Editors Guild president whines about airport WiFi even as journalists get attacked in Bengal

Even as fellow journalists in Bengal have been under attack allegedly by cadres of Trinamool Congress, it seems that the recently elected president of Editors Guild of India has consciously chosen to remain silent. Instead of condemning the violence, he was busy whining about airports making him to scratch cards to avail free Wi-Fi.

The silence of these self-proclaimed flag bearers of independent and inclusive media is neither uncommon nor surprising to many. Shekhar Gupta was recently elected as the president of the Editor Guild of India, the institution which comprises of the elites of Lutyens Delhi. Their hypocrisy is evidenced by the fact that while they scream the loudest about upliftment of Dalits and Muslims, they have never had a Dalit or a Muslim President.

Shekhar Gupta, instead of raising his voice against the attacks on journalists in West Bengal, chose to whine about having to scratch a card for WiFi at an airport. Not only that, he was also busy playing chef, where he was testing out blossoms to be used for certain recipes.

Social media called out Gupta’s silence over political violence in Bengal and his bias towards certain political parties.

Some people even questioned the entire Lutyens industry and called out their insensitivity to the burning of West Bengal.

Earlier Gupta has been called out not only for peddling fake news but also for his arrogance. He faced backlash for supporting a Pakistani Journalist’s hatred towards the country’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Coincidentally, editor of Mirror Now, Faye D’Souza, who was also caught propagating fake news in the past, was countered for playing down the violence in Bengal by referring to it as merely a ‘mess‘.

West Bengal has been gripped with terror during these elections. Many theorised. that the ensuing violence was owing to the surge in Bharatiya Janata Party’s support base. TMC workers have been indulging in unabated violence and It seems like the so-called intellectuals are working in tandem by choosing to remain silent.
