Swapan Dasgupta – Running with the Hare, Hunting with the Wolves?

March 8, 2014

(Most Hindus are naive and historically it has been easy to CON them. Simple slogans – “Garibi Hatao”, “Aam Admy” is what it took to fool them. Other simplistic slogans conning many Hindus include “Right”, “Center Right”, and these are often covers for maliciously peddling SickuLiarism and anti-Hindu hate, while feigning understanding and sympathy. These perversions result in half baked and ignorant efforts to describe India’s problems, prescriptions that are not rooted in native realities, and destined to fail.  Many of the people shaping these anomalies define themselves  based on western frame works – as right of center, or conservative, or classical liberal, or libertarian etc. Insightful would tend to call such people as Sickuliar Right or HINO (Hindu in Name Only) or BINO (Bharatiya in Name Only) or IBCDs (Indian Born Confused Desis) or simply confused desis. Let us define these people and the anomalous positions they are projecting as SickuLiar Right, for convenience and also because  many of them seem to have discomfort asserting their native identities in public space. Cunning among them wear a native facade exceedingly well (Mein Bi Hindu Hoon Deceit), but the mask slips as you scrutinize their positions on substantive issues. Here we catch Swapan Dasgupta while his mask is slipping. Not a surprising media crooks like Rajdeep Sardesai etc introduce Swapan Dasgupta as “Rightist”, “BJP sympathizer” etc. Best selling Author, Rajiv Malhotra has a lot to do with the masks slipping from the faces of closet SickuLiars. Rajiv’s work has resulted in organized efforts at abusing/undermining/demonizing him)

Writing in Open Magazine, Swapan Dasgupta (SD) pens lots of canards. The goal of course is to confuse further the already bewildered Hindus. This post was a quick review on the Swapan piece.

SD writes

As someone firmly committed to the dismantling of protectionist barriers, I argued that the media could hardly claim special status.

At a superficial level, SD’s take on media looks a reasonable take. Let us examine this further. AB Vajpayee actions, listening to such half baked wisdom, resulted in India’s main stream media becoming what it is today – corrupt, controlled by dubious and a den for crooked. To understand the effect of dismantling that SD cites, read on about one of Delhi’s media mughals – NDTV Prannoy Roy.

The real issue when we are dealing with the economy as always is the national interest, and creation of level playing field. Apart from the government, incumbent businessmen do try to impose self-serving protectionist barriers often under the cover of “free market”, and “right to choice” shibboleths. For eg – check out Bill Gates specious defense for GM food.

Knowing Sadanand Dhume – Nastiness Ad Nauseum?

September 2, 2012

image

Sadanand Dhume (SD) writing in American makes a pitch that the Indians in the US should vote Republican Party. The shallowness and factual short comings in his position are being highlighted here. One can also get a glimpse of the agenda SD types push.   SD writes

And in general, Republicans have greater clarity about the threats democracies such as India face from the rise of an authoritarian China and the resurgence of radical Islam.

Dhume is deliberately muted on xn fascist evangelism and its threat to democracy. Apart from subverting state apparatus under Sonia Maino, Christian evangelist initiatives have seen an over drive converting naïve natives, and driving a malicious demographic offensive in large parts of India. Insidious evangelist conversion is a zero sum game and remains a greater threat than radical Islam in undermining native Indian well-being – as far as scale goes, today, Islamic radicalism is restricted to radicalizing Muslims; Christian evangelist initiatives go deeper in terms of their impact and subversion. Influential republicans have tended to back evangelist agenda. While Christians encourage Hindu versus Muslim narrative, christians at least since 1500s, have played a significant if not dominant role in shaping India’s destiny.

Others still may simply prefer the gaudy identity politics of the Democratic Party to the GOP’s quieter acceptance of all as Americans.

Juvenile attempt by Dhume here to hide Republican party’s “Christian” identity politics?

The overwhelming majority of Indian-Americans are economic refugees who fled the wreckage of Nehruvian socialism for greener pastures.

Dhume deliberately omits here the enabler of economic abyss – nehurivan sickularism. And that Indian poverty was an outcome of Islamic and much more significantly xn imperialisms.

That both Jindal and Haley tend to wear their conversion to Christianity on their sleeves obliquely sends the message to some that the largely Hindu and Sikh Indian-American community may not be entirely welcome.

Dhume has resorted to malicious obfuscation here. Nimrata Randhawa was not a typical Christian convert. She was a proud Sikh. Even her marriage followed Sikh procedures. Reality of pervasive Christian intolerance in polity and smear innuendos made the proud Sikh reluctantly acknowledge herself as a Christian.

By nominating a Mormon to run for the presidency, the GOP has punctured the myth that it belongs only to fundamentalist Christians.

Irrelevant straw man pitch by Dhume here. GOP nominating a Mormon is different from GOP nominating a Rajiv Malhotra. While some Christians may consider Mormon to be less/un Christian, most Hindus/Sikhs, let alone Christians, would see a Mormon with their belief in bible and christ as Christian enough.

