Blatant Hinduphobia: Journalist mocks rituals by suggesting Hindu priests should be boiled alive

This is not the first time that Pooja has displayed his blatant Hindu hate.

News surfaced yesterday the Someshwara temple in Bengaluru was conducting a ritual, praying for a better Monsoon season this year. In the photographs tweeted by ANI, one can see the ritual being performed and two priests performing the ritual sitting in a large vessel full of water.

A journalist with Republic TV attempted to mock the ritual by making shocking and inhuman comments. Pooja Prasanna, a journalist with Republic TV took to Twitter to assert that perhaps “putting those vessels on a burner will get us rains faster and for longer”. She then asked if the Bengaluru temple will try that too.

Essentially, Pooja not only displayed her utter disdain for the faith of others but also said that the priests should be burnt or cooked alive for exercising their faith in peace and privacy.

This is not the first time that Pooja has displayed his blatant Hindu hate.

Earlier, she had taken potshots, supposedly at Sadhvi Pragya who she calls a ‘terror accused’. Interestingly, being a journalist, Pooja Prasanna never realised that Sadhvi had been given a clean chit by the NIA. She also seems to be blind to the Hindu terror bogey that was maliciously created by Congress for own selfish electoral gains.

She also insinuated that Hindus cheer for religious violence furthering the faulty narrative of ‘dara hua musalman’.

While she peddles her anti-Hindu narrative today and gets sensitive when someone talks about Eid, she had earlier also toed the line of asking people to be sensitive to dogs during Diwali.

She had also in the past tacitly approved of the Congress’ plank of giving Lingayat’s their separate religion.

And accused the ‘right-wing’ of intolerance, a bogey that was debunked long ago.

This is not the first time that journalists have displayed their anti-Hindu bias. Earlier, Rana Ayyub, a known bigot had drawn a false equivalence between convicted terrorist Yasin Bhatkal and Sadhvi Pragya and a Hindustan Times journalist had linked Hindu festivals to Nathuram Godse.

Pooja Prasanna, and for that matter any individual is free to disagree with any ritual and express their dislike for it. But stating that two priests practising their faith without causing harm to anyone should be boiled alive is taking it a bit too far.
