The leftist propaganda portal, The Wire, published an article written by Delhi University professor, Apoorvanand on May 9 in which the author has called “Jai Shri Ram” slogan an expression of hooliganism.
Apporvanand, in his article, extended support to the bizarre incident when West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee had referred to ‘Jai Shri Ram’ chants as abuses hurled at her.
He further went on to insult the Prime Minister of India by calling him an ‘instigator’. Such strong is the hate that Apporanand fails to remember that while insulting the PM he is also disregarding India’s most eminent position of authority.
Moreover, the professor in his hatred went a step ahead and referred to Veteran BJP leader LK Advani as a ‘bahurupiya’ (imposter). He opinioned that ‘Jai Shri Ram’ slogans were used as a political narrative by BJP to create Muslim hatred amongst the Hindus.
‘Jai Shri Ram’ is a cultural slogan. Since long, it has been a manner of greeting each other for Hindus, along with another variant ‘Jai Siya Ram’. Calling the slogan provocative or a sign of hooliganism just depicts the shallow ethos these so-called liberals adhere to.
However, Apoorvanand is not the only one peddling such spiteful hypothesis against Hindus and the right-wingers. Propagandist MK Venu, in his recent article for The Wire, had justified Mamata Banerjee’s reign of violence calling ‘aggressive’ chants of ‘Jai Shri Ram’ provocative.
Similarly, the founding editor of The Wire has also mongered a similar theory. He had opined that Prime Minister Modi greeting people with ‘Jai Shri Ram’ at his rallies is a ‘corrupt practice’.
Though it would be utter naivete to expect anything else from The Wire’s founding editor and contributors, they are, however, not the only ones. The entire liberal circle are, in fact, troubled greatly by Hindus coming under one banner.
It is quite astounding that all the while as liberals sing paeans for unity and harmony, they try every trick under the sun to keep Hindus divided. If Hindus of all hues find common ground under Shri Rama, then its unity that is the problem according to liberals.
This Hinduphobia runs so deep that liberals consider the slightest overt display of Hinduism to be a corrupt practice, provocative and a sign of hooliganism.
