1.27 mins):

In this confrontation, Miller discovers Freddy had lost his leg in the Iran-Iraq war of the 1980s. Freddy gives him a lecture worth remembering. Not everyone is in the game for money, rewards and awards. Even when Freddy is a victim of the illegal war by the US, he still wants the best for his country. Most of us are here because we love our country. The answer to the bigots who are pouring scorn on Narendra Modi mainly because he is a staunch Hindu nationalist deserve a similar answer.

That’s the biggest difference these elections. The Christian leaders who are bigots in the cloak of community leaders are pouring hate and scorn. This time it’s not just anti-nationals from within India but anti-India forces from across the world who are trying to desperately install their puppet govt. This time it’s an election to save India from these forces. This time make sure you vote and defeat these forces that have destroyed India in the last decade. This time do it for your country. That’s all I have to say in this one.

Crucifying India

(This is a MaxiPost)

The Closet Missionary:

In 2011 a US Homeland Security Committee started a series of hearings on radicalisation of American Muslims.  This committee was headed by US Congressman Peter King. I have no interest in commenting on the committee or its findings; that’s for the American people. But here’s a Congressman who testified with the committee in defence of American Muslims (video 2.11 mins):

Congressman Keith Ellison passionately and tearfully narrates the tale of a young American Muslim who died in the 9/11 disaster. He strains to explain how Mohammed Salman Hamdani, a 23-year old American-Muslim, died and was as much an American as anyone else. He tells us how Hamdani loved football and the Star Wars movies. There is nothing to dispute anything he said. Ellison bases most of his defence on the story of one youngster although I’m sure there are many such stories. What the video won’t tell you is that Ellison is the first Muslim Congressman in the US. I seldom use the term hypocritical and bigot together, but I would call Keith Ellison a hypocritical bigot. He’s a classic hypocritical Muslim. Let’s read some excerpts from a second article by David Cohen (the first one I referred in the post Saving Bhartayita):

With exquisite timing, Congressman Keith Ellison (D-Minnesota) is pushing a dishonest resolution that gratuitously insults the man who is the odds-on favorite to win that election. Ellison is teaming up with some Christian conservatives… who are, good intentions notwithstanding, picking the wrong battle against the wrong target… The focus of the congressmen’s ire is Narendra Modi, a free-market, anti-corruption reformer whom I have suggested might be India’s Ronald Reagan… House Resolution 417, co-sponsored and pushed by Ellison, is certainly a slur rather than a compliment—a slur against Modi and against India. It is a ham-fisted attempt to influence India’s election. While it will not succeed in doing that, it could certainly succeed in souring our relationship with what should be an important natural ally if passed. The resolution creates the impression that Christians are persecuted in India, but the primary example used to support that notion is fairly dated: a single outbreak of Christian-Hindu violence that occurred seven years ago (and had nothing to do with Modi)... However, a little perspective is in order: Of all the countries in the world where Christians are a minority, few are more hospitable to Christians than Hindu-majority India. That is why over 25 million Christians choose to live in India, almost 10 times the number in neighboring Pakistan. Given the large number of countries where besieged Christian minorities are in constant mortal danger, it shows a distinct lack of moral judgment to single out India for its supposed persecution of Christians”.

So, you see, Ellison’s heart bleeds for Muslims in America but he is willing to wrongfully accuse ONE individual in India of an imaginary threat of persecution of Christians. Because of a similar stupid question on what will happen to Christians I wrote the post “Burn down the mission” (borrowing the title from an Elton John song). This fake “persecution syndrome” is being peddled by American and Western Christian interests only because Modi has banned conversions in Gujarat. It threatens the illegitimate activities of Missionaries across India if he comes to power. That’s their fear. Ellison feeds those lobbyists in the US who have spent enormous time and money to revoke Modi’s visa to enter US. The entire exercise was based on falsehoods which the US Congressmen gladly bought and sold. Now that Modi may become PM these same vested interests want to spew hatred against him and India to try and influence Indian elections. So far, such activities in the US and Europe have received unofficial support from Sonia Gandhi’s Congress party. It seems evident to them that Modi will not brook the same level of foreign interference in Indian affairs.

