They Don’t Want You To Know About

[h=1]Some of the medias are biased, and they don’t want to you to know about it…[/h][h=1][/h][h=1]The Dalit Atrocity Story From Haryana They Don’t Want You To Know About[/h]

In the heydays of mainstream media hegemony, Orwellian newspeak was rampant in reporting. During communal clashes, if perpetrators turned out to be of saffron hue, their religious identity would be prominently highlighted. But the same would be zealously protected if the other side, the ‘samudaye vishesh’ (a term commonly used by Hindi media to refer to Muslim community), was on a rampage.

Thanks to the social media revolution, the old media can no longer indulge in such hypocrisy without being called out by a battery of awakened, discerning minds.

But old habits die hard. Post 2014, the old media began reporting caste issues the way it was used to covering communal ones. Column inches and prime time – the two most treasured assets in the media – are liberally splurged to accentuate atrocities on Dalits by upper-caste Hindus. The forces of that chimerical construct 'Brahminical fascism' are questioned. None less than the prime minister of the country is put in the dock. Not out of any concern for the poor Dalits, mind you.

If that was the case, we wouldn’t be overwhelmed by the deafening silence of the establishment media when the same Dalit is oppressed or terrorised by members of ‘samudaye vishesh’. These are uncomfortable situations for narrative peddlers. In such instances, the first instinct is to feign ignorance, to turn into Bapu’s three monkeys. If somehow forced to open eyes, ears, or mouth, outright refuse to believe it. Call it ‘exaggeration’. Wait for an upper caste-on-Dalit atrocity. Go into activist mode. Rinse. Repeat.
