Ira Trivedi is being forced to lie because the gravy train that rewarded anti-Hindu hate has finally come to an end

While earlier these views would have been rewarded, now, that gravy train that was monopolised by Left has come an end

Yoga instructor Ira Trivedi has been put in a desperate spot. After Doordarshan had announced a re-run of her Yoga programme, several of her anti-Hindu and downright hateful views on Hinduism had gone viral on social media. As a result, OpIndia had reported that the re-runs of her show had been pulled off the air by DD National vide an explicit ‘instruction’ and other DD channels had been sent an advisory against running her show.

After the brouhaha, Ira Trivedi had first tried to apologise and assert that she is deeply rooted in Hinduism. When that did not work, now, she has resorted to blatant lying.

Ira Trivedi took to Twitter to disown her own tweet where she had proclaimed that the Quran is a progressive text while modern Hinduism is regressive.

After hastily purging her Twitter account, Ira Trivedi is now attempting to convince people that the Tweet where she hailed the Quran as progressive and modern Hinduism as regressive, is a fake tweet. However, as it is said, the internet never forgets.

While Ira Trivedi uses a specific image to allege that there is no timestamp on the tweet, there are several images of here 2017 tweet where the time and date are clearly mentioned.

Further, several people pointed out to Ira Trivedi that the original tweet link also exists, though it now shows that the tweet has been deleted.

Others also pointed out that even if that tweet by Ira Trivedi was discounted, she has voiced similar anti-Hindu sentiments in other tweets and interviews of hers.

While Ira has chosen to lie and obfuscate after her views were exposed, one has to pause and wonder why Ira felt the need to do so.

Ira is the granddaughter of Congress leader and ex-union minister VC Shukla. He was the Information and Broadcasting Minister in the Indira Gandhi government and a close associate of former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi and her son Sanjay Gandhi. During his tenure, he was notorious for muzzling the press. He was the Congress leader who banned Kishor Kumar’s songs from AIR and Doordarshan.

It is not unknown that Ira has long held the views that she is now being called out for. The tweet of hers which she falsely claims is fake is from 2017 and several other tweets of hers which are far older. What is it that changed for her to defend herself to this extent, even if it meant lying blatantly?

It is rather evident that earlier, such malicious views that defamed the Hindu culture were not only tolerated but rather rewarded. In 2017, Ira had shot 60 episodes with Doordarshan. This was about the same time that she had propagated eating Beef and called modern Hinduism a regressive religion based on nothing but conjecture. She was then allowed to cash in on a practice that is deeply rooted in Hinduism itself – Yoga.

However, times have changed. While there are several discussions that have taken place on the merits and demerits of several practices across religions, Hindus have begun to push back against the constant and needless vilification of their religion. On the part of the establishment too, there seems to be an attitudinal change that is helping course correct.

Doordarshan categorically and unequivocally distanced themselves from Ira Trivedi after her views went viral.

The show by Ira Trivedi that was set to be aired on DD National was a re-run of previously recorded episodes and DD National was instructed to discontinue airing the re-runs of the show hosted by Ira Trivedi. Other Doordarshan channels were sent advisories to that effect.

The series that was hosted by Ira Trivedi was produced by Doordarshan Delhi as part of a series of different yoga programmes produced to highlight yoga prior to the International day of yoga in 2017. The series comprised of 60 episodes, the reruns of which have now been pulled off-air.

While earlier these views would have been rewarded, now, that gravy train that was monopolised by Left has come to an end, with Hindus not taking insults lying down and the establishment being more sensitive towards the needs of the majority and not just the minority sentiments.
