Congress spokesperson, journalists follow this troll celebrating murder of a journalist

Yesterday, Rajesh Mishra, a journalist working with Dainik Jagran newspaper, was shot dead in Uttar Pradesh’s Ghazipur district by unidentified motor-bike borne assailants. As per media reports, assailants fired several rounds at Mishra at 7 am on Saturday and fled the spot.

Most media persons, who carried out protests and prime time debates, and also quickly blamed Narendra Modi for left-leaning journalist Gauri Lankesh’s death in September this year, maintained radio silence over Mishra’s death because he was right-leaning and associated with the RSS. While most didn’t trend a hashtag, hold protests at Press Club of India or change their profile picture to Mishra’s, few condemned Mishra’s murder.

But most of these champions of ‘protect press’ remaining silent on Mishra’s murder is not as bad as this abusive murderous troll, celebrating his death. Remember how primetime debates were held because one Twitter handle followed by Prime Minister Modi had tweeted disrespectful tweet following Lankesh’s murder?

This abusive troll is followed by various journalists and Congress leaders, many of whom wanted Prime Minister Modi to resign because of a tweet by someone PM follows. Here are some of the followers of the troll who celebrates murders:

National spokesperson, Congress.

Co-founder of so-called fact-checking website ‘altnews

A journalist

Left-leaning mediahouses refer to him as “demonetisation expert”

So-called human rights defender, who works at Asian Human Rights Commission. Also, a JNUite.

There are more people, most of whom are Congress workers, supporters, alleged journalists, and left-leaning propaganda websites, who follow this genocidal maniac troll. Sample these:

Among these sundry followers, alleged journalist Aditya Menon has been known to stoke violence in Kashmir by using fake images of Syria and passing them off as Kashmir violence images. India Resists is a platform which overlooked the sexual harassment by the founder, Kumar Sundaram, and many of his supporters even tried to normalise it since it was ‘brave’ of him to at least accept his ‘mistake’.

These people can’t give excuses that they didn’t know that the user named “Comrade Nambiar” was a genocidal maniac troll before they followed him. This troll was earlier suspended for celebrating death of RSS activists and even CRPF jawans, and even his second account was suspended by Twitter for such hateful tweets.

We had earlier reported how, before suspension of his original account, the troll was followed by Congress leaders and workers like Ajay Maken, Priyanka Chaturvedi, Salman Soz and Shehzad Poonawalla among others. While these have not, yet, followed the genocidal maniac troll for the third time, all others mentioned above are following him despite knowing his history.

Does this mean they endorse his views? Should these people also take moral responsibility for the blood-thirsty tweets by Nambiar? Shouldn’t there be prime-time debates on his tweets celebrating death of a journalist as well? Especially when this is not the first time he has tweeted such venom.

Here are some of his sample tweets from his earlier Twitter accounts:

Perhaps if the slain journalist is not ‘one of their own’, his murder does not even deserve condemnation, let alone protests by the Congress-left ecosystem foot-soldiers.
