Why 2002 Will Haunt Rajdeep & Barkha



In October 2012 the queen of trolls, Barkha Dutt, wrote an article titled “A Roshomon Effect”. For all those who don’t follow Japanese, that’s from a movie by Akiro Kurosawa. In short, what BD wanted to tell the world was there could be multiple sides to a ‘truth’. Not much to worry about that except that this propagandini believes only “her side” is the truth. I wrote a response to her nonsense under “Bark in the USA” Let’s do a quick recap from the first on BD’s first shot in her article:

As a journalist you train yourself to treat both accolades and abuse with the same level of levity; you tell yourself over and over again to not take yourself seriously and you even learn, eventually, to laugh at yourself. You understand that being in the public gaze inevitably comes with being viewed through a coloured prism — whether rose-tinted or jaundiced. And you develop the ability to lightly shrug off the distortions of a persona foisted on you by others”.

That para is from BD’s article and my comment on that is given below:

Read that opening paragraph carefully. Read again please. Did you? Alright, in the very opening you are declared a prejudiced, jaundiced abuser if you’re not one showering accolades on BD. Smart, eh? Since when is “abuse” the antonym of “accolades”? ‘Bouquet and brickbats’ is a common phrase but ‘Accolades and abuse’? And then the “persona” is foisted by others? It has nothing to do with what the individual herself has done? The opposite of accolades could be censure, rebuke, denunciation, reprimand, criticism but it’s highly unlikely that you will find “abuse” as an antonym. Talk about “perceptions”. Hey, how about: “If you’re not with me, you’re an abuser"?

That’s what brings me to write this post merely for the record. As an Amdavadi I have seen many riots, big and small. I have also stated that the Congress party has a history of fomenting communal riots in the state when any non-political agitation is unmanageable. For a sample read “Digvijay’s desperate and dangerous communal call”. I have been a witness to part of the Gujarat 2002 riots too. What was different in 2002 was the skulduggery of reporters with an agenda to overthrow the NDA govt of AB Vajpayee. Among the scumbags who most indulged in fear-mongering and indulged in hyper-ventilating were, naturally, Rajdeep Sardesai and Barkha Dutt. Two of the most journalistically-corrupt media persons of our times. In September 2011 when the SC didn’t accept the plea to prosecute Modi and returned the petition of Zakia Jafri to the lower court here is what I wrote under “SC exposes media’s clean shit”:

On the morning of March 1, 2002 if you had walked the streets of the relatively posh western parts of Ahmedabad you wouldn’t believe what had happened while you were sleeping. You could see shops and restaurants that were burned overnight. All these shops had such names – Bhagyoday, Kabir, National and so on – all belonged to muslims, and this was a predominantly Hindu area. While there was property damage there was no report of people being killed in the area. Even residents of Ahmedabad had no idea of the scale of the riots that were going on. And then suddenly on the scene bursts Barkha Dutt and then Rajdeep Sardesai (both with Starnews then) and some more.

Hour after hour after hour we hear the most horrific stories of mass killings all over the state. In cities, towns, villages and even on highways. Words like mass murder, genocide, pogrom start to gain currency in some quarters. Were there terrible killings? You bet, some of it very horrible. But the kind of dramatic and hysterical reporting on TV was no more news reporting. It was almost fanning the flames. So much so that in some areas some TV channels had to be shut down to contain the provocation. As in the case of war, even in an unfortunate communal riot such as this, ‘truth’ is the first casualty. The numbers-killed story was generously sprinkled with imagination of people being raped, foetuses ripped and more by the media. I can safely say that the response to the Godhra train burning was spontaneous. The Gulbarg case which has become prominent because of the widow of Ehsan Jafri, killed by mobs, were attacks by mobs that would have been difficult to handle by any police force given that many other parts of Ahmedabad were equally badly affected. For all this to make one man singularly responsible could not have been anything but an agenda driven media. This agenda had to be surely backed by political forces and extraordinary influx of funds. This is where the witch hunt of Narendra Modi started.

