In the recent past there has been a tussle going on between the left and right side of political spectrum in India. A tussle which wasn’t seen before the elections of 2014. A tussle which has engulfed every person in India to take a stand on issues whether they like it or not. This is about setting the narrative and showing which side is more intolerant or in other words which of the 2 sides is actually a true torchbearer for freedom of speech as each of them claims the other being intolerant. And this intolerant issue got to its peak in 2015 when many returned their ‘Sahitya Academy Awards’ back as a protest against ‘Dadari Incident’, India was termed an intolerant country after that. So why to recap all of this?

Well we saw something really nasty on the night of 26th Feb when two very eminent personalities of India one a retired cricketer and one of the best opening batsman to ever wear Blue for Indian cricket team Virender Sehwag and the other an actor who really made his mark last year with critically acclaimed movie ‘Sarabjeet’ Randeep Hooda took on twitter for some witty fun. Now it all started with a simple tweet from Viru which was basically in good humour. The tweet went viral as with its satirical take on the whole issue , Hooda on his part liked the tweet and found it witty.

Once the tweet surfaced entire left ecosystem swung into action by abusing Randeep and Viru and started name calling.

Rana Ayyub one most vocal leftist voice on twitter even stereotyped entire state of Harayana; which is the home state of Randeep Hooda.

Barkha Dutt the known pakistani sympathiser and prominent liberal voice jumped in the defence of the girl giving it a sexist spin:

And the gem came from, with one of worst sexist tweets generalizing the film actresses as bimbette which literally means ‘A woman regarded as having an exaggerated interest in appearing sexually attractive and as being intellectually vacuous’.

Yet no so called champion of feminism objected to ugly remark. Instead when some Right Wing Twitterers objected Banerjee shamelessly defended with wierd logic.

Mihir Fadnavis comes with another gem stating 2 rich Haryanavi ganging up against 20 year old which is typical of Haryanvis again stereotyping people of Haryana. As this article on points how left lib exposed themselves about their own vile hatred over someone else using their freedom of speech.

The saddest part of this entire episode is that left leaning liberals kept abusing using the choicest word in the name of Freedom of Speech and tried to cull the dissent from Right Wing terming it as abuse.

The question is, is the Freedom of Speech fiefdom of left which when Right Wing exercises, Is termed as abuse or bigotry.

The girl clearly has a political agenda on her mind and there are proof that she has been hobnobbing with hardcore leftists like Kavita Krishnan and bigots like John Dayal since sometime. If you are getting into Politics you should be ready to face the unpleasant things also. One cannot hide behind the gender or family legacy.

Entire narrative that was set by left was the freedom of speech is only for me. If you don’t agree with my views, you are a bigot, misogynist. That’s how the whole episode turned out to be.

The girl who is the talking point of this episode appears to have a political agenda and used her father’s martyrdom to further her agenda turns out that Capt. Mandeep Singh father of Gurmehar was martyred while combating the terrorists and not in Kargil war as claimed by her.

Is the girl so innocent that she can’t even realize that if her father was killed in a war or while combating terrorists, Pakistan was directly involved in it.

This is just one of the many recent examples of left setting up a ploy to make India intolerant under the Modi regime which many regard as Hindu-Right wing. Before this there was the incident of BSF soldier Tej Bahadur whose video had gone viral about the type of food and conditions lower ranking soldiers are treated with. But an ongoing investigation has pointed out some Pakistani links. Tej Bahadur was made an hero of freedom of speech with government and army labelled as culprits. Pakistan had even used this incident to mock Indian armed forces, clearly the left liberal of India & Pakistan have similar motives. That’s why the whole current Ramjas issue also came into be when an event was canceled where Umar Khalid (Bharat Tere tukade honge..Fame) & Shehla Rashid of AISA were the key speakers. ABVP is being made to look as the culprit when they only exercised their Freedom of Speech by protesting against the said event.

And this was just last week, two weeks ago Sanjay Leela Bhansali was manhandled in Jaipur during a shooting of his upcoming movie on Rani Padmavati but as per some reports it was a reaction to movie crew firing gunshots in air. That time everyone in Indian film industry stood in support of SLB & condemned the violence but none of them came forward when recently a movie called ‘Lipstick under My Burkha’ was is being denied certification by CBFC there hasn’t been a whimper from the industry. The movie has a certain community as its basic premise which is enabled by left-lib and hence no freedom of expression here? Same way none of the so called eminent citizens of India spoke when Tarek Fatah was man handled & attacked when he went to address an Urdu Festival, he had to then leave in the end.

So the question really here is that who is actually for the freedom of speech and who is against it? Is it the right or the Left-Liberal of India? Who is the facised force here? It was congress which brought the dacorian law of 66A to muffle the voices on social media platform like Facebook and Twitter. Recently a Member of Parliament of TMC a left leaning political party named two twitter handles in Rajya Sabha where the concerned handle users couldn’t even defend themselves. They were attacked by the MP as they had exercised their right of speech and tweeted on the dire situation in West Bengal which is being governed by TMC.

We have seen this again and again over the years now where the left has propped up some or the other icon which would play victim and cry foul and this will go on till 2019 when the main battle for Lok Sabha will be fought. Let’s see who they prop up next year in 2018.

Also as the time of this article being written ABVP had filed police complaint for Gurmeher Kaur asking Delhi police to act against those who are threatening Miss Kaur on Social Media platforms with death threats and Rape Threats.

Freedom of speech isn’t one sided as left thinks. But they won’t understand that and call it post-truth and debate on it for days. But then that’s how they have been doing it for years.

In the end check this video montage on the whole who killed whom issue and who want’s peace by brilliant @superlonday.
