Chandauli fake ‘hate crime’: ABP News quietly deletes fake report, usual suspects continue to lie that Muslim boy was set on fire for not chanting Jai Shri Ram

ABP News has removed the story without any apology or clarification. Despite multiple people pointing it out to them, the propagandists continue to spread falsehood.

Last evening, Chandauli Police through its social media accounts had clarified that the Muslim boy who claimed that he was set on fire for refusing to chant ‘Jai Shri Ram’ is incorrect. In fact, the police talked to an eyewitness who claimed that he saw the Muslim boy set himself on fire in a dargah (maazar). His burnt clothes and a slipper was also found from the dargah.

However, the usual suspects, sensing an opportunity to not let facts get in the way of agenda, quickly proceeded to exploit the situation by giving a communal flair to this wanton attempt of self-immolation.

Habitual fake news peddler, Ashok Swain, who proclaims himself to be a ‘professor’ and whose unmitigated hatred for Hinduism knows no boundary posted a denigrating tweet casting the spiritual chants of ‘Jai Shri Ram’ in the bad light and asserting that the victim was set on fire by Hindutva goons for his refusal to chant ‘Jai Shri Ram’.

However, taking cognisance of the misleading tweet posted by Swain, the official twitter handle of Chandauli police called out the lies spread by Swain and asked him to RT the correct version of the event. Swain, so far, hasn’t apologised yet for his mendacious tweet, nor has he deleted the misleading tweet.

In fact, the ABP News tweet which Swain has tweeted itself has been deleted. ABP News has now deleted the article as well. ABP News has not published another report with Chandauli Police’s version that the boy was allegedly lying.

Swain not only chose to ignore the UP police’s tweet busting his deceitful lies, but he also disregarded Twitter users who called out his perversity.

On being informed about the truth, Swain preferred to block the people who acquainted him with the truth than to pull down his misleading tweet that had the potential of inciting communal conflagration.

Another incorrigible liberal lodestar, known for being a chronic hatemonger and habitual fake news peddler, the Wire journalist, Arfa Khanum Sherwani, also gave credence to the fake news of a teenager being set on fire on his refusal to chant “Jai Shri Ram”. Here too, Sherwani displayed a total disregard of journalistic ethics of verifying the news with the particular police station before putting out her tweet.

It shows the judiciary in the bad light when its ambassadors indulge in sharing fake news that has the potential of disrupting law and order situation in the country. Prashant Bhushan, a Supreme Court advocate, also promulgated the fake news of teenager being set on fire for refusing to chant “Jai Shri Ram” on his social media pages.

However, this is not the first time that the advocate has brought disreputation to the apex court. There has been a litany of incidents when Bhushan has perversely lied which have been documented extensively. The link Bhushan has shared is the same ABP News link that Swain had shared. ABP News has now removed the article from its website.

ABP News has removed the story without any apology or clarification. Despite multiple people pointing it out to them, the propagandists continue to spread falsehood.

If recent incidents are to be considered, a concerted attempt is being made by the liberals to denigrate the spiritually edifying chants of “Jai Shri Ram” by relegating it to a war cry used by unruly mobs baying for the blood of Muslim individuals. A few days back, the Aurangabad police had demystified how Sheikh Aamer had faked “forced chants of Jai Shri Ram” to feign victimhood.

Similarly, another incident from Aurangabad had come to the fore where the victim had filed a false report claiming he was stopped and intimidated by a gang of 10 people to chant ‘Jai Shri Ram’. His saviours, however, claimed that the altercation happened due to a personal feud and the victim was not made to chant ‘Jai Shri Ram’.
