‘Secular’ media portal The Quint and its headlines during Hindu festivals and Ramzan

The Quint is only following a well-established pattern in India where celebrations during Hindu festivals are discouraged while during non-Hindu festivals, it is encouraged.

it comes as no surprise that Leftist propaganda portal The Quint is Hinduphobic. We have seen it time and again. Their Hinduphobia is only overshadowed by the kiddy gloves their wear while dealing with Islam.

As Ramzan starts today, The Quint decided to tell its readers about the benefits of While for fasting and what it does for one’s well-being.

While The Quint decided to tell its readers that fasting during the month of Ramzan is as good as physical exercise for the brain, for Navratri, The Quint wasn’t really sure whether it has any positive effects or not judging by the text they used to share their video. The video itself wasn’t Hinduphobic. It spoke of fasting and how Indians at large ensure that it is healthy. With reference to Navaratris, it said that the diet taken by fasting Hindus is a dieticians dream. However, one has to wonder why it had to use a headline that clearly has a negative connotation to get its readers to click on the video.

One recalls The Quint’s article during the Hindu festival of Holi where they opinioned that playing Holi is the stepping stone to Hindu terror.

At the same time, during Eid, The Quint wrote about how a video was helping mend relationships.

While during Eid, The Quint spoke of mending broken relationships, during Holi, kids playing Holi became a precursor to Hindu terror.

Their pandering doesn’t just stop at Islamic festivals. The Quint had no issues glorifying a terrorist like Osama Bin Laden by calling him a brother and father.

In their blatant Hinduphobia, The Quint actually misreported a story blatantly too.

Satire as a form of humour is not something everyone gets. In their mad rush to mock “Hindutva trolls” who had called for a ban on Surf Excel following their Holi ad which spoke of ‘communal harmony’, media houses mistook satirical comments for actual ones.

Many publications reported that ‘offended’ by the new Surf Excel ad, ‘Indians’ (The Quint used the word ‘patriotic‘ in its URL) and ‘trolls’ had mistakenly downrated and left negative reviews for Microsoft Excel. Except, at least some of these comments which were included as being left by ‘trolls’ were actually satirical.

The question thus remains, why are leftist portals intrinsically anti-Hindu? While today, during Ramzan, The Quint had no qualms in openly endorsing fasting, why did they during Navratris use a headline that left much to the imagination? Why would they use a headline that would make someone believe that the video is actually against fasting on Navratri?

Something similar happened today when Rahul Pandita, a journalist shared the hypocrisy of The Quint and a Quint employee responded that the video was actually not Hinduphobic at all.

However, any media organisation puts great thought into the kind of headline that they use considering it is almost an established fact that most people decide what the content of the article might be based on the headline. Why then would The Quint deliberately mislead people with its cryptic headline?

The answer is rather simple. Hinduphobia sells and especially, in the Left-Liberal world. Bashing Hindus has almost become an art form and a stairway to stardom with the left. While this particular video of The Quint might have spoken of fasting across religious spectrums, The Quint has displayed blatant Hinduphobia in the past and now, it is evident that Hinduphobia too is being used as a marketing tool by left-leaning portals for their core audience that evidently, loathe Hindus.
