Where do self-styled Dalit activists disappear when Islamists target Dalits?

Recently, comedian Kunal Kamra came into media limelight for heckling senior journalist and head of Republic TV, Arnab Goswami. The incident attracted opinions from all sides with the comedian getting banned for 6 months from Indigo Airlines for his uncivilized behavior. Air India, Spice Jet, and Go Air followed suit.

His band of followers have now pulled a laughable stunt, standing up during flights and raising hoardings at airports. Talk about making lives of regular citizens difficult. Their more radical counterparts have been doing this at Shaheen Bagh for over 2 months now.

But what led to this drama? Comedian Kunal Kamra writes on his social media that he did it for his ‘Hero’, he did it for ‘Rohit’. Rohith Vemula: the PhD scholar from an underprivileged background studying at Hyderabad University who tragically committed suicide in 2016. His suicide note showed how he was disillusioned with the divisive identity politics of far-left student bodies like SFI (CPM’s student wing), ASA (Ambedkar Study Association).

Rohit’s death sparked nationwide protests, gained extensive media coverage and was presented as a case of discrimination against Dalits. Kamra and his team of liberal-seculars have been milking this unfortunate death for years, less out of love for Dalits and more to further their intense hatred for the Modi government.

These self-styled Dalit-premis dig themselves a burrow and crawl deep, when Dalits are burnt alive, beaten, raped and killed in this very country by radical Islamists. Instances of Dalits being attacked by Islamists are on a constant rise across Bharat, and the inhumanity with which Islamofascists treat Dalits, should come as a tight slap on the faces of those spreading illusions of “Jai Bheem-Jai Meem, Muslim-Dalit Bhai Bhai.” 

Why does the Kamra gang not talk on these deaths?

In January this year, a 24-year-old Dalit youth Dhanprasad Ahirwar was burnt alive by a mob consisting of 15-20 men of a “particular” community on the pretext of some dispute regarding children. Though the disconnect seemed to have settled, on the night of January 14th, these radicals barged into Ahirwar’s home, assaulted him and his family members and set him on fire after pouring kerosene.

In June 2019, Muslims attacked a Dalit wedding procession, in Dewas, MP, by pelting stones at them from the roof of a masjid. Several baratis were injured and one, Dharmendra Shinde, lost his life. Was this not persecution of Dalits?

Again in June 2019, UP farmer Vinay Prakash got into an altercation with members of “one community” for celebrating Bharat’s victory against Pakistan in the Cricket World Cup 2019. That night his hut was set on fire and villagers of Rampur Bela, Pratapgarh found his charred remains from the burnt hut. It is reported that his body was found tied to his cot with limbs cut off.

Dalits are being assaulted for celebrating the victory of their preferred political party in the democratic process. A viral video emerged in May last year, exposing how people from a particular community assaulted Dalits for celebrating BJP’s victory in Lok Sabha elections in Jaisalmer, Rajasthan.

Islamists have been assaulting, raping and murdering Dalit girls in Kerala, Rajasthan, Andhra Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, West Bengal. Where do the opportunistic Dalit well-wishers go in hiding when these horrors take place? You can read of various other cases of Dalits being attacked by Islamists, here.

Let’s get this straight: Dalits are Hindus and will remain to be an integral part of Hindu Dharma. No denying that they were subjected to unfair discrimination in the past, but the the real danger to Dalit human rights today comes from radicals of a particular ‘minority’. The horrible persecution of Dalit Hindus in Islamic countries like Pakistan and Bangladesh is a stark reminder of the fate that befalls Hindus of any social strata once Islamists hold reins of power.

The earlier all Hindus understand the farce beneath the strategy of ‘Jai Bheem-Jai Meem’ (Bheem standing for Dr. Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar and Meem for the Islamist Owaisi-led AIMIM party) and unite under the Hindu fold, the better it would be for Bharat.

As for the comedians, and other exotic Dalit-premis in that ilk, they are here to milk every opportunity and swoop like vultures over Dalit deaths. In a Dalit-Muslim conflict, this ilk will never mind pushing the Dalits under the bus to safeguard their mask of faux-secularism.