What the Communist lobbies and the anti-Modi Muslims like Ellison do manage to do is that they will end up souring relations between India and the US. In any case, it is time India scaled down its relations with Western powers to cordial, need-based ones rather than support them in their selfish pursuits. It must also be recorded that on any given day American Presidents can be held responsible for crimes against humanity. Small states like Switzerland already have a warrant against George Bush. It won’t be hard to find a few hot-heads in a future Indian parliament to pass stupid resolutions like Ellison hopes to do. Hindus do not need lessons from the US or Europe on humanity, brotherhood or respect for religions. Also read: “Muslim Brotherhood Congressman Keith Ellison Introduces Bill BlamingHindus for Violence Which was Committed by Islamic Jihadists”.

The State Missionary:

Hillary Clinton is often referred to as “Shrillary” in the US; perhaps, for good reasons. Writing in the Sunday Guardian, M Nalapat (who is not known to blabber) writes a scathing report about how Hillary pursued a policy of “get Modi”. He reiterates that the US ban on Modi had little to do with the Gujarat 2002 riots. Most of us know that too. The US doesn’t give a damn about anyone being killed anywhere. The US has turned a blind eye to known genocides in Rwanda and other countries. Nalapat writes some shocking stuff:

"Hillary Clinton likes to operate through NGOs, which are given funding through indirect channels, and which target individuals and countries seen as less than respectful to her views on foreign and domestic policy in the target countries," a retired US official now based in Atlanta said. He claimed that "rather than US NGOs, (the former) Secretary of State Clinton favoured operating through organisations based in the Netherlands, Denmark and the Scandinavian countries, especially Norway" as these were outside the radar of big power politics. These NGOs were active in the agitation against the Russian nuclear power plant at Kudankulam in Tamil Nadu, with "funding coming mainly from a religious organisation based in Europe that has close links with France".

Considering what Nalapat writes, there are many other questions that need to be answered in the future. Are Christians in India under any threat or is it that the Christian missionaries and funders a threat to India? All evidence points to the latter. That apart, considering the funding of various activities are reportedly also from Netherlands and some other European countries India must investigate the funding of the anarchist and separatist-supporting AAP party. The funding of many anti-Modi NGOs (like those of Teesta and Harsh Mandar) will also come under scrutiny. There are already known frauds by these NGOs. Need more reasons why the crooks fear and are against Narendra Modi? The US govt is not going to come clean on any of its covert activities. If Clinton followed a “get-Modi” policy and hunted him along with criminals in India then this too needs to be taken up by the next Indian govt for appropriate retaliation. There is little doubt that the Sonia Gandhi govt supported all these activities. The US nancy-boys in the embassy at Delhi were prancing around high security zones at will with passes given by the Sonia govt. All these perks are probably rewards for hounding Modi. This can’t be allowed to pass.


The Caged Missionary:

The Supreme Court called his organisation a “Caged parrot” but Ranjit Sinha turns out be more than a parrot. He is allegedly the CBI head who also doubles up as a “caged missionary”. Sinha was in Rome recently it seems but he told the media he had met the Indian Ambassador to Italy and discussed issues pertaining to the Agusta Westland chopper scam. All the joyrides that our investigators have taken to Italy and other countries in Europe so far are a big sham. It always appears they make the trips to muddy the cases rather than solve any. But what was Sinha doing out there? Let’s read an interesting bit from this report by TheNewsMinute (TNM):

Unable to get any answers for the plea-bargaining deal, we conducted our own investigation and this is what we found. The conference on human trafficking was organized not by the London Police but by the Vatican. Titled “Church and Law Enforcement in Partnership, the conference held on 9-10 April 2014, had four aims: Prevention, Pastoral Care, Reintegration and Developing an International Network of Bishop’ Conferences and Law Enforcement agencies. TNM also found out that preparation for this meeting was underway or several weeks. On March 11, 2014, the head of London’s Metropolitan Police, Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe was confirmed as participating in the meeting which was chaired by Cardinal Vincent Nichols”.  

