West Bengal Riots: Mamata & The Secular Media

Many things happened in the country since the time I had my last opinion written. Demonetisation and Mamta’s fury; Punjab polls hustle bustle and Sidhu’s comedy; Dangal and Zaira episode with Islamist regressive minds; bollywood’s expanding knowledge horizon; Dhoni & ODI captaincy shift; and the most unwanted thing – further downwards shift in the politics of current opposition in the centre. Now, all these things, for sure, demand a reproach or appreciation as per their merit. Did you do it? Or you are thinking that I missed something out? Oh! Yes, like most of the mainstream media and so-called secular journalists, I missed the Bengal riots and atrocities on the Hindus at certain places. And to be frank and honest, this was the worst thing that happened and even worse that no media did air the episodes! I was constantly keeping an eye on the happenings and I just did not see any debates, any panel discussions, any ‘atms are shut down’ type live reporting… yes, except one or two news channels who also faced the consequences for the same. Is Mamta Banerjee so angry? Is she afraid of the people of a certain community? Under her shelter, a nominal maulana of a masjid directs ‘fatwa’ against the PM of the nation and she is talking of communal harmony in Bengal? Police does not act; administration does not take cognisance; the shops of a certain section of people, Hindus, are burnt; women are harassed; men are killed & beaten; media is silent; local dailies are kept under check. What is happening in Bengal, Didi? Are you on the pay-rolls of Arabs? Questions will arise because you don’t let a seminar against jihad take place in Bengal; you don’t let a RSS rally take place on your soil.

Riots against Hindus in Bengal is not a new issue as we have seen before in Malda. Media people who pose as pious seculars, Barkha, Rajdeep, Sagorika, something called Rana Ayub, the ABP News type channels and all… they keep mum because in the times when Hindus are the targets and Muslims are the subjects, their hate agendas will not work well. Yes, not to be excluded, our undear Ravish or Rubbish babu whose hatred against a certain section of people and certain section of politicians is well-known to the world now.

What Mamta Banerjee does not know or cannot see ‘in his blindness’ is that she is playing with an obvious ring of fire. She can take the advantage only until the time fire is burning slow and no wind touches it. Once the fire comes in contact with a strong wind, the wind of hatred, she will be on the receiving end and this fire will consume all her hate-agendas. Mumming the blots like the maulana who summoned a fatwa against Modi and all those antisocial elements who carried out the atrocities on the Hindus in Bengal, she is only calling her day. And most surprising thing is the silence of communists who are always seen against Mamta. The bigger question is that what’s happening in Kerala; and once we know that, we can certainly know why Mamta and Yechuri both are silent while Muslims are freely using violence against Hindus in Bengal. Has the time come to shun the rights of Bengal government and use the article 356 to impose the president’s rule? Let’s see what comes out. And thanks to the social media people who have come out with the evidences and images of the riots. We will not let her agenda work because we are no more dependent on the mainstream media anymore!
