BBC makes it clear, controversial poster held by Twitter CEO was about Brahmins and about defaming Brahmins

With the systematic vilification of Brahmins, just like the Jews were vilified in Nazi Germany, perhaps many colonial torchbearers like the BBC don't fully comprehend the fire that they seem to be playing with.

Recently, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey was in India and his trip was no short of a national controversy. While here, he was criticised for several things like his posture and clothing while meeting the Prime Minister and discussing fake news with Rahul Gandhi of all people who is the biggest purveyor of fake news.

Then, Jack Dorsey met a few Leftist women journalists to discuss their experience on Twitter. During that meet, apparently, Jack was gifted a poster that read “Smash Brahminical Patriarchy” by a Dalit ‘activist’. Jack held that posted and posed with it. The photo was then uploaded by Anna MM Vetticad who is also a left-leaning ‘journalist’.

The poster attracted some incredibly sharp reactions from Hindus who saw this as an insult to their faith. The selective targeting of Brahmins reeked of an anti-Hindu bias and also, of a larger political agenda. Many thought Jack might have been set-up and perhaps didn’t know what he was doing.

With that theory, the heat was turned on Twitter’s lawyer who is of Indian origin, Vijaya Gadde. Both Vijaya and Twitter claimed that the poster was a gift and they had no intention of any caste-based connotation. They also claimed that it was a private picture, a claim which was contested by a journalist who attended the meet. Their claims of the poster not being about caste were also debunked by the very ‘activist’ who gifted Jack the poster.

Now, it is becoming increasingly evident that the poster was in fact about inciting caste hatred against Brahmins.

The British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) which recently released a shoddy research branding Nationalists as the driving force behind fake news only to later retract the generalisation slyly, has come up with a cartoon that incites further hate against Brahmins.

In the poster, the vilification of Brahmins as a whole is rather evident. With this poster, it becomes clear as day that the narrative being built by the usual suspects is that of demonisation of Hindus and especially caste based hatred against Brahmins.

The BBC hate only makes it evident that the poster held by Jack was a first step in the systematic and institutionalised caste hate which is being furthered by the Left ecosystem.

Many on Twitter too were quick to react at this casteist bias of BBC.

Rightly so, some even found parallels between how the Jews were demonised in Nazi Germany and how Brahmins are being demonised today. This parallel was also drawn by Senior Congress leader Manish Tewari. He had said that just like Jews, maybe Brahmins should accept their fate, now.

One Twitter user said that it is entirely possible that Jack Dorsey was ignorant and didn’t understand the ramifications of the poster he was holding, but BBC is certainly deliberately demonising Brahmins and inciting caste hatred.

With the systematic vilification of Brahmins, just like the Jews were vilified in Nazi Germany, perhaps many colonial torchbearers like the BBC don’t fully comprehend the fire that they seem to be playing with. Inciting hatred against a particular section of people in this brazen manner can lead to catastrophic results in a country as diverse as India. But BBC, perhaps, is more concerned with setting the “narrative”, just like they did with their shoddy research.
