Here is one of the reasons “why you shouldn’t trust Indian media”:
The news was simple to understand “Taslima Nasrin heckled by God’s own warriors in one of the God’s own check post Hyderabad”. Just another event God wanted them to do.
I read all the news items in Google taking a cue from barberindian , for the same.
“Local politics behind attack on Taslima” – Hindustan Times
“Taslima Nasreen attacked in Hyderabad” – NDTV
“Taslima heckled in Hyderabad” – Economic Times
“Taslima heckled in Hyderabad” – The Statesman
“Taslima Nasreen, Poet, Attacked in India: Men Attack Her; Other …” – The Moderate Voice
“Assault on Taslima Nasreen” – Central Chronicle
“Taslima Attacked In Hyderabad, Journalists Protest” – Newspost
“Taslima Nasreen attacked in Hyderabad” – Zee news
“Andhra MLAs, 20 MIM activists manhandle Taslima Nasreen” – Daily news
and our own Desicritics:
“Taslima Nasreen Attacked by MLAs in Hyderabad” – Desicritics
If you want news items from international media
“Muslim Protesters Attack Bangladeshi Author in India” – Voice of America
“Muslim group in India threatens to behead Bangladeshi author” – EarthTimes
See any difference ? If you still dint get it, read any Indian news item on this topic. It will be written “Taslima a renowned writer from Bangladesh… blah blah was allegedly heckled by people belonging to one community.. “
Morals of the story :
- Indian media does not give you news, they give rumours and gossips.
- No one including left, right, middle, women rights organizations , secularists, online petition makers; I_dont_have_to_work_to_do people ( Shabana Ajmi , Arundati Roy ) etc etc., seems to be bothered by this. This is secularism
- Taslima or Dalai lama, welcome to India, we give you freedom to breath and eat dal-chaval. If you do anything more you will be allegedly beaten to death!
Hyderabad, August 11: The Hyderabad police have registered a case against controversial Bangladeshi writer Taslima Nasreen, who was recently attacked by workers of Majlis Ittehadul Muslimeen (MIM) in Hyderabad, for allegedly creating ill-feeling among communities.
Moral of the this story : “Ulta chor kotwal ko date “
