You can try to fix ignorance but you cannot fix malice, as is the case the Naughton and all other white christian racist oiseaules like him, that write for the 'liberal' press. No reason to waste one's breath on correcting the deliberately wrong narrative of such white racist @sshats -- it preserves the hubris of his white brethren, which is a good thing.

Besides no need to correct the worldview of your ideological enemies and adversaries, it only makes them better at messing with you in the long run. Best to let them wallow in the lies and BS they slurp by the bucketful from congresswallah scumbags who have captured the narrative space on India, in all phoren institutions outside of India. The congoons at least have the game of subverting India with the help of this JohnNaughton and his bigoted white ilk -- these guys are the losers in the long run, and that is fitting too.

Just for future reference with regards to Rahul Vaandhi:
1. Papa moved INS Viraat to A&N islands so that Mama can have a nice picnic
2. Great Grandpapa sent two Frigates to Lover's Burial at Sea ( If anyone wants reference please check recent Docu on Louis Battenburg's Shenanigans courtesy BBC. Apparently Queen Mother stopped him in his tracks to change the family name to Mountbatten from Windsor!!)

the sly scheme was thought up by louis mountbatten and the royal family used racist fatboy and resident alcoholic churchill to block it via the threat of parliament which would have squashed any attempt by louis to influence philip

One does not engage such entities in this manner. By going forward and seeking to engage, you have already legitimized their standing, and given THEM the opportunity to delegitimize you if they so desire. Do not do that.

What is done instead is that you independently take them apart while referencing them, and if they so wish they may come and engage you - on your turf and on your terms.

This narrative is being tutored by wokes/librandus. The real Jats on ground wouldn't give two sheets to this narrative, especially when communal riots break out. Case in point being West UP riots that took place few years back.

The lingayat gurus claiming they are not hindus is a relatively new phenomenon . It started because of the lingayat reservation demand led by powerful lingayat gurus who control dozens of MLAs. They also want to be counted as a different "religion" because most of these gurus and their muttas own multiple schools and colleges, so helps them get around RTE. We really don't need any external enemies, we are really good at torpedoing and sinking our own ship.

Chetak Saar,
I would not blame VK Singh needlessly. he seems to be a quintessential Army man, (straight shooter i mean). he may have tried to help based on a comment on Twitter as he is the MP for Ghaziabad. But seem to have pounced on by the "gotcha" SM wallas. this is no different that about a little more than a year ago when onion prices were rising and then Supriya Sule ji questioned finance minister Nirmala Sitaraman ji, whether she eats onions to know the pain and when she replied in negative people made memes on it saying Nirmala Tai and what not. A year later where is the Pawar scion?

One can never be too careful i suppose, but if people are trying to take everything out of context then the concerned minister also can't do anything other than going about their work and thenw e will have people complaining of indifference I suppose.

Now tables are turned against NDA. The opposition is smelling the blood and the scums in the US are waiting for regime change.

What is these tables that have been turned against the BJP? there is an uptick in infections and death rates in states that have refused to participate in the vaccine program like Chattisgarh, MH and New Delhi, and none of these are controlled by the BJP since they are not in power. If this means the opposition is going to ride in to power in these state based on their incompetence, how does that make things worse for the BJP? Opposition wanted to negotiate their way with suppliers and they have their wish, but their legendary incompetence won't help the people in these states. If the uptick in death rates continues across India (as opposed to these 4-5 states), then that may suggest cause to worry.

Guys, this is genuine feedback. Whether opposition is precepting this crisis or not, BJP would be in better shape by fighting and controlling it. This will give opportunities to the opposition. I would rather win 2024 than be right (or wrong here) on this issue. It could be all opposition fault or a foreign conspiracy or act of God, but that does not mean BJP should let the crisis just unfold. Try whatever it takes and is possible to control it.

The opposition is being irresponsible and unscrupulous and the cretin judges in the Indian high courts have joined to create a racket.
What exactly can be done to unscrupulous and irresponsible political parties that just want to lay the blame at the door of the center? Don't see how any strong arm measures to shut down the fake narratives of these state govts. is going to help. The center is just giving what the states want without relinquishing its responsibility to the high-risk groups, which is responsible and good politics. If BJP supporters want to blame BJP any way and vote Rahul Vaandhi in, they should just do that. I am sure it will all work out well once the italians are in charge again. Modi, Shah and the BJP leadership are doing the best they can, and the most vulnerable sections of society seem to understand and appreciate it -- can't say the same for the more well-off crowd.

Is the claim that all BJP states are performing as poorly as these non-BJP states? Not sure what all this hullaballoo is about. If these non BJP states eff up like they are and the citizens of these states are going to get cheesed off with the BJP and not vote them into power, what exactly is the BJP supposed to do about that, and how is that any different from today, where the BJP is already not in power?

