Insulting Tweets against Hindus, Saffron, RSS, and BJP by Sagarika Ghosh
Pallavi Ghosh, CNN-IBN on 5 September 2012.
First came the canard from corrupt CONgress PR management Pallavi Ghosh.
Washington post apologises..will print PM's reply— pallavi ghosh (@pallavighcnnibn) सितम्बर 5, 2012
Then came the truth from Washington Post that shredded Ms. Ghosh's lies in to small pieces.
@padmajajoshi1 Might have been nice if you had checked with Washington Post before tweeting that we had apologized!— Simon Denyer (@simondenyer) सितम्बर 5, 2012
Couple of things to add: interviews were requested some time back with T.K.A. Nair, Pulok Chatterji and PM himself.All requests denied.— Simon Denyer (@simondenyer) सितम्बर 5, 2012
@kabirtaneja Its not true. No threats were issued from their side, no apology was offered from mine.— Simon Denyer (@simondenyer) सितम्बर 5, 2012

Dear Team Congress,Many thanks for your amazing support against hugely funded propaganda machine of— Sanjay Jha (@JhaSanjay) सितम्बर 1, 2012
#VoteModiOut. We won! Congratulations!
Gutter-mouth Digvijaya Singh wannabe Sanjay Jha of corrupt CONgress admitting that CONgress is funding propaganda against Shri Narendra Modi. Appalling is an understatement.
Raksha Kumar, New York Times on 26 July 2012.
@cosmicwondrous he should be ashamed for not regretting or apologising. Also, because he seems unscathed by it all.— Raksha Kumar (@Raksha_Kumar) जुलाई 26, 2012
Such is the state of journalism in India today that people write prejudiced articles full of personal bigotry and jaundiced opinion masqueraded as news. Raksha Kumar is boasting of her massively shoddy job of transcribing Honorable Gujarat Chief Minister Shri Narendra Modi's interview with Shahid Siddiqui, Editor of Urdu Newspaper Nai Dunia, for The New York Times. As per Ms Kumar's jaundiced mindset, Shri Modi is already guilty without any trial or even single First Information Report (Police FIR) of alleged crimes that he has been accused of during 2002 riots, which followed Islamic terrorist attack on Hindus in Godhra, without bringing forward even a shred of evidence against him in past 10 years. This when even the Supreme Court's Special Investigative Team (SIT) has absolved and exonerated Shri Narendra Modi of all allegations. Ms Kumar has shamelessly [sic] presumed and assumed that Shri Modi is guilty of unproven canards and baseless allegations spread against him and goes as far as calling him "shameless" "for not regretting or apologizing" for crimes he did not commit.
First of all, her transcription of the audio interview of Shri Narendra Modi is el cheapo to say the least. Her transcription is not comprehensive and is selectively censored. Her translations from Hindi to English have glaring mistakes. I doubt that she even understands Hindi. Secondly, Ms Kumar has not given any convincing argument for declaring Shri Narendra Modi as "shameless". She has not answered when did Shri Modi behaved shamelessly during the entire interview. Is Ms Kumar calling Shri Modi "shameless" because he did not witness against himself, for crimes he did not do, just to satisfy the whims of bigoted journalists such as Ms Kumar. Shri Modi has a Right to Free Speech to say what he wants and when he wants. Clearly Ms Kumar did not learn First, Fifth, and Sixth amendments to Bill of Rights in US Constitution during her education at Journalism School at Columbia University. Specifically,
No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, .... nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.It is a shame that newspapers such as The New York Times employees such sloppy journalists who do not understand Hindi and Rights of the people guaranteed in US Constitution. But then what can you expect from a person who was supposedly mentored by another Hinduphobic, Narendra Modi hater, and Niira Radia's alleged ministership horse-trading tapes accomplice, Ms Barkha Dutt.
Rajdeep Sardesai, Editor-in-Chief of CNN-IBN on 24 July 2012.
