The secular-outrage launched after the Kathua incident asking all Hindus to be ashamed for a rape which still remains to be investigated thoroughly has now taken a back burner after another reported rape incident in a Madarasa. Strangely nobody is asking the community in question to feel ashamed; one may wonder why.
Now the secular journalists tried to highlight the teary homecoming of Kafeel Khan and again asked us to be ashamed. It’s the same beguiling secular journalists who failed to find shame during the release of Col. Purohit, or for that matter the same tragedy at Gorakhpur’s BRD Medical college for which Dr Rajeev Mishra and Dr Satish are still in jail. Why this bias?

The answer is relatively simple: Narrative! The only aim of the beguiling secular journalists is building a narrative to fit their agenda. The main rhetoric right now is that minorities are in danger, and that the current government is apparently, in some way, promoting these acts against minorities, whether it be Kafeel Khan or the poor child who was the victim in the horrid Kathua rape. Nobody in the news seems to be bothered as to why one accused got bail and the others continue to be in jail! They might be innocent too, and nobody seems to be asking what is happening with their families. We can only hope that their letters also make it to social media and national news, just as there are calls for us to be ashamed about the imprisonment of Kafeel Khan.
A common man believes in the judiciary, and we are not “secular baits” for victim-hood or shame. We are upright citizens of the country who still want to know why the secular journalists fail to shed tears or be ashamed for putting an army man in jail? Is it because he was jailed when the ruling party was Congress?
While the courts are still to deliver the verdict, we shall wait for these secular vultures to fly over and the clouds to clear to see the real picture for ourselves. Till then we shall outrage and call them out for their bias, hypocrisy and convenient narrative building.
Truth be told, we the people of India are the true victims of their selective and biased journalism, which is used as a weapon to divide opinion and present a false narrative to the simple minded citizens of the nation. We are victims because we have been fooled one too many times by these people who build narratives that fit their agenda, while the cameras focus on the placard holding pseudo-activists. We are the victims of their “whataboutery” because they ask questions only when it suits them. We are the victims of their anti-secular ideology which has poisoned not only the media but also our educational institutions which they use as their breeding grounds. The minority-ism is appalling and their cries of victim-hood can only remind one of the “boy who cried wolf” story. “Ye barsaati mendhak hain” and their “Trr Trr” of victimisation and “shame shame” doesn’t work anymore. We are the victims and we refuse to be silent anymore.
