Is a community under attack? Or a Prime Minister?

We all know the usual suspects in mainstream media have always been Anti-Modi. The hatred has continued from last 12 years and hasn’t stop even after Narendra Modi become PM. But if you follow incidents from last seven – eight months their it seems they have devised a new plan to unseat their sworn enemy.

To push their “Idea of India” these people needed a minority which can be shown as being victimized constantly.

For the last 12-13 years, this minority was Muslims. But of late, this minority has fallen out of favour of “Adarsh Liberals”. It’s not that they have stopped caring about this particular minority. It’s just that it’s not serving their purpose any more.

One of the reasons for this can be attributed to rise of ISIS; a victim Muslim doesn’t garner same sympathy as earlier from the western world. So there’s no point in chest beating that a Hindu nationalist Government is threatening existence of Muslims in India.

So they needed another minority which could be shown as victim to the world to humiliate the Modi Government in front of world.

They didn’t have to look that far. And it began with highlighting Gharwapsi programs by some assorted Hindu groups.

Now this conversion, re-conversion programs have been going on since long. It is an open secret that Christian evangelists are trying to spread Christianity in every corner of India and RSS, VHP has been opposing it for a long time. But now it is being portrayed as if these Right-Wing objections have started happening only after Modi Government came to power.

The Op-ed machinery was back in action talking about how the “Idea of India” is under danger and so on. But when BJP talked about bringing in the Anti-conversion bill they back tracked. Anti-conversion bill was just a bait to call the farce of secular parties about Ghar-wapsi, which kind of worked because the news about Ghar-wapsi stopped appearing frequently after that. I think BJP would never bring Anti-conversion bill, not at least in this tenure.

Although Ghar-wapsi controversy failed, media found their new victim community in Christians. Victimization of Christians gained more eye balls and sympathy from the International media. That’s why suddenly we started hearing Petty theft cases  as attacks on Christians and minorities. The usual news traders and secular actors appeared in this propaganda. International media  as expected participated in this.  New York times went ahead and published many articles including editorials to highlight how Christian minorities are being targeted everyday in India everyday under the Hindu Nationalist BJP Government. Obama also didn’t miss giving his two cents  on this issue which was twisted, tilted by secular media as per their convenience .

If you look close enough, the same Gujarat Riots “Industry” is at play again writing similar kinds of articles and organizing similar kind of debates. Just that “Muslims” are now replaced by “Christians”.

Such an environment has been created that now even if you hear the word Christian in the news you would subconsciously think for a second “Ohh! another attack on poor minorities”.

I haven’t seen Modi giving an inch to this brigade in the last 14 odd years irrespective of how much venom they spewed on him. But probably under pressure not to carry the Manmohan Singh legacy of keeping mum on every issue, he finally spoke on this issue. This kind of validated all the church attack stories. It acted like a stimulus for “Adarsh Liberals”. The “Ghar-wapsi” failed, but this was success.

So you will continue to see the “Idea of India” along with Christian community under constant threat until Adarsh Liberals find a new way of humiliating Modi, and indirectly India.

In fact the next attack will be on Modi’s development politics. The 7.5 % growth will be for only “Hindu Male”. Paul Coelho said “When you want something, all the universe conspires to help you achieve it”. For India this saying changes into “When all the Adarsh Liberals want you to be communal, they conspire to make you one.”