Brutal murder of 21 Hindus and displacement of 200,000 Hindus by illegal Bangladeshi Muslims under patronage of divisive CONgress govt is NOT news worthy for Rajdeep Sardesai until 1000 Hindus get massacred. Showboating egalitarianism?!
@Prasad_Paatkar 21 died in Assam, more than a 1000 in Gujarat. scale and intensity, plus logistics will determine media coverage.— Rajdeep Sardesai (@sardesairajdeep) July 24, 2012
Clearly, ambulance chasing riots cottage industry discriminates on the basis of religion of the person in the ambulance. How Secular! Who is the real Maut Ka Saudagar? Media.
John Dayal, Hinduphobic self proclaimed Human Rights activist, Sonia Gandhi's extra-constitutional National Advisory Council (NAC) member.
John Dayal in this tweet is intensionally and deliberately trying to cause enmity between Hindus and Sikhs despite knowing the fact that 1984 pogrom was committed by CONgress party goons (When a big tree falls, Earth shakes) and not by Hindus. He is a certified Asshole of worst kind!
Nikhil Wagle, Editor of CNN-IBN Lokmat on 11 November 2011.
On 9 November 2011, Sagarika Ghose allegedly faked a LIVE interview of world-renowned Dharmic Guru and Hindu Saint Sri Sri Ravishankar ji. This whole fiasco is documented below (scroll down). As soon as the story broke, of course not on any news media but on Twitter only, a tsunami of righteous emotions flooded Twitterverse and Blogsphere with demands that Sagarika Ghose should be reprimanded for the alleged fraud on the viewers and with calls for her resignation. It is common knowledge that different people react in different ways to the same situation. Some people were civil in their call and some were abusive in their reaction. We may not agree with them, but either way it is their Right to Freedom of Speech.
But not so for hypocrites in media. As evident in the tweet above by brown-nosing employee and Hinduphobe Nikhil Wagle in which he chimed in (vis-a-vis his employer Sagarika/Rajdeep) with his extreme opinion to throw people in jail just for speaking their mind. What are we communist China or Sharia-ridden Saudi Arabia/Iran? Free Speech is BASIC Human Right, can't take that away bitch!
Sagarika Ghose, Deputy Editor of CNN-IBN and wife of her boss Rajdeep Sardesai on 10 November 2011.
A fellow Internet Hindu Kiran Kumar S aptly put it,
NDTV = Milking fake tweets ; #CNNIBNLies = Milking Fake Interviews ; Dynasty = Milking fake surname. Welcome to the Republic of Fakistan!In utter disregard to viewer's intelligence and journalistic ethics, Sagarika Ghose of CNN-IBN allegedly defrauded the nation on her Face The Nation show on 9 November 2011. She allegedly misused a pre-recorded interview of world-renowned Dharmic Guru and Hindu Saint Sri Sri Ravishankar ji in a LIVE debate on 'Sri Sri on 4 day yatra in UP: should spiritual leaders take part in anti-corruption campaigns?'. The topic of the debate was to clearly caste aspersions on Sri Sri ji's anti-corruption movement. Prejudicial media has to of course question Sri Sri ji's intentions because he is a Hindu saint, and conveniently never questions political aspirations of and interference by Islamic organizations Deoband, Wakf, PFI (an extremist Muslim group which hacked the hand of a Christian professor).
Be as it may, it is okay for Sagarika to question Sri Sri ji's intentions as much as it is Sri Sri ji's Right to lead a people's movement against corruption (a noble nationalistic cause). But to, as alleged, blatantly misuse his pre-recorded interview in a cut and paste job to fool the viewers into believing that it is a LIVE interview is nothing short of immoral and yellow journalism.
