NDTV Gujarat Campaign: 'Experience Untruth, First'



His ambitions to become CM forced Shankersinh Vaghela to quit BJP, form a new party and finally merge with Congress. Ever since then, most BJP supporters have called him a “traitor”. Vaghela lost the 2009 elections from Panchmahal. In case you’re unaware, Godhra is the main town in Panchmahal. Vaghela depended on the Muslim votes in Godhra but lost those votes to someone called Karim Abdul Latif. There happens to be another Abdul Latif that most Gujaratis, especially from Ahmedabad, remember quite well. We’ll come back to the story. Barkha Dutt may know a lot about Pakistan but with pardonable pride I can claim to know a bit more about Gujarat than she does. That’s the reason why it is easy to call the bluffs, the lies and the half-truths peddled on NDTV and by various participants on Barkha’s shows. It is also why the lies and bluffs go over her head. Barkha knows precious little about Gujarat beyond Narendra Modi. Even that is mostly driven by her evident contempt for the man.

NDTV and Barkha Dutt constantly lament the condition of Muslims. Considering it’s Gujarat elections, her rants have been upped a notch. Juhapura, Muslims living on the edge, why no ticket for Muslims by Modi… the list is endless. But lately she hasn’t been able to get too far with her regular guests and panellists with her agenda of divisive debates and discussions on her shows, so a little diversion and creativity is in order. She gets two people who aren’t in politics to lunch with her over “Gujarati Thali”. She didn’t clarify whether “Gujarati Thali” meant Hindu Thali or Muslim Thali. I guess we can live with ambiguity on that though. Let’s also be grateful that Barkha didn’t call it the “Effete Thali” since she thinks Gujjus are effete. So in come Suketu Mehta, a writer and Manoj Ladwa, a solicitor. Both are NRI Gujaratis; Mehta from the US and Ladwa from UK. Ladwa seems to be the person who campaigned for UK to re-establish relations with Gujarat and Modi so you could say he’s sort of pro-Modi. Mehta evidently another lamenter of the conditions of Muslims in Gujarat, the communal divide etc. Add Barkha as extra chutney to the Thali and you have 2 against 1. Let’s deviate a bit.  

Along with Barkha, another one to have joined the Muslim “discourse” is her NDTV colleague (and often a stand-in for Barkha) – Sunetra Chaudhury. Now this Sunetra wonders whether appointment of Syed Asif Ibrahim as the new IB chief is “tokenism” in her tweets. Damn! What do we do? If you appoint a Muslim as head of IB they call it tokenism and if not, we aren’t being nice to Muslims. Which way should we jump? Sunetra then wonders how many Muslims are in RAW. Can you get more idiotic? A govt is supposed to appoint people to secret service and then disclose their name, caste, religion. NDTV! Haha! Naturally, people asked her the same questions about NDTV and she replies that one of the biggest NDTV anchors is a Muslim. I suppose she is probably referring to Barkha Dutt. In much a similar fashion, if Modi had indeed given tickets to say 3 Muslims, the same Sunetras and Barkhas would have called it “tokenism” and still continued to hang him. You see, prejudice and bigotry has no cure and will flow in any discourse regardless of what a person does. Is Barkha prejudiced? You won’t need a torch even in a dark night to establish that.

What’s the job of a moderator in a TV debate or any debate? Usually, along with managing the time and relevance to the topic, moderators also point out untruths. Do you expect Barkha to point out untruths that are convenient to her agenda? So Suketu Mehta (SM) is supposedly from Maninagar (Modi’s constituency) and he talked about how Hindu-Muslims were lovey-dovey in his time and greeted each other on festivals. Oh, they still do. And he says now there’s a ‘border’ between the Hindus and the Muslim community neighbouring his residence. Really? Since when are such borders new to Ahmedabad?

