Journalist who likened Dalits to animals now compares Indian Army chief General Bipin Rawat to General Dyer, deletes tweet

The Tweet was, however, pulled down by the journalist, who again took to Twitter to notify this. But somehow the explanation he gave for deleting the tweet, which was in bad taste, especially for a highly decorated Army chief, could not be exactly categorised as an apology.

Freelance journalist Prashant Kanojia, who was once associated with the ultra-left wing propaganda site ‘The Wire’ and arrested by the Uttar Pradesh government for posting derogatory tweets about Gods, Goddesses and inflammatory posts on UP CM Yogi Adityanath has once again crossed all lines of decency. Going by his fixation, Kanojia took to Twitter to compare Indian Army Chief General Bipin Rawat with British General Reginald Dyer, infamous for Jallianwala Bagh massacre.

By Tweeting an image of General Bipin Rawat beside General Dyer, captioning it as Kashmir and Jallianwala respectively, Kanojia not only attempted to insinuate that General Rawat’s role in Kashmir is similar to that of Dyer, who had ordered the massacre in Jallianwala Bagh on April 13, 1919, when hundreds of civilians were killed including women and children, but also once again exhibited his mediocre mindset.

The Tweet was, however, pulled down by the journalist, who again took to Twitter to notify this. But somehow the explanation he gave for deleting the tweet, which was in bad taste, especially for a highly decorated Army chief, could not be exactly categorised as an apology.

SS of the post written by Kanojia after he deleted his previous Tweet

General Rawat, is a highly decorated officer, has a ten-year experience in high altitude warfare and counter-insurgency operations. He has been awarded for gallantry and distinguished service with the Param Vishisht Seva Medal, Ati Vishisht Seva Medal, Uttam Yudh Seva Medal, Yudh Seva Medal, Sena Medal, and Vishisht Seva Medal.

Navdeep Singh, a former military reservist and High Court lawyer called the tweet as “Cheap, loathsome, abhorrent, shameful”.

In June, Kanojia was arrested by UP police and a First Information Report (FIR) was registered against him at Hazratganj police station, under IPC section 500 and 66 IT Act, in which it was alleged that the accused made “objectionable comments against the CM and tried to malign his image”.

He had recently, taken a jibe at Senior Congress leader Jyotiraditya Scindia for daring to go against the party stand to root for India on Article 370. In his Tweet, the media troll who once equated Dalits to animals trolled Scindia and called his family a ‘British stooge’.