Sagarika Ghose showed utter disregard to Sri Sri ji by allegedly faking his interview and projecting it to viewers as being LIVE part of an ongoing debate, essentially denying him the Right to Respond and Rebut. Even in Bharatiya Parliament, no one is allowed to accuse or quote an alive person unless He or She is present to defend his or her position. But when was the last time Bharatiya Main Stream Media acted as an ethical institution? CNN-IBN played a joke on viewer's intelligence by not informing them that Sri Sri ji's answers were pre-recorded and were being cut and paste in a LIVE debate.
Many viewers instantly caught discrepancy during the show such as Sri Sri ji's video was looping every 5 seconds (watch it in this Youtube video between 1:42 and 2:30) and immediately complained on Twitter about CNN-IBN's lies (#CNNIBNLies). Unfortunately, even after enormous uproar by Hindusthanis on Twitter, CNN-IBN hasn't taken any action against Sagarika Ghose (obviously because she is Editor Rajdeep Sardesai's wife). It instead issued a half-hearted apology which looks more like an advertisement showboating this joke of a show Face The Nation than remorse. Face The Nation... rather Fool/Fraud The Nation!
Lo' and behold, what does Sagarika Ghose do when caught? First hamam mein sab nange hain and every channel does what her channel did. Then play the gender bias victim-hood card that she loves play all the time. You allegedly did a fraud on viewers, half-heartedly apologized to the viewers, and then play a ridiculous victim-hood card. Pathetic.
This is not the first time CNN-IBN has Fooled The Nation. Dalal Media blog has well documented how this channel used fake nonexistent twitter accounts to inappropriately reflect and change public opinion. Similar to what NDTV has also been accused of in the past. Later CNN-IBN channel tendered an apology for the same. See a pattern? In January 2011, both NDTV and CNN-IBN claimed to have Mani Shankar Aiyar LIVE on their respective channels at the same time.

Smita Prakash, Editor, Asian News International (ANI) on 28 October 2011.
US-based music group Metallica was scheduled to perform in Gurgaon, Haryana on 28 October, 2011. But due to alleged mismanagement of the concert by the organizers and MTV India, concert was postponed due to technical snags. On hearing the news that concert was postponed, as a result of which the crowd got rowdy and vandalized the location. Metallica, henceforth, canceled their Gurgoan performance. Now instead of blaming dysfunctional Haryana Police and inept CONgress govt in Haryana for not controlling the crowd, elitist editor Ms. Smita Prakash showcased her shallow mindset by making insulting and disrespectful generalized remarks about North Indians. As per her, North Indians, specifically those who live in Delhi, should go to Satsangs & Jagrans only. First of all, the alleged hooliganism happened in Gurgaon, Haryana and it has nothing to do with Delhi. She should know Bharatiya Geography better. Secondly, she spoke of Satsangs & Jagrans in such a condescending way as if those people who partake in Satsangs & Jagrans belong to some downtrodden lower-class society as compared to those upper-class head-banging gang-banging drug-snorting rich-snob elitists who go to such English music concerts. Sick. Thirdly, her ridiculous generalization about North Indians and Satsang-goers was borderline racist and anti-Hindu, and very offensive.
Abhijit Majumder, Resident Editor, Hindustan Times on 21 October 2011.
In a voluntarily-admitted drunken rampage, Hindu phobic journalist Abhijit Majumder tweeted Anti-Hindu abusive rants. He abused Hindus as "Motherchod". He derided Hindu system of Varna Vyavastha as "great flaw".
Karti P Chidambaram, Son of former Finance and External Affairs Minister, and present Home Minister of India, P Chidamabaram on 22 August 2011.
This gem comes from Karti P Chidambaram, whose only qualification to fame is that he is Son of current Union Home Minister of Bharat, P Chidambaram. P Chidambaram is allegedly one the most corrupt ministers in history of India since 1947, so much so that even his dubious victory in general election of 2009 is under the scrutiny of courts. As shown in the tweet above, as per Karti P Chidambaram Anti-Hindu fascist Suzanne Arundhati Roy who rallies against Indian Union and lend support to secessionists Islamic terrorists in Kashmir and leftist Maoist terrorists in other parts of India is part of "civil society". How SICKENING is it that Son of "Union" Home Minister of India is calling a fascist & secessionist as civil society!
