The Wire traces and ‘hunts down’ Muslim women who support Modi, call them ‘RSS-backed’

The Wire in a bid to invalidate women Muslim supporters of Modi trace them down to verify whether they are indeed Modi supporters

Propaganda website The Wire has outdone itself. In a bid to discredit Muslim women who support Narendra Modi, The Wire journalist tracked down profiled the women who gave sound bytes to news agencies and channels.

In its article published on 18th May, The Wire writes about the Muslim women who are Modi supporters and describes them as being part of an organisation that have ‘RSS support’.

The fact that the women help out other Muslim women who have been victims of triple talaq, who come to them is overshadowed in the article by the fact that the organisation these women are part of has ‘RSS support’. The journalist quotes news feed by news agency ANI and insinuates that ANI does not put out a disclaimer that the Muslim women are part of the organisation that is supported by RSS as if that somehow invalidates the causes they are fighting for.

After the BJP swept Uttar Pradesh state assembly elections, the journalist went to mohallas in Varanasi where these Muslim women were reported to be celebrating only to report ‘fear and anxiety’ and a sombre mood. During run-up to these elections, too, the same journalist went looking for the same Muslim women (a phrase she puts in quotes to suggest that these Muslim women perhaps do not exist) where a local reporter then directed her to the Muslim women who confirmed that they are indeed Muslim, women and support Modi and even have fatwas on their head for their political views.

But what gets the journalist’s goat is that these women are part of organisations that are supposedly backed by the RSS. That they are getting threats from individuals and militant group for speaking up in favour of Modi and against triple talaq and are alienated by their own family means nothing only because they are ‘RSS-backed’.

This is the same propaganda website which rationalises terrorism and whitewashes the 1993 Mumbai bomb blasts and publishes an article which reads like a Hurriyat press statement.
