The anti-CAA protests in Mumbai saw many prominent faces from the Bollywood show up as they seek to increase their following by joining the bandwagon over a bill they have no knowledge about. ‘Activist’ Medha Patkar of the Narmada Bachao Andolan fame too decided to join the protest in Delhi. However, the Pakistani Hindu in a show of strength forced her to leave as they dared her to show them if she could survive in Pakistan.

Medha Patkar has made a name for herself by shamelessly joining every protest that is against Prime Minister Modi. So when Patkar joined the anti-CAA rally in Delhi she expected it to be a cakewalk. However, Pakistani Hindus served her a timely reminder of the atrocities faced by them as they forced her to abandon her anti-CAA protest. The refugees from Pakistan confronted Patkar by asking her to go to Pakistan and see if she can survive there.
The agitated crowds urged Medha to go and live in Pakistan to understand the ground realities. The crowd later broke into pro-Modi chants seeing which Patkar started the slogans in the name of Mahatma Gandhi.
The nation yesterday witnessed anti-CAA protests in major cities of the country which grabbed the media eyeballs. However, hardly any mainstream media has shown the visuals of pro-CAA protests which also took place across the country. Pro-CAA chants reverberated from the Delhi University and Chandigarh. While the media focus in Mumbai was at the August Kranti Maidan where the flag of the Communist Party of India was also waved – a clear sign that the protest was manufactured by the opposition parties. The media decided to give a miss to the pro-CAA rally which took place in CST.
Patkar who rose to fame by her hollow objections to the Sardar Sarovar Dam is by no means an activist. She contested the parliament seat of Mumbai North-East in 2014 on an Aam Aadmi Party ticket but lost the election. She recently courted controversy as she compared Narmada to a prostitute. Patkar complained that several private firms were abusing the river like a vaishya (prostitute). She alleged that the state government was supplying 172 crore litres of river water to private firms every day.
The name of Mian Mithu sends shivers down the spine of every Pakistani Hindu as he has abducted 117 Hindu girls, forcefully converted them and subsequently sold and married off to Muslim men. From 23% at the time of Partition, Hindus constitute around 5-6% of the total population today and will continue to decline as Pakistan attempts to displace whatever little Hindu population which is there in the country as they attempt to make Pakistan a complete Islamic nation.
Patkar was served a timely reality check as the Pakistani Hindus showed her the mirror.
