Kasganj Police busts lie of anti-India propagandist

There have been a lot of rumours and misinformation surrounding the Kasganj violence that resulted in the death of a Hindu teenage boy on Republic Day. The Indian media, by large plays a chief role downplaying any incident when the victim involved is a Hindu. In kasganj incident too, that resulted in Chandan Gupta being shot and dead, we have already seen many media spins.

Many people from the media have been involved in attempts to dilute the issue. Some have even tried to justify it by blaming the Hindu youth of the area.


The main accused of the murder of Chandan Gupta has been nabbed by the police and the prime accused and his associates are being charged for Chandan Gupta’s murder. But the lies and rumours and subsequent attempts to spread deliberate hatred just do not seem to stop. Even foreign nationals have started pitching it.

Earlier today, a video was circulated on social media where the Kasganj police team was seen breaking the door of a house open and arresting some people. The police team was accompanied by non-uniformed personnel too. Rumormongers spent no time in spreading that the Kasganj police is ‘dragging Muslims from their homes’ by the help of ‘Hindu Extremists’.


In the above tweet, a US-based self-proclaimed ‘journalist’ has somehow deduced that the Kasganj police was taking the help of ‘Hindu Extremist mob’ to arrest Muslim people. He also goes further in his imagination to ad that the police was ‘beating’ dozens of Muslim youth.

Turns out, this wasn’t even the first time Mr Werleman was spreading anti-India venom.


Luckily, Kasganj Police did not waste time in calling out blatant lies. The official Twitter handle of Kasganj police soon clarified to Werleman that the ‘Hindu Extremist Mob’ he is hallucinating about is, in fact, non-uniformed police personnel from their Special operations group. It was evident from the video that there was no violent mob, neither was there any ‘beating’. But some individuals with vested interests are so keen to inflict damage on people’s psyche that facts do not matter to them.


It is very easy to rekindle violence in an area that has already seen a violent death. Kasganj police’s prompt rebuttal not only put rumours to rest, it has also highlighted their commitment towards the maintenance of law and order in the region.

Modi govt withdraws 1966 memorandum barring govt servants from participating in RSS activities: Here is how RSS was officially persecuted for years

Notably, the ban on government employees participating in Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) activities was imposed by the Indira Gandhi government in 1966. The Congress government's 1966 decision to ban government employees from partaking in activities of the RSS was a move rooted in political expediency rather than genuine concern for the public interest. The ban sought to stifle the influence of a prominent organization that ideologically opposed the Congress party.