Abdul Latif was an ordinary rickshaw driver who rose to become a Mafia don with links to Dawood. His HQ was around Dariapur in Ahmedabad which also had a ‘border’ with the neighbouring Hindus in the congested walled city. Now what was Latif’s business? During the Congress regime he used to run an open bar in a ground roughly measuring 1000 sq. yards. On one end of the ground there was an ‘English’ bar and on the other there was a ‘Desi’ bar. There was nothing secret about it and it operated under the full glare of police during the Congress regime till around 1995. He was finally arrested after Keshubhai Patel became CM. In 1996 Latif contested 6 municipal seats from his area and won. Where did he contest from? JAIL!  Latif was dreaded in Ahmedabad and Hindus lived in terror in his area where arms and crimes flowed freely along with liquor. Gujarat is a “prohibition” state. In November 1997 while being ‘transported’ by the police Latif sought to take a ‘leak’ and tried to escape and was shot dead. Who was in charge of the police then? Shankersinh Vaghela! While people were not unhappy, Hindus believed Vaghela with his new break-away party, the so-called traitor, tried to score brownie points with the Hindus. Does Barkha know all this? Does SM know this? Do they talk about why there are borders not just in Maninagar? Does SM believe borders came up only after 2002? Total rubbish and untruth.

Next, SM goes on to say that it’s difficult for Muslims to get housing in a Hindu locality under the BJP rule. I am indeed surprised that Barkha divine didn’t interrupt and correct him. News channels have been wailing for long about how Shabana Azmi or Emran Hashmi hasn’t been able to get flats in Mumbai. Is Maharashtra under BJP rule too? Another untruth passes over Barkha’s nest. Convenient, eh? That’s a good question though. Why shouldn’t Muslims get housing where they want to? But do they want it? Here’s a report from HindustanTimes – December 14 (A family-friend type outlet of Barkha Dutt):

Godhra, the headquarters of Panchmahal district, has a history of communal violence. In 1980, five members of a Sindhi family, which had migrated from Pakistan during the partition, were burnt alive at Muslim-dominated Signalfalia. Their's was the lone Hindu family in the area and oldtimers say muslims wanted them to vacate their house and leave. The same report of HT adds:

In 1990, four Hindu teachers of Saifia Madarsa in Vorwad area of Godhra town were killed by Muslims, he says, adding, "the mistrust between the two communities runs very deep and Modi's goodwill mission cannot bridge the divide". Should Hindus work in Muslim outfits?

Modi’s goodwill mission cannot bridge the divide he says. Did that divide start in 2002? Any answers? Any answers Suketu, Barkha? Now such incidents are many and not all of them have ended in murders but Barkha doesn’t want to dig up facts from history nor does Suketu. TV discussions are like Viagral pleasures. Next, Modi didn’t give tickets to Muslims! Boohoooo! That wail has been on since a month with Rajdeep, Barkha and all the unholy trinities in media. Here’s what the same Hindustan Times page had to say:

"Godhra is a prestige issue for Narendra Modi. So, he fielded Muslim candidates to divide Congress votes but Congress made sure they backed off," says Firdausbhai Kothi, president of the Muslim Ganchi Samaj Panch and owner of Kothi Steel Limited. So even if Modi picks Muslim candidates; who forces them to back off? Barkha’s party? Who sacked Ghulam Vastanvi from Deoband when he claimed Muslims had progressed well in Gujarat? Hindus?

Any answers Barkha and the media mafia? Now, asking about tickets for Muslims is not a bad question. The right question is would the Muslim candidates represent all or only Muslims? Would the candidates work for Hindus too? Hindu candidates have a history of working for all members of society. If that hadn’t happened the condition of Muslims would be far worse. Nobody seems to ask! And when they do have a Muslim candidate in a legislative house what does he do? Oops... Guy warns the country of a “third wave of Muslim radicalisation” right from the middle of India’s parliament. So will the Muslims convince us that all Muslims aren’t like the Owaisis? And that next time they will throw out Owaisi? Will Barkha campaign for Owaisi to be thrown out? Oh no... you see, he’s a darling at NDTV. Ladwa points out that there were 11 Muslims in the outgoing assembly in Gujarat but Muslims themselves claim they have done nothing.

The stupid morons in the media still don’t get it that their untruths are so easy to expose. They are the ones who made Narendra Modi larger than life by constantly bitching about him like desperate mafia-wives. How is Barkha going to explain Asifa Khan’s statements which are scheduled to be aired tonight (December 16) on her show “We the peepull”? And were Muslims not given enough chance on media to present their case? Where did all the Teestas and Shabnams come from? Shabnam Hashmi goes and provokes Muslims in Juhapura but she doesn’t live there. She lives in a locality called Vastrapur (a predominantly Hindu area) in Ahmedabad.

To their credit, both Suketu and Manoj had the discussion in a very friendly manner despite their differences. Both mentioned the need for a strong Opposition in Gujarat. Ladwa even subtly mentioned Barkha was the real Opposition in Gujarat. But one cannot excuse NDTV for raking up spurious topics without enough research and without enough facts to rely on. NDTV once had a tagline: “Experience truth first”. I guess much water has flown in the Sabarmati since they dumped that tagline. Looks like they thought they had a monopoly on truth and the rest of the public is made up fools. Why not turn it around? Why not: “Experience untruth first”? That seems more suited to their approach since 2002 and towards Gujarat.

    btw,

    just for others information...

    Burkha Dutta is aware of the Sir Creek sell off. I am sure she is aware of even the details of the agreement between pak and india but she never conducted any debate on such important topic for national interest. she also covered up by silence when Namo Raised the issues and cong spokepersons and others were questionsing the timing.

  4. Problem with media houses/ and celebs has been they have taken politics too seriously or one can say personally. Politician will rant each other in morning but in night they will enjoy the efttar or any other party together.
    These media celebs are the biggest threat to our society and it is quite visible that new ppl like sunetra are following the same path. I heard she replaced BD for few days, that explains her calibre.
    But good point is day by day Mango Man are not interested in what these guys say. I have seen ppl who will open these channels and when see these celebs do same blah blah they just change channel.
    I have not seen NDTV or Times now after the evolution of Rahul Gandhi :D Best of luck for these guys.

    You did hit the nail on the head!

    It's a shame that people in NDTV are ganging up against Modi. Bharka is thinking that she has taken birth in this world only to attack Modi, keeps raking up the Muslim issues and spreading lies. I don't remember as to how many times she went to Kashmir and fought for the Pandits or even strongly spoke about the 1984 issue the way she did in Gujarat now. Another fellow Vikramchandra is doing his best for the crumbs thrown at him by his masters. The timing of the show as well as the selection of the panelists are questionable!

    Just imagine the psychological pressure on Modi due to the onslaught by the goons in NDTV, CNN-IBN as well as the NGOs, which are thriving on perto-dollars.. May God give him strength to fight these evil forces!

    I am sure that the people of Gujarat will stand by Modi and give a fitting reply to the Paid Media.

    Again, kudos to you for taking the powerful bull, the Paid Media, by the horns!!

  8. That was a very nice punch upon the "Idiot-Box" Channels.

    The fact is NDTV is ignorant of what does it feels like to be haunted. BD has not tasted the fruit of "being stuck to" the "Radia-gate". She has simply "moved-on".Why did she "moved-on"? Is she ready for apologizing to the Nation for the "obvious" reasons?

    She has no personal integrity forget about the professional one.She thinks lamenting for 2002 will bring "secularism" and "integrity" to her Channel! TRP is the real game.This has again failed for "obvious" reasons. There are some "limits" that Media should NOT cross for obvious reasons.

    Does she knows what secularism means?

    "Secularism" when read with "Republic" in The Constitution means Sovereign -that is composed "of the People" - is allowing "individual-faith" with full respect "without infringing" upon any "type" of faith.
    People can be Atheist, so "type" of faith means providing "freedom of choice" and respecting it without questioning "reasonable" "type" of faith. Secularism has wide meaning but its has nothing to do with pro-minority bias.
    In classical definition State has nothing to do with any "type" of faith when it admits Secularism.In this respect our constitution is unique.