Pankaj Pachauri, Editor, NDTV on 14 July 2011.
In the first tweet above, Anti-Hindu leftist fart Pankaj Pachauri shows his communal fangs again by making a ludicrous statement that annual Ganesh Chaturthi festival should be scrapped to stop Islamic terrorism. It's absurd to even think of this primarily Hindu festival is cause of Islamic terror and then ask to suspend it is directly giving in to the intolerant Islamic ideology of Darul Islam which is the root cause of Islamic terrorism. Who the heck is Anti-Hindu Pankaj Pachauri to tell Indian citizens to not spend latter's private property as funds to celebrate Ganesh Chaturthi but rather use the funds as public property to build security infrastructure. Totally illogical.
In 1894, Lokmanya Bal Gangadhar Tilak transformed household worshiping of God Shri Ganesh into Sarvajanik Ganeshotsav and made Shiv Jayanti (birth anniversary celebrations of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj) as a social festival to unite all Indians irrespective of religion as one nation. To ask such pluralist Hindu festival to be cause of Islamic terror and hence be scrapped is pathetic.
Of course, demented mind continues to churn out verbal diarrhea as Mr. Pachauri conveniently tags the opposite view as communal and confirms his bias by suggesting that Haj subsidy should go to protect Mosques. Think of his ridiculous argument for a moment. Private funds of Hindu citizens should NOT be spent to celebrate Hindu festival but rather be used as public money to protect the public property from Islamic terrorists. But Millions of Rupees of Indian tax payers and Hindu Temple donation money, which is currently re-directed to subsidize private vacation of Muslims in Mecca, should be used to protect private Mosques instead of public property. How secular!
In other tweets above, Mr. Kanchan Gupta calls out Pankaj Pachauri's communal agenda. More such bigotry from Pankaj Pachauri is documented below.
Palki Sharma, CNN-IBN on 3 July, 2011.
Irrespective of the means including corruption through which Mayawati has become rich from rags, still such disgusting elitist bias shown by Palki Sharma of CNN IBN in this tweet is totally un-called for. Don't know if her discriminatory comment was because Mayawati is presumed "dalit" even though latter is a millionaire but certainly it was because Mayawati does not talk English, walk English and think English as do these spoiled brats such as Palki. Seems she is toeing her employer Sagarika Ghose's line very well.
Kushan Mitra, Associate Editor, Business Today on 23 June, 2011.
Aren't we all taught not to poke our nose in other's business. Apparently Kushan Mitra who likes to use F-bombs, "gandu" and sexist-misogynistic-degrading abusive terms such as "cunt" in almost every sentence, self-admittedly even at home, hasn't learned this lesson. This barrage of abusive rants directed primarily towards Hindu Right started when Kushan Mitra poked his nose in an ongoing conversation between Mrs. Meena Das Narayan, Editor-in-Chief & Managing Partner of Gulf Connoisseur & Editor of The Address Magazine and Ms. Nidhi Razdan of NDTV (scroll below for past gems from her). When confronted for using abusive language targeting a woman, Mr. Mitra displayed utter disregard for modesty on public forum and indifference to the fact that it may also directly or indirectly reflect on his employer's editorial standards. Later he used the infamous Indian lame-excuse "tum jante ho mera baap kaun hai" (do you know who is my Father) by flaunting his Father's credentials of being Executive Member of political party BJP. Who knows why does that matter or how does that justify his abusive harangues? He also played the same old victimhood card & cliché excuse used by some Leftist Indian journalists of being attacked by Hindu Right. Which is hypocritical because he was the one who started all this when he poked his nose in other women journalists business and even used F-bomb with one of them. And how can questioning someone's abusive rants be termed as being attacked is beyond any sane logic.
Barkha Dutt, NDTV on 15 June 2011.