The drama and excessive nonsense of both Rajdeep and Barkha are clearly etched in my memory. Both these people were also involved in the excessive chest-beating during the Kandahar episode in 1999. I call their reporting nothing short of criminal. These are among the top reasons why I even started this blog. It’s almost three years since the SC ruling of 2011. Here’s the other side of the truth since Barkha likes to talk about multiple sides. This time it is from the horse’s mouth. It is Narendra Modi’s version of the behaviour of Barkha and Rajdeep and he bears out exactly what I wrote three years ago (3.15 mins):

video
That was Modi in an informal conversation with Madhu Kishwar, journalist and social activist. Please do note, Modi says he called either Rajdeep or Barkha to tone down their inflammatory reporting. Neither of them has denied this. I can vouch for the fact that both RS and BD were doing exactly that. If they want to prove otherwise, they should put out tapes of their criminal reporting for the world to see. They won’t! Here’s a transcript of Modi’s statement from the Manushi site:

It was my endeavour that we restore peace at the earliest possible. If you look at the data you will see that in 72 hours we had put down the riots and brought the situation under control. But these TV channels kept on playing up the same incidents over and over again. At the time, Rajdeep and Barkha were in the same channel NDTV. During those inflamed days, Barkha acted in the most irresponsible manner. Surat had not witnessed any communal killings, barring a few small incidents of clashes. However the bazaars were closed [as a precautionary measure]. Barkha stood amidst closed shops screaming “This is Surat’s diamond market, but there is not a single police man here.”

I phoned Barkha and said, “Are you providing the address of this “unprotected” bazaar to the rioting mobs? Are you inviting them to come and create trouble there by announcing that there is no police here so you can run amok safely?” In a second incident in Anjar, she played up the news that a Hanuman mandir had been broken and vandalized. I told her, “What are you up to? You are in Kutch which is a border district. There you are showing the attack and destruction of a mandir. Do you realize the implications of broadcasting such news? We haven’t yet recovered from the earthquake. Have you actually done proper investigation into the riots? Why are you lighting fires for us? Your news takes a few minutes to broadcast that such and such place is unprotected or a mandir has been vandalized. But it takes for me a few hours to move the police from one disturbed location to another since these incidents are breaking out in the most unexpected places.”

What is worse, when I got the matter enquired into by the local police, we found out that it was a small, insignificant structure under a tree which had been damaged a little bit by some crazy individual. But NDTV presented it as an attack on a Hanuman mandir. When the fires were raging these journalists were pouring fuel on those fires.On that day I had put a ban on TV channels because they were actually provoking trouble.  But it was only for one day. Since Rajdeep Sardesai was among the leading reporters covering the disturbances, I phoned him to say, “I will have to put a temporary ban on your channel if you continue with the provocative coverage. There is a well-established regulation that media should not name communities during communal riots nor identify a damaged placed as a mandir or masjid. Why are you violating that code and well set protocol about not naming communities or identifying places, of worship? You are going against established norms.

Barkha tweeted she was never in Surat. Doesn’t matter, it’s either one of them and talking off-hand after 12 years can have errors. But Modi did call one of them he claims. Following their criminal reporting during the Kandahar episode and then Gujarat 2002 many have been convinced that both RS and BD were “motivated”. Those days, the number of news channels were fewer. If you are wondering where Arnab Goswami was during the 2002 reporting; he was in the studios doing the pimping for the ground reporting for the other two. Since then I have called this trio the lowest BAR (Barkha, Arnab, Rajdeep) in TV journalism.Following the 2002 episode NDTV grew wealthy enough to break from Star News and launch a channel under their brand. I don’t know how they got the funds. Do you? And despite consistent losses over the years NDTV survives. That story will come out someday. Since then Prannoy, Barkha and Rajdeep have become exceptionally wealthy. RS and BD were also showered with Padma awards by SoniaG’s govt for their glorious services during Kandahar and Gujarat 2002. A day will come when the story of 2002 will not haunt Modi but many in the MSM and other filthy NGOs. The Holy Ghost also comes in the form of truth. And that truth will first piss them off.

