Chandrayaan 2: As the nation rallies behind ISRO, and prays for Vikram lander, ‘liberal’ hate spills over

Deriding the efforts of ISRO, the national emotions and mocking the Prime Minister who stood like a rock to support his scientist through every up and down are no doubt the workings of minds that know nothing but hatred and pettiness.

As the entire nation stood with ISRO to experience a spectacular journey of India’s first attempt to land at the lunar south pole, some petty individuals displayed their sheer negativity and arrogance over social media.

The long night and the next morning also showed that some individuals exist only to mock and pull others down at the very first opportunity.

Some people are so consumed with their hatred for PM Modi that for them, the hopes and efforts of a nation and the hard work of scientists involved do not hold any value at all. All they care about is exploiting every opportunity to criticise one man who they hate just because their political opinions do not match with his.

The BBC too, being true to its anti-India nature, was busy mocking India’s maiden attempt to land on the lunar surface. These are some of the cartoons that the BBC had run to mock India’s moon mission:

NDTV’s Pallava Bagla was heavily criticised for his arrogant and extremely rude behaviour towards a scientist in ISRO in the media room. While Bagla’s behaviour was called out by many people on social media, ‘journalist’ Sadanand Dhume defended his action. Surprisingly, even Barkha Dutt called him out and slammed Dhume for defending sheer arrogance and rudeness.

Some individuals were so blind with hatred that even the emotions of a man who has nurtured the Chandrayan Mission like his own child were mocked and criticised. ISRO chief K Sivan was consoled in a heartwarming hug by PM Modi but a former Congress IT cell troll saw it as ‘childish’ and ‘idiotic’.

The Chandrayan-2 mission has had a billion-plus Indians pray, hope and rejoice in our nation’s glory and our scientists’ efforts. The fact that we lost communication with Vikram lander and were unable to land on the lunar south pole the way we expected to cannot take away the fact that for a maiden effort it was commendable and a remarkable achievement to have made it up to 2.1 km of moon’s surface.

ISRO has a Chandrayan orbiter successfully circling the moon that will keep sending us images and data for a whole year. Deriding the efforts, the national emotions and mocking the Prime Minister who stood like a rock to support his scientist through every up and down are no doubt the workings of minds that know nothing but hatred and pettiness.
