Re: [IAC#RG] Sorry state of media in India

Most of media today are under  the control of politicians, business houses.and religious groups . For example, Ambani led Reliance Group have several media under it's control and still want to expand the hold. So are other media in control of other business houses such as Hinduja, DMK linked Maran brothers etc. Therefore, such media can only reflect the views and priorities of the owners and cannot be honest and objective.

It is easily possible to have paid news and views inserted in the media. Most of the top journalists these days have lavish life style and have distanced themselves from the deprived and down trodden people. Gone are the days when media people used to travel in public transports to know the problems of the weaker section. . 

 Today's media in India are one more curse on the helpless citizens, who look forward to progressive and knowledgeable  analysis of scenario , that can enable the nation to chalk out it's action plans by a process of consensus and forge ahead.


In such circumstances, it is not even worth discussing about the role of media

Malhotra sahab,

Without sitting on roads, govts do not listen. Its an established fact. There have been 20 years of peaceful efforts- have you noticed that ? Once 2 lakh people gathered at Ram Lila Maidan, you would not even be knowing it ! Because, just like the Govt, the urban community is tuned to not be bothered about peaceful efforts.
If they sit on roadside, they would have been ignored similarly as thousands of homeless you see on streets. 

"Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable." 
― 
John F. Kennedy

India is yet to go through a class war, as other western countries have gone through. Thats why development in those countries is equitable. The Jat, patels, or the Naxals, or the Maoist agitation merely reflects that the class war is starting.
India merely got political independence in 1947,  the power was transferred from outside exploiters to inside exploiters. Most of us in urban society are the inside exploiters. Even the urban jats, patels, or the STs are part of the inside  exploiters, as these are siding with status quo that is highly exploitative. 



Jats are not enjoying- 30 have died, thousands in prison- but does it matter why they are suffering so much. Most people are just enjoying the plight of jats. And more are going to die, because the establishment led by RSS is a capitalist class that can only survive if  it divides the working rural class. it is  its startegy.

 Statement that agitation was peaceful for 4 days is not correct. Violence had started first day itself. Who blocked roads by trucks and tractors etc? The Police? When majority of people on the streets were those who were agitating, why did they not make effort to stop the violence and damage to property? During independence movement, when agitation resulted in violence Mahatma Gandhi decided to suspend the agitation. Leaders of the agitating community should have done the same if they were not involved.

Dear Dua sahab,

You have doubted who the looters were. Thats correct. The looted goods are found from houses of police officials- one is PSO of Munish Grover, MLA of Rohtak. Goods are found in house of another inspector as it has come in press..  So, you can imagine, if police is involved in looting, what the agitators can do.

Lets see how it started. While agitation was going peacefully for 4 days, on 5th night police, led by SP rank officer,  enters a hostel in Rohtak and selectively beats up jat students. The police enters four times over a night and do this.  The parents came- same treatment- I do not know how would people react when state itself do violence on innocents- but what happened after that is very much feasible.
I have videos where the quota agitators have caught criminals that were looting trucks. 

Media is putting a lot of onus on jats inspite of most evidence of violence, arson, looting coming from those who had no stake in the agitation. Khattar may not be leading this state sponsored violence but he was keeping his eyes shut. Rashme Sehgal, a senior reporter,  has done a unbiased coverage. See the link below: 

How the story unfolded 25 years back should be of interest to all. In 1991, yadavs were dominating the politics with Mulayam Singh and Lalu joining hands with VP Singh. The National Commission for backward classes (NCBC) with a strategy to oust jats from the OBC list, selectively  visited  Patiala and Bharatpur and stated that this community belongs to ruling class.  The lay jat working in fields of Haryana, West UP, Delhi were ignored. Yadavs managed to keep 27% quota to themselves. Since then its Yadavs who have enjoying this entire 27% of OBC quota, with some more classes who can barely compete with Yadavs. The recent SC petiton to strike down the quota to jats was by a Yadav.  It was not a stay  to say that jats do not deserve to be in OBC, but on basis of a procedural flaw by previous Congress Govt.

Since these 25 years Jats have been struggling peacefully to get the quota for them. Once 2 lakh people assembled at Ram Lila Maidan- but all efforts ignored. 
Jats are a working class community and not really smart in duniyadari. Just see how many you may find in offices at post beyond chaprasis Yet,the clamor for quota was not so much. The main reason behind this agitation has less to do with quota, but with BJP's game plan to play one caste against other. BJP preferred to fight state election on basis of jats vs non-jats. Thats a progress, a step ahead  from Hindu- Muslim divisive politics the BJP is accustomed to. Then, Mr Modi let loose a Mr. Raj Kumar Saini, MP to give inflammatory speeches against jats for through out the year. It barely ever happened in India that caste based speeches are given like this. But, BJP has started this too, and have created new divisons in society.

Jats are also wondering why the BJP govt wants to reserve entire  OBC quota  for Yadavs. After all, this community is  voting enbloc SP in UP, and RJD in Bihar. Well, its for BJP to play the game. Jats are now shifting to ally with Muslims and Dalits, its almost declared. Though jats were never supporters of RSS, they would now hound out the RSS from villages.

In nutshell, its BJP all the way doing the damage. I had never believed earlier about BJP's dirty politics, but can sense it entirely now. And, it is Mr Modi who leads the pack. Its part of his strategies to play castes one against the other that he adopted in Gujrat, Maharastra, and now Haryana.

Lack of awareness and living in our family groups made us feel good, no doubt.
Okay so we believe Shri Diwan ji as we hold him in high respect.
The question now in all our minds is why did the so called quota' agitationists', for want of a better word..Why they did not STOP the looters.
That is if looters were not the same as the agitationists.

Nothing wrong with that but having listened LIVE to one Kanahiya ji yesterday i have my doubts to the level of studies conducted in jnu.

Dear All,

Irreversible damage in absence of forensics report of videos as feared by Diwan Singh ji is the bottom line.

After Patel Reservation demand this Jat Reservation death toll is of 30 lives with more then 30,000 crore of property is turned into ash. Goondas belonging to no community enjoy the free loot.

When we follow the herd unwillingly we take a weak position of comfort with silence.

This is happening again and again as a scripted soap serial and need to be stopped.

People are driven hard by a herd mentality charged up by false videos announcing `Pakistan Zindabad`.

For `stand alone` there is no choice either to remain silent supporters for self survival or stand with them in the mob of goondas or prmote the kill in the social media as no one wants to be with Pakistan even in dreams.

We need to collectively protect this old culture of peace and trust with new outlook otherwise the politicians shall re-use this serial to divert public attention and grab more profit for their masters.

Rakesh Manchanda.

Tribune planted a false story on gangrape, and for 5 days media ran back to back coverage on gangrape by jats during agitation. 
Just wonder- no victim, no evidence, no FIR- but media is going gangbang after a single community.
Though there is no principle of collective punishment in our constitution- the people of this community were continually shamed for what they never did. 

Just like the government divide the society by playing one community against another, media too do it skillfully by mass character assassination.
