Rahul Gandhi – Sukanya Case: Amazing Media Silence

You don’t need great imagination to wonder what the media would have done if any other politician, especially from the Opposition, was allegedly involved in a rape incident. Yes, they would have fallen over each other in ‘Breaking News’ and the story would have been headlines for 10 or even more days. So why is there a complete silence on the issue of Rahul Gandhi being allegedly involved in a some incident concerning a woman named Sukanya? The story is not new to many who have followed such reports on the net but now there is a court in Allahabad which has initiated some action in this strange and secretive case.

This from the Economic Times online on March 1: The Lucknow Bench of Allahabad High Court today issued notice to AICC general secretary Rahul Gandhi on a petition alleging that a girl and her parents were illegally detained by him since 2007. Justice Shri Narayan Shukla passed the order, seeking Gandhi's reply, on a habeas corpus petition filed by Kishore Samrite, a former Samajwadi Party MLA from Madhya Pradesh, on behalf of Sukanya Devi, her father Balram Singh and mother Sumitra Devi. The petition alleged that the petitioners -- Sukanya Devi and her parents -- were in illegal detention of Rahul Gandhi since January 4, 2007. It has sought direction to command the Congress leader to produce the girl and her parents before the court and set them at liberty.

The petition doesn’t refer to rape but it refers to something just as sinister. ‘Illegal detention’! Now why would a court accept such a petition? We all know there many trigger happy petitioners wanting to file all kinds of cases against prominent people in society. This, however, is something that has been dragging since January 2007. The first story about the alleged case was carried by Hinduunity.Org on a website and this was followed by a supposed legal notice for defamation by Rahul’s lawyers. Intellibriefs still carries that story.

Has the media played judge, jury and defendant and decided there is nothing in the case to report about? One can understand that. It is safe to assume that if there is truth in these allegations and the court gets into the process fully then it may well be the end of Rahul Gandhi. Now, that is what would hurt the media. An entire media industry, with the exception of some outfits, built around its servantile relationship with the Congress (I) would be doomed if these reports were proven to be true. And if indeed Sukanya and her family do exist, where are they? Why will nobody in the mainstream media even dare to talk about the whereabouts of this family?

This can no more be treated as a rumour or malicious campaign by someone, although it may well have started out as one. And it is time Rahul Gandhi spoke out and made a statement himself. Silence will only fuel more suspicions. Now that a court is involved the media silence once again proves how corrupt and crooked our mainstream media is. I can only repeat what I’ve said before. In this tech-age you have no place to hide. Neither Rahul Gandhi nor a crony media. If there is actually someone called Sukanya it may do well for both Rahul Gandhi and the media that she and her family be traced.

  1. It is amazing that despite the affair in question is a grist in the critics' mill no media dared to highlight the court direction. Are they of the view that the breaking news repeatedly then ads and so on will not work out if pertained to Gandhi nehru clan?

    If this is the case of either Modi or Advani they same crafty media would have been beating the bush on umpteen times a day and created sensational.What is imperative is that it has become a scarce for a media with spine, Or moneyed or those with patronage of aam and aadhmies drawing 80,000 pm but eat subsidized food in parliament house in IRR canteen foot by egalitarian common is above law? They can do any crime without impunity and the fourth pillar of the so called democracy too will go connived?

  2. Rahul Gandhi is a 'Desh putra", whatever it means. No one wants to touch him including the opposition. There in lies the secret. Why the BJP, Communits and other parties are observing a silence? God knows.

    May be they nethas are paid off to observe silence. But then what about Media crooksie our channel TVs.

  4. why is opposition playing silence not only in this but all the recent issue.

    there are so much of material the party like bjp can make good use of, but all they are involved in are useless antics.

    and some media will do help bjp in the process. but why are they behaving sissy is beyond my belief.

    this is interesting.

  5. I wish to know, how authentic the girl's photo is? as the family of Sukanya, goes missing, but the same news of videos, photos and wordings are repeated. What is the source for photo, address, story and other details ? the story narrates, they approached president, sonia, etc., but who provided the information of all these incidents to whom and how these are spread is a question mark? Thats the reason, media, opposition parties are mum on this matter..