Moreover, no reasonable person can gainsay the fact that America’s prosperity and proud tradition of religious liberty owe their existence to a society built on a bedrock of Judeo-Christian values.

Dhume’s gloves are out. Prosperity and Liberty as outcomes of xn values is sophistry at it nastiest. Dhume skates on thin ice here and falls flat. Dhume uses “gainsay” instead of “deny”.  Did he think subconsciously that his charlatan-giri here would not get noticed? A reasonable person just needs to consider the following questions to unplug Dhume’s chicanery here: Isn’t islam a uber-judeo-xn ethic? Will judeo-xn values take America to a medieval hell-hole? And has liberation theology got nothing to do with judeo-xn values? Was there biblical justification of segregation and slavery and sending natives to settlements? “Judeo-xn values” sophistry pushed by the pretentious is a stinking lemon if there was one particularly in the light of christian resistance to Science and the efforts to stop and undermine teaching of evolution. Readers should notice the similarity between Dhume gloves and Amartya Sen take on xn schools.

Closing Comments: Binary stereotypes and sophistry – small/large govt, pro/anti choice, and ‘bipartisanship is good’ type narratives pushed in the US have limited utility and often help camouflage reality. This piece is not to value judge Romney or Obama. Jimmy Carter et al are as “Christian” as they come. Evangelist goals received strong support in Clinton administration as well. An American, including the Hindu would be well off making their voting decision based on the ideas presented, track record of the candidates, influential party stakeholders and chose the better option. Christian extremism remains a factor in the US polity and undermining that would mean good for the Americans. Fox TV/Sarah Palin type “family values” is euphemism for “christian values”; while Sean Hannity etc try and work up a frenzy on “Big Government”, what they censor is their position for “Big God”, a slippery path with a track record of causing incalculable harm to humanity, no different from Shariah hell-holes.

Tailpiece: There is a small section of motivated and pretentious HINOs often with links to dubious moneybags that parrot out of context xn west republican/conservative lines for India– secular/center right etc. Most of this agenda peddlers are quintessential sepoy types of another variety and often anti-Hindu. The gullible Hindu is the audience for this chicanery and disinformation.

Sickular Confusion and Retraction

January 23, 2011

India’s self styled national newspaper ‘The Hindu’ reported a news that was all fire and brimstone at the recent Supreme Court Judgement rejecting CBI’s appeal for death sentence at him.

The news was written by a ‘Special Correspondent’. It said “Expunge remarks against Graham Staines” referred to “Editors”, “civil society” Court remarks as “gratuitous” and “unconstitutional”.  In India by the way self certified ‘civil society’ and ‘editors’ are perceived by educated people as swear words considering the long history of media deceit that includes the recent Radia tapes release.

News was remarkable as it was an open defiance, contempt of highest judicial authority in the country, Supreme Court of India.

What is intriguing was that later in the day, the paper backed off. It retracted news. The retraction withdrew the ‘media backing’ to the self styled ‘civil soceity’. It was signed by editor-in-chief and cited inexplicable mistake by the special correspondent.

Citizens would like to know the truth on who was the special correspondent? The article even had the photo of smiling graham staines family by way of ‘special arrangement’. We would like to believe that the original piece was not a trial baloon to gauge reaction. The newspaper should come clean on who the special correspondent was as the editor-in-chief himself admitted that the act by special correspondent was a serious blunder.

Citizens have a right to know if the serious blunder was motivated by sickular idealogical corruption rampant in ‘The Hindu’ newspaper.  Read the rest of this entry »


Media Mafia fails to keep the Kashmir Hindu Exile News Wrapped

January 20, 2011

Media is supposed to be a watch dog for citizens. In India, media is corrupted. Main reason for this corruption is control of media by those whose agenda is anti-native. This results in dangerous subversion. What people watch as news is faked reality, carefully calibrated. Sickular agenda effectively contorts what Indian people see as news. Rise of internet has broken the media oligopoly. Thanks to the online efforts of bloggers & tweeple, now more & more Indians are getting a peep into reality.

This empowerment of Indian people among others was celebrated by Amitabh Bachchan, Bollywood Icon. Amitabh cited a recent article in DNA written by tweeple @Rajeevsrinivasa. Rajeev’s artcile specifically commends the work of tweeple @swathipradeep2 @barbarindian @preeti86 @sandeepweb and @atanudey for their work in de-mystifying sickular canards and exposing deceit. Now #barkhagate, #chormedia, #ibnlies, #mediamafia #radiamedia are part of lexicon.

Yesterday was an important day for Indians. A day when 21 years of Kashmiri Hindu ethnic cleansing by islamists got completed. It was a unique event in the annals of history. Hundreds of Thousands of Kashmiri Hindus, native people of Kashmir, were driven out through coercive threats. State government apparatus failed.  In the true traditions of islamist sickular discourse, the Hindu victims were blamed for their victimhood, a canard disabused by Governor of the state in 1990, Shri Jagmohan. Government apparatus

Indian Government propagating rogue notions of sickularism failed to provide security to Hindu people. Supreme Court was appalled this week that the Govt provides only verbal commitments and no concrete relief to Kashmiri Hindus.