  4. Barkha and Rajdeep will have to answer. It now looks like RS and BD are alone responsible for 2002 riots and till now they were just passing the buck on NaMo. BD, however, will have to answer for many things: Kandahar, Kargil reporting, Taj attack, 2002 riots and many other incidents where instead of reporting she was passing on the information which caused destruction more terror-like. BD is no less than a terrorist. She is a graduated terrorist.

  5. Be charitable Ravinar. BD and RS had travelled all the way to Gujarat from Delhi with their camera teams and other paraphernalia. And what do they find there? They find that the govt. is rapidly getting things under control. So, what's wrong (sarcasm) if a few cans of petrol are poured here and there in the smoking embers, so the journey doesn't go waste?

    I remember reading in my college days about something about the the start of the Spanish-American war of 1898 over Cuba, which was then a Spanish colony. The US press was full of lurid stories of Cubans fighting for independence. A big US paper sent it's best reporter to Havana to see for himself. The reporter wired his editor: "THERE'S NO WAR HERE". The editor wired back :"THEN START ONE". He did too.

  8. You must remember the guy who had to get his blog down on BD. He had just pointed out the irresponsible reporting BD had done during 26 11 by saying in which room people were hiding. And she and her channel went to sue him in court. "Accolades and abuses" is for her to only preach.
    I believe journalism should be free but selling that freedom for awards and rewards is a matter of serious concern.

  9. It is good you have brought out Kandhar again. I distinctly remember how these channels showed crying and chest thumping relatives of Kandhar hijack victims to put pressure on NDA government and whip up frenzy among the viewers. I distinctly remember one of those was a doctor by profession and was screaming on the TV screen that for release of a daughter of a Central Minister (Mufti Mohamad Said) Government of India could release dreaded terrorists, then why can not they release terrorists/negotiate now to release Kandhar victims without thinking about the nation. This Doctor guy and the TV anchors all of them are so called educated and chatterati class was actually serving the cause of Taliban hijackers as they were serving in 26/11. Even today they are serving the cause of Azmi, Azams, Masoods, Owasis and Congress in the name of secularism. If they continue like this a day will not be far when we will see TV anchors like Barkah Dutt, Sagarika Ghosh, and all other Salamas and Sabrinas and Rana's in Hejab and Burkha. These shameless anchors will be comfortable doing that, but we do not want to see our country like that.

    Another shameless behaviour was of Sonia Gandhi. In 2004 and 2009 she asked with flat face why NDA government released the terrorists. I distinctly remember during those hijack days NDA government called for all party meeting to brief them and understand their views about the crisis. In that meeting there isn't any record of Sonia Gadnhi offering any alternative view point to mitigate the crisis. All the parties told the government to do whatever it can to secure the release of the hostages including the release of terrorists. This means that Sonia Gandhi was agreeing to NDA Government's decision of releasing the terrorists. But crook Sonia had audacity to ask questions in 2004 and 2009 election with flat, unemotional, crook face.

    In those days we didn't had youtube like service and technology to record all these TV anchors, their so called Prime Time discussions and Congress misdeeds and post them in public domain. If the TV studios have the guts and commitment towards the truth, they should put all the archived footage of those days in public domain. Somebody should go to Supreme Court to force these TV studios to make them public. I am sure they will flatly refuse to do so and will tell Supreme court that they have not kept the archives and they have destroyed them.

    RS,BD,AG like anchors are the most crook, anti nationals this country has ever seen so far. Remember latest Dehati Aurat by Pak PM Sharif in front of Barkha Dutt?

    1. Not only that...in a hostage situation like this, no country has been able to give up on its citizens. That would be a nightmare for the Government. The Entebbe rescue by Israel is probably the only incident in the world, where a country was able to release its hostages.
      Israel as a rule does not negotiate with terrorists, but her citizens are ready to take the loss of their loved ones too.
      If these presitutes are not adequately punished for their crimes, they will continue to harass the Modi government at the centre. Hence it is imperative that these criminals in journalistic garb be punished and made examples of...so in future, reporting becomes responsible and truthful.

