(This is a MaxiPost)
Things are not going too well for rant and scream Times Now it seems. They lost LS 2014, loss of Maharashtra, Haryana and probably more losses to come. Then they had egg on their faces over the Black Money issue. Arnab Goswami and his band of circus clowns are truly upset. And as days pass they get more filthy and vulgar against their targets; usually the BJP. It wasn’t even 24 hours since the new Haryana CM had taken charge that the TimesNow goons were stalking him about some Khap Panchayat or Hindu Mahasabha statement on how girls should dress. The CM just responded by saying he will do what is right by Haryana. That’s a mature response from someone who has just taken charge. So, from October 28 till October 30 evening, Arnab and his petty goons carry out a campaign against the Haryana CM. Perhaps the fact that the CM (apart from winning the elections) has promised action against Robert Vadra (darling of our media crooks) and DLF land deals is annoying Arnab and some of his G-37 members. Arnab, who otherwise proudly claims TN is the ONLY channel exclusively reporting this or that, screamed other channels were not reporting on this. So he not just wants to run a filthy campaign but wants the rest of the HATO club to back him up. Nice!
What’s the problem? That some chap in a Khap or Hindu Mahasabha said girls must not wear jeans indecently and that girls should not be allowed to use mobile phones. That some vague chap says such things is enough for morons like Arnab to go on a 3-day rant against the BJP should tell you what the agenda is. It has been so in the past and it will continue. There are a lot of people who say things. There are many Mullahs who issue fatwas at the drop of a goat. There are many politicians who utter nonsense about causes of rape. You may want to condemn such wanton rants but when you turn it into a campaign of hatred, especially against those who wear “saffron”, then you cannot hide your agenda. Cleverly, the shameless Arnab titles it #NewIndianTaliban. (Dear C5M please do note who starts the labelling and name-calling, don’t whine later). Let’s sequence the nonsense first. Since the bigger moron sets the agenda, the smaller morons of TN believe they have the right to scream, rant and chastise anyone they call on their show. There is an absolute filth of a character called Anand Narasimhan who thinks he’s the little underwear of Arnab and must behave worse than Arnab:
Regardless of what my tweet says, this pathetic Anand calls a person on his programme, asks a question then goes into a stream of heated abuse and name-calling at his guest without allowing a second for that guest to respond. I wonder if this guy gets a heavy shot of testosterone before he goes on his show or if his hormones are permanently raging. He is the TV version of the street brawl of Rajdeep Sardesai. I have little doubt that if Anand were to do the same show on the street he is very likely to beat up his guest. And they think this will be applauded as journalism. Such goondas are the real NewTaliban who float on TV channels. Uncouth in their conduct, uncouth in their language and tone!
Whether the Hindu Sabha says it or some Khap I doubt most Hindus pay any heed to it. In addition, the Hindu Sabha guy on the show said the message is for members of the Sabha and not for all of India. Hindus are not dictated by “fatwas” by anyone. Hindus don’t have “bosses” to dictate to them. Their dress-codes and social conduct are mostly guided by their family norms or parental norms. I wonder what it takes media morons to understand this simple thing. Even so, given that Arnab and his goondas were targeting the BJP, neither the BJP nor the Centre or Haryana CM had endorsed any utterances by those folks. Besides, if these are “fringe” elements as Arnab calls them why would anyone debate their utterances for three days? What’s all the rage for? I guess it has to do more with politics rather than social concerns for girls or women.
