Major social media disaster for Govt and Media !!

Major social media disaster for Govt and Media !!

Great opportunity came in the wake of the terrible Pulwama attack and this govt blew it by openly taking advantage of this for the upcoming elections. Post the Pulwama, there was massive outpouring and support for the govt. And the airstrikes were very well received and there was jubilation everywhere.

Then came the major reversal, Pakistan f16 jets way superior to ours shot down 2 jets and took our pilot captive. And they launched one of the most devastating social media war.

Pakistanis began to taunt all the Indians on social media and started asking why india did not release any video confirmation of the air strikes when they released the video of their air fight and the pilot.

International media was already reporting that 2 Indian jets were down and 2 pilots captured. Indians both right wing and left wing were shaken by this turn of event. Govt and BJP IT cell were shell shocked and didn't know how to react. Complete radio silence.

Pakistanis with the support of their news media, went hammer and tong with the narrative that Indian govt is lying. Terrible.

Many right wingers fought a valiant war against Pakistan on social media, but when MEA accepted that 1 pilot is missing in action, they could no longer defend against the Pakistanis.

And then when the Indian media started denying, they started trending #Shameonindianmedia. Complete decimation.

Our youngsters on social media were swamped with all these messages and were shocked and shaken that their own govt and media can lie so blatantly, and began to get angry at this betrayal.

And Imran's peace talk began to trend when he said he will release the pilot so we can begin talks. And Indian right wing was portrayed as war mongering for elections.

And with USA and Russia involved, this war will never happen now even if right wing wants to use it to win the elections.

And what congress and mahagatbhandan could never do, Pakistan did. They delivered the sucker punch on the entire mainstream and social media which was in the control of right wing groups.

In the meanwhile, BJP leaders were busy electioneering, busy making ridiculous statements. Social media erupted in revolt against yeddyurappa statement that the air strikes will help BJP sweep Karnataka. Twitter was and is still trending this.

And the entire social media focus is on Abhinandan and his heriocs. Rightly the people have started focussing on the armed forces bravery and commitment instead of these politicians.

Now, the biggest trend is #Gobackmodi by Tamils. This is after such media coverage on the Pulwama and air strikes. What a mess !!

Over 400 mil Indian youngsters are on social media and they were the biggest supporters of BJP after the massive anti corruption wave against UPA 2.

Now they are openly lashing out at the govt and right wing groups. Today's youngsters are way too smart compare to earlier generations. They are not ideologically driven and they are seeing through this deception and lying.

And now this win has turned into a disaster for the govt and worse people have lost total confidence on the mainstream media.

Who is the pilot whose plane got shot down?
He died right?
Why no news about his name or anything.

Yes, his name is Siddharth Vashist
CNN / BBC reported that 2 jets went down - 1 on PoK side, 1 on JnK side.

Our news media at the same time said - nothing like that happened, but mysteriously a air chopper crashed due to technical snag and 2 pilots killed.

If Abhinandan was not captured, they would have covered that up also.

Our fake news govt and media is calling international media as fake media. LOL.

Sad but true !!

This is the lesson everyone has to learn. If you claim to be the Harischandran and put IT and ED raids on all opponents, then don't do rafale kind of deals, you will be docked in this day and age.

If you claim to be a Lord Raman and say that you are giving Rama Rajyam, then for godsake don't lie and lie and lie. You will be caught and exposed as fake.

In war, there will be reversals, and this is known to all. Why is the civilian govt inserting itself in the middle and covering up, that too in the social media age ??

This is what happens when a close coterie controls everything. If our news channels had a solid social media presence, they could have countered the massive Pakistan propaganda.

While whole of India were focusing on Wg Cmdr Abinandan we totdaaly forgot about the sacrifices made by Squadron Leader Siddharth Vashist who died in a helicopter crash in Jammu and Kashmir's Budgam district,

An IAF helicopter crashed in Budgam district of Jammu and Kashmir Wednesday, killing both its pilots and four others on-board besides a local resident.
There is no mention of how this Helicopter met with the Crash and most of the media did not give much importance to this event. 5 People have been killed and not much media coverage for them .

Glad Abhinandan is back.
Modi made a special mention of Tamil Nadu..stating that defence minister and Abhinandan are both from TN.

Abhinandan has a real nice handlebar mustache!

Right wing is crestfallen that war is very unlikely now. They desperately wanted a prolonged war, so that they can keep this hysteria on till Election Day.

Alas, it got blunted in just 2 days. Now Twitterrati has gone back to its old ways.

And right wing has to now explain the non existent development to people to get votes !

LOL.

In Modi's air strike on Batalkote, Pakistan:
  1. Indian Govt didn't provide any number but said heavy casualties
  2. Indian media said 300 terrorists killed + Mazood Azhar’s brother-in-law
3.Pakistan Govt confirmed only one person injured
4.Pakistan media finds one death, a crow.

