Persecution and Discrimination of Hindus in Pakistan

Persecution and Discrimination of Hindus in Pakistan Ranbir Singh, Chair of Hindu Human Rights Group (HHR)

The state-run electronic media, which until recently dominated the opinion building in Pakistan as the only TV channel, PTV, and Pakistan Radio were completely under control of the state, which used to portray India (Hindu) as eternal enemies of Pakistan and Muslims of the entire world. Blaming India for every happening in Pakistan. The stories of atrocities against Kashmiri Muslims in Indian held Kashmir by the Hindu Army were part of regular and essential part of every news bulletin and other programmes of current affairs. The print media, particularly mainstream Urdu newspapers, have also played their role in portraying Hindu as an enemy of Pakistan. This systematic image building has proved poisonous for Pakistani society, particularly it has made the lives of Hindus miserable. Hindus are suspected as agent of RAW and the poor and illiterate Hindus caste people are easy target to implicate in false cases to victims because of their weak socio economic status. Upper class rich Hindus may have been position to escape this attitude on the basis of their wealth, but there is no way out for poor.

BBC documentary on PM Modi 'badly researched', doesn't represent UK govt's view: British MP

New Delhi: BBC documentary on Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi “is a hatchet job. It was poor journalism, badly researched and casts smears against PM Modi which are completely unjustified,” says UK MP Bob Blackman.

The lawmaker further said the broadcaster (BBC) “does not represent views of the British government.”

Speaking to News18, Blackman said the two episode docu-series also “sought to demonstrate that the Indian judicial system could not be trusted and I am afraid that the judicial system in India is based on the British system, completely separate from politics and completely independent.”

How British colonialism killed 100 million Indians in 40 years

Between 1880 to 1920, British colonial policies in India claimed more lives than all famines in the Soviet Union, Maoist China and North Korea combined.

Recent years have seen a resurgence in nostalgia for the British empire. High-profile books such as Niall Ferguson’s Empire: How Britain Made the Modern World, and Bruce Gilley’s The Last Imperialist, have claimed that British colonialism brought prosperity and development to India and other colonies. Two years ago, a YouGov poll found that 32 percent of people in Britain are actively proud of the nation’s colonial history.

Misleading article by Cherian George who the Professor of Media Studies at Hong Kong Baptist University’s School of Communication and a former journalist.

Misleading article by Cherian George who the Professor of Media Studies at Hong Kong Baptist University’s School of Communication and a former journalist.

Chrian George fails to mention how a group of  "muslims" locked the train compartment and burnt "hindu" pilgrims alive which unfortunatly ignited riots but states  "Within 150 days of Modi becoming chief minister of Gujarat, Hindu hard-liners there were massacring Muslims."

Also fails to mention that there were no riots or revenge attacks when it was the same CM, Mr Narendra Modi on 24 September 2002, when two terrorists attacked the Swaminarayan Akshardham complex in GandhinagarGujaratIndia, killing 33 including two Sadhus

Did a group of UK MPs mislead the Britsh Parliament?

The Express Tripbue > India comes under fire in British parliament over CAA, Delhi riots


How the British Public funded BBC and British Media failed to report imparially that BOTH Hindus and Muslims were killed during the fatal riots?

Why foreign media loves anti-india, champagne socialists as columnists

“The Washington Post, for example, is spoilt for choice. Almost all the think tanks are within a 2-km radius of the newspaper’s K Street headquarters in Washington DC. They can seek out op-eds by Jeff Smith at the Heritage Foundation, Ashley Tellis at Carnegie, Dhruva Jaishankar at Observer Research Foundation (ORF), Sameer Lalwani at Stimson Center, Richard Rossow at Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) – all of whom will be less than a 20-minute walk away. These people are classified as serious experts on topics ranging from the Indian economy to Indian nuclear weapons. Yet, the newspaper’s star interpreter of India is Rana Ayyub Why?”

Why India Was The BBC's Real Target On June 24, Not Altaf Hussain

The BBC's bias against India is well-logged, and regularly railed about in the Indian press. The Hindu newspaper's Premen Addy was an especially fierce critic. He accused the BBC of being Indo-phobic, and focusing on India's poverty more than its socioeconomic achievements.Over the years, it has been called both a left and right wing mouthpiece, depending on who got rubbed the wrong way. Still, how can the BBC have such an independent agenda? For starters, it is run by a Royal Charter, and not an Act of Parliament. This means the Lordships have more say in the editorial content than public officials. Former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher claimed to have "fought three elections against the BBC" during her political career.

The Wall Street Journal

Known India and Modi baiter US-based Wall Street Journal (WSJ) has been caught yet again blatantly lying and attempting to vitiate the atmosphere. IB officer Ankit Sharma was killed by a Jihadi mob allegedly led by AAP leader Tahir Hussain and the same was corroborated by eye-witness accounts. Ankit brother Ankur Sharma too had blamed Muslim rioters and anti-CAA violent protesters for the murder of Ankit Sharma. He clearly says that Ankit was dragged by the Muslim mob while he was returning from duty when he was attacked and dragged into the building belonging to the AAP leader Tahir Hussain.

India needs to address hostile Western media

In the summer of 2014, the influential British weekly The Economist — also read by a section of India’s decision-makers — created a minor flutter by endorsing the Congress. Actually, more than being enthusiastic about the UPA-II that had completed an uninspiring five years, the magazine was outrightly disapproving of the challenger, Narendra Modi. Its argument was less focused on the future of Indian capitalism under Modi but principally centred on the BJP’s alleged programme of social divisiveness.

British-born Aatish Taseer presents ‘In Search of India’s Soul’

The reason writer Aatish Taseer signed up for the recently aired Al Jazeera documentary series ‘In Search of India’s Soul’ was because the producer didn’t want the typical Western documentary about India, in which Left-wing talking heads go on about the rise of fascism, but something that would deal seriously with the Hindu sense of hurt, perceived or real, that was causing the present conflagration.

Huffpost’s anti-Hindu propaganda is visible, yet again, from its report on Chandni Chowk temple desecration

Hinduphobic Nazi Rally held at Colors Hoxton in London

Some pissed off Hindus from the LGBTQ community brought this to our attention. A Hungama event was held at Colors Hoxton club in London recently, where again we witnessed how Hinduphobic Nazi propaganda via appropriating Run DMCs art promoted under the guise of attacking the CAB/CAA bill in faraway India.
