The Hindu twists the wikileaksPosted: March 26, 2011
The Hindu exclaims today..
It ellaborated the cables as follows
Any one, even a Hindu nationalist who reads this will be thinking that Arun Jaitly actually CONFESSED Hindu Nationalism is opportunistic. Just wait bfore starting Jaitly bash..
Below is the paragraph which The Hindu had twisted ,
” Pressed on the question of Hindutva, Jaitley argued that Hindu nationalism “”will always be a talking point”” for the BJP. However, he characterized this as an opportunistic issue. In India’s northeast, for instance, Hindutva plays well because of public anxiety about illegal migration of Muslims from Bangladesh. With the recent improvement of Indo-Pak relations, he added, Hindu nationalism is now less resonant in New Delhi, but that could change with another cross-border terrorist attack, for instance on the Indian Parliament.”
Now read on..
- The “opportunistic” is actually US staffer’s characterization of what Jaitley described – it is not even in quotes.
- All leftist say Bjp hindutva as “opportunistic”, is there anything special if a US staffer think so ?
- Why did the Hindu twist the cable by putting thoughts of US staffer into Jaitly’s mouth ?
“The Hindu” must answer for this twist…………….
post script : N Ram replies , but did not give a satisfactory answer
“the use of the word “opportunistic” in reference to nationalism or Hindu nationalism is neither my view nor my language. It could be the diplomat’s own usage,”
now how many have had courage to deny like Aryn Jaitly did ? Has Rahul Gandhi denie the “saffron” remark ?
