MS. BARKHA! NOTE WE HAVE A PRIME MINISTER THAT LEADS INDIA AND NOT A SERVANT OF A FAMILY
In Ramayana Lord Rama is said to have gone to his Guru Vasishta and knocked on the door. Guru Vasushta wants to know who it is.
Lord Rama replies "Me".
"Me who?" asks the Guru.
"I came here to know that" Lord Rama replies.
Compare this to the Asura King Ravvana Brahma. It is said he is a Brahma Jnani. More erudite than Lord Rama in Brahma Jnana. He tries to prove his supremacy, boasts of his devilish strength, his invincible boons granted by Lord Brahma (like UPA did to you) and refuses to offer a seat to Lord Hanuma. Unfazed Lord Hanuma makes His own seat with his tail and sits on a tad bit higher chair than Asura Ravana.
Ms. Barkha! The whole mythology of any nation, religion or faith is replete with stories of villians with Asura Pravritti (demonic attitude) who boast of their negative qualities more than their positive qualities. So, when you addressed a letter to our Prime Minister who is as humble as Lord Rama or as powerful as Lord Hanuma (you may mock :Lord Hanuma is a monkey, no issue, we too were as per Darwin,) , you called yourself proudly as Anti-National Sickular Presstitute" Barkha Dutt, I was not surprised. The demon in you makes you speak thus. The Madison Square mad Soul Seller infused this kind of negativism in a whole community of Journalists. Good for you, you now know who you you are and what values you stand for. If you wish to devalue yourself to score a minus point in your career, you are most welcome.
I reply to you not because there is anything substantive to be replied in your open letter to the Honorable Prime Minister but to show to the small world that reads this blog how hatred for a person perpetuates into hatred for the nation he heads and drives demons mad to the extent of helping nation's internal and external enemies. The whole mythology tells us stories of people like you. The whole fiction and drama speak of characters like you. Did not Cassius plot to kill Julius Caesar and Brutus too falls into the trap because sweet words that appeal to the basest senses in a human being have an immediate impact. When you guys flaunt lie after lie on your Media channels and some right thinking leaders or citizens fall prey to your sinister campaign, I always repeat in my heart, "U Tu Brute".Unfortunately for India, your relentless mudslinging has a salutary effect on the weak minded.
You say you are anguished for calling you names. Did you forget your no-holds-barred sinister campaign on the greatest statesman living today, the next best philosopher after Swamy Vivekananda, the one who only stands after Lord Buddha in his renunciation of material pleasures, the living Dr.Ambedkar who always said "Good for all, with all"(Sab Ke Saath, Sab Kaa Vikas)? You called him "Mass murderer", prompted a listless leader call him Maut Ka Saudagar. You encouraged demonic elements in Gujarat in the guise of NGOs who receive unaccounted funds to carry on your campaign.
It is good you have recalled 2002. As clouds cleared and Modi came out clean of all the negativism you spread, now you started another chapter in your "The Other Side of Media". A PM is not for single party but for the entire nation. That was what our PM told. Unfortunately you guys can not digest this fact as you are accustomed to toeing the line of a PM who worked for one family only (leave alone a party or nation). It is understandable. It was rumored that you also recommended to him who should be made Minister of which Department and he meekly accepted the recommendation because of your proximity to the family. And nation knows of all the scams that were perpetuated by these ministers. And it can be conjectured that you started the sinister campaign on the PM as you are paranoid that sooner than later the investigative agencies will be at your doorstep. So, the whole aim is to see that some pliable leader in BJP is made the PM. People are neither blind nor deaf, Ms. Barkha! In India, a sustained negative campaign on an individual, who people see as a savior from corruption, will generate immense mass sympathy for him and that is exactly happening today. 65% of any group surveyed give full marks to the PM.
You can not harp upon your past glory to drive home the point that you are salubrious in your body and soul. You mentioned Kargil and your affection for soldiers. Show me one Indian Nationalist who does not love our Soldiers. You say you have run many campaigns on OROP. Unfortunately, the same PM, who worked as first servant to a family accepted your recommendation to make a person as Minister of Communication did not consider your recommendation for OROP. Do you not think at least once that whole lakhs of crores of public money looted by this minister would have given OROP to not only soldiers but the entire community of government employees? I leave it to your guessing. I, however, do not consider you so clever as to decide on positive issues. Your brain works in the reverse.
The next paragraph has more sinister overtones. You project yourself as the sole patriot (while headlining your letter as Anti-National Barkha) in the country thus deriding the other news channels and their reporters. Ms. Barkha! Should we believe that you have love for other groups in defense of the nation when you cant defend your own clan? And what can Modi do if a Party Minister in a state places the photo of his leader on the coffin of a soldier? What can he do when a CM comes and sits on streets on dharna as in Delhi? Why do you think JNU is a fallout of Siachin? Do you deny Afzal Guru was sought to be eulogized in JNU? Was it not the highest court that awarded punishment to Guru? Did your Congress chelas not address him as Guru Jee even as they address the PM "Modi!".Are you not ashamed when terrorist is glorified? Is it not true soldiers, of whom you speak high, are sacrificing lives in the mindless violence of these groups? Did you, at least in one tweet, one word, one sentence condemn the heroic image given to Afzal in JNU. No! Why? Simply because it will dilute your anti-Modi campaign that you want to use to dislodge him so that some people can escape the noose that is tightening around their necks? I do not know if you too are one of them. But that your whole agenda is revolving around saving criminals is quite obvious to the observant minds.
You said the videos were doctored. Final word on this was not said. The Delhi police collected raw footage and sent for forensic tests. Do you not jump the gun again? In the case of Ishrath Jahan you ran a campaign that she was innocent until Headely burst your balloon the other day. Then you started saying that even if she was terrorist authorities were not right in killing her. You seem to have obliterated from your brains that a dangerous enemy must be crushed before he/she inflicts much bigger damage on civil society.
I still recall the sinister campaign you guys unleashed on Vajpayee Jee. Now, you conveniently take his name. In JNU rule of law was followed in letter and spirit. An FIR was booked on available evidence. A leader was arrested on that evidence. He was produced in a court on that evidence. Court accepted the evidence and sent him for custody. Other timid guys absconded from Law. Police dealt with him as per law. In the meantime you started questioning the evidence. It is not in your realm what kind of evidence police possesses. You continue to spread lie after lie and cry wolf at the drop of hat. Administration of justice is better left to police. If they are wrong courts will take care. You can not act as a criminal and as a Judge at the same time. Hope your long experience in spreading lies will not blur your view of the world and the laws of the world and nature.
Howsoever you try to defend the perpetrators of national hatred, it is clear that raising anti India slogans is sedition. This was doubly stressed by Rt.Hon. Santosh Hegde in no uncertain terms. You better stop chewing the rotten ideas time and again..If hundreds of JNU students marched on Delhi streets, tens of thousands of Delhi citizens, soldiers and retired soldiers too marched against them. Note these people are apolitical unlike the ultra left leaning JNU students who marched. Judge for yourself.
Your take on beef eating etc. is in your veins. You try to deflect attention from real truth by spreading canards. You must be knowing day after day your channel is losing sheen due to this. Even vernacular news papers and channels who were taking news from you channel are now shifting to Times Now and Zee News as they consider these channels more upright in news and views, not jaded nor jaundiced.As per your sermon that nationalism and patriotism is an individual choice, I only pity you. You were grown up in age and not wisdom. When a bull refuses to plough the land the farmer gives her an affectionate kick. For, the farmer knows well bulls hear kicks better than words. That is the law of nature. No other law can replace law of nature. Hope you get the point.
You say patriotism and nationalism are individual choices and each individual has a choice to choose his path. You ask any Naxalite. He says he is fighting out of patriotism. Is it not? As civilized citizen do you accept his kind of patriotism? Means should justify ends; not the other way. Why did Congress shun Netajee? Is it not on this simple argument. I leave it to your small brain to separate milk from water like a swan.
You want to be the advocate and Judge. Let courts acquit Kanhayya. If Government was wrong it would own up and apologize. All decisions of government may not be correct. And by saying that courts would acquit him, you tried to usurp the powers of judges and committed contempt. And note that you are, after all, one of the many journalists the country produced, a speck in the Media Ocean. It is your business to share news and not thrust your views. By trying to advise the present Prime Minister, you seem to have lost your mental balance and are still thinking that the family servant is the Prime Minister! Wake up and see reality. The nation changed a lot in two years. And before you realize, more changes will take place and rats like you, may not find a hole to hide yourselves.