  6. I am surprised to read this blog!! Though I actually try to get all the information , but I missed it. As a part of media, I just wants to say, that it is true to the some extend that media now a days lost its relevancy, and became a lapdog of the every kind of power, but there has exception also. We should not loose the faith on Media, may the number is less, but still they exists.

  12. It is amazing that the girl was produced in court and she confessed nothing of that sort happened. The court slammed a fine of 25 lacs to the litigant. under this circumstance, I also opined that had it not be a fact that the allegations were true how could she have been produced at the dictum of the court and that fact I mailed to the author too for his hot mail. Hence, no merit on beating the bush

  13. This allegation is baseless, has no autencity, the picture is so made up and looks like some sex worker, with red lipstick. This is a well planned consipracy to defame the potentials of the forthcoming PM- Rahul Gandhi.moroever, he's been fighting for the vicitmized women.

    wonder if and when these guys will have guts to write about the mystery behind Sonia's undisclosed illness and her disappearance during most crucial period in India. can they pressurise their favorite govt to release swiss bank acct holder's name?How about writing abt Amar Singh's buyers of votes?
    I bet not. it takes guts to expose or even write about the biggeset corrupt in the country and very easy to target much less powerful people like Kiran Bedi and team Anna who dont have wealth and power to buy the seculars.

  16. Media's silence in this case is a real shock...... The TV channels nowadays flashes all kind of nonsensically made up stories like "SWARG KA RASTA"; "ALIEN'S ATTACK" and so on.... and choose to ignore the issues that deserve people's attention.

    And I thought media has some REAL POWER ......

    kindly visit the website to know the truth. I know no one will be willing to extend any benefit of doubt to rahul gandhi as it is now considered patriotic to bash the nehru gandhi family. A new fab i must say. nevertheless at the risk of sounding very un-patriotic and follower of a dynasty. i would like to post it and i would urge anyone who has even little sense to at least look up the net before accepting the things on face value. I mean u need to do this only if u really care about the thing, If u want to follow a fashion of being a pseudo patriotic then close ur eyes and believe anything that is shelled out to u..... ur opinion doesn't matter anyway

  22. Its heart wrenching to see what has happened to the media of today. I came across this news today, and was astounded. Such injustice and negligence on the part of everyone, the opposition and the media, is absolutely horrifying. How can then we feel safe if nobody, not even the god-damned news channels don't report the bloody truths???
    last year, I was shocked to see how our media handled the Baba Ramdev's outcry and it's aftermath, trying to shove dirt on his image. It is amazing to see in a country of such glorious freedom fighters, the advent of whom hasn't even passed a century, that helping our own countrymen and trying to bring out the truth costs one more than he can imagine. I feel absolutely ashamed today.

  24. 1) How much can we rely upon these blogs? who would check the credibility of the same...
    2) Being from the media industry myself i am totally aware about how power politics play in the media.. however all the news that goes through is always supported by documentary evidence. The same is not true with blogs..... this news surely has a wide chance of being true... but it will be believed only if it supported by some documentary evidence...
    3) Blogs are read by very few.. thus reach of such information is generally limited than other forms of media...
    4) Further, such news matters a lot in the decisions the voters make, thus it is imperative that it reaches the masses.Therefore we as citizens should come ahead and give something that is concrete enough so that the mainstream media is forced to take this up seriously. If the blogger is genuine, it is his duty to substantiate this information with documentary evidence

  33. Thanks Ravi for bringing this issue on your popular Blog.

    Today, Social Media has just not slapped Rahul Gandhi but all those politicians who are involved in wrong doing.

    I am very pleased and hopping, all Patriots will keep expressing their view and concerns through social media until the whole rotten Dynasty will not collapse completely.

    Moreover, this battle is not Congress vs BJP but it's leading towards Truth vs falsehood, hallowed vs Corruption and therefore BJP corruption brigade (Top brass) are also likely face significant resistance from patriots.