    Its the feature of "Socialism" that creates "Egalitarianism" as a means for "equitable" development and rightly so. This is the reason that we have "reservation" and "pro-minority" bias.But morons see every thing through "Secularism"."Class" based reservation is NOT allowed. Only "classification" based reservation is allowed. "Religion" can be a group under classification not because it is "Religion" but because it has some "rational" link to "economic backwardness" or "minoritism".Its not the reservation of "Religion" per se but the reservation of "minoritism".

    Cant expect these idiot-box channels to know whats the difference between "Secularism" and "Socialism". God save India from these Illiterate Uber-idiots.

  9. I appeal all who are now sure of all the deadly dangerous liers like Barakhas, NDTVs, Teestas, to include in prayer to provide strength and protection from outright Untruth-partial truth. These morons are actually much much more dangerous to India then even Corrupt Politicians and Terrorist. i came to this conclusion 7 years back and this appeal has come out from the bottom of my heart! Modi is my hero because he stood up to their seemingly unsurmountable challange and thank God that people of Gujrat fully supported him. and now, since few years, it looks that whole of India is looking up to him. I am also joyous, elated to see that there rose "Punya Prakop" of the tribes of Mediacrooks and others with sharp Journalistic talent to challange all these media Mafias. It looks to me that Mother Kali has woke up in this counter force to annihilate falsehood of these Chand-Munda :)

  10. Sir, I am born in 1977 in Ahmedabad and brought up here, studied in the Sardar Patel School, Maninangar(Modi's constituency). The devide between Hindu Muslims residential are much ahead of then my born year. My paternal and maternal relatives resided in the Area of Kalupur, Khadiya, Jamalpur much before my born and all witnesses this type bordering. I suspect forget NaMo not even BJP exist in that time. For NDTV, the most of area of Ahmedabad are covered by INCABLENET cable operator and people urged to stop the telecast of NDTV and they literally stopped the telecast. Instead of NDTV people of Ahmedabad preferred NaMoGujarat channel. I particularly believe NDTV is the anti nation channel which create difference between Religion, Caste (More than Owaisi and Keshubapa)

  11. Thnx for such article, facts and lies produced by the holy trinities. I used to be interested in News and the only purpose I watched TV was to watch News, and thought only NDTV, CNNIBN, TIMESNOW and HT were the true news channels. I started following you from a year and you have Changed my perception.
    Now from a couple of month I have started feeling that Congress has offloaded the campaigning to these unholy trinities as some one on twitter truly said CBI and Media are the real opposition of Modi.
    It will be very unfortunate if some one still believes the lies peddled by these news Channel.

  15. Nehru Dynasty TV has stooped down to obnoxious levels and every day there is atleast one programme to discredit NaMO. Even right now, as I am typing this there is one programme being aired on the Vibrant Gujarat trying desperately to prove that under NaMo there is no development at all and infact the state has deteriorated!!! This channel is behaving in such a way that would put even the Pravda of the yesteryear to shame. Shameless creatures to say the least. But, one question remains. What prevents the BJP to boycott these biased channels like NDTV & CNN-IBN ? They should release an official statement about these channels and should completely stay away that will further erode their already beleaguered TRP.

  29. The punchline of TIMES NOW that " We don't pretend not to know the facts " well received by many in contrast with what NDTV religiously practice, pretending to be not knowing "Forced Vasectomy" and President Fakhruddin Ali Ahmed.
    In their recent campaign of Muslims being denied the tickets by BJP in Gujarat and criticizing the same very reason of Irfan Pathan sharing the stage with Narendra Modi as tokenism.
    If we flip the pages of Draconian Emergency imposed by Congress Party; maximum nos of FORCED VASECTOMY took place during that time; interestingly during that period the President of India was Mr Fakhruddin Ali Ahmed and VASECTOMY on unmarried is crime and un-Islamic.
    But the muslim President couldn't prevent the un-Islamic act in the name of family planning and population control.
    Therefore, it doesn't commit that situation of Muslims will only be improved if there be Muslim representation is Assembly.

