Of course students should be able to burn Adityanath's effigy but there is hate and falsehood in broader propaganda

In this video clip posted today (25 June 2017) by News24 TV channel on YouTube, the anchor discusses an order by the proctor of Allahabad university in Uttar Pradesh that says students cannot burn the effigy of Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath because he is some kind of "Dharmacharya".

Having viewed only a part of this interview, I offer the following cursory comments.

Students' "virodh" is obviously "political"; it's nothing but "politicking". So anchor's question is stupid.

Also idiotic and laughable is the university proctor's contention that Adityanath is some kind of "Dharmacharya".

I think Adityanath is a pretty silly kind of politician who may not even receive the perfunctory respect that people usually give to politicians.

However, the most idiotic and mendacious comments have been made by All India Students Federation's (AISF's) Rahila Parveen who repeats the stale and obviously false accusation that Modi government has been trying hard to gag dissent and opposition.

Any nincompoop who reads newspapers or watches TV or surfs the Net can see that the Media has been floating with most caustic of criticism -- and even abuse and vituperation -- directed against the Modi government right from the time it took office on 31 May 2014.

Today (25 June 2017) Indian Express, for instance, has published a very special 'Junaid Lynching' edition -- all to build the narrative that Modi government has pushed us into a situation where "Hindus" of India are openly threatening, killing and lynching innocent Muslims.

Social media has taken the cue and people have gone berserk in hollering on Twitter that 'Hindus are killing Muslims'.

Junaid's lynching is a horrible act of criminality resulting from fight between two groups of young people on a train and should be condemned, but using it to build a narrative that Modi government is getting Muslims killed is blatant falsehood and hate-filled criminal and communal act in itself.

The same false and hate-filled propaganda was spread around the killing of Zafar Khan in Rajasthan.

What Rahila Parveen and others of her ilk are doing is spreading falsehood and hatred.

'Quam' is a false concept that madly seeks to homogenize cultural diversity; it must be shunned

There is no such thing as "Sikh Quam". Anyone who believes in the so called "Sikh Quam" -- as the keshdhari discussant i...