Barkha Dutt is known to question others intelligence at a drop of hat, other than suing them for defamation on ludicrous charges (Search "shoddy journalism ckunte"). Especially if others question her journalistic ethics as in this case where Devendra Pai pointed to her relationship with controversial political lobbyist Nirra Radia and Niira Radia's infamous phone tapped conversations with Barkha Dutt, Politicians, Businessmen, et al about allegedly fixing ministerial posts. Expose popularly known as RadiaGate and BarkhaGate. All the tapes are available on Outlook Magazine's website. Barkha Dutt was also booed for the same during Anna Hazare's Anti-Corruption rally at India Gate in New Delhi. Watch it here. 23 years old Devendra Pai is a respected individual who saved the life of Mrs. Rajbala of Gurgaon during CONgress led govt's state sponsored police brutality on Mahatma Baba Ramdev and his followers (tens of thousands of Women, Children, Old and Men) who were sleeping at Ramlila Maidan after day long Anti-Corruption protest. Mr. Pai saved Mrs. Rajbala who is now unfortunately paralyzed for life and is the face of police atrocities on common Indian people. But for Barkha Dutt, he is an "idiot" for calling out her alleged corrupt practices.
Pankaj Pachauri, Editor, NDTV on 10 June 2011.
Pankaj Pachauri who hosts NDTV's Hindi show "Hum Log" showcased his Anti-Vedic bigotry by slandering over 20000 years old Yog & Ayurved and by ranting against Mahatma Baba Ramdev in similar derogatory tone as CONgress thug Digvijay Singh. Mr. Kanchan Gupta called out Pankaj Pachauri's for latter's shameless bigotry.
Joji Philip Thomas, Assistant Editor, Economics Times on 10 June 2011. Hat tip Piyush Kulshreshtha (@thinkerspad)
Notice the first tweet. He admits that he doesn't care about the beliefs of great Hindu saint Mahatma Baba Ramdev. Hence, he doesn't care about Hindu beliefs and faith. Hatred for Hindus, which he intentionally displayed amply by repeatedly suggesting that Baba Ramdev, a strict vegetarian Hindu guru (seer), should eat Beef. Despite knowing that Hindus respect Cow and murdering a Cow is one of the greatest sin in humanity as per Sanatan Dharm (Hinduism). Mr. Thomas should be charged for intentionally committing crime under IPC section 153.
Pallavi Ghosh, CNN-IBN on 9 June 2011.
With such prejudiced mindset, she was the one reporting for CNN-IBN from ground zero when Sonia Gandhi's CONgress govt brutalized peaceful assembly of sleeping Anti-Corruption protesters including Mahatma Baba Ramdev and his over 100,000 followers.
Smita Prakash, Editor, Asian News International on 8 June 2011. Hat tip Kiran Kumar S (@KiranKS)
While a citizen journalist Aditya Raj Kaul (@AdityaRajKaul) tweets that the crowd at Anna Hazare's protest at Rajghat unconditionally support Mahatma Baba Ramdev, "secular" journalist such as Smita Prakash had to prove their credentials by pointing out the fictitious divide.
Priya Ramani, Editor, Mint to Nidhi Razdan, NDTV on 5 June 2011.
With such prejudiced mindset against proud nationalist Indians, Priya Ramani & Nidhi Razdan should block cricketers Sachin Tendulkar and Zaheer Khan who have declared themselves as "Proud Indian" on their resp. twitter accounts.
Nidhi Razdan, NDTV on 5 June 2011.
One of the most cocky, abusive and openly prejudiced commentators on NDTV, Nidhi Razdan displays her utter disregard and indifference to the seriousness of the news at hand. Over 100,000 protesters and a world famous respected Hindu saint Mahatma Baba Ramdev have been brutalized and their human rights been violated by CONgress government, but at the moment, what does this self-proclaimed journalist thinks of doing? Drink wine to enjoy the moment.