See back in the 1990s whenever the Indian cricket team lost a match it was common for the fans to blame Sachin Tendulkar. The reason was simple, the other 10 players were mostly unreliable duds, Sachin was the only one who carried our hopes and if he couldn't win it for us then its all on him. This is the same (ir)rationale people use on Modi today, it is all Modi's fault no matter what happens.

With all their technological and economic might both the US and the entire western European continent stood naked when their flu season hit and increased covid cases/fatalities exponentially last winter. If its vans lined up outside crematories in India then it was rented freezer vans in the west that were used to temporarily hold the bodies. There is absolutely nothing the government could have done to stop the 2nd wave, yes, improving o2 supply, ventilators, ICUs etc could have been done but that's at a state level and our states (including BJP run ones) failed miserably. Brace yourself because it will get worse before it gets better and it will get better.

With the exception of Chattisgarh, its the same set of states driving up the numbers this year just like last year,ie DL, MH, GJ and PJ. Except for the hopeless MH the other 4 states will also be the first ones to begin recovering. The southern states+MH will be last ones to peak. Hunker down, stay calm and this too shall pass.

^^ Well said. We are in the midst of a wave, whether we like it or not. Have to be patient and careful.

I don't buy these lockdown measures done in a few states - they are not long enough, nor effective enough, and as last year's lockdown shows, the counts will start increasing again once restrictions are lifted and people start moving about. The only thing these lockdowns will achieve would be to kill off more livelihoods and slow down the economy. Last year, the lockdown made sense as we didn't know enough about the virus nor were we prepared w.r.t. infra and equipment. Not the case now - we now know effective social distancing and masking controls the spread, we have ample PPE, test kits, and now vaccines that are proven to be effective. So the micro-containment zones approach makes a lot more sense now, except that it is a lot more work and many states find it easy to simply lock everyone up. It's a mess.

There are mistakes made mostly by states and a lot of people. People refused to vaccinate and we let it go by.

This is basically a war. We won a battle in 2020. But we took eyes off. Govt. should give grants to companies like Serum and BB and stockpile vaccines. Instead, even now we are trying to be careful.

Kujli and Shav Sena are doing politics but we have to expect it.

Now all the vultures are blaming it on WB election. But people hold onto straws when their loved ones are dying. Can we stabilize this?

They are trying to create Trump like situation in India. They might succeed. I don't want that but lets figure out how we can retrieve the situation and think of what to do next.

What is BJP supposed to do? Efforts are on by the Centre to do everything in their power as a responsible govt should. Vaccines are being approved, manufactured, delivered. PPE, hospital equipment such as high-flow oxygen beds, drugs like remdesivir, whatever the Centre can provide it is doing so.

Now in opposition-ruled states there is a deliberate sabotage of last-mile delivery of these items, and at the same time implementation of drastic measures like wholesale lockdowns, which harm economic recovery while making the public more disgruntled.

PM is doing what he can to keep the nation's morale above water but in the end there is only so much that's possible against a pandemic. People will get sick by the crores and die by the thousands if not lakhs. The contagion will cut a destructive path through society and in the big picture there's nothing to do but wait 'til it burns itself out and herd immunity has been established.

This is scientifically true & politically a very inconvenient message. What can be done about this?

Depends on the State and location. In the end, all come to the political will and administrative capacity of the respective state CMs. UP did very well last time and now bad but hopefully recover. The same can not be said about MH, even though MH should be in a far better position.

Hello @ITCCorpCom

Do you make separate Attas for various religions?
I find Halal Atta in shops.
Is there one branded for Hindus?
BTW what do you do to wheat to make halal atta?

TTD committee "Declares" Anjanadri in Tirumala as Lord Hanuman's Birthplace..

https://swarajyamag.com/insta/ttd-appointed-committee-of-scholars-establish-anjanadri-of-tirumala-hills-as-birthplace-of-lord-hanuman

I have a strong suspicion regarding the "motive " of the TTD behind releasing this news, esp with the current dispensation that is ruling AP. Although ostensibly a HIndu Org, TTD has always been an arm of the state govt, and the Chairman etc are appointed by the State Govt.

BIF and RoL soul harvesters thrive on the differences among Hindus. They were the ones who were behind the Congress' idea of Lingayats as a separate "Religion", same ones are now talking about "Jats" as a community separate from Hindus. This move, while aimed at "clarity" and for "once and for all" decide the birthplace of a figure as revered Anjaneya Swamy, has a very possible effect of " localising" the swamy which the BIF and RoL Vultures would love.

Its because, if there is one Kavya that is widespread all across the Subcontinent, which relates all Bharat's Sacred Geography together, its Ramayana. Hence, the attacks on Rama and Sita by the BIF, because Rama is such a unifying figure of Hinduism. There is almost no place in India where there is no Hanuman temple. By publishing this, TTD has created a stir among many kshetras across India, all saying that they are the birthplace of Anjaneya Swamy. Now, Telugu media, is running with the headlines of "Anjaneya is our man", "Anjaneya is a Telugu bidda" etc, (Which is idiotic since Anjaneya swamy belongs to everyone who is a Ramabhakta. Chant His name and you can feel the presence of swamy chanting alongside you.)

