The headlines that were not – how The Hindu is consumed by agenda peddling
The above article is so very true.
The poison is slowly and surreptitiously injected into unsuspecting and unenquiring Indian minds. That's the idea.
And, The Hindu frequently publishes articles like this latest by Suhasini Haidar who, in this piece, equates the Pakistani falsehood peddled in the UN and India's strong replies exposing those and tags them as 'name calling'. She says that 'reality is in short supply' in exchanges between the two nations at the UN and that it is a case of 'religion disuniting' people.
Suhasini Haidar's articles are always critical of India, blaming India for everything, putting the onus on it for every incident etc. Or, as in the above, when India cannot be accused, at least equate India with Pakistan.
I have always been baffled by the so-called Indian analysts who would want to write articles on India-Pakistan or India-China developments from a 'neutral' perspective as though they are an uninvolved third party keenly observing the situation.
So, I sent in a comment as follows: When Ms. Haidar talks of 'reality being in short supply' or 'religion disuniting' or 'name calling', she is equating the aggrieved with the aggressor. Is she aware of the history or isn't she? Or, does she think that India is as equally culpable as Pakistan? If it is the latter, then she must boldly say why is it that Ms. Sushma Swaraj's address to the UNGA and the replies given by Ms. Eenam Gambhir and Ms. Paolomi Tripathi amount to lowering the 'dignity' of the UN or that of the 'common folk' of India, as she claims. I am at a loss to understand as to what motivates this desire 'to appear neutral' even when facing a duplicitous adversary at whose hands we have not only suffered a trifurcation of our land but who is relentlessly attacking us with wars, skirmishes and jihadi terrorism for 70 years
Obviously, The Hindu's moderator felt it violated their editorial board's norms and couldn't therefore be published. Just look at the comments. They are either way too silly or in praise of the article. None seems to feel the stab inflicted on India by the author.
