Media Trial By Anchors, journalists and Human Rights Activists

 Have TV Studios become Court rooms?

 
What was most surprising to watch on  the TV debates of the last two days was targeted debates on Gujarat Snooping. The so called scam invented by Congress, few journalists, few Human Right Activists and the section of media sounded much like an anti Modi agenda.
           
All the participants in these debates were gunning for Modi. The final judgement was passed  .  Modi has committed grave crime and so Convicted. Because according to them, privacy of an indivisual is threatened ? Because, a woman`s private and personal life is invaded without her knowledge? Because a constitutional and human rights are violated? 

My god... where were these human rights activists when many serious human rights and constitutional rights were violated in the past of serious nature?

All  invitees on the panels by Times now and NDTV were known Modi foes who for a very long time asking for his head on 2002 riot. Known haters of Narendra Modi who just cant accept him as a emerging leader.  All are trying to get at him to finish his political existence. 

It is no exaggeration to call it a political assassination going on for last 10 years now.

They can accept Indira Gandhi with her fascist Act like emergency. They can pass 1984 Sikh riots, saying it is history now. They keep their mouths shut on Bhopal Gas Tragedy for justice?

But when it comes to Narendra Modi, they like to talk of assassination of Mahatma Gandhi and  2002 riots. 

Listen to  their demand now on Gujarat snooping ? They are asking, why Amit Shah is not coming on TV and explaining ? Why Modi is quiet?

That means...Now in Congress Raj,  TV studios are Supreme courts. Anchors are Judges. Congressmen are Prosecutors. Social Activits are witnesses and judges on the panels.

 
According to their logic...

Whenever Modi or anyone from Gujarat is accused, he should go to TV station and explain to TV anchors, journalists,  human rights activists and  politicians like Digvijay Singh, how they are not guilty of charges ? Just what do they think they are? Voice of 1.2 billion people? Or judiciary themselves?


What are these absurd demands and irrational arguments? 

Saying... Nation demands answers from Narendra Modi? People of India demand to know the truth?  Five  people in the TV studio claiming to be representing the demands of 1.2 billion people of India? What an irrational, illogical demand without any reasoning? 

Few TV channels.. Few social Activists. Few journalists. and Congress and politicians like Digvijay Singh, Nitish Kumar, Kapil Sebal, Chidamabaram represent India and its 1.2 billion people?  They have made India their private limited company? 

They have the courts to approach if they think there is serious violation of law. Why dont they exercise their constitutional rights to approach the courts ? Instead they want to hold a Khaap panchayat like trial in TV studios and pass the judgements ?

This is utter mockery of Democracy, and of our constitution and  judiciary. Nothing else. Few people in this country are trying to deliver justice like we see the Village panchayats do.



Anyone can approach the courts with their grievances. What do they think... this is a Banana Republic? Our judiciary is still active and in many cases delivered justice to people who are wrongly FIXED with politically motivated accusations by some. TV Studios are no courts.

Today, their motives are in question simply because... Has anyone from this lot so far taken the 1984 Sikh riots cases? 

Have they followed it up and taken them to its logical conclusions for justice to thousands who got killed in the tragedy and still suffering?  We know none of them have. Why not? For the last ten years these so called concerned human rights activists and fake political class with journalists on their sides have been targeting Narendsra Modi for 2002 Riots? 

Have they ever shown the same concerns for 1984 riots, Bhopal Gas Tragedy and Emergency excesses committed by Congressmen on human rights?


The 1984 anti-Sikhs riots or the 1984 Sikh Massacre were a series of pogroms directed against Sikhs in India, by anti-Sikh mobs. There were more than 8,000 deaths, including 3,000 in Delhi. 

The Central Bureau of Investigation, the main Indian investigating agency, is of the opinion that the acts of violence were organized with the support from the then Delhi police officials and the central Congress government headed by Indira Gandhi's son, Rajiv Gandhi.

In 2011, Human Rights Watch reported the Government of India had "yet to prosecute those responsible for the mass killings" The 2011 WikiLeaks cable leaks revealed that the United States was convinced about the complicity of the Indian government ruled by the Indian National Congress in the riots, and termed it as "opportunism" and "hatred" of the Congress government against Sikhs
  
Why are these so called Human rights Activists quiet on 1984 Riots and not demanding justice? Justice till today is still not done. Why? 

Is it because it was Congress sponsored riot that the media and Human rights activists are keeping quiet ? Why is not being followed like they are following to nail Narendra Modi for the last 10 long years? Why these double standards? Is this all politically motivated? 

Why are these journalists, TV anchors, Human rights Activists quiet on Bhopal Gas Tragedy? 

The official immediate death toll was 2,259. The government of Madhya Pradesh confirmed a total of 3,787 deaths related to the gas release. Others estimate 8,000 died within two weeks and another 8,000 or more have since died from gas-related diseases. A government affidavit in 2006 stated the leak caused 558,125 injuries including 38,478 temporary partial injuries and approximately 3,900 severely and permanently disabling injuries.


Bhopal Tragedy does not deserve Justice ? Why are Human Rights Activists, TV channels, Journalists do not make as much noise over this human tragedy as they make about Gujarat and  Narendra Modi ?

Why do  they only talk of 2002 Riots?  Because it is politically correct?


Is this not politically motivated campaign? Why should the viewers and readers trust media? Why should we trust the views of people in debates? How do we know, all these are not paid agents working for Congress to nail Modi on some considerations?

What is their credibility? Let them first prove their own integrity and honesty.

Their talk, their cherry picking, says only one thing prominently... They too are not honest to their profession, they are politically aligned forces and misguiding their readers and viewers.
