All of this has come together in the last six months. Why did he think he could get away with such a sexist statement?e. by repetition) One may give two prime examples in this regard One is Prime Minister Modi’s much-talked about interview to a foreign news agency in 2013 (then Chief Minister of Gujarat) While asked on whether he was sorry for the communal riots of 2002 Modi had said "Another thing any person if we are driving a car we are a driver and someone else is driving a car and we’re sitting behind even then if a puppy comes under the wheel will be painful or not Of course it is If I’m a chief minister or not I’m a human being If something bad happens anywhere it is natural to be sad” But this was interpreted by Modi’s political opponents and a section of intelligentsia that he compared Muslims to dogs “For Modi the life of a Muslim is not more than a life of a puppy” so ran the news headlines And this “interpretation” repeated consistently became a “fact” in the global media The other example is that of Minister of State of External Affairs General VK Singh Asked persistently by a news channel on what the central government was doing after two Dalit children were killed in a village of Faridabad last October the minister apparently had said that it was a local matter that it involved a property dispute that the caste angle should not be cited and that the state government was doing what was necessary to punish the guilty But that did not satisfy the reporter and the minister was again asked about the role of the central government To this General VK Singh had replied “The Centre cannot be blamed if somebody throws a stone at a dog” He explained that he did not intend to draw an analogy between the Faridabad incident and stoning of a dog but that was precisely what the critics piled on In fact the Opposition demanded that a criminal case be registered against the former Army Chief under the Prevention of Atrocities on Scheduled Castes Act as he has said that “Dalits are dogs” In other words what we know to be "reality" in our media or public discourse is often nothing more than interpretation driven by beliefs values and attitudes The "truth" here is nothing more than the familiar expression of habit which in turn is because of things repeating themselves And what is more the habit is so strong that we do not even wonder “what if” or “what else” or “why not” As a result we unthinkingly categorise some politicians or analysts as communal casteist and reactionaries or Left radical anti-nationalists and anarchists Accordingly we treat what they say with utter contempt As a result what we are told to be “realities” actually becomes a roadblock to our own growth The way the likes of Swamy Modi and Singh have often been projected in our public parlance makes it obvious that more than seeking the truth our debates are essentially about ensuring that our viewpoints or impressions prevail The same can be said when we deal with Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal Depending on whether we love or hate Kejriwal his demands for more power to govern Delhi efficiently are either supported blindly or dismissed contemptuously And that is unfair This is not to suggest that these gentlemen are paragons of virtues but to make the point that they too have a right to be heard without any distortion Hearing them does not mean endorsing them By: Tech Desk | New Delhi |
