That the western media is deeply Hinduphobic is no secret. The Washington Post, New York Times etc have time and again come up with opinion pieces and even distorted reports to deride Hindus. Now Furkan Khan, a producer from NPR, National Public Radio which is a USA based media organisation, has displayed her true colours and used the language used by the Pulwama terrorist against Hindus.
Furkan Khan took to Twitter to assert that if Indians give up Hinduism, they will be solving most of their problems ‘what with all the piss drinking and dung worshipping’.
Calling Hindus ‘cow piss drinkers’ or ‘dung worshippers’ is a common insult used by Islamists to deride Hinduism. In the video released by the Jaish-e-Muhammad terror outfit following the attack on the CRPF convoy that killed 40 CRPF personnel, expressing his unmitigated hatred for Hindus, Dar had justified their killings by calling them ‘infidels’ and ‘cow piss drinkers‘.
Using the same language as the Pulwama terrorist to justify killing CRPF personnel, Khan derided Hindus and said that Indians should give up Hinduism to solve all their problems.
What followed next was widespread outrage at the hatred displayed by Furkan and shoddy excuses given by her to defend herself.
Once her hateful tweet went viral, her tweets from the past where she had displayed her Hinduphobia were dug up by Twitterati to show that she was a habitual offender.

In one of her old tweets, she can be seen saying that the Kashmiri Hindus who were raped, killed and driven out of their homes in Kashmir owing to Islamic terrorism were merely ‘collateral damage’ and that giving it a Hindu-Muslim colour is incorrect. She is perhaps unaware of the slogans that were raised from mosques asking Hindu men to leave Kashmir and leave their women behind for Islamic barbarians.
Her hatred was also apparent when during an argument with Kashmiri journalist Rahul Pandita and while peddling her agenda regarding Kashmir, Furkan referred to the genocide of Kashmiri Hindus as ‘migration’. When questioned, she nonchalantly said that ‘she was not born then’.
After the outrage against her Hinduphobia, Furkan proceeded to delete her original tweet where she wanted Indians to give up Hinduism and gave a shoddy explanation for it.
When caught on the wrong foot, Furkan first defended herself by chalking up her tweet to ‘sarcasm’ and also said that ‘trolls’ were missing the context. One does wonder what ‘context’ could justify her continued Hinduphobia and her speaking the language of terrorists.
She then deleted her tweet saying that she did not want to be ‘misrepresented’.
One does wonder how Furkan could have been misrepresented considering her tweet was rather clear. She had asked Indians to give up Hinduism to solve their issues. Not only that, but she had also called Hindus people who consume ‘cow piss’. If she was not a Hinduphobic, Islamist bigot, she would not have used those words, to begin with.
However, after hours of outrage, Furkan Khan tendered a shoddy apology for her bigotry.
Interestingly, after brazening it out and blaming ‘trolls’ for misinterpreting her, she issued a half hearted apology and declared that she will be ‘off Twitter for a while’.
This is considered a classic tactic of thee ‘liberals’. After their general Hinduphobic rants and blaming ‘trolls’, they go off Twitter for a while till the steam blows off and they can be back to spread their propaganda.
Furkan Khan’s mindset can also be judged by her Instagram profile where she displays her Hinduphobic and anti-India tendencies.
In one of her posts, she publishes the photograph of a wall in Kashmir that hails slain terrorist Burhan Wani and says that the ‘writing is on the wall’.
She concocts a scenario where ‘machine guns’ is blaring even though the police and security forces have categorically said that not a single live bullet has been fired in Kashmir since the lockdown and abrogation of Article 370.
With such hatred for India and Hindus, one does wonder how she can assert that she had no intention of insulting Hindus with her Tweet.
As the clamour to have NPR take action against their bigoted producer grows, one wonders if the American portal which is known for its Left bias is going to act against the blatant bigotry of its journalist.