    As Congress is now going, we all should be more careful and vigilant.

  35. Realy the case is strange & wonderfull as bco's it is directly related to Big One mr,Rhul Gandhi's unlawfull and heinus act of chrime of raping Sukanya devi not by himself bt,along with his other fgn friends,just like monark of the area concerned as were done in mohamdn regiem in old indian histry.The victim and their parrents are undergrounded by whom ,the both State &Central govts remains calm & helpless to search out them.it is also strenge,to understand .Things arae manuplately ,caerelessly,and kneen wested interested put before court and honble court have acted accordingly fining the petitioner on that basis only,now honble court may re-investigate thoroughly on facts ,and may punish the culprits who have committed such heinus chrime ,who may be any or any higher position.
    The culprit named ,such things are generally hapening in his family since inception,as per their histrcal datasconcerned.

  37. If Asaram Bapu is guilty then he should be punished as per the laws of the land. The biggest mistake he did was that he did not present himself for questioning at the earliest. But the way Media is targeting him and calling him a rapist, fraudster, molester and is using all kinds of abusive language repeatedly is simply deplorable. Media is crossing its limit. Who has given the media the right to malign someone’s character before one is pronounced guilty by the court of India. Is it a larger picture to malign Hindu community? A malicious campaign against Ramdev Baba was launched few years back and he was also branded as a fraudster but nothing came out in spite of the might of the government and the media. The kind of language being used by some of the prominent journalists especially in the electronic media is simply distasteful. If by a mere allegation of a girl one become a rapist then the future of all males in India is in deep danger. Remember Rahul Gandhi was also falsely accused of rape and later he was absolved by the court.

    1. Day before Yesterday,At mangalore A Muslim MOULVI(TEACHER) at Madrasa raped a 2nd standard girl and has got arrested. Three days back, An IMAM(priest of the mosque) at Muzzaffarnagar, has got arrested for abducting and raping a 11year old girl (Both Ref:TOI newspaper).These above mentioned rapist-criminals might have even been bailed out immediately which is of no wonder in India and the reasons are also very obvious! (news about Bail has not been mentioned in subsequent days' newspaper). Why hasnt any media even made any mention about it on news channels inspite of these arrests being done with proven clear rape-evidences and records, whereas the same media channels can talk hours together on Asharam's case through-out the day which is yet to be even completely investigated! Will they apologise for the loss of his honour or defamation in case he is proved guilty?Why is the so called MEDIA quiet in other above-mentioned issues?! In case of Kanchi swamiji's case also media hyped up the things so badly projecting and defaming the guru's name and when he was proven innocent after SC's order , no media even gave a word of apology! Who has given the rights for media to brutally defame anybody's name?!!(that saraswathi-theertha swamiji being a great spiritual leader for millions of devotees). SHOULD ANYONE EVEN RELY ON THIS MEDIA ANYMORE WHO DOES SO MUCH OF DISCRIMINATION AMONG COMMUNITIES!!DOES IT EVEN DARE QUESTIONING OTHER RELIGIOUS PARTIES EVEN WHEN PROVED GUILTY (as in above-mentioned cases)?! Is law "selective" only for a particular community? We always wonder why is ONLY HINDU community targeted and projected, while the rest all are "selectively" protected! What are the criminal intentions behind these acts by the media, police, law and the govt? Is Hindu community really on the verge of turning into "minority" in our own nation?ALL THESE INCIDENTS AND PEOPLE INVOLVED ARE TRULY HURTING CRORES OF HINDUS' RELIGIOUS SENTIMENTS!! Does LAW AND JUSTICE truly exist? Any crime is a crime and criminals have to be punished equally. We need Sanghatan of all true-hindus, otherwise days are no far when there will be no "Sthan" for Hindus in this "Hindusthan"!! Truth, Equality and Justice have to be equal for all and punishments have to be punishments (without any soft corner) irrespective of the caste and creed. Only then the nation can be truly "Secular"..or else it is just "sick"ular !
