Let me start by saying that I am NOT a hindu extremist. The media has labelled anyone who criticizes MF Hussain- a Hindu extremist. I am proud of my religion. I CAN tolerate insults against my religion. But if the insult is out of hatred and only targeted to hinduism, I will speak out against it.

MF Hussain is one such person who hates Hindu’s. His paintings display a consistent bias against hindu’s. While muslim’s are painted as fully clothed, Hindu’s are painted as nude. Hindu godesses are shown engaging in sexual acts with animals. What is so great about it? I wonder what his daughter thinks about it. Any normal human would be disgusted by those paintings. What is so great about X rated paintings?

I know most of you are shocked by the title. As a hindu, thats the least I can say. His death has had the media singing praises about his greatness. Why isn’t this offensive to Hindu’s? The people who run the newspapers are Hindu’s.. whats wrong with them?

I feel sick by just describing the paintings. But you should know his paintings include: Nude brahmins, bare chested women in compromising positions, decapitated Mahatma gandhi along with naked Hitler… and lots more.

As a secular nation, we hindu’s go out of the way to make sure that we don’t hurt the sentiments of Muslims. The same should be expected of them. Secularism is not a one way street.

English language media is reporting that ramdev plans to raise an army. Really?

The facts: He is raising a self defense group. It cannot be called as an army. The media’s language gives an impression that he is raising an “army” with guns and rocket launchers and stuff. This is sure to scare the populace who have not heard and understood ramdev in his own words. The group is being trained to fight using sticks. You heard it – sticks.

Those who do not understand hindi rely on english news media for their information. These english media do not properly translate what he said. Whether they do it intentionally or not-I don’t know.

Congress is going out of its way to paint him in a communal color. To them, anyone who wears saffron is an enemy.

Media coverage of baba ramdev’s protest and UPA’s response indicate one thing: They associate color saffron with hindu extremism.

Hindu’s are peaceful people. We never attacked or invaded any country for centuries. In fact we are so good that we welcomed our enemies (mughals and british). That is an undisputable fact.

So why is the UPA screaming hindu terror and invoking the name of RSS?
The only reason I can think of is that they are trying to spoil the name of ramdev. They can’t stand the color saffron and anything associated with it. To them, saffron=extremism.

The media, which is supposed to be neutral, is taking sides. Articles in english language newspapers have a subtle anti-ramdev bias.

The media has to stop taking sides. They are trying to mislead people.