Can this be a BIF ploy to create regional fissures in Hindus and fish in troubled waters? I know it sounds paranoid and far fetched, but far stranger things have happened in the past.

Its not being paranoid if they are really out to get you. And Somebody ids DEFINITELY out to get us.

simple counter point is - during the time of anjaneya/ramayana, there was no telugu. Anjaneya is Bharatha Bidda/ and telugu folks an offspring of the culture are as much descendents of the ramayana times as are any other Indian/Indic folk.

but you know.. the politics of divide practiced by these folks. they want BJP to declare Hanuman is from "some other place" and hcen show BJP as anti telugu (or a party that practices division). BIF ploy it is!

there are many interested parties who wish to push the lingyats over the edge and once separated, they plan to engulf them

once they lock on, it is quite difficult, though not impossible, to break the lock.

this is the BIF modus operandi in KAR

what sort of people live in India, nut cases who think that EVMs can be manipulated by dish antennas and towers. Mumtaz bano is probably fearful of kitchen mixies or egg beaters.

When some one cannot really explain why they are losing all their voter base., the mind takes to flight of fancy :(( .. i think some one will now come and say Modi is controlling the polling stations via satellites !!

I see your point but this letter is supposed to be a fake, it even looks like one.
These BIF'ers are crafty, they won't leave an open trail of their activities.

This is scientifically true & politically a very inconvenient message. What can be done about this?


RD sir,
Nowhere I am implying that the Center is not doing enough. Though perception is slightly turning negative - perception not reality. I am requesting that BJP overmanage this to still be in the 'right' ride of the public. Of course in doing so, no way accept the liability of state govt, particularly the opposition rule, some of which are deliberately failing so that Modi ji looks bad. It is unfortunate, but BJP should manage and act accordingly. So from just the complain, what are some other steps to take-
-Have someone very articulate give regular feedback on Covid situation. Someone like Modi ji (Not like R prasad ji or Harsh Vardhan ji). To avoid being ambushed by media, do not invite them, just a one-sided round-up of all progress.
-Do address the pressing situation. Of course all words have to be carefully weighed - do not create panic, still addresses the question
- please request public to take vaccine and not pay head to rumor (and subtly hint how it is opposition manufactured)
- People will not appreciate finger-pointing (by BJP) on who is responsible. But somewhere, someone has to subtly remind that most of the crisis has been manufactured by vested interest (opposition)
- Say what is happening in 5 days, 15 days, 2 months etc., all steps that govt is taking
- Insist on people who do not have to be out, should not be out (we don't want lockdown, but at the same time do not want unnecessary people out).
- Do fight rumor (especially if it is untrue, like 12 people being put on the pyre for their final journey).
- since this require much tu tu mai mai, don't have Modiji (Modi ji coming once in a while is fine).
Above was just the media management
- I am sure, behind the scene, everything that should be done is being done. Some of the good ones (particularly the ones if made public will not be sabotaged) should be part of the above briefing.

Fanne Saar,
the major reason for the perception, is the media. Unfortunately they are not reined in. It looks like they want to outdo what CNN did (or atleast it feels like it did) for ousting Trump, by combining all the negative news. for eg: there are a spate of shootings in the US after Biden admin has come in, but nobody spoke of racism as a key factor. Even in the recent Indianapolis incident, the shooter is now seen as mentally unstable. in the case of previous dispensation it would be white supremacy. I am in no way trying to reduce the impact of what was done but media shapes our viewpoint by constantly hammering the same narrative again and again.

None of the media will talk of Kejriwal falling asleep in an important conference with the PM regarding covid or the mismanagement in Maha multiple times (not withstanding the bolly brigade constantly tweeting about worlds best CM).
It seems the media has decided that BJP has to be defeated no matter what, even if there is no alternative or if the alternative is even worse.
The telugu media is a case study of how to constantly blame the Center. According to them, the increase in Corona is due to the multiple phases of West Bengal elections and Kumb Mela only. Because Modi and Amit Shah are campaigning in Bengal the cases are rising in the entire country.
The duffers will not have any answers if we point out that there were no elections in Maha, UP, Karnataka, Rajasthan and Kerala till recently but the cases were increasing.

As BJP is increasing from strength to strength these media persons are becoming more sadistic in their coverage of anything that can be used to tar the BJP. There is no discipline in coverage, nor trying to educate the people regarding vaccine or staying safe. Their only hope for now, seems to be to wish that something bad happens and people will only blame BJP and bring back the rag tag opposition to power.

Haven’t Mumbai and Delhi been the hotspot for the entire duration of pandemic. It’s unfortunate that two economic powerhouses and the cities that people visit the most for various reasons are administered by the BiF controlled party.

Later added: actually realized that all the metros are controlled by BiF.
