The silence from the self-proclaimed crusaders of free speech and justice during West Bengal protests is deafening

Perhaps when there is actually an Emergency-like situation and one does fear speaking up against the power, the self-proclaimed crusaders of free-speech and justice are the first to meekly look the other side.

Bengal is facing an unprecedented crisis after Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee threatened the junior doctors and others of the medical fraternity and politicized the protests by doctors following the heinous attack on doctors and interns at NRS Hospital after an 85-year-old patient Mohammed Sayeed died of natural causes.

Junior doctors have been agitating since Tuesday after two of their colleagues were attacked and seriously injured at the NRS Medical College and Hospital in Kolkata. Mass resignations are occurring across hospitals in West Bengal by doctors who believe the situation was “not ideal” for patient care service.

However, when the state is gripped in a deadlock, there is a deafening silence from the mainstream media which is usually quick to condemn and go hammer and tongs after the state or central government at slightest situation of law and order in the BJP-ruled states.

Senior journalist and self-proclaimed Nehru fan-girl Sagarika Ghose tweeted a token tweet and expressed her shock questioning Mamata why the perpetrators are not brought to task.

However, abusive troll masquerading as a journalist Swati Chaturvedi has chosen to use this moment as well as post-poll violence in Bengal to cook up conspiracy theories that this atmosphere is being created to impose President’s Rule in Bengal.

No wonder our sources say that her sources are imaginary.

Journalist Rana Ayyub who still seems to be reeling under the aftereffect of 2019 general elections results, especially with BJP MP Amit Shah becoming Home Minister is still analysing the elections while enjoying her vacation in Athens.

Congress party still seems to be dissecting and analysing the results and trying to figure out what went wrong. So much that their party president Rahul Gandhi also has maintained stoic silence on the crisis in Bengal. Aam Aadmi Party supremo and Delhi Chief Minister who usually is the first to tweet on any and every thing from giving live updates on CBI raids in his office to issuing sermons to his ministers, has not taken time out to ask Didi to take care of the law and order situation in her state. Others like former AAP member and senior advocate Prashant Bhushan, who quickly takes to Twitter to spread fake news has also remained silent on the madness in Mamata’s Bengal.

Perhaps when there is actually an Emergency-like situation and one does fear speaking up against the power, the self-proclaimed crusaders of free-speech and justice are the first to meekly look the other side.