  34. Good one! Abdul Latiff was a bootlegger who peddled liquor in Ahmedabad under Congress protection. Three truck-loads of liquor were peddled everyday in his hey days. It is also said that this man had also helped smuggle RDX through Gujarat coastlines, which was used in Mumbai serial blast by Dawood. His regime however, came to a screeching halt after BJP's ascendance to power in 1995. And yes, Vaghela staged that encounter in a bid to gain Hindu sympathy and support.

    On Muslim's difficulty in getting a House in Hindu locality, even the reverse was true. it was difficult for Hindus to live a life in those ghettos during Congress regime.

Although it does explain why he got such a prominent seat right next to Barkha so as to be seen sniggering in every shot.

  40. It is high time that we need a 24x7 channel not only airs the center-right views but also dissecting the lies, and bigotry campaign carried by congress mouth piece channels (NDTV, Times Now, CNN-IBN etc...). We badly need one or two channels in this line.

  41. One actually tires of calling the wonderful news channels out for their brilliant "commentary" on Gujarat, but I couldn't pass up this one from CNN-IBN's so-called "Gujarat yatra".

    "While Modi may have his detractors, no one here in Vadnagar appears to have anything negative to say about him, publicly at least."

    Oh the malice! It makes you want to go out and kill someone.

  42. Please don't blame Barkha. She has got the Padma award and is now obliged for life. Please try to understand her moral dilemma and sympathise with her plight instead of criticising her.

  43. high voter turnout worries me. hope this isn't anti-incumbency at work.Praying for a massive BJP victory. what's the situation on the ground in Gujarat?

  44. :D there is lot more on Abdul Miya Latif & Gujarat political mess. finding of Rocket Launchers from areas like Dariyapur, Juhapura was common, especially during riots. Latif was also favorite of Chimanbhai Patel(former CM) who had strong bias against non-patels. Curfews were common in diff cities of Gujarat before NaMo regime.

    Curfews are no more. Now Police is given free hand no matter what the adverse situation is.

    This is interesting. When I was in Ahm'd 2 months back, (was travelling 2 am in the morning) the rickshaw guy told me that how NaMo handles adverse situations like ie. small street fightings. Police will come immediately, block affected area only, clear the traffic and solve the problem. So situation hassle free in no time. I could see Police groups patrolling at regular interval in the time. we were stopped by police en route, checked all our IDs thoroughly and then we were let go. I was impressed.

    Moral of the story is that people know what NaMo has done. As you say, feel in the gut :D I think it is more than that :D

  45. That "We the People" episode was an exercise in stupidity! Some Muslim lady on the panel gave the logic that the reason for No Riots in the past 10 years was that the perpetrators were themselves ruling! If that were the logic, then how come the 2002 riots happened under BJP rule? Nobody bothered to question her on that.

    Also, there was such a hue and cry about symbolism of Irfan Pathan sharing the dias with Modi. Now if there was a Muslim on the dias, you have a problem. If there is none, you still have a problem.

    If there are no Muslim candidates among BJP, you have a problem. If there are some, you still have a problem - read "Tokenism".

    If Modi does not accept the Cap from the Muslim cleric, you have a problem. If he does, you would still have a problem - again "does he think by donning a cap, he can wash away his sins? etc "

    What exactly do they want Modi to do? Just vanish?

  46. That divide is there in a lot of cities, not just unique to Hujarat. It is not just Hindus vs Muslims. Go to Mumbai and you will see all Tamil migrant workers live in the same locality.

    Hyderabad - Old city is all Muslim city. There is no magic bullet to remove that. Development, Development, Development and Education, Education and Education. The truth is the scumbags want to demonize Modi using falsehoods, and half-truths.
