Anti-BJP accounts on social media, including Huffpost, Scroll journalist, celebrate death of Manohar Parrikar

Manohar Parrikar passed away on 17th March evening after a prolonged illness

As the sad news of passing away of Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar came in, social media was filled with condolence messages from people in every spectre of life, from politicians to celebrities to ordinary netizens, irrespective of their political affiliation. Manohar Parrikar was known for his simplicity and no-nonsense attitude, and most people expressed their genuine grief to the tragic news.

But that was not true for all people, as many people on Social media seemed to celebrate the death of BJP leader. And obviously, these comments came from such people who oppose the political ideology of BJP.

As can be seen in such messages shared on Social Media, many people reacted to the sad news with celebratory Emoticons, indicating they are happy with the news.

Some people chose to use the occasion to insult Indian culture, and mocked Parrikar for seeking treatment in “Christian West” instead of taking help of Hindutva.

It is not that only ordinary people were celebrating the death of Parrikar, even some journalists also joined the celebrations. For example, the above tweets are from Lindsay Pereira, who is a journalist and writes for left-liberal portals line Huffington Post, Scroll etc.

Some people openly declared that anyone who joins BJP is ‘Hindutva Thug’, and actually slammed others for condolence messages reacting to the sad news.

Such insensitive people also used the occasion to repeat the lie of Rahul Gandhi that Manohar Parrikar had files of the Rafale deal in his bedroom.

In an attempt to stall the Rafale deal, Rahul Gandhi didn’t even spare an ailing Manohar Parrikar, and had claimed that Parrikar told him that he had Rafale files in his bedroom when Rahul Gandhi went to meet him. Congress had even published one fake audio claiming that one Goa minister had told a journalist that Parrikar had claimed to have the files, which was refuted by the minister and the Congress party had refused to authenticate the tapes. Despite not being able to authenticate the audio, Rahul Gandhi continues to drag Manohar Parrikar’s name in his baseless allegations against the Rafale deal.

People can be opposed to other people on the basis of political ideologies, but exposing their hate on the occasion of the death of a political leader show how low the political discourse can go, which is definitely a worrying sign for the society.