This is from a FB Post from a man named Khalid Umar regarding how the F16 Pak Pilot met his end . I do not know the full truth of the same and so sharing the post here as it is

At times, reality is stranger than fiction.
The PAF F16 Wg Cdr Shahzaz Ud Din of No 19 Squadron flying F-16s killed in action yesterday on 27 February was the son of Air Marshal Waseem Ud Din, DCAS (Operations) of PAF. IAF Wg Cdr Abhinandan (who is the son of an IAF Air Marshall) shot down the F16 flown by the son of the PAF Air Marshall before his own Mig 21 Bison was hit by Pakistani anti aircraft gunfire and was downed and captured.
So two sons of Air Marshals fought it out mid-air up in the skies..... Wg Cdr Abhinandan (IND) in MIG & now Late, Wg Cdr Shahzaz Ud Din(PAK) in F-16. Both fell from the skies, one could not survive.
The sad part is that the Pakistani pilot who ejected in the Pakistani occupied part of J&K was hurt but alive when landed but was lynched (beaten mercilessly nearly to death) by the mob who took him as a fallen Indian. When it was identified as ‘our own man’ and taken to hospital, he could not survive. Nothing can be more heartbreaking than the untimely termination of a young life. My heartfelt Condolences to the family of Shahzaz.
The Indian pilot is returning home tomorrow to his family. In a 2017 Bollywood movie, an Indian Air Force squadron leader jet is shot down and he ends up in prison in Pakistan. The character ultimately escapes and returns to his family. His father Air Marshal S Varthaman (Retired) was a consultant for the film. His son is returning home rather sooner but another AirMarshall was not that lucky.
Life is to cherish and not to be lost to the greed of politicians and creed of the generals. Only if Pakistan could stop following the 7th century Arab terror theology these innocent brave sons of the Indian soil could live happily & in peace. It had the capacity but the continuous religious indoctrination and wahabisation, through the auspices of the junta has turned the country into a graveyard of rationality, reason and common-sense.
The subcontinent could have healed the wounds of the partition. But no attempt was made to make bridges. The region was which could have become a heaven on earth has been turned into a living hell due to the greed of a few.

Humans should learn how to behave and not take law in their own hands.

Why the F should civilians hit a soldier and take laws in their own hands?
Even Abhinandan was hit but luckily he survived.

Mob mentality should stop but is it possible?

When Hatred is being spread especially in a War like situation these sort of things are inevitable only that in this case ( if the case of Pak Pilot is true ) it costed the other side badly and we were happy to have our Pilot back in safe hands even though he got a royal thrashing in the beginning .
This sort of Mob Mentality is what the Politicians want so that people can be Polarized and you can accuse the other group to be traitors . Thankfully Abhinandan episode did not allow this polarization to take place and united people all over India . Look a Person from Tamil Nadu fighting for a War on Kashmir Border and yesterday at Waghah Border lot of People all over India ( Majority from Punjab ) were waiting in celebration to receive him and everyone all over India were glued on the TV Sets as though their own son , brother etc was to be released and he became a member of every Indian family . This is the True spirit of India and this is what some Political Morons did not want to happen and wanted to Polarize people before elections but Abhinandan's episode spoilt their plans and I am happy it happened .

True...everyone unites when there is a common enemy but I salute Wing Commander Abhinandan becos he united every type of Indian regardless of community..caste or state yesterday.

But how long can this last before political wolves start to howl again on the next full moon?

Yes Abhinandan episode was a very welcome relief especially in this hate filled environment . But I am not optimistic much as this Hawk Government will not keep quiet and try something more nasty next time to reignite the hatred .

Some Uncomfortable questions for Modi and his Bhakts regarding the current Militray action against Pakistan

One certain effect of war is to diminish freedom of expression. Patriotism becomes the order of the day, and those who question the war are seen as traitors, to be silenced and imprisoned. – Howard Zinn
The question raised boils down to this:
Govt is making a lot of noise about Abhinandan while it makes no noise about other similar deaths and there is politics in that or no0t.

While for Thirumurugan Gandhi and the likes every action of Government is fit for their dirty politicking, the public perception is different. As a part of the public I view this as follows:

Abhinandan came to notice because he was caught by Pakistan. And Govt had to make a lot of noise about abhinandan in order to get him back in the country alive.
For all those who die in the cause of nation in the war front the nation salutes each one of them for their supreme sacrifice. Period.

Tirumurugan, please do not play politics with such matters.

I am not a bhakt of any one but God and my parents. Period.

My view is, for now, this war mongering jumla is over. F16s superiority has dented any possibility of further air strikes, as Pakistan will retaliate with devastating impact. And losing wars will result in massive electoral loss, so they will not attempt any more of this til elections are over.

But this govt will continue to carpet bomb the people via the paid mainstream media on its heriocs despite losing the air battle.

Now the election jumla starts. They are convinced that Pulwama will deliver 400 seats

Let's see how the election goes. It will be really fascinating to see, how people vote and on what issues.
 
During joint military exercise with US, there are reports that despite being of lower tech MIG 21 bet F16 in 9 out of 10 times. This was attributed by US due to superior training and flying skills cum motivation of Indian pilots.
Now there is a war cry for permanent peace. And its amazing how pakistan gets away by its shenanigans,
