Home News Reports ‘Saffron terror’ and five more fairytales for Hinduphobes

‘Saffron terror’ and five more fairytales for Hinduphobes

In January 2013, at a grand AICC meeting in Jaipur, then Home Minister Sushil Shinde made the following extraordinary statement :

Reports have come during investigation that BJP and RSS conduct terror training camps to spread terrorism… Bombs were planted in Samjhauta express, Mecca Masjid and also a blast was carried out in Malegaon… This is saffron terrorism that I have talked about. It is the same thing and nothing new. It has come in the media several times,

More than the ‘saffron terror’ part, Shinde was never grilled on providing exact locations of these terror training camps.

It made no difference to India’s Home Minister that he was diluting India’s stand against global terrorism by saying that the BJP runs terror camps. If the BJP, which was running multiple state governments at the time, is a terrorist organization, then how are we different from the uncivilized neighbour that we accuse of “state-sponsored terrorism”? But then, Sonia ji and her puppets have never cared much about such things. In the aftermath of 26/11, Shri Digvijay Singh went personally to release a book on “26/11: An RSS conspiracy?” The world pointed the finger at Pakistan, but our Indian National Congress pointed a finger at RSS.

Who needs enemies?

In the last few days, we have seen that the bottom has fallen out of the ‘saffron terror’ theory on close judicial examination. After feeling the heat from (partial) Hindu unity in the last General Election, the Congress Party, as of 2018, no longer backs the ‘saffron terror’ theory through official channels. Presumably, that dirty work has been outsourced to the broader ‘secular’ ecosystem of journalists, intellectuals and academics beholden to the party.

But ‘saffron terror’ is only one of the many heads of this monster. It failed precisely because it was too outrageous; it had too much poison. Its sting was so powerful that it managed to wake up even the Hindus. The real strategy of the ecosystem is to slow poisoning … through multiple channels … keeping Hindus in a depressed condition of self-hatred.

So, I decided to collect five other times this poison was spread through the media cum rumour ecosystem. Perhaps seeing more of the poison in one place will make a difference to people’s understanding of the gravity of the situation.

(1) A boy called Junaid.

He was only 15, with everything in life ahead of him. Alas! His life was cut short on a Mathura bound train when people lynched him to death on an accusation of being a beef eater.

Read and weep for what our nation has become

And now, read and weep for what our media has become.

The beef was nowhere in the picture. But make no mistake, the ecosystem has done its job. Notice that the original article has 27000 shares on Facebook, while months later when the truth came out, there were just 9000 shares. The ecosystem wins as long as the lie stays one step ahead of the truth.

(2) Semen filled balloons on Holi

Remember this?

From saffron terror to Holi terror. The “news” went viral, with celebrity journos asking random men on the internet why they threw semen filled balloons at women. All this was achieved before the truth could get its pants on.

Falsehood is a fast swimmer.

(3) Man attacked for carrying a leather bag

The guy simply made it all up. It is not known whether this story was a part of a Final Year Project at Journalism School before elite newspapers come over to conduct campus interviews.

(4) Intolerant Hindus rape 71-year-old Christian nun in Bengal

It was not a warning but a symptom. A symptom that media is committed to spreading unsubstantiated rumours in its propaganda war against the Modi government.

A Bangladeshi native by the name of Nazrul Islam. Wonder which casteist, pro-Hindutva RSS shakha he was working with?

(5) Church attacks

Remember when the Prime Minister of India was facing questions over a theft of Rs 8000 from a school? Apparently, local police constables were all on vacation, leading media to pose questions on petty crime directly to the Prime Minister. What else does Maharashtra CM Devendra Fadnavis have to do with his time than to find out who threw a stone at a church in Navi Mumbai?

So much so, that ex-Mumbai Police Commissioner Julio Ribeiro wrote expressing his pain and insecurity as an Indian Christian and got 19000 Facebook shares for it.

Turns out that all these assorted incidents were just petty crimes strung together to form a narrative. The story of “church attacks” had no staying power and faded away soon enough. The story had peaked right before elections in Delhi. You can see that it served its purpose very well.

These are just five fairytales that the ecosystem told Hindus to make them feel ashamed of themselves, their country and their culture. It’s the slow poison designed to keep Hindus distracted while the real horror story is being written. It’s a waiting game that the ecosystem is playing till the demography overwhelms us in its natural course. By the time Hindus wake up, it might be too late.
