Terrorists can’t be Sweethearts

The modern times are fundamentally weighed down by the load of deceit, greed, conspiracy and, more importantly, terror. The recent spat between Arnab Goswami of Times Now and Barkha Dutt of NDTV is a pointer to that. Yes, Bharatiya media stinks of dirt and filth that it gathered over the years. When one digs deeper one realizes that there is hardly any remnant of credibility and integrity in the mainstream media of Bharat now.

Doesn’t the way panel experts are invited to the regular debates in the newsroom smack of an ulterior agenda? The TV anchors of some reputed channels hardly have patience to listen to the arguments aired by the guests. The talks are deliberately turned and twisted to suit their hidden ploys. Mostly they are aimed to play up the political angle of an issue, rather than promote rational discourse.

We cannot be deluded by articles published in leading newspapers and magazines which are anti-national and misleading. Some are intended to defame the majority community. Recently many stories were churned out against the Bharatiya Army which fights in severely hostile circumstances against Pak-sponsored terror groups. Not just that, the arguments and opinions put forth in those articles are like blazing flames that only raise the heat of animosity among particular groups of communities. Is it not condemnable that some famous media persons and the oldest political party of the country get endorsements from the head of a heartless terror group?

One political analyst from Delhi – Mr. KR Sharma says –‘Pseudo-secularists and ultra-liberal columnists are notoriously vocal to score their personal points. They sadistically engage in pernicious propaganda which now is proving detrimental to the nation’. What a big shame, a juvenile Kanhaiya Kumar of JNU was made a hero while the terrorists the martyrs! In the entire globe there is no country where its own citizens hatch conspiracies to defame and destabilize the land of their birth.

One wonders, what kind of toxic ingredients these elite intellectuals carry in their minds that for them the human rights of terrorists are more valuable than the lives of the hapless citizens who are killed brutally and mercilessly. Is it that they derive sadistic pleasure by giving entry to a swarm of dangerous terrorists into Bharat? Please sincerely imagine what might happen if the terrorists are called sweethearts and let to storm into the country with arms and our soldiers’ hands and legs are firmly tied! Is this not what a section of the media seems to intensely and insidiously want now, and for which they have been droning on and on?