    2. If BJP forms Govt in the center with support of few parties I am damn sure Kandhar and Kargil part 2 like proxy war will once again takes place in India.

      Main worry is no state govt is ready to take on internal enemy. So will be the case if Modi becomes PM.

    3. Three most despised reproters in my esteem are BD, RS, Sagarika.

      She became a 'national reporter' after Kargil. She got her millions (or billions) after Kargil and Kandahar. RS was smarter. He & Sagarika got it all and the 52 cr bungalow from 2002...I hope they lose it all after 2014

  10. These criminals must be made to pay for the lives lost due to their malicious reporting in Gujarat and also irresponsible (not sure if they were actually actively helping Pak) reporting in Kargil war and the 26/11 Mumbai jihadi attacks.

    Investigation needs to be done if they were also actively trying to help Pakistan during the 26/11 jehadi attack. After Kargil (assuming Barkha was naive then and did not realise what she was doing) Barkha and others should have learnt their lesson...yet all the BAR run media continued to endanger the lives of Indian security personnel and the trapped victims of the jehadi attack.

    Judging from the bias of all these people to support the Pakistani point of view and anti-national elements within the country, investigation needs to be done not just for financial corruption but also if BAR undertook active anti-national activities.

    Their cup of wrong-doings runneth over...time for justice!

    Ravinar, this post of yours apart from everything else is also very touching. It numbs the mind to think, to what level these people can fall, just for selfish gains. I can perhaps forgive financial fraud or lobbying by BAR...but endangering the lives of their own countrymen and soldiers...that cannot be forgiven...not at all!

  13. Barkha and Rajdeep remind me of a story of professional chest beaters (Rudali). People engaged professional chest beaters on a death in the family to create an atmosphere of gloom and sadness. Once, such a Rudali gang was crying away to glory at the dead man's house. After few hours, even the near and dear one's of the dead man had recovered their compose and quietened down. However, these Rudalis continued their cries of grief. Eventually someone decided to tell them to stop, as it was getting awkward. On being asked to stop the Rudalis said, "but sir, we were paid to cry, not to stop. If you want us to stop, pay us to stop too." Eventually, the grieving family had to pay up and diffuse the situation. Barkha and Rajdeep and the paid MSM are no better than these professional Rudalis. They will sell their souls for money and fame, and will even charge you for keeping quiet.

  14. I really appreciate and admire the way you avoided controversial past of Mr Ehsan Jafri , a member of Sonia Congress. You avoided mentioning that he has history of participation in earlier riots. You did not mentioned that his killer is another prominent member of Sonia Congress. The trial court is ready to start proceedings since 2005 but the justice to Mrs Jafri has been denied by another activist of Sonia Congress, Ms Teesta, She has put obstacles in path by requesting a stay on the trial court proceeding by misusing legal provsions.
    However you rightly hinted that killings of Muslims in Gujarat was carried out by Sonia Congressman with sole intention of threatening and frightening muslims into submission. It may be noted that Mr Modi performed a penance of 12 years for his failure to out-think communal Sonia Congress . I wonder how much more time Muslims need to come out of clutch of anti-indian communal forces represented by Sonia and Teesta

  15. “What caused such hatred? Is it Ayodhya again? Or is it the fact that ever since the Babri Masjid was demolished the average ‘secular’ hack and politician has led the Muslim community to believe that the demolition of the mosque symbolized the end of Indian secularism? It unfortunately continues to be portrayed that way with some politicians of the Left going so far as to suggest that December 6,1992 was the ‘darkest day’ in the Indian democratic history. This is rubbish. There have been much darker days when ordinary people have been brutally massacred by vengeful mobs driven by communal hatred. Surely, even the murder of one innocent person is more important than the demolition of a structure made of brick and mortar?It has, alas, never been looked at this way with the result that the word Ayodhya triggers of such an irrational reaction among Muslims that they fail to see the bigger picture.”

