You can’t keep snakes in your backyard and expect them to only bite your neighbours

Barkha Dutt, India’s one of far leftist journalist and most junior in the field of fair journalism, most beloved for her compassionate presence on Twitter has been using the otherwise noxious platform to help anti-Indians stranded in far-flung corners of the globe.

She has used Journalism with the biased view to providing sensitive information by live coverage to anti-nationals who need such information during the state of real emergencies like Kargil war and 26/11 Mumbai attack which ended up causing loss of the life of our great soldiers and innocent civilians. While her detractors have sometimes mocked her for being reduced to the post of a Twitter journalist, I was shocked by reading an article written by Barkha Dutt in a well known international news outlet The Washington Post regarding the recent issue with Sushma Swaraj, India’s foreign minister and most senior female politician in the government.

The article was regarding a recent tweet attack on Sushma Swaraj by Twitter trolls. In the article, she is claiming the attacks were from RW trolls. How could such an established news agency publish such illogical content? In the article, she is claiming that the right-wing trolls attacked Sushma Swaraj if you call someone RW Troll then how could you expect them to troll their own leaders?

As I mentioned earlier, she is an expert in publishing biased view, the same thing was done with the article in The Washington Post, The said issue is under further instigation, The couple mentioned in the media as inter-faith couple is found to have claimed a passport by providing a wrong address and with the wrong name in their application.

It was a strong reaction from the people who got angry when a hurried decision was taken by the authorities without verifying the facts, The authorities ordered the transfer of the officer-in-charge on the fake story fabricated by some media outlets to earn some quick TRP and thus by creating a propaganda they made the so-called inter-faith couple famous in no time.

Furthermore, the journalists like Barkha Dutt and team jumped in to get some cheap publicity by framing the abusive trolls as RW trolls and what not. They have even claimed that the whole episode is linked to Islamophobia.

Such a propagandist and attention seeker journalist reminds me of what Hilary Clinton once said about Pakistan:  “You cannot keep snakes in your backyard and expect them only to bite your neighbors.

The question is my mind right now is, can there be an antidote for such kind of venomous journalism?
