In a recent tweet Rajdeep Sardesai tweeted: ‘When you use a carefully edited clip without hearing the entire speech then you do grave injustice to a human rights activist like @harsh mander.. that the SG should misguide the SC is even more disturbing.’

Alt News carried out an analysis with a title: ‘Clipped video shared to claim Harsh Mander instigated violence in Jamia speech’.

If we analyse the tweet of Rajdeep, the words/ phrases- “a carefully edited clip”, “without hearing the entire speech”, “grave injustice”, we wonder where is Rajdeep Sardesai’s wisdom/rationality leading us to! Till yesterday, did they (Rajdeep and his cohorts) not show carefully edited clips of people whom they oppose? In this fast-paced technology driven world sound bytes do matter. Nobody has time to listen to the entire speech. Most often politician of all hues cry hoarse on misquoting their statements or or are taken out of context. Yet, these secular journalists carry out with their agenda gleefully. When it comes to the person of their choice or liking they wail. This is all duplicity.

When PM Narendra Modi was the CM of Gujarat, he was asked about 2002-Gujrat- riots and his feelings at that situation. He just said, when going in a car if a puppy (baby dog) falls under the wheels, we feel sad. Meaning to say that a tiny animal’s death also moves a human, in that case, why not human loss in a large scale in those riots? He indicated that he as a human he was moved by the riots. How did all these secular journalists extrapolate (his statement)? They said he compared the Muslims with dogs. And carried out the vilification campaign for a long time to suit their agenda. No one among them, ever said Modi ji’s statement could be interpreted otherwise. So much of grouse. Now, their own chickens have come home to roost.

It’s amazing to notice from Rajdeep Sardesai’s tweet: “without hearing the entire speech”. Why does one need to hear the “entire”? The bit/byte where Harsh Mander criticised the top court (SC) is sufficient. He said he had no faith in it, was evidence enough for the people. To sensationalise issues, secular media dissects and takes out pieces from its ideological opponents but when it comes to its sympathisers, it has no qualms in placing questions. It’s none other than the Solicitor General called the activist’s speech derogatory.

Harsh Mander filed a plea against BJP leaders Anurag Thakur, Kapil Mishra, Parvesh Verma and Abhay Verma for delivering hate speeches in the run-up to Delhi assembly elections. The court replied that it first would like to sort his comments against judiciary, then the others. When Harsh Mander is so anarchist in saying against the court, how could he appeal the same court for justice on BJP leaders’ cases?

Harsh Mander’s alleged speech at Jamia Millia Islamia on December 16 (he seemed to have said): “This fight is for the soul of our Constitution-which is love and Fraternity…The decision on what kind future you wish to give your children- that decision can be taken on the streets, and, where else–in our hearts…someone is spreading darkness, we have to light a lamp.” Harsh Mander is a civil rights activist. His kind of people give spirited speeches taking moral high ground. However, their actions are partisan. Otherwise, how else can he justify his role in the Congress ruled UPA government, as member of National Advisory Board (NAC) of Sonia Gandhi, during period he tried to pass Communal Violence Bill in which he stated that the majority community member can be booked prima facie without citing reason in a communally violent situation. Harsh Mander’s types have a heart that bleeds only for minorities. That’s the reason he participates and provokes anti-CAA agitators.

The secular TV channels always say because of the certain BJP leaders’ hate speeches Delhi riots happened. In the heat of Delhi assembly elections those leaders speeches were provocative anyway. But the riots in north east Delhi, acid attacks, acts of AAP corporator now suspended Tahir Hussain kind and gun shootings were all more ghastly. That too from the so-called “peace-loving” anti-CAA agitators! By equating both, the the secular TV anchors are doing “injustice”. Similarly, the Alt-news has become a kind of opposition news rather than fact-finding.

Now, the division/cleavage in the mainstream electronic media is clear. The secular channels so long touted themselves as rational channels in giving news. Now their hidden agenda is in the open. It’s for the people to decide why they are saying what they are saying. Mere words of “peace”, “non-violence “, “preserving Constitutional values”, emulation of Gandhi ji and Ambedkar are all used strategically.

The Left never believes in non- violence. It’s is the necessity that makes them take this stand (a tutored one). This is all a facade. They showed their violent self during the US president Donald Trump’s visit. This kind of bad portrayal of the country is no good. All this, must be carefully exposed and the CAA must be implemented.
