Congress, AAP leaders to Activists and journalists follow this troll who advocates throwing dead body of a 90-yr-old Modi supporter in gutter

Among his followers, are 'activist' Harsh Mandar who has often been caught peddling lies, even during the anti-CAA riots, and was a part of Sonia Gandhi's NAC, self-proclaimed fact-checking website Alt News' co-founder and Congress leader Sanjay Jha, among several other AAP functionaries.

The “liberal” hate against anyone who supports Prime Minister Modi or believes in an ideology opposite to “Left Liberalism” is not unknown. The ‘secular’ politicians, activists and even journalists have often mainstreamed and normalised such vicious hate. One recalls that the Pulwama terrorist had released a video where he said he wanted to kill all ‘cow piss drinkers’, referring to Hindus. That openly bigoted pejorative too has been normalised by the intellectual class that has now started hating Hindus in their quest to hate Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

In a similar shocker, a hateful troll who wants “Sanghis to be thrown in the gutter” has been normalised by the very intellectual class that had normalised terrorists like Burhan Wani and even Adil Ahmad Dar.

The troll, Amit Behara, posted a terribly hateful comment to an individual who merely said that his 90-year-old maternal grandfather watches Zee News and calls himself a proud Bhakt (A supposedly pejorative used by the Left to demean supporters of the Prime Minister).

To that, Behara commented that when his 90-year-old grandfather dies, he should “throw him in the gutter” and tell his kids why he threw him in the gutter. The comment inspired disgust from various quarters on Twitter with people mostly connecting his despicable conduct to how ‘tolerant’ self-proclaimed liberals are.

Once Behara started getting called out, he started posting even more genocidal and hateful content against Hindus.

An older tweet by Defence Analyst Abhijit Iyer Mitra also started getting noticed where he had exposed this troll for the venom he harbours. In the screenshots posted by Iyer, Behara was seen hoping for a slow, painful death for leaders like Arun Jaitley. He had also spoken about how he would celebrate those deaths.

This venomous, genocidal and habitual troll has been normalised by several people in power who otherwise exalt themselves to be the paragons of virtue. Some prominent people, politicians and journalists follow this troll who wishes slow, painful death upon people and wants Hindus to be thrown in the gutter for their views.

Among the people who follow this troll is Nitin Pai who is the Director of Takshashila Institution and also a columnist with Left publications. Journalist Salil Tripathi and bigot Sudheendra Kulkarni.

Amit Behara seems to be a habitual offender who not only gets abusive but also says criminally insane things to people who don’t believe in the same ideology as him.

The fact that prominent people not only from political parties like Congress and AAP but also media publications are legitimising this troll only goes to show the deep malaise that the people who scream the most about ‘intolerance’ actually harbour against anyone who doesn’t agree with them.

This phenomenon of political parties and journalists supporting vicious trolls is not new. One recalls how Congress supporting abusive troll Sanjukta Basu had claimed that the Pulwama terror attack by Jaish-e-Mohammad which claimed lives of 44 soldiers, could be an inside job carried out on behest of Prime Minister Modi owing to ‘criminal-politician nexus’. Sanjukta, in a bid to toe to the party line, had even gone on a sexist, abusive rant against ANI’s Editor, Smita Prakash, after Rahul Gandhi slyly referred to as ‘pliable journalist’ for her interview with Prime Minister Modi.

In fact, the then Congress President Rahul Gandhi had a social media outreach where he met his supporters including Abhishek Mishra, who was recently arrested for spreading fake news.
