Shekhar Gupta manages to expose his own hypocrisy by preaching over caste issues

Journalist Shekhar Gupta who is best known for publishing a coup story, has managed to expose his own hypocrisy over caste matters. On Wednesday he shared an article from “The Print” of which he is the founder and Editor-in-Chief. This was incidentally written by a so-called “feminist poet” who once wanted PM Modi assassinated:

It as a result was indeed amusing to note that Gupta had chosen to imagine a world without castes, when he himself has been accused in the past of whipping caste sentiments by making casteist comments.

It was noticeably witnessed how Gupta was openly stoking caste tensions post RJD supremo Lalu Prasad Yadav’s conviction in the fodder case. Here Gupta was seen alleging that politicians belonging to upper castes don’t get convicted in corruption cases and only the politicians belonging to the lower caste get convicted.

Gupta has shared this hypothesis of his by pointing out that a lower caste Lalu was convicted by the judiciary while an upper caste Jagannath Mishra was acquitted. This was punctured a few days later when the judiciary also convicted Mishra in another fodder matter.

Besides this example there have been various other instances where Gupta has been caught spreading caste based divisiveness under the garb of liberalism. As a result it was indeed ironic to note that the same Gupta who spared virtually no chance to bring in caste into an issue.

This was also highlighted by a twitter user:

Coming to the article, the author in question claimed that a “post caste” world was still a distant dream due to Brahmin children wearing the “sacred thread”. Such a direct attack on private Brahmin practices was slammed online:

Such an attack on Hindu practices, might also lead people to question whether the ulterior motive of the “post caste” article was to indirectly attack the Hindu traditions under the garb of “so called liberalism”. This theory might get bolstered by the fact that The Print too has been caught in the past spinning innocuous stories into full blown caste controversies.
