People slam propaganda website that compared Indian Army Chief to Gen Dyer

Leftist propaganda website The Wire stooped to a new low after it carried an article that made a direct comparison between India’s Army Chief General Bipin Rawat and General Dyer, the perpetrator of Jallianwala Bagh massacre.

The Jallianwala Bagh massacre took place on 13th April 1919 when British troops led by General Dyer opened fire at a crowd of people inside the garden, who were unarmed and taking part in the annual Baisakhi celebrations. Officially 379 people died but the number has been speculated to be as high as a 1000.

The article titled “In Kashmir, India Is Witnessing Its General Dyer Moment” sought to somehow draw parallels between the monstrosity of Jallianwala Bagh massacre and Major Gogoi’s novel action of tying a protester to his jeep. Perhaps for the editors of The Wire, stone pelting and flashing flags of ISIS are like celebrating Baisakhi.

This piece in The Wire was possibly taking things too far and people reacted with varied emotions like shock, disbelief and outrage:

Even Shekhar Gupta, who is famous to have reported about a possible coup by the Army, reacted with shock, which proved how low really the propaganda website had sunk:
