Ever since Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated the newly developed Kashi Vishwanath corridor on December 13, the Islamo-leftist cabal has been up and arms about it. Now, putting on an incredibly convincing act, one Naushad Alam, a tourist who supposedly travelled from Kolkata, West Bengal to Varanasi to perform namaz at the Gyanvapi mosque has laid bare his pain. Interviewed by a UP Aajtak reporter named Sushma Pandey, who supposedly gathered the mob of skull-cap wearing Muslims for a vox pop, the individual in question starts with his sob story. Alam one of the muslim, iterates, that he is in pain after coming to Gyanvapi mosque for performing his namaz.
He states, “I don’t understand the situation here. They have hidden the mosque and the mandir is made in such a grand manner. What is this? I am a tourist here. I can see the things, I feel the pain, you know,”
When asked whether he thinks the entire mosque is hidden, Alam, on cue showed his dark side. Seething with anger, he leaned towards the anchor and remarked, “Can’t you see? Can you see the mosque? I am from Kolkata, I feel the pain. I cannot tolerate it. How can you all just hide the facts. You all should see what is going on. It is not tolerant. People are misguided.”
I am in pain: Alam
Continuing his monologue, Alam said, “Constitution grants equal rights, can you suppress one’s rights? Is this right?”. He said that he was visiting for the first time and offered namaz for the first time in the mosque. “I am in pain and in my 40 years, I have never been this pained,”
Showing that he was from one of the most sophisticated and intellectual parts of the country which produces poverty porn economists, Alam expounded his pain in English, albeit broken but English nevertheless.
Watching Alam getting emotional and shedding tears, the empath in Sushma Pandey gave him a hand. Ms Pandey grazed her hands over the shoulder of Alam and consoled him. She said, “Stay, don’t go, don’t feel stressed” and asked “So, you believe there is only one-sided development here?’
To which, Alam speaking for Hindus rightfully remarked, “Leave development, someone’s right is being suppressed,”
Indeed Alam is right, as Hindus and their belief were trampled and suppressed by Aurangzeb when he constructed an eyesore Gyanvaapi mosque in the compounds of Kashi Vishwanath.
Shoving the Hindu passerby away
However, the empathy shown by the anchor quickly went for a toss when a Hindu local passed by, seeing the crocodile tears started to put his version forward. Sensing that her narrative was being spoiled, Ms Pandey sprung up into action and said, “One minute, we are not talking to you, go away. Please go away. Should we call the Police? Security?”
Afterwards, she turns toward her Muslim audience and tells them to focus on the interview while the Hindu man keeps mum on the fringe.
Rather than being objective and hearing both sides of the argument, the Aaj Tak reporter wanted to put forth a partisan bulletin which she might have succeeded in doing so if it wasn’t for the intervention of the Hindu man.
Netizens moved by Alam’s star performance
Meanwhile, netizens, impressed by the performance of Mr Alam asked him to try his hand in Bollywood. The body language, the slow build-up leading to the crescendo of emotional outburst really moved the internet audience with one so impressed that he wanted a little commission for Alam’s acting prowess.
It’s indeed quizzical that for a Muslim individual Gyaanvapi mosque which has no historical significance becomes such a passionate subject when the authorities have merely covered it so that the construction debris from the adjoining temple can not fall on it.
Kashi Vishwanath Mandir, Gyanvyapi Mosque and Aurangzeb
Imagine the plight of Hindus on whose ancestral lands a barbarous marauder like Aurangzeb razed a historic temple. Throughout its history, Kashi Vishwanath Mandir had been attacked more than once, with the final invasion coming under the Mughal tyrant Aurangzeb in 1670, who had it demolished and a mosque was built hurriedly over the remains of the same, which is known today as Gyanvapi Masjid.
The Kashi Vishwanath Mandir which stands today was constructed on an adjacent site by the Maratha warrior queen Ahilyabai Holkar in 1780. According to Hindu beliefs, the original jyotirlinga is what has now been built into the Gyanvapi Mosque.
The Hindi devotees, therefore, want an excavation that will affirm their belief and claim to the disputed site. The opposing Muslim side had however opposed the plea for an Archaeological Survey. They argued that a stay on excavation should continue to be in force, and not vacated. But this plea made by the Sunni Waqf Board and Anjuman Intezamia Masajid was rejected by the trial court.
Proving that the Gyanvapi mosque was built on the ruins of the Vishwanath Temple should not be a tedious task for the ASI as the structure and its pillars are visible to the naked eye. The only hurdle in the path is the Places of Worship Act 1991 which has also been challenged in the court.
