The Islamist Print And The Parochial Mandal
It appears The Print and Shekhar Gupta despise progressive Muslims, but love radical Islamists.
The Print published an article authored by Dilip Mandal headlined “Hindi news anchors such as Rubika Liyaquat and Sayeed Ansari are like Muslim leaders of BJP.”
He is the same Mandal, who has been accused of spreading caste divide and discrimination, by Makhanlal Chaturvedi University students, not long ago.
The students had alleged that Mandal and another journalist, who taught in the university as guest faculty, used to inquire about their on social media and during class hours. Thereafter, they used to misbehave and harass students of upper caste.
Yet another peek into his casteist mentality is, when Mandal accused Twitter of being Brahmanvadi for not blue-ticking his account. He had then urged people to trend hashtag Brahmanvadi Twitter on the social media platform.
Coming back on the controversial article, let us understand the piece of shit Mandal has written with a different headline “Hindi news anchors such as Ravish Kumar is like Hindu leader of Muslim League.”
Doesn’t it sounds absurd? It does.
The absurdity lies in Mandal’s assumptions. He assumes that Muslims, who criticize the uncivilized conduct of Tablighi Jamaat during Chinese virus; cite verses from Quran to attack Islamists and don’t toe Islamist lines, are betraying Islam. And, one who does this, he is a mere performer, catering to a majority Hindu audience.
On Rubika’s posting verses from Quran on her Twitter timeline, what Mandal essentially saying is – Anyone who cites verses from the Quran to criticise Islamists and Tablighis, besides donates to the PM Cares Fund is an apostate, a Murtad.
This is not surprising, a pro-jihadi article being published in The Print. Earlier too, they ran stories demonising Muslim BJP leaders Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi and others, who criticize radical Islam.
Clearly, The Print is effectively taking forward the Islamist propaganda by legitimizing their inhuman beliefs, which threaten the edifice of communal harmony and pushing India into the realm of chaos.
