Ecosystem still in Gujarat mode, using caste to deflect from Lalu’s corruption

As soon as Jairam Thakur was announced by the BJP as the new Chief Minister of Himachal Pradesh, here is the reaction from Rajdeep Sardesai.

The memo from HQ is clear. Focus on caste, divide the Hindus and bring Rahul Gandhi back to power.

First of all, I want to focus for a moment on the deep wickedness in Rajdeep’s tweet. See how he talks about “Political India” at the end of his tweet, trying to give a slightly “neutral” spin to his partisan tweet. If he was talking about “Political India” why did he only do a headcount of BJP Chief Ministers? Why not ask about the caste of India’s most secular Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee? What is the caste of the vast majority of members of the Communist Politburo that makes a good living in TV studios pretending to care about social injustices in the country?

By the way, you know who raised the issue of the Communist Politburo not admitting a single Dalit for decades? Rohith Vemula! Except that this fact was conveniently forgotten by media in the storm following his death.

What is the caste of the Congress President? Hasn’t he been boasting recently about his “janeu dhari” status? How much more blatant can the casteism get?

Let us count how many of the primetime anchors in English language media come from a “lower” caste. Tell us, Rajdeep. Surely the liberal conscience keepers of the nation in English language media and the commentariat have made lots of room for accommodating the so called “lower” castes? So, when are we going to see a Dalit anchor as the face of 8, 9 or 10PM primetime show on India Today?

Don’t tell me that media in India is run by the Sardesais and Varadarajans.

Incidentally, Rajdeep has a history of jumping for joy whenever a fellow Goud Saraswat Brahmin (GSB) gets appointed to a high position.

But that was before the memo from HQ, presumably.

After the “morally successful” Gujarat model of getting young people to wear their caste names on caps on their heads, liberal India is clearly asking for more.

Early on the day of the fodder scam verdict, Shekhar Gupta was ready with this.

Ready with a red herring to divert public discourse in case the verdict went against the interests of the Dynasty.

Then, the verdict came in and Lalu Yadav was convicted. Or as ‘janeu-dhari’ Rahul Gandhi would say, he was “morally acquitted” by the court. Here is Shekhar Gupta’s first reaction, which is now a pinned tweet on his Twitter timeline, a big lighthouse telling liberals how to spin away the corruption of janeu-dhari Rahul Gandhi’s top ally in Bihar.

As the night progressed and the media had to keep reporting on Lalu’s conviction, one by one, the entire opposition began to pick up on this line. As for Shekhar Gupta ji, he continued to spread the worst kind of insinuations about the Supreme Court itself.

Of course! The “issue” here is everything except for the fact that janeu-dhari Rahul Gandhi’s top ally has just been convicted in a corruption case. Let us go on a wild goose chase looking for the caste of every defendant in every other famous criminal case, the caste of the lawyers, the caste of the judges, everything.

Let us focus on everything except for the fact that janeu-dhari Rahul Gandhi’s ally is a convicted criminal, right?

And these people still complain that Narendra Modi in 2002 had dared to say aloud the full name of Chief Election Commissioner James Michael Lyngdoh.

Some months ago, Shivam Vij of Huffington Post had written an article, explaining how liberals *must* focus on caste faultlines as the only way to derail the BJP. It was a stunning article, not because of its content (which we have always known), but because someone, an alleged “liberal”, felt both desperate and intellectually secure enough to put it out in writing before the whole world.

What does this tell you? How did it become acceptable for media to publish clarion calls such as that by Shivam Vij to divide Hindus on caste lines?

Here is what it tells you : at liberal headquarters, it is a state of WAR! Absolutely anything goes as long as they can hurt their enemy : India’s Hindu nationalists.

They are sending a message, through their public pronouncements and their election campaigns. Nay, they are throwing a challenge to all Hindus :

We will divide you by caste and we will destroy you and we will subjugate you.

Question for Hindus is : are you up to this challenge?