The plea-bargain referred in that excerpt relates to one Mr Haschke who is alleged to have distributed all the bribes in the chopper scam. He was, of course, allowed to comfortably fly out of India sometime last year if I remember correctly. If you read the full report of TNM it would be clear that the London Police was just a go-between. The actual conference was organised by the Vatican. And the programme is titled “Church and Law enforcement”? Heady stuff! TNM states:

During his speech, India’s top sleuth said many NGO on the ground were not connected and starved of funds that needed to be better channelized. “The CBI can be a nodal agency with the help of known experts in India and this agency can be the facilitating body for channelization of funds, if required.” How can the CBI channelise funds? Did Ranjit Sinha get any clearance before saying this? Sinha said an important initiative in preventing trafficking in the source area and in containing demand is involvement of religious priests. An Inter Religion Priest Forum (IRPF) was set up in several States in India like Bihar, Jharkhand. “These forums had religion priests from different communities and religions in India …IRPF has made tremendous impact in preventing and combating human trafficking,” said Sinha adding that this good practice could be replicated elsewhere in the world.

Given the international nature of the problem, Sinha said IRPF and AHTU could be institutionalized more robustly. “Congregation of religious priests from different communities and religions can be organized across the globe…It could generate a “Global March of Religious Priests against Human Trafficking.” Pope Francis addressed the 20-odd participants. “Human trafficking is an open wound on the body of contemporary society, a scourge upon the body of Christ. It is a crime against humanity,” he said.

Fantastic, isn’t it? How in the world is the CBI director making offers of Church-related deals for combatting human-trafficking? And why was he hiding all this information from the public if there was no hanky-panky? On whose instructions was he attending this conference? It’s not that the CBI director can’t attend some conference but why is it such a great secret that he didn’t release the information to the media when he spoke to them on his return? In a related report this is what TNM states:

The Vatican had asked India to sign an undertaking that they could work with missionaries and other religious groups and NGOs in India to combat human trafficking. “We are a secular country and we turned down this request,” Ranjit Sinha, Director CBI told The News Minute (TNM) today. “This was also conveyed to the Vatican through appropriate channels including the MEA,” India’s top sleuth said… Vatican Radio and news sources accessed by TNM clearly state that the initiative was the brainchild of the Bishop’s Conference of England and Wales… Sinha was unclear about the exact roles and responsibilities of Vatican, London Met Police and Interpol, but this document dated March 11, 2014 clearly states the meeting was organized by the Vatican… If Vatican’s request had been acceded to, religious groups from Europe and UK would have access to over 220 districts do conduct what the documents say includes “vulnerability mapping.”

Vulnerability mapping? Ha! Let me explain that bit. In the post “Burn down the mission” (link provided earlier in this post) I had shown a map of Joshua Project where they had marked in red dots the territories that need to be connected to Jesus. This could be a similar map of 220 districts where the missionaries would connect people to Jesus and help them avoid the grave danger of human trafficking. Quite nice, wouldn’t you say? Would the US, UK or Europe allow a project that is titled “The Hindu project to combat human trafficking”? Mr Ellison? Mrs Clinton? This is the nonsense that Narendra Modi threatens.


It is worthwhile to remember that none of these so-called “moral brigades” who are bigots in disguise have ever stood by India in any international issue or conflict. In each war that India faced, the US, UK and their allies have supported our enemies. Rajeev Srinivasan on Rediff explains the grand plans of America to somehow prevent BJP/Modi from coming to power. If that fails, engineer mass conflicts in India using AAP and destroy the fabric of India. Sonia Gandhi had a puppet in MMS. America wants a puppet in Delhi. The West is quite aware Modi won’t be a puppet. The question, therefore, is why should Christians feel threatened? They’ve never been persecuted in India. A stray communal riot does not amount to persecution anyway. The goal is the other way around. Break and crucify India. People should know the West all too well by now. Human rights, peace and all that is BS to them!

News Traders & Interviews

In recent times the one series that comes to my mind on tough-talking interviews is BBC’s “Hard Talk”, especially with its first presenter Tim Sebastian. He anchored the series for nearly seven years. Tim was skilful in asking the toughest questions without intimidating or screaming at his guests. When he didn’t get an answer he pushed the question further but never appeared bent on demanding the answer he “wanted to hear”. In addition, he had a good voice which added pleasantness to the hard questions he asked. In India some like Karan Thapar imitate Sebastian but KT comes out with a scowling face, growling voice and distinct unpleasantness. Others like Barkha Dutt, Arnab Goswami and Rajdeep Sardesai conduct interviews with a pre-set agenda which becomes very evident to the viewer apart from the fluffiness of their show. And if, by mistake, someone did give an interview to C5M Sagarika Ghose, I would have to categorise that person as a moron too. It is in this context that I have assessed some of the best interviews this election season to be of Narendra Modi by Rajat Sharma of IndiaTV, Sanjay Pugalia of CNBCAwaaz and Smita Prakash of ANI News.

To set the record straight, Rajat Sharma’s “Aap ki Adalat” is NOT a typical interview. It is more of an entertaining chat show. The Adalat does not, naturally, make any adverse pronouncements on the guest. Therefore, some media folks cribbing against Sharma’s show (calling it fixed, scripted etc) neither understand it, nor the context. Even Ajay Maken had to fall into the silly crowd and play the fool:

What made Sharma’s show a high-TRP hit is that watching Modi in any show itself is a pleasant experience for most people. He exudes hope, positivity and speaks the way only a man with tremendous commitment, wisdom and work-experience can. Only his opponents and detractors, who will rant even if Modi walks on water, will deny that. Thus, a Modi interview is now a bigger challenge to an interviewer as compared to interviewing some other politician. Even when Madhu Kishwar merely got a “conversational” recording of Modi which was aired on NewsX the typical green media-morons reacted stupidly. It wasn’t an interview by any measure but more like a documentary presenting the Modi-side of the story on 2002 and other issues. The reason for ridiculing that film is that idiots like Rajdeep, Barkha, Saba Naqvi (a frequent flyer on TimesNow) believe that Modi would have told a different story had they interviewed him. That’s how idiotic their bunch is. Modi uses the term “News Traders” for this sorry lot of losers who neither have any morals nor any journalistic principles. Let’s look at two of the recent interviews of political figures; one of Modi and the other of Raj Thackeray.

There may hardly be an interview where the interviewer doesn’t feel “I forgot to ask that question” or “I should have asked that question differently”. Some of it comes out of poor homework. While the overall interview was fair, here’s a quick look at the Smita Prakash (SP) interview and you’ll see how she goofs up on multiple issues (6.30 mins):

00.17 What’s your strategy against Kejriwal? That’s a lame question and maybe it wasn’t worded properly and it got a simple answer from Modi. I’m sure SP would want to think how she could have rephrased it.
00.30 SP says RahulG talks about women’s security and of Gujarat being an offender in that regard. Now, questions like “he said, she said” are dumb because political opponents mostly say stupid things about each other. It needs some data digging before posing such a quote. Naturally, Modi easily dismisses it with Congress having 7 among top 10 state govts where crimes against women are high.

01.45 Congress says Modi spends 10000 crores on marketing himself. This was the dumbest of the lot. It was dumb also because SP is quoting Congress again. Modi tells her not to pass off a Congress question as her own unless she believes what they say. The awful truth that comes out of this question is that media folks don’t really understand what can be marketed and what cannot. They also do not understand the difference between advertising and publicity. When a villager in UP talks about the “Gujarat Model”, it’s because some friends or family members have been telling him stories about Gujarat, through their transactions and experiences. You cannot market a bad product for sustained period of 4-5 years. The Gujarat story is being talked about for many years. “Experience” is felt and related to others. For instance, did it take Sanjaya Baru’s book for people to believe SoniaG was the backseat PM who was clearing files? Most people knew MMS was a puppet without any book or document. They see it, they hear it and they sense it.
05.25 This is not only dumb but even alarming. SP says many feel the High Court may not accept the SIT report that has been accepted by the lower court. After the same SIT report SC did not find any merit to intervene. How on earth did SP or anyone derive or conclude HC may not accept the SIT findings? Such moronic speculation is passed off as a question. Modi went past it but it actually deserved a spanking.