Let us also get one thing clear. Not just in India, world over parents do care about how their kids dress and conduct themselves. They care about the safety of their kids, especially girls. That doesn’t make them Taliban or dictators. They don’t stone or behead their daughters for violating dress codes. Something our media morons don’t get. To be dressed appropriately for the occasion is a social norm everywhere. You don’t go to a Church in a bikini. You don’t chew gum in a temple. You don’t wear shoes into holy places. All these are not laws. These are social practices. There are many offices, clinics and shops that don’t allow shoes inside. Does any law mandate that? So what’s all the rage for on someone’s opinion on these matters? Even if you feel there is an issue, you report it, debate it decently and draw attention to it. Why the rage against a political party and new govts that have just taken charge. It’s politics and nobody is being fooled. Let us look at a small video from the movie “Man of the house” where a detective is lecturing 5 young girls who are witness to a murder. His job is to protect these girls from the murderer and keep them safe. Let’s watch (1.47 mins):
That is just a comedy movie but where do these dialogues come from? Obviously from the concern for safety of the girls! Teenagers are mostly in schools or colleges. They mostly don’t allow mobiles in such premises? Till they attain an age when they can decide for themselves and take care of themselves most parents do have certain rules on these issues. They aren’t Taliban or dictators as TNow morons would make them out to be. So on Oct28 and Oct29 Arnab and his hate-filled anchors rage against BJP and on Oct30 morning they claim the whole of India has spoken out strongly against the #NewIndianTaliban. And who the hell is “whole of India”? Here you go:
So they catch hold of some Farhan Akhtar for soundbites and then claim the whole of India is up against #NewIndianTaliban. Of all the millions of Hindus in this country they had to get a Muslim to endorse their nonsense? There is seriously a problem with a Muslim commenting on such topics because these celebs are hypocrites when it comes to their own community. On Oct28 TNow had the stupid Saba Naqvi ranting on the same topic on their channel. So I had to ask a set of questions on how a Muslim woman who cannot stand up for the prejudices and shabby treatment of women in her community is pontificating about social norms of Hindus:
Since she was lampooned on October 29 in many tweets in the morning, TNow avoided calling her again during their nightly-rant show on the same topic. I am confident Saba Naqvi cannot answer a single question in my tweets and she and the Akhtar types do not possess the wisdom or moral authority to lecture Hindus on social norms. That said, the nightly rant continued on Oct29 without Saba Naqvi but this time they had the usual suspects Ranjana Kumari and Vrinda Grover. These women come on every show about some stray Hindu group or politician making statement but when real violence happens they are tongue-tied and disappear totally. I want to ask the Muslims and these female warriors what justice and action they have sought against people who assaulted and beat up a young Muslim girl called Benazir Suraiya in Bhopal when she merely advocated Vegan Eid:
You can protest peacefully but you go to the extent of beating up a girl because she carried some placards for Vegan Eid? This physical assault is tolerable for Arnab and his bitchy anti-BJP panellists but mere verbal utterances are enough to send them into hormonal rage. What does Saba or Farhan have to say? They can’t get their own to behave but are prompt in sermonising the Hindu community. It is this diet of hypocrisy that the scavenging, disgusting anchors like Arnab feed on day after day to get their 3 square meals. Gutless morons! Why are Hindus, or for that matter anyone, wrong in telling young girls to dress carefully. While I don’t support public diktats I think the warning should be more because the very scumbags from Arnab’s company (TOI) will be looking for their cleavages, body curves to take pics of and sell as smut through their pages and websites. And they will claim they have the moral right to shoot pics of women’s cleavages without their permission too. The very people who gorge on such smut are usually the ones who also sermonise on women’s body to be respected on stupid TV shows:
So these people who sell images of women’s body-parts for a living are ranting? Then their common question each time is why not the same advice for boys. Well, I don’t see pages of TOI or other newspapers and magazines selling nude or semi-nude pics of boys all that much. Clearly, the flesh of the young woman is their trade. Naturally, society’s warnings, therefore, are more directed to young women. I’m not finished yet. These media pimps who constantly sermonise Hindus or some Swamis on their utterances on dress-codes, they are the ones who delight in gross sales of Nipples, Tits and Asses of women. Here you go on how the media “Dumbs down” people with their nonsense:
“Even Outlook has celebrated Serena William's rump, Padma Lakshmi's cleavage and more. Almost every newspaper has plunged into the war of colour supplements. In a Hindustan Times (HT) story, "Who will dare to bare at LIFW (Lakme India Fashion Week)?", the reporter writes: "Last year, Jesse Randhawa walked out in a nipple-revealing top which Randhawa says slipped, but what a slip—this time's lifw promises a lot more transparency on the ramp and lots of T&A." (Tits & Asses) Shobhana Bhartia, vice-chairperson, HT, when shown the story and the accompanying photo of semi-nude models, said, "These pictures and language certainly upset sensibilities. A decision was taken that we shouldn't have such pictures as our paper caters to the entire family, not just adults. However, sometimes things slip in." When informed that some paper vendors in east Delhi had been instructed by families to deliver HT without the supplement, she asked: "Is that really true?"….Says Bhartia, who has been trying to jazz up HT, with some success, "We want to develop a bond with our readers, especially the younger ones... Most papers and magazines today work to the marketer's 3F formula of Food, Fashion and Fornication. The first 2 Fs, editors openly admit, is a part of success, the third one they say doesn't play a part. But how do you explain a news agency report about Madonna turning to spirituality accompanied by a picture emphasising her cleavage?”