Shashi Tharoor, Member of Parliament, Lok Sabha on 9 June 2011. Hat tip Kiran Kumar S (@KiranKS)
This incident displays the hypocrisy and subtle Anti-Hindu bigotry of Mr. Shashi Tharoor. In the tweet he is saying that he is deeply saddened due to the death of old perverted Indian painter M F Hussein whose only craftsmanship was to draw NAKED Hindu Goddesses & Bharat Mata (depiction of India as Mother) to intentionally provoke and hurt Hindu sentiments. Never did he dare to draw Prophet Mohamed, his 9 years old wife Aisha (pedophile anyone?), his daughters Zainab or Fatimah, or even draw Jesus or his mother Mary as naked. He didn't want his head chopped off, right. Anyways, seems Mr. Tharoor's state of sadness is as hypocrite as him, as documented by Ravinar in his blogpost "Shashi Tharoor: The new ‘happy-tongue’ hypocrite - Secularism means “don’t offend muslims". Following is an excerpt from it:
However, this latest smooth-talking Congress minister, is the latest in the long line of Congressmen who believe Secularism means not offending muslims, but all other communities can be offended under freedom of speech rights. He reveals this philosophy in a debate with Christopher Hitchens (Author: God Is Not Great) some years back.==
1. In the first instance Tharoor narrates a story carried in a Bangalore newspaper about a boy called Mohammad, an “idiot-boy” (No reference or connection to the Prophet as Tharoor confirms) This seemed to have angered muslims who attacked the office and the editor of the newspaper. The editor had to later apologise. Tharoor mentions that even if the article was never intended to refer to Prophet Mohammad, the editor should have been careful enough to avoid misinterpretation and should have been aware that this would cause trouble. Sure, the victim of the violent attacks was wrong and should be the one to apologise. That is freedom of speech according to Tharoor.
2. In the second instance with reference to the Danish cartoons issue, Tharoor continues the same argument. That the Danish paper/cartoonist would have known well the publication of the cartoon would cause a world wide backlash and should have resisted going ahead with it and exercised restraint. Tharoor strongly maintains that free speech/expression should not be used to hurt anyone. I suppose nobody told this scholar that “consensus” does not require a freedom of speech law.
3. It’s the third issue that is striking. The discussion moves to the M.F. Hussain paintings. Here’s where our happy-tongue minister reveals his true self. He argues strongly that it was Hussain’s freedom of expression for which he should not have faced a backlash. Well, obviously Hussain was so blissfully ignorant that his controversial paintings would cause friction or offend a whole community. It needed Mr.Happy-tongue to defend him. But that newspaper editor and the Danish cartoonist shouldn’t have exercised their free expression rights as they would have been aware of the consequences. And that’s not all. Tharoor goes on to state that Hussain paints these Hindu Gods in various forms. That Hussain had once painted Indira Gandhi as Durga Ma ! Tharoor equates painting Indira Gandhi as Durga Ma to nude paintings of Hindu Gods. Even a moron can see that the Indira Gandhi painting would be seen as a compliment rather than an offence. This is how he misleads international audiences with his happy-tongue glib talk.
Sagarika Ghose, Deputy Editor of CNN-IBN and wife of her boss Rajdeep Sardesai on 10 February 2010.
If there is one "news" channel, after NDTV, that is staunchly Anti-Hindu to the core, it is CNN-IBN which is run by Rajdeep Sardesai-Sagarika Ghose (Husband-Wife duo). Please read "Editorial slandering of Hindu symbols by CNN-IBN". Sagarika Ghose is known for threatening people on twitter with IPC section 506-507 if she doesn't agree with latter's viewpoints. Her ramblings and threats are very well documented by Reality Check in his post "Indian mainstream media showcase – Sec 507". And just like her counterparts Barkha Dutt and Nidhi Razdan from rival news channel NDTV, Sagarika Ghose is known to use filthy abusive language. The tweet shown above is an example of the same.