  16. Honestly, these Elections are getting more and more interesting. The Gandhi family's desperation to stop Modi at any cost is actually titillating voter curiosity to see what will really happen if Modi becomes PM. What is this impending disaster everybody wants to avert so badly?

    Gandhi's have actually pulled out all stops to avoid his ascendency to PM post. In turn, they've made it easy for Mr. Modi to see where the shots fired at him are coming from. The enemy is no longer hidden. All Gandhi supporters/well wishers/stooges/pimps are out in the open. I would go the extent of saying, there are many like Varun Gandhi and possibility Sushma Swaraj too within the BJP camp who also look like Gandhi plants. She even had backing from powerful countries like USA and EU who banned Mr. Modi. Looking back, I have a tinge of admiration for this Sonia female. Her planning was immaculate. I appreciate her far sightedness. She never targetting Vajpayee, Advani or any other central leader from BJP. From day 1, her enemy and by that logic, enemy of her Media paramours has been Modi. They went out of the way from day 1 to defame him. She could never have lost!

    The only thing that could defeat her was the surge of this one man, Narendra Modi. Only he could seriously damage her. Only he would seriously damage her. But what were the chances of him first being annointed the BJPs Supremo and subsequently chosen by a SECULAR NATION as the Prime Minister.

    It does in a way force you to believe in destiny/god. She has hurled every single accusation she could. She has tried every trick of the trade. She has now even tried to hit him below the belt by raking up his marriage. I must add, its not as if she is very secure below the belt, figuratively speaking. Yet he looks all set to win the bout. And in all possibility, this could be her final bout.

  23. Its shocking to say the least how media mafia acted during riots. But that has been the consistent behavior of BD (Kargil, 26/11, radiagate). Where there is none, stoke fears and gain TRP. Where there is all, become a part for $$$. Thanks Rav for providing the real facts. I always thought there was some mischief from media people in 2002 in Gujarat, but not on this scale. I'm already cynical about Indian (in part US, UK when it comes to covering international issues) MSM but now that reached a whole new level. But the real question is what are the authorities doing when media is stoking these fears? Is there no such thing when it comes to Queen's agents? I hold these authorities more responsible for letting media mafia do anything they wished to please the Queen. Wish more people read your articles and think for a minute (instead of saying "modi is a dictator" like my colleague in IT company says). Sometimes when I see Queen's photo now, the movie scenes from Apocalypto pop up! What a country have we become in just a decade?

  30. Hi Ravinar

    NDA paid a big price for the botched up reporting during 2002 . Same thing happened with yeddy. While yeddy comes nowhere near modi in terms of stature, fact is the first bjp govt in the south was hounded by media and issues got compounded by the stupidity of local bjp leaders. Expect more such nuisance if modi comes to power. Look at the way media is reporting last few days about muslim vote consolidation - as if only their vote matters. If hindus still dont wake up, nothing can save us from being reduced to 2nd grade citizens in our country

    1. One should understand that it is a well thought out strategy by Congress/Communists and Crook Media. If anybody from BJP succeeds to from a government, they will use all their might to defame him by hook or crook. This happened with Modi, this happened with Yeddurappa. This happened with Vasundhararaje in Rajasathan. The foolish Delhi BJP leadership never understood the games these crooks play and came under the pressure to interfere within states and had to pa the price. Fortunately NaMo was saved from this interference. Not only this, as a country we will also get more attacks from Pakistan, Taliban when NaMo comes to power at centre. We all need to be very tough to defeat their design and stand solidly behind NaMo.

    2. Very rightly said.But the leader of BJP is Modi and not Advani or Sushma Or Jaitley. Modi along with persons like Subramaniam Swami, are potent enough to not only thwart but take them to task.. Let us hope he will be able to unmask these cronies & scoundrels in 1st year itself..

  31. There has to be a way in which our views get heard as well. Electronic media is completely with dongi party. So unless we have some way to counter the situation, we will be fighting a losing battle. The reporting in vernacular press bothers me and I just hope the modi wave isnt exaggerated.

