#Pulwama: How pseudo intellectuals peddle lies, and foster hatred
Let me start by making a blanket statement here - an average Indian, like you and me, just doesn't care about the caste, color, creed, religion of another Indian. A non-Kashmiri doesn't hate a Kashmiri, and vice versa. Our common enemy are terrorists, and we make no qualms about it. We don't try to find their "human" side, their love for cricket team or biryani. We hate them, unequivocally. But, it is the liberal intellectuals who are problematic, and here we tell you why.
Who are these intellectuals? Or should we call them radicals?
If terrorists attack from outside, these pseudo intellectuals do their jobs from within. They operate like a mafia, and radicalize the youth by building a narrative on lies. And, the moment you call out their lies, they attack you and run for sympathy. And, mind you, they already have an army of people who can't see the hypocrisy of their masters. The funny bit is they called the other side "bhakts".
Here's an example: Lie loud, then paint yourself the victim
Rather than gaslighting the victims, @uttarakhandcops should try explaining why repeated news of attacks on Kashmiris are coming in from Dehradun. Try setting your house in order, rather than trying to discredit the victims.— Shehla Rashid شہلا رشید (@Shehla_Rashid) February 16, 2019
How do they operate and attack from within?
This is their modus operandi: Step 1: Create a lie out of thin air, that suits their narrative. Step 2: Let the army of brain-washed educated people cry wolf. After all, these naive people want to be a part of revolution, any revolution. Step 3: The folks at media houses, who are by now old and can't think of "innovative ideas", start peddling their lies collectively, unanimously, unabashedly. And, voila!
Logic be damned
A friend just said - 'It is a 1984 type situation now'. Sikhs were targeted then, Kashmiris Muslims are being targeted now. Politicians incited violence against Sikhs then, today an MLA calls for genocide of Kashmiris. Can we recognise prevent a repeat of 1984? #HateHatao— Kavita Krishnan (@kavita_krishnan) February 17, 2019
Even, authorities be damned
ADVISORY: Fake news about harassment of students from #Kashmir is being propagated by various miscreants on social media.— 🇮🇳CRPF🇮🇳 (@crpfindia) February 17, 2019
CRPF helpline has enquired about complaints about harassment and found them incorrect.
These are attempts to invoke hatred
Please DO NOT circulate such posts
And, they operate from their kingdom called Twitter
By now, we know Twitter is to Left Liberals, what China is to Pakistan. For every small and big lie, their playground is Twitter, and they have CEO Jack Dorsey's blessings. By his own admission, conservatives' employees of Twitter don't feel safe in "expressing their views". Lie, use random hashtags (#SOSKashmir), be a rumor mongering machine and Twitter rewards them with its coveted (?) blue tick. And, if a logical mind questions, Twitter will make sure to smash/block that account.
How can we deal with them, neutralize them?
In order to deal with them, we can never fall into their trap. They will instigate us, find the goodness in terrorists, humanize their barbaric actions. But, we have to put our blinkers on, and call out their bluff, one lie at a time. They have the support of mainstream media, comedians, fact checking alternate websites, and Twitter. We are emotional, and they are vile with agenda. But, we must stay put. After all, we have been taught the power of karma.
And, now is not a time to abuse them
Even if our blood boils, even if we see darkness at this hour of grief, even if we can see through their agenda and still can't do much, abuse is not an answer. They will twist every word of yours. Thapad se darr nahi lagta, intellectuals se lagta hai.