In general, I think SP was overawed with getting a chance, probably unexpected, to interview Modi. She asked him if media would be under threat if he became PM and he explains no editor or reporter has ever been thrown out of Gujarat in 14 years of his CMship. Also, it’s the media darling Kejriwal who has held out such threats. Ironically, SP happens to be a “news trader” and I say that in a good sense. As far as I know, ANI News, of which she is an editor, does not run a channel of its own but feeds news videos to news channels. Their basic business is selling news to news outlets. Maybe she lacks the experience of interviewing top leaders but in the overall context she did a good job. But what one would really like to see is questions on how Modi will deal with important issues; say, like the Naxal problem. A question that asks him to outline in 2-3 points how he will turn around the economy, create jobs and so on. Instead, it is more of the same “he said, she said” type of interviews that the media sells. The other interview of the week simply has to be the worst of the year. Here’s Rajdeep with Raj Thackeray (6.12 mins):

Rajdeep’s interview with RajT came on the back of one already done by Arnab Goswami. Right from the start till the end Rajdeep’s questions are a bundle of absolute BS. Poor body language, arrogantly waving hands and fingers at the guest, jumping out of the seat often are all signs of a moron who has forgotten his job. Not just that, Rajdeep believes RajT is a joker who is just to be ridiculed unlike SoniaG who he worships. I am no fan of either of the Senas but once you have a guest as an interviewer you treat him or her with a certain amount of respect. I have called Rajdeep the “Father of media-filth” and he gives us proof again.

00.15 Rajdeep keeps asking if RajT’s objective is to defeat SS or to help Modi become a PM. Even after RajT says he wants to help Modi become PM Rajdeep keeps trolling him. RajT’s answer isn’t wrong. He says clearly backs Modi and not BJP. It is morons like Rajdeep who don’t get it that RajT may not have backed someone else from BJP in the same manner. Rajdeep keeps repeating “Modi and BJP” are the same. They are in the same party but they are not the same candidate. Clearly, Modi gets a backing that others like Rajnath or Advani may not have received from RajT. It seems this doesn’t go through the head of Rajdeep.
02.10 Rajdeep tells him “log kehte hai”, people say “Raj bhokta hai” (“Barks”). Now what kind of extreme moron would use language like that with his guest? Only a third-rate filth from the lowest gutter would do that. And Rajdeep says “log kehte hai”. Well “log” also say Rajdeep is corrupt, he is a Dalal and got his 52-crore bungalow by corruption. Oh wait, that’s not just “log”, it was one of his ex-employee who said that.

02.32 RajT is absolutely right when he points out Rajdeep had built his own ‘political party’ AAP, which flopped in 49 days. Everyone knows that! “Log” kehte hai Rajdeep was and is a pimp for the AAP party. He was the one who awarded an IOTY to Arvind Kejriwal. His channel was the one who gave maximum air time to AAP. So while pimping for AAP Rajdeep thinks he has the moral authority to question the future of RajT’s party. Naturally, RajT cut him to his pygmy size and put him place for his political pimping.
03.06 On reporting only violence from MNS and not Assam violence against Biharis, Rajdeep is so bamboozled it is simply unbelievable. The moron blurts out “Listen to my double standards”. That is how drunk he is and unaware of what he is uttering.
03.31 Rajdeep says “log kehte hai” RajT is a nautanki and dramabaaz. There isn’t much to say for this except that Rajdeep has nurtured the biggest nautankis in the media; Kejriwal and the Category5Moron Sagarika. Both are ingredients of the nautanki of CNN-IBN. I think Sonia’s poodle already knows this. “Log kehte” hai Rajdeep is a “bika hua news trader”. I don’t think many will disagree.

Those were the two contrasting interviews of the past week. Clearly, the interviewer looks better with Modi because he calmly answers questions. The corrupt news traders like Rajdeep and Sagarika were earlier screaming “Modi doesn’t take questions”. Now they are mourning Modi is doing a media blitzkrieg. They have reached a “saturation” point as mentioned in the interview. Rajdeep and his ilk are stuck in 2002 and their brain died that year. The extra-ordinary claim that Rajdeep makes in his interview is he is not a public figure. That should explain his irresponsible behaviour throughout his TV career. When the editor of a TV channel believes he is not a “public figure” you know he has thrown out accountability and responsibility long back. That one single claim by Rajdeep explains who is a “news trader” and who is a real interviewer or journalist.
