    BBC documentary: India has to be ready for more such attacks

    Looks like BBC is still thinking it can dictate India. The latter will work on its whims and fancies. The recent documentary by BBC on Godhra riots surely gives a perception that it is still unable to digest the fact that India has not only become independent but has crossed UK in terms of nominal GDP.

    Many are talking about the BBC documentary. We’ll get to that. But there are a few more things which I would like to highlight. Recently, Britan’s NGO Oxfam published a report saying middle and lower-income Indians are paying more taxes than rich people.  Of course, it didn’t reveal the metrics it used to prove that. The goal of this report is just to project that the Modi government is using GST to prey on lower and middle-income Indians. For the record, Income tax officials even raided this NGO last year on the allegations of financial irregularities.

    But do you know who used this data later? Indian American Muslim Council. In short IAMC. It mocked India based on the Oxfam report saying 1 per cent of rich Indians own 40 per cent of the country.

    So did you observe the pattern? Oxfam published data without scientific accuracy and IAMC used it to peddle fake news and defame India.

    This is the same IAMC which earlier objected to the word Hindu Americans. It recently slammed Indian American Aruna Miller when she took oath on Bhagwad Gita as a Maryland governor. The Indian government even booked IAMC under UAPA for spreading fake news. But it didn’t stop the organization. IAMC has been continuing to attack India. When World Economic Forum was taking place, there were reports that UP CM Yogi Adityanath would attend the summit. IAMC objected to his participation and alleged that he follows violent Hindu supremacist politics. It used harsh words for him by calling Yogi a Hindu militant monk. There are allegations that IAMC is linked to the radical Islamic organization Jamat e Islami. So there’s nothing surprising why IAMC often targets Hindus and India.

    Now let’s come to the German-backed government channel DW. This year beginning, DW published a report saying the new research suggests that violence between Hindus and Muslims may increase in 2023 as compared to 2022 in India. The reason? Growing Hindu extremism. It also called it a threat to India’s secularism, diversity and democracy.

    There is no doubt that there was communal violence between two communities in India last year. But they weren’t perpetrated by Hindus. In fact, they were attacked in several states during the hanuman jayanti, Sri Rama Navami and Ganesh Chaturthi. Reports came out that Muslims in Rajasthan planned such attacks to drive Hindus out of their area. There is so much more to say if I talk about how Hindus were attacked and killed in 2022, and one episode will not be enough for that. But for DW, it’s growing Hindu extremism.

    Then there’s the BBC documentary. The whole aim of this documentary is to peddle a narrative that Narendra Modi had a role in the Gujarat riots. It started the documentary with Haridwar dharma sansad in 2021. Now, how come it’s related to the Gujarat riots? It should’ve started with the Godhra train burning incident in which 59 karsevaks including a woman carrying a baby were burned alive. Nanavati-Mehta commission said the coach burning was a pre-planned attack. But BBC conveniently ignored this. It instead said the cause of their death was disputed. It didn’t submit any proof in the documentary.

    On the other hand, twenty years after the riots, Supreme Court gave a clean chit to Modi. Not only that, the court observed the role of activist Teesta Setalvad, former IPS officers Sreekumar and Sanjiv Bhatt in framing Narendra Modi by creating fake evidence.

    But BBC didn’t take this into consideration. If we look at BBC’s history this isn’t a surprise. The 26/11 Mumbai attack was one of the brutal attacks on India in which several innocents and foreign tourists were killed. Congress used this to set a narrative that RSS was behind this attack. Thanks to constable late Tukaram Omble who sacrificed his life in catching Ajmal Kasab alive. The latter revealed Pakistan’s role in the attack. Do you how BBC described these terrorists? As gunmen. When the news broke out that Kasab was hanged, it said gunmen Kasab was executed. It used the same word gunmen to report when all the terrorists who attacked India were killed.

    That’s the stand of the BBC. So BBC targeting Hindus and Modi by shielding Muslims shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone.

    Now there is one person who played a key role in the documentary. His name is Jack Straw. He is the former Foreign Secretary. BBC said the documentary was based on his findings. Well, Jack Starww couldn’t submit any substantial evidence except holding Modi responsible for the violence.

    How much can we trust this Jack Straw? After all, he was one of those who spearheaded a campaign that Iraq had Nuclear weapons. The attack of NATO on Iraq and dethroning of Saddam Hussain led to the emergence of the dangerous radical Islamic organization ISIS.

    Starww was suspended from the labor party in 2015 when they were caught offering services to a fake Chinese firm in return for favors. This is a glimpse of how Jack Starww used his power to bend the laws and wreak havoc.

    Speaking of the BBC documentary, then Foreign Secretary Kanwal Sibal tweeted that he was aware of the mischief of UK in preparing a highly slanted report. Sibal said he warned the envoys to not involve in India’s internal affairs.

    India has reacted strongly to the documentary. But BBC is unwilling to take it down. It’s defending the documentary saying it was well-researched as per the highest editorial standards. BBC said it approached various witnesses and experts. It describes the documentary as tensions between the Hindu majority-Muslim minority and Narendra Modi’s politics related to those tensions.

    BBC released this documentary when India was mourning Kashmir Pandits’ holocaust day. After holocaust, it even gave a platform to Yasin Malik, one of the perpetrators behind the exodus and genocide of Pandits. In an interview with BBC, Malik confessed that he killed justice Neelkant Ganjo and 4 unarmed IAF pilots which was even shown in Kashmir Files movie. But BBC didn’t take the version of Kashmir Pandits. As for the documentary, it didn’t cover the facts. If this isn’t biased, then what is?

    There’s a famous line of India’s Home Minister. “Aap chronology samjhiye”.

    Be it DW or Oxfam or IAMC or this BBC documentary…..they all attacked India at the time when World Economic Forum was organizing its annual summit in Davos. While the West is on the brink of recession, India’s growth is at an unprecedented level. Several investors are planning to invest in India. PLI has become a game changer and India is emerging as a manufacturing hub. A certain ecosystem is unable to digest this. Why would they? India is not taking decisions based on pressure from outside influence. It’s taking decisions based on what’s good for India. The Russia-Ukraine war has elevated India’s position on the global stage. So obviously this ecosystem will do whatever it can to put brakes on India’s growth. . By peddling this fake narrative and defaming Modi and Yogi, the ecosystem wants to stop investments in India. These are all part of that. India has to brace for even more since general elections are close by.

    Now, will this damper Modi’s image? We all have to remember that Modi was appointed as CM by BJP before the Gujarat riots. But after the riots he was elected by the public not once, not twice but thrice. Although US blocked Modi’s entry into the country when he was CM because of the riots, it didn’t affect his image.

    In fact, the same US invited Modi and revoked the ban after he became PM. So Modi knows how to counter the narrative. Like Modi said in UK after the surgical strike, Modi hain usi bhasha mein jawab dena janta hai.