  32. Just like 2002, Modi's efforts were not recognized in controlling whatever he could do in that situation,and instead all efforts were made to demonize him. Similarly in his marriage situation, instead of recognizing the noble cause he stood for, they again trying to discredit him somehow. But they are on a very weak plot now. They should be dealt with an iron hand from may16. Needs a masterstroke from Modi to cleanse these scoundrels in their very own secular manner..

    1. Dear Kaps,

      Completely agree. I feel proud of this husband wife duo. One renounced marriage for nation & other renounced marriage for maintaining commitment to her husband's dignity. Really rare in todays times !!!

  33. I came across this damning article on Modi which portrays him as a major divisive leader that will heighten Hindu Muslims tensions. Of course the International community is least bothered about people in India. They seem to be creating a base to explain communal tension under Modi as PM.

    http://www.vox.com/2014/4/10/5597644/narendra-modi-india-elections

    This is slowly circulating in social media. I came across it twice on FB. I think this article needs to be rebutted point-by-point. I could only think of Ravinar

    1. Offence is the best form of defense. I would request Ravinar to do expose of RaGa,SaGa about their numerous fake incidents in their life. Time to get onto masters of Rajdeep,Barkha,Sagarika. They stand naked now, time for their masters now!!

  34. All ,
    ghosts haunt only the sensitive but not the shameless , ruthless vermins. Unless Namo wins with a comfortable majority and chooses to cleanse Indian mainstream media and in the,bargain have these vermins ( bd, sg, RS, rk , n ram et al ) hauled up, penalized. - these are going to continue with their irresponsible zombiesh insane existence and continue to dictate a mediocre public discourse

  35. hi ravinar

    snakes sheds their skins many a times but they never changes - their tact - their taste - their food - it remains as it is.

    and you can not ward them off by offering them milk - if you want to survive then - their fangs & venom needs to be removed and if it is not done then - extremely sorry to say - but then - they need to be crushed - they need to be .................

  36. Sir, Im in tears going through your article I recall every scene of Gujarat pre and post 2002.

    My English isn't but will try to explain first hand account of Gujarat Pre and Post 2002

    starting 1995 till 2000-2001 i used to go to Ahmedabad as it was 3-4 hours drive from my home town in Rajasthan, but before i plan to go i had to check news papers, call up friends and relatives to know if there are any riots going on....if any riots going on in the City i had to put off my plans to go to AMD (Ahmedabad) because even if the riots are just in parts of the city and not the entire city but why would i put myself into that danger...! so i would wait till things are better again...but it was just too often the riots.......!

    and have been witnessed to many riots broking off just in front of me and police fires in air etc. etc. and i had to run for safer places.

    who was at loss? all the riots pre2002 in Gujarat? (Continuing in next post due to character limits)

  37. who was at loss? all the riots pre2002 in Gujarat?

    Hindu Community always suffered causalities and financial loses resulting from Muslim youths loot, and burning the shops owned by Hindus, and same cases of rape too.

    Godhara around 200KM from my place....people (all hindu and muslims) used to call Godhara as Mini Pakistan as so many Pakistani stuff easily available in the city even during the time the trade relationship with Pakistan was completely banned, the Muslim Boys wearing MIRZA (A famous Pakistani Shoe Brand) CHAPPALS, so if chappals was easy to smuggle in from Pakistan during period of no trade with pak. how hard for these guys to bring in weapon etc. would have been? it must have been very easy for those guys as the DON LATIF (Google Latif) of Ahmedabad was smuggling things from pak and distributing among muslim youths.

