Shekhar Gupta, the divider: from caste to religion

Shekhar Gupta has taken upon himself to showcase the rampant caste and religion based discrimination by highlighting the caste and religion of the subjects. Especially when they are seasoned politicians who are convicted of corruption or upcoming politicians accused of inciting a mob to start a riot. A cursory glance through his timeline will show how he successfully camouflages the divisiveness under the garb of liberalism.

Among other achievements, according to Gupta, their subjects’ biggest achievement to be highlighted, is either their caste or their religion.

Gupta also likes to specify religions of sports persons who have achieved great heights in their field, especially when it is a ‘particular community’.

Clearly, Tiger Pataudi was a ‘Muslim Star’ who was not afraid to use his name, especially when he also came from the lineage of rulers of former princely state Pataudi. That his father, Iftikhar Ali Khan Pataudi, was also a cricketer was not his personal identity either. And that he was a successful cricketer in his own league shouldn’t be the reason for him to carry his name on his sleeve. It has to be his religious identity that paramount.

But then how dare Bhakts, as anyone who questions such blatant liberalisation are called, question Gupta?

Shame on this Twitter user for pointing out the obvious.

How dare this fellow not care about the only thing Gupta cares about?

And why would this Twitter user compare Gupta to Rajdeep Sardesai, husband of patron saint of secularism Sagarika Ghose and numero uno journalist?

What is wrong with the world? Is this how people will start questioning their narrative? Is this how the cookie will crumble? When will these attempts at questioning the liberal way of discrimination end?

Politically incorrect. Author, Flawed But Fabulous.