So they are bonding with younger readers and viewers? With what? With soft-sex and fornication? Will Arnab explain why his mafia is selling women’s bodies to attract the young ones? And he and his Taliban have a problem if girls are advised to be dressed decently? I had written all that in a post long ago. And if you care, you can read the whole stuff at “DegenerationX”. That article was written long before TimesNow was born and the pathetic panellists who now lecture us have watched all that nonsense grow in front of their eyes. Many of the very same self-righteous morons who rage and agitate at some stray comment on dress-codes also attend all these Tits and Asses shows that portray women as nothing but sex toys. They love this flesh trade but want to agitate because they want to hide their “political cleavage” under the garb of constitutional freedom and feminism. Arnab’s TOI group is the biggest one that has exploited young women as “Flesh Bimbos” and that is what sensible parents don’t want their girls to become.
Stupid Ranjana Kumari rants these Swamis should be put behind bars on Arnab’s show. On what grounds? Did she demand the same for those who assaulted that Muslim woman in Bhopal, which is a serious crime? You are free to disagree and even debate. But this excessive outrage over 3 days is nothing but “political cleavage” of all these folks that is on display.
They are still angry that the BJP is at the Centre and is now in Maharashtra and Haryana. Arnab and his goons stalk the new Haryana CM and rant about him but these cowards have no guts to get anywhere near Mamata Banerjee whose party is allegedly involved in a major terror racket. To these cowards some stray Khap utterance is important enough to rant and outrage for 3 days but not an issue of national security which the Bengal CM is seriously embroiled in. Because if these bitchy anchors get anywhere near MamataB they would be beaten up by terror-gangs. They find it safer to rant against some Khap or Hindu Sabha which are “soft targets” and easy pickings. If this is not political hate-mongering, what is it? And many of these debates are “wag the dog” distractions to cover-up real issues. Once the evidence of Trilokpuri riots came out all the media pimps are hiding over the issue.
On a lighter note, let’s go back in time. In October 2013 the eastern coast of India was facing the threat of hurricane Phailin. All the channels had lined up weather specialists to report on it. Here’s the woman who was reporting on TNow:
Nothing wrong in what the lady is wearing but she certainly aroused more interest than her weather reports. After some tongue-lashing on Twitter, TNow did not repeat her reports. Why? Were they scared her dress would get more attention that the report? Does she not have the right to wear what she wants? Where did all the freedom to dress and liberal nonsense disappear then? Nobody gives a damn! Dr Subramaniam Swamy even told “Naxal woman” Kavita Krishnan (on an NDTV show) she can run around in a bikini if she wants. Nobody gives a damn. But these fake debates are nothing but “political cleavage” of Arnab Goswami and his cowardly goons that constantly show up in their urge to slam the BJP for no reason at all:
A recent video that went viral shows an actress who walked the streets of New York for 10 hours to make a point. During her walk she encountered about 100 cat calls, mild insults and teasing. This is an actress called Shoshana Roberts:
You can read the report and also watch it on Youtube. Do note that the woman is not semi-nude or badly dressed. She is fully-clothed yet she faces these cat-calls and whistles. She wasn’t touched, shoved or molested physically. It is all very nice to talk about changing “mindsets” as our media morons frequently do. But the reality is there are many parts in India where this would go far beyond mere verbal cat-calls. An advice on dressing modestly is not meant to curb freedom but as a precaution. Parents understand this well. Only those who actually get thrills from the flesh trade in media rant against such precautions. Merely ranting against stray comments will not make evil go away.
Have to remind all these pathetic anchors and panellists who are filthy hypocrites: The young women being advised do not live in your stupid studios. They are in the REAL world of offices, buses, streets, trains, autos, taxis where they do face threats whether you sick morons like it or not. Whether you like it or not, in some parts of this country, evil does stalk the streets, public transport, and even schools. And that is the reality; ranting endlessly against those who advise precaution will not help.
A student was recently arrested in AP. The reason; because he made a Facebook post stating the cyclone Hudhud caused devastation on people of AP because they didn’t vote for YSR Congress. As stupid and silly as that may sound, is it worth arresting someone for that? It may offend some people; others will just laugh and move on. We may not like everything we hear but there is no cause to excessively outrage over mere utterances or opinions of stray individuals. It is morons in media and politics who have brought about laws which lead to arrest of students for uttering silly stuff. Ranjana Kumari wants our police to arrest some more, prodded by imbeciles like Arnab as if our police are sitting idle with nothing to do. This is not a social debate. This is nothing but political cleavage and bikini of Arnab on display.