    So a poor hindu boy who used to get thrashed every now and then by muslim boys,

    Hindus couldn't walk into the streets of muslim dominated areas freely out of fear that they may attack any time without any reason but provocation of some mullas or PAKISTANI TV

    Hindu Women cannot go out of their houses without accompanying male from family out of fear of those muslim goons who are always busy sharpening their knives or polishing guns

  38. What they should do ? React? oh well but as you know Gujjus generally are people who are always afraid from doing any single thing wrong as in PAAP its in the culture of Hindus never to hurt any one living be it human or animal they were never reacting to anything but....there is limit! 2002 was the time when Gujjus said ENOUGH IS ENOUGH and yes they taught a tough lesson to those who was causing them sleepless nights in fact peace less life. and rest is history.

    one more incident i was witnessed to

    Peacock our national bird isn't it? ok our national bird we all love and respect right?
    but these RoP guys don't they loved to hunt the beautiful bird down and eat...! one day i was going to a muslim friends house and since i was close the entire family i need not worry about taking permissions etc. before going in or roaming inside just any where so went at the backyard and found that my friend and some other muslim boys were killing a Peacock they had captured some where from nearby jungles and i opposed so the friends of my muslim friend who were involved in killing the peacock instantly started shouting at my friend saying why u allow a kafir inside ur house etc. but my reaction? i called up police they caught them and the case was registered so this things were very common in Gujarat but Thanks to (SORRY IM NOT TRYING TO JUSTIFY ANY KILLINGS) 2002 riots things are better now, no riots no fears, never need to check news before planning a trip to much developed city of Ahmedabad a city which is very close to my heart, thanks to great Administration of Mr. Modi Since last 10 years i can roam around almost any where in Ahmedabad with my wife, along with my kids, with my sister or bunch of friends unlike Pre2002.

    Same applies to Muslim families, have seen them roaming around Ahmedabad at odd hours no fears what so ever....and i just feel happy.

    Thank you Mr. Modi no words could match your sacrifices no words could compensate the pain he must gone through all these years due to this MIS-REPORTING of AS MC said above "Two of the most journalistically-corrupt media persons of our times"
    (Sorry i know I’m not good at writing that's why i don't do blogging: D)

    Thank you.

  40. I am sorry Ravinar, I don't buy your arguments. Although I do not buy media propoganda on Gujarat, I do not understand why the central govt did not make stronger rules against the channels. It was NDA at the center not UPA. I think its governance deficiency if you are unable to contain and convince people , journalists included to think in national interest.

    1. At a time when riot is on-going, it is expected from the media to be responsible and abide by the norms already in place. It is also the first time when MSM (few then) went on a clear overdrive like never before. If, what Modi discloses is true, then BD and RS had already done the damage. Modi says he banned the channel for a day.

      Central Govt. had nothing to do here. Their importance came at the time Army was needed. Although I do agree that being BJP-led they could have give more support post riots-- as in to have investigation over alleged claims and sort the matter out rather than allowing it to linger on for years. Neighboring Congress states (barring Maharashtra) did not help by sending police assistance when asked for. Imagine if Congress was at the center?

      In the end, one needs to have clinching evidence to nail such corrupt journalist. Random research such as that of Madhu Kishwar is insufficient. I count such journalist as bigger criminals than politicians, for they sow seeds of falsehood in the minds of people most of which can never be undone!

  41. Great work Ravi. Very impressed.
    Soon Hunting season will be over, but the hunters will be now hunted down. I hope they have plan B ready, and accompany the Queen Bee to hell or where ever she goes. Will be good riddance to see RS, C5M, BD disappear. Other option is to join Naxals and kill innocent people. Queen Bee is capable of that and may be these hunters also. Soon I will be looking for my AK49.

  42. Well everyone has put up good points...and bringing out facts. I just think why aren't we questioing our so called journo's.

    If we had to still talk about 2002 at 2014 then we need to question how many such years for other parties. Unfortunately many of my fellow indians are failing to understand the ploy of few people.

    Money and power always hides facts. May be NaMo ilwas the CM ib 2002 but look after 2002 has this been repeated. A man's character is shown by his will and he has always stood up against his critics.

    I hope this time atleast people make a wise decision instead of following news channels.

    Folks See this Video. NaMo has his ideas perfect even then. And RS was trying to twist his words even then.

    RS's hate is evident even then.
