Ravish Kumar warns of attempts at ‘sowing religious discord’ within Army, praises Caravan which divided Pulwama martyrs along caste lines

In a bitter case of irony, Ravish goes on to praise The Wire, Scroll and Caravan, outlets who have time and again epitomized everything that is wrong with modern-day journalism.

In a recently organized event by Leftist Propaganda outlet, The Wire, ‘Eminent Intellectual’ Ravish Kumar spouted numerous inanities that only goes on to highlight the extent to which ‘liberals’ have a delusional sense of their own selves.

The Wire Dialogues was a manifestation of the cocoon that the Liberal intelligentsia has engulfed itself in. Journalists appear to believe that they ought to be accorded special rights by virtue of the profession they are in.

Without going into the veracity of the allegations or whether the UPA regime used to indulge in similar tactics or not, journalists need to realize that they are subject to the same laws that govern everyone else. If an ordinary citizen can be sued for defamation, then it’s not clear why journalists should not be.

The sheer entitlement of Ravish Kumar reeks of petulance and a deluded sense of grandeur. People have their own priorities, they have their own lives to deal with. Why should they be bothered if some politician takes the legal action against some journalist? Moreover, it is a right that is granted to politicians, just like any other citizen, by the Indian Constitution. Why is Ravish so threatened by an Indian citizen exercising his constitutional right?

In a bitter case of irony, Ravish goes on to praise The Wire, Scroll and Caravan, outlets who have time and again epitomized everything that is wrong with modern-day journalism.

In the same breath, Ravish also warns the Army that ‘news anchors’ are attempting to divide them on the basis of their religion.

It’s hard to find any news anchor who has attempted to divide the Army on the basis of religion. But Ravish praises The Caravan right after it committed the most atrocious sin of dividing martyrs on the basis of caste. Thus, it appears, according to Ravish, dividing the Army on the basis of religion is wrong but asking the families of martyrs “Kaun Jaat Ho?” while they are grieving is an example of path-breaking journalism. One runs out of words to describe the depth of moral depravity such people have sunk to.

It is a traditional liberal trope. They continuously express their desire for Hindus and Muslims to live peacefully, which we all want, but simultaneously, they do everything in their power to divide Hindus along the lines of caste. They won’t even spare the Army in their efforts to keep Hindus divided.

Another liberal trope is that they accuse their adversaries of the crimes they are guilty of themselves.

Was the ‘idea of information’ not compromised when liberal media ran a fictional narrative of rising intolerance based on the biased perception of Darbaris? Was it not compromised when liberal media ran a fictional narrative of ‘minorities under attack‘? If we are to believe Ravish, then of course not, because according to him, liberals have a monopoly over truth. Whatever they say and perceive must be regarded as objective truth. If you don’t take their word for it, then it’s only because you are morally inferior to them.

Hasn’t the media which publishes more lies than people on social media can counter legitimized falsehood? Hasn’t the entire Indian media which blamed ‘nationalism’ for Fake News on the basis of the Fake BBC research legitimized falsehood? The irony of it all was the fact that Ravish was accusing the Prime Minister of legitimizing falsehood at the event of a media outlet that is widely known to peddle the worst kind of Fake News.

As I have said before, in the world of liberalism, respect and credibility are not earned by hard work, honest research and an objective quest for truth. It’s earned by toeing the ‘party line’. It doesn’t matter if your conclusions are wildly off target and spread misinformation, if you toe the liberal line, liberals will fall at your feet and sing paeans to your credibility
