Rana Ayyub gets rattled and displays her hypocrisy after Bhupendra Chaubey refers to Aligarh murderers as ‘Muslim men’

According to the seemingly hypocritical standards exhibited by Rana Ayyub, citing religion of the assaulters is kosher if the victim belongs to the minority group.

Controversial journalist Rana Ayyub, who recently had a prolonged meltdown on Twitter after PM Modi-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) registered an emphatic victory in the recently concluded Lok Sabha elections and after Amit Shah was appointed with the Home Ministry portfolio appeared visibly rattled as one of her fellow journalists invoked religion of the perpetrators of ghastly murder of a 2.5 year old Tina in the town of Aligarh.

A perturbed Rana called out the journalist for invoking the faith of the murder accused and slammed the journalist for peddling his agenda over brutal, heartwrenching murder of an innocent toddler.

Journalist Bhupendra Chaubey had expressed shock over the brutality of ‘Muslim Men’ in the Aligarh incident which has shaken the entire country to its core. The tweet by Bhupendra has not been deleted.

Zahid, the principal accused along with Aslam had strangled Tina Sharma to death for a paltry loan of Rs 10,000. Her body was kept hidden in Zahid’s house for 3 days until the body started emitting odour, after which he dumped it in the trash of pile. When her body was recovered, her eyes were gouged out and arm amputated. The post-mortem report was inconclusive whether a sexual assault had happened on her or not.

However, Rana who pompously censured Chaubey for citing religious identity of the perpetrators had herself insinuated the assaulters who had raped a nun in Bengal of being supporters of RSS espousing the ideology of Hindutva. Rana had mentioned in her article how the RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat and Subramanian Swamy’s utterances have acted as a catalyst for their supporters to attack the minorities. Towards the end, Rana alludes that the attack on the nun was not by the infiltrating Bangladeshis but by the followers of the RSS.

It was later found out that the attack was indeed carried out by a Bangladeshi infiltrator and not by the ‘indoctrinated’ youths of the Hindutva fronts. There is a pattern in this. Many liberals, including Rana Ayyub, blame RSS and malign Hindus for any untoward incident that happens in the country. Even when journalist Gauri Lankesh was murdered, these liberals quickly sprung into action alleging that RSS supporters and Hindutva followers have committed her murder.

In another instance, when a minor girl was raped in Kathua, the same Rana Ayyub endorsed an article which equated plotters of Kathua rape case to millions of Hindus who want to see India as a Hindu Rashtra. Rana had no qualms then in sharing and endorsing an article that likened millions of Hindus to the Kathua rapists just because the victim was a minor Muslim girl.

According to the seemingly hypocritical standards exhibited by Rana Ayyub, citing religion of the assaulters is kosher if the victim belongs to the minority group. But, If the assaulters are from a minority community, their religious identities have no role to play in the depravity of the act committed by them.

The stark dichotomy displayed by Rana Ayyub in her duplicitous stand vis-a-vis victims’ religions. Hindus, RSS and Hindutva groups can be named and shamed, held responsible for any unfortunate incident that occurred against the minorities even before the police investigation commences but if the perpetrators belong to minority communities, mentioning their religion becomes akin to “peddling of agenda and exploiting the tragedy”.