Native Indian people discussed online ethnic cleansing of Hindu people in Kashmir. They even made this major onlne trends while organized sickular media mafia was muted and provided hardly any coverage on the event.

Islamist Disinformation – When Islamic Terror was attempted to be Palmed off as Saffron Terror

November 26, 2010

There was a concerted effort in the period following following 26/11 terror attacks alluding to a conspiracy. The buzz was that there was a hidden hand which ensured that the top cops ended up at a single point to be sitting ducks for Pakistani terrorists. Sly allusions were towards Hindu organizations and even IB as perpetrators/enablers of the attack. Sonia dynasty led Congress party’s Digvijay Singh responsible for building party’s muslim base in UP among others has been taking similar lines, engaging with others involved in islamic terrorism.

Elements from Pakistan went further and argued that entire attack was an insider’s job. S M Mushrif, former IG, Maharashtra Police asserted something similar in his book “Who Killed Karkare? The real face of terrorism in India”. Former Maharashtra Chief Minister and Congress Member of Parliament Abdul Rehman Antulay with the support of Congress Party General Secretary Digvijay Singh peddled pretty much the same line. As did Pakistan’s ‘expert’ analyst Zaid Hamid. 

Following facts undermine that hypothesis:

1. Milli Gazette cited Hemant Karkare, then DCP Narcotics for committing atrocities on muslims

2. Vijay Salaskar, Ashok Kamte, Hemant Karkare – all were involved in checking organized crime in Mumbai. D Company had ample reasons to target these policemen.

3. The presence of mafia stooges in Mumbai police is known. There is evidence of D Company providing logisitcs support to 26/11 attackers and its nexus with islamic terrorists.

What is far more plausible is D Company taking advantage of LeT/ISI’s 26/11 operations, used its stooges to get the policemen at one place and strike at them. Concerted efforts to shift blame on Hindu organizations for attack on policmen by sections of left media and groups that are suspected as over ground faces of islamic terror lend credence to this view point.

Ashok Kamte was someone committed to native Indian traditions. He used to perform Pujas including Shastra Puja.

Vijay Salsakar and Hemant Karkare Family members have been attending RSS Functions.

One can be fairly certain that the present government, which is a practitioner of vote bank politics and its corrupt big media poodle will not allow real facts on 26/11 to be made public. There is close collaboration financial (Emaar etc.) of Islamic lobbies and the current sickular Indian dispensation. So, facts that Karkare/Salaskar familes were/are sympathetic to RSS, the islamist nature of terror attack will be underplayed/censored in the corrupt big mass media. On account of the unexpected, capture of Fidayeen, Ajmal Kasab, by Hindu Policeman, Tukaram Omble, islami/laal disinformation initiative to palm 26/11 as Saffron Terror has failed.


IBN Lies Live Caught Lying on Mahatma Modiji

May 20, 2010

Church linked IBN Lies Live, a channel that collaborates with India’s CON party (Congress I (islami-isai)) is caught yet again lying. This time on Mahatma Narendra Bhai Modi, leader of native Indians who the native Indians adore more than they love themselves.

Narendra Modi is targeted because CON party and its low IQ Gandh like rahul gandhi can not digest Mahatma NaMo’s popularity among Middle classes for bringing in development – schools, healthcare, infrastrcture, effective governance, things which corrupt feudal CON party has not been able to manage in last 60 years and remains incapable of matching in future as well. Since CON party cant pull themselves up they want to pull down High Achievers like NaMo using devious means.

IBN Lies claimed that NaMo says ‘we would have to convince our own people (in the government) that violence can not provide solution to the (Maoist)problems. Killing the innocent people(by our security forces) would not solve the (Maoist communist) problems. Putting down the weapons(by our security jawans) and initiating the talks(by the government with the rebels) under constitution’s limitations is the only way out for solution(of Maoism problem).

You can see the original video of NaMo’s statement in Aligarh below:

NaMo actually said ‘we would have to convince the Maoist Communists that violence can not provide solution to the problems. Killing the innocent people by Communist Terrorists would not solve development related basic problems). Putting down the weapons maoist Communist terrorists and initiating the talks with the government under cover of Constitution is the only way out.”

Indian Express, TV9, ETV were other media groups that joined the deceit. ETV’s position was funny. ETV (Uttar Pradesh) presented a false version while ETV (Gujarati) presented accurate version. Desh Gujarat most outstanding portal dealing with Gujarat News and India Blooms presented accurate versions.

IBN Lies Live Editor in Chief Rajdeep Sardesai, who sponsors christian fundamentalist world vision is presently president of Editor’s Guild of India. He should be thrown out from Editor’s Guild for peddling motivated lies as news.What do you think?

Post Script: Mahatma NaMo himself publicly exposed media deceit through this interview where he articulated the reality and his position on communist terrorism:
