Case Study by IWR   :-On Sir Salman Rushdie Media Cover Up The  Venom Mine .                                                                   


Sir Salman Rushdie, the celebrated author had a premonition that an attacker would hurt him with a sharp object. In his first interview, with the Newyorker after a near-fatal attack on him on August 2022 at the Chautauqua Institution in upstate New York, butchering a 75-year-old, a rare protagonist of the virtue of universal openness and human mind, lost body weight, his right eye, but not his sense of humor. The frenzied attacker got 27 seconds to stab all over his body before he was restrained.

Sir Rushdie’s Satanic Versus was published in 1989 and Iran’s chief Islamic leader Ayatollah Khomeini issued a Fatwah, death warrant, for his head. After that, he led a secluded hidden life in London under police protection. Then he opted for living in the U.S.A, not in total hiding. 

 Short Analysis

The attacker Hadi Matar, a 24-year-old of Lebanese descent, from California had no connection with Sir Rushdie. The Fatwah was also considered as waived, and it looked like Sir was close to normal in movement. Ayatollah Khomeini is dead. The Fatwah he ordained was 32 years back. Is there any chance that a certain religious Muslim will carry out a general directive issued before even he was born by one former Muslim religious head of another country?

In The Telegraph: 08/02/2023

The Telegraph makes a nice, quite large article on Rushdie about his interview in New York, about his Victory City, the book he finished.  

The salient point of the whole article is that not a word was mentioned as to why this murderous attack took place in as peaceful a place as upstate New York. It happened in New York, a towering place on the world map. Sir is of Indian heritage. Before settling In the U.S.A, he breathes in London. He is of a free mind, universal in nature.

Neither The Telegraph has come up with any article in subsequent issues about the assailant and his motive. Not one word about this Fatwah and such other directives issued by the Islamic religious leaders and its worldwide effect. 

Even after the attack on such a famous Voice, it looks like the media and the critics in media and political circles chose to censor that part from scrutiny.

In the Anandabazar Patrika: 08/02/2023  

Anandabazar gave 3 columns half a page on Salman Rushdie’s interview on Newyorker. It discussed his health – injuries in detail and literary matters.

The common point of CENSOR – What was the motive? What was the validity of the Fatwah? How the Fatwah of a dead religious head of one country could trigger a person in another hemisphere to run amok with such an insane intent? 

 The young man, Hadi Matar, had no connection with the famous writer. He never read any of his books. He resides in the USA –  country of the Free. Who is he? What was his theology? How this theology is applicable to a young person thousands of miles away? The newspaper has no word on these points.           

In the Ei Samay: 08/02/2023

Ei Samay placed, without any caption, a tiny picture of Sir Salman Rushdie with 36 words in writing – that’s it. 

No analysis is necessary.

In the Times of India Calcutta Edition: 08/02/2023

In the Calcutta Times Lifestyle section, in Voices column, a selfie of Sir Salman Rushdie with 34 words was printed. Not a space in the main Times.

No need for analysis.

In Indian Express: 08/02/2023

The paper placed the news in its editorial column under the title A Writer’s Courage. A wholesome report on a powerful writer put to a mentally miserable existence yet unbuoyed. 

Yes. This media also censored all the pertinent points, like the above media houses. 

In Bartaman: 08/02/2023

We do not find any news on Sir Rushdie on the above occasion. 

In The T2 Telegraph: 11/02/2023

The article believed that people almost started believing that the Fatwa had faded after 33 years. “Some colleagues criticized him for his falling” at taking on the fundamentalist propagators of Islam. However, most fellow writers and universal fan following of leaders have applauded Rushdie’s free speech advocacy. The attacker Hadi Matar, a New Jersey resident is of Lebanese descent.

Novelist Ian McEwan had the following words for Rushdie: “an inspirational defender of persecuted writers and journalists across the world”. 

In The Telegraph: 11/02/2023

The editorial IN THE BEGINING articulated at length the triumphant understanding that words are the victors. It says that the violent attack on Rushdie embodies defeat. It is a nice treatise sailing through ages, philosophies, Plato, Mark Antony, and civilizations. It traversed a lot but never had an attempt to pinpoint the motive that perpetrated the death-like scenario in a cool, peaceful auditorium in upstate New York, attended by luminaries. Not a  ‘Word’ on the role of the BOOK which made the young man turn into a savage killer.

It said that the first assault of Fatwa sent him into hiding. The second attack took the sight of his right eye and fateful body injuries.

TT spread a lot of praise which includes Mr. Rushdie’s resilience, the support of his peers, his work and his beliefs which made him into an icon representing freedom of expression. 

It’s irony of fate that TT editorial heaped praises on Rushdie for his fearless writings but nowhere addressed the real issue which bedevils the world: not a word about the motive, perpetrators, and their goal and how dangerous it is to everyone.

India is not a party to this bloody abominable episode, except that the fearless author is of Indian descent. Locations involved – U.K., U.S.A, Lebanon, Iran.

Yet TT, out of context, wrote down that in India dissent against authorities led to the arrest. It also said that violence between neighbors are created by the “powerhouse in India”.

Media Role- 

Though The Telegraph had censored the details of the origin of the Islamic Fatwa, which is necessary for fair reporting. TT however not stopped to show its usual antipathy towards India and Hindus. It is mischievous, as not only it is false but as well it is entirely out of context. Below is what TT wrote:

 “Events in India demonstrate that just expressing dissent against the ruling authorities or their policies can lead to arrest”. There would be “little violence between neighbors in the same country without the persuasive power of some – a tragedy with which India is painfully familiar”.

How deep is the loathing for India that TT in its reporting on the incident of the blood-chilling near-murder situation in upstate New York, caused by a person of Lebanese descent living in the U.S.A, obeying the diktat of an Iranian Islamic, could cite the name of India and heap some sort of blame on India. Bully boy in the schoolyard is ultimately rewarded.

Bewildering is the fact that TT preferred not to cite any of the 56 Islamic countries, with Blasphemy laws, but effected a sniper attack on Hindu majority India, a democratic country with terrific preferential laws for the Muslims.

TT does not have a word of censure for the near-fatal attack and as well no word on the servile execution by a stranger of the death order by a religious head thousand miles apart.

                                          TT has lots of flowery words that play on Rushdie’s (Victory City), his resilience, storytelling, myth-making, and freedom of expression for truth – all these making him an icon, a victor. Not a word by any media or commentators as to how to save his own life while protecting Truth and freedom of expression.

The media world in general does not have a word to address the real sin – the motive of the tormentors and how to eradicate the pestilence. 

Some pieces on Sir Salman Rushdie were really nice reading – poetic flight on “ The Butterfly Eaters” of Zeraldoda, but none do poietic justice to the incapacitated angel turned to look like Pirates of Caribbean.

The world is in real danger. It feigns to look the other way. And Taliban created Afghanistan in their own light.

Majority and Minority


Globally there are questions related to roles of majority and minority.  The
threshold which makes a community minority is not even clearly defined .What is
the maximum percentile of population to be classified ? 10% or 15% ? What is the
basis of distinction ? In different countries in different ways.
In some countries it may be religion, in some places it goes by the color of skin,
and elsewhere by basis of tribe or  cultural divide. In USA, about twelve per cent of
population is black and the majority are of white skin though both are Christian . In
European countries it is by color Nowadays they have come up with a third group-
Latino. Most of the population is Christian . In most African nations the distinction
of majority and minority is by tribe or religion –Christian and Islam.
India was a Hindu country for thousands of years. India survived onslaughts
for centuries . Only after the invasion from Arab , Middle East , Mongols, Turk ,
Moguls , Uzbeks the situation changed. . From twelfth century onward the invaders
never returned to their own land with booty collected by blood coddling tortures and
deaths on Hindus. They settled down in India to rule with peace-loving Hindus as serfs.
India went down under the control of the Muslim invaders. So for the past eight
hundred years—first six hundred years by the Muslims and next two hundred years by
the Christians—the country was run by foreign invaders. The ruling class was the
Muslims and the Christians. The majority Hindus were subjected to torments,
brutalities, persecutions and deaths in the hands of the minority. So the concept of
“majority rules” does not apply to India . During those eight hundred years—it was the
“ minority rules “ that prevailed in India The minority actually controlled the country.
Same way it is now .
However the burden of liberation of the country was upon the Hindus .At the freedom
movement participation by the Muslim population was far below their ratio of
population. Yet , the Muslim leaders played a game of blood at the advent of
independence. As rulers they liked to live with Hindus – not on equal vote basis.
They claimed for a division of the country on the basis of religion. They were
about 18% of population . In free democratic India they cannot rule India like before .
So they pressurized Gandhi, Nehru and other Congress leaders to gave in to the
Muslim demands to divide India into into three parts.
The Great Calcutta killing was kicked off by Bengal Chief Minister Suhrawardy on
16th August 1946 in which in about one week’s time about ten thousands of Hindus
were driven out and or killed .

. After that incident, the Hindu leaders instead of stern measures to stop the

carnage bowed down to the Muslims and accepted their demand of cutting India in
three parts. Two parts were given to Pakistan.
After truncating of India, Muslims made two parts into Islamic Pakistan . Then India
 left with about eight per cent of Muslims ,88% of Hindus and Hindus adopted Secular
model. The Congress leaders gave in to the minority demand and made a Himalayan
blunder by creating separate law for the Muslims in secular India. That too after
yielding to cutting of India and allowing to create Islamic Pakistan .
So even after the independence on the 15th August 1947 there is a separate law for
the Muslims for marriage and other civil matters. So Muslims can marry four wives at a
time and so population of Muslims grew rapidly. Now it is once again inching towards
pre-partition eighteen per cent Muslim. There were other facilities for the Muslim
population like Haj centers, subsidy of Haj pilgrimage whereas in their own country the
Hindus pay high price for Amarnath pilgrimage for camps, risking their lives to the
. The Hindu temples are coming under the control of the government whereas the
Muslims and the Christians have all the freedom to run the Mosques and Churches,
Schools in whatever manner they like. The Hindu establishments are coming under
the control of Government which is unheard of in any secular democracy.
Right from the time of Nehru practice of appeasing the minorities and pressurizing the
Hindus is continuing. And after coming of Catholic born Sonia Gandhi and scion Rahul
Gandhi at the center, they are doing everything possible to divide the country once
again by religion, so that the Christian world of Europe and America can take advantage
of the situation. This will appease the Muslims and the Arab world. Hindus are used to
insults & injuries, , depravations & injustices and deaths – they will accept this too, as

Flouting the constitution , special quotas & fundings are allocated to people of Islam ,
to the detriment of majority Hindus. So not only the Muslims cut out
India for their own land of Pakistan , but now in remaining part of India , as their
population growth is almost one hundred per cent , they are exercising “minority rule “
by proxy . Anti-national power-hungry political parties are
ready to destabilize India to keep hold on power.
The present Government is overwhelmed with tentacles of in-bred corruption and
faulted security of India by allowing to divulge defense secrets . The defense
armaments & resources are allowed to be compromised . To hide all these scandals
and corruption scams from people they want to continue in power at all costs.
The present ministry is therefore desperate to hold power even stooping at the nether

There should be one law for everyone. One person cannot have four wives and easy
divorce laws. Minority or majority. With the easy divorce laws Muslim minority can just
get rid of old wives . That is not a humane approach to marriage and society. That
must be stopped. The marriage and divorce laws should be same for all citizens of
India. When all persons are at par the country can prosper.
The matter is different for Scheduled caste and scheduled tribe population. They need
some kind of protection. They were at the periphery of society during those Muslim
and Christian rules of eight hundred years.
Otherwise ,the entire population is to have equal rights – that is how the country
should be—where everyone is equal before law and religion must not have any role
in governance of India. Like nations in America , in Europe. No favoritism .
India first – to be the watchword.

A Day in West Bengal as Reported in The Most Prominent Daily


Religious ceremonies have a year-round presence in West Bengal in different forms and colors. Janmashtami, Durga Puja, Lakshmi Puja, Kali Puja, Jagadhatri Puja, Saraswati Puja, Shivratri and others in between. Also, Bengalis have made Ganesh Puja, Chhat Puja, and Dhanterash their own. Festivities on the occasion of Eid are very prominent. Christmas and New Year’s are big occasions with lights, colors, and festivals with people agog in excitement. 

These are facts. But the lives of the ordinary and in fact most of the people are altogether different for most of those 365 days. 

As Reported in the Newspaper Anandabazar Patrika on 21st Jan 2023.

Page 1. – Headline 

Question to State Government by the justice of Calcutta High Court:

Why the State Government appointing the Municipal Chief in Jhalda, Purulia from the ruling party- Trinamool Congress? Show some respect to the court.

Page1- 2nd Headline

Justice Mantha was aggrieved in the absenteeism:

They do not talk of boycotts but in reality, the government lawyers are not attending the seat of Justice Mantha. On that Justice Mantha said, it cannot run like this.

If it goes this way, then the constitutional system will break down. Hearings are going on in cases involving demonstrations, agitation, and stoppage of work in Justice Mantha’s Seat by the government lawyers. The representatives from the Bar Council of India visited this court and submitted the report. It is surprising that the absence still continues.

Page 1 – 3rd Headline

Welfare schemes if voted: Kakoli

If Trinamool is not voted then you will not get welfare schemes.

                          AS REPORTED BY THE MESSENGER AS IT IS.

If you don’t vote for Trinamool, then you will not get Ration rice, Kanyashree, Swastha Sathi, etc: Kakoli Ghosh Dostidar, Member of Parliament from Barasat.

Kakoli Ghosh Dostidar:

Who is the panchayat member?

Someone said: BJP’s.

Kakoli Ghosh Dostidar: Why do you not give it to her? As you

Vote for BJP, so you will receive accordingly (eg. not receive anything).


One woman: We will not give the vote to Trinamool in the panchayat.

Kakoli Ghosh Dostidar: Nothing will happen. Will not get rice, not get Laxmi Bhandar, not get Kanyashree, not get Swastha Sathi. Will not get anything if Mamata Banerjee is not there.

A report spread on 5-column width:

In the employment of school teachers, unprecedented mammoth corruption broke out and ED raided the residential flats of youth Trinamool leaders, Kuntal and Shantanu. 

A headmaster is warned.

In Bankura, headmaster Sakhi Gopal Roy asked visiting MP Mala Roy about payment of DA to the teachers. What he got back is a threatening warning for his performance. 

Just this first page shows enormous law and order problems fulminating into violence, soaked with unebbing corruption destroying the normal fabric of life in West Bengal.

One aspect is worthy of notice – The terrifying silence of the intellectuals.

Kashmir Files


The present-day Kashmir derived its name from Kashyapamar, named after Rishi Kashyapa. Rajtarangini records the name of kingdoms there for 34 generations, dating that too close to about four thousand years. Study and the deeper study was the fabric of society there. A large number of pandits were engrossed there in pursuit of knowledge.

Muslims first came there around 1300 AD.process of depressing Hindus, the original descendants of the land, started thereafter.

“Great Calcutta Killing of 16 Aug 1946” organized by a provincial prime(chief) minister Sohrabuddin of Undivided Bengal did create panic among the congress leaders. Instead of strict action against the Muslim League and Sohrabuddin, they succumbed to their threat and agreed to part with  Mother India into three pieces and give up two pieces to Muslims to turn the secular land into Islamic land.

Relentless the Muslims are using any kind of devilish acts to kill and drive away the Hindus. Women are the victims of horror rape and abduction. The peak of killing, burning, and driving out the Hindus reached in the 1990s when killed and were given out. Unfortunately, Indian Media has a peculiar pattern of censoring the news of atrocities, deaths, and horrors on Hindus. So hardly any Hindus know the fate of Hindus in Kashmir only after traffic distribution of social media the people came to know some info only on a solitary basis. So the object of the Kashmir Files appears to be to depict horrors that came down on the lives of Hindu  inhabitants of Kashmir as it was on a clean bare etching as it happen to the Hindus 

“Freedom of Expression”


Even now question are being raise on “Freedom of Expression”
This question was raised by Big B in the KIFF programme .It sparked a debate nationwide.The elite took it as a rebuke to the Modi Government.A large section of elitists think that way. But surprisingly the baritone was voiced at KIFF,Kolkata,West Bengal, yet the media by and large failed,intentionally or unknowingly to check the records of local Chief Minister Mamata Banarjee’s record of public expression .

A hardly reported fact is that the media censors the calamity and travails of Hindus in Bangladesh.Sometimes it reaches the peak. Hardly anybody cares about it very few human right activists worked for these hapless people.Mr. Shariar Kabir is one of that very small noble group of people who cares for them.In West Bengal a small indoor auditorium meeting was organized by some locals in a distinct town. In that programme there was” shorts “ on lives of some Bangladeshi Hindus.Instantly Mamata’s Police swooped down on the premises and stopped the viewing. People in dire misery are forcibly refrained from expressing the documented facts on occasion against Hindus. 

Worst of all, the entire episode got very scanty mention in three four lines in very few mediums.
