Travelling back to my erstwhile Karmabhoomi, Chennai was a great experience – it was a mixture of experiences. 5th Anniversary celebrations of a local Information Centre of Art of Living that would remain etched in my minds for a long long time, meeting a whole lot of friends, a giant leap on my career front were the highs. The lows had to follow to prove the universal law “Opposite Values Co-Exist” true and what a low these were.
Check this Editorial of “The Hindu” on 03rd October 2007
The All-knowing moral guardian in the Editor sits in Judgement while he says that Judges sometimes speak too much while this was exactly what was being done by this Editorial. While it is nobody’s case that Supreme Court Judge may or may not have over-reacted, even the parchment called “The Hindu” also speaks even more many a times. And speak worse .
Sample the examples, 2 instances are cited to buttress their hackneyed argument and not surprisingly both were related to BJP and clearly anti-majority. No one in this country calls and gets away with Bandhs and hartals more than communists in Kerala and this does not seem to find any attention to this Secularist Editor. While the people of Kerala have accepted bandhs/hartal as normal as their ablutions, quoting a single instance, read this
“For example, in recent years the Bharatiya Janata Party and the saffron brigade have called for, conducted, and got away with several attempted bandhs. A case in point is the August 27, 2007 Hyderabad bandh protesting against the terror strike at Lumbini Park and Gokul Chat. And what about other forms of protest actions? Will the Supreme Court rule on what kind of constitutional animal is a ‘rail roko,’ of the kind the BJP State unit staged in Hyderabad in September 2007 against the Sethusamudram project? Does it fall under the definition of a general strike or a hartal or a bandh? Is it constitutional? As political leaders have observed, the logical consequence of the Supreme Court’s unevenly implemented ban on bandhs will be a ban on all protest actions and the right to strike. If that happens, the highest court in the land will itself be responsible for the trampling on fundamental rights that its 1998 judgment warns against.”
So much for the unbiased reporting from the secularists of this great nation. Even worse, to prop up their mindless opinion, the whole lot of “Letters to the Editors” were filled with letters agains the Supreme Court Judgement, supposedly written by readers. Their funders apparently wanted to convey some message through this SECULAR MEDIA HOUSE. The anti-majority tirade resembles the Newhouses of China – only difference being that they are enslaved by the Party and in case of this great Newspaper by their Foreign Funders (I am sure it needs no mention as to which organization funds their operations and writes their editorials). Way to Go!!! At this rate, I am sure The Hindu will need to hire staff to write “Letters to the Editors” since readers are bound to move away from them in the absence of objectivity. Knowing the media industry from within, I know a thing or two about what I just wrote here. The only insitition that this citizenry of this great nation can safely bet on are the Courts and taking potshots should not be tolerated. Oh yes!!! Mr. Ram My faith in God more specifically Lord Ram has gone infinitely high – despite creeps of your kind (remember when you went into hiding apprehending arrest, so much for your bravery) this great Nation survived and would survive – I cant find a logical explanation apart from assuming some supernatural stuff is at play here. Do you need any more proof than this?
“The Hindu” is anything but Hindu. Jai Hind!!!
The picture is the one taken during a vacation that we took to Kerala (Holiday is a norm in this place, thanks to the hartals and bandhs)
